Thanks for updating me about the screen size of SE k750i. But now I am eyeing for SE K800i becuase it screen size is 2.0 inch. and camera is 3.2MP, WOW! . Hey u seem kinda guru with SE mobile phones. Could u tell me the SE does provide any resale value for old phone. That is if I purchase K750i and want some discount on K800i(not yest launched). Plz help me since K750i is my long time dream phone. What I upset is the screen size. Wish if would have been bigger like Nokia 3230 or SE S700i.
After updating firmware, my k750's GPRS is working also other problems are solved.
Thanks for ur advice.
But its web browser is very poor ,not as good as symbian.In default browser GPRS speed is very low & some specific web page it cann't open,in Opera mini browser speed is good but can not download anything, save option does not appear.Is there any another perfect browser ?

i am alex from India...
is k 750i gives good GPRS spped if connnected to computer. cause it doesn't have 3G or EDGE.
In the old SEUS -the updating software-, the new firmware file used to be stored in one of Sony Ericsson folders which are located in Program Files folder under C:\ root in your system, so it was easy to get the firmware as a "stand alone" software, put it into that folder and on with the updating process, but that is no longer happening with the new SEUS, as the firmware gets directly from SE servers to your phone, without being copied into the HDD, so I guess offline updating is not possible.
I'm running on a slow dial-up 56 K modem myself, and I managed to update my firmware twice so far, it took a long time yes, but it went through all the steps successfully.
Just give it a try on your machine, and if it didn't work, just take to to any of SE customer care centers and they will do it for you in no more than 10 minutes.
I can't officially confirm it, but in my belief, nothing is not replacable, you'll have to check on that while you're buying it.
I just bought this phone offcontract for $400 and dont ever regret it totally gr8 phone. Business Phone And Fun Phone.. Best phone of the century and at the time. No better phone than this.
Hey Doul!!! You the MAN!!!! Dude, thanks so much... I'm all clear now... Think I will go in for the k750. and just out of curiosity... is that glass cover replacable? Or if it's scratched once will you have to live with it forever?
hi again.can i update my firmware ofline?
i mean is there any package that i can download it from the internet and install withot internet conection?cause my conection is low speed and it disconect ery 30 or 40 minutes.
thanks for your help. :)
Man, I don't understand the problem, please be specific.
Anyway, SEUS is a safe software with no threats at all, continue with the installation.
K750 hardware/build quality is better/higher than W800 hardware/build quality -read this page to know what I mean: http://www.mobique.com/sonyericsson/w800i/page7.php -, as for the screen, both W800 and K750 have the same (not imbedded) screen -read here: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_w800-review-47.php under "So fine" title-.
I'm not totally aware of the description (not imbedded) meaning, but as far as I understand it and to make it easier for you to understand it, look at your PC monitor edges, you'll see a thicker part of the monitor plastic/hardware itself enclosing the edges of the glass surface of the screen itself, this is to protect the screen surface when your monitor fell down on the ground, when that happens, that plastic enclosing will take the hit instead of the screen because its thicker than the glass of the screen surface, so it will reach the ground first.
K750 and W800 don't have that surrounding plastic, so if the phone fell down on the ground, the screen surface will directly hit the floor -for there's no protective surrounding thicker shield to receive the hit instead of the screen surface- causing a scratching in its glass surface -not the LCD surface itself, there's a glass layer on top of the LCD, that will be scrached-.
- You are already in the correct place, you need to download and install that "Update Service" software, you'll need to install your phone on your PC first.
For a complete instructions of how to install the phone on the PC and update its firmware, please read my post addressed to "maani" in my posting in page 7 or 8.
- There's no "Hide" option in K750 software, there's no way to hide or lock any of your data/files stored in both of the shared memory and the MS, if you have important data, make sure to store it in your PC HDD instead of the phone memory -always make a back-up for your phone memory stored data anyway just as "DJblakel" recommends-
If you're talking about the folders which are automatically created on the MS after performing a full format to it, they can't be deleted or be hidden, evertime you format the MS they will be re-created automatically again.
Thanks a lot for the info man... really apppreciate it. I'm still not very clear though... When you say it's getting scratched, is it the actual display unit or just a protective screen over the actual TFT LCD? Cuz, if it's the actual TFT LCD that's getting scratched there are big chances of permanent damages right?
please visit www.sonyericsson.com then click your country and region. then you will need yo click "product support" select your phone make and follow the instructions.. f this fails, take it to your SE dealer and let them try. you may have a faulty cable or software on your K750.
the only way to get anything back is to (as you said) re download everyhting. these can be found at www.sonyericsson.com or try http://www.myk750.lasyk.net/
here is where all your downloading needs for the k750 are :D
remember everyone. you should ALWAY back up your data before a master reset. or you will lose everything :S
sorry i have not been here in a long time.. i have alot of study on but will try and come on now and then to help you all out.
sorry, in my post below I meant "now all my themes, ring tones and games that came with the phone ARE GONE...."
Help! I made a terrible mistake. I master resetted the phone (the big one, the one that deletes everything) so now all my themes, ring tones and games that came with the phone are no gone....It's not the same as I first bought it, it has less now. Can these be re-downloaded? Themes such as "Tiles" the one that came with the phone and the rest of the ring tones and the games? Please if someone knows something please let me know, just don't ask me why I did lol. I was testing something (had some problems with the joystick) so I now I need your help to get it all back lol
I can assure you, any information leading to "re-downloading" this stuff will be greatly appreciated.
display not imbedded mean the screen is not closed in with like the shell over the top so it wont scxratch i have ahd mine 2 weeks and its scratching already which sucks heaps
i hate to break it to you but w800 has same problem there is like a screen over the screen that protects but stil scratches which is a pain but yeah
I bought this phone few days back. Its Nice.
