    is the SE-V800 functionally the same as the SE-Z800i - except that the Z800
    does not seem to have the Vodafone branding?

    If so - any companies capable of 'flashing' a V800 into a Z800?

    Also - anyone know if there's a maximum size allowed for the Memory Stick
    duo pro in a V800.
    I would like to treat my V800 to a 512MB MSD card for more mp3 sounds on the
    move.

    TIA DavyPaul

    Here is a cut and paste from the Knowledge Base available at
    www.sonyericsson.com . I just used the free text enquiry system and got this
    answer:
    Which memory sticks are supported (V800/Z800 series)

    ------------------------------------------------

    These Sony Ericsson mobile phones support Memory Stick DUO and Memory
    Stick DUO PRO up to 1GB.

    This solution is valid for the following product and environment:


    V800


    Vodafone 802SE


    Z800i

    Yes. I've done that.

    thanks for that! I bought a sandisk MSD pro 512 yesterday and it works a
    treat.
    These guys have a piece of software for collating mp3 'broadcasts'
    http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php


    all the best, DavyPaul

    Hi David,

    Yes, I have successfully flashed my V800 into a Z800.

    My solution was the following:
    - Total Multi Server - http://www.totalserver.net/
    - T28 Service Cable (a friend of mine already had one, got it from here:
    http://www.premiergsm.com//cat--Sony...atacables.html )
    - Total Multi Server Credit (I got it from www.faceoffmobiles.com ,
    keyed in my e-mail address, clicked on PayPal...)

    The flashing process took me about 30 minutes (I got very nervous,
    because I didn't want to loose my phone at the end...), but when the
    client said "finished", I was happy to see the standard SE-Logo after
    turning on the phone.

    (I removed SIM and MemoryStick while flashing, used the following files:
    Firmware: Z800i-V800i_R2Y005_ZONE_1_EU-EMEA.V8S
    Language: Z800i-V800i_R2Y005_EU5_EN_FR_DE_IT.V8D
    , Firmware Version is shown as R1Y005)

    I am very happy with my new "Z800" (the only difference to a "real" Z800
    is the internal Phone identifier (CID29 vs. CID36), wich AFAIK is only
    used when flashing the phone)

    Positive:
    - No branding
    - You can set Standard (non-DRM'ed) MP3s as Ringtones / Alarm / ...
    - right softbutton is shown as "more" again
    - Standard WAP-Browser, no locked Interenet access profiles
    - IMHO nicer Menu graphics
    - Contact image is displayed on external display

    Negative:
    - NO OFFICIAL WARRANTY!! - if anything goes wrong, you're on your own!!
    - YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA ON THE PHONE!!
    I backuped / restored my contacts / calendar entries with this prog:
    http://k700.hitziger.net - K700 Little Helper (others are useful too)
    WARNING! Make sure to set the Timezone and daylightsaving the same as
    before, I got all my calendar entries back with one hour offset at the
    first try!!
    - Phone is not recognized by USB cable anymore (although I never use
    this one) You should be able to d/l the official driver as soon as
    it will be available on the official SE site.
    - Vodaphone Live is gone (I have never used this anyway...)


    I believe that there are other tools that are able to do the job, but
    this is what worked for me...

    Total Cost:
    10£ for Data Cable (wich I didn't have to buy...)
    8£ (~18 Swiss Francs on CreditCard) for Flash Credit
    - IMHO, totally worth it!

    Z800 USB drivers are now availble on the SE web - at least at the danish
    site! Works fine....

    That is brilliant! When I've had it six months, I will try this!
    Good advice about the backups!
    All the best, David.
