I like this phone a lot but was gonna replace it because the joystick was rubbish.
thanks to the guy with the tip about holding it down and rotating for 2 mins, it resets itself and works a treat.
my favourite bit is showing your notes on screen when in standby.
this is such a gd fone! i recommend it defniently. but there r some problems like the camera sound that cannot be turned off, on some mobile fone plans (like mine) you cannot acces the 'play now' section and you can only choose from the provided message alerts (but this is not that big of a problem). overall, i do think this fone is gr8 and if your looking for a inexpensive mobile with all the features, this is the on to go for.
K500 has not BlueTooth-it`s very BAD
Just got this phone... i think it's nice.. But, I'm having problems with the camera. Can anyone tell me how I can switch off the sound when taking photos? the sound is very loud & irritating! Pls advise.
Great phone, no complaints about it. I bought it one year ago and nothing is wrong with it. Great screen, takes wonderful pictures (unless you are some sort of snob and expect 5.2 MP quality), the sound is great and i never had any problems with the joystick, but then again i don`t nail stuff in wood with it cuz you know ... it`s a phone.
Also at the price it was released i wasn`t even DREAMING i would get such a great phone.
DOeS Tis HP HAV ani USB port..?? they say YES..but where is it..???!!
caN anyone plz..reply mee...thX...
Well, optus are fasing out the Sony Ericsson K508i and im hoping i can get my hands one of the last at the local depatment store, i ordered one so im hoping, But if it dont come i hav to look at this phone with virgin, is just as good as the K508i? and whats the difference, they look the same and look like they have the same features?
No...it dose not have Bluetooth...
hye all.. do this hp has a bluetooth connection? plz someone answer me?
the single minus is that it can hold only 100 sms messages :)
a great phone to have it plays polyphonics like mp3 tones what a sound system and camera even better than others
I have my K500i for 8 months now and my advice for you is to go and buy it now. It is a great phone, it has a good camera, a nice display, good and clear sound, decent batery his only minus is that it has a short memory, but for me it is ok. The joestick works well, I had no problem with this phone until this moment.
For those who say this phone has problems I can only say that it is like a lotery, you can get the latest phones from any top brands and it can brake down anyway.
In my opinion this phone is one of the best and SE is the best mobile manufacturer, my next phone will be K750.
Bye from Romania!!!
The k500i is the best phone ever. Great Camera, Great sharp 128x160 screen. You have unlimited video recording.
Buy this phone!
Thanks my prob is solved now with my joystick thanks!
You'll like this phone only for 1 week after you've bought it...and then afterwards...u're opinion's gonna change
this phone has good qualities but has lotsa LIMITATIONS. I've heard so much about the joystick problem...almost everyone had it, software also causes problems, the processing speed is not as good as u'd expect. One example is that if u have about 20 - 25 pics in ur pics folder, open it and it'll take a lot of time to display them. All in all this phone sux, i'd rathar buy Symbian OS mobile like 3650,3660 or 6600. Adios
The best phone eva!
hey u all whining about ur joystick. i have the solution to ur problem. its sipmle. hold the joystick down with ur thumb and keep rotating it in circles for about 2 minutes. ur prob will be solved.
this is the worst telephone i've ever used.the camera takes horrible pictures,my joystick broke down and it has problems with the display,my advice is: don't buy this.............
for those who cant transfer songs from pc to phone, buy an infrared adapter, a hav downloaded lots of songs from my pc to my k 500
im using this k500 for the last 5 months , i havnt encountered any serious problems at all , its just the joystick, its not working well as it gets old
