Go to location services and open status info ...there u ll see a round circle open that untill u ll see some small satellites near it and after sumtime u ll see status connected bt this can take around 15 minuts and ya u hav to go on ur roof to test it. Frm ur room it wont conect .after that dont close that application just minimize it and open wayfinder navigator after a minute ur wayfindes nav will say GPS connected..n then navigate..

You wont need ipod and all and besides that it has got 7.2MBPS 3.5G speed, GPS, WiFi DLNA, RDS Radio and 8.1mpx cam with 30FPS Video recording.
Tim, 19 Mar 2010Hi guys, I am a new user of SE and this is my first SE phone, W995 so please do forgive me ... moredear tim, do one thing, go to roof or open place at night. Now go straight to Status Info and until you get the GPS Sats. on Radar. After that minimise it and start Google maps or Wayfinder. Let me if it works also do update your firmware if you didnt.
Tim, 19 Mar 2010Hi guys, I am a new user of SE and this is my first SE phone, W995 so please do forgive me ... moreTim update your firmware and the wayfinder navigation software should be there its a free inbuilt software but it will need to use your internet for gps which will cost unless you have free internet on your phone
i think the mathie person is living in other world, see i am not a techi person i am a doctor i am using this thone since 8 months it is really a good phone. it has every thing. saying from my heart.
These comments were only for W995 and why the hell are you talking about other phones and fans of se, nokia or whatever i dont need to know all these crap i just need to know about W995 got it?? if you want to talk about N73 then post it at N73 comments, not in W995!
I am a new user of SE and this is my first SE phone, W995 so please do forgive me if my questions sound stupid to you all. I am a very proud owner of this phone but the only thing that i am ignorant with is the GPS. I can find preinstalled software called "Navigation" available but whenever i tried to search for location, all i get is "GPS not ready".
For your information, i can connect to GPRS without any problem.
And if possible, is there any GPS freeware available for this model?
this is a great great phone......i run a mobile buiness and i sold this phone the most.......brilliant phone........but nokia's are the best..best seller with less complaints....
ah, here, children, take a deep breath and QUIT FIGHTING! this is a phone review, not a hard on bitch fest...now im officially confused as to which phone to buy...cheers for that guys :P
Mathie, 18 Mar 2010I didnt buy this phone.. This is a gift to me.. I just reviewed what i experienced. I am an op... morei am sorry for the person who gifted you this phone from his hard earned money coz he never knew that you will make fun of his feeliings. Just like you dont need my advice the same nobody needs your advice too. Better you give this back to the person who has gifted you coz at least someone else would understand its value. Yes i am SONY addict.
Mathie, 18 Mar 2010I didnt buy this phone.. This is a gift to me.. I just reviewed what i experienced. I am an op... moreYou seem to be less and less believable with every opinion you post! I should quit now while you're ahead.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2010ok if you are so clever and intelligent then why on earth you bought this phone. Who told you ... moreI didnt buy this phone.. This is a gift to me.. I just reviewed what i experienced. I am an open minded person. You are a SE addict. I dont care what you think.. I have experienced a lot of phones. And i know what is the best. You dont even know one thing about phones. You are just being positive. hehe FYI - I dont need your recommendations to buy a phone
Mathie, 17 Mar 2010Ohh I am not a nokia fanboy or something.. I am now using the W995..so gotta ask ya, are you o... moreok if you are so clever and intelligent then why on earth you bought this phone. Who told you to buy this when everyone knows its a feature phone. You are fake. My friend has n73 and i had K810i.comparing to K810i cyber shot the n73 is totally crap.
I dont need your pics as they are taken knowingly to bash this product.
I disagree that menu and fonts are childish as they are need and arranged properly plus they have visual appeal. Why do you want that whatever you like should be liked by everyone and if they dont then they are childish.
Better you follow this link where people have posted fabulous and Beautiful pics taken from this extraordinary mobile :-
be clear what you want and when you get it then always feel proud for your choice.
FOR ME W995i is the BEST and i am satisfied with it. If you like Symbian then go for Satio. BTW Android is better so Vivaz is a good choice.
stico, 17 Mar 2010hey guys, i like the opinions so i think i will buy W995, i just have question: what do the K,... moreactually c and k are almost the same, although the initials are different.....the c and k series phones specialize in cameras but the x series stand for xperia which is like a portable pc
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2010Thanks mathie to let us know that you are nokia fanboy. So you are writing crap. We have GSMAr... moreOhh I am not a nokia fanboy or something.. I am now using the W995..so gotta ask ya, are you okay...? and i love the phone W960 btw that is symbion.
Anyway yeah it is a good phone for people like you. A childish phone with too large font and not intelligent.
Pictures are too dark and noisy.. dust is everywhere.. if you droop out your email here, i ll end you a bunch of photos taken by me from various phones that i have already mentioned.
Opera mini is not the greatest as you know there is opera mobile for Symbion..
As usual almost all the applications are light versions for this phone ex - skype light, nimbuzz light without voice support.
and the flash player support..
I ll tell you something.. take E72 as an example.. It is a brilliant phone with all facilities. that is the level I am mentioning about.
nton, 15 Mar 2010i dont have W995....could u give me this handphone? bacause i dont have money...thank'sWish we could Help you to buy this fabulous phone.
ryan sanders, 16 Mar 2010how about its gps?it is an internal gps or just an application,because when i launched the loc... moreinternet connection is used for a gps for faster lock. You can disable agps but then it will take time . Agps is now used in every phone.
Mathie, 17 Mar 2010Not a Good phone
I have used K750, N73, W810,K800,N82, W960, KU990 and W995...
Disadvant... moreThanks mathie to let us know that you are nokia fanboy. So you are writing crap. We have GSMArena review so we dont believe a single word of you.
This phone supports VOIP so it has dedicated SIP Settings menu.
I can understand how well you know about your N73. You are comparing 3.2MP With 8.1MP Snapper. Are you ok ?
Go to Getjar or Lasyk.com and check how dedicated application support is.
XPICT STORY is a great application.
Its GPS WORKS GREAT and Accurate.
Why need other browser when you can install Opera Mini and Bolt.
Flash light is too strong to work as torch or SOS Light.
I discard your writing as you are a Jealous Nokia fanboy.
By the way Sony Ericsson makes Symbian, Windows and Android phones.
Its User Interface is neat and clean and best. Not like cluttered and confusing one of Nokia. Thats why nokia is working for the new interface.
Not a Good phone
I have used K750, N73, W810,K800,N82, W960, KU990 and W995...
1) Camera not good enough even n73(3.2MP) takes sharp pictures than this.
2) Music not loud enough though the quality is good. (N82 is not that good for music)
3) Lack of application support
4) No VOIP
5) Skype, Fring, Nimbuzz voice calls are not supported
6) Flash light(software) on the browser is unable to play flash continents.
7) No Document viewer (No .doc, .ppt, support).
8) Flash light is not lighter enough.
9) Gravity of the phone is near the camera so hard to hold the phone for a long time.
10) Lack of video codec support.
11) Childish menus.
12) Software of the phone is not intelligent.
13) Cannot search contacts by the surname
14) Large font size(Childish)
15) Wifi automatic IP generator is not smart.
16) Volume controllers a.k.a Zooming buttons are built in the bottom so hard to control
17) Accelerometer is not that sensitive (fools around).
18) Answering and call cancelling buttons are not built in proper places(long distance between two).
19) Signal Strength is not that powerful.
20) GPS doesnt perform well as NOKIA maps.
I do not recommend anyone to buy this phone. Go for Symbion straight. actually W960 is better than this W995. If you are a person who wants and operates more facilities, then go for a Symbion OS.
Thanks. I hope this will help a lot.
