The phones is good except for the IR. I tried to transfer other pictures and sounds from other phones but it just wont work. The top is like a hole where you can put string in it so you can wear the phone as a necklace.
the screen is very clear which is what i like about the phone, plus it has some very interesting ringtones as well....it's kinda slow but overall it's a good phone
a little bit bulky, for its limited features. slow and hangs sometimes. and whats on top is it a bottle opener???
This phone looked the biz... but, what a packet of junk. Battery life is too damn short, phone seizures a regularity and all that you can do is take the battery out to restart. For some unknown reason my Predictive does nt work anymore... so its back to multi tap... whey hey.. I spoke to Sony Ericsson and they were about as useful as a chocolate teapot. My advice, go find two tin cans and a piece of string,
This mobile is a really damn hell. Its been too hard for it ti retain the charge. I donno what to do. im just using it for i love it.
I had this phone for almost 2 years (upgraded to the z520) and have had no complaints. I wanted a basic phone that looked good, and this was it. I wish there were more like it because I really don't need a camera and bluetooth and whatever. My front LCD light died after a year though.
Sen: This phone DOES have a dictionary, and the microphone IS in the lower half - see that little hole? I didn't have much trouble with the battery life, i'd recharge every 3 days for so, but I didn't make lots of long calls.
i have this phone for almost a year now. it was my dream phone, now its malfunctioning as the battery won't keep charge. right now its at the repair shop. now i don't know what to do cause i need a phone!!!!!!!!
it sucks...i mean, it was my dream phone and all. but when i got it, it can only hold so much in it's puny memory...and after 6 months...it's LCD front and back started to malfunction...i can't repair it anymore...to repair it would cost maybe 100 quid...okay too much...but its so damn expensive to repair!
I have been having this phone for little more than a Year.
Adv: Looks really cool , very comfortable to keep it.
DisAdv: Man you buy the phone to talk , this where it lets you down so much. The battery goes down so fast you got to charge it everyday. The buttons are designed for people with puny finger. This phone doesn't have dictionary for messaging. Even though this a flip phone the microphone (mouth piece) is in the upper half , reason only sony can explain. If you have set a ringtone and vibration mode and you forget it at home. If some one calls you the battery gets discharged and phone will shutdown. Using it for a year now I have call drops very often I am not sure why. In the phone one cannot see the name and number at the same number. It keeps swaping you got to wait when you want to tell the numer to someone. Sony has to work on the battery.
OverAll verdict : Only looks below average on performance.
Please let me know if any of my comments is wrong.
Great phone, have it for 1 year and a half, works well, ringtones and display real good! Compare it to nokia with 4096 colours, and their crappy ringtones, and then post your opinion. The thing is it's a good phone, for it's time(model 2003), but really sucks in battery standby time.
I think dis fone is a heap of crap the ringtones are nothing and da battery life is exteremely POOR PLEASE DO NOT BY THIS PHONE trust me you'll find something better.
I really like this PHONE!!! My sister got it for her Christmas Gift and after she let me see it i was IN LOVE with it!!! It has a nice screen and the buttons are easy to press i like the clamshell design. Oh... and the ring tone called "Simplexity" is the best!!!
Hey.....yer i got the phone in the blue and orange and after i saw it in red and silver!!! but they shops dont seem to sell it!!! but its a gr8 phone though! it needs a camera
i have a z200 and i think its a great phone. But one of my friends said it can identify caller identity when on private numbers. Is this true?
