I purchased a Sony Ericsson K800i from Carphone Warehouse for my husband at Christmas for £269.99 sim-free. It's a superb phone, packed with features.
Having fallen in love with it, I have now bought one for myself just over two weeks ago at a reputable electronics website for just £150.00 with free delivery!
IT PAYS TO WAIT A WHILE FOR THE PRICES DO COME DOWN!
Also, I have had my handset Remotely Unlocked legitimately from Vodafone to sim-free so I can assure you that it IS indeed possible to have your K800i phone unlocked for a nominal fee of £14.99 and well worth it if you travel a lot and need two phone numbers.
Both my husband and myself were previous owners of the NOKIA N70 handset.
Again another fantastic phone but far too slow with regards of accessing simple tasks like text messaging. The software is just far too slow for todays pace but other than that it was a superb phone.
On the other hand, I can now highly reccommend the Sony Ericsson K800i for speed, efficiency, graphics, superb features and probably the best camera on the phone market today.
Large screen is a perfect addition that we all should have and reliability too!
Superb battery power also!
Only downside so far is that the software CD that comes with the K800i is not the May West!
I am still trying to overcome this problem to connect my K800i to my PC via USB cable.
There appears to be a fault with the software but I will return soon with an update on this topic.
Do buy the K800i - It's amazing!
