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.

The last 3 days, my battery lasts only a few hours. It used to last at least 15 hours


Battery and Usage under Settings will tell you exactly what is draining your battery. You should power your phone off for a few minutes every 2 or 3 days.

Also try letting the battery die completely, and charging up to full UNINTERUPTED. This will help the phone reset it's battery meter, which may be the problem.

Your next step would be to backup the phone, apps, and SD Card files, and perform a factory restore. Then reinstall your apps and replace your data.

If that fails, you may simply need to purchase a new battery.

WHEN i CHARGE THE BATTERY, IT NEVER SHOWS IT IS 'FULL' HOWEVER LONG i CHARGE IT


Hello,

Charging should take maximum of 6hrs. But some phones charges full in 2hr, 3hr, etc...

If your refuses to charge full, after 6hrs, then there is a problem with either your charger or your battery. One of these is the cause of the problem.

So you can have the battery and charge tested on another phone. Maybe that of a friend or family.

I hope the above makes sense to you.

Good luck.

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.

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.

Phone won't charge


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!

All you have to do is turn off data services. This error occurs when you have data services blocked on your phone, so your phone errors when trying to setup wireless backup.
