“The W205 is perfect for those who love portable music but have never had the Walkman™ phone experience.” said Timo Maassmann, Marketing business manager at Sony Ericsson. “The W205 is a stylish slider phone allowing you to enjoy your music wherever you are – whether it’s on the bus, at college or chilling in the park. You can also share more than music with the 1.3 megapixel camera. Capture the action in stills or video and send them to friends via MMS or via Bluetooth™. The multiple phonebook function is an added bonus - share your phone with your family but keep your contacts separate from theirs.”

Fill it with pop and make it rock with the following features:

    * Enjoy your music with the Walkman™ experience
    * FM radio – catch up with the latest news and views
    * TrackID™ - name that tune at a press of a button
    * 1.3 megapixel camera – capture your favourite moments on film
    * Bluetooth™ - share your favourite songs, pictures  and video clips, or connect to a wireless headset
    * Multiple phone books – keep your contacts in order if someone needs to borrow your phone

I got this phone the last month... it is very slow.. it doesn't have zoom for pictures, walkman it's pretty simple, doesn't have an equalizer, videos play bad and it doesn't have the option for fullscreen, what else???? the worst: I have 850 songs in my mem card, on the older models you can type a key and go to the file that starts with that letter (like your contacts) but you can't do that with this phone... f*** w205!!! waiting to get the money to buy a new one....

This thing couldn't be harder to text on if you were wearing mittens. when trying to type a two letter word and the wrong one comes up at first, instead of suggesting other two letter words you might want to try containing those letters it offers you four letter, then seven letter, then double hyphenated words, about 15 of them (some of which aren't even real up words) before it will offer you the next two letter word. All in all you can't really text on this phone unless you turn predictive text off. Nonsense.

In this phone there is nothing special, it looks attractive but works 7% only, there is no mp3, no zoom for video, for the camera there is no clear picture, with the work if 1 gb memory card it takes 25-60 seconds to open a song, it was the worse phn of all i have used in my life, there is no spring system for slide, it doesn't work.

This is fone is ok, if you need to speak only a few times a day, the battery backup is bad when it comes to music as well, messaging is sick :sad:, only the sound quality is good, that too the headphones wobble in the slot. I don't know why i got the fone in the first place. I have another sony fone, which is amazingly good. that's why this one bad :sad:

I had been through 4 of these phones, because only after the 4th did I realise that plugging it into a MAC crashes the whole system! and so on my latest one, there is no way that I can save a playlist... why is the playlist option defunct?
