Despite its physical beauty, my love affair with this phone ended quickly. The software seems almost willfully frustrating, with nothing where you expect it to be and few options to customise (good example - if look up a name in your phone book, you can't directly text to that number!) The joystick control is used to bring the phone out of sleep mode, but moving it activates shortcuts (such as WAP) when you didn't want to.
Sony have improved on most of these annoyances with their later... (read more)

For the usual price, Sony Ericsson T610 is a good phone with some nice features, but the camera isn't that good. You can barely make something out because of the quality, and it's not even VGA. Nonetheless, it's a good valued phone. You might have difficulties with the joystick after a couple of months of using it. (read more)

I found that the Sony Ericsson T610 was a very good phone, however I had problems with mine before and had to get it replaced. It wasn't a big deal, my sound just gave up. Overall, if your not fussed about features, then this is an ideal phone for you. (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T610 is a good, average mobile phone with a nice design. It hasn't gone wrong once yet. The only thing was that reception wasn't brilliant, but it was good enough. I'm sticking to Sony Ericsson's because of this phone, so I like it a lot, but it's getting old now, so it is time for an upgrade. (read more)

Maybe it's time that I bought a new mobile phone! I've had the Sony Ericsson T610 since November 2004, and for the last 5 months i.e. out of warranty, I have been unable to send picture messages, access WAP or use some of the other connectivity features. This is despite fairly constant re-programming. In its time this phone was a definite market leader, and I suppose I still keep it as my personal phone out of a sense of having got used to it, and after all it makes and receives phone calls...

When you first turn the Sony Ericsson T610 mobile phone on, you can't get to the messaging section for about ten seconds. If you press the buttons loads of times, it remembers every move, so when it wakes up it will go through each of those presses first!! Once on though, it is fine, and the menu is good. However, if you have gone down too far and want to scroll up again using the joystick, it can be very fiddly, and will select the thing you don't want. In bright sunlight you can't see... (read more)

I struggle to find anything to recommend this phone. It hasn't suffered from any SIM card troubles, as other users have reported, but I would echo everything else negative that they have already said. It is poor design personified. (read more)

This phone is great to be precise, it's got a great screen and loads of great options. Ringtones, pics and themes are all great. The camera is fantastic, my first and best! I love the centre control- a joystick, it means I can easily navigate through the menu. Everything is easy to access and it has great memory. There are loads of shortcuts, to name a few:
Pushing the joystick left- new text
Pushing the joystick down- numbers
Pushing the joystick up- internet
Camera icon on side- camera (read more)

I was an avid Nokia user. And for some unknown reason, I decided to get the Sony Ericsson T610 as my upgrade. It was the worst mistake that I made. Unfortunately, I only discovered this after the 7 day exchange period had run out. The Volume is too quiet, the whole phone seizes up for no reason and you end up having to turn it off. And as for the tiny control button, it is so hard to use sometimes. It skips the icon that I want to use. Also the whole phone is very slow on a whole. Whenever... (read more)

I am currently on my 6th T610 Handset. It cannot get a signal in most of my house but can get a signal under some tunnels.
Quite often I will call someone when I put the handset in my pocket.
The camera is OK for little pics.
The phone was free hence the score for value for money. (read more)

Sony Ericsson T610: I got my T610 for £90 with £11 free credit from Carphone wharehouse. The phone is quite good looking and isn't a "brick", very light infact. The phone is quite slow when switching between menus and sometimes your signal disappears for no reason. Sony Ericsson's seem to suffer from this defect though, my old T68i became totally U/S after about a month.
The T610 does have its good points and I love it very much. For a start it has Bluetooth, GPRS, WAP, a camera and an email... (read more)

The T610 should be redisignated the Sony Ericsson P.O.S!
Mine was an upgrade having been an avid Nokia user for quite a few years. The menu control structure is completely NON intuitive - everything takes three times longer to do with this phone compared to my old Nokia.
The phone would be usable by a Hobbit. The buttons are tiny and unpositive to use - you wonder if button presses actually register.
Operation of the device became unreliable after a few weeks moderate use.
Very Very... (read more)

When I first got the T610 phone just over a year ago I absolutely loved it. Was a massive improvement on Sony J70. It is simple to use via central joystick and picture menus similar in style to Windows/Palm OS. The camera was pretty decent at the time, but technology in this area is improving all the time so was quickly superceded. I find the bluetooth incredibly useful, means I can keep phone on me at all times, use it as a diary and synch it with computer and PDA (via computer won't... (read more)

Got the T610 as an upgrade to a 8310. It's certainly a smart phone with bags of functionality. The trouble is that it's more difficult to do the simple things (lookup/edit a number or even make a call for that matter!) than most Nokias. These icon driven menu systems will surely be ditched once the gimmick factor has gone. If you want all singing all dancing stuff then this may be the phone for you. If you want a phone to primarily make and receive calls then don't buy one of these. After 3... (read more)

This really is the worse phone that I have ever owned. I will elaborate on the bad points:
The ring volume is too quiet. Although there is a vibro function, this doesn't always seem to work. I've had many occasions where the phone has been in my pocket and I've missed calls as I didn't know the phone was ringing.
The menu is fiddly to use. There is a shortcuts section but I rarely use it as it takes several movements to get to it. 1) Press joystick in front screen, 2) Move joystick... (read more)

The Sony Ericsson T610 is really easy to use. Or maybe they all are nowadays? I remember when the only simple ones were Nokia. But this is very nearly as easy as a Nokia, except for the fact that the key to make a space in a text is the hash key not the zero, so the first few messages I sent had + signs between each word.
One fun thing that I really enjoy is that I can assign pictures and ring tones to my contacts. So when my son rings me a photo of him flashes up and it plays a Blink182... (read more)
