For the new firmware, I didn't face any "missing" or "deleted" item by the phone when restart.
Because this phone is using its own internal memory space to store both system and user (that we uploaded ourselves) files, therefore, I would suggest if upload files, use the "Phone Mode" rather than connect the phone as a usb storage device, which after you finish transfering the file, you won't need to restart the phone.
If you do connect the phone as usb storage device, please please, remember to "safely remove the usb storage device" first from your pc, only then disconnect your phone from the usb cable, or else you might end up causing files "deleted" from your phone.
One thing, I notice still in the new firmware is that the shortcut assignment. Even I have assigned "Settings" to the left key and "Wallpaper" to the right key. But if I restart my phone, the shortcut key will reset back to its original shortcut assignment, which is "Write New" to the left key and nothing being assigned to the right key. Anyone else is facing this??
ei just want to ask... what is the difference between the W600 and W550?? what phone has more features? and which is better??
Hi, is the screen saver really last just for less than a minute? or can it be longer? thanks, i hope to receive a reply on this. and you are right.. this phone is great!
i too have upgraded firmware to R4BAO41 . i did it from the phone itself via gprs. thats so cool:) . it just took me bout 30 seconds and i need not run to se service center anymore. by the way i still feel there are a few bugs that are unfixed .some of my mp3 files and some themes vanish out of my phone during restart. . this is a bit annoying. anybody facin this prob. but still i love this phone
Inside the w550i box, you will find only 1 (ONE) headset unit, with 3 (THREE) rubber earpieces in 3 different diametres, that is, small, medium and large.
By the way, why did you mention that you're using Nokia 6630? Is there any relationship between the Sony Ericsson w550i headset and the Nokia 6630? :p
Can anyone tell me that , How many earphones are given with the phone in the box and is this is good for me (i m using Nokia 6630) Please. I will really appreciate the kind honour
Hello. How do i check my phone's firmware version? And where and how can i upgrade it to the latest? Thanks in advance.
Just got my latest firmware from the SE Service Center. It is now:
So far has solved all my minor bugs and seem like working fine now. Is anyone else having this version and increase the original performance compare with the older firware?
For anyone would like to convert mpeg or wmv or avi file to mp4 video, you can try mpegable X4 Live from http://www.mpegable.com/. Quite easy to use and you are able to find its crack from the net too.
Hi all..Where could i download a gud .3gp converter? I have tried convertin videos using ImToo video converter but wheneva i convert it, its askin for a software registration no. & etc. So, if i ignore those msgz, Im only able to convert 1-2mins of videos only. This is rili annoyin.
So, do u guyz out there have de full version of this software or pls recommend ne other gud converter so tat i can save & play all my fav. videos in full. Besides, I have read from those forums tat we can save this phone memory by convertin all mp3 songs to mp4 format & de quality is de same as mp3. Izit true? If yes, pls lemme noe. THX ALOT in advance!!
hey all i wanted to know how can we play .aac files when we recieve it thru blutooth,it gets saved in others.
Besides if the screen of K750 n w550 is the same then why is clarity not up to the mark of w550
THX alot Haslan. Now i can play videos in full screen. Keep up yo gud work. If there's ne doubt in future, I'll post it here. SE W550i rili rox!!!
the explanation is pretty simple. the connector also serves as a mic and thereby you can use the headphones to answer calls too. if there was a standard jack on phone instead then where ll you have the mic. :)
hmmm...don't worry!this is how you can view your video on full screen mode!
you MUST use Walkman function to view fullscreen video......
i teach you.....
open menu-->highlight WALKMAN-->highlight VIDEO-->press open-->choose your video-->click play-->click more-->select FULLSCREEN
note:but!this function only works on the selected video,for the next video,it will be view in normal screen!
Just bot the 550 for my wife as a Valentine's gift.
So far, I'm more than pleased with the audio quality.
The MegaBass churns out really good sound that will really give the iPod a run for its money. Anyway, I heard the same MP3 song from the iPod Nano and 550 and I would say the 550 sounds better than the Nano.
The only gripe I have with this phone is the audio jack.....why on earth can't SE use a standard 3.5mm audio jack direcctly on the phone, but had to use a connector?
I bought this masterpiece 3days ago. I dunno how to view videos in full screen using this phone. I have tranferred videos from pc using bluetooth to this phone but when i view it, its not on full screen. This rili dissappoints me. PLZ teach me how to do it. THX alot!!
i always used to have a bit of a problem with the se joysticks. they wear out fast . . even in K750i and w800i. but this W550i navigation system is too awesome. it has a circular 8 way button and a center button. i have never misfired any key til now:) and this one will last very very long i think. k ppl thats enough of readin reviews here. just get the phone and you'll know what am talkin bout:)
after readin some of these reviews i have finally bought this phone. man. . what an amazing piece of technology. the display and the sound is mind blowing. sony means pure quality. nokia cant even come any closer to this quality even in their top notch models. the one i bought came with d latest firmware and i have no probs. besides this phone has more features than k750i and w800i .
