    I'm eagerly awaiting a phonecall from my local Mobile Supplier to tell me mine has turned up, have been scanning for some reviews and just wondered what you guys and girls think of it and is it really the boom diddy that the mags say it is ?

    It is indeed, best phone I've ever had, and I've been through many, many, many phones.

    I might be getting an NEC N500 soon as well :).

    I have to admit Im loving mine after I was fed up with my K700i. I've had T68i, T610, T630, K700i and this is the best leap in quality for me so far!

    I read in a review somewhere that you can't run a repeat on items in your calendar, is that true.

    How easy is it to download the music ?

    Thx for the reply by the way :thumbsup:

    I've had mine for a week & love it.

    Haven't had a chance really get into all of the features yet but ripping albums is a piece of cake.

    My only annoyance is that you can use sonicstage or atracs - must be mp3's which is a real bummer - I'm hoping an update in the future will change this - just so I can use one memory stick for both psp & phone & have one 'sony' library of music.

    Picked mine up on Friday, got a cracking deal (PM me if you want shop details), they gave me £50 to pay off my old tariff and I got the phone for nothing.

    I strayed from Nokia once with an earlier version of the Samsung SGH-e315, hated the phone and vowed to never leave nokia again and then along came W800i.

    I love it, music transfer whether from cd's or from my library on the P.C is so simple. Creating playlists is easy, the camera is top. Logistically it is very good.

    The only niggle and it's a very small niggle is there is no repeat on the Calendar. Apart from that it's great. :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    !00% recommend.
