K550i-No battery backup and slow transfer rate of data
Battery won't last for more than a day if its charged for more than 6hrs.
i gave it for service at Authorized Sony Ericsson service centre(Jayanagar 4th blk,Bangalore), but they never repaired it & said some software prevails, which is not in connection with my handset problem. they also charged me Rs.150 as inspection charges, just for opening the handset. I have 1 year warranty period, as i bought my phone in the month of April-08. Can this problem be solved? Will sony ericsson copany replace mine with a new hand-set? or else i ll go for other company mobiles, which ll provide good service.

Go to sony ericsson website and search for battery genuineness checking page. Provide your battery serial no. and check whether its original battery or not. If its fake, then approach the dealer from whom you bought this mobile.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Hello and Welcome to FixYa! A famous firmware bug, you need to update the phone's firmware, to do so, I've provided a Sony Ericsson's link below, please follow the link to download the utility and read the guide. You must have your USB Data Cable and an active internet connection to do an update. Once downloaded, install the application, and the wizard will guide you on how and when to connect the phone. Note: You should backup all the data before update by the SE PC Suite, as after the update the phone will be in "Out of the Box" condition.

Concerned, Nooh P.S: K550i Software Update
*#3370# - Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR) activation. Increase signal strength, better signal reception. It also help if u want to use GPRS and the service is not responding or too slow. Phone battery will drain faster though. (type this on the main screen)
hope yougot the solution.
To download pictures there are many ways:
1. Internet (data charges may apply).(located on the Menu of your phone)
2. Computer Pictures (via usb cable)(need to install PC Suite software first)
3. Another phone who has a bluetooth or infrared feature ( these are some cool tools of our phone where we can transfer pics, music, data.. wirelessly)
To charge the phone via cable:
You need to have a computer and install the PC Suite software in CD that is in the box of the phone. After installation you can then enjoy transferring photos, music, data etc. Have Fun!
Remember it's always important to take care of your device.. especially a mid-level device like the K550i. Sony Ericcson prides themselves in edgy techno-savvy devices but leave little room for accommodating ruggedness--they are delicate. You may be able to go to your wireless carrier and exchange or utilize a battery until your device arrives. If you have an older device you can put your SIM card in there and use that also until the old phone comes. There are self-charge batteries but they dont last days and you will have continually buy another one when the previous one dies. They only last 2-4 hours and can be purchased in the Wal-Mart electronics section. You have to make sure they make one for your model device. I hope this information helps you and good luck!! Rule of thumb: Always buy an extra battery! Have a great holiday!
