Excerpt: This is for the Z750a. This particular phone has many useful features but it really doesn't meet my personal needs. It is a nice color and size, but the front display that scrolls sideways is pretty much useless. By the time the phone rings and you look at it, the callers name has already scrolled off the screen. It also has a button on the side that sends a busy signal to the caller, which I am forever pressing by accident when I try to open the phone.
Excerpt: This was my first cellphone that I ever bought with my own money. It cost me $300 at the time because it just came out. I have to say that was 6-7 years ago. I've had it with me for 6-7 years without it ever breaking to a point that I can't use it no more.A few months after I bought this cellphone, I found out that the price was absurdly expensive. Not to mention they came out with a new one the w810i shortly afterwards.
It'll get the job done, use it as a main phone or backup.

Summary: I purchased this phone because I trust Sony Ericsson phones. They've always been very solid phones and take a beating. The phone handles basic features such as texting, phone calls and photos very well. There's a 20 phone call history, can store at least 400-500 text messages depending on size and the pictures it takes are decent for a 2005 phone. It has expandable memory only up to 2gb though on Sony's M2 memory card.
Summary: Camera quality is low Need a phone lock.. Anyone can access the phone with the keypad lock.. Therefore, need a phone lock so that to access it a lock code is needed.. The slide part is cool.. Use of color is very good..
Excerpt: I loved everything about this phone except the actual things that deal with using it to call and talk to people. It had terrible reception and always dropped calls. This is mainly because the phone is tri-band and I think i needed the band that I was missing. Also, the caller on the other line was very hard to hear unless you were in a library. Unless you like saying what every other word, I wouldn't recommend this phone.
Excerpt: This is the worst and most expensive phone I've ever owned. I bought mine 4 months ago and I still curse at it daily. That's how bad it is. So many bad stuff I don't know where to start... 1) Some basic phone 101 functions are not included. For example, if a friend sends you a text message to ask you the number of your friend John, on most phones you can access your "contacts" while writing the message, and get John's number automatically.
Summary: We have two w800i's in my household. Fabulous phones: well made, excellent camera, very usable calendar diary, easy navigation. The Walkman side of things is a different matter. When it works it is a fabulous resource. Great sound, excellent storage. But, and this is a significant "but", there seem to be a huge number of problems reported by w800i users like us who have difficulty transferring files between the computer and the phone.
