I just got this phone a few days ago, it seems pretty nice.It has froze a couple of times.I dont really like the camera quality.Neither I like the size but it has some pretty good reception. Anyways I got the usb data cable to work with my computer. If you have trouble connecting it, IM me at (AIM)lOcCartmanl or MSN firstname.lastname@example.org.
This phone look nice...does they have it M'sia and could sum1 tell me wat the price is?
Hi, I would like to know if this model has Bluetooht, can you tell me please?
I just got the phone and after charing the unit overnight (10 hours), the unit started blinking and the on off switch did not respond. Troubleshooting instructions suggest battery replacement. I am taking it back and will try something else. I always trusted Sony quality and this unit became my first disappointment. But then My Sony experience has always been with electronics, not with telecommunications, e.g. Phones. Sony must stick to its core products where they are top of the world.
Sony ericsson Is a good phone but picture quality, and reception is not all that great.
I have had my phone for about 4 months and had no serious problems with it. I would go with this phone or with a Nokia. That has great reception.
And about the data for the usb for the ericsson phone got to www.sonyericsson.com.
You will find it in there. But no promisses it will work, i have one and I can't get it to work on my computer. It can't find my phone so if you have better luck maybe you could help me out. Thanks.
I like this phone, reception is good. looks wise its a smart phone. The only drawback which I have noticed so far is its short battery life. it droops dead in few hours, even if you don't talk much.
But its a good as a fancy phone.:)))
well....the screen outdoors is just about the worst i've ever seen....we got 2 of these phones at the same time and we both developed problems with the batteries....phones turning off because of batt....lo talk times....hard to charge...this is 2 phones, 2,226 miles apart....it's the phones folks, not us
First off, gotta say that this phone is light. It's not too heavy on my belt, or in my pocket. It can go virtually anywhere with me, which I like, cause I'm always on the move somewhere.
I love this phone, the features are great, I'm still having some trouble figuring out the wireless internet on my phone, but I;ve only had it for about 4 days. Got it on 4/21/05. THe camera will come in handy for my daughter is born in September, I mean it's already being used quite frequently, but when the time comes, it'll be great Anyway, the phone is easy to use and navigate, which is a big plus. For people with big fingers, they may have a problem pressing the buttons as they are set virtually flush with the case of the phone, but you do hear an audible click, and a tone from the keypad.
Service wise, as far as actually using the phone for its intended purpose, this baby gets a A++++++++. Signal has never been stronger, have NOT dropped ANY calls thus far, reception is crystal clear. When I say this, folks I mean it, it's sounds like the person you're talking to is right next to you. Most people exaggerate when they say this, but I mean. I've had 6 different phone models, Nokia and Motorola, thru 5 different cellular providers, and the Sony Ericsson Z500a thru Cingular is a SOLID performer. I also used to work for Cingular, so I know a lot about phones, and how things work internally.
I am VERY impressed with this phone. Rock on Sony and Cingular!!!!!
I love this phone it is cool how you can record anything and make it a ring tone and how you can use speakerphone. Yeah the screen isn't top notch but it is good enough for me. I love this phone I recently had an LG, Motorolla, and a Samsung and all did not work as good as the Z500
I am first of all delighted there is no antenna to break on this phone!!! The reception is absolutely phenomenal!!! I have no problems with the size of the phone...that is perfect....HOwEveR.....the screen is cheese city!!! Much too small and extremely did I say extremely yes extremely washed out. The screen is not cutting edge technology...and yes that is a pun on the edge. I'm sorry sony...but I used to be a sony only kinda guy.
Sony Ericsson needs to address the major battery problem with this phone. It works fine for the first month or two and then battery begins to malfunction. Needs to be charged every day even for very light usage. It will drain from 1/4 down to nothing in minutes. I have had this problem with multiple batteries on this phone.
Until Sony/Ericsson fixes this problem, I would not reccomend this phone. Other then this major problem I like the phone.
I just got this phone a little bit ago and didnt research it before i got it. Because ive only used it a few times i did notice it delays or something when you answer it and you cant hear anything for a second or two. Is this in every phone or just a defect in the one i have?
This phone has very poor battery life. My phone also keeps freezing up on me, but other than that I live the Sony Ericsson Z500.
This phone is very poor battery life. I almost have to recharge it every day and not
using it much.
Another site for Z500a Accessories including the "USB Cable" for transfering to/from the computer. Haven't used it... Good luck...
Lots of accessories for Z500a
Haven't ordered from them myself, yet.
