    i HATE mobile phones. i hate texting people, i hate silly ringtones, i hate those phones with loudspeakers on them and i hate being called when i'm in the middle of playing worms on xbl. but nevertheless, they are a necessary evil in my line of work.

    so i got a call from orange today saying i can have a free phone, as i've had mine for about 2 years and ol' trusty has started to do strange things. not knowing anything about phones i just said ok! to the sony erriccson w810i in white. anyone know about phones? is this one any good? or did i just get pwn'd by a salesman?

    From what I can see it's a decent phone.
    All really depends on what you want to do with it.

    It's a good phone that specializes in playing MP3's. Not sure about the UK, but Sony Ericsson has been marketing this phone heavily here in Canada. Still, it's one of there most recent offerings. 2. 0 megapixel camera, 8 hours continuous talk time, blah blah blah.

    The SE phone I'd like to get my hands on is the K790a, but it's $400 friggin dollars here, and isn'ta phone offered in a package by my provider. Looks like I'll be sticking with my little 510a for a while.

    I have the K800i, which is the slightly different international version of the K790a

    Maind differences are the K800 has a secondary QCIF resolution camera for video calling while the K790 does not and the K800 has Dual Mode UMTS while the K790 has EDGE.

    Not only is it a bit better than the K790a (although I'm not sure as to why it only gets 2 1/2 hours of continuous talk time) but you can get the 800i in royal silver. The K790 here only comes in black and brown. I'm jealous.

    i dunno if im going to keep the phone, i might sell it on ebay. there's one thing i love about my current phone, i can charge it via usb, simply plugging it into my laptop while im working is great - i'm always travelling to different offices and i never need to find my charger.

    all i really care about is phone calls and texts, the camera is a bonus. the walkman stuff is meh, i have an ipod. i pray that its a chrismas miracle and i can charge it via usb.

    I hate cellphones and those who use them for no real reason in public spaces, but one day I'll get one with the CTU ringtone.

    That's what I love about my Blackberry, you can charge it via USB and it came with a wall adapter that has a USB plug on it so you can plug it into the wall, a stick a USB cable into that and charge it that way too!

    Consumer affordable mobile phones are one of the worst technological developments of the last 10 - 15 years.

    If I was infinately rich, i'd buy all the mobile operators in the country and rename them STFU just so that people have that on thier screens whenever they have signal.
