    Re: Sony Ericsson T610


    I got mine this week, its a great little phone, but mine is branded with
    Vodafone live (UK) and the graphics are not as nice as the original SE
    unbranded T610, however £30 and a trip to a mobile phone dealer type
    bloke will sort that out

    The only annoying things I have found with it are:

    1) Battery life - I charged the fone fully over nite, and by yesterday
    evening (it was on its last drips of energy) However I was dong a lot
    of playing around with the camera so this may be a good reason as to
    why.

    2) Incrementing ringtone. The phones tone will not kick in to full
    strength for a couple of seconds.

    3) Vodafone branding - not much I can do about that considering the
    fone was a free upgrade, but it can, and will be unlocked

    Apart from thsoe things, I am happy with my phone. I have a couple of
    technical problems which I think are more to do with the service
    provider than the phone (not being able to send/recieve email or
    recieve MMS)
    The camera is OK and does a job, bluetooth and IT work a treat, and
    there are plenty or resources online to enhance the phone.

    Re: Sony Ericsson T610

    I bought it two weeks ago.
    It is a very nice phone with a good and large display.
    The only things I miss are the LED's for the network and Bluetooth like the
    T68m.

    Try the phone at http://www.sonyericsson.com.

    if you've played with the phone, this means the displays backlight was
    on.

    This has major effects on energy consumption. On my T68i and my T300
    the battery life will come to an end after about 4 hours of backlight
    activity. I think, it's similar on the T610.

    So the time you've seen has nothing to do with actual standby time (at
    least I hope so).

    4) Can't see a damn thing in bright sunlight.

    5) Themes take a while to load and screensavers run very slowly

    6) Picture quality is not bad but no good in the dark (see another thread
    for the impending flash unit) and you have to keep the phone VERY still.

    7) Start up sound is very low

    8) When you view templates etc it automatically saves them in 'unsent
    items' - very annoying

    9) Voicetags are VERY quiet (don't see the point of the phone repeating
    them when you highlight a name when you can't hear a thing)

    On the plus side:

    1) Bluetooth is Ace.
    2) Java games are Ace
    3) Poly tones are excellent quality
    4) Camera is very easy to use and pics are easily shared
    5) Display resolution is superb

    All in all a great phone. I have a PDA (Palm M505) so the 610 suits me. If
    you are after Organiser abilities I would imagine there are better options
    around.

    Had mine two weeks today.

    Pros:
    - Great sounding polytones
    - Assign pictures to contacts
    - Bluetooth & IR
    - Fairly decent camera for a phone

    Cons:
    - Screen unusable in sunlight
    - You have to navigate to the "Shortcut Menu"
    - Standby screen joystick actions not customisable
    - 'Screensaver' replaced by a clock after 10 seconds (not adjustable)
    - Auto keylock delay not adjustable
    - Handsfree not included
    - ugly

    That doesn't sound too good but it's got more pluses than some other
    phones:

    V200 pros:
    - Killer looks
    - Great screen

    7250 pros:
    - Looks cool

    Re: Sony Ericsson T610


    I've got mines a few weeks.
    You can compare this cellular phone with pocket pc's. It has a full
    functional organizer, which is the main function i bought this camera
    for. It's a great phone! About the battery.. camera and ringtones will
    end up in an empty accu fast...

    Left joystick selects whatever is at the top of the Shortcuts so you can
    customise this.

    Re: Sony Ericsson T610


    i got mine and had been using for 1 month. i just love the phone. the
    shape looks nice more like a controller shape. as far as i concern,
    onli thing is that the system responded slow like anyother SE or
    ericsson phone. The file sharing is supereb. no convertion needed,
    direct transfer jpg, gif, midi to and from the phone. Decteded as a
    modem my computer and can dail into gprs like normal modem (speed might
    be slower). having morphun game is really "More Fun" their games is
    nice and can have network games through bluetooth (no longer need to
    point to each other like infra-red).
