Hi, I have a joy stick problem with my K750. There are times when my the DOWN action of the joy stick just does not work while all aother work fine. After a few minutes or hours the DOWN will start to work again. Thsi happens on and off and is quite a problem for scrolling through functions like the directory. The SONY Service guys tell me that this is because of large amount of data in the phone, but I just have 256MB card which is half empty. Please HELP what should I do?
Straight to the point. The phone is all around great with great options, user interface. Camera awesome for mobile phone. Im a great fan of sms from Nokia phones but this does great too. Here's pros, cons:
camera (great), a flash that works best that i've seen so far, flash can be used as lamp "flashlight" (comes in handy), sound, themes, all necessary items in organizer (great), screen (above avg.), cool thing is can use pictures not only as picture ID for calls but incoming sms. I've never seen that in other phones. For that feature go to "settings" then "New Events" and select "Pop-Up" and waaLAAAH u have nice pictures for calls and sms.
Joystick was great at first, now problems, some days works fine, others terrible. Sometimes certain directions dont work at all and must be pushed extremely hard. Definitely a fault in this model. Keep this in mind before purchasing cause its quite often. Girlfriend has same problem with same phone.
Other than that, awesome all round phone, If your patient enough wait till k610i comes out.
can somebody tell me if this phone's general usage gets slower if u put a 1 GB card or is it better to have a 512 MB?
Please reply at the earliest since i am planning to purchase memory within the next 2-3 days.
Unfortunately.You cannot shut the sound of camera shutter. Not even when the phone is in silent mode.
hey guys.i had ke k750 too but i don't know how can i shutdown camera shutter sound.helllllp plz?
I forgot to mention that the credit of the second link in my posting to "agg" goes to "zendrix".
Who said that you can't set WAV files as ring tones ??
You can use WAV files as normal as you can use any MP3 file -setting it as ringtones, messages alerts, alarm signals and contact ringtone- as long as that WAV file has an audio sample rate of 16 KHZ at MAXIMUM.
That means that you can also play it back in the media player normally.
get out of screen saver/clock mode by pressing the back key -or by pressing * then (Unlock) right soft key if you have the key bad locked- and then press one of the two volume keys on the right side of phone, a "Phone status" menu will be opened indicating the "Free memory" on the shared memory and the "Memory Stick", if you can't see the line of "Memory Stick" free space then your phone can't identify the MS and you should replace it.
If you can see the status of the MS then it's working properly and nothing wrong with it.
To copy/move files into it, just select those files and click "More", then go to "Manage files" and click on "Copy/Move to ext.mem".
The blue & black phone icon and the white MS icon beside each file indicates where that file is stored in.
I got your point straight, I just mixed up with you and "zendrix", he was the one who faced the issue of not working installed applications, not you.
Also you may google for any other free sites.
If you're sure that you got all the GPRS packages from both SE web site and your service provider installed on your phone, then "Nicole" is making a point here, only if she really meant the describtion "sometimes" !.
Some unidentified one says that he hates something yet he is NOT ONLY owns a single unit of that thing -then selling it just when he found that it doesn't fit his/her profile- but he also got a second unit !! -for I can't really stomach the idea of bying two units of the same exact thing at the same time, this isn't an SLI/CrossFire system you know !-, not only that, but he actually STILL own them till now !!
WTG person, Very brilliant indeed :S
If you're a husband and buy two devices of the same thing for you and your wife, just remember not to fall into the same mistake again !
hey guys can you help me with this one. is a k750i better than a w800? hope you reply cuz im planning to buy a phone tom.
It does that to me sometimes. It does it to me because I'm PAYG and I have less than 50p credit.
every time i try to connect to internet in the video, picture, games or sounds menu (u knw, where it says sony ericsson at top of list) it says: connection failed. checknetwork coverage or data and internet settings. wot have i got to do?
@DoUL, You might might understood my post. I said my programs install perfectly when I drop them to Phone Memory/Phone Memory/Other. I just drop the "jar" files there and then using the phone I go to File Manager->Other and the program appears there. I just select it and click Install on the phone :) Works flawlessly.
im having troubl with my memory stick, the handset didnt come with the 64mb card so they gave me a 256 sony pro duo stick, but when i insert it in the phone it doesnt seem to do anything and all my mp3s, pictures n videos... are saved on handsets memory! whats wrong? do i need to changea setting? iv lookd n cant seem to find nd settings sayin handest memory or memory stick memory! please help
I know that we cannot set wav files as ringtones but Can the K750i play wav files through the media player.
Maybe that's the reason of the application installing failure from the beginning, that you don't have enough memory for the application to be installed in.
You know the install-shield package is always compressed, and that compression is extracted in the installation process.
Try to free some space and give it a try, or maybe it failed to install it just because the package was corrupted.
Connect the phone to your PC, open the folders that contains the files which you want to delete -whether from the "Removable Disk" if those files were stored in the MS or from the "Sony Ericsson File Manager" if they were stored in the shared memory-, simply select them and click delete.
Video resolution has nothing to do with the price, resolution simply is the width and hight of the videos that are played on your screen.
First, the joystick is very sensitive, seems to me that you're simply not touching it but FIGHTING with it with your thumb -that's why it aches you-, just try to tough it very smoothly and it will react to your touch very nicely -if you're still having the down direction not working then the joystick either were a faulty unit from the beginning or you just ruined it with your hard pushing, either ways it can be replaced-.
Second, they thought that giving the ability to directly send the contact -as SMS or picture message- will be easier to the user than writing an SMS and inserting the contact into it -they could be wrong but that's how they thought about it !-.
Third, there are slots for a Title, Company, Street, City, State, Zip code, and Country and you still say "There is not field for postal address" !!! That Zip code is basically the alternative to the postal code in some countries, you don't need to write down the whole address, you just write the name of the recipient person/company along with that postal/Zip code on the letter and it will arrive -at least that's how it works here in Egypt !-.

3. Already said why is that in my post addressed to "shibatian".
4. It takes only 2 hours to become fully charged -just 4 hours of charging at the first time, then some "2 hours" charging time -as the manual says !- before the "Fully charged" indicator starts to show after 1.5-2 hours of charging -at least that happened with me and I charge my phone when it automatically switch off and I keep it switched off while charging-.
6. Just as the media player you can minimize it and use the phone normally, and it's not the phone fault that you don't see the "More" button !.
8. You certainly can, select the message from the "Outbox" or "Sent messages" folder, click "More", click on "Details", move the joystick down to select the number to which you sent the message, click "More" and then click on "Save number".
ALL READERS, please make sure of what you're going to write before writting it not to EMBARRASS yourself when writing WRONG information and stating them as FACTS for I will not let it pass !
Just got my k750i as i was craving for some decent phone with mp3 playback and nice ring tone.
I was impressed my the camera as well as well as the mp3 playback.
However, i was very very disappointed with the usability.
1. Unable to set Caller groups ring tone. U have to set it individually on each contact.
2. Need to switch language inorder to insert Chinese character.
3. Unable to insert name or phone number into the text message.
4. Takes long long time to charge.
5. Unable to switch radio channel using headset. you have to do it with the phone
6. when radio is on, u cant do anything else on ur phone.
8. When u send an sms to a person who is not in ur contact list, you cant add that keyed in number on to your contact list.
As a ex Siemens s65 user, i am highly disappointed with the usability. Hope they can do something about it for the future phones.
I just bought k750i. Actually I was debating in my mind to buy k750i or N70, finally i still decided to buy k750i cos it is cheaper.
However, despite the good review, I am pretty much disappointed.
Some bad review:
First, the joystick is not as user-friendly. After a while, my thumb is aching. And it is also not sensitive, esp navigating down.
Second, the writing of sms is not friendly like nokia. It does not allow me to insert names or number.
Third, the contact is disappointing. There is not field for postal address but there are fields for title, company etc. Dun understand the rationale behind. The company address field is also very limited in the amount of characters to be entered.
Fourth, the camera is activated when the shutter is accidentally slide open despite I have phone lock it. This is very dangerous.
Some good reviews:
1. The data cable can be used for battery charging. This is quite useful as I dun have to bring my charge to everywhere I go.
I have had my fair share of mobile phones over the years but this K750i really rocks.
I used to own a samsung d500 but i the Ericsson K750i knocks spots of that. Its 2mega pixel camera is crystal clear and the phone even has an s.o.s facility built into the flash...how cool is that.
I was quite fond of the T610, but if you have not tried the k750i your missing out.
Ericsson even supply you a data cable for direct uploading/downloading of files straight to the pc,
My view: This phone is certainly state of the art and carries mobile technology into the 21st century
