Yes, after updating the phone, by connecting the handsfree or charger, that bug appears. But, it has a very easy solution. Simply click the walkman key, every thing goes back to normal. And if, your phone's screen goes black, (backlight on, showing no data), you should go to: Menu-> Settings-> Connectivity tab-> Mobile networks-> Search mode-> And then select Manual. I hope it helps.
wahh...i want to sell the unit already...ive been using it for 2mos now...it keeps on restarting even if you're on a call...
it's better to buy SE's K series
ya..mine oso decharges when i overcharge..it was 99% when i looked at it.. so i waited til it got to 100%.. but 1hr later it was 97%.. so its pretty normal.. but batt life is gd.. 3days after gaming n music..better than ex-phone(nokia)
I've had this phone for about 4 months now. Basically the phone is great. But i've been having problems with the phone. First, it's the battery. The battery life was quite dissapointing, but i managed to fix it after upgrading the firmware. It's been satisfactory then until after i set up my phone for internet (where i was required to switch it off for about 5 mins). The battery life is a bit off again. I turn off the phone and removed the battery after which about another 4% was lost. I also noticed that if i overcharge my phone, it will kind of decharge even though the status is 'charging'.
Another problem is that the screen blackout on its own. The phone was left on standby but when i wanted to use it, the screen just wont light up. Only the buttons' light were on so i know for a fact that the phone is not switched off or out of battery. I had to turn if off by pressing the power button and restart it again. Anyone ever had this problem?
Also, the button/keypad lights will blink when the headset is connected. And while that happens, if i slide the phone up or down, the screen will turn off immediately and no matter what i do, i cant get it to turn on even though the phone is still working. Again, to fix the problem, i had to turn it off.
This is kind of weird isn't it? My firmware is R1FA035.
Does anyone experience the same problem??

(Sorry about the double posting. I don't know if it's allowed here, so if it's not, please tell me so.)
I think the successor should keep these things aspects of the W910: Light and slim design, clean-cut/defined look, and the 2.4 inch screen. Honestly, just add a 3.2+ Mpx camera (preferrably with autofocus and/or flash) to this phone and it'll be the best phone ever...
Aw, I really wish SE would make a phone that looks exactly like this with better specs. I would love nothing more than to buy this phone, it's designs are just mesmerizing. But the specs are just out of date (mostly the camera and the video recording). I really hope SE'll make a successor of W910 soon!
i have to admit that this phone's design is freaking nice!!! i hav it in havana bronze!!! (check out my youtube account btw: MadAboutPhones for a video)
but despite updating de software like around one mth ago, it'll like restart itself around 4-5 times per day... :(
and another bad thing is that it's earpiece vol is soft, a little hard to make out what de person is saying---but solve it by using de headset...
despite all these flaws, i dun still luv it n hope that SE will hav a new software to solve de probs i hav mentioned above...!!!
I rate it 8/10!!!

I think the update made it worse. The battery is now sitting at 62% after only 12 hours of standby.
edit: 69% after taking out the battery and putting it back in. Weird.
