the phone's camera does not work well in night shots...but still, this phone is really cool, eventhough it encounters many problems...superb sound quality and battery stamina...but, if you encounter the so-called "white screen of death", you have to bring your phone to a repair...or you still can detach the battery for several hours, or, if not effective, for several days...hehehe...and after that, you'll just have to use the phone "wisely"...

i have w550i since december...and for the second time around, just today, it has the white screen of death...and i have to bring the phone to a service center to reflash it again...someone in the forum asked how much it is in the Philippines...well it costs around 12000-15000 pesos (openline; 1 year warranty) (USD1.00=PhilPeso51.00)...
they say R4BA041 is the newest firmware which makes w550i stable, but it is not...sony ericsson still did not make a good remedy...
in order to maintain the phone in good state, just let the phone to have 50mb memory space...and do not install too many Java apps/games...once the phone hangs up because of any thing that you did, then do not repeat that thing...that is what i learned from this phone...
phone repairs in unauthorized centers cost 500pesos, but it ends up your phone's warranty...
Yup, dis phone plays mp4 sounds & videos clearly. In order to save yo memory for dis phone, convert all ya songs from mp3 to mp4 format. It saves up yo phone's memory & the quality of mp4 is de same as mp3. Grab dis phone asap. U'll neva regret cuz im 1 of de happiest user of w550i. Peace out!!!
hello!wanna know if da phone play mp4????plzzzz let me know...
It's an absolutely gorgeous phone, good looking and the software is smart – as opposed to for instance the SE Z800.
The ONLY drawbacks I can think of are
a) the non-expandable memory (in a walkman you want more than 256 MB)
b) the camera quality (SE could have been nice and put the 2 MP camera in this one as well as in the k750).
I am extremely content with this phone except for the two things mentioned above, and I have owned and used quite a few over the years.

Yep w550i works with mig33. Doesn't seem to disconnect as far as i know.
Great Phone, but wats the difference between the W550 and the W550i
by the way, this mobile rocks! i bought this 2 weeks ago. It would be perfect if SE W550 does have the function to adjust the keypad's volume.
can anyone tell me that which websites do sell original faceplate of SE W550? Thanks a lot.
i just bought my W550i last two week ago and this phone really rocks! i call this unit the swiss knife of all mobile phones, it has 3 speakers, earphone, 3 of the coolest game and the very uniqu feature of this phone is whoooping 256 mb and the swivel thingy is just a head turner.feeling ko ako si james bond ng phone kong ito.
love you pangit ko!
Among few W550i mobile phones, there would be some taking the same picture,same time in same place with different quality, do you guyz think that's gonna happen? I used this phone once b4 and i guess it could perform in a satisfying quality if you adjust the shootng mode. Indeed it was kinda inconvenient but i guess it is just the only defection i can found in this phone
