I have this phone for the past 1.5 years.
this phone is really good looking and was working fine till now. many told me that flip phones are not reliable but that is true to some extent because now im facing problem with this mobile.The speaker is not working now.planning to change my mobile now.
monochrome display with display and keys
sound quality is good
external speakers can be attached to it
lacks flash(so night mode sucks)
flip creates problem as time goes
Overall experience: nice mobile
i have this phone for a year and a half,or so ,and what i can tell you is that this phone is best there is !!!good quality of music,good camera(for 2 MP),works great on the internet!
like jassie it was the best phone i had but i lost mine overseas. This phone is quite durable like a nokia phone. The camera is good considering..but it has no flash.
This is a really really good phone but its counterpart the w710i is sh**

G, 07 Oct 2008Hi, I have two questions for all Z710 users out there :) I recently got my firmware flashed... moreI figured out how to get back the animation :) you need to change a file called default_upgrade.xml and upload it using xs++ . Working again :D
Hi, I have two questions for all Z710 users out there :)
I recently got my firmware flashed to the latest version, and two things seem to have changed on the blue external screen, I was wondering if anyone knows how to get these back or if it's the same on your own Z710i.
The radio screen has changed- the RDS text has become small and the same size as the normal font. On the old firmware version the RDS text on the radio was much bigger and fit neatly on the blue display, I much preferred that.
Also, there was this cool animation that played on the blue display whenever I was in a call, which was these white squares that faded diagonally. I really liked this but on the new firmware version the screen just stays all blue. Is there any way to get this back as I loved this quirky feature.
I'd just like to say the Z710i is the best phone I've ever used and I wouldn't swap mine for anything else. Thank you everyone :)
Great radio. Nice phone. Sony plug in power and headset connection is not as nice as iPod. Menus not as nice as Nokia.
This phone is great. The mp3 sound qality is perfect. The camera should be a litle better but besid that everything is perfect.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2008hi y'all . i have this phone. best phone i ever had.no problems so far.good one. as talking ab... moreyes you CAN use mp3 ringtones.
Just flash the firmware to the original Sony Ericsson one.
It's just the OPERATOR FIRMWARE that stops you from doing that.
hi y'all . i have this phone. best phone i ever had.no problems so far.good one. as talking about ringtones and stuff i know that u can not apply mp3 songs as ringtone. try to download the songs in WMA format instead of MP3. i am sure u'll take hold of that. i did the same .thanx.
i've been u sing this phone about a year and wat im not satisfied is the camera..u cant capture it full screen and much worse is that u cant zoom it in 2mp..it only works in vga...and u cant zoom the picture afterwards..
but it doesnt bother much if u dun take serioulsy bout the cameras
the music key function is great and friendly user and i also dropped it several times but still works really fine
my friends says its really cool
This phone is superb, I ve used it since dec 2006, when it came out in canada, its great, it works inthe subway, great features, still advanced, great mp3 player, dropped it really hard and it working perfcectly, its gotten wet, beeen slammed hard, atleas once a month. and still works. There wwas this one time i was mad and i threw my phone aginst the wall hard an ther e was no damage
AV been using it for 3 years now no problem at all..gd fone i recommend it
I have been using My Z710i since December 2006. I bought it for Rs. 12500.00 and on the 14th month it became troublesome. It wont capture GSM signals of 900 Hz. Sony Ericsson says it can be rectified only by changing the circuit board which costs about 75% of the total cost. So it is now being used as a camara, music player, FM Radio, Alarm clock, etc... It was really good I loved it very much; Still I do but...
I bought this phone on December 2006. After 14 months I had network problem. My phone do not pick up any network signals. Sony Ericsson service people said it can be rectified only by replacing the Circuit board completely and it costs about the 75% of the cost. I bought it for Rs 11500.00
This phone is absolutley brilliant, I bought it second hand and had had it for more than a year with no problems at all, it has been dropped and abused but is still perfect great features so very happy, I know they are old but very good !!!
This phone was designed back in the days when SE still had a lot of imagination and understanding of what people like. It's an excellent phone, I've had the gold sand one for over a year with no problems at all. Good camera, lightning fast responses and fast startup (especially compared to most new SE phones these days), excellent connectivity, great quality sound/FM radio, excellent call quality...only 3G is missing really but EDGE is fine in most cases! I've even clumsily dropped mine a couple times, hasn't affected it at all and still looks great.
I have a 2GB memory stick with no problems at all.
