I bought K750i last week and I tried video capturing, but it allows me only 13sec clips, not more that that. Is there any way to lengthen the capture duration??
Of course you can transfer using the USB cable, it's why they supply it with the phone in the first place, to be used in transferring to/from the PC, the charging is a secondary/side option but transferring is the first purpose of the USB cable, I meant that you can use the other wireless transfer methods IF you don't like that USB cable "charging option".
I don't know the dimensions of the Nokia 3230 screen but K750 screen in diameter is 10.44 cm (square) with resolution of 176*220 and supports 262K colours -3230 screen resolution is 176*208 and supports 65K colurs-.
For video play back, K750 supports 3GP and MPEG4 formats only, you can view videos/clips in full screen with holding the phone in a horizontal way.
You can google for the supported applications for the K750 -I don't use any application with my phone myself, don't need any-, you can browse this page to take a glance about some supported applications:
You can find the disadvantages down this page -or in page two- and in page 4 of this forum -from different users personal perspectives-, you can as well read the review named "Sony Ericsson K750 review:Get excited!" to know the technical disadvantages -from the analyst perspective- and to get a more general idea about K750.
I don't really get/understand your question, but if my guessing is working correct, then no, there is no "interval" sms or call alarms, only an icon will be displayed on the screen.
Before you think about firmware updates, set the phone into silent mode before opening the lens cover and take a shot, if the sound was muted then you're done, if it wasn't muted then updating the firmware won't help you for the camera will still have that sound in the new firmware as well.
It's all about your country -whether it was strict with privacy laws or not- not a firmware problem.
Come on guys, do we need to install the PC Suite to only access the MS or not ?? Your post doesn't agree with what others have confirmed in their posts !! -I have the suite & drivers installed already and have no probs. in accessing both phone memories, but I want to know as a general piece of knowledge-.
You can take pictures of 1623*1224, 640*480 and 160*120 resolutions only.
No, as far as I know they didn't make any taking pictutes software for K750 -cause K750 own software is more than enough already-.
Night shots are always worse than day shots in any camera -even sony cybershots-, I use the following settings in night shots:
macro mode is on -I leave it on all the time anyway-, night mode off, light on, white balance depends on the picture place lighting colour whether it's fluorescent or incandescent (white or yellow) and picture quality fine.
Just always try not to use both night mode and the camera light together at the same time, and when using the night mode try to set your hand still as much as you can, and the most important thing is that you have to know/believe that no matter what we do night shots won't be better than day shots by any way/mean.
If I was gonna tell you to take it to any place other than SE own customer care centers I wouldn't have asked you about the warranty from the beginning, right ??
I'm the 4th now on the blacklist, daym, this game has some breath-taking cinematics, I had to watch the intro movie for 3 times to figure if these models/characters were actuall people or just graphics -and because I enjoyed it too much too :)-.
I already know Imtoo.
VGA resolution is 640*480, QVGA is 320*240 -can you tell the differnce between them ?? ;)-
CIF resolution is 704x576, QCIF is 176*144 -can you tell the differnce between these too ?? ;)-
LOL, it's really funny, (Q)CIF means quarter CIF, while in (Q)VGA case it means half VGA, kinda weird huh ;).
to @doul the w900i is said to have good video but it is qvga what is that and what is cif.
i asked this question as vga video is crap but never heard of qvga or cif or qcif?
thanks @doul my phone is still in warranty so do u know where to get it fixed.
@doul i play nfsmw and i am 2nd on the blacklist.
this is the link to the dvd-->3gp software it costs 29.99 to download but i have it and it is well worth it have fun here it is:
or just type in on google dvd to 3gp rip and it will be there everywhere.
@doul the settings are set up for k750i but i changed the screen to widescreen not letterbox as it plays bigger.
also look at the phone in the picture its k750i.
shahzad i have k750i and all of the things u said are untrue this phone is better than d600 and n70.
Matt and nin077 - your phones need a firmware upgrade to the latest R1A008. Go to your local SE service center to get it done and it supposed to fix this bug.
can't the phone take pics in a 1.xx resolution? do you know if there is any application downloadable that can take pictures on the phone? can you give me some advice by taking night photos? they always get a lot worst than day photos.
thx man, you do a great job helping people here :)
The charges through USB only when driver is installed,The same applies to access the memory card. This makes the the phone not as portable as you think.
Is there any way or software upgrade so that we can stop the sound which comes when we take a photo? Its bad that sony erricson have this sound with cells.
can set the phone to have interval alert, if there is any sms or miss call in the "event"..?

Great problem with Bluetooth

1) Hang for long time , then phone auto-restart
2) Wait for a moment, message prompt of 'bluetooth turn off' but the 'turn off' option is shown instead of 'turn on'..."
I have this problems too, can anybody answer what is going on??Please.
I was previously using Nokia 3230, and very fond of its larger screen for multimedia video playback, and Symbian OS software range.
Can I expect similar features in SE K750i?
Is there any third party applications for Sony Ericsson phones?
It can take up to the available 2GB memory Sony Duo Pro stick. There isn't any bigger memory card in the market yet.
whats the maximum memory siza(like 1Gb?) for the card slot can this phone take?
is it means that i can't use the USB Cable to transfer the files to my pc ?
Is charging a problem nowadays ??!!
Both your phone OS (Operating System) and the USB cable are optimized to charge the phone from your computer PSU (Power Supply Unit) whenever you plug the USB cable into the phone, you can't do anything about it because IT'S NOT HARMFUL TO YOUR PHONE AT ALL.
Still, if you don't like that, you can transfer using IrDA (Infra red) if your PC mother board have a built in IrDA receiver or using a bluetooth dongle.
i juz bought k750i last saturday. i'm trying to connect it with my pc using the USB Cable, but whenever i plug in the USB cable to the phone, it become 'charging' status, can someone help me to solve this question ?
I wrote its pros. and cons. -based on my personal opinion- about 3 days ago, you'll find the post in page 3 or 4 in this forum.
"Shahzad" also wrote the goods and bads in this phone -based on his personal opinion-, though I do have to comment on some parts of his post.
It's been confirmed then, thanks very much for the very useful information.
Maybe it's just too sensitive to you, or you were too hard in using it till damaging it, or simply you had a bad luck to get a faulty unit.
I started to think about the triangle of (Service provider, Protectd content, Firmware) once I read the first part of your post, luckily "m4m" also agrees with me, so check his post out.
About the second part of your post, I have no complaints about it at all, bluetooth technology is A VERY USEFULL tranferring method, just I have to comment or state the fact that also using the USB cable in transferring data or particularly songs/MP3's isn't bad & won't make any errors in transferred songs as long as the user used the correct procedures -such as a proper installing of the Suite and the driver with updating to the final USB driver (no need for that step now as long as you'll copy into the MS only), copying into the correct folder, and using the latest firmware-. Maybe you don't have the latest firmware, or even have it installed but still have that USB cable bug in your phone for I only use the USB cable in transferring MP3's into my phone and I can find & play all of them after removing the cable, no additional useless files, no empty files and no unplayable files, I can find all the MP3's which I copied just where I copied them and all are playable and I can delete any of them when I need to.
I have to comment on some of the bads which you say that are present in your phone.
The phone in general isn't slow at all, I invite you to play with any motorola E398 to know what SLOW MENU/PERFORMANCE really is, K750 will be slow only when you open folders that contains lots of files, especially the Pictures folder for it has to draw a thumbnail for each picture -which is pretty normal even in desktop fastest processor-, even that is a way lot faster in latest firmware according to my actual observation.
You needn't to charge the phone for more than 4 hours in first time then 2 hours later -I wrote before about my experience with Fully charged indicator that didn't start to show up in my phone untill I used the phone for a whole month, before that your phone won't display it even if you charge it or let me say OVER-charge it more than 12 hours-.
The last thing is the camera sound, in fact, you can mute it if you live in a country that isn't much strict in privacy laws carrying out, to find out if you can mute it in your current country firmware or not, simply put the phone into silent mode before opening the lens cover.
It's kinda normal, even your PC operating system -microsoft windows or any other OS- will start to act up with time, it's always an indicator that your current OS needs to be formatted and that a clean install is needed.
You need to flash your phone into a newer firmware, but if you don't want to take that risk or currently using your country/service provider latest one, all you can do about it is resetting the phone when you wake up -switch it off then wait half a minute before switching it back on again- and whenever it starts to act up with you, I reset the phone several times a day myself to maintain the highest working performance -I learned that form my windows, if I kept it idle for sometime then started to use my PC again, I find the performance rate becomes kinda slower (maybe this doesn't actually happening but I feel that) so I reset the PC to get its highest performance rate again-.
Your K750 storage capacity has nothing to do with the general performance of your phone, using a larger MS will increase the efficiency of your phone by being able to carry more files and applications, but as I just wrote a few moments ago, opening a folder with 15 files inside of it will take less time than opening a folder that contains 50 files, but it won't affect the general performance rate.
No, that was true/correct in the past, now K750 users can only flash their K750 devices into K750 firmware, so as W800 users.
No, there isn't any difference in music play back quality in both K750 and W800 devices, you'll only notice a differnce because both models uses a different model of headsets, even both models have the same loud speaker.
