phone doesnt start up properly

Confused The phone wont start up. When it gets to the "Sony Ericsson" splash screen during startup, it just freezes. There is no other way to get past this so I just remove the battery to turn it off. I have tried the Sony Ericsson update service but it doesn't work, the problem remains. Is there anyway to fix this problem?

Memory leak?

My "phone status" for the Sony w600i says I have 164Mb free. When I connect, my Windows XP machine says it only has 100Mb free.

Is there a way to clear it? Why the discrepancy?

This phone is the shiznit!

I hate almost every phone after 2 weeks but the SE w600i is a great phone with a genius interface and extraordinary features. Runs great with Opera Mini and the Walkman is excellent for the guy who doesn't want his whole music collection on a little remote that can be lost in 10 seconds. I've had it for months and I'm still finding new stuff every day. Had a Moto v600 before this and I thought it was an excellent phone too, so you may not have the same tastes that I do in phones...

W600i Not working

My sister just bought the w600i.

Here are some issues:

1. delay when "answering calls"

2. does not play MP3, "CANNOT PLAY THIS SOUND" comes out, even with default mp3s.

3. when making out going calls, sometimes there is no sound, but the call is being made.

we have already updated, and have done many master resets. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Has this phone been discontinued?

Called Cingular Warranty Repair July 20th to order a replacement. (All missed calls continue to vibrate! Once you turn the phone off it will still vibrate for about 20 secs Surprised )

Warranty gave me the option of replacing my w600i with a Razr, SlVR or Nokia 6682. I want MY phone!! I don't want any of these phones.(Don't think they're comparable phones)

I was then told (several calls and 2 hours later) that Cingular has discontinued this phone and can not replace it. It is no longer is stock.

Has anyone else heard this?
Any suggestions on getting my phone would be greatly appreciated?

The lock key

Just got the phone on Friday. So many things to figure out on the phone Shocked . Anyhow, can anyone tell me about the lock key on the side of the phone. I feel it doesn't stay put. Should it be on a spring, which I think it is or should it be a like a true key that once you move it, it stays put. For example, I hit the lock keys put in my purse and when I got home, noticed that my phone decieded to call the house Surprised Any advice?

is there something wrong with my speakers?

i have had this phone for 3 days now and i have put mp3's on it. i have wanted to listen to the speakers because i have heard sooooo many good things about them. when i turned on a song to listen to the speakers, they were damn loud! but they sounded like they were going to blow out or something. im wondering if this is normal for this phone. my question is; Does everyone else's speakers sound like they're going to blow?

please read, and answer if you can help!!

Hi, I was wondering is there a code you can dial into your phone to see what your IMEI number is?

My phone was tolen and i think I know who jas it, but my friend who say the phone said that the person who has it painted over the IMEI number on the back of the phone, I need the IMEI number to see if it matches the IMEI number on the box. I called cingualr a few months ago with another phone, and i couldnt find the IMEI number, so the rep. had me put in some code and it brought the IMEI number up. if anyone knows the code, please let me know ! thanks, vinny.
