ok guys, this is a good phone. i had this phone for a couple of days and it is amazing. u wont have to use two hand to answer a phone while u do for a flip, and u wont accidentally call somebody because the number keys are hidden. plus, the swivel design is easy to get used to. the screen is bright too. the camera is good but not good in dark areas. This phone, unlike the W900, isnt bulky so it can comfortably fit in ur pocket. the screen is pretty tough, although since my last phone was a pda with a big screen, im pretty cautious about my screen. The package is good too, comfortable and awesome headphones, and software, maunals, etc etc. and the call quality is amazing, probably because its an mp3 phone. one more thing thats amazing is the freakishly long battery life. the last time i charged my phone was when i got it. i bluetoothed the pics from my old phone, played games, eddited some contacts, called some people, and its still has 70% battery left!! the only real flaw is that it doesnt have an external or expandable memory. but who really needs memory? this phone has an in-built 256mb thingamabob. and the song quality is fantastic. and plus, since this phone is a pretty old model, its pretty cheap, especially if u trade in ur old phone. this package also comes with a white or blue shell so u can change the orange to white or blue or with both on at the same time. even though u have to pick the life defining choice on picking the optional blue or white shell, the orange is nearly perfect. i picked white cuz i think it looks better. dont worry about the keypad size cuz its good. texting is easy and i was spoiled with a touchscreen pad where theres already an english keyboard to text with. ive been cell phone hunting for about 3 months, comparing this phone with the L7, treo, E770, V3 models, NEC L1, Nokia N92, N91, N71, and i dont reget my decision. I highly recommend this phone. who cares if its not 3G, JUST BUY IT!

This phone in Lithuania costs 1169Lt = 417$. not fear :(. i dont have this amount of money.
guys i downloaded a java download manager called mobilget. it can download multiples files at the same time:) . only difficulty is that its in russian:(
erm...wierd question...of coz most of functions can be done wif the fon closed unless u wanna use the numberpad XD...and the swivel is strong...unless u hit it REALLY hard a lotta times or u PURPOSELY try to break it....:P...
Hi to all,
Is it true that most functions can be done with the phone in the closed position? For example can one browse the phone's menu, answer a call, etc. in the closed position? And how strong is the phone's swivel joint?
Sorry for my ignorance but I have never owned a swivel phone before and I am seeking some answers before buying one someday.
you can only view 3gp videos which have a resolution of 176x 144 on this cell..
the video u were tryig must have been of some other resolution..
try converting it with xilisoft video converter and then play on ur phone..that should solve ur problem..

"Its worthy having SE W 550"
I bought the handset a week back for RS 13,000 in Bangalore. Sexy Phone.It exceeds everyones expectations. Good Quality Display, Sounds too good. You can use MP3 songs for anything (Ringtone, Alarm, Message Tne).
* For every outgoing call you can see the call timer, after ending the call at the right extreme corner of display for 3 Secs.
* Messages that are pending/to be delivered are displayed by a mail symbol at the top of the display.
* Menu and options - Very fast response
* Camera is good and options are user friendly.
* FM is good compared to NOKIA Phones.
* No Joystick, so no problem like K750i.
* Three options to unlock the phone (Button at the left side panel, *, Open the phone.
* Keypad is small but soft and smooth. Once u get used too, u can type messages in secs.
* External speaker - Best in class, u cannot imagine the quality of sound and esp. BASS
Overall a good phone to have. Cheap and best. It attracts others when you use the phone. Whoever looks at the phone. They cannot beleive the cost and the features.
Thanks For SE.
A Few Thing I want to Ask all those who are holding W550i with them.
1. Does this phone has Message Counters so that we could have records of how much SMS send and recieved?
2. Camera Quality better than of Nokia 6630 or not?
3. Is there diffrent memory size reserved for Videos or MP3 or another Java applications if yes what is the max. size of memory alloted to MP3's and to Video's?
4. Are we able to watch Video's in Full screen Mode or not? cuase I know previously in my D500 this function is not there.
5. Leaving 3GP which are the other formats of Video does this phone supports? also tell me the Audio Extensions?
6. FM Radio is better than old black and white Nokia phones or not?
7. Wallpaers are totally screen fit or like in location fitting like symbian phones of Nokia?
These are some queries I just want to ask from you people and if any one having better choices do post it. Mail me your answers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of Thanks in Advance Buddies.....
I cant view videos that are in 3gp format. Anyone know why and if I can fix this?
Apart from that ive had the phone a week and its brilliant. Always used Nokia but wont be going back.
I would definitely recommend this fone. i had it since christmas and iv never had any problems with it. the camera is superb. the mp3 player is perfect and u can use mp3 songs as your ringtones etc. Also, unlike the w800, it catches ur eye. if ur not 2 sure whether 2 buy this fone oe not, i say go 4 it. iv often been led wrong by inaccurate opinions but this is definitely the best fone ive ever had. just had 2 let yas no!
