The Sony Ericsson T100 is the best of its kind. At the beginning of 3G phones T100 gave good performance and good sound quality. I purchased it in 2003. it is still working good on today 29-7-08. Its battery is never replaced till date. Its working fine. Even today i am using it.
Previously it i bought an Ericsson, it was also good phone, but due to its size i sold it out. After all two Giants ( Sony ) (Ericsson) made a tremendous thing.

The Sony Ericsson T100 phone gave me nothing but trouble over the year or so I used it.
The T100 worked fine for the first few weeks but then this phone started to show why it's so cheap first thing to go was the predictive text input in the SMS messaging this feature decided to disable its self and refused to work from there on in even when trying to enable it within the messaging section and the phone settings.
Another down side to the phone is it has limited memory and if you don't... (read more)

Overall this Sony Ericsson T100 is a great little mobile phone, its got a nice feeling to it in the hand, and its easy to use. I havn't had any problems with reception, get 3 bars minimum all the time (on O2 network). The only bad point i can find is the T9 text input is no where near as good as that on my old siemens C45, you cant turn it on and off whilst writing a text its also not as easy to work. So i'm having to text the old way which is a bit annoying. Other than that its been great.... (read more)

I bought this Sony Ericsson T100 mobile phone because it looks nice and feels solid. However, the poor reception really put me off. Where my Ericsson GH688 still registers 50% reception, the T100 registers no signal and cannot receive a call from my GH688 which is right next to it!! The phone gets very hot after just a few minutes of usage. (read more)

I've had the Sony Ericsson T100 mobile phone for about 5 months and so far i've only had a problem with the 2 key not responding. Turns out there was just dust on the contacts, so it's not a real problem. I'm pleased with it, because i'm living in the city so the signal problem (which is obvious) doesn't apply. Only when i went outside the city i found out that the antennae or something makes the signal weak. (The signal was better even on my old Ericsson T10s). Overall its a good phone and... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T100 mobile phone is small and cute and I dont want to part with it even with some problems. The set was going off by itself. So I got it changed. But the second set also had the same problem. When I contacted the service centre they upgraded the software and then changed the cell. Still the problem persists. The phone switches off by itself when it is out of range. Is it a problem with settings? I tried everything out. But I still have this problem. Can anybody help? (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T100 Mobile phone is small,cute and fits in my pocket. Overall a decent buy but for the sudden poweroff bug. I think this phone would have looked cool with a white light backlit display. Blue is not an elegant color and looks pale and downtrodden. Check for the Ring Volume, it could have had a higher ring volume. (read more)

Recently I bought this Mobile Phone (Sony Ericsson T 100) after lot of research by comparing technical specifications. This is a best phone on papers (in this price range) in terms of features, weight, talk time and stand by time. However it has very serious drawback that can't be seen from its specification. I came to know about this after some time. It has very poor voice quality and reception even with best service provider. Also its menu options are not user friendly as of Nokia. Its... (read more)

I have to admit I am happy with this T100. If you are simple person like me, who does not require webcam, camera, multimedia contents, etc. With your mobile phone, you will like its simplicity and practical use for your daily life. It's lightness and design make it very suitable for using in college and office. [choose more fancy hp if u are going to travel/party/date] (read more)

I have read your reviews on sonyericsson T100 and I really don't know what's wrong with your sets. Mine is working fine and I have never dealt with such issues. However, I am doing an honest review of my set and I am going to write the pros and cons of this set.
1. The battery: I must tell you that there are many ways how to correct the problem. But yes, battery is a issue with the model. It won't hold charge for even 10 hours. But hey, that means if you are punching... (read more)

best thing about this model is it's weight and size. i think it is cute and really catchy. with the price offered at the time you can not hope to get anything better. wap enabled and sleek phone is all that a person needs. it has a realls good network and the greatest thing "NO ANTENNA" that is a blessing hope nothin will prick me now when i drive. voice quality is good and so is the battery at least in me set. and moreover you can now get ringtones for it too. at phoneytunes and webonmove...

I got this phone recently. Here are a few good reasons:-
1. It is a light phone( weighs about 70g )& it fits into my shirt's pocket perfectly
2. Nice cool blue back-light & the keypad light is orange
3. It is good value for money
Even though this phone doesn't have a lot of features to play with, it is still serves the basic purpose of mobile communications which is good enough for most users.
Bottomline is, it's afforadable & inexpensive. (read more)

Overall the phone is a great value for money. Comparing with the other phones that are out there for less that Aus $300 it is a great phone. But with all good things there are catches. The phone's software is very unstable and the phone is very hard to use. It's reception is also very poor and lacks features. (read more)

Some people are so stuck up with established trends that they cannot get the hang of anything else. No its not me, its my friends instead . Many didnt like my departure from the old and trusted Nokia 5110 to the new Sony Ericsson T-100 and i didnt like their attitude.
Anyways, i agree with most reviews on this site when they say that this phone is cool in looks and funky in styling n yeah, a great phone for college goers. As for me i am a 22 year old college goer from Lucknow but many of my... (read more)

If, like me, you don't buy a phone for features, you choose something that turns heads then this phone is for you.
It looks wonderful, so slender and stylish, it really is the best looking phone on the market.
It doesn't do much, isn't Tri-Band, and is hard to use but who cares? This is a phone for those who place style over content...Americans need not apply. (read more)

I have the T100 for 1 day now(!) and it is just great phone. I like the design because it is uncommon. Most nokia models are boring and some ugly (I think the T300, T600, P800 are ugly too). Somehow this phone attracted me so much that I bought it. Very cool backlight and bight keys in the dark. There are some bad points. Keys are very small, but not too small. Ringtones play so fast that everything you edit yourself is also too fast. There are only a few good background pictures and the sms... (read more)

I live in Thailand, and I had the advantage to try all the telephones in the same price range as the Sonyericsson T100, including the Nokia 3310/3315, Alcatel OT525 and several others.
My experience was that the T100 was the most attractive mobile for the price, compared to the Nokia has the T100 a much better network reception, tested in the underground parking of my office building.
I agree that I had maybe expected a bit more features, especially in the sounds like... (read more)

Right, first of all if you ever look at pictures of the Sony Ericsson T100 phone on the internet it looks horrible, but in real life it looks wicked. The screen is a high resolution and has a blue back-light and the buttons glow orange. It picks up reception quite well and is easy to listen to another caller, there is a easy access volume control.
The phone is lacking in a few features like polyphonic ringtones, SMS spell checker but from the price it is quite justifiable. Its features are... (read more)
