hello,i belive sony ericsson z525 it`s a truly performant phone,i, personaly,have never had trouble with it.still, i wouldnt recomand it for exacting people
Hi, I am using Sony Ericsson Z525 for last 8 months, but from the begining the screen goes black and sometimes it is off during talk time. Moreover the earphone cable does not work for last one month. Any one who can tell me what I can do to get the proper service from my phone set. Tahnks
i've had my sony z525 for a year and it has been an absolutely awsome phone. i've even changed the look of it several times by changing the faceplate. if taken care of it will last, that's a always been my thought!
Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could answer this question: My brother told me my phone(sony ericsson Z525, is mp3 capable. Will someone tell me if this is true and if it is how do I use it, since I can't seem to find that feature. Thanks!
I have a question regarding this phone, I have since 1 week and something is bothering me: both screens go black very quicly when the phone is open and not in use but also when I'm having a conversation or sending an sms, or something via bluetooth ! The inside screen first fades like when a phone goes in sleep mode and then shuts. The phone doesn't shut completely just the screen. Is this normal? If yes is there a way to avoid this?
thanks in advance
Ive broken this phone 3 times in less then a year its a piece of shit.
My phone still has the original plastic covering on the outer LCD screen, and the phone is already MESSED UP!!! when the outer cover lasts longer than the phone itself (i do not have a case for it, which means it is definately able to peel off) then that is a PROBLEM!!!
This phone is rediculous. It was a good phone to begin with, but then later on, the screen died out. It will randomly work (around once every 12 times I turn it on ,, the main screen doesn't work ,, and the only way for me to get the outer screen to work is if i turn it off and then on multiple times) I am actually on the internet looking for what i can do to fix this phone, and found this forum. So i am telling everyone that it is a good phone to begin with, but in the future, it has MANY PROBLEMS!!!
My Ericsson is more than bullett proof it's bomb proof. I droped it while roch climing. HEllO! this phone should have no complaints. Its not just strong it also has alot of cool features and it takes good pictures. Whose saying its ring isn't loud; turn it up! It goes very loud. Compare this to a Razor.... What would happen to it if I dropped it! KABOOMI
Whats with the complaints. My phone is awesome! Like the other person said; this phone is BULLET PROOF.
My Sony Ericsson Z525 has been in the washing machine, the ocean, and droped a couple million times. My friends call my phone the bullet proof phone.I have had it for 3 years. Also it can last all week without the charger if it isn't used alot. It's the perfect phone for me.
This is the worst phone I have ever had. I have been through 3 of them in less than a year and now cingular won't send me another phone because the warrenty was up 3 days ago, unless I buy one. The phone quites charging after a couple of months and I have to hope that I can wiggle the charger around just right to get it to charge and hope no one touches it. and then the battery won't hold a charge at all. After having 3 phones with this exact same problem I will never get another one from sony.
Here is one way to disable the PTT button on the Ericsson Z525a phone so you don't accidentally hit it. Simply remove the rubber button from the phone by picking it out with your fingernail. Then cut off the little dimple on the underside with a pair of fingernail clippers. Put the button back on and... voila... you can hit the button all day long and it won't trigger the feature at all. Plus... by doing it this way and not simply just removing the button, you keep the phone cleaner and looking more like it should.
wasnt sure,i only had the z520i.the z525i is supposed to be a better version but opsss...sorry,it wasnt.
heard of white screen cases.bluetooth is okay,very responsive.i faced problems using the media-player.at times,it constantly failed to fully play mp3 files.
it comes with a speakerphone but it wasnt that useful cause it wasnt loud enough(can only be used in silent places).
at times,older versions are better.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. I know that my problems are NOT a fluke--I've had THREE of the same model and ALL have been TERRIBLE and not because of abuse or misuse.
My phone started malfunctioning within 2 weeks of getting it (I didn't drop it or anything)--the graphics and screens were very weird and it wouldn't ring out loud when it was NOT on silent. Then I finally exchanged it (w/ my warranty) 9 months later and that one's screen broke within 2 days. So I exchanged it AGAIN and that one also has been TERRIBLE. It consistently can't find the network, rings out loud when it's on silent (among a trillion other things) and now finally officially died yesterday (hasn't been able to find the network for 2 days).
I JUST DON"T KNOW HOW OT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would only if I knew how i had it before and i loved it more than anything!!!
I don't get all the complaints about the Sony z520 phones. I've had mine for 2 years & it works great! It has a camera but it's not really a camera so don't expect that. No phone is meant to be dropped on concrete as many of you stated you've done. Snapping shut a case with an LCD display will almost always cause a problem as that's a liquid crystal which technically allows it to slosh around when dropped or snapped. Treat it like what it is a phone and don't abuse it. You really might be surprised! I watched my own son throw his onto the ground after a conversation with his wife. Hello they don't bounce!
