Kindly somebody advice how to increase the resolution of w200i from 65k to 256k & how to ebable the bluetooth.Is it possible to replace 2mega pixel camera to VGA.
the Thump is here!
I bought it last week!!!Just 1 word is Perfect for this----Mind Blowing!!!
I try the new update service,and when i check the software version in my cellphone this is the version CXC1250720 R4JAO11..Is this the new software version or old one?
The new update (I believe) fixes some camera issues and Walkman bugs... The firmware version can be seen by going to MENU, SETTINGS, GENERAL, UPDATE SERVICE, SOFTWARE VERSION.
Also, the W200 is a budget orientated phone - this is exactly like a K320 but stripped down to a 0.3 MP camera, and no bluetooth.
Any more questions - please ask.
I am willing to help (as long as the question is valid)
i looked at the phone, it looks awesome! until i saw that there is no bluetooth... what is up with that?
hey guys, what is the new firmware version? i've bought one acouple of days ago and i want to know what the current version is so I can update mine. and one more thing, how can i minimize the font size? font size is too big when you are texting. thanks
I tried the new update, I followed the instruction given but yet theres nothing changed on my phone..what is the new software version and how can I get it correcty?
Update your phone via computer using Sony Ericsson's Update Service (type it in goggle.com and download it). From there follow the instructions. The new firmware that you download will fix the WALKMAN sound problem (high-pitched sound) I think. I haven't experienced this problem after the new firmware... The new firmware though doesn't fix on the hissing sound when listening to quiet songs such as Mozart(!). I think SE should fix that... Try the update. If even by computer no update is found, I suggest that you go to a phone shop and get it unlocked (fully) with SE's generic W200 software... Then try updating...
Problem with SE and its customer service is that they don't keep up-to-date with each other... That is why UK wants you to send the W200 to them... This is a theory, since I don't work for them... Note that the WALKMAN problem may still exist, and that I simply havn't experienced yet (hope not)
One definite thing that has been updated is the Camera driver. The previous fimrware used to produce warped, corrupted images for no reason... Now it is VER4.0 from VER2.6
When you connect the phone to the computer, the phone should say PHONE MODE or FILE TRANSFER MODE. You must select FILE TRANSFER so Windows can recognise the phone as a FLASH DRIVE.
To check the firmware, go to MENU, SETTINGS, GENERAL, UPDATE SERVICE, SOFTWARE VERSION.
Yaaa its really a cool fone.......good sound better than nokia and very good bass in head fones.......battery is also good.......it is really excelent......don't think more abt this fone if u wana buy just buy
can somebody tell me what is the new update all about?..what are the changes in the phone..what is the software version?
the thing is i havent been able to transfer music because my computer (brand new compaq, windows vista) doesnt recognize the phone. i wasnt able to install the software that came with the phone, so i downloaded a new version from sony ericssons support site. it installed, but still, windows is unable to recognize my phone presumably because of a lack of drivers. i dont know what to do, i have read everthing and cant find an answer
i bought the phone recently in Venezuela locked to Digitel. it was an upgrade for my k310. the phone itself is fine, just likethe k310, does the same things, same old features, same camera, IR, lack of bluetooth. More memory, from 15mb of the k310 to 27mb plus an m2 of 256mb. headphones (ugly but the sound is ok), usb cable, stereo rca cable, all good. the only thing i've tried is the music because my computer doesn recognize cthe phone
Yes it has a horizontal mode and you can view pictures and video full screen. It is not automatic.
You cannot forward rewind the video in this mode.
Can it play videos in full screen? Can the camera viewfinder work horizontally?
I bought a W200i in spain last month . I have run the update service and it always tells me that there are no new updates. But I have the same problem of the song stopping in between and a high pitched noise starts. I have to switch tracks to stop the same.
I had written to sony UK they said that it is very unfortunate that this problem is coming and asked me to send the mobile phone to them for repair under warranty.
Has anyone tried the solution to come out of this problem.
A detailed mail solving this problem will be appreciated.
Note: My phone is locked to Orange SIM in spain
The update for this phone should be installed with the Update Service on the computer via USB cable. Just google.com it and download the Update Service. From there the instructions are given, though I recommend to non-computer geeks to install with caution... If you don't mind installing via WAP, which is alot more expensive, that would be the safer method...
So far, this phone (with the new firmware) can support 2GB M2 cards... I recently bought a 1GB thinking that was the best...
UBC screen is very similar to CSTN in terms of technology and quality... I believe that it is possible to upgrade the existing UBC screen with a TFT LCD screen from the K510, which has a better quality and more colours than the UBC... Not sure if 100% compatible though...
If you are using a 2GB M2 card with this phone, please tell me~ Plus, if any W200 user experiences any bugs with the new firmware, please tell me also~
