Question about Sony Ericsson W550i Cellular Phone

Sony w760 connector seems loose, audio doesn't play properly

I might have messed up the connector on the phone by buying a cheap converter that plugs into the connector and provides a normal 3.5mm audio jack. The plastic on the converter was stiffer than the stuff on sony brand products like the usb cable or the charger cable. The converter didn't want to go in unless I put a good deal of pressure on it. Now, both the sony connectors and the cheap converters don't connect firmly to the phone, so when I try to play audio, it either doesn't play at all or I only get one side but not the other. I can't tell if the loose connection is at the point of the contacts or if it is between the connector and some internal phone parts. The connector on the phone seems to move a little bit when I plug stuff in.

Sounds like you have loosened up the plug on the phone with your audio converter. If it's still under warranty, use it! Don't mention you have used a cheap connector, afterall you're not 100% sure that was the real cause. If that's not an option, then you can make all your plug legs slightly wider so they'll hook into the phone better. Try use a hairdryer to slightly soften up the tips of the plugs that go into the phone, make sure you don't heat it up too much or it'll deform. Then gently press the tips straight down on a table and very slightly widen the tips. When the tips are wider, they should hook onto the phone better. Good luck!

Check with another charger to see if it will charge, if it is still same problem, the problem is from the charging port on your phone.

The waranty chane my broken k810i to w760 was it fare?

W760 is a latest model as compared to K810i and has been rated better in terms of performance, design and features as compared to K810i. Both have exact similar features so i feel it to be good bargain provided the replacement phone is satisfactory in terms of its condition, performance and looks.
Otherwise its a fare deal. You can have a look at the comparison in the below link.

Sony ericsson w760

It means HSPDA (High Speed Data Packet Access) which is faster than 3G. So "3G" has been replaced by an "H". For the consumers, it means 3G or faster, that's all!
