Quite right, the joystick becomes worse during the time of use (in my case I don't no if it was a blend of dirt, sweat in my crude work or need for software upgrade). Maybe both. In the major overhaul the changed or fixed the joystick, changed some items in the "camera bottom" and in the listening device together with software upgrade. No cost for me because of a manufacturer/seller garanti (3 years). The phone, now, is better than ever, and I have no need to change for the next 3 years. And by the way, my wife is still using the "old" SonyEricsson 610, which I bought 5-6 years ago, which is still working fine. I've had Nokia and Panasonic in the past. They worked fine but were useless after two years because the batteris were dead and it made more sense to buy new phone than expensive new batteries. Those new batteries (Lion) adds extra life to cellphones if the machine is durable. Those SonyEricssons are and they are much more than a just cellphones. They are useful partners wich you never leave behind.
Is it true that you had used this phone for 3 years ? What abaout it's joystick ? Is it still works ?
And I wonder to know, what kind overhaul did for your K750 ? Is it just clean the inside component phone, or you must relpace some of it ?
Thanks for your information. Because it is common that the joystick of this phone become unresponsive.
hey..can any 1 tell me that it has gprs modem or what?? can i use it as a modem with my pc??
The only thing i worry about this phone is that the joystick may become unresponsive or unusable over time due to usage and dirt accumulation inside. SE joysticks are well known for this fate. Using the keypad and number shortcuts and cleaning the "Well" is a primary chore for this phone.
I think I know what's the problem. Open the camera in video mode and press Settings. Enter Shoot Mode and select High Quality Video. This should solve the problem.
I just recently bought this phone. And now I'm having a bit of a trouble with the video. I can't seem to record a video for more than 9 seconds. 9 seconds. Can anyone please tell me how I can correct this problem? I'd really appreciate it if any one of you reply to this message. Thanks.
Anything bad? The memorycard includet was too small (but they all are, both in phones and cameras). The earplugs was stupit and I have bought three wich all broke down. The best thing about the earplugs was even when they broke down you could use the speaker an now had a mobile radio which often comes in handy for me. With a complecated machine like this, which one uses so much every day its no wonder you need to get it checked and the software updated every once in a while. I can´t count how often I have lost it on the floor in my workingplace (building site) and it has always made it back with schraches but unharmed otherwise and ready to work for you.
And: Camera has suprisingly many features and in good exsposure this little thing somtimes dilivers very good pictures. I have a Cannon IXUS 40 (4mpix) and when the batteri runs out (which it usually does) Im lucky to have my 750 digital camera with me to stand in, and not bat to have both flash and video feature to use. N.B I bought a 1gb card right in the beginning and have never run out of space since. I have no interests in games so that feature in the 750 is hardly known to me. I had SonyEricsson 610 before and 750 was a worthy successor.
Very good phone. I have had it for 3 years now and used it in my workplace with all its dirt and dangers. It got its first major overhaul (no cost for me) now and is as good as new. My brother got 790 and is not satisfied. I have used the camera function and radio a lot and the flashlight has come in handy. Usb connection has also been useful. A overall good phone and much more then just a phone and is holding its value uptill now.
Yeah, Robert, you are right about this. I do also tink that the original firmware suits tthe phone better, and also considering the shortcut key, which i tink tink is useful compared to the ''converted walkman button''.
To: K750i_Lover => The firmware upgrade to w800i is possible. what you will gain is the 1) Louder & Better sound quality of MP3s & 2) the Airplane (offline) Mode. What you will lose is => the shortcut button w/c is replaced by media player function. I just luv my K750i the way it is.
Nobody is telling you, this mobile is good for games, it's not, but is like a bussines mobile even though it doesn't have such a good design, but you must admit it has a good camera and it's merely for teenagers or so.
k750 is the wickest phone out! still...even tho the w810 is now patchable...k750 still is the most mod-able phone around! kudos to sony.. and to those guys thinkin that the 6630 cam better..try hackin your cam drivers..eg. sarmads or kriomag...then you will see performance..and for info on modding your phone..jus search!
this phone is good.it has a 2mpcamera, mp3 player,radio,and external memory slot,a flash. i think this is a a compleate phone.
Hey guys do you believe that k750ui could be better if the firmware would be modified to W800i or you believe in originality??
