i have been using this phone for he past 5 months.. everything was great in it especially the camera..
the xenon flash in it is very very very strong, really good at taking pictures at low lite conditions..
the battery of this phone, for me, is normal. it last about 2 days with heavy texting (about 300 messages/day)
and after learning my phone, i was able to put different flash themes with great menus in it...
but unfortunately after about 3 months of usage, my phone got the BROD (BLUE RING OF DEATH) !!! and i immediately send it to repair, and gladly they manage to repair my phone.. i was very happy about it..
but after about 2 months of happy k850 usage... 2 days ago, when i was about to charge my k850, the phone went black!!! at 1st i thought it was juts rebooting but when i turned it on,i found out that it was another BROD!! so i send it for repair again and got my phone just yesterday with no problem or whatsoever..
and i thought that all is well with my k850 but early this morning, the middle touch key wont respond on me!! it keeps pressing itself!! and whenever i press the navi key DOWN and other keys below the #5, the middle touch key is actvating!!
i hate this phone so much now.. at 1st i thought that i wouldnt experience those problems that i read on the net, but i was wrong!!!!
now i cant use my fone at all...
i will dispose this piece of garbage as soon as possible and get an LG COOKIE!!!
i recommend this phone for its features as long as u guys dont mind the BROD case the not so sturdy touch keys..
good luck =D
sorry for my english

Im going to do what nick did 2 years ago.
the N95 is just sooo good compared to the crappy K850, VGA video and 3.5mm jack make the N95 a marvelous phone!
(nick, i copied you haha)
scksisanothe word fo rubbish if u ask me.
Mrigank Pawar, 06 May 2009True that. So, u still using k850i or bought a new fone? If u will b buyin a new 1, wich 1 wil... moreI am still using the k850 but i also have the nokia 5800, and i use nokia n78 as a back up. You may not understand the need for all these phones but in a country like mine where networks are not reliable, its not strange to see ppl carrying 2 or 3 phones with different networks all on pre paid plans.
If i were to buy another phone, it would be nokia n97.
ChrisB, 05 May 2009thank you. to be honest i dont think hes an expert at all hes just a serial poster that answer... moreYou see.. dani is not a fanboy anymore. He is reformed and has been bitten by the nokia bug. Thanks to nick. But he is still my k850 guru. This is my fixed delusion and cannot be argued or changed.

Its good in its own rights, it has its pros and cons.
No phone is perfect.
Know your role and shut your mouth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if yusssssssssmmmmmmmeellllllllllllllllllllll ! what the rock is cooking
Mrigank Pawar, 06 May 2009I almost agree with all dat u said bout Dani...Why's that?

Anyone knows whether this phone can be used as a modem? (plug in using USB cable and connect to the internet through the PC suite? If such thing exists in Sony Ericsson mobile phones that is)
Don't get it.
It's not bad, good interface like all Ericssons, decent battery life, etc, but I've had many problems with it. Restarts often, had a software problem earlier, it won't detect the memory card, the buttons won't function correctly, and today it crashed completely.
Dr Adedoyin, 05 May 2009I've never got your type of problem. In fact, i've never got any problem with my k850. Am sure... morethank you. to be honest i dont think hes an expert at all hes just a serial poster that answers every1s Qs and ppl direct their Qs to him as he is guaranteed to answer the Q. dont forget that he battled for the k850, sticking up for it against the n95 and now that hes got an n95 he calls the k850 rubbish. his mind is too young if you ask me
Dani, 05 May 2009Re-install your firmware, it should fix the problems, buttons should work as they are after. tried it, didnt fix the problem! :( i really like this mob i dont wanna have to get a new mob although c905 is tasty......
