The flash of this phone is the same as the K750i LED... why SE would brand this as Cybershot, I have no idea.
It's essentially the same as the K750i, with quadband, and upgraded software.
Really thanks for your reply.Advanced version in the sense means can it show HTML pages
@Marina - I have the Gmail app installed and it works fine. I don't know what you mean by advanced browser but I personally use Opera mini.
Audio: First at all; This phone is a K-version! The Walkman version is a W-version!
If you consider to get a Walkman phone, get a W-version!
K-version is a camera phone! Cyber Shot! Yes, it is a Cyber Shot phone!
is this a good cellphone to buy?
is the camera good? like others 2mp cameras?
if you compare the 2mp camera of k550 and the 2mp camera of w810...what is the best?
isn't a cyber-shot?
hi guys i really want to buy this sort of phone.But can anybody tell me tht the browser version it has.Does it support advanced browsing like tht of K750i.Is Gmail application works on this phone
And how about the display is it brilliant?
Plz post ur replies
First off, Pathetic keypad. Once I used the keypad, I knew I wasn't buying this one. Yuck!
Appearance: This phone looks pretty good in the promotional pictures. In person, it is BLAND. As far as I am concerned, only the w880 is uglier than the K550.
The camera: Don't go by the ads. Its no Cybershot. Many people buy Sony Ericsson phones beacuse they are great phones with a decent camera and music sounds really good on any SE phone. Well, the cam on the K550 is lousy. Cybershot? Not!
The K750/W810 and the K800 have the best cameras in SE. Period.
Audio: Like any SE phone, the K550 has a top flight music player. Sounds good. Hell, it even allows you to choose between Phone mode and In-flight mode when you switch it on. And its not even a Walkman! I must say SE phones are the best when it comes to audio quality. Even my wife's Z550 sounds great. Take that, Nokia.
Conclusion: K550 sucks.
Spend your money elsewhere. Or you are gonna feel cheated.
All things considered, I would not recommend you spend your hard-earned money on this marketing gimmick. For the same price or less, you can get a SE W700. Its a real Walkman phone, sounds great, Cam is 2 Megapixel (No autofocus, but still WAY better than the K550.) The only thing The W700 lacks is autofocus and EDGE. I had a SE W700i. Loved it. I lost it and bought the W810i. (Another brilliant phone.) If I hadn't lost it, I would probably have held on to it for a few years.
And am I the only one who thinks the W880 sucks bigtime?
Sony is up to its old tricks again. First, they release some really top notch stuff. Then, they put out trash like this to cash in. Wil they never learn?
guys what is the maximum m2 card that can fit into k550i? i hope it can support 2gb.thanks.
plz some one let me know what is d advantage or d disadvantage of not having an operating system in this mobile
Does anyone know if the phone allows you to make your mp3s ringtones?
yes on the tab menu there should be a link with the word ''search'' click that.
on my k550i its there maybe not on yours
Thanx for your reply.
Do you mean go to a tab named search? Because I only see 5 tabs: General, sounds& alerts, Display, Calls and Connectivity.
I jus tgot this phone. Other then the fact i don't like the buttons and have to really use my finger nails, its' absolutly cool and a wonderful device. The video is kinda of a downer, and the guy at the store says sony ericsson was one the best camera. That gets me to the camera. My aunt's lg phone camera is a lvl higher then this one. =\
but i get to upload stuff like mp3 and videos and music. It's all good.
cheap and good! no need 3g, buy this phone! slim with everything except 3g! wow...k550i
hi, ive gt this phone today and i got a problem.i want to send a text message but when i click on write new, there's only; picture messages, video messages and email. i dont get to choose text messages and i dont know whats the problem. plz help me
guys, certainly the pfone has the legendary sony tag on the screen, but, u can make out this one is really a budget gimmick.... i suggest you to check out the k750i for nearly the same price.
hey folks! same trouble with the others~ pondering between k550 and w610. i need a phone with good camera features, but at the same time i want a good phone with mp3 player. so can anyone say which is better? not about the pros and cons but which will they choose and why =) hope someone will help me with this! =]

> the phone will automatically come back with any files with that name.its should come back with your folder.....then
> now click ''more'' on the folder and click ''move'' and then move it to destination of your choice.
hope i helped olga...
I just bought this phone and so far I'm quite thrilled though it's just the first day and my previous cell phone was an old T230 Sony Ericsson.
Right now I've been trying to send some pictures from my PC to the phone for the past two hours. I managed to send pictures to my PC through the USB cable but I haven't managed the other way around.
I used the Bluetooth to connect, which proved more useful, as I could see the folders on my Internet Explorer. I copy-pasted some pics to the camera album -in the same folder where the pics I had taken with the phone already where-, and a question popped on my phone display where it wanted to know if it should allow those pics. I pressed yes, but when I went to the camera album on my phone, there where only the original photos. However, the available memory dropped from 72 to 70 MB. And I can see these pics in the folder on Win Explorer.
Please, could someone tell me where these photos have gone?
