Have had this disater of a phone for 4 months now.
Given 1 star cos you can't do no stars .
I "upgraded" from an old k800i,its like going backwards in time .
This is the 3rd one having been replaced twice for the same faults you want a list?
Here goes , battery life, rubbish, a day if you're lucky , freezes constantly , turns itself off for no reason , if you try to send a message longer than 1 standard message length it tells you message sending failed retry? y/n you send again and get same message , your recipient will then get the first half of message umpteen times (usually a week later at 4 am . )if you're unlucky enough to receive 2 or more messages within a few seconds the phone has a nervous breakdown and crashes , reboots itself and your messages have gone , the network thinks you have recieved them and reports message received to sender . the rows this has caused !!! .
Memory reporting is woeful . you go to send a message and youre met with " no memory " check status and sure enough 0kb memory .turn off turn on again and lo and behold the memory fairy has woken up waved her magic wand and you have 3mb again . it does this 2-3 times a day ,
dont use the alarm function as your only alarm . it can reboot itself through the night and resets time/date to 21/12/2009 00.12.
if upgrading from a previous sony ericcson be warned the layout of keys is different , the back key and cancel keys are reversed you make a mistake and go back one digit and you wipe the entire message . space bar isnt the # key , its now the 0 key very frustrating .
after 3 phones ive given up and am looking to buy a 4 yr old 800i instead . was told by sony and vodaphone to upgraded software ,the only difference it made is that it takes 2 mins to boot up now instead of 5 ,
good points are the walkman feature . well it was till it wiped the memory card on one of its frequent reboots ! do not waste your cash i wish i'd looked at reviews online 1st , google spiro crash /freeze! same faults over and over . interestingly they all seem to work for a week or two fine, then the saga begins ! had ericcson phones since my 1st in 1997 this will be the last new one !
