I have been using this phone for more than a year now. I got it way back in 2007 and got it imported from someone. Many told me I could have problems getting it repaired if the need be or if some part needs replacement. But I never had to do so. I tried a million S/Ws on this phone and they mostly worked fine. Played many games/installed touch flow S/W to view my albums, DIVX player and many more other apllications. The response time very brilliant, obviously if you load if completely, it will slow down a bit. The walkman is awesome, I have, till now, never seen such a s/w in any phone. Its so easy yet so stylish to use. Its been more than a year, but when I take it out of my pocket, evryone around asks me about the set. I never fail to flaunt !!
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2008i've just got one of these phones and it's first class although different to anything i've had... moreI had this phone but sadly someone stole it. It was the best phone ive ever had, people who said that this phone has something wrong with it maybe they got a messed up one from the manufacturer i suggest they send it back for a new one with the warranty. The capabilities of this phone are endless. For themes the .utz file u have to transfer the file into ure pone memory and access it through the control panel and install it through ure phone not ure computer. Its amazing the compatibilities of this phone, ive put all types of games that were made for other phones and did not have a problem playing them and applications on this phone and never really had a problem with it it just got a bit slow but so does every computer and phone when u start to use up the memory. The battery life is amazing, when i first got it i played my music for 5 hours straight and it was still green, just dont let it die out to 0% battery though, its a lithium ion battery and just like any other phone if u let the battery die out ull see a reduction in battery life even if its fully charged If any of u guys have a problem with this phone just ask here and ill try my best to solve it. I messed around with this phone so much but it was still working fine. I'm gonna purchase this phone again next year.
How's the battery life on the W960? I may be getting one soon and im worried that the 900mah batt cant handle high power useage, if it can handle 8hours of internet il be happy.
If you can, keep away from this phone will be my advice to anyone!! I have had this phone since January 2008 - at 1st it was ok, was loving it, had everyhitng i wanted and more. 8 months down the line, i got nothing but issues with the handset, the screeen has gone faulty twice, the phone heats up like mad when your making a phone call, it switches on and off, its like the phone has a mind of its own ands going out of it way to p*ss you off!! when you recieve a text or phone call it wont ring, vibrate or flash!! A very bad expriance all around! I am really gutted as i waited for months for this phone to be released aswell!!
can i put the phone lock code on my w960 ? like nokia phones we can lock the phone by using code .
ckymuk, 23 Sep 2008what is the default lock code of this phone?0000
I have a very bad eperience using this phone about the connector port even plug in headset or recharge my battery.
From now on, I feel fear about using SE phone with that kind of connector.

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2008i've just got one of these phones and it's first class although different to anything i've had... moreOnly .utz themes will work.
Get loads of themes at zedge.net and mobile9.com or google search for p1 themes or UIQ themes.
anti_nokia, 21 Sep 2008if i were you guys, just get a P1i instead of w960. P1i can do what w960 does. It has a better... morehi! so u think its not really that practical if i change my p1i to w960? how about to g900? im planning to sell my p1i by the end of this year, do you think it would be much better if i get a brand new p1i instead of getting w960 or g900?

can i use other walkman headphones to w960?i have w200 headphones and i want to buy w960..
i've just got one of these phones and it's first class although different to anything i've had before.
what i am struggling with is themes for it. i've downloaded a few but they are utz files and not the usual symbian files that get used in a nokia. whats the score with the utz files then can i use them on this phone or not or will i have to look elsewhere.
I have had this phone since Feburary and have been so impressed with it. It's a great phone and would recommend it to anyone. My next phone will be the iPhone though.
For music lover like me, it is the best walkman phone I've ever had.. I can also download applications using my wifi, Just visit this site: http://www.getjar.com Touchscreen is great! Right now, I don't have any problems with my phone.. And also try the portable speaker from Sony Ericsson..It's awesome! You won't regret it! I recommend this phone to all gadget lovers especially to all music lovers.
