This phone was just want I needed for 4 years (just like others) and is now turning off. I missed calls and had no way of knowing it. One thing -- I was always careful and had never dropped the phone until about a week ago, on concrete. No marks though and it seemed to work fine. Now this.
In checking on the web, other Ericsson models appear to have the same problem and some have been recalled. Iphone here I come.
This phone I got about four years ago I had to send it back once due to the screen part of the phone being loose and now it turns itself off. It doesn't matter what I am doing with it. I don't like this phone! I would not recommend it to anyone!
gay phone, im only getting it cuz its this or nothin, get the LG xenon everyone
There are no words to describe how much I adore this phone. One of the best items I've ever purchased. It's still great after over 3 years of use.
I got this phone and I loved it until the screen went black and then white and stayed there I had the phone for three years and I do miss it only it had good sound quality and good volume control,Ionly hate that my neice washed it in her washing machine or I would be talking on it today got it in 2006 love love loved it
I got this phone 3 years ago and loved it till the screen went white. The screen would flip nonstop and then it just went black and wouldnt work. So i sent it back and they sent me another one. Within 3 months it did the exact same thing. I got a new phone which I liked but i lost the battery, so my friend gave me his spare phone which happened to be the same Z525 model. I am now dealing with a white/flipping screen once again. I hate this phone with a burning passion and would NEVER recommend it to anyone.
good: its soo simple, easy, cheap and has all the things you need (blue tooth, camera, video etc)
bad: it turns of randomly even when fully charged

I am doing center, toggle down(1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times). Am I missing something? I've tried this sequence about a dozen times.
hi, i bought this phone and it did not work. unfortunately i got the "White Screen of Death" i hate this phone and would not reccommend it for anyone
i tried to copy my phone book to my sim (i also have the WSOD ) but i may have locked my phone. everytime i push the 'enter' button, it gives out a 'do-do, dit-do' tone. help!
I loved this phone. It was easy to navigate and soft on the hands. My family got 4 because they were all free with our plan. An all 4 phones, the flip function was faulty as they all went blank! They all just got white eventually and we had to navigate with our memory until we got a new one! Overall we had it for about 2yrs until they gradually started dying one by one. It's not good for texting.

My phone turns off suddenlt when I squeeze it or close it to fast. i think something is loose. help?
i had this phone.. its great .. one of the best .. BUT
* it don't support memory cards and its memory only 16 MB!
* the screen went white 3 times in 4 years of usage.. and the last time the agency didn't have spare parts for it.. and still don't.....
I've had my phone* for a little over 2 years and it worked just fine but just the other day I got a white screen and now I can't see what numbers I'm dialing, any missed calls or text messages. This really limits my use of the phone and forces me to look into getting a new phone.
my phone has suddenly stopped ringing.It is on vibration mode only.I cant figure it out how to on the ringing.plzz help
My screen on this phone went out.
It went out slowly, though.
As if in sessions.
It began with a delay, then it blinked at times,
then I had to close & reopen it, then I had to
turn it off, then I had to remove the battery,
THEN it finally just went blank completely.
I could still recieve calls and texts and call
people, but the screen was just white so I couldnt
SEE the numbers I typed, see whose call I missed,
or see the messages I recieved.
I gave up on it and replaced it with a Rokr.
I HATE this phone. My Sony is 2 years old and from day one I have had nothing but problems. This phone shuts itself off even when it has a full charge randomly. Speaking of the charge. Sometimes a full charge will last several day and sometimes it last only a few hours. One day I had a full charge when I left home a few hours later I wanted to get a number off of it. Once I accessed my address book my phone when dead from lack of charge. I am finally getting new phones for my husband and myself and getting rid of this piece of s--t.
federico, 27 Jan 2008If you got the white screen BUT the phone makes and receive calls, the phone is not "dead", th... moreI just got the WSOD. I think I'm just gonna replace the phone with an iphone, but I'd like to replace the flex cable to get as much stuff off my phone as possible before I dump it.
Do you know of any websites where you can see how to replace the flex cable. I found one at http://www.2valor.com/Service/dface/ERIZ520.asp but this page is all just picutres (which is great) but when I look up the flex cables on ebay, it looks way different... or maybe I just don't get it cause I havne't taken my phone apart yet... ?
Also, if anyone wants the "how to" to get your contacts on Sim, I found it at this forum. http://www.fixya.com/support/t253640-blank_screen_sony_ericsson_z525a
If you scroll down it's there. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm going to soon. I figured I'll load all my contacts on Sim before I try to open my phone and replace the cable.
