I'm loving it!!

I bought this phone unlocked two weeks go and have been using it since with no problem (Cingular). The battery doesn't last as long as I thought it would, but that could be because I'm always tinkering with the phone, taking pictures, messaging, etc. The walkman is awesome! And I like the key size - easier to text. The phone feels good in my hand, not too big, not too small. The big and bright screen is nice to look at. Especially when you download cool themes. The text messages also come out better, since the font is medium and thin and fit several lines on the screen.

Bottom line: It's an awesome phone!!

Update Service for PC


I used the PC based update service today for my W810i and it crashed the phone. Talked to SE and had to send it to them for repair, they do not know why this happened. Have had the phone for 2 weeks and it drops every call on Cingular. Love evrything about it other than that. Did request that SE update to latest SW version and Cingular settings, will post again after getting it back.

(I've been a Cingular Agent and service center for 16 years)

Another question...Firmware update process?

I really want to get this phone, but the talk of problems with Cingular have me worried. I remember reading somewhere, can't remember where, that this phone was able to do FW upgrades over the air; is this true? I'm just trying to figure out how much more money, and time, I'd have to invest to upgrade FW; cable, software, etc.

On a side note, I assume the proprietary connector is unchanged? I have the SE desk charger for my S710a that I'd like to use with the W810i.

Keypad backlight

I know this is going to sound lame, but does the keypad glow orange like the older version?

True iPod destroyer

This is definitely an iPod destroyer. It's because of phones that have features like this beast that Apple has gonna have to come out with a phone of their own soon!

Yeah Getting closer

Been waiting patiently for this phone to show up. I have the W800 but reception isn't that great. So happy this one has the 850 in it. My question would be is the price? Anybody have any idea how much it will cost? Thank you

I love this phone!

This phone is nearly perfect! I can only think of 2 things that would make it better. A fold out keyboard and wifi like the Nokia E70. But still this thing looks awesome, which is why I would pick it over the nokia, plus it has an FM radio. Razz
