Just got a K500i and have question about transferring files (video/mp3) from PC to the phone using infra red port. I have infra red adapter but the video was transferred to the "Other" folder and I cannot view the video on the phone. I don't know where to put the video and/or mp3 so I can use them on the phone.
Please tell me what you do to transfer files to the phone. Which software to use? How to specify the destination folder, etc???
i have some problem in k508i regarding its phone book,when i want to reach sharjeel and i want to press "h" after "s" it directly goes to shujaat, can any one let me know how i change it in to standard form.
If you are comfortable enough with yourself not to need 'the latest this' or 'new that' like the majority of muppets in this world, this phone should do the trick. Bar the lack of bluetooth, this phone serves me well. Easy menu, easy mp3 ringtones, easy texts. I can talk to people, text them and film them, and it only cost me 35 quid. Winner!
okay. for anyone who still need this k500i as a modem /gprs modem. here's the driver :
Definitely value for my money. I love my mp3 ringtones. It's also amazing to hear U2's Bono belting out 'In the Name of Love!' as my early morning alarm. The sound is excellent and not canned & transistor radio-sounding like other famous mobile phones.
I've always been a fan of sony ericsson, my last one was T-100. And then wifey dove into her pocket to buy me this excellent instrument K508i. It was love at first sight I think (both for the wife and the phone). Great value for money. And with IR you can download what u want from ur pc or other phones. Had a little problem with the joystick. But solution on this forum, set that right too. Hey PHONEMASTER SE ought to give you a load of money. thank a ton for the tip it really works. (Another trick, blow hard into the joystick area, mind the spittle though, it works at times).
Great Features, Good Sound, Cam quality is surprisingly good only in the day though and a Fabuluous Value for Money. If you're on a budget GO FOR IT ! You can never find anything better.
well good phone. but can any one tell me how to use mp3 tones as ringtones as am not able to use it.
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
i'm gona buy this phone and i want to ask, how many days it works with full batery without recharge?
Well what can I say, basically if you want to waste some money and have to buy a new phone same time next year then you should get any of the SE phones with a joystick. I wouldn't be too annoyed if it could be fixed but this is a shocking problem which makes the phone almost totally useless. I've had mine for about a year and then joystick isnt working at all anymore and I wont be getting another SE. Of all the people Ive talked to with the same phone or similar (K500's and 700) all of them are having problems with their joysticks and 2 of them have already got new phones due to that fact alone. Now I don't want to be a total bastard but SE DOES NOT replace joysticks and this is absolute BS. I do not recommend this phone... PURELY due to the joystick!
another thank you for the tip about the joystick posted before, i was in the process of looking for a new phone, read that....and now i don't need to!
K500 is a great cellphone, very good camera, MP3 ringtone, multi tasking and TFT, this is good phone which low prices. My vote is 99.
i got this phone last christmas and i loved it to bits but unfortunately it fell down the toilet in the summer and i miss it so much its a great phone and i would reccomend it to anyone
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.
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.
