I am currently using a Nokia 6125 as a primary phone and VERY PLEASED with it. Now I am planning to get this z550 as a spare. To me, Sony Ericsson (SE) phones are NOT very user-friendly if you compare them to Nokia. I had a SE z530i, HATED its keypad (difficult to SMS quickly with one hand), sold it right after using it for a few days. I wouldn't want this to happen again, and willing to give SE another go. Could anyone tell me if you were happy OR not happy with its keypad?
For those of you who own a z550, please tell me the problems you have had.
Thanks in advance.
I am thinking of getting this z550i. Have heard all the great things about it, now I'd like to hear some issues/problems that you have encountered. Would appreciate all genuine response.
Just bought this phone yesterday. Battery is holding up good so far, and i'm generally pleased with it. The interior and exterior really suck up your fingerprints though, and the projection is not very loud, but okay. This phone does NOT come with a data cable, which sucks! if you want to put data on your phone, you will have to buy a usb cable, or a bluetooth device for your pc. first impression, i think 7,5/10 is a fair reflection.
i`m really interested in this phone and would like to know if it comes with a data cable as standard shipment or i`ll need toa get a new one????
hi every1!got mine 2 weeks back. gr8 phone. radio is good, camera good under natural lighting conditions and the processor is really fast(no hang ups as yet). mp3 player is good(not as good as an ipod, but thats because of the bad earphones). and battery life is great to say the least. plays mp3s continuosly for 12 hours. to darkray, i am not able to play wma or aac files as the phone does not recognise them. could u just suggestsomething because the manual says its compatible with aac format. thnx in advance. all the future owners, just go ahead and buy it. its a price-performance champion.
Iam willing to buy this phone , can anyone tell me abt the optimum perforamce of the phone with the 256MB,512MB,1GB. I WILL BE thankfull to you,
I have got this phone quite long ago. May i ask if anyone could tell me how to maximise the use of camera for this phone? I want to know more about the lighting condition it works best on and the distance it can take to maintain its sharpness. Thanks in advance.
Hi im from India.
The Z550i comes with Data cable,Charger,CD, headset as standard.
The phone has 25MB internal memory,but does NOT come with memory card,although it can support memory stick duo Micro (M2) cards upto 1GB.
After a few months of search on the net about the best possible cell phone at best price with a lot of style , functions and durability . I BOUGHT THIS PHONE 1 DAY BACK, AND I AM VERY MUCH SATISFIED.
do i need to say anything more????
compare it to nokia 6270, screen and speaker of nokia is slightly better, rest is same EXCEPT THAT PRICE OF NOKIA IS DOUBLE THAN PRICE OF THIS PHONE, NEED TO SAY MORE????
if you had read all reactions you would know that the phone only comes with charger and stereo-headset. A2DP means the phone can stream music to a stereo bluetooth headset
tnx :) I'll keep that in mind
thanks eject_ currently using k700i which now giving me problems of rotater .. not effective anymore and i think rotater sooner or later will be not effective.. z550 is the phone i looking for. simple and nice.
I got this phone about two weeks back! and i think it is awesome for the price! in india,i you get cell, charger and the headphones. the M2 memory card is about Rs 2500 here (1gb)! so thats the only problem!
wont be a problem in Mumbai the radio works fine! :-)
for Rs.8250/- it is a great buy!!
i work for vodafone in australia and we sell this phone, so yes this phone does work in australia. p.s. good phone, go buy it.

hi to all the owners of this beautiful phone , and also to the future owners
can u guys please tell me about the battery backup of s.e z550i , my fren says its not really good . but i think thes phone is woeth buyig . so please throw some light on this
Rhythmicdia is right
Scroll down and you'll see that Australia uses dual band network (900/1800)
Since the Z550i is triple band it will work just fine for you :)
why should not it work. Well, correct me if I'm wrong. If your provider network supports GSM frequencies this phone supports, then you should be able to use it. Better call up your provider and confirm the frequencies. This phone supports 3 bands. This is just my guess, so guys pls correct me if i'm wrong.
