I have two of these phones, the scarlet, and the emerald (my mothers). I have had a replacement phone and battery, and the phone is having the same problems, its sluggish, and turns its self off randomly. My moms does the same only it shuts off more frequently (at least once a day), and she was told it was the battery. I called to ask about the issue again, and I was informed that there is an update for it, but I would have to do it from my home computer. I was then advised I would need to purchase a usb cable for this phone, which I am upset about since it didn't come with one. Now I have to probably go spend money just to try and fix the phones, and waste money on a cable, I will probably never use again. The phone looked nice, but it turned out to be very dissapointing.

No manufacture should be allowed to foster this junk on the public. T-mobile or Sony should be required to make good on this terrible product. How can I get my money back?

Hi, I'm using a Sony Ericsson TM506 and when trying to access an option in the menu, it display blank but U press the OPEN button it displays it correctly.For example, when U open the CONTACT, it seems to be blank, but when select OPEN, U can see the detail concerning the contact that U have saved.So How could I resolve that please?

Yup....I'm browsing on here trying to find solutions.It's still shuts off...Piece o' crap....hard to navigate, spent money on memory and it doesn't recognize it... I did like the big outside time display sold me. But getting it to come on is another trick. Now I'm suppose to upgrade to a text phone...I think it's all a scam.

have had the phone for a few months but from the start there have been problems and yes it is extremly sluggish at times but it is a good phone but the processing time it has is way too long and slow and some buttons randomly stopped working i had too shut it down for a while then restart it then the buttins were working fine

the phone for minimal use is good but once u start to down load, its down hill from there honestly i didn't expect this from sony they have a better reputation than this

> In reply to djapolinares @ 2010-01-26 17:04 from IauK - click to readThe phone was new I had not even had it six months before experiencing problems w/the phone. They replaced it and I am still experiencing the same problems. Please do not try to hype this phone it's horrible. I have replaced the phone once, the phone was new and it slow when you make calls, make a mistake in texting the recovery time is slow, it shut off by itself, turn it off and it time a long time to turn on, if it turn on, get many drop calls, then it take a period of time to get the reception back. Do not hype the goodness of this phone I have seen cheaper phones perform better. Sony is still not up w/technology times and it's a shame many companies are moving forward they are moving backward.

This phone is good when it comes to storing files, making calls, and I think it has a great battery life.

The problem is that it's slow (sluggish), freezes or turns off from time to time, the transfer cable is different than the regular USB one you get, the memory card is M2 (not SD), and the "T-Mobile" display in the screen is annoying if you're using a wallpaper since it blocks the image. Being notified of a new event is this phone's worse feature because you get a notification screen for anything (anything!) and it slows it down. If you spelled something wrong while texting you get "Word Not Found..." in a giant display pop-up. The same with new text messages or again, anything. You also put words faster on the phone while texting than how it's displaying them.

Overall the phone is good, but the downfall is the sluggishness.

With out a doubt the worst phone I have ever owned. Constantly locks up, lags, or otherwise does something it was not supposed to. Stay away from it, or Sony in general for that matter.

I have this phone and my sister gave it to me.. The best phone and its features are the best. Pictures taken by its camera are good and sound quality is the best compared to other phone brands. I use it as a music player too. All negative comments about this phone specifically about its hang ups and turning off by itself are just lies. Excellent phone. For me, I think am the only one here in the philippines with this phone..=)

this is a great phone. and those of you who cant send picture msgs really need to talk to your provider. it also helps if you save most of your info on your memory card and not on the phone. that helps speed up most functions on this inexpensive durable phone. and as far as battery life. when you purches this wonderful product,take the time and shut the phone off and let it charge TILL IT TELLS YOU CHARGE COMPLETE. DUH

We have two of the tm506. It would be a good phone for a kid. Dont buy this if you own a business it locks up ALOT. Cant press 1 for english, cant hangup on solisiters, cant see the screen (because its blank).
We have the update cable and did the update (several times). when you call tech suport thats the first thing they say is do an update.
We have returned the phones a few times (fourth phone now)and still have the same problem. Some people say (its a free phone) no its not unless you want to be married to t-mobile. The first phone I purchased when it first hit the streets about 17-18 months ago and it was around $150 with the 2 year contract then. Good luck if you get one. I belive this phone has a software issue.

I have had my phone since July. I have had to replace it 3 times because it will not make calls, hangs up on calls in the process because the phone lags so bad, can not use my camera anymore, turns it self off, battery sucks, call history sucks, deletes messages before I get a chance to read them and so many more things. Now t mobile wont give me a different phone cause I exchanged them in the store. This phone is the worst phone I have ever had.
