Check this page:
As you can see, this page includes a full list of all K750 released firmwares with a detailed specification, fixes & bugs list for each one of them, you should compare your current working firmware in your device with the latest one -as you directly update to the latest one and there's no option to select which firmware to update to- and then make up your mind, if you'll actually need to update or not -you can see down that page how to check your current working firmware and a brief lines about how to manually update the firmware-.
Updating the firmware is basically done for 2 things, solving/eliminating bugs and increasing performance rate, if you don't face any bugs, and the added features just aren't interesting enough for you, then staying with your current firmware is highly recommended.
Remember, any fix done/performance boost/added feature in a given firmware, is automatically present in later firmwares plus the new things -fixes and performance boost- in that new firmware, it only differs in bugs, as a firmware could have a bug, and a later firmware -even if it doesn't include a fix to that bug- could not have it at all, also, bugs do happen in some cases with some people, it doesn't happen to all devices.

You needn't a courtesy to post an answer, I'm not the creater/owner or even an admin. in this forum, I'm just a regular SOMEONE just as anybody here, you and everybody else is free to write whatever he want whenever he want -of course about K750 only and NOTHING else-.
Several days ago I was tripping because I saw lots of people actually were participating, and everone wrote what he knew.
I STRONGLY encourage everyone to write an answer if he were sure about it, or any comment he would like to post about K750 -including comments on my posts itself-.
- Good, my next question was going to be "are you using IE ??", now since you've solved the problem yourself, I have nothing but to salute you.
- Check my post addressed to "MIA" above this posting, there you'll find a link you asked for.
- About "C" button question, no, you just press it before you plug the cable and keep pressing it while you're plugging the cable untill "Found New Hardware Wizard" starts then you remove your finger, and untill the update process starts to download it's stuff.
- USB cable should be left connected to the PC all the time, it will be just a useless cable untill the phone is plugged in it, so leaving it connected to the PC won't affect anything.
- Regarding uninstalling/reinstalling everything, you know what does it sounded in my head, it sounded as if someone is facing a problem with his modem and to solve that he played with his sound card driver settings, use that big ball above your neck man, if the problem is your installing procedures, the program wouldn't have started from the beginning cause it's not installed properly, and when any flash player problem faced, your work has to be with your OS to solve it, as it's what contains the flash player, not the updating suite.
- There are "Inbox" "Drafts" "Outbox" "Sent messages" "Saved messages" & "Templates" folders, and you say no folders ??!! It's just you can't create new folders to store your messages into, and that differs totally than your phrase structure/syntax.
- I'm not sure if that supposed to happen or not as I don't own a bluetooth headset, so I'm gonna leave that to every bluetooth owner in here to tell you if that's normal or not, if you can't wait, contact SE directly about it.
I don't think that you really have 20 MB free in your MS and another 20 MB free in the shared memory -if that's the case, contact SE about it-, I think it's more like 19 MB free in the MS and 1 MB free in the shared memory -or vice versa as I don't actually remember where the files are automatically stored-, then 19+1 = "20 mb,for shared n external memory" ;)
I think you got it now, just remove some data from the shared memory to the MS -or the opposite, just remove from the most full to the most empty-, when you receive a file via bluetooth the phone automatically stores it into one of it memories -eithet the MS or the shared memory, as I said, I don't actually remember-, not into the most empty one.

I'm not very sure too, if it was a firmware bug in bluetooth connection lines/codes, it would have hanged in all bluetooth connections, or it can be that the bluetooth receiver isn't compatible with Moto v3 one.
Maybe a firmware issue, maybe a hardware one, experiment is the best evidence/proof, try to update the firmware, if it worked, then there's the answer.
2: Never happened to me, could be a faulty lens, firmware bug or you just move your hand before the actuall picture is taken.
Check my post addressed to "vino" in my posting in page 3 or 4.
Are you really still looking for an answer, I think it's pretty obvious itself.
In my bundled CD, windows ME in minimum for the "PC Suite", I don't know if there's another updated version that supports Win.98 -not sure if that version you're talking about is the latest one or not-, more lickely Win.98 won't be supported in latest versions, you know they move forward, not backward.
I think so, though you can't find any themes site with both models in the same page, but both models have the same display with the same size/dimensions, give it a try anyway.
*** URGENT HELP REQD ***
Can anyone kindly let me know, whether or not is it possible to install the PC Suite on Windows 98?
I had tried by installing MS DCOM 1.3 for 98 in my OS first, but even that did not work.
I have looked through the thread and havnt received any info on the same. So if it has been already discussed and I have overlooked that, I apologize for the same.
Prompt response would be greatly appreciated :).
im also one of those who wud say dat SE is really a gud vendor. k750i is full of features. but like nothing can be perfect so is k750i.
1: cover is not solid. its giving squeaky sound almost from everywhere,specially below camera.
2: sometimes,pictures taken get pissed of. such pictures turn to totally black images.
3: Bateery life is not satisfactory. specially, camera and media player sucks.
4: one of my prime reasons for buying k750 was its picture quality. but i think im screwed. even compared to Nokia 7610's images r sharper than k750's.(7610 is 1mp while k750 is 2mp). either i dont know the settings,or my particular set is faulty...i dont know. can any one here tell me what magic to spell to make it rite?
i had that very same problem occur with my k750 to a v3 im not entirely sure why sorry
it woorked! i made it work. i knew i wasn`t stupid :D:"D
the problem was that i ws installing flash player trough firefox [as i never use IE] and when i tryed from IE it worked!!!!
where can i check what`s the last software released?
mine now is R1BC002
IS THAT NORMAL ?
10x again for allll the help sony erickson is da best!!!!
been using this phone for the last 2 months....easy to navigate, intuitive to use and well priced (at least when i bought it)...only 1 small niggle...it hung on me twice when i was transferring stuff from a moto v3 to it by bluetooth...could it be a firmware problem? i don't use the bluetooth often so it's not a big thing for me...
other than that, it's excellent and definitely much better a phone than the v3 be it i or x...just not as sexy a form factor...
actually this fone is awesome..
can someone help me, what is wrong wif mine.cos i cannt receive file using bluetooth..but the weird thing i can send to other ppl..sometime it says memory is full.but when i check the memory it still has 20 mb,for shared n external memory.. can someone pls ans me...pls...
oh, whatever don`t answer my stupid question, i reinstalled everything and it still gives me this stupid mesega..
if you could just give me the exact link for the flash player? after you hit the download button?
10x again and sorry for all the posts
It is a very good phone. There are two main problems. There are no folders for messages (archieve, inbox). Second thing: I can not silent an incoming call if blutooth headset is on.
i think k750i is the best phone for entertainment cos it has stuff like video dj and such a good camera , video is ok , mp3 player great , battery very good.
i got myn at xmas and use it everyday im suprised it isnt worn out , i got 4 mem cards for it ,
now i`m really sorry but i have another question. i pressed the "c" key very tidly and i connected the phone to the pc , the found new hardware window appeared...and then my phone switched itself on.
is that normal? i tried several times and that`s what happens...
and the site you gave me was www.macomedia.com
did you mean macromedia.com?
cuz in macomedia.com i didn`t find flash player at all...
and when i click on the flash player icon in the bottom of macromedia.com it sends me to a page where i have to click on a "download now" button and then i asks me if i want to save it to my pc...
whatever i`m sure that i hame all the macromedia players now...
i don`t understand the thing with presing the c button..should i press it before i connect the phone to the pc, after i connect it or all the time ?and should i continu pressing it while i`m instaling the new hardwares?...
i started all from the beggining...i removed all and i installed the pc suit...now i should install the update trough usb driver or whatever thing from the sonyericsson.com site, right? and then all the new hardwares?
and one more thing is it a problem if the usb cable is connected to the pc while i`m doing all this? [the phone isn`t connected]
thanks for the help i will wait for you to tell me what to do before i do anything!
sorry i`m very stupid...but i just can`t do it alone :(
this is courtesy Doul. Yeah, it will work fine. K 750i does support a 2gb mem stick duo pro. ENJOY!
PS: This is my first answer here after prolly a hundred posts...lol.
thnks very much for ur reply..plz can u tell me 1 more thing,is it necessary 2 update de firmware?whats the differance if i dnt update de firmware n how can i update it?
Actually I don't DOWNLOAD and INSTALL flash player on my PC.
I just go to their site, click on the link I told you about, I click on "Download Now" in the instructions page which opens after clicking on the link, then they direct me to another page with this text "When you see the installation completion movie above and text below, your installation was successful. The installation should only take a minute or two on a 56k modem", I wait untill I see "flash player has been installed successfully on your PC" or something similar like that, and that's it.
Try it that way, and it should work.
Well, sunlight won't affect your actuall LCD, simply because it doesn't get to the LCD, the protective glass reflects the most of it, but the high brightness level of the LCD makes the letters still readable -for somehow, depends on the used theme color and level of brightness-.
As for the camera, I don't think that playing with it for a long time will decrease it's performance.
Bottom line is, SE is a tier-1 mobile maker -same as Nokia, Motorola, Samsung and others-, their products are high quality ones, they manufacture it with high quality pieces, so you should expect the longest working time -it's not a toy to be ruined/busted/wasted after a couple of hours-.
Do you really still need an answer ??!!
The fast access "media player/radio/last used" button is only active when the headset is plugged.
Install the PC Suite from the bundled PC -with the phone not plugged in the USB cable- then restart your PC, go to www.sonyericsson.com, choose region, country and language, go to support page, select "K750" model, search for something like "USB Cable Driver Update", download it.
Now switch off your phone, press and hold "C" key -press it tight- and plug the USB cable into the phone, "Found New Hardware Wizard" should start now -if it didn't and the phone switched itself on, then you weren't pressing "C" key tight enough-, found new hardware will start to install about 4-6 -can't remember for sure- devices, and will ask you if you have an installing CD/driver, in the first one just point to the USB driver update which you just downloaded, for the rest of the found hardware just point to the bundled PC.
Now, you'll find a drive named "Removable Disk" beside your optical disks, that's the memory stick of the phone, open it and open "MSSEMC" folder and you'll find a pre-defined folders for each media/data type, just move every file to it's assigned folder -for MP3's, copy them into the MP3 folder located into "audio" folder and not the early found "MP3" folder-.
You'll also find "Sony Ericsson File Manager" on your desktop, this contains your shared memory data, also similar to MS case, a pre-defined folder for each data type is located into "phone memory' two folders.
You transfer data/files to the MS and shared memory using the regular copy/paste method, just as simple as that.
I recommend copying to the MS because it's way faster than the shared memory in read/write/access time, and you can move the transfered data from MS to the shared memory internally in the phone menu itself -read the manual to know how to do so-, this will be faster than directly copying to the shared memory -I assume-.
