when you purchase the phone - the first thing you need to do is to spend all of the batery life and then let it charge for about 12 hours !!!!!! this way you won`t have batery problems. cheers
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Blue Ring of Death - a common software glitch appearing randomly on K850i units. Named after the aftermath - blue light surrounding the camera lens.
Probable cause: faulty firmware
I'm lucky not to have one.
I'm sooo disappointed! I was thrilled to get this phone but in just 4 months it's died... not just a little bit, COMPLETELY. Be warned, mine is the Black and Quicksilver version, so it's not even the 1st Gen!
The main problem I've had the whole of it's life until today has been intermittent freezing, crashing (buzz and switch off with very slow to restart), and now a fatal crash which has completed killed the phone. It won't switch on at all! You can take the battery out and try but it's not going to do any good. I'm now looking at a very expensive piece of pretty plastic. I've read many review sites today and now see I'm not the only person to have problems. There's LOADs of things that keep going wrong with this model. If I'd known of the problems before I wouldn't have bothered wasting my money.
Sony Ericsson - SHAME ON YOU! Release a product that's ready for the market. Brand loyalty is what will keep you in business and this is not the way to go about it.
To all considering it... PLEASE PLEASE DON'T !!!

USB Cable to Charge Phone.
I have been on this website to find out how to do the above.
Have had my phone plugged in to the computer via the USB getting fed up that it would not do the simple job of charging my phone.
Battery was getting v low, so I switched my phone off. Surprise, surprise - the phone is now charging via the USB cable.
Message: if you want to charge your phone using the USB, switch it off!!!
Why didn't I know this before :-p
sniper supra, 25 Jun 2008they're already outdated, old and out-smarted by better technologies.name a phone with more features.

Can someone please tell me does SE k850 i have battery problems? I purchased this phone last week and my charge is finishing up very fast.Someone please reply soon.Thx.
yea but i live in the US and those are really my only choices with gsm 850 mhz , but isnt the k850 better with music on loudspeaker?

The price of K850 here in south india is around 480$ and i haven't faced any problem only the photos looks dull and not that much detail when compared to my N82. I think w910 would be better if you are looking for music!!!
nick, 25 Jun 2008or get the n95/n958gb/n82 and get the best of all worldsthey're already outdated, old and out-smarted by better technologies.
music wise the n81 is supposed to be magnificent.
get the n81, its great!
hello i cant decide between this phone and the nokia n81. i know is overall better but the n81 has wifi and stil decent overall. what kind of software problems do these phones have? and hows the n81 music on loudspeaker? thank u
Dani, 25 Jun 2008Shall i get N82 then??
i still can..@Dani,
It will be better if you get N82..bcoz according to the deep analysis with the K850 and N82 i made for the past 3 days...N82 serves to be way better in camera compared to K850..
It was almost 3 days i have trying with my new N82(black) with my K850 shootout.As a supporter of sony ericsson still i have to admit that pics by N82 was absolutely awesome!!!
The N82 pics were more clear and with perfect details where it was not that much in K850.
Xenon flash in my new N82 once again scores perfect when compared to my K850.
In the part of camera interface K850 was perfect with clear details than N82.
Carl Zeiss lens in N82 makes a great difference in setting up it as top most product among 5 mega-pixel phones.
Sony Ericsson should have done better in the camera of k850 since it was their flagship device whereas nokia has made a real difference with the camera capabilities in N82 and in N95.
So atleast by now SE have to concentrate on C905 to make it better otherwise it would be really disappointing to the user's.
