Everytime I charge my phone I get an alien battery charging log. On top of that my battery life runs out fast from full to half to epmty. Does anyone else have this problem? Is my phone defective?
I think it's still one of the best cameras you can get on a flip phone currently. Heck, the Z710 is one of the best flip phones!
Anyone notice the cool fading squares animation that displays on the blue external screen when you're in a call? Nice touch. I wish there was a way you could get that to play at other times too, like a screensaver.
This is definitely a good quality phone and the camera is really, really good for a cell phone. People are always commenting on how good the pictures it takes are. I agree that it is not the best looking phone, though.. lol but it's nice if you're just looking for something simple that works good and takes nice pictures.
It's very good phone. I had this phone for a year and i'm realy happy.
this is one of the greatest phone i ever have. over all i give it 9/10. there are however some cons.
-not so good looking (it depend on how u judge)
-headset not comfortable
-need the headset for FM
-camera need to work in the light enough place
-cannot set mp3 as ringtone and alarm tone
no more. all others are pros.
-good music player (i put my ipod away now)
-speaker is good
-easy to use
-work with computer well
-keyboard is comfortable
-can have fun with the phone
.......so much good things
no, no, NO!! you don't need any software trash to put mp3 ringtones on this phone! you just need to remove the operator restrictions or flash the phone! how many more times!?
If you want to use MP3s as ringtones, you can go here:
And download the DRM packager. =)

I bought this phone after I decided that my next phone has to be a clamshell with fairly good music functionality with radio and camera. That was my main requirement and since SE is so famous of it's music capability so i decided to switch to SE after few years of being a nokia fan.
And of course i did all of the possible research and calculating on all of the SE clamshell =) the result? out of the 4 SE clamshell (z750, w710, z710, w300) that has camera, music function with radio, i think this is the best (at least for my needs). Sure it doesn't has 3g like z750 and it doesn't has walkman player like its brother or w300i but it has nice and durable metallic design unlike its brother and the external screen is bigger than z750 and both display is bigger than w300. When comparing this phone with w300 i thought i can't tolerate with the poor camera and small display of w300. And when i actually go out to survey these 4, i notice the shiny finish of z750 prone to have fingerprints all over it the very first time i touch it which surprisingly annoying (to me).
Anyway, I eventually end up with this phone, bought it like a week and i think it's pretty good, both function wise and looks but wonder why it isn't very popular, it's so strange that i have NEVER caught anyone using this phone on the street, in large supermarket or at my college. I guess maybe because the phone is very rare on the market, in fact they have to order it when i ask for the phone. I hope this is a plus though.
Even though it's not from walkman range i think the sound quality is equivalent or slightly better than my Creative Zen V Plus but 1 thing for sure is the radio is definitely better because it has rds and better reception. The camera is okay, it's good to have a 2MP camera around to take picture outdoors but not recommended in low light.
Overall it's really worth to be considered for those who love clamshell phone and want something from SE. Btw, this is my first clamshell phone and my first SE phone, for those who have it, I'm just wondering if there's any way that i can lock this phone to prevent someone else from using my phone or read my messages. Till then, maybe I will continue to review this phone some other time.
I like the player. The FM radio with the RDS has a very good reception. I bought 1GB M2 and I don't need iPod now. :)
The stereo headphones give high quality sound.
The 2MP camera is amazing!
I have added some themes and it looks much better now.
The only problem I have is that mine is locked to Fido and I can use mp3 as a ring tone. It REALLY sucks.
But overall I would give 9.9/10
Great phone, but my External Display is not blue, is Orange.
Anyone know why?
I have 1gb memory, vidios, movies, songs, etc...
My first cell. :)
Why is not blue????
I just want to ask how I can have access to my messages (SMS) that are saved in my SIM card? Or, is there any way I can transfer it to the phone memory (from SIM memory)? Your answers will be appreciated very much.
This is the best mobile phone I've ever had. I really love its design (I am a flip phone lover)!
Right now, I am planning to buy extra batteries because I want to keep it even until I'm already working. This is the best deal for a flip phone! Really the best - for me! ^_^
Great phone overall. Love the Camera and MP3. Highly recomended.
1) The maximum is 1000
2) Sadly SE PC Suite can't archive SMS, you will need to use 3rd party software to save SMS messages
3) There is a wired handsfree included, it's not as good as the W710i one but I think it's fine
4) You can't zoom into pictures (like on most other SE handsets)
This phone is great, I've had it a year and still love it :D
I like SE phones in general. I wanted to try flip ohone after my k750i. While it works fine, I found out that I do not like flip phones in general...Also, vibrating feature died on me...
