Killer looks; the black and metal finish are simply awesome. Impressive performance being a z-series phone.
The cover becomes warm because of the metal used to make the back cover. When you hold it for a while, the heat from your hand gets transferred to the metal more easily than plastic.
Get the Z550. It has a better screen, camera, thinner and smaller, more internal memory, better music player, better radio with RDS, lighter, and better interface. In fact the Z550 is better at everything compared to the 6125, even looks.
1- only backlight is on when the phone is open without any text on outer display
2. mine became warm for first charging, but it's ok now.
i bought the phone on 12.10.06. Few ?s
1. Is the outer display meant to be off when the cover is open?
2. The back of the phone is a bit warm after some time. Is this normal?

They've got photo samples.

You should be able to listen to songs shen the flip is closed. I can. Maybe you should go to a service centre to fix the problem.
To change tracks or stations when the flip is closed is easy. Just press the volume keys to get rid of keylock, and then hold it up (forward) or down (previous) to skip tracks.
Get the Z550. It has a better battery capacity, FM radio, a better mp3 player with unlimited storage (depends on memory card size), MUCH better interface, better camera and it's cheaper. The interface is the main thing though. Motorolas are much uglier and harder to use compared to Sony Ericssons, not to mention slow. Trust me on that one. And the Sony Ericsson has real themes that change the entire look of the phone, not just colours. They even animate smoothly and quickly. There's even a feminen one on the phone which looks pretty good though, I'm a guy...
The V3i may be thinner, but it is far too wide and tall compared to the Z550.
Z550 all the way!
I just bought this phone and find it great value for money. However, i have a few problems that I hope somebody can help me with.I cannot change the radio channels using the handsfree. I have to open the phone. Similarly, the shell has to be kept open to listen to an MP3 song. If i close it, the song just goes off.I wonder if i can change the radio channel or continue to listen to MP3 without opening the phone? The battery also seems to be a bit poor. Almost 85% had been exhausted in a day, with minimal use of the phone.
@soorena & all
About the loose back cover, it's really to fix. I just got a piece of cardboard (a tissue box is fine), and cut it to about the size of 3 x 2cm and put it on the left side of the battery, and then close up the cover, and a tight fit! Works very well.
Here's an image of how to do it:
ok. thanks shaliron. i'll try to find & i'll tell you soon once i got it. just for the information, never push the outside screen. medium presure will leave black shape in main display. It happen to mine
Iam facing call drop, do anyone have u faced and the speaker volume is very low, i cann't hear, if iam standing in the traffic.
to noname: one thing i dont like about the phone is its back cover.there is a empty space between back cover and battery. if put a little pressure on it, it makes sound. gharch! ghoorch! it's annoying..
