I've had this phone for about a year. I like al the wallpapers. I think that there should've been more ringtones though
I'v been with a phone for 10yrs,'nd I recently bought the z500 for my wife,------nice phone,0-10-----a big 8-------better than the RazorV3 which I have.......
hey iam 16 todayi got my sony z500 today for my b-day and sooo far soo good but ireally like this phone for the styles but after reading some of the other comments i realize thatit really doesnt matter about the looks but personal the screen is a little small but if my mom knew the phone would give me problems she wouldnt have brought it i recently was with nextel and the service sucked but now iam with cingular AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST LOOKING AND BEST FUNCTIONING PHONE I HAVE EVERY HAD but if it does give me problems hey i could always trade it for another lol
I don't know where everyone is getting there information from but this handset is due to be released within Europe (including the UK/Ireland) later in 2005. Furthermore, this handset is also presented on the european sectors of the SonyEricsson website and also tagged "Coming Soon". I think it is highly inappropriate for some people announce such things when it clearly is not factual (announced by SonyEricsson). I am looking forward to getting this handset soon but I am deciding which UK network to use it with (assuming it becomes available on more than one network). Vodafone have a nasty habit of customising the handset software kernel with their own branding and preventing mp3 ringtones (the kernel is not replacable with an unbranded as Vodafone handsets are also physically branded and coded during manufacturing). I therefore may decide to go with orange.
I have a question about this phone. How much memory does it have ?
Hate it. There is a ridiculous delay when trying to type in numbers, many times some are missed, the screen is almost impossible to see in daylight (and not very intense light at that in Vancouver), low volume speaker makes it hard to hear callers, etc.
I'd rate it junk.
I love this phone. it does everything i want. mp3's and animated backgrounds. to answer a couple questions, you use the dcu-11 data cable with mobile phone monitor to send and swap anything on your phone. you can use www.mobile17.com to do whatever you want to send to your phone...or send to yourself and use the data cable to connect. k. laterzzz
ps. Get this phone. the reception is awesome....the ringtones are loud and can be mp3 music and voice, and there is a speakerphone/camera/videos!
Does anyone know how to clear the envelope icon on the phone where there is a voicemail message? I cleared all messages, and the envelope doesn't go away like it should.
you have to use "float´s mobile agent" software. You can find it searching with google. hope it helps
can any 1 plz tell me how 2 download songs or ringing tunes from computer. i already have that usb cable for cell phone. plz help me
hey there i got a question about this phone,
is it possible to connect it to youre pc and send the photo's you make on it to youre pc??
love this phone. it is my first Sony and i am glad i pick this one. i am getting reception in places i couldn't before.
Just to make it clear--I was not going to pick a phone based on the appearance. Both phones seemed to be equal in all other aspects, so since I liked the appearance of the z500 better, I was just going to go with that one.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, see the post below.
I got a cell phone on Saturday--a motorola v551, but I wanted the Sony Ericsson Z500a. They were sold out and I was told they'd recieve more the following week, so I took the motorola temporarily. I kind of like the v551 and all its functions, but I like the appearance of the z500a better. Both seem to have the same abilities (which was why I wanted the z500a, because that one just looked better to me) and about the same ratings on this site, so I was wondering which you all would recommend I go with. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or respond on this board! Thank you so much. :)
hi,i would like to know that z500a can work in pakistan or not.plz i want u to tell me b/c my dad sent me from usa
We have owned our phones for 6 mos now, and my wife has the Moto 220 which has less features, worse camera but better screen (smaller and still grainy) but is smaller for small hands/pocket, simpler ease of use. My Z500 use is more casual compared of course to my teenage daughter... :-) who has explored alllll the features. First, the cingular site on phone comparisons greatly underestimates the standard battery life. When new one phone (daughter's) wouldn't charge; after trading batteries found it was the battery unless the cold boot settled the problem. My daughter drains it every day and with little use I recharge every third day. Next time I'll upgrade the battery. Better cam. Screen is the better type with better resolution while giving up brighness-- this type is difficult to impossible to use in the Florida sun. (Hint- when camera is set to night exposure expect grainier shots). I have dropped this phone 4-5 times from waist-high on hard surface, and after removing and re-installing the battery it works fine. I have recorded clips at the Beachboys concert, a large wedding, etc, great for on-the-scene emails ringtone use etc. 10 sec/clip default but you can reset it for more. Expect memory to go fast though. Still shots shutter sound (for privacy of the subject?)is permanent but Moto 220 is silent and discreet. Most kids here have the Moto 551 (I think the cam-phone of choice at higher price) but after getting to know her phone daughter loves it. Z500 is good value though and personally like it better than the Moto 220.
