Ive had my K750i for 5 days, thought it was a very nice fone but... im having a few problems with it, the earpiece is very quiet, even turned right up, it seems to have a problem downloading games, when it loses service you need to turn the fone off, then it wont turn on so you remove and replace battery, then the hands free fails to work, overall not very happy... not reliable enough... tried the new firmware download too but it doesnt work as already said, Vodafpone did tell me there is a problem with the software! will be exchanging this weekend.
hi, what does updating the firmware do? and does it delete all programs and files off ur fone, thanks.
:( i tried to update the firmware but won't work. Have u tried doing it urself? All the way till off phone is ok but after pressing "c" and connect the USB cable to the phone, the updater had no respone. Tried it twice but doesn't work also. Please assist me... TQ!
is it possible to set a specific ringtone for 1 person or a group like in the nokia
Thanks for giving the link out Tommy!
lostmaker: Are you sure m8? You should be able to stop it charging and transfer files from phone to pc! Try again or get help!
This phone does not play .rm or .ram files (i.e. real player files)
Leon: Lines are caulld noise and will happen in low lit conditioned areas as it is down to the sensor on the camera! It is a CMOS sensor that hardly uses any power but has lots of noise in a photo with low light conditions! Where as they are thinking by the end of Novemeber, it will feature a CCD sensor which will be a lot betetr in low light conditions and will hugly reduce the amount of noise in a lit area on the photo but takes up a lot more battery power but they almost certain to put one in this phone!
does the SE K750 play .rm or .ram files (i.e. real player files)
The camera on the k750 performs very well in well lit conditions. But dark areas on photos get lines on it. This happens after the picture is taken and only seen when the picture is saved. My settings are on the largest size and in fine quality.
I've been wanting a phone that used a USB cable for data transfer and charging for ages as I've gotten dependent on it when travelling. However, I've just realised that you can't use the cable to transfer data from a laptop whilst on battery as there is no way to turn off the charging and it will drain the laptop battery rapidly.
Just a minor flaw but one worth noting.
Have you checked that both the phone and pc have the same daylight saving setting? That can often lead to an hour difference between devices.
You can set up multiple contact folders in outlook. I have one called phone contacts that I synchronise my phone with and manually transfer to my main outlook contacts.
I am still having problems downloading the new FW and reaaly need some ideas guys. I've now downloaded the USB Cable update but whenever i try i download the software to update my phone, i click on "I Agree" to the license agreement and then i just get a blank screen. I've left it for 20mins and it still stays as a blank screen. I've tried different browsers, i've re-installed the java client, i've cleaned the cache and i've made sure cookies are allowed but it's still giving me the blank page.
That is the link to Sony Ericssons support center where there are instructions on how to download the new firmware. The page is also available in different languages too.
Si Dude and Tommy, need to make clear 1 thing. U guys said that there is another firmware released by SE? Where can I get it done? Must send the phone back to SE? Or can DIY?
The maximun you can put into the phone is 1GB, but they are sayiong they will soon make it so you can put upto 2GB but only upto 1GB at the moment.
what's the biggest memory stick that will work on the phone, 256mb 512 mb or 1gb ?
The update failed to work as well, after i plugged out the USB cable and placed it back in, the update didn't start and hanged my comp instead. Can anyone tell me why?
OMG! Tommy, Si Dude, Help... knowing there is new firmware i regreted that i purchased a Local warranty K750i (Malaysia). So which mean updating the firmware will cost me $$ when i send my phone to SE? Or can do it by our own? Pls reply.
the picture quality is also highly dependant on the lens and software and processing chip afterwards.you could make 12 megapixel camera phones and have a rubbish picture if the above are poor quality.cmos sensors have come along way now as firms invested in the cmos due to what the last post said about power consumption which is stiil critical to all mobile or portable products.it would take a while to explain the different charateristics between complimentry metal oxide semiconductot sensor and a charged couple device.it also has to do with complex algorithmic maths so the best option is to try in the shop and remember it wont look best on a comp screen its what its like printed out.i think you should personnely be allowed to try a print out to see if its what you want but most i know never even get to that stage,its just left in digital format??
Don't buy into the hype that CMOS sensors are always inferior in quality to CCD sensors, because it is not true. While it is generally the case in low end camera sensors, such as those in the first wave of megapixel cameraphoness, it is very possible to make a high quality CMOS sensor. In fact, the two digital SLR cameras that I use for shooting photos for this site are both equipped with CMOS sensors (one 6mp, the other 8.2mp). The CMOS sensor design has advantages over CCD units; they are smaller and they use less power, which is why we've typically seen them in cameraphones. But as the K750 will show us, they can also be made to take fine quality photos, approaching those created with dedicated point and shoot cameras.
The only time that the quality lacks is when the light levels are low. In such cases, the photos look much noisier than you would hope for, and look much more like those shot with a lower quality CMOS sensor. The K750's night mode and assist light help a bit, but not enough to really make low-light photos usable. But for most other situations, the K750's camera is fantastic considering it is in a typically sized handset.
here's the link for the sake of the folks who haven't seen yet the silver SE k750i...i hope you enjoy the it!
