I ll tell ya what i did exactly stepwise.... There is no need for a pc.
1. start update service that comes in the phone itself. Its under settings>general menu(one of the reasons why i chose w550i over w800i/k750i)
2. The device mgmt processing... screen comes up
3. after a short while a new screen screen pops up asking u to confirm if u wanna download the update package. Its about 1.9 mb
4. upon pressing yes, the download starts and it completed in 5 mins
5. then a message pops up saying tht the phone will restart and the software installation will take place and meanwhile the phone functions would be unavailable
6. then i pressed ok and then the phone restarted...
7. upon restart a new update service screen came up and the installation started with a progress bar. It took bout 30 minutes.
8. then finally the phone restarted again went to standby ....and there u have the new firmware(R4CB020)!
how do you update the firmware trooo gprs and can u do it on a w800i
when i go for the update service via gprs it says i have the latest firmware installed but the new one is released!!
Plaese a Humble request to all W550 Holders.
I also own this phone
1. How could I check the Firmware as I am new to SE?
2. How can we apply Password to any file or folder?
3. Which sound format supported by this phone except MP4, MP3, WAV, AMR.?
Please answer my questions I will be thankful to you ... my mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org please send me the answers.
Few More thing I want to tell you ...
Flash can also be used a torch.
Data Cable can also be used as charging.
Phone can be switched off and only Walkman can be used that means no connection to GSM just Walkman and alarms and reminders of Phone.
Can also record the conversation of call.
Absolutely while calling you can record the conversation. While on call come to options there last or second last option will be of record sound .,. click on it and it will automatically start to rtecord the sound. Recorder automatically stops when call stops.
You can get your recorded sound in sounds under file manager.
can some1 plz tell me whilest making a call can u record the voice of other person telking
hi anirudh, update ur firmware to the latest via gprs. Its absolutely free. I did it yesterday and i dont face any probs til now...
hi guys.. i was very happy with my w550i until recently it suffered a WSOD.[for first time readers it means my w550i crashed and was left only with a white screen and wasn't responding to anything at all]. my biggest mistake was to purchase it without warranty so as to save some 2000 rupees.. now i took it to the dealer and he very coolly told me to spend 800 rupees for a new software flash.. i agreed and got my cell bak.. to my horror my model changed to w550c. after checkin i got that the chinese firmware was loaded upon asking the guy said the international firmware was crashing on it over n over again.. all was fine and done till i finally used my now w550c for it's real work.. music thru it's blastin speakers!!
to my horror!! it just sounded like sound from a k750/w800 speaker.. the beats were still loud as they should be but the voice of the song had reduced.. it was like the speakers before used to blast the voice thru dem but not now.. only the beats blast and the voice seems like very suppressed..
i tried the mp's too which i had before re flashing in case of the bitrate problem but invain. so now the biggest charm for my w550i has gone as the reproduction of the sound isn't phenomenal any more..
any help or suggestions guys.? i'm ready to do anything to get it's real speaker performance bak..
plzz help me.. is it because of the firm ware change or some other bug??!!
I liked it, I can use it inside the aircraft as mobile can be switched off and can work in MP3 only mode.
I fell for it !
The new firmware R4CB020 is out !!!!!!!!!!!! I updated my firmware over the GPRS using the update service function (really innovative technology)! It was really cool and simple. It took me about 30 minutes for the whole process. I dunno what issues have been fixed in this version since i didnt have any probs already with the previous firmware. One thing i noticed so far is that the stereo widening option gets saved this time ! Besides i feel the in-built netfront browser has been updated coz my homepage looks a bit different this time( BBC PDA edition) . I ll post more about the new fixes as soon as i discover them.
