Thought it was good, but in the end, big disappointment.

Hi, i bought this phone in 2005 at Christmas. At first i thought the phone was great like with all the excellent features. However after using it for half a year, it crashed with the blank white screen. The phone wouldnt come on. So i thought it could be fixed. However after calling Sony Ericsson for technical support, they said it was a common problem in the W600 series. But if people are using it only for simple calling and answering then i guess its okay. And the white screen problem wont appear. I think my phone messed up mainly because of the connection between computer and phone. Like transferring songs and pictures. For some reason the phone resets itself when you transfer songs. Its pretty scary because sometimes it took quite a time to get phone working again. It will just freeze there. So i think people shouldnt rely too much on the MP3 player, but rather buy this phone for its looks and battery life. Because lately new phones are usually have a really short battery life. You can still use the functions but i suggest buying an actually MP3 player is more safe. Also Sony ericsson phones are good but they have a very common error which is phones freezing. So people should think about using Nokias, they are more stable.
