Reg blurry photos -
You have to keep the phone perfectly still while you take the picture. The picture is actually taken while you hear the click, so don't be too quick and think the picture is taken as soon as you hear the click. You have to continue and hold the phone still a second more after the "click" is heard.
Reg screen -
if you want a nicer display I recommend K500i and others which have a TFT screen. The phone is not aimed at people who are used to TFT technology; more to people who have not had a camera phone before and probably this is also their first phone with a colour display.
Is this phone worth buying ? Had a little look in the Orange shop and it looked ok..
i just bought a k300i few days ago and its pretty good except the screen which is awfull , ugly colours like a 15 yrs old tv .my problem is represented by the camera. when i start the camera the image is really ok and all it seems wonderful untill you make the picture...bleah... blurry , unclear .i dont have a data cable yet to see how pics looks on the pc because on the phone its bad...anyway, is a setting somewhere to make pics looks ok?
Thanks for the trick. I had bought the mobile pin-packed new , so I don't know its password.
However, I went to CHANGE PASSWORD & their entered a password of my own . but it gave me an error like " CHANGE PASSWORD COMMAND ERROR " so what does this mean ?
The K300a works in Europe on the 1800/1900 bands. If you will work in the UK in larger cities you can use the K300a. But be prepared that on roads between cities etc you might get cut off. But, this is normal behaviour in the US, isn't it? ;o)
K300a and K300i/c differ in that K300a also uses the GSM 850 band while the K300i/c uses the GSM 900 band instead.
The 1800 and 1900 bands are mainly used by operators in cities and highly populated areas where they can benefit of the use of the higher bands (higher number of cells/base station).
The lower bands (850 and 900) have better coverage but one runs the risk of getting cut off in cities due to lack of free cells. The phone automatically jumps to the the best bands.
The same thing also works the other way around with the K300i in the USA. I have used it extensively in the US on business trips.
Hi guys, I'm planning to buy this superb phone in a few weeks, but first I want to know if the K300a works in Europe as I'll be traveling monthly to the UK. Thanks.
Settings, Calls tab, manage calls, restrict calls, all outgoing, activate.
That comes up as a password acceptance screen, if you have a password that might work it?
I want to ask one question abt this mobile set, Please tell me the way to stop accessing the people to make calls from this mobile. I know therez a way but I don't know the proper way to do this .

uploading of mp3 tones etc to K300 can be done:
a) via mms or wap (most expensive and almost only used when buying ringtones via phone)
b) via infra red port to PC (most laptops have this have IR port. This is inclued in phone)
c) via cable (extra accessory DCU-11 is needed) through bottom connector and USB at PC.
Please read further down and the next pages for more extensive information.
Please explain, Upaul...
There is actually no Sony Ericsson model just called K300... one can see model name on the sticker under the battery on the frame (next to sim card when inserted)
There are only 3 versions of the K300 model (besides operator branded, but these vary only with branding and software):
1) K300a - a 850/1800/1900 band version made for the Americas (a)
2) K300c - a 900/1800/1900 band version made for China (c)
3) K300i - a 900/1800/1900 band version made for the rest (International market - i).
Difference between sets is only software between K300i and K300c.
The difference between K300i (and K300c) and K300a is that the K300a is made specifically for the 850 band used in South and North America. Other functionality is the same.
There are also differences in various keypads for different languages.
hi im planning to buy this phone but i got some questions to ask and i hope someone here will answer my queries.
how do u upload mp3 tones to your phone? can i transfer mp3s from my pc? how will i do that?can i upload the images to my pc?how?
Hey guys k300i is better i think , i mean i know its better . coz i have both k300 and k300i , but both of them are great
Regarding Play Now -
all K300 do not come with Sony Ericsson's "Play Now" due to that the operators think this is competing with their own cash cows (example: Vodafone Live). So if you have bought a K300i which is operator branded the chances are they have made the phone have less general functionality and have more operator specific functionality.
It sone of the best deals you can make with the price as low as this. Camera works just fine. good sound and all that one should need in this mobile is there. not as good as some nokia or sony ericsson mobile phones but comparing prices make it as good as the rest.
Rommel in reply to your post about the dcu-11 cable. i have the rsr-232-11 cable. i downloaded the file manager programme from SE site. then i restarted th pc with the phone connected and windows xp pick the phone as new hardware. opening the file manager the phone monitor icon came up the phone connected to the pc, and as the phone browser opend i just copy paste files from phone to pc and vice versa ..hope this helps Terry
