Well you should try this:
Go into the menu then settings and then to display and go to light. Powersave must be selected. Change it to automatic and you will get the clock and reminders.
I own a K800i previously but "downgraded" to the new K550i recently. No doubt, K800i is superior where camera functions are concerned but 550i is much much slimmer and slicker. However, now that I own 550i, can somebody tell me how to get the time/new message icon/missed call icon floating on display while the phone's on idle (when the screen blanks out after screensaver)?
Press Menu then Press 9 (or goto Settings). Scroll down when on the General tab to Security. You will find Automatic Keylock in there.
Hi I'm looking for a phone to buy and I'm between Z710 - K550, so any comparison would be welcome. There 's also a question that comes to my mind. Currently I have the T230 -ancient :P- mobile. Sometimes I may be too busy and have only one hand free to pick up the phone. So I' m wondering if the clamshell will be any problem and whether it’s really functional , as I’ve never had a phone with one before.
What I'm looking for is a phone with a quite good camera (not a professional one, I know I'm buying a phone), bluetooth and not having any major problems.
Also, as far as I understand Z710 comes with a better battery. Is it true?
Thanx in advance.
Phone is really great! Style, Technic,Optic...Cam is great stuff! Stand by over 9 days. equipment compatibel with all new phones.
@kelvin: k790/k800/k810 have xenon flash. maybe be weaker but its still xenon.
@carbonize, sorry if i asked that question again, its just that you have used techy terms which im unfamiliar with. anyways my friend had her sew810 and its great. but im really not used to its orange illumination. maybe if i could also try the se550 or the sek800 (is it a good fone?) then only i can decide which fone to buy. i think to try and test the fone makes or break one's decision. thanx for the replies and info @carbonize!
does this mobile has chat capability.bcoz in one review i noticed it had chat facility
@ad07 and others - As I did say in my original post it comes with stereo earphones attached to the dongle. These are bog standard ear phones unlike the ear buds you get with the walkman series of phones.
And yes it does come with a USB cable. Don't all phones these days ?
i got a k550 and it got the same problem , it does not recive incoming calls , all outgoing are possible when it shows network , but network is not allways on display , is it a software problem? or hardware?
just wanted to convey some technical stuff regarding the camera in all mobile phones. First of all, the essential component in photography are the lightning conditions around. Well I do own a sony digital camera of 6 mgpxl. And I also have found that when the light is bad and if I don't use the flash the photos are very very noisy and poor. So what makes the difference is the light. And that is where a flash has its role.
i tell u guys that no mobile camera can produce such great light with a flash as a digital camera flash does. Thats why all mobile cameras are bad in night and low lightning conditions. The flash provided cannot match the digicam flash, which is so intense.
But if u compare the photos in daylight , then they are very good and match the digicam clarity.
So accept the fact that a mobile camera cannot match a digital camera. ( But it does in outdoor pics due to good light )
My K550i is no exception.Outdoor photos are great but the indoor photos and night pics are very very noisy , and the reason is the absence of a powerful flash !!!!! . What K550i and all walkmans have is a photolight and it does'nt provide a great deal of light.
SO to conclude, the cybershot K550i takes great outdoor pics, but very bad and unusable at night conditions, unless the room has decent light around.
Hey. I have this phone for a week now. All the functions are OK except a very important one: from time to time, it cannot receive incoming calls - like it would be shut down. After I restart it, it goes OK for a few hours, then again: no incoming calls. Outgoing calls are possible all the time, no problems. I changed the SIM and the problem persists. Can anyone PLEASE tell me what happens? TY
Yes, earphones are included, but no memory stick.
K750i cam is much better than K 550...
another thing k550 is soo sensitive and sound quality is very low compare to K750 soo dont buy this phone its my suggestion.
