3 years of impeccable service

from Amazon
After 3 years of outstanding service, I'm sorry to have to let my phone go.

After 3 years of outstanding service, I'm sorry to have to let my phone go. It needs a new battery, so it's more cost efficient to buy a new phone instead of a new battery since the joystick is starting to not respond when pressed to the down position. Overall this phone is beautiful, durable, and easy to use. The 2 main draw backs are that it doesn't have speakerphone and it is impossible to see the screen in sunlight. I'm on to a beautiful blue motorizr z3. Farewell my faithful SE T610! Less

Worse Phone Ever

This is my first Sony Ericsson phone and I hate it.

This is my first Sony Ericsson phone and I hate it. I had previously owned an Ericsson phone and lets just say the only reason why I replaced it was because I had no other choice or I would've kept using it. What did Sony do??? Pros: Nice sleek style phone, very compact and sturdy. I've dropped it a couple of times, but nothing has broken or dislodged. Good menu options, games and easy to use applications. Good joystick design very user friendly and convenient and I think with care will last a long time. Cons: Bad photo quality, bad reception and this is compared to other phones of different cellphone companies, other phones that Fido carries and even compared to other Sony Ericsson phones! I've lost reception where other Sony Ericssons still worked! Software problem, since owning the phone I've had to send it in for repairs due to software problem. It creates a really bad high pitched squeal while you're on the phone. They more or less fixed the problem, but from time to time I still get the squeal. Buttons are sometimes too sensitive, sending my text msgs before I'm done typing them and sometimes irresponsive causing me to stand there clicking on something for a long time. Recommendation: Don't buy this phone. It's a really nice looking phone, but its flaws are not worth the buy. I mean I get poor reception at home and isn't that the whole point of a phone for convenience? Less

BAD RECEPTION

I have had this phone for two years. I have not had the toggle problems that others have had but I have had terrible reception. I cannot get signals in places like Homedepot or Walmart and no reception in my basement suite. I am not sure if its the Fido towers or the phone but I have had many people t...More
I have had this phone for two years. I have not had the toggle problems that others have had but I have had terrible reception. I cannot get signals in places like Homedepot or Walmart and no reception in my basement suite. I am not sure if its the Fido towers or the phone but I have had many people tell me to toss the phone. Bad press for Fido and Sony. I would not recommend either product. Less

The worst phone that I had ever bought

from Amazon
The phone is slow, and the keybooard is too responsive. Sometimes I press one number and it is dialed twice. When I answer calls usually they are put on hold. I wont buy any other sony ericsson product ever. At least mobile phones. Also, sometimes the home charger does not charge my mobile. It is really bad.

Bad phone

from Amazon
This phone is fine but the joystick will break and you will not be able to use the phone.

50-50

Likes: Hi-quality sound. Bluetooth is very good. Sending SMS has never been that quick! Clear voices when calling. dislikes: The joystick sometimes experience troubles. say, when i move the joystick downwards, it won't respond. but if i move it upwards, it responds.

a great phone if it wasn't for the weak-link joystick

from Amazon
This was my second Sony-Ericsson phone (the first was a T68i), and the fatal flaw in both phones was poor joystick design.

This was my second Sony-Ericsson phone (the first was a T68i), and the fatal flaw in both phones was poor joystick design. In both cases, after about a year and a half of light to normal use, the joystick started to work erratically. Movement either did not register, or registered as 'Enter' rather than movement. Since you cannot do anything on this phone without using the joystick, it becomes difficult to perform basic actions, such as locating and calling a contact. It also means that I frequently make and have to quickly cancel multiple accidental calls due to unintended input before I make it to the intended number in the contact list. I will never again purchase a cell phone that has a joystick. Other than this one (very major) problem, this phone has served me well. Bluetooth synchronization is handled flawlessly by iSync on my Mac (at least for contact information; I never tried the calendar), and I was also able to used the phone as a modem, connecting my Powerbook to the internet wherever I had cell service. The form factor is just about perfect; the phone is unobtrusive in a pocket, and it is easy to hold. The side volume buttons are a great touch. I give it three stars because it was exactly what I wanted and worked well until the joystick started malfunctioning. Less

A decent phone with faults

I've had the T610 for 2 yrs now (T-Mobile). Pros: The phone is compact well built and has served me well for 2+ yrs. Battery life is decent. By and large, I like the user interface as well.

I've had the T610 for 2 yrs now (T-Mobile). Pros: The phone is compact well built and has served me well for 2+ yrs. Battery life is decent. By and large, I like the user interface as well. Bluetooth has been reliable. Cons: Signal reception is weak although to be fair one can't entirely fault the handset. Volume level for rings and voice is low as well. Since the past 8 months, the joystick has started flaking out; it responds only to upward movement! Less

Small but Slow....

from Amazon
This Phone Is Great But only one problem is that this phone goes slow sometimes when you just turned it on but other than that this phone is fit for anyone and I got a logictech HS02 you'll like both..
