Phone Malfunctioning

So the "touch sensititive" shortcut keys are not working, more specificly the center one. It will randomly "press" itself making selections on my phone, like sending blank text messages or calling people. And when I try to press it on purpose it won't react. Very frustrating.....Any ideas? I have tried cleaning the area, turning off and back on my phone in hopes of resetting it, but still no luck.

so...

Now that this phone has been out for a while, what are some people's opinions.

I've been holding out for a while and the price has finally come down to where I'm ready to get it. However, I have a few concerns...

I am a HUGE texter and I'm wondering if this phone is really "text friendly". I'm kinda iffy on the whole touch screen "select" button AND the "you don't press the D-pad, you simply glide your finger across it" functionality. Has anyone run into any problems with the touch screen/pad?

This might be far fetched, but has anyone on here been able to compare (like physically compare) this phone to the c702? Don't live in a 3G area (but travel there multiple times/week) AND I like the GPS in the 702. SO, it's kind of a trade off...

*sigh*

Guess this phone was scrapped by at&t? I'm not sure what kind of marketing people they have...but they just lost a potential customer after a call like that.

I was ready to throw down and port my number to at&t from verizon. Guess I'll take my business elsewhere. Bah!

At&t will be picking up this phone

Spoke to several reps and they said they will be getting this phone in 1 to 2 months. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not dropping $600+ just to have it first. The rep said it would probably be $299.99 w/ 2year contract. Nothing was 100%, but all 3 ppl I talked to said that they would be getting it. Already have my cruiser cable from unlocking my w810i, so i hope it works with the k850i. $35 more and its just as good as the $600 one. Maybe even more GOODER! cause it was cheaper. Just hope they get them in velvet blue, cause the green is DOO DOO!

K850i vs Nokia N95

I'm completely torn with which to buy... use phones mostly for talking,txting, and camera. N95 has some other nice stuff but is it worth the price and is the Symbian OS as good as the SE operating system?

texting?

does this phone have 1 button access to send new text messages like my Nokia N73 does? I am looking to get a new phone and am leaning toward this one. Also does it play mp3s and wavs as ring/text tones?

mp3's / media?

I've had the w810 for over a year and recently ruined the phone by washing it. I'm having a hard time leaving SE and the k850 seems like a perfect upgrade from what I already considered to be a great phone. Since it's not a Walkman phone, how does the media player rate? Does it still organize by artist and album?

Contacts and Battery Life

Can anyone who owns this phone comment on how you search for contacts with it?

The reason I ask is that I have hundreds of contacts and about 70 people with names starting in "J", so can I do any of the following:

1. Does it search for first and last name automatically? For example, if I type "JAM" will it find both "Jamie Smith" and "Bob James"?

2. Can I just type each letter once? For example, to search for "JER" could I just type "5,3,7" or would I need to type "5,3,3,7,7,7"?

3. Can I change the main default # for a given contact without completely reprogramming the contact? Maybe just by choosing one of the numbers in the list and selecting that # as the main or default? (With the Razr2 V9 you have to enter it as the top #, s...

Picture Quality - Replace your digital camera?

I am really considering this phone, but it seems that there is a lot of back and forth about the picture quality. I was wondering if anyone that owns the phone can give a decent review. I found two professional reviews..one said N95 is better and the other said this one is better. I want to replace my 5 year old 3.2 cybershot with this phone. My cybershot takes good pictures, but I can only take 3 before the battery dies LOL! Will this phone replace a digital camera like mine?

People are either like its awesome or they say it didn't live up, but they don't say WHY it didn't live up. Anyone actually own this phone? Can you email me a pics taken with the phone? If you think it didn't live up, why do you think that?

Thanks Wink...

Dissapointed in Camera Performance

The phone as a whole is near perfect. Love the design; its solid, surprisingly small, ergonomic, soft keys easy to use,intuitive(as always) SE UI, beautiful screen, operates quickly, blah blah blah....Everything is great except the main selling point, the camera.
Not saying that it isn't impressive, but as long as we waited for this phone it should be better. It should blow away any other 5mp camera phone out there, but it doesn't. Overall because of features it slightly edges others. (xenon flash+l.e.d., photo options) The image quality IMO should have been like that of a stand-alone digital camera of similiar mp's. And the video should have been vga. 3x internal optical zoom would have been nice too. It's suppose to be imaging king w/o ...
