w600 is for the North American market, where as the w550 is for the Euro market.... w600 also has a few more fixed bugs that the w550 had
Watz da different between da W550i??????(plz tell me if u had any answers
I was wondering if this phone has the ability to broadcast the mp3's via blue tooth to a wireless headset. If not does anyone know which phones will or if it is even possible.
This phone is one of the best pnones I ever owned. And for a guy who changes phones regulaly, I think I will settle with baby for a whole...she's very user friendly, the walkman player is exceptional, only there is a no crossfading, so there is a gat between songs, The Stereo speakers has great punch for it size....Maybe the memory should be expandable...
I got this phone for about 2 months and I never had any problems with it until I got the white screen of death. Yes you guessed it, I have to send it in for repairs.
Other than that issue, the phone design is not bad. the features on the phone are mind boggling. The reception is great. all in all I give it a 7.5 out of 10.
I just got this phone over the weekend. I love everything about it (especially after the horrible nokia i had). It actually comes with two faceplates: the orange pictured, and a very dark blue one.
can you set mp3 or wav files for your ringtones ? and what is up with the WHITE SCREEN OF DEATH is there any way you can fix that without sending it to sony?
great phone with great features...sound quality is great..picture quality is also good..memory slot is missing...overall good value for money.....
hey people. does this phone have changable covers or is it just the w550. thankyou!
do you think a firware update will help making the camera better? like less noisy? its so annoying. i got this for my gf and now i am stuck with something no one wants.
I had the phone 3 weeks and started having glitches. I'd get a TM and open to reply and it would turn itself off. Then I'd get a call try to go handsfree and it would turn itself off. Then I'd get a call and it would turn itself off! Then the back light went out. I was past my 15 day return policy so off to Arvato Services Inc. SEMC Repair Center it goes. Hope I get it back soon. I really like listening to the radio on it!
this phoneh have like the worst camera sony ever made.
still the megabass is nice!. for some reason the version i tested didn't have firmware update over-the-air.
I've had both the w550i and the w600i. The w550i is the european model and the w600i is the American model.
I had horrible reception with total blackouts in some areas when using the w550i in America. I replaced it with a w600i and the problem dissapeared. The reason is that the w600i utilizes 25% more cell phone towers than the w550i.
The w550i also had a glitch where it would not save my pictures after i took them. It would say "saving" then just dump me back to the previous menu. The problem was fixed with the w600i.
Beware upgrading your firmware (the software of the phone). Sony has no official upgrade to my knowledge and I have heard numerous accounts of people rendering their phone useless by attempting to do so.
The only complaint I have with this phone is the battery life. It drains very quickly when you utilize the many features such as camera/video/games/music. When I had the N-Gage QD, my battery would last like 10 hours if I played games. This phone lasts around 3.
I hear many people complaining about the limited 256 megs of memory. While I would like a memory stick for pictures, 256 megs is plenty of memory for a cellphone. This isn't an ipod or a digital camera, its is a phone....one with great features and a cheap pricetag. Why would you want 2 billions songs on a cellphone? 80 is plenty.
I give the design a 9 (swivel is sometimes a pain), Features a 10, and performance a 7 (due to the horrible battery life)
I bought this phne and it is excellent. The only problem is that i cant get my computer to run the software in 98se because it only supports win 2000+. is there a program i can download to counteract this?
I got the white screen as well... I'm on a mac so I thought maybe (since it's not supported) that screwed it up. but after many frustrating attempts at removing the battery, finally I just let the white screen sit and had it plugged into the power cord. after about 20min. It came back. no problem...?
for the money this should not happen!
and to bongo:
the w600 is not the same as the w550. well almost. the w600 is quad-band, making it much easier to connect to the plentiful 850mhz bands here in the states.
