Written on: 18/09/2008 by Mikele (1 review written)

I am looking for an update but having looked at all reasonably priced phones,less than £100, the only phone I can find is another Sony Erisson K800i which has far too many items on it than I require.
Go back to making simple everyday phones loud enough to hear and better signal reception!.
I think I will stick to the phone I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/10/2006 by Georgputhen (1 review written)

From the second day onwards I am facing problems in reception. In interiors the Sony Ericsson K700i phone has absolutely no reception and it can be used as an alarm or a device for setting reminders!!! I gave it for servicing but after-sales service was so poor that they couldn't fix the problem. It really pains when a phone worth so much starts giving trouble on the very next day after you purchase it. Please don't buy any Sony Ericsson models if your are in India, since their after-sales… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/09/2006 by inswitz (1 review written)

It is a useful mobile phone, and it's the third generation Sony I have had. However, as it went past it 12 month life, it started to effectively fall apart. The battery discharges alarmingly quick. OK, I could get a new one. The power connector socket is broken, and I get an intermittent ring tone when someone calls - I have not figured this one, but it could flip into silent mode. When the Sony Ericsson K700i charges, without any amendment to settings, it beeps, which is fine if you can charge… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2006 by skater123 (2 reviews written)

The Sony Ericsson K700i has a good quality camera and video, a great MP3 player, good games and it has loads of memory, so I have 12 songs on it with a bit of memory left. The screen is good, and it hasn't cracked. The features are excellent and the reception is great. I was in Wales high in the mountains and I still had a signal. The style is great, it looks good and it can fit in your pocket so easily because its small, and it has just enough weight on it so you know it is still there. Great… Read Full Review

If my Sony Ericsson K700i phone worked properly, I'd love it, but for now, I'm afraid that I'm a bit disappointed. Many of my friends have this phone, and have warned me about the joystick and guess what? Mine has now broken as well!
But overall, a great phone for the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2006 by derby fan 1 (1 review written)

I would definitely recommend the Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone. It is strong and reliable, and it has a loud MP3 player and radio. The reception is excellent. The camera is great, and the memory is also good. The battery life has been excellent for me. It does not come with a USB cable though, so you need to buy one.

Overall, for £90 in The Link, I would definitely buy one, so I give this phone a well deserved 10 out of 10… Read Full Review

I love the Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone. I love the bluetooth. I love the MP3 player and everything. It has a neat little camera. Orange offer a great service as well.

The joystick is a bit iffy, but then again, not every phone is perfect! Joints on flip phones get loose and break off. The Sony slides sometimes come off... See!

I recommend this phone to anyone who wants a nice little phone… Read Full Review

The Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone is great! It only cost me £80, and compared to other phones that I have paid £150+ for it is fab!

It has everything on it you could ask for - radio, MP3 player, bluetooth, video, camera, infrared, internet, games, downloads, as well as the usual calender and calculator etc. All are excellent quality, and the screen is crystal clear. I am always tempted to replace this and buy a new more expensive pink phone, but when I think about it, they just don't have… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2006 by krissyyy (1 review written)

I am a heavy phone user. You will never catch me without my phone. I so not recommend the Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone to anyone who uses their phone to the extent I do. Battery life is poor and only lasts one or two days. However, I have learnt to put it on charge every night. Pictures are blurry unless you stand extremely still. Memory is poor and unexpandable, but this may not effect you if you do not wish to use it as an MP3 player. Otherwise it seemed to be a reasonably good phone.

Written on: 19/12/2005 by SamuiRes (2 reviews written)

I have used the Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone for about 9 months now. It is beginning to look a bit jaded (the phone, not me), but still functions generally OK. Battery life is a problem, but I use it a lot and carry a spare battery. I am beginning to find charging a problem too, as the contact on the phone does not always connect properly, and the wire needs to be wiggled to start charging. Being a little deaf I found the volume poor and could not turn it up to suit my hearing. However the… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2005 by poopz (1 review written)

The Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone has many good points, but also a few bad points...

*Good points:*

Themes (downloadable)
Pretty loud tones (make sure the MP3 you download is of good quality and loud already)
Pretty large phone book memory
A lot of useful phone profiles
Alarm is very GOOD (wakes me up every morning). You can set MP3 files as alarm tones too
Calendar
To do list
Notes (can be sent as text messages to another Sony Ericsson phone through bluetooth if you don't have anything… Read Full Review
