this is the best phone i've ad! its really tiny dead simple! got everything on it! 10 out of 10!
this phone is absolutely fantastic, got it a few weeks ago and i am really pleased. its got everything i need and looks great. i love the fact you can really personalise it. ie, the cover and the light effects. i didnt think that the picture quality would be as good as it is either. made up!
I love this phone!
its got everything u need!
the camera is fab
it looks gr8 and easy 2 use!!!
Hi, I want to purchase this phone but the one ? I have before I go buy it is, Can you make a recorded sound a ringer? You know how you can record things, I just want to know if I can set one of those as a ringer.
to those of you who want to fit more songs into it, i suggest using an MP3 sound cutter, cut out certain segments, and lower the bitrate to about 96 or 80. the sound quality won't be that bad, and it certainly saves up a lot of space. =).
Has anyone noticed how easy it is to scratch the screen?? Mine has scratched heaps and ive only had it for 2 weeks, Im really really sad. Apart from that i love my phone, Im gonna try and take it back and get a new one.
i have this phone , and , i really like it its very nice, is low price but no lack in features
mp3player (actually its best use, is for mp3 tones)
VGA & video cam (desent pictures , and the video can have up to 20 min or more, )
with 16Mb is good enough for pics , and some good videos and mp3 tones ;)
To April Trammell and others who are having problems with this phone it has serious problems you all need to check out the Cingular SupportForums and check out the Sony Ericcson section and you will see.
I've only ever had Ericsson phones, including the Z600 (which my Mum now uses and refuses to give back :-D). Iíve come to prefer clamshells or flips over the soap-bar designs specifically because they don't need a keypad lock, the screen is protected and also because you flip them open to use they have bigger keys, and the mic is in the right place (i.e. next to your mouth).
The Z600 was previously my favourite phone even if it was a little on the big side. I WAS considering going for one of the Samsung range and then this little beauty came on the market. True itís typically only available in the girly white version with white or pink fascias, even though Sony-Ericsson actually make a grey version (with grey and dark blue fascias), but Iím thinking that the white gloss body of the phone is going to look great with some gunmetal trim. Just as soon as someone gets round to making them for the Z520; the damn thing is so new in the UK, most mobile phone shop staff here still donít even recognise it! Failing that I can always airbrush the pink fascia to something I do like.
As for the features, the most important thing to me in a phone is the phone stuff. Iíve had a K700i in the past, and never used half the stuff on it. I donít need FM radio, mp3 players or multi-megapixel cameras, I've got dedicated versions of each already. The antenna on the Z520 is excellent (and Iím a GSM engineer), the phone book is well organised, the T9 software is a huge advancement over the early Ericsson attempts and the light functions are cool, well for a social-use phone anyway, maybe not for the office but thatís covered. Also this phone can use full mp3 tracks as ringtones, which the K700 canít. All in all, a little cracker... If you can find it in grey.
I bought this phone from ebay and am using it with tmobile in illinois. The reception is incredible. The funtionality of thie phone beats many clamshells out there.
Good things -
1) the software is very quick compared to the t610 i had before. It has good games and allows a great deal of modification.
2) its light wieght and eay to use.
3) has bluetooth
4) battery life is good- Can go up 3 days without charging.
The only problems i've seen with this phone are.
1) it takes pics randomly in the pocket ...not everytime..like once in a week.
2) it keeps resetting the rite and left navigation shortcut keys. Does this happen to anyone else?
3) the exterior screen is hard to read. Not very good color. Also the inside screen it not the best in the market.
4) camera, not somethin i wud depend on for good pics.
I got the data cable today. And trasferred pics and songs onto the phone. You can get mp3 shrinking tools from www.downloads.com
The phone has no radio. Works fine, but it's
terrible to use it without earphones. Very fastly the head aches a no way to continue speaking, it seems has some problem with microphone.And it always shots unwanted photos or videos because of the to sensitive
video/camera button...Better Z600...no comparison with this "crap".
if u set a photo as a background will it fill up the whole screen coz it dosnt fill the whole screen on the se k500i!
oh and can you set a photo as a background for the external screen?
Is there alarm clock for this phone? And is there FM radio for this phone? Anyone please answer. Thank you. I might be getting this phone but i just want to check out if there is alarm clock and FM radio.
i hv this phone for about 2 weeks..
this phone have all function but dont have the card slot..the video cam is only for 10sec..the sound and the screen was great..
the stylish phone that hve all function u need..
well, I'm thiking of buying one.
I live in The Netherlands so don't expect any problems with the Z520i.
I think the Cingular/SE- software combination is what is wrong!
No such (big) problems in my country, with this phone.
Hmm... I have this phone and until now I do not see any problem, everything working fine and very ok :D
It is the best sony ericsson champsell that every been.
is it that memory leak problem? if it's that one, i haven't encounted any problems regarding that... best thing to do is shut the phone off for at least a min or so each day

I bought my phone abuot a month ago.. and have been gettin some minor problems.. and everythin's on the forum..
