As mentioned earlier to someone with the same questions:
1) if you only plan to do this a couple of times - option b) thru friends laptop (or maybe you have access to a laptop at work? Email the files to yourself at work!
2) if you plan to do this many times with smaller files - option a) IR port
3) if you are a serious user and use K300 to the fill extent with daily sychronizations of calender etc - use option c) data cable
Thanks for your reponse Colnagoguy
Which is the better option? I like the sound of an infrared port but know very little about this type of thing. What would you recomend? and how easy is the process of transfer?
Thanks again - FB
Do you have an Infra Red port on your PC?
If you don't you either have to
a) buy a Infra Red port for your PC
b) email your mp3 song to someone who has an IR port on their PC (most laptops have one)
c) or buy the data cable I have mentioned beneath in another post
I know I'm being lazy here (still haven't worked out how to search this particular forum!), but can anyone give very straightforward instructions on how to download a single Mp3 song from my own collection on my desktop PC to my K300.
Any help, much appreciated. Thank you
it depends on many factors; your own usage (many games? download a lot? WAP? Listen to music? how many hours do you speak/day?), how good coverage your operator has etc.
If you live in a big city (=good coverage) and use the phone primarily for speaking and taking some photos/day You will need 6-8 recharges/month; i.e. 1,5-2 recharges/week.
It seems a very cool phone. Can anyone tell how good is battery performance? How may times a week do you charge it?
The k300i is one of the most uniqe mobiles. Even that there are other mobiles that are much better, the k300i is the best.
Not all MP3s are 5 Mg, i have a 50 cent song on my K300i and its 4.40 Mins long and only 549 Kbs and its an MP3.
The reason the phone can play mp3 files is mainly for ring signals. This phone is not intended to be a "music phone" - more the most affordable camera phone that Sony Ericsson makes.
The Walkman series are intended for more serious music use. This phone cannot play wma files.
hey u guyz, I haven't bought the fone yet, but i've had read such a GREAAAAT reviews abt it, and um gpnna buy it for sure, but there's a question i wanna ask first, the memory is sooo small, 12 MB for god's sake, with the mp3 file's size, it's gna be like 2 songz in the end....my question is, can the mp3 player play wma files? for the records, it's size is much smaller than the mp3s with the same quality, thnx for ur time
I'm not Meer...
My advice is the K300. I have honestly not had a better phone at this proce level!
Well.... thnks Meer.. for the gr8 info... now i would like to buy 1.... but i'm stilll a bit confused in siemens CX65,Samsung X600 and K300i... becoz in my country these three sents hav same price.. but features r a bit different... so plzz tell me whch 1 shud i buy?! Advance thanks..
you have to configure the phone - but this is very easy! Go to www.sonyericsson.com/support, chose which country you are in, then phone (k300) and then click "Phone setup" which you find in the menu on the left side.
To enable downloading you must enable "WAP"
Click thru your choices: K300, country, data connection type (GPRS; you want your downloading to be quick!), enter the characters you see on the screen and your mobile number with country code and you will receive the settings as a SMS. When you get it, just click "OK" and it should be done. To be REALLY sure the settings work you can restart the phone (just like a PC).
it's an excelent phone! I had it since may and I haven't found anything bad. I just sell it because everyone has one of this, but if you don't mind having a phone so common is an excelent choise. by the way, the camera in night is excellent, better than any other I ever seen.
how do i listen to downloadable music or play games which are downloaded to? Do i have to buy something which will make it work. Everytime i try orange world it will just say connection failed
Im happy whit my phone K-300,is not expensed, i can listen my music mp3, send photos to my fiends...good device good price..
This is an incredible phone, i have 1 and its amazing. if u have any questions about it u can email me

One can adjust the video duration by pressing "more" when in video mode (to record video) and chose the 6th alternative: "Recording time". You then have 2 alternatives: about 10 secoonds for MSS or unlimited (i.e. memory availability in phone)
i had been using this K300 set and everything seemed great.. but 1 thing i should admit... my set's vedio program didnt work too well... sometimes it is seen that the duration of video was 10 secs and sometime later when i again wanted to vedio something i could record for 15 secs.. i didnt know what really could cure this problem.. so. i dumped it..
