Well it looks like I have become the latest victim of the dreaded White Screen of Death Syndrome!!!. I would say although the PTT button was a pain all and all it was a pretty good phone up until then. u'd think after all the complaint and such that Sony/Ericsson would have fixed this dang thing or came out with a B model or something... Back to my LG1500 till I can get through to the Warranty Center or Customer Service. Hope AT&T don't jack me around cos it's less than a year old!!! I'd say finding all these complaints that this is a phone to steer clear of...
The good thing about this phone is that I can download music from my computer and use it as a ringtones..I mean some of my buddy's phone are more expensive and have better features..but their phone's cant do that...that's the part i like about the phone...now for the bad part....IT SUCKS...cause I'm on my 3rd phone and still having the same problems with the screen going blank..yep I'm on my 3rd replacement phone..I'm afraid to call my service provider cause they're just going to send the same model back to me again..and again the screen is probably going to go blank again...oh well...guest I'll just have to wait until I have money to buy a different phone...this sucks..
I have had 2 of these phones for almost 2 years. One I have had no problems with at all. The other, however, is another story. I am on my 4th replacement in less than 6 months. The screen goes white for no reason at all. I was charged for a new phone because I was told it was water damage. It was not dropped, and it never got wet! This time, I told them NOT to send a Z525, because I don't want to have to exhange it again another 3 or 4 times before I am able to upgrade in 6 months. Take my advise, go with another phone if you have the same issues. They will gladly send you a phone from any other competitor.
I really like my phone.It's really simple to use. It's much better than my old LG.
i dont see why all you are complaining the phone is just fine i just dont like the fact that comparing to my last phone this one is harder to open
When I am forwarding my calls it is adding 1 digit in front of the number. If it is a local area also it is adding 1 so, it is not working properly
Yup, mine also just went blank about a half an hour age... And I was just searching the internet for a solution to the problem, to find out that it is a common problem that is not easy to fix! bummer
WOW! this phone is bull s***! i am on my second one in 8 months and my screen shut off again. all my pics from concerts and everything was a complete waste of effort. everthing i did with it was for nothing. its stupid, both times the phone's screens started freakin out. when i re-open the phone they are black.............forever. DONT! BUY THIS PHONE!
I don't like this piece of electronics.
I leave far a way from a cell tower, and constantly have a bad reception with this phone, missing calls, etc. I tried other cell phones at my place, and they much better connection.
Also, what drives me crazy, is that I can't silent this phone completely. For example, if I select the silent mode, but a batery is almost dead, the phone still beeps. Believe me, it is very annoying during the night time.
Yes - I loved this phone at first but now I'm experiencing the white out and scrolling screen Also I agree that the PTT buttons definitely get in the way and I have lost so many calls when the phone cuts off in the middle of a conversation. Disappointed
The only problem is the location of the PTT button. When opening the phone to answer, it is hard not to hit PTT, and the phone hangs up on the caller. Otherwise, this phone has been bullet proof and flawless. I get signals where others don't, and the battery lasts longer than all others my friends and family have.
I bought the Z525 in April. It was good until the screen went blank. When my current contract is up, I will be purchasing a different phone but will stay with AT&T. The push to talk button on the side is a pain in the glutious maximus
im finding it difficult to download pictures or mms pictures from this phone.im a cell c suscriber pls help
Nuff said! This phone is a piece of crap. After being sent a replacement, the piece of crap wiped out. Everyone who got this phone should get their money back or get another model free!
The phone I had was the z520a which is pretty much the same thing. This phone should have been recalled. I am wating for my fourth one and will be getting a different phone all together very soon. My first one stopped getting signal, second one the screen blacked out and wouldn't do anything, this third one I turned off and when I turned it back on everything on the screen was in different places and the softkeys didn't work on most menus so I counldn't make any outgoing calls, or really do anything for that matter.... Just Stay away from this phone.
I have had the device for about 7 months and of course my screen is white also. I work for T-Mobile and have still an AT@T contract. Someone told me there was a recall on the device. I am calling Sony!!! This is BS. I paid 150$ for this phone and it has pics of my dead friends and family and videos that now I can't get off of it. That is the worst part!!!!!
This phone is a serious piece of crap, nothing less. I've had 3 models and each time the screen whites out on me for no reason. I got a new one less than a month ago and even bought a sturdy case to protect it- it felt not one drop of water and was not dropped once and the screeen STILL broke in less than a month of replacing it. They're made to break. It's crap.
4 months ago i purchased a sony erickson phone, sometime last month, after every text i send, the phone shuts off, after every call the phone shuts off, in less than two weeks after the phone just shut downon its own, after purchase the phone never fell or had any bad treatment, these phones are of bad quality, if you appreciate your customers you would take these off the shelf
