    Thanks, but I think my mother is worth a new one lol.

    Thng about the k800 is the camera. I have had basically all the sonyerricsson camera phones (currently on a c905) and by far and away the best for quick point and click pics is the k800. It takes a pic i practically any condition. for instance, my c905 takes food pics, but you have to make sure all the settings are right fcor the conditions. the k800 would just take a good pic straight away. good choice.

    For me its about repairs, we get more K800's for repairs than any other SE handset, we do repair lots of others though, like the C905 notorious ribbon problem, Earpiece problem, etc... However with the K800 we get more in for things like putting it on charge and the next day it just has the red blinking led and the phone wont turn on... Its because of that we have never sold the K800 to any of our customers, however we have sold a lot of K770's and non have ever come back...

    I do agree the K800 camera really was good and I think thats what kicked off the SE Cybershot range but it is old now and it does have quite a few other issues, keypad, joystick, white screen of death, software, etc

    The K770 isnt that much more than the older K800 it has some good features too like Skype and does have the same 3.2MP camera, have a look at your local Argos [url]www.argos.co.uk[/url] to see if they have them in stock on Virgin mobile, they are just £64.99

    or marshallward.co.uk/rf/…952 try Voucher Code: ZQ886 for £30 off... The phone is £79.00 - £30 = £49... Remember the codes dont always work for everyone though, they normally charge you the full price then refund the £30

    Thanks for the info, I think I'm going to go for a pink 770 as I know my mum would like that (you know what us girls are like!). Is it easy enough (and cheap enough) to get the phone unlocked so she can use her 02 card please? Play have a pink 770 for £74.99 on Vodafone.

    Its simple enough to have it unlocked, from most decent shops, they are usually DB2020 CID53 and it tends to be pretty much the same procedure for unlocking as the newer K800's anyway... Try your local shops, dont pay more than £10 though, if you get stuck let me know, will unlock and debrand it for you

    Ok, do you know when you was planning on ordering??? We have ordered some of these from our suppliers and are waiting for them, if you did want one £74.99 is way cheaper than what we sell them for, however I could unlock one of them and give it to you for that price if you like, im just not sure when they will arrive, they are supposed to be due tommorow...

    How do, sorry for butting in on this post again. You mention the ribon prob with the c905, I have an old one which is doing this, is it easy to fix? could i do it myself or is it a send a way job? Cheers for any help!

    Its covered by the warranty, so you should be able to get it done free from any authorised Sony Ericsson, repair centre, try some of the larger CPW stores, they should be able to do it for you or at least point you in the right direction to your nearest service centre...

    The part itself is quite cheap, however its a bit of a fiddly job to do, so I wouldnt recommend it if you havent taken this phone apart before...

    I have a guide for the C905 Dissassembly let me know if you need it, I dont know if you can attach it on here...

    Thanks for the offer - it's actually my mum's other half that's buying it and I'd already sent him the link and it's on order with Play now. Really grateful for all your help and advice though, will provide rep!
