Sony Ericsson w810i – Airtel Mobile Office – A review.

Sony Ericsson w810i – Airtel Mobile Office – A review 11:30

Recently I bought a Sony Ericsson w810i mobile. Till then I was using Nokia 1100. I never felt to go for a high end model. Recently Airtel introduced Mobile Office scheme and I thought of utilising this feature.

Airtel Mobile Office provide various schemes under this name. I choose 30 days unlimited internet access for Rs. 375/-. This is in Chennai and I don’t know about the price in other cities. I think it is much cheaper in Kerala. One wonderful thing about this scheme is that roaming is free of charge. While roaming you can access unlimited internet without paying any roaming charges. I had wonderful experience in Cochin. It is best to use this scheme in Airtel EDGE enabled networks. To utilise this technology an EDGE enabled mobile phone is necessary. That is why I choose Sony Ericsson w810i.

I bought w810i for Rs. 14400/-. I thought it was worth spending that much because of the cool features it has other than normal mobile features.

  • Music only mode allows you to use your device as music player.
  • Wonderful music player which plays almost all formats.
  • Built-in FM radio. Earphone should be plugged in inorder to use this feature.
  • 512 MB memory stick that comes with the mobile is enough to store some of your recent hits and some games and cool applications.
  • Lots of Java applications can run on this mobile.
  • EDGE enabled for high speed data transfer.
  • Bluetooth
  • Infra-red.
  • Plenty of cool applications
  • Light weighted.

What else can you ask from a small mobile phone?

I haven’t used any other high end mobile phones. So I can’t make a comparison here. Altogether I am satisfied with the performance and features of this mobile.

Coming back to Airtel Mobile Office, I had some initial issues getting connected to the internet. There is a Rs. 375/- recharge especially for Mobile Office. Once this is done, customer will receive a confirmation message from Airtel within 24 hours saying that the connection got activated. Followed by setting will be sent which is to be installed. Now you have to restart the phone to start using GPRS connection. I was not aware of this restart thing and hence I was not able to connect initially. I had to take the phone to nearby Airtel center where they fixed the issue by just restarting the mobile.

After getting this issues fixed, I was on internet always. Even I can connect this mobile phone to my laptop and browse from it. That is another article. I installed some cool Java applications that helps me to keep connected to the internet.

  • Opera Mini – Wonderful browser. I wonder how could they put everything in KBs.
  • GoTalkMobile – For instant messaging – Google Talk.
  • EQO Mobile – For instant messaging – Supports multiple protocol – Yahoo, Gtalk, etc.
  • jmIrc – Cool irc client.
  • MidpSSH – Another wonderful telnet/ssh client. I couldn’t believe when I remotely logged into grex.org.
  • flurry – To send photos as e-mail.

Most of these applications are available from http://getjar.com.

Life is much better!

  17. Hi!
    Are you really sure that SE K810i comes EDGE enabled?
    cause where ever i had gone, its been stated that this phone does not have EDGE. I now have this phone.

  18. Hi guys why are wasting money on MO use free internet via teashark.Download it on mobile if it is red then fine but if it is blue then download it in laptop then insert memory stick in laptop and copy paste in other in memory stick .Then for avoiding initializing problem each time install it and replace previous one and while replacing type no to keep existing data.Then activate airtel live by sending message LIVE(SPACE)ACTIVE to 511 and for setting LIVE to 52567 or 543210 and MO setting send MO to any of these two numbers.
    Then go to setting -connectivity -setting for java in w810i and click on airtel live.And teashark is like opera mini but free I am typing this from my w810i and via teashark.
    Cheers.
