never buy this one.. it so laggy phone, not smartphone too many application

I think this phone is not intended for our country(Philippines). If
you browse the the date settings or area you can't find Philippines
but rather use China or Hongkong. Another problem there will be no network
signal is if you turn off the 3G and use GSM only. If you are going
to use GSM and 3G it will just give you a very low network signal. Your
signal will be lost inside buildings. This phone is not recommended.

G700 is a good smartphone. I been using it since 5 mth ago. The phone
is really good indeed. BUT, I already sick and tired with this phone.
The main problem that keeps annoying me: 1: Task Manager, pop up whenever
i was texting or calling someone. And also, its so annoying while browsing
the internet. 2: Touchscreen malfunction. I think UIQ3 system in this
phone is uselees. I can't write any note, even to scroll the main menu
3: Camera doesn't work properly, I use different size of M2 card from
256MB to 1GB but still, i have to pull it out and re-insert it again.
That all i have to do whenever i wish take a photo. I have tried some
different brand of M2 card and Im still facing the same problem..:-(
4:Dump file created, should I have this kind of useless thing? and how
about my internal memory? I wish this phone was built with advanced
technology but it seem like i have to turn myself to others...totally

Never buy this phone. Ever. Stupid thing shuts down by itself atleast
5 times a day on average. The net connection is always slow. Now the
loudspeaker has stopped working. If I could, I would throw this phone
down and stamp on it till it is smashed to tiny little pieces! Trash.
That is all this phone is.

after using this phn for 6 mnths i've to admit dat dis is a piece of
junk and it was my worst mistake to buy this phone being tempted by
its touchscreen without knowing anythng abt it.just a couple of mnths
later it stopped working.i rushed to se care and aftr 38 days i got
my phn back! now the touchscreen again refuses to work-anywhere i tap
the screen,it opens task manager.besides this it has an awful speaker.music
is loud but sounds husky at top volume with xtra treeble.it runs on
the useless UIQ3 system which puts the phn to hang a lot.every now and
then it restarts sayin dump file created or application closed etc.phn
memory gradually increases without utilising it anywhere.so i have to
reset it every month losing all msgs stored(i have the back up of contact
or notes on d mem crd).through hdphn music is mediocre as it belongs
to sony and should have a better quality.the only good thing about dis
phn is it has a good camera and the flash is also very powerfull.without
3 g network net is very slow as it doesn't have edge.sound of earpiece
is so low that u may not even hear what d caller is sayin.one of my
friend also has this useless creation and he faces the same problems
too as i stated.i was a die hard fan of sony but after using this it
will be a long time untill i buy sony again.with a big smile i want
to smash ths phn by thor's hammer for wasting my money and time.

and i have problems with the speakers, my touch screen stoped working

Reviewed by Martin Gruber from Austria on 22nd
I like this phone but am not happy with the clarity of the speaker.
Often sounds like poor reception etc. Have had it in to the supplier
several times but no real improvement. Otherwise phone can be slow but
I like the diary and write mode. Don't need a lot of the facilities
but what's new, this applies to probably 80% of phone users! Anybody
had the same speaker problem?

this phone is good, but you might as well get the SE g900. better design,
2 different colours, better features. (e.g. a 5mp camera and touch autofocus)
However, both phones are really good. i like the fact they both have
the option of using the touchscreen, or using the phone like a normal
non-touchscreen phone. Great value (:

never regret bought any SE phone before this but this time i am so regret

can't even hear voice clearly when talking on the phone. i hate this
model. i prefer my previous SE K530i... i am so disappointed with SE..
Reviewed by Grace Ho from Singapore on 25th Dec
Do not buy this phone model. I had only bought it for 1 year and the
touchscreen is malfunctioning. It was still working until it suddenly
stop having the touch function. After reading what can be done to "unlock"
and "re-enable" the touchscreen, I realised alot of people are having
the same problem as me and they had a worse experience as their phone
are less than a year old and Ericsson took forever to get the touchscreen
repaired. If you are to avoid any heartache regarding a newly purchased
phone being spoilt, I suggest you avoid the phone until Ericsson managed
to find what is wrong with the phone's touchscreen and get a new batch
of lasting phones out.

My mom got this for my birthday and it was fantastic at first, i got
a lot of attention but now it spontaneously restarts, sometimes it just
wont start and i've notced before that the camera wouldnt activate or
an application would freeze on me.. it lags, its slow, camera was good,
and i loved the notepad application. if it was flawlessly engineered
and had no mehanical problems it would have been my last phone.

Not a big fan. Touch screen stopped working after only a few months.
And the keys get scratched very easily, making it look old and tattered
and cheap. Also it is quite slow.

It is a very nice phone.. Very easy to use.. Excellent music and camera..
And am in love for it.. Features are superb.. But somehow it brings
with it a lot of problems.. 1. Touchscreen stopped working.. Where ever
you point task manager opens.. Got it repaired once.. Now again.. 2.
Some prob with bluetooth.. Sometimes you just cant send anythin.. If
these probs can be fixed its a really amazing phone.. Now even with
my touchscreen malfunctioning, its comfortable to use still.. Gotta
see wat the sony pple ll do this time.. Finally the advice is dont buy
this phone.. Think its production is also stopped by now..

Now again the touchscreen has become very erratic, when I click on an

DO NOT BUY SONY ERICSON G700. IT IS A PEACE OF JUNK. I BOUGHT THIS AS
A BIRTH DAY GIFT TO MY WIFE, AND ENDED UP WITH RUNNING AROUND LOCAL
SERVICE CENTER. ON VERY FIRST DAY WHEN I OPENED BOX IN HOME, CAME TO
KNOW SPEAKER IS NOT WORKING, WHEN I RUSHED TO SERVICE CENTER THEY TOLD
IT DOESN'T COME UNDER WARRANTY. So i had to pay S$25 to replace speaker.
After 7 days it is getting restarted. Every minute it gets restarted.
I may have to bring it back to service center. DON'T BUY SONY ERICKSON

Erickson from Nokia. and this will be the last. I am going to switch

this phone sucks. i just bought it last week and bought a 8gb memory
so i can download stuff. i plugged it on the usb of my laptop and it
won't stop restarting ever since! i don't know what to do with it anymore.
even if i unplug it, take the battery off and return it, it's still
restarting automatically after a few seconds. i'm gonna return it to
the store now.

when tapped but still, it doesn't work. Great phone though. It's still
manageable with its touchscreen feature malfunctioning. LOL. I love

Hi, I have also the same problem. Especially the stand-by memory is
increasing around 90-95 kb for every photo taken. Even if u delete the
photo, stand by memory wont decrease. Once stand-by reaches 1MB, after
that it will be increasing in the range of 2MB, 3 MB and so on for 10
photos taken. U just check it whether is it increasing like this for
u also. When I surrounded my handset in SE service center they couldnt
solve ;-( Regards Deiva

I just bought my phone 2 months ago. At first I thought it would probably
be my last phone, I thought it was because of its candy bar make, the
large toughscreen, properly set-up keys, 3.2MP camera and the notepad.
I got greatly disappointed when this mobile phone suddenly restarted
without me clicking anything. what made it even worst, was that it would
never stop restarting. it had been open for several seconds then restart
again. It says, Application Error e_sock_smswap; reason code: User;
21. If you guys there know anything on how to troubleshoot this.. please
please help (also to those from Sony Ericsson). This is a far worst
experience ever with a Sony Ericsson phone.

Hi No doubt the mobile phone G700 is excellent But I am facing a problem
in my cell phone Sony Ericsson G700. The problem is that it is showing
wrong memory..the phone memory is getting used up day by day as i'm
using my cell, whether i listen to songs or i click photographs or use
any other application!! There are different areas where the memory is
used up in the phone memory like: Media files Camera Messaging Contacts
Standby etc.. The camera memory is used up when i click photos and with
it Stand by memory also fills but when i delete those photographs camera
memory becomes zero but Standy still shows the same incremented value!!!
The problem in my cell is that this standby memory fills. I'm not able
to figure out where is this memory utilised?? The memory fills up gradually
and consequently the whole 160 mb (phone memory) gets exhausted within
no time. Kindly solve this problem.
