after reading all good reviews on the k750i, i purchased one last week. the k750i i purchased was a vodafone brand, meaning it was locked to vodafone only. after taking out of the pack and charging it, to my horror it crashed, i couldnt use any of the functions!! the solution was to take the battery out and boot it up..
this is what happened every time i left it for a few hours alone> it froze!!
after google searching the problem, i found out through some forums that vodafone branded K750i's had firmware problems, so i was not alone!!
i found a contact in one of the forums that upgraded the firmware to w800i for £20...cool!!
after the upgrade, all the restrictions eg; mp3 playback was unlocked, so was the phone. the w800i walkman playback is a fantastic function.
i would recommend a firmware upgrade to anyone who has a k750i..
You can either convert mp3's to mp4's using iTunes or using any mp3 cutter to remove some parts of the mp3 making it smaller, but both solutions will make the song not that complete - mp4 with lower bit rate and frequency will produce no treble at all & will have distortion at a very early volume level and cutted mp3 mmmmm you know sounds incomplete & loses it's joy -. I suggest you replace the memory card with a 512 one for not so high price or a 256 one will make you have about 60 songs, or just keep replacing those 15 songs every 2 days - with the high speed transferring rate will take almost no time at all-.
how to make mp3 smaller ? i can put about 15 mp3 to 64mb card... i would like to put it more :)))) i heard that it is imposible to do mp3 smaller and the quality is good enough
"can k750i play video in mpg format? for what i know it is able to play video in only mpg4 format. because i am not able to get it play a music video that i have download in mpg format as most of the videos avaliable are in mpg format. is there any ways i to sovle this problem?"
No, it will play only mp4 video. But conversion is simple and quick with a pc or laptop. I recommend ImToo MPG Encoder.
"Is it possible to flash K750 firmware to W800 firmware directly using the Sony Ericsson website? I mean the way u do to update firmware for k750, using SEUS."
Nope, SE doesn’t want you doing this and is in the process of trying to stop it. But you can do it online and there are links in this (k750i) forum not too far back, or google it.
"erm i wonder can u hear mp3 wif bluetooth ??issit on tis phone only or for any mp3 phone??"
I can answer this question cos’ I was looking into the exact same thing not long ago, and you can get decent bluetooth stereo headphones, but in this country (UK) prices start at around £60 and go up.

hi.. just got my K750.. simply fantastic. I used for more than 3 hours of Mp3, radio and camera and the battery still got 56%. Super clear camera as well as great mp3 player.. just like everyone says. Very good radio. If you make a call and talk via the speaker it is not too bad.. its not that low. Maybe it won't be too bad for me even in the loud environment, however, i found that if i use the earphone to make a call then the sound quality also improved. Signal works perfectly, just like any other fone, not that special though.
we greatly appreciate your replies now we know for certain this phone is good as almost everyone said thank you for the replies.
umm this is a question for the people at allphones in keilor downs. Is it true that you can get the k750i on a $20 a month plan with vodaphone. can u e mail me thanks.

The reception is excellent, i have never had less than 4 bars in my area. (Before the firmware update i did, reception was a little bit lower, but after you update your phone you get better reception) =).
valentin is right why do ppl dont mention the reception quality? if you ppl say that this phone rocks then you need to know the real importance of the phone? the reception! ppl like us need the reply very badly so pls answer my or our question! asap!
Disregard my last comment, i fixed my problem, it had something to do with Windows XP SP2. =)
I just got my k750, but the LCD does not turn off during call. Any idea.
well, i was about to answer no, it doesn't...but then i tried, and yes it can operate exactly like you said.
thanks for that : )
i have a samsung d500 and im about to get the K750. i have this question, can you browse through menus by the numbers? in my d500 i have the option to navigate throughout the whole menu by using numbers. for example, if i wanna check out my SMS Inbox, i could just press Menu,5,1,2 instead of the up and down buttons. i was wondering if the k750 had that. would appreciate some feedback. thanks
not sure, but i've had no problems. we need someone with better tech info here.
Hmm does anyone have a problem trying to send a file to the phone via bluetooth? It says I need an OBEX push profile. What is that? Thanks.
"may i know whether k750i can use Silicon Power 1GB SD Card?"
Doesn’t sound like it , you need PRO DUO memory card, same kind as the new psp takes, and at the minute I think only two companies supply it, sandisk and sony. Tests have been carried out and the sandisk memory can be up to 1 third faster than sonys….so go for sandisk! cheaper too.
"hey guys, do u know if mp3 can be used as message alert tone like in nokia?"
"What is largest memory stick supported?"
2Gb at present. thats a massive amount for a phone.
what does 'macro'do when taking pictures?
Also, are there any website on how to take good pictures with this phone?"
Macro mode is for taking extreme close ups, such as coins, circuit boards etc. very useful. And no, no website needed for help (well, unless your skills needed really polishing : )). Its all pretty much automatic, point and shoot.
"Nobody seems to be talking about the "Reception quality of this phone or others...Most people are talking about MP3, camera etc. Does anybody know to gage or rate the reception on K750 or recommend another brand
of good repute? Thanks!!"
No problem whatsoever with reception for me, but I am in city.
