yes,it has 3.5mm jack which you can plug & play into any compatible speaker with.
instant messaging is you can send or receive msg on the go.

i got the phone just for less than 2 months and i always carrying it very carefully , ensure that it is clean and put the w995 in a pocket without even together with a syilings or paper. but the wordings of 8.1 megapixel and the SE logo in front was both came out. that was a very bad printing. but overall i like the phone, bcos it responds faster far faster than my Aino (my second phone). but in comparing the headphone (aino and w995) ....Aino is better.

Sorry to correct the review, but i have W995, and it has the smile-shutter capability, and facebook app. If yours didn't, try to update your software via update service.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2009i've had a W995 for 2 months and the sony ericsson logo has... moresounds fishy. u seem to b having problems which re trivial...Or did u really hav these??
I used 2 SE phones so far, and none of them had their logos or whatsoever worn off. ya there r scraches. But performance wise, i hav never had complaints.
So please, stop writing imaginary problems here. Or if u still cant help it, b more creative!!!

Im having trouble using the Facebook for Sony Ericsson application in the messages file. Is there known problems with this or is there something that can be done about it??

i've had a W995 for 2 months and the sony ericsson logo has worn off (even tho i keep it in a pocket seperate from anything else) and the walkman (W) has fell off from just below the screen because it was only stuck on, that seems cheapish to me for a phone that retails for so much money, and the trademark names are wearing off the battery cover as well, like the 8.1megapixel has almost worn off, i'm not impressed with that side of it, but as a whole the phone is good......oh i forgot, the chrome stand on the back has broken, and i've only used it once!

the camera is avg. close up pics with good lighting is good but it isnt that good for big pics or at night. other wise a pretty general phone with good features. the voice changer is hilarious.
