I've had the phone for six months. It was great while it worked. One day half of the inside display went dead -the phone still worked though. It went to service under guarantee and after the change of the display the phone just started to collapse. The outside display is a blur, the mic and speakerphone produce a distorted high-pitched sound and all my personal settings fail to be saved in the profile customization. It is a fine phone but now (after the 2nd visit to service)I'm only looking forward to my next upgrade in October. Pity!
Hi there! Since April i started using this phone and it's too cool and i like it, cause its performance is very good and also the design and features...I bought this phone cause i know that it is good for teenagers!! Christine =)
After about 6 months mine started turning itself off also. I am getting really annoyed and by reading other postings thje firware update doesnt help. Mines going back!! Pity because i liked it!!
Hie.. I've been using this phone since february. And the first month has been great but defects started to show out during march. The phone signal keeps droping and the reception is very bad. besides, there is a major problem with the software. Whenever i do any setting changes to it, it constantly return to is default factory setting after 2-3 days. This happen even after i updated my software. I'm also frustrated with the side camera button which is so sensitive, it constantly take photo by itself... when i'm on the phone and keeping it in my pocket. The worst problem of all is whenever I recharge the battery, it will auto swith off by itself when my alarm rings, incoming phone, and incoming sms. I've send it 3 times to the SE service centre and they even change a new motherboard for me. but all these problem still exist. If you are thinking of buying this phone.. please consider well~! I regretted so much! CHEERS~!
I would like to buy this phone..Important to me is camera..Can you send me picture to my e-mail..i would like to see picture maid of with this camera on my computer..KIS
been using this fon for the past two months. very minimal complaint so far - the side button for the cam. the rest all okay, coz ive got all the features ive bargained for. anyway, still looking for a suitablle and affordable usb cable to transfer image to pc.
I've had a z520i for 6 months now and it's great. The only thing that's annoying about it is the sensitivity of the side camera button. It's constantly taking photos of the inside of my pocket with the loud camera sound effect that cannot be turned off. It's earned me quite a few funny looks.I've had none of the other problems people have had.
love this fone got it 2 days ago has nice feature and i like the desighn, only thing i dislike about it is the cliking sound it makes when i open it up and once it simotainoiusely turned off by itself kinda freaked me out but like i said lovely fone definatly BUY IT.
i bought it sony ericsson z520. it is very nice BUT:the battery not good from the first day!it does not open at once when opening it, i am very disapointed.i was so happy about my new phone!
ADVICE:DONT BUY IT!
Tellme the truth !! really this phone had this several problems that i ear?
I´ve Been think'ng to buy one ...
We have 3 of these phones in our family - looked cool, had great possibilities. However, after only 4 months ALL three phones have several problems. They take pictures randomly, shut off by themselves, won't turn on, screen goes blank, can't tell if a call has been made or not, rings or vibrates - you have no control. We've met 3 other people with same phone and same problems. Are all looking for a new phone. Don't bother to purchase this phone - you'll just have to get another soon.
the man from s-e service center called me today. he said there's nothing can be done to my z520i.... so they will replace my dead-phone with a new handset... well well, is there any possibilities it will happen again in future? if it happen when the warranty is over, i won't get a replacement rite?
this handset is so beautiful...*drools*.it will be mine,oh yes...*nods waynes world stylee*!
my commment about this phone is that i bought the phone on october last yr it was ok then, not until this year february that the phone spoilt totally.
Firstly the screen wasnt showing any more.Secondly whenever i switch it off it takes my time to switch it on again. but the phone is now with the repairer and is still new what can i do to it?
i turned it off.... try to turned it on again... failed.... so i sent it to a nearest sony-ericsson service center.... it's been more than a week and there's no news about my dearest z520i
I am getting the Sony Ericsson on Tuesday and i fell in love with it when i first saw it. nobody should dis that phone and just because it doesn't have the best memory ever it doesn't mean it's crap, why did you buy it if you think it's crap or you thought you wouldn't like it!!!!!
