I almost feel guilty for abusing my K850i. I just purchased a 2GB Micro SD card and I have been downloading mp3's, tones, applications, images and themes plus taking pics and vids. And so far my K850 hasn't hanged, Not ONCE!!! I am so happy with my cellphone I have decided to keep it till it breaks down on me, which hopefully will be in the distant future!!!
*** updating Firmware is the key ***
I have sent an email to the SE Website to verify the rumored 2008 / 2009 firmware. I will post their answer as soon as they reply. I will definitely have my firmware updated if this proves to be true (the current ver is R1FA 035, which I have).
There's been a hardware upgrade to the 2008 and 2009 SE k850i products - al the problems with touch keys are gone now.
I have been using SE phones for 6-7 years.. now i'm starting to get the pain of dragging a SE phone for more than a year cause it stops working properly. currently m using a SE k850i phone for 13 months (-)it's giving me a hell-of-a-problem with the touch key pad (absolutely a ridiculous concept)which doesn't work properly. e.g. imagine u r trying to send a msg and u r pressing d send touch key and it's not responding to your touch... grrrrrrrr... it's so frustrating. (-) twice i've lost all my phone data (specially contacts) cause my phone went blank for no reason and the service center says "your software was corrupt" twice!!!!! GOD :o save me from SE phones. (-) very very very BAD speaker. i've nothing gud to write about this phone xcept the camera which is AWESOME. the rest all negative...... :(
Hi all, I have a problem...
My 1-year old K850i has a problem with the Xenon flash - it has stopped working! When I try to take a picture with the flash on, I hear that 'flicking sound' as if the flash has lighted up and then I get a blank (Black) picture with no light. What could be causing this and do Xenon flashes run out? And if it needs to be replaced, how expensive is it?
Thanks in advance.

Shadrach, 14 Aug 2009I am not sure if it is possible to download and install by yourself since I have not tried. T... moreYa i can understand tat but even if the battery status is at 99%, the next step is not executed.
Hav to change any internal setting for tat.
Hav you tried tat?
Eddy, 13 Aug 2009I js want to dowload antivirus on my k850 bt idk wat to do.somebody help me ths ma fav phn Actually there is no specific software for sony mobiles regarding the anti virus. Mostly your memory card may get into virus may be in your phone memory too. You can clean them using your PC virus. But no software is available to our mobile till now.
And the battery will not remain for 400hrs. At most it will come for 2 - 3 days. Becs tat 400hrs is tested under std conditions which is similar to the bike millage proposed by the bike dealers.
Eddy, 13 Aug 2009Is it true that my phn cn keep charg on 400h Maybe it is possible...I haven't tried it though coz I don;t want toasted K850i with salad on the side. lol
Eddy, 13 Aug 2009Wat cn i do to change MENU I CONS on my k850 i tryed to change themes bt it coldnt changed What themes have you added? I have at least 5 tyoes of menu icons before I restored factory settings on my phone (due to really bad curiosity). It changes icons all the time.
If you change themes, only the backround color changes?
Deepz, 13 Aug 2009Whether it is possible to download the OS for our mobile & install them by our self? And also... moreI am not sure if it is possible to download and install by yourself since I have not tried. The pre-condition (like having the battery charged 100%) is just there as a reminder that you need to have a charge that will last until the download and installation finishes. What happens is that if you fail in a middle of the download, you lose all information, you lose your software, your phone is heading to the repair shop :D
Deepz, 13 Aug 2009Any examples for audio books & podcasts. So tat i can understand in a better way.I don't have any podcasts downloaded, as well as audio books. In a way, an audio book is practically a book that is recorded in audio. it may be in a form of any audio format. See, the audio books in the K850i is just there so you can place your audio books in one section and not mix it up with your music files.
Podcasts, imagine torrents. They are downloaded bit by bit...now podcasts are on a much simpler model. If ypou download a podcast, and there is a series to that, the downloader automatically identifies what is next in the series.
