The features of this phone are AMAZING!!
LOVE the way this phone works.
It has ONE MAJOR FAULT THOUGH!!!!
It has a lot of technical faults!
2weeks after buying mine, the slider jammed. A few days later I found out why - a screw (from god knows where) had come out and stopped the slider. The screw came out itself and ive got it upstairs for incase i can work out where it came from. (i know 3peoople with this phone, all 3 also had the exact same problem!!
Aanother problem was the slider itself, it is wobbling and no longer slides so easily (note this problem began 1month after buying the phone).
Another problem (month no.3 right now), the most annoying, the charging port messed up so the phone would NOT charge at all.
I managed to get by by connecting it to the computer and charging it, but this too failed when the computer began to fail to recognise the phone!
After this, my headphones wouldnt work!
(note all 3 (the charger, the computer, the headphones) connect through the same port).
I had to get by by charging the battery through a different phone.
I have now sent back the phone to be repaired.
Considering I have to keep this phone for 24months, I dont think having problems in the first 2weeks and having to send it in for repair after just 90days is a very good start.
These faults have let down this phone otherwise it sure would have been one of the greatest phones around!
Anyone there having wobbling problem? I bought brand new black W995 20 days ago...the slider started wobbling. It is increasing day by day.The left of the slider in the lower part has raised a bit..now it is moving like a sea-saw...
Anyone there with the same problem...should i go to the service centre?
Had this phone for approx 6 months now, had to have it changed 5 days after i got it, due to software faults, lost signal. 2 months after recieving the new one, same thing again, sent for repair, same problems including unable to charge detected. Fixed and returned 4 weeks later and within 1 month, the same thing happened again!!! Sent for repair again, and now await the outcome!! Anyone experienced similar faults, most annoying.

-to transfer files you have to choose after connect transfer mode not phone mode

If yet want zoom that does not use an optical zoom. No phone has a decent digital zoom because digital zoom never is good.

I have to admit that the w995 is amazing when it comes to pictures because of its functions! you can take up to 5000 pictures with its huge memory,i currently have 2000! Hope it helped
Hi, question to all of those that have the W995, I really want to know if the camera really takes bad pictures? I currently own the W980 and I'm sorry to say, but the pictures are not good at all (no details since no macro mode). Thanks.

You're right, I am a music mania so I always prefer music phones than non-music phones and I prefer Sony Ericsson walkman phones than the others. Thank you Ashish, now I'm sure that W995 will make a best choice for me.
