Sorry about the BROD Pawar. But most of us have moved on and upgraded to more solid phones that are stable and better.
Chris, that's nokia code. Sony ericsson code is 0000.
Chris i that's nokia default. Sony ericsson's is 0000.
Pawar, sorry about the BROD.
Dani, that's old story. Everyone is moving on now.
hey i want to know if anyone's having problems with this phone's touch buttons.
as in any old user of this phone having trouble with the touch sensitive buttons????
I just need to know something about the Bluetooth. How true is it that leaving your phones bluetooth on (When not in use)sucks up the battery life? I have left my Bluetooth on (Hidden) for a number of occasions and I haven't happened to see a significent decline in my phone's battery life.

Oh God! After 18 mnths and 2 days, my k850i is officially dead! I threw it around a lot a few days b4 it died. It doesn't start at all. Only the keypad and the blue ring around the cam lens is lit. I had the latest f/w. Dunno wat's wrong. Any1 got a solution?
Well, I guess I'll b going for w995 or will wait for the x2.
I've just finished runing the update service and found out that there hasn't been any updates for more than a year now LOL. I'm not complaining though coz I don't really have issues with the phone.

I am using this mobile for about 1 year. I bought it new. This phone has great features but its keypad is very annoying. Its not soft. So if you are continuously working then it causes pain in the thumb.
But otherwise performance and features are great. But keypad should be soft so that you can work even longer......!
how can i activate the security lock? i can't change the old password...usually the phone will ask you to type the old password which is 12345 right...then you have to enter the new ones twice,but the result was...code error.im wondering...because it is brand new...can somebody help me? thanks
I'm going to buy a K850i again, seen a used one going to buy it! Velvet blue mmm
Hi there.I don't know guys how do you treat your phone,but this mobile is amazing.Everything is just perfect.With the help of the new cam drivers the cam became amazing in both video and still photos.I'm just in love with this mobile.
Reading most of the opinions here I am totally confused as to how you guys use your phones. I am a rough user myself but I didn't have any problems with this phone. I must admit I had it serviced once because I SAT ON IT and it lost audio and only audio. I have had this phone for more than a year now and it still works. no brod, no touch sensor malfunction, speakers are really nice, quite easy to use.
Yeah very attractive but freezes often, slow to process key pad commands.Suddenly noticed lcd goes blank! cant read my messages or monitor phone operations. pls whats wrong with my phone just got it for less than 6months.

I guess it was all a rumour that SE were ccoking up a new firmware for the K850i.
Lovey phone and everything! But it freezes constantly. Third third time it freezes, don't consider yourself lucky! I had to take it for repairs the third time it froze on me.
I wrote an email to SE if there is truth to the rumor about a new firmware released August this year:
To: , firstname.lastname@example.org
Opinion: I have a K850i and there have been news of a new firmware being released for it last August 5. May I ask if there is truth to that? My phone's firmware is the latest (to my knowledge), R1FA 035.***
and their reply was:
***Dear Mr. Jas11,
Thank you for contacting Sony Ericsson on the World Wide Web.
Regarding your Ticket ID _______, Currently, the latest software version for K850i is still R1FA035.
