I have only had this phone a week, bought it on the strength of reviews on this website so I felt it was only correct to enter my own review, even if it is somwhat limited.
I have been a Nokia user for many years and was reluctant to change primarily because of all the Nokia accessories I have accumulated.
But to the T610.......I love it!
Some wonderful features, when my sons call me now not only does their number appear on screen, so does their photo! And they have their own distinct… Read Full Review

If you need to get 1-touch recording on this phone it is still possible. Follow the following steps please.
1. Go to "My Shortcuts' using the joystick
2. Then to the last option "Edit Shortcuts"
3. Check "Record Sound"
4. When the question "Position" appears, answer 1
Now go back completely. If you want to record anything just move the joystick to left, viola! "Recording; 0.00 appears on screen.
That's all from me. Hope the Sony Ericcson Team will give us the s/w upgarde to do the… Read Full Review

Different reviews of the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone have been extremely helpful. I wanted to upgrade from the T300, but I actually initially bought the Nokia 6610 before buying the SE T610. And now, having compared them against each other feature by feature, there is absolutely no comparison! Sony Ericsson T610 wins! I list here some of the things that impressed me about the SE T610, and others that disappointed me about this phone… Read Full Review

The Sony Ericsson T610 is quite simply the easiest phone to use, simple to move between functions, camera and screen are fantastic, brilliant refresh rate, night time mode on camera allows very reasonable photos to be taken after dark, dont know how I ever survived without Bluetooth before, all in all if you are looking for a new phone look no futher… Read Full Review

I've owned the Sony Ericsson T610 for about 3 months now and got it as an upgrade direct from vodafone for around 11 quid...bargain! this is one of the best phones i have owned in the last 8 years...its just really good. the only real downside is that all of its features get in the way of quick menu navigation...its easy to get lost in all those icons, and the other thing is the four tiny navigation keys surrounding the joystick thing...makes it hard to remember what to press without looking at… Read Full Review

The Sony Ericsson T610 is a capable phone but better for kids than adults. Text fonts are too small so if you need reading glasses you'll need them for this - not great if you are out for a stroll. (Similar problem with LCD monitors on Digicams). This is unlikely to be a problem if your eyesight is good. Amazingly, the text messaging facility gives you the option to use larger fonts and embolden them, but you have to go through the routine for each message which makes it pointless. How daft can… Read Full Review

On the whole, the Sony Ericsson T610 is an attractive handset with an excellent set of features, but it is let down by reliability problems in the software.
The main thing that drew me to the T610 is the fact that I needed bluetooth, and the T610 is one of the cheaper phones on the market with this feature. Of course, I could have gone for the Nokia 3650, but I had a lot of problems with my 7650 and a friend of mine has had problems with his 3650, so I decided to steer clear.
I'm generally… Read Full Review

The Sony Ericsson T610 is possibly the worst phone I have ever come accross. When I first purchased I thought it was the businees, the features were great, reception was acceptable and it all ran very smoothly. I had read all the reports about the faults i.e the crackling reception etc.. but I didnt experience them so I didnt think that it was a problem. I had the phone about 35 days when all of these problems started to arise, so I couldnt return it and get a new as it was over the 30 day… Read Full Review

I got this phone after reading the reviews on here and i had already decided i did not want another nokia. This is much better than any nokia. The points about slow screen access etc are exagerated and it does not take ages, if any pause does occur you soon get used to it and its a normal thing. Its easy to access the use of camera, calls, messages and wap just from a 2 or more presses of buttons. It's very light and a good centimetre shorter than a nokia 3310. The only problem i have is trying… Read Full Review

Before I bought this Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone last week I had always sworn by Nokia phones and was very reluctant to buy anything else. However, although there are some improvements that could be made, this is a fab little phone. My last phone was an 8310 and, although I liked it, I never really saw it as a phone I could keep for a long time. This one however is much more like it. With it's sleek design, polyphonic ringtones, camera, colour screen and wap facilities, it's a real winner… Read Full Review

Thanks to all who have contributed to this Sony Ericsson T610 forum, because based on what I read, and with a lot of other camera phones on the market, I was convinced by you all that to upgrade from my T300 to the T610 was the correct thing to do. What a remarkable mobile phone. If any of you reading this to help with your decision on buying the phone have had concerns over the rare negative things said in this forum, forget them! All the good things you have read are true, I assure you. Let's… Read Full Review

Mine failed to register the Sim 32 days after purchase and I have not seen it for 5 weeks, Sony or their designated repairer in the UK have refused to replace the phone and Carphone Warehouse seem uninterested in pushing....my advice would be to steer clear and stick with Nokia till Sony and their distributors can repair a clearly faulty phone within two weeks or have the interest in thier reputation to replace a phone when they have had it longer than me STEER CLEAR of the T610 for now… Read Full Review

The Sony Ericsson T610 is a quality mobile phone with lots fo offer. First of all it has a really nice feel to it, thought the design of the phone itself could be more sexy. I really like the joystick control even though there seems to be a lot of people out there who do not. The games are good, the ringtones are fantastic, the themes are good, thought the screensavers that are already pre installed could be better. I found this phone to have one of the easiest menu systems around, and i… Read Full Review

I had this Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone on trial following eventual despair with the menu on the Panasonic GD87. The camera is obviously of much poorer quality and the results show this (compared to CMOS camera in the GD87). The camera was the deciding factor. The phone itself is excellent, as I have found with previous Ericssons'. I would get one if: the camera is improved; picture storage improved; MMS storage made available… Read Full Review

Well, after first deciding to go for the Nokia 3650 over the Sony Ericsson T610, I finally decided to give Sony a go when the 3650 mobile phone proved too bulky. Boy I'm glad I did.
This IS the best phone I've ever seen. I'm a mobile veteran having had one mobile or another for the last 9 years so consider myself qualified to make that statement.
First impressions were not favorable mind you. I didn't like the look of it at first, hence the reason why I went with the 3650. However, after a… Read Full Review

Having purchased the phone only 9 days ago, I have decided to take it back to the shop and swap it for a Sharp GX10I.
There are two main reasons for this; the first is the annoying hissing noise through the earpiece when on calls. I've had two T610's within the above-mentioned time, the first was a 26 weeker and the second a 28 weeker both with the same problem.
The second is screen quality outside, what a manufacturing nightmare, what were they thinking.
So the accumulation of both these… Read Full Review
