Patrick your W900 must hav sum messd up firmware! my W900 records videos for as long as ive got phone memory or memory stick depending where i want save the video afterwards, and another thng wen Walkman i can fastforward and rewind both VIDEOS and MUSIC. so u must hav a bug in your firmware
It's a very nice phone but what i'm having problems with is the charger port desing, they could've made much simpler ports that can easily embed on the phone without a hasle.
2ndly, the shouldn't have made long video capture dependant on the Memory stick coz if you don't have a memory stick then you can't vediorize for more than 1 min.
3rdly, the alarm feature is redundant.
4thly, there's no fast forwarding/rewinding feature in the walkman.
otherwise it's a good phone.
Thanks for the info, Tsepz. I'm getting this phone, hopefully next month. It's becoming kind of a rarity in my country and the price hasn't dropped at all.
@Kel, wel the W900 is a VIDEO RECORDING rival to the NOKIA N93, both phones shoot videos at 30fps, bt wat makes N93 beta ere is dat it shoots in .mpeg format whilest W900 does .3gp ,the W900 is actualy beta than the latest WALKMANS in most categories, it has the best 2mp camera with Auto Focus, the W900 is the ONY WALKMAN phone that shoots videos at FULL SCREEN QVGA (320x240) resolution, its got the biggest screen out of the JAVA WALKMAN PHONES! sumthng that puts the W900 in a league of its own is da fact that it comes with 470mb internal memory which is expandable to 8GB nw, the phone runs with no problem with the 4GB MEMORY STICK! another reason is that its running the higher end 3MP NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIP (GoForce 4800), ive put sum music videos that play at 30fps full screen resolution on my W900 and the fact that it has that NVIDIA GRAPHICS ACCELERATOR makes the videos luk realy gud and play smoothly, this phone rocks!
I've thinking about getting this phone. This is one of the older phones & has been on the market for quite awhile. I am worried that newer & better phones will be out soon. Plus the fact that this phone is kinda of expensive. So all you W900 lovers, please tell me the advantages of getting this phone. Would love a detailed comparison between W900 & phones from Nokia Nseries. I need reasons to choose this phone over N93. Does it by any chance lag with usage of 4GB memory card? Any other software defect? How good is mobile gaming with W900?
I am loving this phone very much the sound quality is better than the w880.
I recorded my son and used it in court the judge was very impressed.
I belong to fathers for justice a worldwide group.wow its so cool
Keep supporting SE you are not alone.
I love SE believe me.
for the guy from the Philippines:
I got my phone at greenhills, 2nd hand. They sell it around 14k-16k. The ones that sell it cheap like around 13k either don't include the original headset, box and manuals or are really messed up. I got mine for 14.5k. Really good condition. The previous owner, they say, used it for 4 months but had it traded in because she wanted to upgrade her phone. I think it helps when a girl owned the phone previously. There are less marks and stuff. Just be sure to test EVERYTHING out. The swivel shouldn't worry you. It's really solid.
Once you get your W900, take real good care of it and enjoy this wonderful wonderful phone!
@ndaru, nice to get to know someone from my country also using w900. Very opposite to u, my 3G always shown everytime, ven when i'm not want to use the network, quite funny, eh?
Anyway, the 3G network didn't show on your phone may be because of several reason as below :
- your operator doesnt support the 3 network (Currently, only XL and Telkomsel that serve 3G best, Indosat only serve 3G for Matirx user, so Mentari user will NOT able to use 3G yet)
3. Your operator provides 3G but the area you are staying haven;t been supported by 3G network (Please note that not area in Indonesia covers the 3G network)
4. you haven't registered your phone to your operator to activate your 3G.
So, may I know what operator you are using now and which area you are staying?
are you from the philippines? browse the site www.bidshot.com and you can see all phones that are for sale. i got mine thru bidshot for only 12thou pesos and its all complete and in very good condition.
@W900 Owner or anyone......
Why my w900 doesn't have GSM/3G Network in Mobile Network folder?
It's only new search, select network, search mode, and preffered network in the Mobile Network folder.
Is it something wrong with my firmware? or anything else?
@ bluepotato bidshot!? where is it located
is that a shop? that's the 1st tym i heard it..*stewpid* waiting for your reply.
actually, slim phones are less durable than big fatty phones like this one. and let me tell you that this is very sturdy and reliable as SE always makes solid construction out of their phones. the only already died issue is their joystick used before the K750.
@ mykster™ dont buy at greenhills, the gave an ordinary headset and not the HPM-85. try posting @ bidshot. I got my w900i there cheap but in very good condition. im loving this phone!!!
there's a lot of positive terms to describe this fone but i'm just worrying about swivel most of the fone folded type,slide or swivel is sensitive how u can assure me guyz it's durable sorry for being so skeptical... i'm dying to get this fone
The W900 is alot beta than the W810, even thou the W810 is a brilliant phone,the W900 is just way beta
@noname, i can only tell you that i sold my w810 to get the new w900 and i'm prouder to hold w900 and there are some improvement on w900 than w810, so i strongly suggest you to buy w900 than any available phone at the moment, it can even compared and win over some new released phones.
@ bluepotato, i have never had that charging error,maybe ther is sumthng wrong with your battery or maybe its a bug that comes with the new firmware. unfortunetly you cant set different ringtones for different Profiles, you can only set ringtones in SOUNDS and ALERTS if ur W900 is vodafone branded, or in SOUND SETTINGS if ur W900 is not branded
the W900 is realy durable and solid, ive dropd mine so many times and its stil working perfectly and luks as gud as new especialy in day light. @ Mykster, you wil not be dissapointed
is there anybody could tell me regarding the durability of the w900 bcoz i'm planning to buy a 2nd hand @ greenhills so i'm a little bit skeptical so pls give me a feed back this is urgent so i can buy this fone & i wish my credit card will never be declined again wahe3...
