    mine is R1KG001

    is that the latest?

    thanks shanecr

    oh my phone is the K810i

    im not 100% sure, but i think so. you can try an ota update from the phone itself and it will tell you, or check here ]http//ww…ng/
    Although there seems to be a newer version here, i have heard that wotan get pre-release firmwares so cant guarantee the stability.

    yeh i tried the over the air update but it said i was low on fuel....

    ill try later, im just letting the phone completely dishcarge then im going to do a full boost.

    i dont seem to be getting a lot of power out of my phone at the moment, maybe its coz i keep playing about with it lol

    lol, i had that problem with my w610i, but after a few times of letting it run out and fully recharging it, the battery life improved quite a bit! also, i keep bluetooth off because that can suck the battery too.

    yeh thats one thing ive never got on, i always keep BT off.

    what phone have you got mate?

    i used to have nokias all the time and my last one was the N73, this K810i rocks my boat loads lol


    im well pleased with how it performs.

    i have the w610i. i was nokia until i got the k750i and loved it, then it was W810i - w850i and now this. they are far superior to anything else. the themes alone make it better than any other brand of phone.

    yeh the themes on the N73 were not that bad, the theme on my SE just now "light flow" is pretty cool.

    Mrs saxo has one ordered aswell as she loved it when it came thru the door....

    That was a falling out day ill tell you lol, i was all exited to get home and open up my new fresh mobile phone box and guess what.....

    she had bloomin opened it and looked at the phone, took it out the packaging etc..WOMEN !!

    i love opening things that i get especially when its a cool new mobile (maybe its just me thats weird) lol

    anyway yeh, she loves it so she is getting one aswell.

    Make sure you get to open hers when it arrives :-)

    i cant remember where i get the update site for the SE ?

    Im wanting to see if there has been a newer version to install on my phone, anyone have any idea?

    thanks

    The phone can check itself, or use sony's seus program that would have been on the cd supplied with phone. Or you can check Wotan or Davinci to see if either of them have a newer firmware.

    Hmm... I've never updated my K750i since I bought it over a year ago.

    /me wonders if there's newer firmware available.

    I wish I could customise EVERYTHING on the phone. Some of it's just stupid and impratical. I have some problem or other on all phones though.

    Like... having to enter the name first on a contact. If I'm entering a new contact the chances are that I'm being given a number, so that should surely go first and then the name.

    And also, if I close the write text message screen by accident I get the option to save a draft or not, but not to cancel.

    Just niggly things I wish I could fix myself lol.

    Hmm... I can't download the SEUS for the K750i from the sony site.

    ducky ^^^^

    I can't find the update service page/installer though... lol.

    When I google for it the only relevant result on the SE site seems to lead to a blank page.

    the seus installer is on the cd that came with the phone.

    thats it :thumbsup:

    thats it :thumbsup:



    Ah good!, Thought so but wasn't 100% :thumbsup:

    If your phone is a K750i ducky, I'm under the impression you can flash it to the w810i firmware, Not sure how easy it is though.

    Yes, but if I click on "Download Page" there's no where to download it.

    This one looks like its working : sonyericsson.com/dow…exe

    That links straight to the download file.

    Haven't got a Sony Ericsson phone, But the above downloaded fine, Hopefully its what your needing.

    Thank you. That should be fine. Not quite sure why I couldn't get hold of it lol.

    I tried to install and it said "Sorry, Microsoft Windows Vista is not supported".

    Maybe the webpage is designed not to show the downloads to Vista users if that's the case...

    Bloody out of order !!! Im fuming !!!

    I went to update the firmware version and its formatted the phone then started to download the new version ,.....

    then at 4% done all i heard was "Dee Du" which is the sound effect of something being plugged or un-plugged to the phone.

    this meant the bloody wire has a loose fault and it just froze at 4%, i treied everything to get it going again but the phone just would not start up

    Its now sitting on my desk totally F***** ARRGGgghhh !! all because of the USB cable, has anyone ever had this problem? i know it was this as i wiggled afterwards and it was always connecting and un-connecting while it was plugged in and being wiggled.

    So iv now got to get on the phone tomorrow to SE at 08705 237 237

    I bought the phone from "The Order" and they only have a 28 day returns but the phone is still in the 1 year manufacturer warranty period, it was only bought on the 6 july.

    Anyway Rant over, im just going to have to live with Mrs Saxo's pink samsung for the next week !!
