Just got this phone, and I am quite happy with it. I just had a panasonic, and of course there are always some functionality that you are going to miss, especially the automatic switch off function, and the phone lock function that works as an extra lock while the phone is turned on...BUT the SE w550i offers so much more :) and it has been great to explore it all! + battery time is GREAT!
Reg. software, you can find it here: www.sonyericsson.com under support! (atleast thats where I found and downloaded the software, since I had trouble with the cd too!)
All in all I think its a great phone. A bit heavy and bulky, and I still have to get used to the swivel-function, thinks its strange that you have to turn it upside down :S ...but it grows on you :)
Furthermore, as a girl, I love that you can change covers on it! I got both the orange and white, but might just get a pink one ;)
If others out there should be looking for covers you can find some here: http://www.styleupcover.com/
Can I recommend it? YUP :)
Try the SE UK site....i think u can get the softwares there...since itzz a newly launced model..the site for couple of contries are nt updated yet...
Hey ppl my friend just took the cell india for Rs.14898/-....i found the phone quite intresting.....the mp3 player , radio, and evrythig including the stereo speakers works great.....screen good.....but beleive me se has dissapointed in the camera section...but overall great value for money...so in the same price segment..better of 6670....but the desgn rocks....and one more thing...the second supllied white cover sucks real time.....
I've tried looking and i can't seem to find drivers on the sony ericsson website. i've found for other phones e.g w800 and thought i'll try, could've guessed it wouldn't work but no drivers for w550i.
Dude...plzz forget abt expanding the memory...itzz technically nt possible...i guess Razz could use a part of his analytical skills to explain as to hw to do it!!...n dat comes from my experience of 5 years in dat field...
Dude...the stereo speakers are amazin...no compare to the 3230 wic sounds soo pedestrian....
U can get the drivers at sonyericsson.com
is the w550i the same as the w600? is there any difference at all?
can somone please tell me where to get drivers for this phone, problem with the disc so i need to download them. thanks. p.s actually it's w550i, if theres a difference?
When I saw at gsmarena, I already interested with this phone.
When I bought it 3 days ago, its more than I imagine. The stereo speaker really works, when u turn on a Stereo Widening mode. I also found a new developed features such video DJ, Picture zooming (after U take a picture, U can zoom the result, isn't that interesting), flight mode (Phone turns off but U still could use a few features such Walkman, Digital camera and Video). 256 MB for storage is more than enough coz SE put a data cable in box when U purchase. So, U could put and take out a song U desire. W800 only have one speaker, but it has a 2 MP camera (But the result of a camera between this two phone not too significant). I already delivered the result of 1,3 MP SE camera, its good and bright (depends on the source of light) U also could print to 5R without crack (it still good). W550i really makes U fun to have it.
pls tell me the links for the expendable memory from 256mb to 1gb? thx
Does the stereo enhance make a difference when playing mp3 with the stereo speakers??Is there a difference with the mono speaker of the W800i?And is there much distortion when playing mp3 at max level as sonyericssons usually have?????

i am a k700i user, planning to buy this phone. can any one tell me is this phone as a better camera than k700i and is the screen as sharp as k700i.
I want to buy a new phone. Which one is better? The w550i or the w800? Also, which one is newer?
I see that the 800 has a memory stick and a better camera, are there any advantages on the 550?

has any1 had a fault with transfering music form there hard drive to the phone or am i doing something wrong please help !!!!!!
i got this phone last week. its great. theres enough memory trust me, 256mb is a lot. i have 20 full songs, lots of ringtones, and photos on my phone and still have 170mb left. it comes with an extra white faceplate. its really user-friendly and has a lot of shortcut buttons on the phone. the camera is good, since it has flash. the battery could be better, but i listen to music all day so what can i expect. and the music quality is amazing, i think its better than my ipod mini.
No dummy avble esp. in delhi mkt.. Unless u feel the touch of it, buying decision is hampered. Opinion poll ofcourse favours its features except the camera, which our course is the main crieteria. Will someone give fair and expert view on this ?
Ordered this phone yesterday from O2.
http://shop.o2.co.uk/shop/o2uk/jsp/handsets/viewHandsetDetails.jsp?prodID=consumer:SE:W550i:GROUP comes with 515mb memory from O2 according to them! Su-eet!
I am confused. Which one should i go for: Nokia 6630 or SE W550i?
How is the camera quality of W550i as compared to N6630? Can anybody give me links to any comparisons performed. This is the most important criteria for me!
And how is the sound quality of W550i as compared to N6630?
256 MB sounds fine for the time being! 320 MB is even better!!
