Yes! you can buy this phone in Shanghai. I bought mine here and it really works perfect. I can rate this phone 10/10.
Help! the silver coating of the keypad is peeling off... anyone knows where and how to have them replaced.. thanks a million.
Hi, I wonder if I get a K550c from China, am I able to use the phone in Canada? I actually thinking about getting this phone, also is it possible that there might be some K550i in China,Shanghai?
just bought a white version, and all i can say is WOW.. overall very good phone, except for the keypad which takes time to get used to.. 10/10
It Is The Best Phone In The World.I Like It Most.Because It Is Very Handsam,Powerful,Colerful....
..HP Ranatunga..Sri Lanka..
ok sooo i am either going with this or w810........... which has a louder ring tone?? which is bigger?????? DOES THE K550 HAVE A DECENT RING TONE LOUDNESS? like in my purse will i hear it??????????? please i am purchasing today! thanks
check this video you'll understand what is flash menu theme... since k550i cant support flash file (.swf) so there is no way to change the menu like w610 did, unless u flash it to w610 (high risk).
what is the .swf file???? of flash theme> i found themes i would like for this phone which i am EITHER PURCHASING A K550 OR W810I TOMORROW----CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHICH IS A BETTER BUY FOR CAMERA AND LOUS RINGTONES??!?!?!?! on zedge.net i found themes i love... but what are swf ones?
for the k550i review ,gsm areana said the web browser did not live up to the challenge ,there I relized that their beta version was an (i-mode)so should i buy yet
I just owned this phone for one week. Before bought it, i have considered so many things, including the design (keypad, camera lens cover), features (sound, flash), and performances as compare to other SE phones.
In my opinion, it is a great value phone. It has all the features you want. I don't think 3G is a necessary feature. In fact, its internet connection boost by Edge. Very fast.
The phone itself come with 75mb internal (new phone without useless items).
Well, the sound quality not as good as walkman, but i'm satisfy with it.
Display - vivid 262k color and cool. It is TFD technology, save power. Battery can long lasting more than 50 hours; including listen to radio, music, capture picture with flash on, sms, few calls, games, bluetooth for sending media, watch video, and surf internet. One thing i'm very dissapointed is this phone doesnt support flash (.swf) menu theme (flash it to w610 could be risky for me).
Cyber-shot - wow it sounds very nice trademark. However, it lack of image stabilizer, else it would be perfect. The photo u took u'll notice blur if ur phone shake a little bit. Overall the camera is great but not the best 2.0 mp class camera. It has night mode (switch to twilight scene), i wonder why people here say it doesn't offer night mode. When capture picture at night, not that bad with dual LED flash + night mode on.
Keypad. At first, i thought this keypad very lousy and ugly design. But when stick to this phone few days, feel like very nice design and the keypad not a big problem. Although play game and sms are a bit trouble.
In summary, this phone is value to buy with such cool features packed all together although is not 100% perfect. In fact, things wont get 10/10 perfect.
Currently, SE has their own cyber-shot, walkman series phone... hopefully, one day they also manage to design psp (tradmark) series phone (for games purpose, haha).
ok thanks!!! my friend had an old w800 lying @ and let me use it to see if i like it and i do except the joystick..... im used to HUGE phones looking for something smaller and compact but the keys on the k550 seem diff.... well u solved my problems haha now its btwn the k550 and 810..... i will choose one! hey ONE MORE QUESTION lol i know im bugging u but which screen do u know is bigger? and i see the 550 is skinner but is it super slim?? im one of the few who like fat phones!!!
I was just wondering how much memory capacity this phone is able to read/use? I checked sony ericsson's site and it says the max is a 2gb m2 card, but my sister recently bought the w580i and she has a 8gb m2 card that works when the max for that phone was also listed at 2gb capacity. If someone can clarify for me that would be appreciated. Thanks
well i dont know much abt other phones but yes k550 is gem of a phone, it can play any media file u give it and it will play it. you can set as ringtones any file format mp3,wav,midi,mp4 or any other. it has a good speaker specially clear, and yes track id does need gprs connection as it sends information over the air but it isnt so useful. but i tell u this is a very stylish phone doesnt look so expensive like nokia n series but yes its eye catching. the metallic keys does make a impact..... the only thing i dislike abt this phone is that the stock earphones are not very comfortable in your ears, but walkman phone earphones are great they fit so well in your ears and produce very good sound effect they also work well with the k550i but u obviously need to buy them and yes the stock earphones are good in sound quality just not comfortable in the ears...
i hope this will solve ur confusion, i just tell u one thing i bought this phone a month or so ago and before buying it i was really confused just like u, but i am very happy that i choose this phone....
seems i am writing too much, anyways make up ur mind and choose a good phone.......
omg i am having phone problems!!!!!!!! i do like the candybar style and now i can not decide between the w810....or......w850....or k500>?!?!?! can u use mp3 as ringtones on alll these? AND track id...does it require internet to use that feature. i am from a small town in tx and no store has any of these phones so i have to go by eye. I LOVE BIG phones like w850 but i want to try candybar style..... im so confused!@ ohh and thanks =)
i bought this phone last week after of months of gathering info about this phone.i am really sattisfied,i had everything i want, the camera is ok specially in the morning! you cannot get as beautiful as this with nokia phone with that budget..
@ the lankan guy
i cant help much but just take this link may be thats what u are searching for......
well both phones are really good but w850 has an upperhand as it has a bigger display, a secondary cam, it has 3g both have good picture quality and since both are walkman phones they will definately have a great sound. but remember w850 has a sliding form factor so may be u need to keep a bit out of ur child's hand. and yes congrats in advance for both the phone and the new born baby......
