I am planning to buy this phone this week. Can someone temme if there is any other way to update other than thru GPRS...??
Can we update thru USB?? Also once someone gets white screen how is he supposed to update??
hey... i was wondering what the "white screen of death" is... i am getting this w550 tomorrow... i would very much appriciate if i get an e-mail... cheers :-)
if you have questions about w550, you can email me at email@example.com.
in order to avoid the white screen, you must download the latest firmware via gprs. do it as soon as possible. if you have w550 newly purchased, update it immediately. the update service is located in the settings menu. that is the only solution to make your w550 enjoyable.
i used this mobile for 5 months...durin that it got struck twice...d white screen...its heck usin ...but the music is truly good...now i am gonnna buy k 750i ...think twice guys
Hi - I have been using Sony mobiles since a long time and this Walkman phone is amazingly good with cool sound controls.. but i feel the camera could have been better!!!!!!
If any body wants to buy this phone then first go through the details review in http://www.mobique.com/sonyericsson/w550/page1.php.........u will have the most organised details review of this phone. In India, particularly in Kolkata, this fone costs around Rs.12,300/12,400........I dont have the fone. I am presently having N3230 but surely after going through the review of SE W550i, I am amazed.......i must have it.The above mentioned site has 9-page wide review with many screenshots, videos..........read it before buy.....
And last of all, if anyone wish to buy a music-phone, just go for W550i......it is gorgeous...!!!!
