    Well Guys

    So much for the theory that the K750 is basically the K700 with a beefed up
    camera - its RF performance is somewhat poorer, sad to say. Another point
    brought home by this phone is that despite the wisdom of so-called experts,
    new Li ion batteries do take a few charge cycles before reaching advertised
    capacity - even taking into account that new phones get a hammering due to
    being treated like toys!

    Whether or not RF sensitivity &/or output power can be tweaked with a future
    firmware revision remains to be seen. It just goes to show that core
    performance features such as being able to make/receive calls in marginal
    conditions is not only a low priority to users but reviewers & manufacturers
    as well. Two steps forward then one step back with SE phones in my opinion!

    At least the UI & camera are both stunning.

    My wife's K750i has shown no differences in RF performance to her K700.

    I've been a little sloppy - RF on Voda 900 with f/w version R1A044 in the UK
    is poorer than my K700i with later f/w versions. As for upgrading, I, like
    many others, have had little success installing the USB flash drivers. This
    initial f/w version is extremely flaky. I'm hoping various niggles get
    sorted fairly soon.

    Sorry for a very basic question but how do you normally go about getting a
    firmware upgrade. I never upgraded any of my phones so far.

    For the K750i go to http://www.sonyericsson.com/support and look for
    software update services. Follow the instructions carefully and read
    all the conditions etc. I did mine in about 30 minutes, most of the
    time was spent installing the required software, the actual firmware
    update only took 10 minutes or so.

    The one thing I noted was there didn't appear to be a release notes
    indicating the firmware version or revision history.

    Good luck

    How can I find out what firmware version my K750i has?

    What is the latest version number?

    Both of the questions I don't know the answer to, but I'd like to
    know.

    on your phone do the following

    > * < < * < *


    where ">" means move the joystick right, "<" means move joystick left,
    "*" means press *

    select "Service info" then "Software info"

    the firmware version is the top line

    currently R1J002

    (this post is edited with the new firmware info as it comes out)

    Glad its has worked for someone. Could you give some guidance on exactly
    what you did to get the new hardware wizard to load the update drivers - the
    instructions say to hold down the "c" key when connecting the switched off
    K750i which will load the wizard. How long did hold the key down for?

    What network Jon? I have a horrible sinking feeling. I'm not the 1st to
    comment on this. I hope I have a lemon but the reception on mine is no
    better than my old T610 which was utter ****e.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to make any definitive comparisons with my K700 at
    the moment as CPW in the Broad St Mall in Reading screwed up the firmware
    upgrade (camera version was wrong on the 1st attempt then a week later they
    couldn't sort it, so back to SE it goes). At the very least I shall request
    the warranty period is extended by the time it's away for but I won't hold
    my breath.

    make sure the phone is off and the usb cable is not plugged in.
    hold the "C" key down then plug in the usb cable.
    As soon as you have plugged the cable in, let go of "C"

    Firmware Upgrade Problems - Sorted

    Hi All,

    I had some trouble installing firmware.

    Everytime i held the 'c' button and then inserted cable, I got a new
    hardware wizard pop up asking me to istall the driver for a usb flash
    device.

    I pointed the wizard to the cd that came with my 750i and i couldnt find a
    driver.

    Anyway if you go to the sonyericsson support site you can now download the
    usb flash drivers (only about 100k in size)

    After installing the drivers you need to disconnect the phone again hold the
    'c' button and connect the phone again.

    With any luck you firmware update should start.........Mine took about 6
    minutes !

    Hope this helps !
