Summary: I bought this as a cheap backup for my own Equinox. Mine is beat up, and the seller said this one would be beat up too, so I knew this would not be a pretty phone. It wasn't, and that's OK. The phone seems to work fine, and it came with a charger so now I have a backup for my whole system for much less $$ than a new phone. It arrived very quickly - much quicker than I expected. Very happy with the seller.
Summary: My experience was good buying the sony ericson but there was a detail that in the picture the adverticement the sratches were not visible and i got a little disapointed but after all the phone worked out good.
Sony Ericsson Equinox TM717 3g has something wrong with it!

Summary: Something is wrong with my Sony Ericsson Equinox Tm717 cell phone. Sometimes when I press the phone buttons to access information, it freezes up. So far, eventually it will work...but I can't help thinking that I was duped. Surely, the person who sent me a phone knew what was wrong, or didn't test it enough.
Excerpt: I'm just going to say that, since this is my first Sony Ericsson phone, I can't really say anything about the overall reliability of this brand. And also, because this phone came free with my contract, I can't really say anything about the price either. That said, I love this little phone.
Summary: The screen on my original phone went bad after 18 months so I bought this refurbished one. While it appears new it does not work as well as the original If I could take the screen off and place it on the old phone I would. It was cheap enough so I can live with it. I don't need a pocket computer so this is ample although it is goofy at times to operate.
Summary: As of August 2011, this phone is still for $100 on Tmobile's website. I had the chance to use this phone since my own phone died. My Sony Ericson background: I use to have the sony walkman phone. That was THE BEST PHONE EVER. It was great, the software was nice, and everything worked well. The older walkman phone lines were amazing when they came out. Flash forward several years later. I have this in my hand. The phone looks great.
Summary: I have always used SE and this phone is a bit of a dissappointment. The 3.2 mpx camera is terrible compared to the 3.2 mpx cybershot on my old phone. TMobile Software has limited the options to customize shortcuts and menu style so the phone is VERY USER UNFRIENDLY! I tried all to customize the shortcuts but no luck. They are predefined. Crappy phone overall. Bonus is that it looks pretty. Motion control works from time to time, fails frequently.
