i bought this phone Z800 about 8 months ago, everything works fine for me, no signal dropping problems, 3G works fine, camera, media player... everything's fine. actually i bought this phone is because of its design, feature comes on the second place. soon after i get my hands on the phone, i realise that the features are great, too. but still, a few lil problems, like battery gets "heat up" when use it for too long, the picture quality is abit low, even if compare to Motorola's VGA camera... overall, its gud owning this phone, as nokia're too common here in malaysia
I am pretty sure that it is the Reception Kit that is malfunctioning in your Phone. The phone has a common Problem with the Internal Antenna. I had mine repaired while it was still under warranty.
my friend just bought this phone from ebay and he noticed a problem already. he has tmobile service here in the usa, and the phone has no network. i checked out to the network selection, but still says no network. does anyone have any ideas
I had the same reception problem. The Reception used to drop down as soon as I closed the Flip. Lucky my phone was still under warranty. I sent it for repairs. They replaced the reception kit or something. Now it is working fine. However there still is some drop in reception when the flip is closed.
The Phone seems to be working fine now.
I must say that phone has some good features like Manage calls (restrict certain incoming calls) but the phone is pretty delicate. I have dropped it a few times. I have nagged the circular thing near the camera (the thing that rotates while opening/closing flip)
I will probably be getting a Nokia next time.
to da guy who asked...
a flip fone that flips by itself when u press a button would b da Panasonic range...vs6/vs7 is kool...^^...
does anybody know what kind of flip phone that has a button for you to push and make the screen part of the phone flip by itself?
i have this phone z800i formerly it was v802se i just debranded it into sony ericsson i like the features but its lcd and it's camera is not bright as other nokia 1.3 megapixels camera phone. now i'm planning to sell it because i plan to buy a nokia phone. i think nokia is better than the SE phones. thnx
my phone is awoesome...i bought it for its design and talk time.But Z800 is not 'embrased' by Vodaphone Romania for the portal Vodaphone LIve.cya
I got Z800i mainly for the looks, but found that it had great functions. 2 major problems with the phone. Keypad and internal antenna.
Some keypads don't respond unless pushed in very firmly. This gets very annoying when complete phone numbers have to be typed in over and over. After 4 months of use, reception gets lost when flip is closed, probably resulting from defective internal antenna.
I am in the U.S. where 3G network is not available yet. I will be sending this to SE, and use my old T39m which I used for 4 years, and the keypads still work better than the Z800. I am considering getting the W810i. Only downside on the W800i is that it doesn't have the cover.
I found out that these Z800i problems are very common for this model. For those who had the antenna problem repaired, did the problem come back? What about for the keypad problems?
Sanjeeva i think its your bad luck,i have also bought this fone second hand in pakistan for about 170$ and still got about 3 months warranty and it is working fine & i m loving it great fone battery time is excellent .
Hi friends i bought this phone (Z800 VODAPHONE)A second hand phone used in japan. its a wonderfull phone we in sri lanka cannot think of buyingbecause they are very expensive here. now i had a signal problem where signal dropped when the phone is in closed mode n when u open it came back. i got it repaired from a small shop here since sony ericson in here declined to accept it for repaires since it was not purchased from them. now i have another problem. the phone gets stuck and the colour display goes wild. i really dunno y after i hv spent 280 us$ on this marvelous piece. pls help me if anyone in asia can help. i am from sri lnaka
it looks beautifull and the features are really good its very acttractive with silver coating body which suits the personality of a person......
This phone kinda sucks . If i talk more than 20min on video call the battery gets hot , discharges . You can't even zoom the pictures in gallery . The headset is bad because when i turn the player on mode bass the headphones create an anoying noise . By time the clamshell efect gets worse an worse .The camera really suck . The quality is bad even if it's 1.3mp . I'm disappointed by this phone . Gonna buy the new N73 ... hope it's going to be better than Z800
the 7610 its better beacose it has symbian,but the z800 has some feauters that are in front of 7610 like good sound quality,3G,light,and its looks diferent:)).I have one and i`am pleased but y prefer a phone with symbian menu beacose u cand doo enithyng u want with it.
the first time i saw this model, it really struck me. i like the features. how much would it be if you would convert it to peso.
very nice phone with all the functions, but i don't like the keypad of it, sucks so bad, but overall it's a great phone!
