I'm on my fourth z520 and 525 in a year. Each on has lasted less than afew months and they all have the same problem. The screen goes blank and is white. No appearent reason or cause. They are junk and now Cingular refuses to replace it or let me upgrade. So in short the z525 and Cingular are not worth having.
myself and two other people who have this phone have had the same problem of the screen getting messed up when the phone was dropped once. i've had continual other problems, the most problematic one is that now my phone freezes on me, and is unable to produce any sound at all (earphone, ringing, alarm clock) and i have to restart it. this happens about 2 times a day. this is a very unreliable phone.
I dropped this phone from my shoulder ONE time less than 24 hours after I received it. The front LCD is now toast and cant be read. The rest of the phone works but the PTT button is in the way. This was the 3rd warantee replacement I've had. The first 2 phones were the z520 which did not have the annoying PTT button, however they had the same problem as everyone else. Freezing, dropped calls, have to remove the battery to end a call etc. Cingular would not send a different brand so I bought a pda phone. I am now a Blackberry addict and think that if you want PTT you should get a freakin walkie talkie.
ive had this phone for about 6 months on contract..
the first one i had suddenly decided that it would never find any serive.. so i could never ring, text or recieve calls, texts etc.
i sent it back to the company and they replaced it, but claimed the fault was down to water damage.
i am quite confident that this was't true, i never put my phone near water!
anyway, they replaced it so i didn't complain. but now i have had this new one for about a month or two.. and the the screen won't work on it, it still rings etc, but i cannot use the phone because the display doesn't come up.
when the phone was working, i didnt think it was particularly good, and i certainly wouldn't reccomend it after the trouble i have had with mine.
To begin with let me first mention that i have had this phone for a while, about 10 months.
This is my 3rd one in that time period. i have had to send it back twice becasue all of a sudden it just stopped havein service. the first time this happend, about 3 weeks after i got it, i figured i was either in a bad place for cells or server was just very busy,however i was wrong and i have to send for a new one. Same thing happened with the second one this time after 3 months. the annoying thing was that cingular kept extending my contract every time i got a new phone. but lets go on to pros and cons...
very, very light
lots of cool features( video dj and the like)
easy to customize
easy access to your email, sports and any other stuff on the web
hard to open. when i read the reviews before i got it i thought to myself that this isnt such a big deal. it is. this model is missing the spring that flips open the phone, so if you are driving, in bed or just in a rush to pick up it becomes increasingly annoying.
as stated before the phone has broken down on me twice and any attempts to convince cingular to send me an equal level phone, just not this one... but to no avail.
the picture and video qaulity is mediocre at best. and the each video only lasts for 30 seconds before you have to start a new one
no place for a added memory
speakerphone is ok, volume is a bit low.
all in all to be honest i wouldnt reccomend the phone to anyone, when people ask me why i don't like it, i just hand it to them and ask them to open it,after watching them struggle for a bit they see why...
I need to know how to get MP3's on this phone. I have the cable that hooks to the PC but dont know how it works.
I have only had this phone for six months and the screen doesn't work. I have been told there is water damage yet I will swear on my own life that my phone never touched water, it just stopped working. Very pissed off as you will not replace a FAULTY phone.
Can anyone post where to find any codes to make ringtones on sony music dJ composer ? I cant make anygood songs for ringtone. Anyone know where to get MuSiC DJ ringtone coDes? Thanks!!
its a good phone. but.....i wish it had a memory card so i could put my pics on my computer. and i wish it had better photo/video/audio recording quality
i have a z525 from MAY 2006 and it only lasted for 4MTHS now it doesn't work my display menu is blank. I can't see nothing on my phone and they wouldn't exchange it. now i'm stuckwith a phone that doesn't work
I like the features on this phone and the only thing that I have not been able to use the bluetooth connection with my PC to synchronize my address book and other staff.So, if there is a process or configuration on phone to PC authentication that I am missing, mybe you can fill me in. Appreciate it much.
its a gud phone. but it doesn't have memory card..not much space. only can put severals mp3 songs..=(
If anyone could please tell me how to download music etc. to my phone from the computer please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
i love the phone but i cant seem to figure out how to get music on it..
if you know how could you please please please e-mail me and tell me how to?
I have this phone. Its not bad, but the picture quality isnt all that good. Just recently the screen just stopped working for no reason and its just all messed up. It will still let me call out and recieve calls (most of the time) but I cant see anything on either screen. They said that all they can do is send me a new one...but the same one.
well this phone is great.. all the features are cool. not to easy to open it, like the motorola's might have to use two hands, but then it saves the long lasting of the phone know wat i mean? perfect size. awsome pictures and video. can download lots of things to it. but i live in alaska and they charge me for the downloads = $$$. whitch sucks but o well. i droped it a few times and now, the front screen is like dark and the phone dosent ring, cant call out, so imma see wat phone company can do.. i just took the battery out and restarted it, and it fixes itself forget the phone companys!!!
