Hi Stacey,...I exactly did what u just updated...But my battery is coming only for max 26-27 hrs. All the other features are excellent and i'm happy with that. I think i've take my mobile to service center within a month of purchase...That's too bad.
Everyone is saying "i'm charging my battery for every 4th or 5th day" but i hardly listen to music or take pictures
Hey how is the number pad for texting i heard it gets annoying pushing those little things?
And how much would this phone go for in Canada?
hey gus plz tell me if u use a 1gb memory stick do u face any problem, coz i got one card corrupted and when i replaced it the new one is also not functioning well, can anyone suggest a solution or atleast diagnose the problem
can anyone explain me FLASHING BIOS. is it recommended if yes then which bios, should i update my phone using update service of the phone, does it help.
PLZ GIVE REPLY
yes the phone has night mode still the picture quality is not super fine.
and for imaaz the mobile sounds really good and if u can buy walkman earphones its awsome.
@ Nata S
1. no u cant put passwords for the files
2. its always recommended to charge any appliance using battery when it discharges, but the point is with a mobile phone u can need it any time and since k550 has a single slot for charger and earphones u really nee to charge it anytime u dont need the mobile
3. buy the m2 memory stick from any shop but plz buy a one with warrantee as it might just get corrupted
i got 1 more question....
Where can you get a 1GB Memory stick for this fone??
hey ya'll!! I'm thinking about buying this fone in the next week or so and just had a few questions that hopefully some of u can help me out with.
ok...1) Can you put a personal password on, lets say, msgs, pics and other files??
and 2) Is it better to wait until the battery dies to charge it or is it the same as charging it anytime??
i wud really appreciate ANY response so can you guys please help me out??
thanx to all =)
I purchased this phone 5 months ago. It's a good phone, lot of features just for me. Good battery life (5-6 days). Initially the keypad is hard to use, but after it's too easy!! Camera is good except night mode, but it's not problem for me. Music is good with speaker, excellent using headphones. UI and browsing are fast... Great value of money!!!
guys can u connect this phone to the computer
and is the sound quality good and loud
whats the keypad like is it hard to use and
does it change couler when used to much
is the camra good quality
and please wb ! ! !thanks
this is a boss phone the picture is very clean as for the battery story........... when you purchase a phone you do not charge it you use it until it discharges ....this should prolong your battery life ......let phone discharge for a least 3 times and you'll see you will only need to charge it in fact every 4-5 days!! believe that!!
Hi DaveS...Could it be possibly manufacturing defect for battery. Even i checked the IMEI number before purchasing the mobile and the 7th & 8th digit which reads as 01. So it's manufactured with good quality.
M a huge SE fan . Last month I canged from K 750i to 550i. This is a brilliant phone.
Wider display, supports most of the formats for music( e.g. m4a, wma, itunes etc which even earlier walkman brands dont support), the speaker volume is louder, the music output is excellent. If you use walkman headphones its better than W 810 i, you can run multiple applications, the FM reception is excellent, slim and sexy design. Excellent outdoor photos especially the macro mode.
Cons- indoor photos and photos in low light conditions are worst, not comparable with K 750i, battery life is not so good as i have read in the reviews, NO memory card and if you have to buy the memory card is more expensive than that of other types.
K550 it is a great phone,but the batery it suck's,from a lithiu polymer batery i had more expectation.
i listen two about two and a half hours of music each day and usually take a few pictures and i only have to charge the phone every 3/4 days.
turn bluetooth off and the battery life almost doubles.
I just purchased this phone a fortnight ago. Battery is coming for max 2 days for me. As i have no time to listen to music and just max 10 pic taken so far. But battery is not lasting for 3-4 days as mentioned in all the websites while i did research for this model. I talk less. So most of the time my phone will be idle. I wonder why it's not lasting 3-4 days. Guys please suggest me what i can do?
guys... i hasitated alot b4 purchasing this mobile... coz my budget was limitied.... but guys believe me ... i am now 100% satisfied... this is the best mobile phone among all of my mobile that i had used... those who said the camera quality is not good i strongly disagree wid them... guys it's not a digital camera its a mobile !!!!!
some of the features i'll like to rate :
1.os 10/10 [very fast]
2.sound 6/10 [not very good compare to walkman phones]
3.camera 8/10 [lil darky in night :(]
4.internet 9/10 [had 22KBPS on pc]
7.batery good [3-4days (if u use camera then batery will vapourized like petrol :D]
and the keypad is a lil tricy but believe me after 1 month it'll be easy as pie to use.
i personaly recomend those who has limited budget and lots a confusion .... purchase this with keep ur eyes shur :d
good luck.... :D
