I want to buy this fone but I need your feedbacks regarding the quality of the camera and video. Is the camera and video clear?
Hi guys, I'm going to buy Z550 tomorrow morning. I got to know that the price difference between Z550 and K750 is just 160... So should I really pay a little more to get a better K750? Does that make a big difference? I really like the look of Z550 (my main point of buying it), and is quite bored with bar design. I use my mobile phone mainly for (in order of frequence)
I'd appreciate it if Z550 users can share with me frankly the cons of Z550. I'd especially like to hear your comments, Shaliron. Thanks :)
sorry for late reply.. yes u can do what u said

Well, the backlight doesn't actually turn off, but it does fade is what I meant. On all Sony Ericsson phones, the backlight doesn't turn off during a call so I doubt that the firmware can fix it.
The Sony Ericsson website is wrong. It can only show time.
And the speaker is just quiet. There is not bitrate in which the sound will get louder, we'll just have to live with it.
Well the interface is better, but Megabass is just an extra, and I personally don't like it but some do. Overall, the media player is better because it is more like a real MP3 player; it shouldn't be judged purely on if it has Megabass.
It has video recording. There is no limit to how long the video clips can be, only the memory.
please advise urgently.
Does this phone have voice recording?
If no is there any phone around Rs 8000 that has camera and voice recording?
Shaliron,the media interface is better than the one that k750i owns,but don't forget the sounds quality.k750 has MEGA BASS, which makes sounds roar perfectly. you miss this point,mate. Don't u think z550i is suite to girl? even the sterling black still reflect feminity. You will found flower shape decorated the box.
Shaliron, as mentioned earlier 1) during a call the LCD (internal screen) light glows continously till the call is disconnected. If I update my firmware will the LCD light go off after say 20-30 seconds?
2) On the sony website, they have mentioned that the extnernal mono screen displays DATE & TIME..is this information incorrect?
3) I tried various ringtones..but the volume is low. Could you tell me what bitrate songs should I try?
Thanks in advance.
1.The number issue I mention earlier is
if you incoming call is 12 or more digits(India/Airtel they deliver called id as
+919845688962),so in th eexternal display the number for which you don't have the phone/SIM card entry ,starts rolling
2.Similiar unwater results can be seein in the caller list menu also where you can see
numbers dancing to show the number in 12 + 1 configuration.
3."newer menu over the K750" - What is the difference
4.MEmory card being inside the phone itself reduces the possbility of sharing
and ease of use.(keeping aside the price part)
4.I don't remember the options.But when I got to the menu->internetsetting,
I see a different menu getting listed with select & more button display in the screen missing,but still works-So a display/menu posting bug?
You don't need to lock the keypad on this phone because it is a flip phone.
Yeah, but this phone has no joystick, meaning better reliability, has a better media player and newer menu over the K750.
And what do expect the phone to do when a person calls? Of course it is going to display the number.
Maybe you've got the fullscreen mode for the web browser on, that means that the select and more buttons are not visible.
And you can open this phone with one hand, it is just a bit more tricky.
You'll need the Disc2phone and PC suite from: http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=gb&lc=en&ver=4000&template=ps1_1_3_1&zone=ps&lm=ps1_1&pid=10459
Hi soorena, could you tell me where I can get the software to transfer SMS to PC, preferably the URL?? Is it possible to transfer MP3 songs/camera snaps from / to the phone to PC??
Top 6 reason NOT to buy this phone
1.Price of this phone + memory card money = K750 price (you get better camera ,,data cable,IR ...)
2.Rington volume is too low to have lot of missed calls.
3.When call comes number starts rolling on th external display(if you don't have phone entry for the number)
4.Unlike other SE clamshells,you can't open with single hand
5.select & More button is not visible when you got to the Internet settings?
6.Battery life is very average
I guess you are a typical Nokia user ;-) like me..i too was disappointed when I tried to switch between channels using the handsfree button. But then slowly you need to get adjusted to SE.
Can anyone tell me whether I can transfer all my text messages (SMS) to computer??
thx Mr. Raghavendra
but i cant switch between channel on hearphone button.
With the flip closed, you first you need to activate the external screen by pressing the volumbe button once. Then just press & hold the volume button, the channel will change automatically.
I would suggest all to refer to the previous messages, you would get answers to your queries there...Man, i had recently asked this question which was answered by Shaliron (refer to the posts below)
While listening to Radio, with the flip closed, how do i switch between channels on headphone?
my headphone is not switch between channels!!
Kishore, I dont think the horizontal line indicates GPRS signal strength because firstly I have not opted for GPRS and secondly even if i dont get GSM signal the line never disappears..it is sort of fixed. Also in the Settings->connectivity->Preferred network I get a list of GSM network like Hutch (MNC=5),Hutch (MNC=13) etc..which one do i select?? Can any one tell me whether the ringtone volume would increase if I update the firmware? Currently I have kept it at 8, but still while traveling the ringtone is not audible.
I also had the same problem. I bought it when it was launched, with great Expectation from Ghatkopar-Mumbai dealer, Within first 15 to 20 minutes of use it got hanged and after reinstalling battery it never switched on again. On complaining, my dealer replaced it with new piece but of no use as second new piece also had the same problem. So he told me that there might be a faulty batch of production and asked me to wait for few days. Thereafter he gave me Third new piece from new lot of batch. Now it is working fine. Some time it happens with branded companies also but it all depends on Dealer's approach to the customer and your luck.
