Jam to your favorite tunes with the included stereo headset.
The W600's swiveling design means that the keypad is only revealed when you need it. The phone's large 176 x 220 display supports a whopping 262,000 colors--great for displaying color-rich photos taken on the W600's 1.3-megapixel camera, which is housed on the rear of the device. Most of the phone's functions can be controlled via a five-way control pad just below the display, but there are also extra buttons provided above the screen for landscape-mode gaming. Shortcut buttons are provided for Walkman and mobile Web functions as well. The phone's antenna is contained in a loop-style housing on top of the phone. There's also a port for the phone's included stereo headset. USB and infrared data ports are provided, and the phone supports USB mass storage so you can simply plug the phone into your computer and drag and drop files into the phone's memory. To top it all off, you can swap faceplates to make the W600 suit your style.

Calling Features
The W600's phone book can hold up to 1,000 contacts with multiple entries per contact. A call list remembers your most recent missed, received, and dialed calls. The phone's voice activated dialing makes calling up to 30 of your contacts as easy as saying their names, while the built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Polyphonic ringtones are included and there's even a bundled application that lets you mix your own ringtones. Picture caller ID lets you assign a photo to specific callers, and a ringer ID lets you assign ringtones to callers. For those times you want to keep things discreet, there's a vibrate ringer mode. And because the W600 is Bluetooth-enabled, you can use a variety of headsets and hands-free kits for total wireless freedom when you're on the go.

Messaging, Internet, and Tools
If you're looking for a mobile productivity partner, the W600 has you covered. Support is built in for sending and receiving pictures, text, graphics, sound and video via SMS or MMS messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still and video camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging possibilities. Instant messaging is also supported, and the phone ships with a built-in e-mail client with support for POP3, IMAP4 and SMTP protocols (Cingular messaging charges apply). There's also a built-in Web browser for MEdia downloads and mobile Web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send e-mails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile e-mail and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet is easy with the W600, as it supports the GPRS protocol, as well as the new, high-speed EDGE data protocol. When used with a Cingular data plan and the phone's Bluetooth or USB data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs. Enjoy broadband speeds in EDGE-enabled service areas.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the W600, including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a calendar, and an alarm clock. Use the W600's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with a Bluetooth accessory or connect to a computer or handheld device to exchange and synchronize data. The phone also supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard. This means the phone can be used with the included Sony Ericsson Sync Station software, which lets you synchronize your Microsoft Outlook calendar, contacts, notes and tasks with your W600.

Enjoy your games in widescreen mode.
Imaging and Entertainment
The W600 is a Walkman phone, and that means it offers a great mobile music experience. The phone's 256 MB of built-in flash memory can hold your favorite tunes in MP3 or AAC format. An included stereo headset combines with Digital Mega Bass and stereo widening to enhance your listening experience. There's even an FM radio for catching the big game or your favorite stations.

And what about gaming? This phone is definitely geared for the mobile fun fanatic, as it supports widescreen and 3-D games. The W600 comes preloaded with several games, and more are downloadable from both Sony Ericsson and Cingular's MEdia service.

As mentioned, the W600 also features a powerful 1.3-megapixel camera and an LED flash. The camera also supports up to one minute of video capture.

sony ericsson W600 review

updated note: phone has been sent back to the manufacturer twice now for bluetooth problems. upon thinking about this phone some more, i'd say the software is buggy for a lot of people. please take this into consideration before buying.

i bought this phone in early december for the oh-so-NOT-low price of $390 from i was (am) only about seven months into my two-year contract, so yes, i paid full price. :eek:

in my past, i've owned most of the major brands of phones (motorola, nokia, samsung, sony ericsson, sharp) and right before i got this phone, i was a happy motorola V551 owner. initially, i had wanted the sony ericsson W800, but without the 850mhz band and being a cingular customer, i wasn't going to risk it.

in short, i love this phone. to date, it's the best phone i've owned. i don't think it's worth the $390 i paid for it, but that's really my fault. i'm impatient and wanted this phone reeeeeally bad and didn't want to wait until it dropped in price (if it ever will). i am going to cover a few of the major components to this phone and then list some pros and cons. mine is a cingular-branded phone, so keep that in mind when i talk about certain features.

camera: i've had a few camera phones before this one. i'll preface this section by saying what 100s of others have said: it's a camera PHONE. it's not going to have the quality to make even a decent 4X6 print. what it IS good for are those moments where you're thinking, "oh! i wish i had a camera right now!". my last phone was a VGA camera and i thought by getting a phone with a 1.3 MP camera, it'd be a noticable difference. it isn't really.

Almost a month since I have been a proud owner of this phone. I think it's a mix of style and good sound quality. I bought this phone for around $350 (coz mine is a unlocked version). Talking about Pros and cons. I love the design. I think it's pretty different and compact. The battery back up is amazing, even with the Walkman Switched On (It allows me to play music for 10 hours of music play with regular phone usage = 2 days battery). You don't have to open the phone again and again to access various functions. All functions can be accessed through the buttons on the main face itself. Voice clarity on a call is superb and so is the display (clear and sharp). The flash/torch light is powerful enough to help you replace your car's tire on a highway, still compact enough to fit in our pocket. Walkman gives amazing sound clarity even at full volume and full BASS (it gonna blow your ears). It has the following EQ Presets:

1. Normal,

2. Bass,

3. Mega Bass,

4. Voice,

5. Treble boost

6. Manual (5 Bands).

It has Stereo Widening (effective if u using high quality Mp3). Backlight is Orange. It has detachable faces so that you can change it as per your mood (Orange, White and Blue) Locking and unlocking the keypad is very easy. It has a dedicated switch like key on its left for the same. Profiles can be changed as per the environment pressing the shutdown button (located at top left) or you can put the phone directly on Silent Mode using the # key (which enables the vibration automatically - also available in the shutdown menu). All the profiles are appropriate to the environment.

Wow, I was impressed as soon as started trying out the features. The sound on the mp3 player is excellent, full range of bass that is deep and crisp highs. The earphones are very impressive as well. They are the plug type so when you put them in you can't hear anything around you even if you don't have the mp3 player playing. The radio worked better than expected, especially after reading the reviews about it not working very well. I live in Indianapolis and can pick up most of the major stations while at work, at home, or on my bicycle. The whole way home from the Cingular store I was transfixed with all of the little gadgets the phone had, the digital camera, the video capture, the radio, the mp3 player, the media net, the samples from MobiTV, and on and on. I couldn't wait to get home and start transferring music to the phone.

Installed the software which was easy enough, hooked up the USB connection (which also acts as charger) transferred about 5 songs tested them out to see how they worked, no problem.

So decided to transfer some more songs and then .........BAM!!!!!! The "WHITE SCREEN OF DEATH". For those of you who don't know what that is, it happens when the hone locks up and nothing can be done to fix it. There is no hard reset or soft reset for the phone (I already checked with SonyEriccson technical support). At this point your phone is useless (yes, there are some people out there who have gotten lucky and got their phone to unlock, but it is just that luck, not a proven method to fix this problem).

After searching all of the support forms, it seems that this is a known problem caused by some bad firmware that to this point SonyErricson has been unwilling to address. So I then called SonyEriccson technical support.
