Hi, I work at a local GSM shop in downtown Toronto and I will tell you straight up that this is one of the best phones I've ever seen in it's class.
It is well worth your money. And if you're into modding the phone, XS++ is on the case of cracking the CID 53 code so it's only a matter of time before you can put in your own flash themes and stuff. Pretty cool!
I have had this phone for about 5 months now, i think its a really good phone, i have the havanna gold version. its a bit better than the normal one.
dudes im gonna buy this phone in less than a week...readin all ur opinions has confused me..plzzzz tell me if this is a good phone or not!!!!!!!!!
dont try to download files then you will have a software problems. if you get the W910I new charge it for the first 5 times full and take out the charger and youse it until its flat. never leave your charger in your phone over night you will c in the long term the battary will last longer
see people dont try to download file and stuff then you will have a problems....
if you get your phone charge it for the first time until it's full and youse it until flat never leave your to charge over night then you will have a short battary live
I got this phone a week ago and I absolutely love it! it is slim, decent camera, and has loads of cool things
I believe it uses J2ME as a Java Platform. It should say so in the Specification Tab on this site.
Also to others, please don't report this phone as bad when you're having a defective issue. Simply, get it replaced/repaired. No point in down rating a phone when the problem you're having is something that can be easily fixed with a simple firmware upgrade or repair from SE.
for all u people with problems with this phone, GO take it to the place/shop where you bought it from and ask them to HELP YOU with it. There's no use complaining that the phone sucks because of the problems you have.
I own this phone and I believe it's an amazing phone ever.
If you get this phone you will regret it, it will work fine for about 2 months then start turning itself off without you knowing so you think your phone is working and it not!to get it back on you have to take ut the battery and reset it this will get more and more frequent until it gets to the point where you can no longer turn it on!the worst most unreliable phone i have ever had!
This is one of the best phones,, am definately getting one for my boyfriend who only loves sony ericsson phones...
This is really a good piece of work!!!
can everyone that has bad experience with this phone please refrain from posting your opinion
To Sonyfannomore, Katherine:
Hi, I own a Cellular phone shop in downtown Toronto and from what I'm hearing, you guys seem to have either defective phones that you should get replaced or have bloated the phone with unneeded software that's eating up it's internal memory.
I'm no fan boy of any particular brand but the SE w910i is probably one of the best phones I've ever encountered in it's class. The only phone to have beaten it's selling point is the k850i (better camera than w910i) and the w580i (cheaper version of w910i with lights!) and it's reasons are pretty obvious.
Quick tips: One of the flaws with SE phones that I've noticed is that they never give you enough internal memory to customize but this is easily remedied with it's expansion slots. Try saving all your data on the M2 expansion rather than the internal memory. You'll notice a difference in the performance of your phone and it's much easier to back things up to boot! Also, try to cut back on the amount of software that you load onto the phone; even though you put it on the M2 stick, the phone still requires to read it each time you access it, which can cause some lag times. Install only things that you deem useful in several occasions.
Now, about the battery life. If it doesn't exceed a standard of 3 days standby time, consider the phone battery defective and have it replaced (by any means) immediately. Not only is it useless to you but it can cause some serious issues to your phone.
Hope this helps. I'm not going to lie, I've seen these issues with several SE phones but this is the first time I've seen anyone have issues with the w910i. If you're really keen not purchasing a Walkman serious phone, may I suggest the Nokia 5700 XpressMusic Phone?
Can anybody tell where i can update my firmware and i mean how can i set the flash program, in the se pc suite v.3??? Thx b4
Well I have this phone for 2weeks now on the MTN network in South Africa.
Now I have had a W300i, W810i and a W850i(still do) and the W910i is by far the better, bar the fact that its missing auto focus and flash light abilities.
I recommend this handset to anyone serious about having a music based phone, though it lacks in the sound department compared to the w850i in the music depth reproduction of the loudspeaker.
I've had this phone since Thursday and so far it's been an absolute nightmare - it's a lovely looking phone but the practicality of it is diabolical - since having it - i have to turn the phone off and back on again to receive messages and no-one seems to know why.
The phone keeps turning itself off, takes ages to switch on and takes ages to recognise a charger. However when it works it's a fabulous phone - just be aware that there are alot of these phones that work perfectly and there are alot of phones that have issues with them (as quoted by Orange).
now thats unexpected... Already tried the update service (this is quite effective for me)? Or... maybe your battery has a problem, try to change your battery...
or maybe... i don't want to say this but, maybe your phone is abnormal... (i'm sorry)because my battery life is 'long-lasting'...
but i recommend to update your firmware first... hope that helps...
oh bye the way, flash lite themes means you can create themes by using Flash programs. How to use it? just use it normally (the way u set your theme)^^
this phone is really quite bad - had the phone for 3 months - sent for repairs 2 times - software problem apparently . The phone either drops incoming calls or is so scratchy that I cannot hear the other party.
Is it just my phone or this range?
this phone is absolutely amazing. i work in a phone shop and have just ordered one for myself. it's HSDPA speed is amazing. it's got the same internet speed as the e220 modem. 3.6 mbps is great
I hope u will help me again i think i still have the serious problem about the battery life it become worse it only last 1 day it's terrible!!! So what must i do?n what does flash lite themes mean? And how can i use that? To all people who can answer my question thx b4
