    OK this has been asked so many times. This is the last time I'm saying it.

    > * < < * < *

    Where < or > are directions on the joystick, and * is the bottom left hand button on the keypad.

    I guess I'll make this thread sticky so that there's no excuse anymore. Please use the search feature before posting next time.

    Hi.

    I'm thinking on buying a SE Z1010 to my mum, and i asked the guy if he could tell me the software version.

    he told me this:

    ****r Drop says:
    software version itp cxc 125 631 r1k
    *****Drop says:
    -----******Drop says:
    actual 200401122

    it's the newest firmware, right?

    Hi there,

    Back on the desktop screen where you have no applications open (meaning no nothing running, just your wallpaper),

    Enter >*<<*<*

    where,
    >,< is arrow right and arrow left respectively.
    * is the (*A/a) Button.

    Do not mind what appears on the screen while pressing these keys. Just enter them following the correct sequence...&#220;

    I guess the "latest" SW is R1A136. Here in Sweden, anyway.

    No Way

    On my other sony ericsson phones that worked but NOT on the K750i!!!

    As soon as you go for the first joystick movement - it brings up a shortcut option.

    Nothing happens after that so do NOT think we are imbeciles!!!

    I unbranded my voda firmware without help so i KNOW what i am doing!!

    I also did an update off the SE website just now so whoever says you cannot after unbranding is wrong!

    firearcade, Hey, what&#180;s with the hostilities here??
    What&#180;s wrong with "It does too work, you just have to press the entire sequence, disregarding what the screen displays in the meantime"
    This is not a hooligan meeting after a footie match you know..

    Quick questions (about K750i):

    1. How often does SE release a new firmware version ?
    2. When is the next version coming out ? Will it make video recording better ?
    3. If i buy the phone but it has a firmware with crap video recorder can i "downgrade" it to a version with good video recorder ?
    4. What is the latest firmware version and when did it come out ?

    Thanks.

    This code used to work on my k750i latest firmware, UNTIL I altered the joystick shortcuts from the default. Now it doesn't, so if you've altered yours, try resetting them and see if that helps.

    Azzza, dirobesh, H4L, close your eyes and press slowly:
    joystick right
    *
    joystick left
    left again
    *
    joystick left
    *

    Open your eyes... You're in Service menu. If not, it's not an SE phone

    I've discovered another way, for those who can't get the code to... er...work .

    1/ Take a pic with your phone.
    2/ Open it in your Image Editor...Photoshop....Paint Shop Pro..whatever..
    3/ Look at the EXIF info....

    The software version is shown......see attached pic



    Hope this helps..

    k750i-05, the latest firmware is R1N035 so no you haven't got the latest firmware. To update it go the sony ericsson website. Updating it gets better camera and video quality, louder volume and it fixes some bugs

    When updating the firmware, you shouldn't lose anything stored on your phone Habibi

    i though installing the new software will delete evrything on my phone, but why when i called the sonyericsson call center and ask him about this they told me they can only back up my phone contacts only, and of course what i have on my memory card.

    Habibi, Well really, when new firmwares become available, they fix bugs that occur during the previous firmware. After updating from R1L002 to R1AA008, I think the camera software is updated, the video quality gets better, the mp3's get louder...BUT, people say they can hear a faint noise when making phone calls.

    As for adding another language, I don't really know, perhaps update it from a different global sony ericsson site.

    Apparently new firmware came out in December 2005 that fixed the USB cable copy bug, but it?s not available for all regions yet. I still only get R1N035 when I use the SE update service. R1N035 improves photo quality and reception a bit, but it contains a nasty USB connection bug that?s not there (or not as bad) in previous versions, so it?s a trade off. I hear the new version has some new bugs as well.

    By the way, > * < < * < * !does! work on the K750. You just have to ignore the ?create a shortcut? message and not expect anything to appear on screen until you?ve gone through the whole procedure.

    I love the K750, but I wish they could put out firmware that has been thoroughly tested! It seems every time they fix one bug they create a new one.

    se k750i annoying quirk?

    Hi just not sure what the heck this is? I have not heard of this 1 b4?

    But has anybody booted up their fone, then straight away clicked right soft key to access main menu, gone into media player then b4 doing anything else clicked the shortcut button above the joystick between the left and right soft menu keys?
    Well when i do this the fone reboots showing white screen yeah> But this is the thing i don't get?>>>

    So i turn the fone off reboot and If i press the shortcut key first b4 going into the media player the same way as above via through the menu then why is it that only then the shortcut button works like it should and not cause fone to crash and reboot?

    So apart from after a day of owning it the connection smelled a bit electrically burnt but noth major as some new parts have that smell.. well obviously fault wid fone so had another on that matter.

    But as reguards to this quirky annoying reboot prob the chap i saw in orange shop came to the conclusion that if 4 of the batch of 150 k750i's had this reboot prob then all must be doing it.

    So he gave me replacement as there was an electrical fault with other fone anyway then told me it prob a software problem as well like an update needed and to go to sonyericson website to download latest firmware.
    Did that and according to the update my fone is up to date.obtw my version is.....R1N035 and on the box it's stamped 17th november 2005........
    sorry to be so long winded but has anyone1 else had this problem as now i dunno what to do pointless getting another replacement so any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as it's an upgrade and only have 26 days left to return and exchange for another fone which none i like plz HELP!!!!!!!!

    Hmm... so overall... what is the pros and the cons of updated the firmware to the latest now? Btw, mine is a K750i (cxc125953 R1L002)

    P.S: After reading a few different post regarding the cons of updating the software, i hav problem deciding whether or not to upgrade my software.

    I heard that as long as i switch my phone to slient mode, my camera would no longer hav sound but if i upgrade my software, would being in slient mode still help?

    Oh i've managed to update my phone to R1AA008.
    Hmm... i feel the different of the way we can search our phonebook. Where we can type the letters of the names instead of only the 1st letter.

    Apart from that... the camera version changed from 4.4 to 4.5 thought i dont feel any differences. And of course the sound as well... but again, i don't feel any difference.

    If there's anyone out there who can feel it, can you please tell me? Thanks
