Newton, when in the video mode in the camera, press the centre button of the stylus to bring up the settings menu. Click on 'Shoot mode' and then select 'High quality video'. I am sure it is set to 'For picture message' on your phone.
Once you do this, you will not only be able to record videos sans any restrictions, the quality (along with the file size) will also increase significantly.
Looks great, sounds great, has everything.........Too bad it's my brother.
That 25mb is not gone.. It is used for the operating systems, factory-pre-installed games, themes, sounds, and pictures.
This happens with the older versions of w550i. Some of my friends also had the same problem. Try to bring it to SE centre n upgrade your firmware. Usually this will solve the problem. But if not, ask the shop/dealer to have the phone replaced..

To check what version without key in the key command, you may check it this way:
- Update service
- Software version
how do you know what version of firm ware do you have? what do you key in? i knew that before, i just forgot.
Got my SE 550i for almost 2 months by now. Other than the standard issues and good things, I would like to share my finding on those very minor areas for this phone. If anyone else facing the same and able to solve it, let me know ya? ;)
So far, my phone did crash for once with any known reason. After restart, it deleted all my themes, games, application and ringtones but pictures (wallpaper) still stay on. After that, now everything seem like performing normally after I done a "Master Reset".
If switch to camera mode or walkman mode and then back to the main menu screen, I notice that if press on the left "soft" key, the lower portion of the screen will flicker when using normal theme. If using the given "BreaK Beat" or "Club Pulse" themes which are different format from the standard theme, this won't happen.
Something using the "Notes", the content didn't display. If reboot the phone, then it back to normal. Anyhow, I still don't know how to simulate this issue again. This also same for the sound volume. Sometime, it just go very soft with any known reason. After reboot the phone, then will back to normal. Luckily, I only faced these 2 issues once.
Something extra good thing if anyone like me, always like to change theme, you can download and install (mostly) theme made for SE 750i which you can find it free on the net and a lot of them. As far I notice that, SE750i, SE800i, SE550i able to same the same theme.
The current firmware I am using now is R4AB048, anyone knows if the new firmware is available? :)
Bought this phone last week. It's has great sound and display. Good battery life too.
Too bad for the memory space and also the network provider name can't be remove.

"First one is for some reason i cant forward sms's to another number it tell me the message contains too many characters"
Did u set the sms size to max available??
I have had this phone now since Xmas and its has been performing real nice and enjoy all the features.There are some things that i dont like cause i had a D500 previously where once could record hours of video footage but on this one you are able just to record a few seconds. I have found to problems with the phone so far that irrates me. First one is for some reason i cant forward sms's to another number it tell me the message contains too many characters, it does matter how short or long the message is. The other one is when i have finished a call there is no-where one can see how long i was on that call. Any of you guys know if there is fix for this??? I am thinking of maybe taking it back the shop and getting a software upgrade if that is what is neccessary to sort the problem. Any ideas/suggestions???
Gemma and gobo, if you are looking for a 'very good' camera, then there are better products out there. But if you are looking for an all-in-one entertainment gadget that can make/receive calls and also click pictures/videos, then you should not spare a thought for any other phone.
Forgot to mention, the phone supports mp4 and 3gp videos. And the camera interface works like a cybershot camera. Cool.
I just got this phone for a few days and im really impressed with it! Excellent screen, superb speakers and decend battery life. Its a real head turner. For me, the 256mb is more than enough to store a bunch of songs, music videos, themes and games. The camera quality is just average, but the other features are fantastic. Definitely worth its price tag!
