Summary: This is my third Tm717 Sony Ericsson (they appeal to me, but, I have a problem with getting them wet). My issue with the last purchase was, I bought a "New" phone through Amazon. The phone looked good but the box and contents had obviously been disturbed. Since my history with Amazon was good I started using the phone, but soon discovered that the graphics on the outside of the flip lid were not working.
Summary: Have now had 3 of these phones... love the idea of the phone. Hate the phone. SOOO buggy. My latest one would randomly stop recognizing the SIM card and would stop functioning... in the middle of calls, texts and sometimes just sitting on the table. My first one shut off randomly. I would take it out of my pocket/purse only to find it powered off and a series of missed texts and calls. Second one the hinge broke (after a year of use).
Summary: i decided to buy this phone because of it's features plus it looks good. but when i received it and opened the box the phone looked little old because it had wearing signs. it wasnt good as new. now the camera turns on by itself and phone becomes unlocked by itself. it seems like the phone has malfunction problem.
