i've been using this phone for the last 1.8 years. at first I was disappointed. There are not much features. camera is poor, audio quality is ok, display is oK. the build quality is poor. my phone got discolored just after few months. But it has been working fine for the last 1.8 yrs. Battery life is very good. It restarts some times....
If you are thinking of buying this phone now.. then i would say NOOOO.. there are loads of phones with more advanced features and cheaper than this phone..

Anonymous, 17 Mar 2010i need to know if the unit is wifi ready?Nope, sorry man no wifi :(
i solved the restart or cannot start problem by scratching the battery contact to ensure good contact.
For 6mth, is working fine without any incident.
i think the reason why this phone keep restart because we use the flash menu themes.....

First you tell us not to buy one because we'll regret it. Then you say it's not bad at all. What on earth do you mean?
I had problems with my first unit (Vodafone branding) that I bought when prices started dropping seriously, and I had to replace it due to constant reboots. Even software upgrade didn't fix it.
In Portugal we have a "reflection period" that covers D.O.A. and other reasons that you don't have to explain. I exchanged mine and got a brand new one immediately. Added a 4GB memory card and filled it with a big part of my CD collection.
Worked flawless for more than one year until it was stolen at a local pub. :-(
Even if the slide seems wobbly when open it's sturdy enough for my not so kind phone handling.
The gimmicks like shake control and the 2 game/photo keys could be replaced with a flash on the camera.
This would make a very nice phone, with powerful sound even with the supplied earphones, good battery life and a confortable keyboard.
i dont recomend this phone it isnt good at all always freezes do not buy you will regret i promis you. but its not that bad.....
I also have faced the problem with restarting by itself many times..But, it is very good in other aspects, mainly with its audio feature. When hear the music using its earphones, it totally experiences a DTS music feel. That is ultimate in this phone..Thanks that someone suggested to download some software to overcome the restarting problem..Anyway, good mobile phone from Sony Ericsson...:)
