Where should I download music for the W300i

I bought a SE W300i a few months ago, and I love it! I have Yahoo! Music Match - which is not compatible with the W300i. I would rather buy CDs online since it's a little bit cheaper.

Where should I legally download music from?

Bad battery life

Im having issues with both my wife's W300i as well as my own. Battery life sucks big time! I charged it last night and talked for about 45 minutes since then. This morning it has 65% battery left. No bluetooth, no games, no photos, no memory card and all the power saving features are on. I called At&T and the man told me to get radio Shack to give me a new battery, and use it until it died then charge it back up for 2.5 hours. I did this but the manager at Radio Shack gave me the battery from the display model (over my protest) he told me it had just been put up. So what do you guys think? Am I crazy here or do you think this is normal? Our 2 year old LG C2000 last longer than these things.

Questions before I buy this phone...

1. I know the camera isn't great, but all I want to do is link a picture of someone to their name in the address book on the phone. I assume you can do that, and make out who it is?

2. How many speed dials are there? My previous phone had 99, my current POS has 9.

3. How's the speaker phone quality? I can't use my current b/c no one can hear me unless I scream :/

4. How long can first and last names be in the address book? Currently I think I enter 10 characters total = CRAP.

Thanks in advance!!!

Signal Reception

I recently upgraded from the Sony Ericsson z300a to a Samsung Sync. I have had more dropped calls in three weeks than I had in a year and a half with the Sony. I am looking at the W300i as a replacement. How is the reception on this phone?

Better W300 USB transfer speed?

Is there a way to speed up the USB transfer? Is about 10MB/minute using the original cable that came with the kit.

I´m thinking about buying a 2GB M2 card to improve the MP3 storage, but at this speed 2GB would be a nightmare. Does somebody know if the DCU-60 is a different cable? A faster one? is this 10MB/m the fastest speed I´ll get from my W300i?

problem with voice dialing, bluetooth headset, and the w300i

This problem occurs when the phone is closed and am using a bluetooth headset.

The scenario is, I try to voice dial and it fails because I didn't speak clearly enough or something. If I try to voice dial again before the screen goes dark and the front screen goes dark while I'm doing it, control is transferred to the phone until I turn off the headset or redial with the headset.

Does anyone have a work around so that control is not transferred to the phone?

Ditching Protected Files

I'd like to find a way to get rid of the included files that came with the phone from Cingular originally...the picture of the skateboard wheel, the little disco goat, the Medley songfile, and the pre-installed messaging templates.

Because, seriously...the "Please pick up the phone c'mon now please pick up the phone" ringtone was clever for about 10 seconds, but I'll never use it. It's taking up wasted phone memory that could be used for, oh, ANYTHING else.

I'm not afraid of a debrand / firmware flash if that's what it's going to take.

Flash Lite

Does anyone know where I can download flash lite for use for the W300I ? Thanks.

Download your text messages to a PC!

This is awesome and works great with most any SE phone. Just SE phones though.

http://fma.sourceforge.net/ »

You can download your text messages and do a whole lot more with this program, it's awesome!

Check out this website for W300I

www.mobile9.com. You can download free games. I have about 40 games on my w300i such as sims2 and call of duty. Even old atari games on my walkman. also, i would highly suggest downloading the Opera Mini web browser. You would not believe how fast pages load in this browser. They load faster than my blackberry. I can even check myspace with this browser and add friends and send emails through myspace and leave comments. you all need to check it out. i would never give up my walkman!
