I just bought the phone it looks great! However, I am have trouble with formating the memory stick, can anyone help? The other question I have is the phone has a 1.3 pix, but the pictures do not look very good is there something I can do to make the pix look better?
this is one of the better phones on the market today. although its been out for a while it still remains ahead of most of its rivals. the only problem with this phone i would have to say is the reception. sony ericsson had quite alot of problems in australia with this phones reception, & in turn was forced to replace over 1000 handsets. other then that slight glitch , this is a very good phone
I repeat what I've said earlier.The MP3 is great but,the Memory Stick Duo Pro that comes with the phone has only 64 Mb for approx.10 tunes.You could buy an extra Memory stick of 128,256,512,1 Gb or even 2 Gb and you could have up to 4-500 tunes on your phone.The only disadvantage I see, is that you can find the Memory Stick into the shop window, but they keep an eye on them and they won't give it to you, unless you dig deep into your pocket for 50 up to 150 USD.
As an MP3 player,with your headset on and a manual or preset equaliser built in ,you could listen 3-4 hours of your selected music as with any MP3 Sony walkman
what about the sound quality of the mp3?
is it amazing?
does it have dual speakers?
How much can the memory can it go up to with memory cards?
Is this mp3 player great?
I need one to replace my broken i pod?
Could this possibly replace it?
By the way, how do you access the Playnow™ function? I don't see the icon in the menu.
Yeah I'm from Singapore...
I can't answer the battery question bcos I haven't gotten the phone yet! Hahax. I got all the info from various reliable websites. In the mobile phone display windows I only see Titanium Silver but I'm sure if I go into the store and ask there should be Linear Silver. I'm getting the phone on the 24th of November... Can't wait.
hello mates, thanks a lot for the help with my new phone. now i would like to know how to increase the video recording capability of my z800i can anyone please help me. again thanks for the help.
When you guys got the Z800, how many ringtones did your phone have? Manufacturer says it has about 60 or 70 ringtones. Mine only came with FIVE. ???
1.Every time the phone rang I had an automatic reject call.I went to Vodafone and Sony Ericsson service and it worked fine.Comning back home I had the same problem.I have a leather magnet lock holder.It took me hours to figure out that the magnet influenced the functionality of this phone.Mind you that!
2.In order to upload MP3 from you PC to your phone via USB cable:install the PC soft that came with the phone(CD),insert the cable both in your USB port on your PC and the phone,go to Start Menu/My Computer/double click on Removable Disk(E:)/double click on MSSEMC/2 clicks on Media Files/2 clicks on Audio/2 clicks on Ringtones.Leave this window open and open a new one from Start Menu/My Music.
Drag and drop from My Music to Ringtones any MP3 that you like.The standard Memory stick is 64 Mb(about 10 songs)but you can buy 128,256,512,1 Gb,2 Gb Memory Stick Duo(from 30 up to 150 USD) and use it as an Walkman for up to some 4-500 songs.
Remember that while you are connected the Memory stick your phone shows O Mb.Once you disconected it, it comes to normal and it will show the real free space on your Memory stick.Do not forget to synchronise your PC with the phone afterwards.The Synchronise function on your PC has a lot of options.Make sure you chose the right ones!
I am not an expert,it took me hours to discover it,but if you do not want to spend money on Bluetooth,it is worth trying !
Maybe there is a much easier way to do it.
i'd say....its worth!!!!
Mine is for Biz Use: It has a good feature set generally but there are some short falls and a disturbing trend for the battery to get very hot on certain calls. I returned it the first time but its happening again - quite disturbing at times it gets so hot.
In contacts: It doesn't have large enough capacity in the info fields. I don't expect it to be a full blown organizer but you'd expect better than 2 lines of info. It also lacks ability to enter multiple email addresses.
In Calender: It is so irritating not to be able to program 'repeat' calendar entries. Siemens S55 was much better with it's features in this area.
Battery Life: Advertised at 10 hours talk time - I'd be thrilled to get that. Maybe thats in whisper mode with a dim backlight and everything on the verge of shutdown. You'll need to recharge at least once a day if you're going to use Bluetooth. It might be easier to put up with if you could buy an additional battery - but you can't in Australia ! (amazingly - just can't buy one).
Navigation 'Dial'- Great features and v. convenient - like the way this is set up with short cuts esp. for B/tooth 'on/off'and sshort cut to Calender.
Construction: Excellent construction. V. robust & good solid feel to it. Speaker hands free works well in car if you've forgotten you earpiece.
Camera: Good - need an earbud handy to clean lens though. Night mode setting most welcome. Like the camera rotating feature. Not sure about video - haven't had too much use for it.
B/tooth & IR: Thanks for both. Well done.
Keypad; Nicely lit. Not bad keypads but would probably prefer they were slightly raised for faster texting.
LED Torch surrounding Camera: Absolute winner and most welcome.
Radio Feature v. Good.
Overall I really like my Z800i. If Sony Ericcson could do something about the negatives I'd be a long term loyal customer. BBut if they don't/can't - I'll be comparing again.
Thanx so much for the info. You're too kind :) How many days does your Titanium Silver Z800i battery last?
I already bought a Z800i, but I need to buy another one, hopefully in Linear Silver. The vendor where I got my phone is completely out of stock. I originally wanted to get the Linear Silver, since it looks more masculine than the Titanium Silver, but no vendors in the U.s. had it in stock.
As for the battery, even though the manufacturer states that the battery is a lithium ion, mine says lithium polymer, and it last about 2 1/2 days on a normal usage.
By the way, are you in Singapore? I know someone in Singapore, maybe I could ask her to buy one for me in Linear Silver. I am in Los Angeles, CA.
i like z800 for his desin and it will be my future mobile phone.
And I hope this helps:
JB, I'm sorry if I can't answer your question but it SHOULD be around 800 dollars. I'm extremely sorry if I'm wrong but 1 american dollar is equal to half a singapore dollar. It costs about 500 dollars here. Hope this is of some help to you. I will continue searching for info of the price of z800i in america for you. But in the meantime, I'm really sorry!
Question about this phone- I often plug my headphones in and use my phone as an mp3 player. I wanted to know if this phone is decent for that kind of thing. Yeah, Stupid question but im very serious about buying this phone and i want to know what im buying before i pay $300 for a phone.
To all Z800 users:
How long does your Z800 battery last? On a normal use in the U.S. (no video call feature available in the U.S.), I only get 2 days maximum, and I only got this phone last week so the battery is new. According to the manufacturer, standyby time should be about 10 days. What kind of batteries do you guys have? Lithium Ion? or Lithium Polymer?
oh ya, and it does work pretty well=)
mike, the z800 does work with the american t-mobile company (since my brother is using the vodafone version, and my friend is using this one-both with t-mobile...)
