Sony Ericsson W810
Just got it...my random thougths.
2. Nice size, not that much bigger than the T637, slightly thicker.
3. Bought off ebay and the phone has European Firmware (R4CE012), no English manual, though it's on the website. What I expected.
4. OTA update is nice, can set it to check for new software once a month, on start up or never. SEUS for PC as well.
5. Installed PC Suite on my XP machine, connected phone and transferred music effortlessly. The PC Suite SW is nice and a major upgrade to the S710 sync SW.
6. Easily set the phone up for Cingular MMS, SMS and internet using the Phone Setup feature on SE's website.
7. Had a hell of a time connecting via Bluetooth unti...
Gee I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MMS and Misc. Issues w/ Cingular
Also, my incoming MMS messages are being resized somehow, so I end up with these 160x120 pictures when I forward them to my email or PC. My w600 kept the original image size when it received images and so forth when I sent to them to my email.
Lastly, the phone mentions nothing about EDGE, only GSM and GPRS in the profiles. Does GSM = EDGE?
AD discussions continues below...
Can you customize the message alert?
w810i vs w810c ?
Im about to buy a unlocked as I feel it may still be a long wait, anyone disagree ?
Warranty Only Valid in Country of Release?
He also said that if you buy the phone elsewhere, the warrany is valid only in the country it was released in. I'm assuming that the phones for sale on ebay and others are the Eurpoean/Canadian/Asian Pacific versions.
Anyone have any insight into this? Has anyone bought the phone and actually used the warranty? If so, where did you buy?
any update to dropped call issue and sw fix ?
I'm loving it!!
Bottom line: It's an awesome phone!!
Hmm so quite I was wonder if Cingular???
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)
USE THE PC BASED UPDATE FOR THIS HANDSET AT OUR OWN RISK.
Another question...Firmware update process?
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.
Samsung D600 Or Sony Ericsson w810
HEY RICH OR ERIC SERIOUS BLUETOOTH QUESTION!
Camera compared to MM-A800 2MP/Auto-Focus?
Watch Video Horizontally?
As usual, great review. Your continued thoroughness and updates are awesome for the community. Thanks again.
Question is: would it be possible, to watch videos in a horizontal format? For ex: when taking pictures the camera shows on screen in a wide screen format.
I am curious if there is an option to watch videos in vertical as well as horizontal format.
Also, could you comment on web browsing as well as overall gprs/edge speed on the device?
