Its a pretty good phone. Small, cute. The best thing is the price. Can not compare to the high end phones, but value for money.

The K750i dosen't get complaints, just a few queries other wise i just see praises!
"Zeeshn" SE are not going any where and i have trusted them all my phone life, not all there phons are great, but neither are all of Siemens or Nokia, and you said the only good SE is K750i, well theres also this decent phone (the k500i), theres the K700i (my phone i love it!), the w880i, the s700i, the p910i, the p900i, the s710i and many more, those are just some of SE's good phones!
So in other words i think we can trust Sony Ericsson!
I admit this phone isn't as good as other Sony E's however its not crap, its just for people who don't want the best quality (though most people want the best), but not everyone really care about the loss of bluetooth function, and a camera thats only good in light, but i have to say the when i played mp3's on this phone they were loud! very impressive SE, but this one will have to be a miss for now!
beleive me..it is very crap phone... on first one or 2 months you will find it very good.. but after that.. candy bar malfunctions... the receiving function becomes absolutely crap... the call drops several times and also it catches very low signals... i am very very disappointed with it... so guyes... don't even think to buy it... SE other phones are also very very crap... it's new k750i has so many complaints... after all of that... i came to point that Nokia & Siemens are only your true friends you can trust..
wow...wt a koooooooooooooooool phone,but it still makes noise when i talk pic. when i on or off the silent mode and the screen is not too clear for some pic. but the screen is very very bring at night..but i really hope the K500i can have much more memory or support memoery cards and add a flash light for the camera and can take pics. with full screen..
Great phone, but:
-the joystick is losing the smoothness
-camera fails to start
i'll take it to service and hope to solve this problems. because i like k500
can anyone tell me any difference in k500 and k508 i have k508 and when the silent mode is on the camera sutter sound doesnt make noise if any one can tell me that if this is only difference between these two because i have read opinions about k500 and they say shutter sound remains unquiet after silent mode please tell me on my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
overall good, if this K500 have enough memory and bluetooth.. I'm sure it will be good then K700. k700 is something liek old style compare to K500. k500 is stylist phone... very good. lets go for it....
To "Silent" the shutter sound, call any free-number (eg. your service operator hotline), make sure the line is thru', goto camera function, and take pics.
To make Recorded sound as ringtone:-
(1) Goto "Entertainment" - "Record Sound" (then record whatever sound u want. Ensure that the source of the sound is near to the phone).
(2) "Save" - "More" - "Rename" [rename the file if u want] - "OK"
(3) "More" - "Recorded Sounds" [there is list of recorded filenames. Go to the one that u renamed before.
(4) "More" - "Manage Files" - "Move to folder" - "Sounds" - Exit to the main by pressing "Enter" button 2 seconds.
(5) Go to "Settings" - "Sounds & Alerts" - "Ringtone" - then select the file u have transfered previously.
hi to everyone, been stress testing K500i for quite a while, and this are the comments.. if you need to transfer data, mp3s, anything, either use a usb infra or irda stick, or buy the data cable from Sony Ericisson.
For the annoying shutter sound, try silent mode, or switch to 0volume. It works for me when i take pics in silent mode.
Anyway, here's a great site for downloads;)
(Download files to your comp, then transfer thru infra or data cable)
OK, OK. After all the comments, I juz wanna say: don't expect too much from this phone. It is juz good enough to get you going, not long though. Look on the positive side: This phone got good standby time. It could last you a couple of days before it needs recharging. The camera is okay but on night mode, it is not too good. For those who are more economical, go for this phone.
Nah..... Even when the volume is zero and silent mode is on, the camera still makes that sound.....Thanks for your help by the way.
hey can u guys can record a sound n set as ring tone? wat abt in k300 and does dis cell have bluetooth???????????
K500i and K508i comparison...
cool_ccw : u can shut the camera shuttle,if silent mode still cannot,try turn the volume to zero.may be its help.
Hey! I've just bought this phone and I think it is cool! The only thing I regret is the resolution of the screen. Even the nicest picture will turn into a bunch of pixels when viewing with this phone. Other than that, the camera will play a loud sound when you capture a pic. Anybody can tell me how to turn off the sound? No, silent mode won't help.....
