Hey is there anyone that likes Sony Ericssons? I think they are the best type of phones you can get. Everyone in my family has one!

I think they are good phones, especially as they have their own fimware which isn't too hard to get a hold of. Being able to debrand a phone and remove any vodafone restirctions is a big plus in my books.

I think they're great too.

I've gone T68i -> K700i -> K750i

Combined with a bluetooth Mac Sony Ericsson's they are unbeatable.

I have a Sony Ericsson P800 - my wife is using it. My first Bluetooth enabled phone was an Ericsson T39m - one of the best small phones I've seen, except battery life was really poor with Bluetooth on.

Overall good phones... I currently a Motorola MPx220 Windows Mobile though.

Huge SE fan right here.
I've got so many SE cables, chargers, service softwares and accessories here - It's quite scary.

I've owned a T610, T230 (firmware upgraded to a T290 though), T200 and what I currently use which is a P910. I'd love to go to a 3G handset but won't until they release a 3G enabled (and hopefully wifi) P-series phone.

Most phones I have owned apart from a few are Sony Ericsson. Excellent and not lacking in much. even the cheapest and nastiest ones (like a $150 t230) put a $400 nokia to shame.


T68i = Excellent, Amazing features, first popular colour phone.
t610 = Good, Not a fature missing but the camera was poor quality and the Vodafone Software crashed (the normal software was very reliable though)
t230 = Temp phone. For a $150 phone it had MMS, Voice AMR ringtones support, true pop3 email client, good texting software (remembered popular words and suggested them first)
k700i = Excellent phone, Many features and useful things
v800 = My new 3g baby. It's superb.

Sony Ericssons only downfall is the inability to add standard ringtones to "message alerts" which still has not been addressed in my new 3g phone (only 6 to choose from) and the cameras can be of dubious quality.

paradoxsm:

My k750i can do this, message alert options:
-no sound
-click
-message alert 1-6
-final option i can set to anything I like (mp3, midi, ringtone, whatever)

Maybe it's something vodafone disabled? As I'm using a parallel imported handset for now.

The Z600 couldn't have custom message tones. Always found that really annoying.

But on the P910 it allows virtually any supported audio file as a message alert - I have a mp3 at the moment :)
