This phone is inexpensive, but not cheap. It has a number of really good features for it's price point. In fact, you may be hard pressed to find a phone with better features at this price.
At the most basic level, this phone offers really good call quality. In addition, it features all the basic address book and other application features you would expect from a modern cell phone.
Where this phone really shines is in it's ability to function as a full fledged MP3 player. The W300i will allow you to store a large number of songs on it, and is even expandable via Memory Stick Micro media.
The only negative aspect about this phone really, is it's interface. Some people may not like how the buttons are placed and feel. Though for most of us, that wont be an issue. All in all, this is really a great phone.
When I originally bought the Sony Ericsson W300i Walkman, I bought a re-furbished phone with a new contract, so it cost me nothing. For one year, it was a good phone. Then, the screen died. I looked all over to find a replacement phone that would not cost more than switching cell phones and plans again. Most retail prices were upwards of $200-$300 -- to replace a phone I got for free! So a friend of mine told me about putting the phone chip into a Go Phone and it would work fine. For $50, I tried it. It was not the same. Phone quality was very poor, features were not accessed the same way. It seemed like every button I pushed on the Go phone took me to the internet -- something which DID NOT interest me. I knew this phone and I were not going to survive a year until the end of my contract. So I went to eBay -- why I didn't think of it before, I don't know -- I typed in my phone type, the Sony Ericsson W300i Walkman -- and found a buy-it-now option for $50. I received a Cingular phone, instead of my original ATT, so there were some minor adjustments, but a vast improvement over my broken phone and the Go Phone. I learned a lot from this experience -- the next time my phone dies, I will replace it via eBay!
This is the best phone i've ever had!
My original was dropped too many times at work and the speaker phone didn't work
well any more So thats why i bought another.
However it was locked to cingular network - easy to unlock just call your service provider and ask for network unlock code.
I upgraded to a 4G mem stick. (load the mp3's)
ease of use
I find this phone to be well made, unlike the sony ericson 350. The casing is durably made, and the functionality is simplified. It has alot of features such as sony walkman, and a music dj feature which allows you to make your own tunes, and set them as your ringtone. For a music lover such as myself, you can't go wrong with this phone. If you do run across a locked version of this phone, it is as simple as typing, 1 2 3 4, and then your phone is unlocked. The speakerphone has excellent volume, as does the ringer. This phone even has calculator, and a calender which you can even set to remind of certain events! You can even set it to wake you up for work in the morning! This phone is loaded with several features!
Other than pictures and sounds that Sony notoriously brands into their phones that can't be removed, we love Sony cell phones. This little phone, like our other Sony phones, are reliable, durable and get pretty dang good reception. The software is easy to manuever and the sound is really good on Sony phones. The screen time-out is not adjustable on this phone, but it's the only failing I can find with this phone.
