Hi all, I have seen over the past few weeks that there has been quite a few threads asking questions about the Sony Ericsson K700i Phone. I have started this thread where you can discuss/ask questions about the K700i rather than starting a new thread users can search this thread to see if anyone has asked/answered the question they were going to post. Use this thread to post links/information anything you think other Neowin members will find useful. Tell other Neowin members where they can get the best deal on this superb phone.

Here are some of my useful links :

Buy it online direct from Sony Ericsson. Sim Free. Thats probably the better option. That way you can use the online update service without the hastle of it not supporting 02 phones.

Sony Ericsson e-shop.

Something odd happened with my k700i this morning.

I switched it on, and I got a txt from my mate - instead of it usually just beeping and showing the little message icon (in the orange menu, by scrolling up twice on the desktop) - it actually showed a picture of my mate which I had assigned to his number, and underneath it said 'text message received from Gibbo, read now?' - its NEVER done this before!! Does this happen to anyone else?

Does anyone know what size the wallpaper needs to be for the K700i. Maybe people could make some wallpapers and post them in here. I would like to see what other people have as wallpapers on there phones.

Mobile9 Gallery has alot of WPs, Themes, Ringtones and some games for the K700i + other models. :)

An official Theme Maker from SE can be found here. It requires registration, but SE has a great developers resource database, so it's worth it.. (Y)

I made a theme for my phone some time ago, but I'd like to share it with you guys now... :happy: (just remember where you saw it first.. :shifty:)

What networks do people recommend.. i wouldn't mind going on O2 contract cos that has my kinda deal i want.. 500free txt's and 100mins for ?25 a month. But orange doesn't do something like that only 120mins and 250free txts for ?25 a month, which isn't as good... So ill probably go on O2 unless orange change there plan and prices.

Also do O2 phones come branded with the O2 logo on the bottom where it says Quickshare, i know orange ones do and i dont really want that i know on the o2 site it shows it without the o2 logo so i wil have to wait and se:p:p

Well, on the K700i you can use instant messenging, when u enter the url, put:

http://mob.e-messenger.net.

Its the mobile version of emessenger, which is web-based msn,

No, not a megapixel phone, it physically only has a VGA camera (0.3 mp), the reason u can take picture upto 1280X*** is because K700 expanded the picture digitally. So physically it's a 0.3 mp phone, but softwarely it's a 1.* mp phone.
