Buy a SE K550, its cheaper and can be flashed to a W610, that's what I did for my sister. The phone was £49.99 from Orange, then I flashed it to a W610 and unlocked it. Needs to be Cid 52 or below though as Cid53 can't be done, but most should be cid 52 still in shops.


Cool m8,
First of all, I would take the chance to say thanks!! You did a great help for us to unlock w810i for free :oops: I do, absolutely, appreciate fore that!

Secondly, I saw orange they have refurb phones for sale, w610i and k550i are also there. However, I just can't get rid of walkman design, especially w610i.

Anyway, thanks a lot :thumbsup:

Well the W610 is a walkman phone, and when the K550 is flashed to a W610 it is identical to a W610, just with a difference Facia.


So what you mean is that I can replace a w610i fascia rather than buying "w610i" phone?? :oops:

Nice comment!

I am convinced now. I might ebay a cheaper one k550 as you did prove the point!!

I think I am just keen to the walkman interface... Can you teach me how to flash w610i version if I got one?

Regards :-D

Cheers.
So once if I flash the w610i file, does that mean the original k-series camera driver will be amended as well?

Camera quality doesn't change. Only thing you loose is the camera auto starting when you open the lense cover.

See this:
http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/crossflashing/flash-k550-to-w610/

Picture quality does not decrease !! So don’t Worry !

Cons: Camera does not start automatically when u open the shutter
u hv to press the cam button after opening shutter.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Don't use their firmware files they're old versions, when your ready to do it tell me and I'll upload the latest files for you.


Thanks again and again! BTW, is it worth 35 quid for a used one ( I saw in ebay :oops:)?
Sorry if its a stupid question because I have no idea about k550...

Well my sister paid £50 from orange.
If you're replacing the case I guess it doesn't really matter as it's used as you'll be removing the cosmetic damage, also a used one is more likely to be cid 52 or below. But on the other hand there is the chance they've updated it with the sony ericsson update service and it could be cid 53 which can't be converted.

Personally I like having new stuff.

But if you don't mind you could get a used one.


Hah, another point and good comment really! Thanks, dcx_badass!!
Happy bank holiday :lol:

I think the W610 looks much better originally... I don't think the blue lights match...

Plus, if you get a fascia from ebay, even if the seller says its OEM, it is not the same quality as the original, I would just buy the original, a lot less hassle and you get the real thing...
