It's always better to use the latest driver for your vga\sound card, so as the situation with your mobile.
However I suggest that you live with your K750 for 2 or 3 days first, and who knows !?, maybe you just like it as it is and forget about the firmware updating all together.
@DoUL hehehe.. Yupz just what I was expecting you to tell me.
You just made my day here.. I will definitely get the K750i now.. I will just buy myself a 1GB card, and just forget the offline mode..
By the way.. When I get the phone. Do you recommend me to update the firmware update 1st before using it?
Yes, it's only for marketing purposes.
Just like Nokia N90 Carl Zeiss optics camera lens propaganda.
@DoUL :-) ok!! thankz.. I guess Im meant for the W800i since I really want the Offline options, And I guess I just have to live up with the teen age design of the W800i.
You are really big help here..
Just knowing that these 2 phones have the same sound quality.. So the Walkman logo doesn't really make sense uh?
It was true in the past, now you can't do so.
The new updating software will identify your phone as a K750 device and will automatically call for K750 firmware.
I can't tell you for sure how big is R1AA008 firmware, it's directly loaded into the phone and not stored into the PC as the previous updating software used to do.
I'm on a dial-up so measuring the download time will have a high error\fault rate, but I think it's something between 10-15 MB's.
Only smart phones firmware will reach 65 MB, for it's a complete OS and when they add\correct something they have to replace the whole OS with the new corrected one as patches are not that suffiecient in mobiles software -I guess-.
Anyway, no, the available 38 MB of the shared memory won't change\decrease.
I wanted to update my k750, on sony ericsson site they have mentioned that the software updates for the phones are 10-65 MB depending on model. so I wanted to know that the ver:R1AA008 is of how much mb in size & the most important thing is, DOES IT AFECT MOBILE'S internal MEMORY,I MEAN IF THE UPDATE IS OF 10 MB, THEN THE FREE INTERNAL MEMORY DERICTLY REDUSES FROM 34MB TO 24 MB?
@DoUL you must really love this phone to answer all these questions uh..
Well check out the Nokia 6270 page.. I like the phone so much that Im willing to help people out there for their problems..
Well just wanna tell you.. Im planning to buy either K750i or W800i.. and YES Ive been reading the previous posting you have.
So is this rumor true.. Can you really replace the firmware of the K750 and update it to a W800i?
Because these are my problems.. I like the design of the K750 but I like the features of the W800i especially the offline mode.
So if you can help me out here.. I would really appreciate it..
Seems that you forget so fast.
I've already talked about the headset comparison, I said W800 one is better because it has a 3.5mm jack through which you can plug another headset to use with W00, where K750 one is better in higher volume levels. Both can be used with K750.
Read my posting down this page addressed to "behind" to know if you still can flash into W800 firmware or not.
As I said before -again-, both have the same media player version and use the same loud speaker, they are equal in music play back quality, only differs in the used headset.
Keep this page in your Favorites & check it from time to time:
He wanted to tell you to use your phone untill it automatically switch off due to 0 power left in the battery before charging it, and make sure to keep it switched off during the charging. Remove it from the charger after 2 hours, even if it didn't show "Fully charged" yet, and use it till the last bit of power, keep doing that and oneday you'll have the display showing "Fully charged" even before the 2 recommended charging hours.
thanks jack ^^
u means wait till the battery show totally empty only charge rite?
i will try it later hope it can work ^^
thank you so much ^^
btw, where can i find out about the newest updates available for my phone? n the info of the update of course.

@doul i have not updated my firmware 4 my k750i or done anything to it but could i still be able to flash it to w800i firmware.?
wait till the phones battary is totally flat then put it on charge for 2 hours and 30 mins and it should be ok.
i dont know y youre phone is doing this but several people have complaned about this the person i bought it from/carphonewarehouse never said charge it for 8 hour when i turned on the phone it already had a bit of battary in it then when it went flat i put it on charge till it said fully charged.also the charger is usally warm when charging so after 2.5 hours if it has gone cold it should be finished.

Human being that is too lazy to write his name down !.
The SMS share in the shared memory is 200-250 KB, I don't know how many SMS's can be stored in such space, it depends on the average size of all messages you have, but in general it won't be enough if you're messaging a lot and save every single SMS -even your service provider recharging reminders !-.
No, they can't be stored in the MS.
NO, there was no data back-ups in my case, you can do it if that will make you feel safer, in fact, data loss is a possibility in case that anything bad happened during updating, so backing-up your data is a smart thing to do.
There is no way to back-up your current firmware, nor there will be a method through which you can roll back to it.
If anything bad happened, all you'll need to do is to take your phone to any SE customer care center and they will flash it for you properly -give it a try yourself 1st, the new updating software is free from troubles, indeed very reliable, very easy to use and staright forward-.
If you don't have any bugs and don't need any of the new features\improvements of the new firmware -down this page is a posting addressed to "Unidentified" in which there is a link to a page that has an analysis to all available firmwares, check it out to see if you'll really gonna benefit from the new firmware or not- then I recommend you forgetting it.
If you wanna give it a try still you're afraid about it, just take your mobile to SE customer service and they will flash it for you without the slightest trouble at all.
I feel the phone a little faster with the new firmware, louder too, but that's all.
Well, quicker or slower, safer or troublesome, it doesn't matter now.
I said several time that you no longer can flash into W800 firmware, that ship is already sailed !.
how many sms can a K750i store??can it be transfer to the memory card?
will there be a problem after upgrating to the w800 software ?
is the phone really quicker ?
