To upgrade the firmware your phone must be fully charged! Here it is in full of the SE website! Try reading it ont heir website too at: http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=gb&lc=en&ver=4000&template=ps1_1_5_7&zone=ps&lm=ps1_1&pid=10242 You should have read this when trying to upgrade the firmware as it tells you as soon as you click on the upgrade services! Go on SE's website and select your laughauge and also do the same for your version of the upgrade for the phone so go to support, type in k750 then go to more then upgrading and services and the same in your country on that SE website!
Here is what it says you msut have done:
You have a PC with at least a Pentium 133 with 32 MB RAM or more - a Pentium II 233 with at least 64MB RAM is recommended .
The operating system on your PC is one of the following: Windows 2000 (SP3 or higher required) or XP (SP1 or higher required)
You have installed the PC Suite on my PC - the PC Suite can be found on the CD that came with your product or on the Global Support Area.
You have connected my USB-cable between the phone and the PC and installed Update Service USB driver - Drivers and install instructions are available on the Global Support Area.
Your phone is turned on!!
Your device is fully charged and the charger cable is disconnected.
I and SE recommend you have broadband but dial up 56kbps is ok but broadand would be better!
Jeff: If you ahve done all of those things and still doesn't work, contact 02 and see what they can do! lol 02 see what you can do!
spices10: Have you got the Vodafone settings? You can download them from the phone in Connectivity and a Vodafone section if there is one, or download them online or go into the shop! The branch staff should have told you this, but if they have, upgrade the firmware by doing what I have just said about how to upgrade the firmware like they said to!
To main upgrade page for K750 (English)
Has anyone had the same problem as me?
I got my K750i from Carphone Warehouse on Vodaphone. Seems like a software issue as i cant get Wap/Gprs and MMS to work. Gotta upgrade firmware to R1A044 as been told by Branch Staff.
si dude! please help! i cannot upgrade to the new firmware, it says my network operator wont allow me, im on 02 at the moment, is there any way around this?? any help or advice welcome!!! thanks!!!
Fully happy with this phone K750i is really nice one ! all futures available ! sure better than Nokia, if someone looking for the quality sure SONYERICSSON got that for you ! Nokia mobiles seems poor quality .. no more
Hi, finally got k750i today, brilliant! (loudspeakers volume could be higher!!)
Q: I've the HK ver of k750i, when I try to upgrade and at the pop up screen it says an error msg and says I should charge up my phone.
Why is this the case?
Do I require a full charge to proceed sucessfully?
Anyone else had this problem?
I have the K750i. Whenever the phone is in standby mode with the screen black and the time floating around, when i want to use the phone i have to press a button to get if away from the standby mode. on the SE t610 you could move the joystick and it would gdt it away from the standby mode.
Has anyone else experienced this and found another way around this or is this just they way its gotta be??
The phone can play 3GP and MPeg4! It records in 3GP and runs out until the meory runs out and that is more than 2 hrs if you have memory all free!
The battery lasts about 3-5 days but depends what you do but just talking sollidly could last about 2 days!
does the size of the pictures stay the same as the size of the phone's screen? i mean when u take a picture on K700 and upload them to a computer, the size of the picture is of the same size of the phone's screen. So i'm wonderin' if this is the same case with K750/K750i?
it has video player, wat kinda of videos it play? like mpeg and avi?
huhu! nice phone some good improvements from the well known k700! k750 is very nice! good menus and (the best one)2mpx camera is very good for a cell....but 1 question: who has a better mp3 player quality? e398, e1000 or k750?
just got this phone two days ago and its great!!the camera and the sound especially..definitely better than nokia for now..the only setback is that its not symbian and it does not support third party software but otherwise its a great phone to get!
its battery life is moderate..better than nokia phone..that said mainly bcos the camera function takes up alot of battery..but then again its a great phone and it can last atleast more than one day
Thanks, but I speek, 3 hours per day, end I d'ont know if K750i, keep me 2 days long.
How knows the phone?
Hi yes you can get get an update for mexicain, or any other country upgrades! Here is one for you a1x_0 for your update: http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=mx&lc=es&ver=4000&template=ps1_1_5_7&zone=ps&lm=ps1_1&pid=10242
Basickly go to www.sonyericcson.com, choose your country, go to product support, type in the phone moddel, then go to more and go to upgrade services and stuff and it will be there for your chosen country and laughuage!
Cable is slow compared to a Bluetooth connection so to transfer files and stuff for quickness get a bluetooth dongle for around £20!
Mp3 sound quality is great only in earphones as speaker phone is pretty quiet for most people!
The K750 is better than the D500 for software, camera and a load more!
The W800 is better than the K750 as the K750 can not last 30hrs playback with MP3 as it will only have 30hrs plyback when the phone is off and the K750 can't do that! The W800 has flight mode so you can view the gallery, take photo's and listen to the Mp3 player for 30hrs and all fot his is when the phone is off and can be used on a plane as it won;t interife and the K750 doe snot have this! Also the W800 will come with bluetooth wireless headphones, where as the K750 will come with wired one and the K750 only comes with a 64MB memory card where as the W800 comes with a 512MB memory card!
02 is not all bug free until like July I think! Ask them for the truth in the phone shop and makes sure they don't tell you lies! Get it out of them lol! Mainly 02 are very good with firmware as they don't nomrally change anything and have no logo's on the phone but for some reason they have played around with the firmware!
By the way firmware is what runs your phone and is all the software and lets you access things on your mobile! Basickly when you upgrade the firmware, SE have made improvments to make the pone run better!
Also Symbian is better than SE's )OS (Operating System) as on Symbian you cna download many more things but this phone is still godo and can lots of thigns from SE but not as advanced but great phone for a camera and Mp3 player!
RT and everyone: Well I used to work for Sony Ericsson and Motorola and Alcatel! I have my patience but I left as it was only to get some experience! I knew a lot anyway but don't know everything about this specific phone and don't know everything but the most obvious question or tricky heard questions I can answer and if I don't know it I will make it my job to find out for you! Like I don't know every single detail on the phones because I didn't always do each one and have a look at every spec so I don't always know how many SMS texts am SE can hold as I don't know everything like that but try and find out! I like helping people and that’s what I do! At the moment I have my own shop with my best m8 and we sell some phones but mainly give advice! I also made a pretty rubbishy little website for this phone too, just a quick one at: http://www.freewebs.com/sjtproductions/Sony%20Ericsson%20K750%20questions%20answered.htm
flo2216: The battery lasts probably about 3-5 days but depends what you use like if you use the camera, MP3 player, file sharing, calling and so on about 2 days or less!
Kenny: You probably just have a crappy version or faulty, try getting another one as problems should have been fixed especially with the new firmware upgrade you can get from SE's website at: http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=gb&lc=en&ver=4000&template=ps1_1_5_7&zone=ps&lm=ps1_1&pid=10242
Also regarding the CCD sensor upgrade when I was at SE I heard they were going to have a phone with a CCD sensor but don't know what one! I have heard quite a bit that they will upgrade the firmware to hold a 2GB as well but CCD sensors I now have second thoughts! I have heard very different opinions from SE, people and all the other places I get my info from! I don't know why they would anyway as you might as well have another phone than to release the same phone but with a CCD sensor, just seems odd, as it is has never happened before so it may not be official anymore!
(Also please no François (French) or any other language here please, just English! If you can come on this site and know where to get to a posting board on a website like this and you don't speak English I think would be very hard! So if you do to be stupid don't!
More ansers coming!
I am a student currently pursuing engineering.I am confused whether Sony Ericsson k750 or Samsung d500 is a better option for me.My requirements are a good camera,stereophonic mp3 player,bluetooth,good video recording,FM radio and a decent interface.I still doubt d500's mp3 player sound quality and bluetooth. Kindly advise me and plz let me know of any problems in the two models.Feel free to reply me on my email address.Thanx in advance and i would appreciate every reply.I am planning to buy one of these within 2 weeks so plz reply soon.
