The phone is great in its class. Here are things that you should take note:
1. get the latest firmware: version R2AE033
2. there is a sound when taking pictures and there is no way of turning it off -except if your firmware is old
3. picture quality is descent - a little grainy
to marius: the t630 is actually better in my oppinion, even though it has less available memory. I have not owned K500 and not planning to, mostly because of the design - t630 looks a whole lot better than this thing.
I suggest all new buyers to buy k500i without any fear. U will never loose.it is better than t630 bcoz t630 has some errors and its repute is clean:)
So go ahead !!!!!
Its a coool phone with all features.I was so confused and searched for 4 months on internet.It has all qualities.It dont seems as beautiful as it really is.It is a cute set with all amazing features.Its keypad light is yellowish instead of orange and it enhances its charm.It is a smart and cute phone.
But only i wanna know that where is its USB port and if there is another method to transfer my pics from mobile to computer instead of infrared???
This phone is really good. Lookwisw is not up to the mark but rest is fine.
Good phone. I'm selling this phone in arian infotech (Gurgaon,India) and I'm getting excellent response from customers.
plz i want buy a data cable & software of k500i sony ericson mobile plz help me
what will you choose between k500i and t630? in matter of batery, functions and durability. i know the k500i has more options but it does'n have bluetooth, i've also heard the paint around the screen exfoliates.... sa did anybody owner both of them? can anyone say witch is better?
i think the phone is great but if i record something then how do i go back and hear it ??? i'm trying to find out **** cheap and very handy
Well, I agree that its a cheapo phone. But then E(k?)700 is also not so expensive. Actually, if there is no limit on price, every one would buy the most expensive phone.
War.. this is really a great phone.Although,camera quality are bad than nokia 3220,no bluetooth,no radio,no memory card slot,ugly design.Just the mp3 fuction consider canbe used.
Bought a K500i (Silver color) last week. It cost me Rs 12,700/- (equal to about 210 USD) in Pakistan. Initially I was looking for a phone in the Rs 5-10k range. But this phone was soo much better than the ones in 10k range that I decided to go over budget.
I think it is a cool phone. Would have been much better if three things were also there, namely, a memory card slot, an FM radio, and Blue tooth.
