ok now its been 1 month since i got w550, got white screen, replaced the cell, now i think this one has a new firmware so its working pretty good. i didnt install new themes, no new games, just mp3s and its working fine. the camera is a bit disappointing but still other features cover that. i'm happy with this phone, recommended!
yeah... i got this phone a couple days ago. it's pretty confusing to use at first, but i got the hang of it. so, does anyone here know how to set the mp3 as your ringtone? that's what i'm trying to figure out.
hi im saving up for a phone and cant decide wether 2 get the K750I or the W550I i curently have the K700 and my brother has the K750I but i dont no anybody with the W550 does anyone know wich phone is beter as both are a similar price fanks
and whats white screen
DietMP3 is the best mp3 compressor. 64kbps, 22khz mp3 file sounds like a 96kbps, 44khz mp3 file. you can download it at: www.download.com.
by the way, walkman media player can also play audio aac (m4a), which is developed by apple for thier iPods. it is better than mp3 but i cant still find a fast mp3-aac converter.
i went to an authorized distributor of sony ericsson just this afternoon and they said that all new w550i's are now installed with the latest firmware making it stable (meaning the white screen issue was fixed). this phone is really cool. nothing to worry about its functions. the only problem with it is its camera which is when used in dark places (or at night time), somewhat like bright dots appear in the taken picture. but i tell you that this phone is really nice. cool video, cool keypad, cool design, and of course, cool stereo speakers. an equalizer is embedded in the walkman media player so that you can adjust the sound according to your preference. and you can use the walkman media player alone (meaning you can disable phone functions; just like a phone in flight mode). please do not be confused. the white screen issue is fixed!!! just be cautious in installing java apps/games...
the video of course takes sound together...jez that its soft if u had not upgraded the firmware..
its not impossible...my msgin ring is an mp3 file...and the video length depends on how much memory u have left to store the video..enjoy ^^
One of my friends said that in the video recording of Sony Ericsson w550i, sound doesn't get recorded along with the video, is that true?
its possible if you're trying to make the mp3 file as your ringtone although at times the phone will set the profile a lil bit late, however it is impossible if you're trying to make the mp3 file as your message alert tone. you need an audio grabber or a converter for your file.
To feroz....you can store abt 50-60 songs depending on the bit rate...if you encode the songs at 64kbps you can very well store 60-70 songs...
urm..i bought this phone yesterday....
so far the function is all okay...but...i'm still confuse how to get the ringtone....??? i've already transfer the file into the walkman but when i tried to get the song to be my ringtone it doesnt work at all.... how? canm anyone email me n guide me from the first thingy! plz!
hello! i just wanna ask what is the video lenght of the fone? is it upto 1 hour? or just minutes? please reply anyone...
i've had mine since it first came out here in the uk, i'll give it 9/10, i'm totally hooked on this phone, if theres anything out there that has all the same features & costs the same, i haven't found it yet.
i going to buy this phone 2moro. hope no white screen happen to my phone. peace :)
Damn good phone, won it in a competition and the white screen of death is non-existent to me so far. I have heard complaints about the 256 MB you get but if you want one with a memory stick slot why don't you just buy the W800i its only an RM25 extra, also if you use a memory stick you can't download or share anything if you lose it or get it corrupted
i think that the problem of someone here about his/her phone's bluetooth is in the bluetooth chip inside the phone...i have a friend who has a nokia phone which had a bluetooth problem...he brought the phone to a service center and they say that the problem is in its somewhat they called bluetooth chip...
