    1. The ringer will start at very low level, even if increasing ring volume
    is switched off.

    2. There is no blinking light anywhere indicating that the phone is on and
    there is reception.

    Is this part of the phone, or is mine a faulty example?

    Thanks

    Yup, normal.

    Yup, again it's normal.

    No, your phone sounds like it's working as it's designed to. You're going
    to be even more upset once you find out the SE in their wisdom have chosen
    to remove the remaining battery time indicator.

    Believe you are on the early production of T610. Was told they have fixed
    this problem. It is not normal.

    Let me reassure after the previous post !

    It is normal. There is no blinking LED anymore for signal (only for
    charging)

    The volume thing is normal. It's rumoured this may be changed in a future
    firmware upgrade but until then, all T610's do this

    SE will update your firmware free of charge within the warranty period. I'm
    wating for the next release before having it done

    Why am I not surprised that a top-poster would give such wrong information?

    It is perfectly normal on all current versions of the T610. There is no LED
    on the phone to show that you have a signal. As for the ascending volume of
    the ringtone, that may change on future versions of the firmware, but on all
    current versions, that is the way it is.

    I can confirm that the increasing ringtone (slightly annoying eh?) and
    the lack of indication lights are standard. Not sure about the lack of
    battery indictor ( maybe it was a joke?!) as my T610 has one.

    The sound problem could be solved by downloading the tune to a PC , change
    the MIDI sound level and load it back to the T610.
    Works fine ...

    No, no joke intended, but perhaps I could have been a little clearer. You
    will have the basic indicator on your standby screen, but on pushing the
    side buttons on the T610, you just get basic info about the state the phone
    is in. On the older models (T39, T68i etc) this used to produce a screen
    giving a good estimate of how much battery time was left in hours - don't
    know why they decided to remove this useful feature, especially given that
    Sony are now involved with their InfoLithium technology.

    I upgraded from a T39 to a Voda Live branded T610 & the lack of time
    remaining was one of the 1st things I noticed. On my T39 (with pretty
    old firmware), the time remaining was wildly inaccurate, would often
    give an unrealistic talk time then later would knock down the talk time
    & increase the standby time. If it said 10hrs standby remaining, it
    usually meant the phone would die within an hr.

    I would prefer the T610 to show it but it is a very rough estimate only.
    I'm not altogether surprised it was scrapped. It would be better if it
    gave an estimate of both talk & standby times with more realistic
    estimates. Being in a marginal reception area for a long time will knock
    down either anyhow.

    Not all T610 has low volume. Only those who sent in (or those already has
    modification in factory) for the hissing problem get this symptom.

    Later batch of T610 already has this problem fixed.

    Not to my knowledge, they don't! Perhaps you'd care to enlighten us to
    which hardware & firmware revision has these changes?

    I'd be very doubtful if SE ever decide to fix the ascending ringtone *bug*.

    ....because they don't see it as a bug, it is a feature designed to protect
    the users' ears if the phone happens to ring when against the ear.
