About the camera not working...
I brought it to the repair shop and they fixed it. They said they cleaned the dirty part and now the camera was working once again. Good thing it was still under warranty.
i bought a new k500i.. and its cool! problem is i cant open the phonebook/contacts! it hangs when i tried... pls help! what should i do? and oh.. is there any software to use an mp3 for message alerts? thnx!
Bought this phone 2years ago...it is a pretty good phone...the stereo speaker is excellent!I also downloaded quite a number of java games application onto this phone...pity that its built in memory is only 12mb...or else i would hav downloaded even more games
I like my K500i. However, the camera suddenly stop working. When I selected the camera function, the screen turned black and then returned to the previous screen. Is there anyone who had the same problem? Does the warranty cover this kind of malfunction?
Oops! You got stiffed I'm afraid! The nokia N80 is one of their latest and most advanced phones. Has a 3mp camera! Search for it on this site...
hi my dad waas taking out a new contract and i had the choice of this or a rubbish mobile called i dont know something called nokia n80 the shop keeper my dad got the contract from said this one was better i think he is right its got a cool tennis game
I got this fone last yr but i was wondering how to turn on the bluetooth. I want more memory, I HATE THIS CRAP.
This is a really good phone; for the price it is probably one of the best. I used it for 2 years and its really good, but the analouge will not last and there is not enough memory. Its a great phone to get if u'r short on cash but if u can get a little more $$$ than the K700 is a slightly better buy.
hey k500i its a very good cell phone in a middle range ,i m using this cell phone ,i like its sound ,reception ,pictures resolation and it is a very good and preety look cell phone .
why at the camera specification the max resolution is 640x480?..the phone can make pic at 1280x960
i think this phone is the best model in mid ranged phones. its features are also excellent
It has a very bad battery backup.Need to improve on that as myself using this phone is causing lot of incovinence due to teh bad battery backup.
I have been using this phone for the last 11 months and its not given me any problem which is unusual. The camera is great(u can actually extended u pixel resolution to 1280 by 960 for better quality with more memory of course). If u take pictures at this resolution @ pictures takes about 65kb. The video is ok too, i have several clips of the river nile during my visit to Uganda and they are great. The Mp3's are great in sound quality. I downloaded several from SE website. The small memory is a con though. The messaging is great and you can multi task. At times i will let my mp3's play as i text, play a game or view a slide show of my photos!At a price of about $200 when i bought it this phone beats its competitors. Those complaining about the joystick shouldnt disqualify this phone for that minor problem. I encountered some problems and solved them as follows;
-If the phone is unable to open a java application especially the games, press and hold the return key and exit, then turn off the phone and restart it. Once you do this the games will run ok. This i realized was occuring after several times of charging, about every 3-4 times. You can avoid freezing during a game by switching the phone off after several times of charging.
-If the pictures in your folders are not appearing, instead a graphic is appearing (occurs after a long time viewing the pictures or after charging). Just close all the programs and shut the phone off and restart. Immediately your pictures will appear.
The video files that u r sendind via IRDA are not 3gp of mp4 that is y they goto "Others" folder.As K500i only support 3gp & mp4 video files so try to send these files i m sure that they will open.
This phone is brilliant.. cute and gorjus! It's extremely good at every feature it has.. esp the pin protected memo, it's such a clever lil thing! The phone is definitly impressive.. and with it's inra red being able to transfer data... and not to forget the cable, it's has just evrything you cld want in a phone! the features are really good and the games are of fantasttic quality. the phone is easy to use and simple in design and especially to hold! Like all sony erricson the back of the phone shows quality thru the design. the phone in general is defintly a phone worth having!
