I suspect this phone is about to be "released" on the Sony Ericsson website, they just added a new Accessories section.

And there's thist post on HowardForums:

S710a SHOULD be available the week of the 27TH!

Ok, first of all i would like to thank "otamywy" on the ATT forum for pointing it out.
"Go to Cingular.com, put your mouse over 'Customer Service' and click on 'Common Questions'. Type in your zip code. Selece 'Equipment and Accessories' as the category and 'Phones' and the sub-category. Click on #9, "How do I learn more about the Sony Ericsson S710a?" This is what it says (I copied and pasted):

"The Sony Ericsson S710a is expected to be available for sale the week of December 27th, 2004 at a price as low as $399.99 on a 2 year agreement.*

*Pricing and product availability may vary by location" "


Now this is really cool. I checked out t...

I spoke to a Cingular rep said this phone should def be out in less than 2 weeks. Nothing really official, but stated he has an inside source. Can't wait to get my hands on this phone 🙂

Nobody I know on the inside has any specific release date, and nobody says it will be any later than the end of the month which corresponds with your 2 weeks. I'm not gonna hold my breath, but it oughta be here soon.

The s700i has been removed from the fun + downloads section (where you get free SE wallpapers, ringtones, etc.), i'm guessing because they're preparing to redo it as both s710a and s700i very soon..

Havent you learned yet, that some people plain and simple dont know their ass from a hole in the ground? I highly doubt any of those customer care reps. would know.

Sorry to disappoint 😉

how you can guess march when sony says this month, cingular site says this month (or ending week of), and cingular reps say january makes no sense to me. also why you would keep an inferior nokia around...no sense... but whatevs.

Inferior Nokia???? You have no clue..Other than a 1.3 megapixel camera (I have software that makes my pictures 1600 x 1200 in resolution by the way), please name one thing this particular Sony Ericcson phone does better than my Nokia..Is it a smartphone? NO..Does it have an operating system? NO...Does it support 1GB of additional memory like I currently have in my Nokia?? Can you run multiple programs at once?? Well since you it doesn't have an operating system like mine does, the answer is NO..Please don't call a product you don't have inferior because you have nothing to base that on except opinion..I am definitely not bad mouthing this phone but it doesn't have a few of the things I have come to enjoy that my Nokia does..and I have been u...

hey all

i just went into my local cingular to pay a bill and take a peak at the z500 for my woman.. while i was paying my bill i asked about the s710a.. as for release my friend at the novi store in michigan had told me that the week of the 27th was the first release date but it was pushed back.. i was also told that the reason why it was pushed back was an se issue not cingular.. its taken longer than thought for se to get it to cingulars warehouse..
i mention if he knew if lock line would be covering this one and he had said he didnt know.. i had said its rumored to be under 400$ which is what i heard locklines limit was.. he had stated that it wasnt as much price of the phone as it was did lockline think they would have to fork ...

i dont like Nokias for the following reasons:
-bad camera quality (go to mobileburn.com and check the megapixel camera comparison)
-bad key layout
-Not ergonomic
-too large.

also, every electronic product on the market has an operating system. whether it be your calculator or your cell phone.

Dec 27, 2004, 9:07 PM
All of the above mentioned reasons you mentioned are opinionated, not factual..whether you know it or not, there is a difference..which operating system does the s710a run on????? My 6620 runs on the Symbian..

the sony runs on a sony proprietary OS. Think about the word: Operating System. things cannot operate without a system for it to work around. Symbian is more adaptable, but the sony OS is very highly regarded.

and the quality of the camera is hardly an opinion. look at the omparison and try to tell me that the nokia's camera is better.

Highly reguarded?? By whom, you?? I understand the concept of operating system, but just look at the specs where it says "operating system" it says n/a..non applicable..anyway, you don't read my posts very well..I already gave this particular phone higher marks reguarding the camera..however, my NOKIA camera is adequate..keep in mind, this is a PHONE first and my NOKIA performs superbly in that respect..

I tell you what you do, since you so openly called my Nokia 6620 INFERIOR, I challenge you to search the phone database here, and point out to me a phone that got a higher average rating on the user review portion..My 6620 got an average rating of 4.46.....even the "world's best" V3 RAZR clocks in with at 3.77 rating..I am patiently waiting on your results.............

I'm just writing to say that yes, your nokia 6620 review rating is high but I have seen at least 3 phones that has a higher rating. Such as the Nokia 6230.

No offense here...but 3 whole phones? wow. That 6620 must sure suck if 3 phones got a higher rating! 😁

Can't we all just get along?!?
...
Icyhot

Dec 28, 2004, 2:13 PM
Yes it is higher, but it is a Nokia..I like the 6230, but the screen size was just a little small for me..again, I am not bashing the Sony in no way, but overall I think (this is opinionated mind you) the 6620 is just a better all around phone..I appreciate your reply..Thank you..

i am sorry if i have offended you, bashing nokia, the phones fit different personalities. while you may want Symbian so you can run more applications and such, i just got a new laptop, so that is where my mobility is. i've been waiting for a good (over megapixel) camera with bluetooth, and this phone does that plus edge and great multimedia features (including argueably the best mp3 player (mobileburn.com)). i need something smaller than a nokia "brick", so a flip or swivel will work better for me. i've been looking for a reason to ditch the cam i keep in my backpack, and this is a great reason to, the 262k color high-res screen is also a perk.

Nevertheless, I couldn't care less when this phone comes out..I have the 6620 and wouldn't trade it for this phone anyway..
