Question about Sony Ericsson W850i Cellular Phone

5 Answers

Keeps turning itself off

I bought my daughter a Sony Ericsson W850i for xmas 2007, a few days after having it, she found that it would turn itself off, this would also happen during calls ( the battery was fully charged each time) We returned it to the local store, who then sent it to sony ericsson to be repaired, apparently they updated software. The phone was returned 3 days ago and during thoes 3 days, it again turns itself off for no apparent reason. Needless to say, tomorrow, once again it will be sent back for this fault to be corrected!
What I am wondering is why was not this fault corrected in the first place? I have googled this problem to find that, this is a common problem with Sony Ericsson.

Adding...same problem I'm on replacement #3.
Turns itself off at random...and you can't turn it back on...
It shakes...then will reboot itself.
I've had this one a week...and it's already doing the same things....white screen of death....logo freeze...then randomly turn itself off.
My LG never had such issues ;/ ;/

I have the same thing and nothing seems to be working to fix it...:|( too bad... I really like the phone

My W850i does exactly the same thing - so i think its more a fault within the original design of the phone rather than just your phone individually, as i know a few other people who have the same phone and theirs also turns itself off.

Yes it is ...what they should do if they reflash the firmware and it still does the samething what you will have to do is get them to exchange the phone for you.
