You can upgrade software in the phone regardless of your location. I prefer to do that through SE.com-europe-UK.

Yes you can set video shooting to unlimited on K750i. It`s very easy-just go to settings.
Hey Guys. I have been hibernating over the summer :)
How do you remove the 10 second video limit on the K750. On my V800, i can just select ''unlimited'' under settings. Can you not unlimit this with the k750, and its CyberShot interface??
how can i check my firmware!? and just for saying this phone is awesome maybe you need a bit more more memory say 256 Mb(for more mp3) but it's cool anyway pics are just great (but light is important factor)
is it really needed to reboot your phone everyday? im just wondering if it has got something to do with hanging problems.. my phone is just almost 2 months old and it already hung up several times even after upgrading my firmware 2 weeks ago.. do you think rebooting it everyday will resolve the issue?
also, is there a way to see what current software your phone has?
i got a lot of problems with my last two fones of sony ericsson...... So NO CHANCE to take another risk with what ever this fone has in it.
U N Owen,
"to the people on this site that are telling the readers that the K750i and the W800i are basically the same..."
That's true. If you happened to read my previous messages I've said "Actually the differences bw K750 & W800 are about: Design, Including memory & Software (ability of playing musig when the phone is off or SIM is not in place)".
So you say the color, Keypad, Camera lens cover & ... are different, Ok those are all about "Design". Although I've mentioned the including mem. in pckg., it should not be considered as a major diff. coz you may easily upgrade your ext. mem. as well. After all you didn't mentioned the main functional diff. which is the ability of using handset as a walkman when the phone is off ( & I don't know practically how many times it would be happend to use such feature?! ).
According to these all these 2 phones are "Basically" the same (Plz pay attention to that "Basically").
I guess it is not necessary to count 1527!! functions, features & hardwares to come to conclusion that they are "Basically" the same.
I'm Back! May I ask if latest firmware is applicable here in the philippines?
I've been using this phone for a almost two months now and i haven't had any regrets. I was an envy with any nokia users. My brother had his n6630. But when he checked the functionality against my k750i, he really had this "envy" thing telling me that he must also have this k750. why??? because it has a flash light, almost perfect camera..MP3, infrared, radio, and many more..
Lucky me, i haven't had any problems with my phone since i am rebooting it every morning just like my laptop..
Question: is the latest firmware applicable here in the philippines? I'm still using R1L002.
The remote function is the coolest!!! Symbian OS is not that useful to me and to my brother.. This phone will reign for the next two years...ANSWER MY QUERY PLEASE!
Warning! If you mess with the firmware on this phone--Sony will not support it. And, if your ISP has altered it, Sony Ericsson Tech Support will not help you. How do I know? Read on…
I got my phone from the “Sony Style” store in the USA. It had a few issues. I called to Sony Ericsson Tech Support. OMG, according to Tech Support, there are other versions of the firmware in the W800i--not authorized by Sony Ericsson. The menus in my phone were not the same as the menus in the phones coming directly from Sony Ericsson Online. Some of the advanced menus are simply not in my phone. I was told to return the phone, and to get one directly from Sony Ericsson--as these were the only phones Sony would guarantee to be correct. i.e. don’t buy an unlocked version; buy a version that comes directly from Sony Ericsson that has all functions enabled.
So, if you are having, “Bluetooth” headset support issues, SMS “Validity Period” issues, problems accessing WAP/Internet with your service provider, … it is due to the firmware.
Oh, and to the people on this site that are telling the readers that the K750i and the W800i are basically the same. That is not so--even according to Sony. Call them and ask! Also, I’ve used both. The Orange phone has--among other things: a more durable plastic--i.e. Walkman strong, different shaped buttons, a studier case--due to the lack of the sliding camera door--which causes the K750i body to flex and squeak, 512mb memory stick, Walkman headphones, … So, if you don’t mind the orange color--i.e. Walkman brand--the W800i has $100 of extras.
There is an exception when doing "righ-*-left-left-*-left-*". If you've assigned the "Sound Recorder" to your joystick "Right" or "Left" movement, you should deactivate it before you check the SW version.
I think you'd better upgrade your SW as well.
According to your comments this is the last way you should try before you get it to a local service center. I'll pray it works!
"This phone is very slow on detecting the signal ..." Unfortunately ( in fact fortunately!!) I had not a chance to test that, coz the whole area of my location is well covered & I should test that when I'm driving out of town. Maybe I do it in my next trip & till then I can't make a comment.
"When I asked about assigning a ringtone ..."
I got that right after I replied your message & corrected myself in just next comment.
Hey man. I think you definitely should upgrade the SW in the phone, it will improve a lot. My first tries failed untill I downloaded the latest JAVA from Java.com and then assigned it properly to the phone. Then I updated the SW through SE UK site. Simply follow their instructions. The new SW is supposed to be-
R1N035, which you can check this way:
Play with your joystick-righ-star-left-left-star-left-star
and you will be able to read in the service info what SW you have. You will improve the signal strength in the first place. As for some lugs, honestly speaking I`m still have them once in awhile, maybe it sometimes happen when you try to read a memory card and it`s not as fast as HIGH SPEED memory card that has 80 kb/sec, in that case you should go for SONY 1 GB HIGH SPEED.
i have upgraded my phone to the R1N035 firmware and u should also because:
- better MP3 volume by phone.
- better signal.
- better night mode picture.
- fatser surfing.
i think it is worth it to upgrade.
u should have.
- window xp with min SP1
- window 2000 with min sp3
- usb update driver (u can find it here http://www.sonyericsson.com/sp...278&esi=true )
- java 2.0 and higher (u can find it here http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp )
Hi to everyone and thanks for all the useful exchanges here. My 5750 fell and the inner screen broke. Does anyone know what it might cost, in dollar figures, to replace it in Europe? I can't see anything on the screen.
Please make sure you know if this phone is going to work where you live i live in Central NY and the service is horrible why is it that most US phones suck but european countries have nicer phones i dont get it if were suposed to be the most advanced and have all the money where are the nice phones?
Kamran & TechSavvy ,
I have about 16 MB of free phone memory and about 13 MB of free card memory..The point is when i switch off and on my cell, it works well. After some time it again slows down.. I have been told to update my mobile s/w.. Should I go with that?? PLease HELP!!
the disadvantage of it is when you own a car charger, desk charger, speaker stand, headsets, car holder, usb cable back from your previous fon,k700... for all of those you need to buy it all again coz the k750 is using a different port......
(",) since the time this phone was released... i told myself that this will be my next phone..(that time, im using k700i). Finally, i have it!!!
The phone is really amazing, from the camera, to radio, to mp3, and the shortcut keys.. :) My gosh!! I really love it!!
I highly recommend this phone!!
