I have this phone and my sister gave it to me.. The best phone and its features are the best. Pictures taken by its camera are good and sound quality is the best compared to other phone brands. I use it as a music player too. All negative comments about this phone specifically about its hang ups and turning off by itself are just lies. Excellent phone. For me, I think am the only one here in the philippines with this phone..=)
this is a great phone. and those of you who cant send picture msgs really need to talk to your provider. it also helps if you save most of your info on your memory card and not on the phone. that helps speed up most functions on this inexpensive durable phone. and as far as battery life. when you purches this wonderful product,take the time and shut the phone off and let it charge TILL IT TELLS YOU CHARGE COMPLETE. DUH
We have two of the tm506. It would be a good phone for a kid. Dont buy this if you own a business it locks up ALOT. Cant press 1 for english, cant hangup on solisiters, cant see the screen (because its blank).
We have the update cable and did the update (several times). when you call tech suport thats the first thing they say is do an update.
We have returned the phones a few times (fourth phone now)and still have the same problem. Some people say (its a free phone) no its not unless you want to be married to t-mobile. The first phone I purchased when it first hit the streets about 17-18 months ago and it was around $150 with the 2 year contract then. Good luck if you get one. I belive this phone has a software issue.
I have had my phone since July. I have had to replace it 3 times because it will not make calls, hangs up on calls in the process because the phone lags so bad, can not use my camera anymore, turns it self off, battery sucks, call history sucks, deletes messages before I get a chance to read them and so many more things. Now t mobile wont give me a different phone cause I exchanged them in the store. This phone is the worst phone I have ever had.
I've had this phone for almost a year now, and I really do enjoy this phone. I can put music, movies, videos, pictures on it via the computer, which is nice. The display is bright with sharp colors, which is really good when I play movies and videos. The music player is very good too, with various sound settings and equalizer. Calls sound very good and texting is no problem. Picture quality isn't too bad with the camera. The "pan and zoom" feature is nice when viewing pictures. The size took a little gettin' used to though(I had a small Samsung flip phone before this one), but overall this is a really nice phone.
One of the worst phones ive ever had. Ive actually gone out of my way to tell anyone that looks here not to get it. I'ts slow, choppy and unpredictable similar to a computer with a virus
When I try to get my camera on, to take a picture, it brings up the loading page and immediately goes back to my main page. Can anyone help me?
I have a problem of finding the last dialed call. it does not show me the last call i made.
Zuz, 06 Aug 2009I have been using this phone for 8 months now, and just couple days ago it has started to turn... moreYes i had this problem and if you have droped it then that is what starts to happen i have been in the middle of phone calls and it will happen. They will tell you to Restart your phone but after a while it just dosn't stop. I LOVE MY PHONE and even though this happens i deal cuzz i just love my phone!
I have been using this phone for 8 months now, and just couple days ago it has started to turn off by itself. The battery is charged, and somethis it can be ok for whole night, and another time I have turn it back on every half an hour. Did anybody had this prblem with TM506?
I think this phone sucks.Very weak battery.Very slow motion.Returned one get a second (because the stupid contract with t-mobile)Second one the same.Think to use it like a spare.Think to buy Nokia 5800.Heard its great one.
I feel that a lot of the people that purchase this phone don't take the time to read the manual that come with it..... the TM506 is a great phone..... for those of you that like to text a lot more than talk on your phone.... it great.... just take the time to learn as to how this feature works.... you would not be desapointed .... the 3G technology on it is great.... the web comes quit (at about 1 sec w/3G full signal)...
there is no radio on it.... only nokias have that.... it is better to buy the memory card reader than the usb cable ... i recomended..... so please get to know your phone like you would your first date .... adios i gracias....
Neil Vo, 01 Jun 2009I have the Cable USB Sony Ericson for Transfer Data to Computer . After use a several times . ... morego to www.sonyericsson.com then downloal PC-Suite 188.8.131.52 version. then use.
Good Signal, Sounds Good, it's a Sony Ericsson. Only problem is that's a slow version! Open apps. or everything you want to work with it is slow, CPU slow! Is a good equipment, just the slow of the CPU don't make it Perfect!
