i've had my W900 for a fortnight. anyone who disses this phone has either not used it or is feeling bitter and twisted because they bought a different make/model. a sony ericsson is fine if you have 3 or 4 spare batteries and don't mind paying over the odds for memory cards!
but,i agree that sony product(w900) cannot save up to 100 massage.
better get nokia phone.
my suggestion will be either K750i or W800i cause w900i is lower series compare both models.
K750i is around RM1600
W800i is around RM18xx
For me ..I will go for K750i then only think about the memory expansion later .. believe the price for memory stick will drop.
sony phone cannot save more massage.but...as i surf this survey,
as someone mention that w900 cannot save more than 100 sms.i change my mind to get sony phone.i think better switch to nokia phone.that can save more then 1000sms.!
i love to hear that from nokia.hope sony can follow step from nokia.
just bought this phone a week ago.i think better get nokia phone.w900 cannot save more then 100 message.nokia phone can save up to 1000 message!!!
FYI: the video recording on the W900 is much better than W800/K750, but its not better than my N70. maybe its due to the format of recording. (mpeg4 Vs. 3gp)
i used b4 this w900i .
that's w900i software have problem.
very lagging and then the chinese word many can't write .
wish have new software fix this problem .
To the person below. Get Vodafone to change the battery. Mine hardly lasted a day, so vodafone changed the battery. Just recharged for the second tome after 30 hours. I had to recharge the 1st battery after 4 hours. Have it locked to 2g now which helps though. Only switch 3g on when i want to use it
Thanks Acid for the link. I also get error 404 when I try to connect to TV. I'm going to take it to the store tommorrow and have them check it out. I still don't now how to extend the recording time for the video recorder. Are we meant to charge the battery for over 10 hours the first time we charge the phone because I've changed it to 2G and it stil doesn't last more than 1 day? Anyone got any ideas?
cn u put passwords in dis fone and if u cn on wat and cn u access full internet websyts such as ebay or hotmail e.c.t thxs!!
Ah, ok I think I understand. I reread your post a few times Ken and please correct me if I'm wrong. The push e-mail support is pretty close to real-time e-mail checking. So it does actually alert you when new messages arrive without requiring you to check manually. If that's the case it's exactly what I'm looking for!
yes how loud is the sound on this? is it anywhere near the loudness of the w550? the speaker on the back of the phone looks big enough for a phone. also does it have good bass and can you listen to songs without using your earphones?
Thanks Ken and Acid. I'm sorry about the w800 mistake. I actually meant that Vodafone UMTS allows free e-mailing (within 8MB) which is more attractive to me than paying per KB through GPRS.
I've been able to find very limited info on what "push e-mail" is exactly but so far it sounds to me like something the e-mail server would have to support. I hope I'm mistaken because as a webdeveloper I know of no servers that *push* e-mail alerts and I doubt there are many that do. Could you explain shortly or point me to a site?
I'm just hoping it's possible for the phone to (1) alert me automatically when I get mail, (2) allow me to choose what to download (headers/body/attatchments so I can exclude huge attatchments) and (3) reply to them. For anyone who's interested, what I got from sonyericsson.com is the following: "Integrated e-mail client with inbox, outbox, multiple functions including composing and sending e-mail." Unfortunately it sounds like a single-account deal but bearable enough.
nDbx (no name)- we want 3g when we are on the net or making video phone calls. it is an extra like infrared and bluetooth; and decreases your phones battery life. so just like with infrared and bluetooth,when we are not using 3G weswitch to 2G to save battery power.
if you want instructions( ) posted it on the previous page.oh i'm sorry the moderators have deleted someposts to make the server run stablely. anyway, just go to connectivity->network->2g
the phone will automatically switch it back on, when u open a 3 application/task
I can't get the tv button in the entertainment option to work with vodafone tv. It comes up with a 404 error. It's really annoying me. Anyone else has this problem? And have you been able to sort it out if you did?
Hi to anyone that want to know the lunch date for other networks, it will be late february because vodafone has got the phone all to themselves for 3 months. I have just got my w900i sim free in white. It amazing, the best phone i have had and i have had a fair few phone in my life time.
Could anyone whos got a w900i tell me what the sound quality like is it better than the w800i, e.g has it got more bass. please tell me
OMG you guys HELP!!! I just got my SE w800i and it was a DISASTER! My cousin has a k750i and it works beautifully. Anyway so I sent it back, really I'm exaggerating but seriously nothing with the messaging (MMS, SMS, E-mail) the internet was never able to connect and in fact always froze the phone whenever I tried to connect. I have T-Mobile USA, both they and SE tried to set up the phone and NOTHING worked. I'm going crazy now without it, NO MUSIC :*(
Anyway the drama is over for now, but I need to buy a new phone- now that I was spoiled by the features of the w800i I naturally want one that is close. Well I've come down to 2 phones the SE w900i and NOKIA n80, both are clunkers but I don't care as long as they can do what I need them do to (play music, good camera, internet, messaging, and phone calls of course) the other stuff is secondary.
What do you guys/gals thinks? Do you have any other phone suggestions with similar/better features? THANKS!
it is a real fine phone, lack is that is a little big but good features correct the design failure, i am planing on buying it now cause i'we given up waiting for the samsung x800 to come out and also this one is far more better. now i have a little question: is it posible to transfer games downloaded frrom the net and put them on the phone? i'll appriciate your answer.
I just bought this phone on Ebay and it effing rocks!!! Although its larger than other phones; the camera on features rock!!! And MP3 as ringtone quality is GREAT!!! Same with sound quailty all around!!! GAHHHH; its awesome!!! ZOOM ROCKS!!!
can u put passwords on this lyk u cn on da samsung d500, on ur music, images, videos e.c.t. also cn u put passwords on ur fonebook so no1 cn go snoopin' in it thxs!!
