The Sony Ericsson T200 is rubbish please don't get one, Orange is briliant just the phone battery time is rubbish. OK I admit having triband was excellent when I went to South Africa with my Dad. The phone book is so slow loading up. (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T200 mobile phone doesn't have the BASIC feature of adding a NEW number from the phonelist - it is embedded somewhere in the Phonebook feature which is NOT DOCUMENTED! I had to ring the UK hotline (I am from Australia) as the Australian Sony Ericsson helpline closes at 6pm.
It constantly switches itself off on a charged battery, this started happening after 2 months!
If you don't turn the ALARM off before it automatically switches itself off, you will need to power-on... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T200 is a very poor and unreliable mobile phone. If you need an emergency back-up phone while yours is under repair, then it's fine as it is better than nothing.
The back-light is very bright. It sucks battery power and it's been in the shop 3x for reception and sound quality issues.
After it was finally repaired, it was lost. I paided too much for this phone. I dont recommend it and as a whole, I don't recommend Sony Ericsson products, especially if they are made... (read more)

I found this Sony Ericsson T200 phone to be very bad after a year of having it. I have replaced it three times. Once because the ringer stopped working, the second because it wouldnt let me call anyone and the third was when the menu wouldnt work. I have lost the phone many times because it is very small. The worst part is not being able to use it in basements or large buildings. (read more)

I got a Sony Ericsson T200 because I needed a cheap world phone for travel. This is a light but fairly solid little handset. I have fairly large hands, but the phone is easy to hold and use and I had no problems with the keypad. Sure, the keys are small and close together, but this is a TINY phone, after all, and they don't skimp much on the screen, which is a nice size. The screen and keypad are beautifully backlit.
The menu system is not intuitive, and there are no "soft" keys. For... (read more)

This is my 3rd Ericsson phone. For its price (NZ$300), it offers a good range of features and I find the interface is easy to use. On the downside, the ringtones and pictures are dumb - would be nice to be able to download new ones. Overall though, a good, solid phone that is affordable and functional. (read more)

Being a heavy SMS'er and a long term IT person...my main concern for any new phone is the how well the software has been designed...predictive text interface, intuitive menus etc, choice of different options and games.
the games are not too good, Tennis, Breakout clone, a couple of other logic type games and that was that. i can see the demand for more interactive and complex games in the future...
the text interface as with all the menus is a little slow. it's very easy to type too fast... (read more)

The firmware seems to be made by a blind sheep.
In keyboard locked mode any answered phonecall unlocks the keyboard again. The phonenumber preselect settings are impossible to change.
Phone has been replaced because of charging error but new model has the same problem. It keeps telling that it is charging an unknown battery, while it is the original sony one.
This phone is NOT user friendly. (read more)

This phone is very average and I feel that I have not received what I have payed for. While the phone is lightweight and somewhat stylish, it has toyish look to it: it's looks like a toy. I HATE the buttons, the up button is stiff and it requires slightly extra effort to press. When you press the buttons, it makes a relatively loud clicking noise. I suggest Sony Ericsson release a soft buttons for the phone. The games are very boring, and I as disappointed to find that didn't even have... (read more)

Once again, a phone manufacturer released a product that wasn't "finished", which is a shame for such a beauty. For example, I found impossible to edit wallpapers I received as text, even if I could watch them in my messages. I couldn't hide my number also. Or the progressive ring was so progressive that it went on answer phone before I could properly hear it... And a lots of little things I found quite annoying when accumulated... All in all I strongly advise you to invest a few more pounds... (read more)

I bought this phone to replace my, now slowly dying, Sony J5 (I've dropped it one too many times, including in a puddle - that was 7 months ago and it still works most of the time). Text Messaging is clearly one of the greatest phenomenon's in the digital era and the killer-app on mobile phones. So how did Sony-Ericsson manage to get it so wrong? Problem 1: T9 dictionary doesn't include punctuation it seems. To type the word: it's Normally you would press the following keys: 4, 8,... (read more)

This phone is the best I have ever had. It has five really good games, looks great, and the battery life lasts quite a long time. Altough the ringtones go slightly fast, there aren't any other bad things about it, as the ringtones are only a tiny part of the phone. All my friends are well jealous of me, and it's really good having an attatchable camera. Also, I have dropped this phone loads of times, being the clumsy person that I am, and it hasn't got a scratch! I'd recommend this phone... (read more)

I recently recieved a Sony Ericsson T200 as a free gift from my service provider for not switching to a competitor. My first impression upon seeing the phone was "WOW" (especially the amazing blue screen). But having used it for a few days now, I'm starting to find that it's not a very user-friendly phone. To begin with, the phone's menu system is very awkward to use. Many frequently used features are hidden deep within the menu system or require excessive key presses to access. ... (read more)

When I saw this Sony Ericsson T200 mobile phone first, it was love. Now that I'm using it (after Nokia 3510), it's a big disappointment. The ringtones are playing too fast (using "pauses" is not the solution, I think), and the built-in ringtones are also SH*T (the T20 was better...). I don't have huge fingers, but it's pretty hard to use this keyboard (too many keys for this small place...).

As an upgrade from the Nokia 3390, I am satisfied with the Sony Ericsson T200 mobile phone. Although it is considered a low-end handset, it offers many handy features such as Internet access, an included headset, and downloadable ringtones & pictures. The reception is quite good (better than my Nokia 3390) but the signal is not quite as strong as the 3390's. The main reason for upgrading to this phone was the long battery life, and after the poor life of the 3390's battery, this is a... (read more)

I'm not impressed with the Sony Ericsson T200 mobile phone! After switching over from a Nokia 3390, I found Sony Ericsson's menu system awkward and difficult. Everyone I call says the transmission is cutting in and out all the time or there is static in the background. Buttons have no finesse. They have a bad feel to them, make a clicking/rattling sound that is unpleasant. Looked all through the manual and other literature supplied for instructions on intially charging the battery but found... (read more)
