has anyone had problems with the screen? ive had my w890i for 3weeks and the screen has cracked..ive never dropped it or anything and the shop are saying its not a maufacturers problem..has anyone else had any problems like that?
sardevs, 12 Feb 2009Hi, Does it support MPEG4?/AVI formats?. Also, The speaker volume is little low compared t... moreyup..quite low if compared to most SE model..esp walkman model.maybe becoz it is slim so the speaker installed is quite small.
My stored music file keep on missing....don know why...it deserves software update i think!!!
Zombie , 21 Feb 2009Dnt forget to carry a light source coz SE forgot a Flash and Auto Focus , Nokia ofers Carl Zei... moreERMMMM, Are you forgetting that this W890i is 'SLIM' How can SE put a Big LED on the back of it! Its too slim to......and yeah Nokia CANT offer a phone this Slim with this many features as the W890 has.... I mean Nokia's 5310 or 6500 neither of them DONT have HSDPA 3.5G or Quadband networks or 3.2MP camera!
SE W890 is worth every penny, compared to the Nokia's
can someOne please tell me if you can draw pix using this phone ala T610 or k608i? its the only reason I wanna go back to SE. i wanna buy this phone. I am choosing between this model and SE T700. which one is better? thanks
Dnt forget to carry a light source coz SE forgot a Flash and Auto Focus , Nokia ofers Carl Zeiss lens auto focus n flash with amzin clarity for almost the same price in most of the models ..definitely not beter than the best ..
Walkman's gud but there is no Flash so it scores low ,overall a slim n silent fone (not very loud /always use vibration in public place).
Observe that this phone, as many of S-E's models has a calendar application, where the reminder feature is unusable. It does not repeat. The alarm is low and short. Thus you basically miss it when you set it. And S-E has no intention of fixing it. Most newer phones form S-E has this problem.

Sometimes the coverage comes and goes but that's the phone comp... moreif you have a digital camera and ipod why do you need a phone with one?
Also he media player is brilliant and the headphones you get with it are great quality and there are many other variants of the SE headphones so the quality can be very good regardless.
This phone is brilliant!
Dint mind what he says although no AF of flash is a major downside
hows d keypad of ds phone?is it easy typing a msg using its keypad?thanks
mich, 15 Feb 2009hello guyz..which is better,t700 or w890?.......tnxBoth good in their own way!
Hi dos any one have problems with the phone when its ringing...when the phone rings it sounds like the speakers have broken the sound is terrible ans sometimes it will just randomly stop ringing but keep vibrating...also it is running very slow and signal is really bad. software update? thanks
w890i owner, 14 Feb 2009Anyone having problems with the SE Update Service software? I think it's BS!! It does NOT w... moreSE's software always works for me, then it should work for you if you really have a W890i!
Phone is currently working.
Sometimes the coverage comes and goes but that's the phone company not necessarily the phone's fault.
Camera sucks as there's AF or flash. Zoom doesn't work when using 1mb or above for shots!
HATE, HATE, HATE using SE's phone adapter to use with my "NORMAL" earphones. Media player controls SUCK!
Music quality is quite though. Just the design that SUCKS!
Gave up on phone being a media player, now that I got the newer 4G Nano to replace my aging 3G Nano!
SE W phones will NEVER be a "true" media player. It's just a phone WITH a media player feature. Camera is best suited for the C/K series.
Once my phone contract is up at year's end, may just... sigh..... consider signing with ATT in the USA to get the iPhone especially since there are rumors that a "newer" version is due out later in 2009!
Reason to giving up SE phone:
1. Updating the iPhone is easy compared to SE phones as Update software SUCKS!
2. ATT phone coverage is pretty good now in USA (or at least improved in my area)
3. iPod in iPhone is still THE BEST media player
4. Don't care about camera still I have a digital camera anyway
Won't consider another SE phone... Most are all damn pricey anyway with features that don't work well and their software/service SUCK!
Their phone quality and prices would help explain why the SE isn't doing well in the phone market. Poor technical support in USA since MOST SE phones are IMPORTED into USA anyway so SE USA don't know how to fix phones NOT sold IN USA!
Anyone having problems with the SE Update Service software?
I think it's BS!! It does NOT work!!
Tried it on home computer then installed it on 3 "company" computers and the software still does NOT work!!
Downloaded the latest version from SE!
Followed instructions to install "supposed" update as SE Media Manager popped up message stating that update was available and use Update software to update.
1. Plug in USB cable to computer
2. Remove then reinstall battery
3. Hold "C" button while plugging in cable to computer
4. Press "continue" in Update software
..... WAITING.... WAITING....FINGERS ACHING.....WAITING......
Then....Phone turned on into phone mode within 3 minutes!
Had similar problems with P1i before getting rid of it!
Now crappy software still does not work with w890i either!!
Don't have internet service on phone!
Is that method "easier" to use??? Does it even work??!
Current w890i software version....
Any suggestions to fix this darn problem is appreciated!
