not yet bro. i will only upgrade my phone when the programs got errors or becomes old. my phone is now one month old so i don't see any reason of upgrading it. but i don't conradict your decision of upgrading but some upgrades could cause more errors. just like my friend here in php. her phone was upgtaded to an small mobile phone shop in a mall. after upgrading the phone the changes is considerable, it is faster, but when i connect it to pc suite, the phone is not supported it the pc suite said.
by the way it is a nokia 6020. so don't worry, fake firmwares are rare with SE thats why i really support SE phones and my k300.
and can you also reply if your phone had some better changes after upgrading. by the way whenever you needed help just chat me in this site.
@ cezar, thanks a lot for replying
well i found an upgrade @ sonyericsson'z official website, am trying to download it .
N have ya upgraded ur mobile phone ?
Hey thanx,my fone was under warr so I went to SE. They opened up the fone for me, and I saw that one of the transistors had caught fungus on the pcb. But I don't think that was the problem, but that made my warr void neway, some water must've creeped in through the bottom end of the fone where the charger interface is there. Well neway told them to change the firmware, coz I don't think a damp transistor should slow down the fone, and ya they also told me that it could be a firmware prob. They're gonna take an equivalent of 10 dollars in my currency, so thought what the hell, might as well let them do it.
to the guy below me.
you are facing two probable problems: software or firmware error when manufacturing which needs upgrade or reinstalling firmware. and full memory if i am right, then try to free some memory to your fone and restart it again if still won't work you need to upgrade/ repair the firmware.
installing of firmware is not as easy as you are thinking. you will have to look for a software for installing flashes in your fone before you can install the firmware. you better go to the SE costumer center to upgrade the firmware. and please don't be desperate to install the fone (if you have not yet an experienced mobile software especialist on SE models or even first timers if i am right but sorry if wrong) coz you may damage your software. dude you better go to SE center for upgrade. good luck for the your upgrade
I've been using this phone for a couple of months now. However i'm facing a bit of a problem now, i'm wondering whether anyone has a solution. The fone works at the usual speed at the first instance when i switch it on. But after I receive a call and then disconnect the fone becomes really slow, and all the java applications also become really slow. Also sometimes the fone suddenly restarts. And another thing sometimes when I take out the battery and put it in, sometimes the fone powers itself on without me pressing the power button. I've reset the fone already once, but it still did not solve the problem.
ok , thanks for the quick reply, i got usb data cable for my self now
can u tell me now that from where i can update its firmware version ? im desperately waitin for it . to update & see the changes in my phone ;)
it is imposible to update you firmware via infrared, you will need a serial/usb cable todo it cause it will take long time before you can upgrade your firmware infrered is too sluglish in sending datas. and please don't do it coz it will possibly destroy the unit if the wireless link from pc to mobile was interupted. you will need a cable in order to do it...
and to the guy above you...
stop criticizing k300's joystick. and don't jusge it's memory coz it the best in it's class. even siemens will be no match in k300's specs and performance. the real thing why we prefer to this mobile is that it's price is perfect for a high performance phone. (mp3,mpeg4,Vga camera interpolated to 1.3 mp, 12mb ram compared to nokia 6020 2.3mb and siemens c70 10mb0
to all k300 fans, i disagree to this guy. sorry
this mobile is really nice feature.i like it very much because it has nice features of sound and polyphonic tones.
This found didn't seem to suit me. I love the design but the joystick kept breaking, the screen was impossible to read in bright sunlight and the memory is laughable. Go for a better model.
Can anyone tell me that how do i update its software version ? I HAVE GOT INFRA RED ( RED-BRIDGE )
I think it is very amazing product of
Sony Ericson. But it should be with extended
unfortunately zoom view for images is not possible in K300.
But u can view 340X240 and 120X160 images in zoom mode (in image editor). Go to image options>use>edit. U can see full image for editing.
I have another question:
When I take a picture, how do I zoom in that picture to see the details?
Ex. if I take a pict of a text, I can't read it cause it displays the whole image on screen. How do I zoom in to read the text, if it's possible?
I have had it 3 since three months later.
I can say it`s wonderfull, so light, high quality sound and....
I recommend this mobile for everybody want to have only mobile not PC.
very simple and nice mobile.
i got this phone two weeks ago and it's a really ok choice for it price.
still, it lacks some things like a quality photo camera, a memory card slot and a lcd screen (the dtsn is unreadable in the sun), PLUS: many java games won't fit because of the resolution (k500 has double pixels)
i love the www.myk300.lasyk.net site, it has neat stuff in it
i can't find a firwmare upgrade for the t9 languages :( help?
Used to have this phone brilliant phone very reliable only pproblem is its memory is too small otherwise got good signal and sound is excellent
It's great, with zooming camera and good sound quality. To get free software, game, themes, ringtones and many things for k300i, please enter "http://www.myk300.lasyk.net/".
it's my phone's first month since i bought it here in php.
the joystick: still in good condition, just handle it with care so that it wont make failures.
and abt the speaker i have stated that time:
the speaker produces craking sound because the speaker has no bass but the earphones. you can hear. this situation is usually occur when you have put a song with a very high bass. WAV files are also supported in phone but is not advisable to play cause it sounds cracking also another is that it eats too much memory so you prefer to mp3 that has a better sound quality in small size.
for those who wants to install mp3s even the phone has only 12MB ram,
compress the mp3 at least 16-18kbps using musicmatch (convert files in the menu at the top) the quality is till good in the speaker but you can barely hear it in the earphone at better quality.
K300 has all i need at this generation. the only drawback is the memory but still enough for storage of anything! i really love it!
yes,You can zoom upto 4X.
yes u can type fast sms.
I bet u this is a best beginers multimedia phone.Go buy it :)
To k300i fan,
There is no option for sending java through ir, becoz i think copyright issues. But u can copy them in PC using cable or ir port.
