Question about Sony Ericsson W800i Cellular Phone
I bouth the phone used and had it unlocked. Can I use it as a pre paid with metro pcs and also where can I pruchase the accessories that come with the phone if I had purchased it new.
Metro PCS just as Sprint PCS does not use the same GSM network as AT&T or Verizon Wireless.
PCS is a completely separate wireless system. The phone MUST be compatible with the PCS communication platform to work properly, in other words it must be able to connect at the proper frequency bandwidth that PCS connects to. GSM uses the 900Mhz frequency range and PCS uses the newer 1.9Ghz.
The 800i does not support the PCS frequency so most likely you will not be able to use it with a prepaid Metro PCS SIM card. There is only T-Mobile prepaid that you can use with the available frequency connections.
As for accessories, there are several places to find adapters, the Sony Ericsson website still carries most components although they a bit more expensive, you are getting genuine Sony hardware. The download software suite can be obtained for free from the Sony website. The software makes transferring files from your PC to phone easier and allows you to change the sampling rate for MP3 files so that you can store more music for your listening pleasure.
I have a similar model Sony phone the W600i and have yet to have a problem with it (2.75 years old). The memory storage is only 256MB, however with reducing the music sampling rate to 64kb from 192kb it allows me to store around 8 hours of music, enough to fly to Europe or South America. The camera has a lot of features found in regular digital cameras like:

Hope this helps you out.
