Ive used alot of phones and this phone is BY FAR my favourite phone ive EVER owned and it has definetly converted me to a Sony Ericcson fan. This phone does and has everything youll ever need. Its very comfortable, very stylish and turns alot of heads. I hacked mine to the w610 firmware which is a great idea if youre looking to use the music player or have awesome flash menus. all can be done for free or at wotanserver.com
The Mp3 player is nice and outputs amazing sound on my $100 sony headphones, on top of that, if you end up flashing it or de-branding it you can download a wide variety of games and themes all for free and all of them work brilliantly!
The only problem i found with it is the way I hold my phone i press the camera capture button which oddly disables the 4 and 6 keys, so to text message i need to reposition my hand to stay away from that button, but no big deal at all
As far as the camera goes ive seen alot better quality on alot of phones offering a 2.0mp, for some reason the pictures turn out grainy and not as clear as you'd expect them to be. Perhaps theres some drives out there that solve this issue. But keep in mind, its a PHONE not a digital camera!
As for the features and functionality its very very nice. The menu is fast (unlike the old nokia LAGGY menus) this is a big plus for me since I hate any kind of delay when trying to access something on my phone! Everything is laid out in a very organized fashion, once you experience Sony's OS you'll know what im talking about. its FLAWLESS!
I HIGHLY reccommend this phone, i will probably ALWAYS be a Sony Ericsson owner, im that impressed. NOKIA you have alot of work to do, Symbian is played out and very very over rated, do some changes and have a look at what Sony is doing because theyre doing it right!
Highly Recommended A+ Thankyou SE for such an amazing phone
if the antenna is located at the bottom and its reception is bad... i rather buy the w200i, and im so discourage with the antenna of this phone...
How can you put protection on the phone? it says change the old code? where to get the old code from? from the service providers or the mobile company might know? please help...

what?? the internal antenna located at the below/ lower part of the phone?? is it true?? not above the camera lens area?? what a pity if it's true..
Anybody facing an overheating problem with K550s? My battery really heats when I talk on the phone for a long time. To the point that it gives me headaches.
SE k550 is a very good phone .. but in my country accesories and extra memories are tough to find. since i pluged a 2gb card(max in romania) the battery started to discharge a bit faster. however it`s nice to use and works fast

is mini-cybershot in a
and hissing and
buzzing sounds of
which is much better

plz answer me through
posting ur opinions ..
The phone itself is great but there are some setbacks to it..
1. There is no zooming while taking photos.
2. Antenna is in the bottom of the phone, causing it to have lower reception.
3. When texting, the key pad makes it necessary to use your nails to text instead of your fingertips.
can anyone tell me how does it works...
i would like to buy the phone ist valid for me... do reply...
Can any user tell me how is camera and is there zoom in it with normal screen ? How much memory does it support without hanging?
Hey ya all! Can this phone open .sis files? Please.. I really need answers.
Also, plz suggest how much memory it can accept without burdon on it. Pls respond.
Hi people. Happy New Year.
Yaar, planning 2 buy this one but a confusion regarding camera. Does it have zoom or not. Like k 750 i, "zoom is available on small screen only", Does it same with k 550 i or not.
Please, any owner of k550, suggest. Thanks
