Phone will reset whenever it feels like, and the screen will not turn on, only the keypad.
This has happened to me only 3 months after having the phone, having taken such good care of it.
I've read other users having the same problems
DO NOT BUY!
To sum it all up K850 is a multimedia phone with an excellent camera. Furthermore it’s running the new A200 platform, adding new features and enhancing old ones. Let’s have a look at some of these; NetFront 3.4 web browser with Flash-support, X-Pict Story slide-show application for exciting slide-shows with sound, supports 32 GB memory cards, photo tagging, Media menu and of course the cool search feature in standby mode.

zahid, 30 Dec 2008can it support 8gb micro sd or m2? or even more did any one tried 16 gb?It can support all types of MicroSD regardless of its capacity. Haven't tried 16GB though.
akon, 30 Dec 2008which colour seems better? green or blue or silver for k850i? what is the speed of internet ... morePersonally, I am using a velvet blue and it's remarkable. The HSDPA of K850i is 3.6 Mbps.
I've bought my second K850i yesterday. The colours on my old one got faded away and it really annoys me, thus I got a new one. Yippee!
By the way, Sony Ericsson had heard a lot of complaints from the public regarding the RIFA035 firmware and believe it or not, they are now working on the new firmware! Bugs to be removed:
1) Auto restart
2) Indoors photo quality
3) Colour contrast and white balance
Hehe, can't wait for the new firmware release. (Hope it is true though...)

ok so this is like the second day im using my k850i , ummm no its the third . yes the third day . and i gotta say its rocking . i plugged in my headset and started listening to music yesterday starting from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm in the evening and answered about 5 incoming calls 5 to 10 min's for each call . and at 5 pm in the evening i took notice that only 1/4 of the battery was drained . oh ya and i forgot i took like 20 pictures and watched some videos with it for like 30 mins . so all this i have done and the battery level is still perfect . and i didnt fully charged it yesterday morning even . i only plugged it into the charger for like half an hour before i went to work . this is amazing i was right the s.e. phones got the best battery life out there . (i dont wanna talk about samsung or lg)
Nathan Green, 31 Dec 2008Im currently on my fourth handset due to the phone switching itself off and not switching back... morethose are not touch screen - those are touch buttons - i asked the same question i had in my mind from the s.e. shop owner before i brought this handset he said as long as your not gonna get it as a contract phone (because we really cant depend on what they are giving us) or as long as you don't drop it or scratch it it will never give any problems . he also said - sir if u wanna trust me s.e. k850i is the only phone i used in 3 different colors because i really love it . lol .
