good news for phonescoop members. we're giving away the W600 that we reviewed. it's still in great condition with no dents or scratches. plus it comes with goodies courtesy of sony ericsson.

what you get if you win:
1. unlocked W600 with neutral software. this means you'll have to set up your browsing, mms, and other goodness using sony ericsson's online configurator (which is easy)
2. headphone adapter cord with microphone, multi function button and 3.5 mm headphone jack
3. in-ear headphones for said adapter (nice ones, too)
4. charger
5. usb sync cable (for loading music)
6. a sony ericsson "get your walk on" t-shirt
7. a walkman themed game of twister, including a full size twister mat.

how to win:
simply post in this ...

Wonderful review, however I am a little confused, sorry noob here. You mentioned at the end of your review that "if you need 850 MHz then hold out for the W810i" but I thought that looking at the specs for the w600 it is quad band doesn't that include 850 mhz. Anyways thank you for the in depth review, I just wish I had the money to afford one right now, seems like a nice phone. Again thanks for the in depth review.

Jan 20, 2006, 2:40 AM
OMG This is like a dream come true. Here is my story. I looked at the Nokia 6102 and bought it without doing any research. (That is before I was introduced by my friend to And like a month and a half later the w600i came out. I called cingular and beggeed them to let me exchange but they said that returns are accepted after 30 days or something only. So here I am with my 6102 that can only take like 50 vga pictures comapered to this phones 300 1.3 mp pictures. I have to wait until June 2007 if I want to upgrade.(unless I pay the $450 for the phone w/out a contract.

Well, I told you my story and I hope you consider me =]. I swear to god if I am picked I will go around my school advertising your website and if anyone asks ...

Jan 20, 2006, 2:42 AM
I don;t understand why everyone wants a RAZR. I heard the features and camera are horrible. I guess it's a fad just like the ipod. Laughing

Jan 20, 2006, 2:51 AM
Hey Peter, if you win can I buy your old nokia for cheap, I am still sporting a moto t721, talk about your crappy phone, hehe Twisted Evil Which goes to show you, be careful of those 2 year contracts as both you and I have learned.

Jan 20, 2006, 3:06 AM
if i do somehoe luckily win which i never do lol I
will mail my phone to you free of charge. just pay the $5 shipping and handling. I can promise you that.

Jan 20, 2006, 9:28 PM
Sweet, here's hoping either you or I win. Very Happy

Jan 24, 2006, 4:18 PM
I hope I win!! Very Happy

Jan 23, 2006, 12:33 PM
Greetings all,
I thought the review of this phone was good. And a chance to win it for free....AWESOME i would love to win this phone just to have it in my collection of "cool" phones that i have

Jan 20, 2006, 3:51 AM
I'll agree with the review on the battery life, very good so far.

The camera is a good 1.3M for a camera phone, though the Nokia 6682 pictures come out a bit sharper.

And for the music portion... forget the ROKR and get the W600.

Jan 20, 2006, 7:57 AM
This is one of the very few phones out right now that I would consider purchasing as a replacement for my T637. I see some conflicting information about what you say about signal from what I have read on other forums sites saying the signal was as good as the RAZR (which is supposed to have excellent signal).

Oh yea, and I hope I win Smile

Jan 25, 2006, 11:00 AM
Damn it.. my ATT T637 is starting to crap out on me. Aside for the joystick which has been having problems lately, now it's randomly rebooting itself and/or locking up to where I need to remove the battery. I really don't want to upgrade to a Cingular sim. Winning this would fit perfect for me!

Damn this thread got big Shocked

Jan 20, 2006, 11:31 AM
I hope I win... and that you can ship to Argentina!!

Jan 20, 2006, 11:33 AM
i have enormous brand loyalty to Sony, and now I have become a big fan of phonescoop as well! What could be better than winning a fabulous sony phone from you lovely people?



Jan 20, 2006, 11:50 AM
Throw my name in the hat! Smile

Jan 20, 2006, 12:12 PM
i hope i win Smile

Jan 20, 2006, 12:13 PM
I'm a HUGE SE Fan!
I'm a previous owner of the T237
and now own the T68i.

I've been looking to upgrade my phone
and Phone-Scoop has been a great resource
to help narrow down the selection.

I have to add that the site/user reviews have
been great - I've never consulted a review
site before and now I won't buy anything
(well almost anything) with checking first!

I'm presently trying to decide on which
is the better phone between the Z520a
and the W600.

What better way to make a decision than to win a W600!

Thanks Phone Scoop!

Jan 20, 2006, 12:32 PM
I heard that a lot of people are having problems with this phone. If they move their hand a little bit and the phone starts to slide close the call hangs up. Any comments?

Oh and "i hope i win."

Jan 20, 2006, 12:38 PM
i hope i win

Jan 20, 2006, 12:46 PM

I've been reseaching this phone for a few months waiting to have the extra cash. Winning it would be awesome!

Jan 20, 2006, 1:49 PM

Jan 20, 2006, 2:15 PM
I hope i win i hope i win i hope i win i hope i win!

Jan 20, 2006, 2:42 PM
I've been thinking about getting the W600. Is the rf really that bad? I've used a t610 (still in use with my second line) and a K700 (bought directly from SE). I like the SE interface which is why I stay with them.

And, YES, I do hope I win!

Jan 22, 2006, 10:59 AM
the rf isn't really really bad but it does just drop signal for no appearant reason at all. even if you in a five of five bar area you'll drop to 1 or none the pop back up.

its a nice phone but not better than the s710a imo.

Jan 20, 2006, 2:57 PM
I saw all of the messages about how it was "your chance" to win a W600, and I knew that you were speaking directly to me. So the giveaway is really "my chance" to win a W600. I promise to put it to good use and especially to make heavy use of the 900/1800 frequencies used outside the US. I'm off to Asia in early February, and I know that the phone wants to see Angkor Wat with me. Northern Italy and Catalonia are in the plans for June, and Lugano for late July. I've used Sony Ericsson phones with T-Mobile for several years (t68i, t610), but it's about time to replace them with a newer phone with better signal reception and camera. So the W600 will not only go to a nice home, but it will get to live with its relatives and see the world in ...

Rolling Eyes No, I really hope I win.

Jan 22, 2006, 10:27 AM
I sincerely do hope I win, but I have an actual question about the phone which I will post under the main heading of the review forum. How much voice recording can you do with the W600? Will it replace a pocket recorder and take up to an hour of audio notes like the Nokia 6230i? Can you configure a button so that recordings can be made with a single step or a press of that button?

Thanks for the great review,

Jan 22, 2006, 10:40 AM

Jan 22, 2006, 5:04 PM
sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee t.
I guess if I win I won't have to replace my phone with Monster energy drink coursing through its wiring. Apparently when you pour half a can of Monster onto your Moto V551 not only will it not have sound and no one will be able to hear you, but you will have the added function of an fm radio! but that doesn't work either, no volume.

Jan 22, 2006, 5:40 PM

Jan 23, 2006, 3:18 PM
I curious about the reception problems. I've read a couple of reviews on the SE W600i and both mentioned reception problems. Both reviewers were also using the phone on T-Mobile wireless service. So I am wondering if the reception problem has more to do with the 1900mhz frequency T-Mobile uses rather than the phone.

I previously owned the SE S710a on the Cingular Network. The phone was great but the menu system was slow and the reception was descent, not great. But since moving to the W600i, reception has been absolutely perfect. The same goes for the SE Z520a.

I do agree that the picture quality has decreased compared to the S710a. The S710a had a superior camera to the Nokia 6682 as well.

Hopefully you can re-evaluate the...

if you haven't posted in this discussion, do it now or you'll miss your chance.

Jan 27, 2006, 7:37 AM
love this phone I've had it for about 6 months now

This phone does everything that you'll ever need a phone to do plus a little bit more. It has a Cybershot digital cameras which s really excellent one and more over a slide cover which save the camera lens when not in use also with an 1+ megapixel

I use mine to listen to music which supports MP3, AAC, play games and watch FULL movies. The camera on this thing is one of the best out there on any phone.It has a in built Walkman software which gives a excellent sound quality

If you are planning on buying this one its really a good option that i can suggest

i hope i win...This phone looks great !!!
