From the moment I purchased this phone I have had nothing but trouble.
All of the constant sporadic hang-ups, lack of service (in areas where it should work fine), cut-in-half voice mails were really starting to get to me and to top it off, this afternoon I was unable to send or receive text messages due to the apparent "Phone Memory Full" which appears cannot be rectified since every single message is "corrupt" and cannot be deleted. Also my phone is showing me that I have 1495 drafts saved in my phone.... ridiculous.
I bought this phone because I trusted the Sony name... boy was I wrong.
Terrible, waste of money doesn't say enough. No wonder T-Mobile gave this phone free when I upgraded my account. Or possibly T-Mobile is the root problem. Leaving them as SOON as my contract is up even though I need a new phone NOW!
gave this to my mom as a gift. she said it's terrible that i need to return this. cant call to her phone many times and also she picks up but you cant hear her nor can she hear you on the phone...sucks! so frustrating having to return things like that...dont get this phone
Don't waste your money on this phone! I have never written a review on anything before, but this phone is so frustrating I had to. After talking to someone for about one minute the other person can no longer hear me (i can still hear them). Then after about 30 seconds I lose connection totally. The texting sucks! It is slow and just as frustrating. This phone does nothing for me but raise my blood pressure!
i want to update the firmware on my s.e tm506,how i do it?can anybody help me?pls
It's not a bad phone, especially for the money. I'm using it on Mobilicity, and it hasn't had any issue with freezing, or shutting down, or rebooting, etc. The only problem is Mobilicity poor signal in some parts of the city. Also, the display is actually a bit over 2.2 inches, not 2.0 inches.
I'm pretty positive this phone is the worst phone I've ever had. It sucks, all it does is freeze, heat up, and turn off and on. It would have been a good phone if it hadn't done that.
my phone will not hang up !!!!!!
i can hit the red button or close the phone.......
after 1minute and 32 seconds it will hang up
anyone have a cure ?
This is a good 3G phone, at least acceptable low-cost use, though I suspect I got Revision 2 of this item since I have no problem whatsoever, and it is not T-Mobile version but unlocked, only gripe is Triband.
The worst phone I have ever owned. I am on my second one!!! Both phones freeze up. Impossible to check messages as it has long delay from when you push numbers to retrieve calls to when the phone registers the number pushed. Phone doesnt record half the call numbers of missed calls that come in and doesnt record half of the call numbers I make!!! Now my phone is turning on and off and the screen will not turn on. I am done with Ericsson and will NEVER buy another!!!!! Buyer Beware!!!!!
I have owned this phone for 3 months, and have experienced the occasional phone turning off.
Currently, it is the volume that is out. When I place or receive calls, I can not hear nothing. I have tried everything but nothing.
I am really disappointed with Sony.
Worst phone that I ever used froze every time,don't waste your time or money in this crappy gadget!!
carol, 08 Mar 2009does this phone have picture caller I.D.?yes it has pic id on it
I currently have this phone and it is AWFUL! It keeps turning on and off on me randomly. It freezes almost every time I open if and I have to wait until it processes me selecting the menu button or any button. I keep dropping calls and not receiving missed calls or text messages. I am currently on my 2nd phone waiting for the replacement (3rd) to come in the mail. Luckily I bought insurance on it so I will be getting a different phone. I feel awful for anyone who did not buy the insurance because for the most part people think it is a scam, but after the nightmare I have had with this phone and my previous phone I decided to pay for it which turned out to be a good investment.
