plz tell me wat is the meaning of white screen bcauz tommorow i am going to buy this ok so plz reply me & tell me about white screen.
no, you can't change the fm station using the headset. the headset has a button dedicated only for answering calls. but what is nice about its headset is that it works like an adapter wherein you can connect any stereo earphones/headphones (3.5mm stereo plug which is the most common; used in earphones/headphones of portable cd players, ipods, etc.).
Can soneone tell me whether one can change the FM radio station using the headset button just like Nokia phones.
w600, w550 white screen, mp3s, etc.
w600 is sold in select countries. it has EDGE connection (faster that GPRS). w550 has no EDGE connection. EDGE is network dependent.
PLEASE do not be worried about the white screen issue. this issue was already fixed! just update your w550 firmware via gprs. it is in the general settings menu.
64kbps,3min songs: about 90-100 mp3s can be stored on w550i's 256mb memory.
having a battery life of 3 days is somehow nice for me. to have a battery life of 4 to 5 days is a big surprise for me.
White screen issue: This issue has been resolved in newer firmware versions from Sony Ericsson.
To find out what firmware version your W550 has go to Menu -> Settings -> Update Service -> Software Version. If the second version number reads R4AB048 then we recommend that you upgrade your firmware. If it reads something else, like R4BA041, then you should be safe.
I want to ask how many songs actually can be "PlAY" properly by W550?And how many songs can be store in 256MB?
hey. im from singapore. i got this phone only recently. about 1 week ago. i dont have any problems with it. just that i think tt the battery life is a little too short. its only about 3 days. i wonder why?
hi, i have had this phone since it first came out in the uk on payg, i've never had any probs with it, i think for the price u pay its one hell of a phone, not sure what this white screen of death is, i've never had it, the screen dies go blank when in idle mode, but its supposed to, its energy saving, hope this helps

what the heck is everyone talking about some white screen thingy? i have this cool phone for more than 2 months and never encounter this problem. perhaps i already have the latest version. so quite complaining and get the latest version via gprs. and say good bye to the white screen. and stop insulting this masterpiece!
