the white screen is the issue which is running on some w550s. the phone restarts and then the white screen problem appears. different reasons are accounted to it: bluetooth, usb connection. i had experienced it when i had its old firmware. i brought my phone to a reflash. now its working well because the new firmware was installed. no need to worry about. just update the firmware always via the settings menu.
2.0mp camera with autofocus
expandable up to 2GB with memory stick
media player (can be used only when the phone is turned on)
64mb memory stick supplied (you need to buy a memory stick with larger capacity if you're not contented; memory stick is more expensive than MMC, SD)
walkman media player (can be used even if the phone functions are turned off)
256mb internal memory (if you're contented, you don't need to expand memory)
stylish form factor (swivel form factor)
style-up replaceable cover
no memory stick slot
poor camera in dark places
I'm interested in buying either the W550i or the K750i. Which one in your opinion is the best one to buy.
the black rubber at the back of the style-up back cover serves as a lock for the battery.
what is a white screen of death thing??...how come pple keep mentioning it...
can someone pls explain what is it exactly
thx u :)
the only problem with this phone is that it easily gets scratches in the navigation keys and in the camera area. that is why you should get a silicon or plastic case for it. but this phone is really very cool! no questions asked.
hahaha...i dropped mine several times and still working perfectly ^.^...notice that at the battery cover there is one layer of protective rubber?? ^.^
It is a superb phone, I think it is a very handy,comfortable and affordable kind of a phone. It also has very clear and loud speakers. But the one bad thing about it is that it is not sterdy, it would get a crack very easily if fell down.
I just buy this phone and it is so cool fo listen music!The boutton for gaming also cool too!!!
Its been 4 months since i bought this one and i still love it every minute:) . Especially i love the d-pad which is a pleasure to use unlike the crappy joysticks seen in most se phones including the one in K750i and W800i. . .
The mobile has good features and has a good look and feel . However, it doesn't have a card slot to increase memory.
This is available with W800
But W550's look and feel is better than W800

This phone w550i i must say is a great fone. it has all the things u r looking for no doubt about that. However, last nite while i was txting, my fone suddenly shut down by itself which i had only for 3 months. i took out the battery and put it back on again but nothing happend. A friend of mine had also the same problem. she only had it for 4 months and it stopped working..i dont know exactly what's making this problem but i do hope that someone out there can tell me what i can possibly do. plz email me..if theres anyone there who can help firstname.lastname@example.org
i just bought this about 2weeek. happy with this phone. very2 good quality of sound. but still need a bit bass element. to anybody want to buy this phone you can do it so as soon as possible. u will get more then what u pay.
you cannot get that 256mb absolutely because there are several files defaultly embedded in the phone (i.e., pictures, sounds, themes, etc.). some of those embedded files cannot be deleted because they are protected by sony ericsson.
I had this phone for about 3 months and I thought it was a great phone. It is a very stlyish phone on both the exterior and when using it but it has one major let down that all Sony Ericssons have. They are too delicate! I had mine in a case in my pocket and when I took it out to look at it, the screen had broken and I was very mad and am now selling it and am getting a Durable 6680 Nokia that you can easily change the case and you can keep in your pocket without having a bulky case there too.
bought this phone a month back
now memory has reduced from 256mb to 225mb
god knows why
anyone knowing, please help
if you want high memory capacity, you should get moto slvr L7 coz it has microSD (transflash) slot which makes the phone's memory expandable up to 1GB. but moto downloads such as themes, etc. are very few. i always prefer sony ericsson coz of many download sources. w550i is a walkman phone. the media player is organized. you can play music with the walkman application minimized, or even without turning on your phone-related functions (such as calls, SMS, etc.), just like a phone in flight mode.
