Cover or holster

I got a leather cover for my z520a so that I could carry this outside of my pocket (you know, the whole pictures of the inside of your pocket showing up on your phone) and the leather case I got from Cingular really sucks. Anyone have recommendations on a better cover or other type of holster? Just judging by this cover alone (I haven't used any others), it's almost as though the design of the phone does not facilitate a leather cover at all. It feels like this one may fall apart soon, either with the strap going over the antenna (which seems completely out of place in the first place) or the plastic swivel coming out of the soft leather pocket on the back.

camera quality settings??

I just got this phone, on phone scoop it says the quality only goes up to 640, but on the phone it has a 1280 quality setting?

Another thing, does the phone has the theme shown on the phone scoop pictures ( the one with the willow tree or something) because i cant find it.

Games in this phone

First of all, I just want to say how disgusted I am that the phone did not come with at least one full version. So in addition, is there a way to install games in this phone? or the only way is to purchase through cingular?

Unable to send pics or files via IR?

I know some of the other Sony Ericsson phones have the ability to send pics via infrared to say... a cannon printer (friends SE phone actually has a "send via bluetooth or IR" option when sending pics). now im wondering is this cingular's doing by blocking features with their software, or was the z520 never intended to have that capability to begin with?

Z520 Performance

I am looking at the V557 and the Sony Eric Z520 at Cingular. Also the Samsung A940 at Sprint.

Would appreciate any reports on your satisfaction with the Z520.

Interested in reception strength and battery life.

Called SE after email

Well, I got the same email message asking to call. I called (they work from 8am-11pm) and talk to a guy there George. Nice guy. I explained to him all the problems and he said that he documented everything gave me a ticket number and said that if I wanted to call back to give the ticket number. They would take step by step, first of how to master reset to see if that is the problem. Then, open a request for service in which I would have to take the phone to a SE repair center. He said that we have a 1 year warranty and that they will check the phone as long as we are under warranty. Also, to transfer all data (make a back up) because the master reset deletes everything you put in there. I am buying a BT dongle today.

Like it was said bef...

Protected Files

Is there any way to delete those default picture and mp3 files? Everytime I try it says it's protected. At the very least it would be nice to be able to create a directory and just move them.

External display question

How readable is the external color display without the backlight on? Specifically, the battery and signal strength meters.

I like to glance at the phone for status information, and I'd rather not have to turn the backlight on every time. I have no experience with an external color display so I don't really know what to expect.

Phone Quality...

😡 I love the form and function of this phone, but have had issues with its quality. I bought a phone for me and my wife recently from Cingular. I have now had to return THREE phones for new ones. Each one had a different problem.

The first one would not charge. It just kept on saying "DING, optimized charging!", "DING, optimized charging!", "DING, optimized charging!", ...

The second one had an overly sensitive camera button. I am not talking about the normal accidental pictures here. This phone would take pictures in my pocket as I was walking with baggy pants.

I am now about the replace the third one because it makes an awful sound when you open and close it. I thought I could live with the sound, but it is really starting...

Hah, I know this is really a dumb question, but does Cingular offer this phone in white? I've seen the Sony Ericsson website, and I'd prefer it in that color... 😁

Changeable covers

I've read three reviews on the SE z520a phone and they all stated that the phone included two changeable covers. I went to Cingular Wireless and they informed me that the phone doesn't come with any. Amazon does not list them on the "In the Box" description either. Does anyone know if the covers are included with this phone?

Z520a vs Z520i

I'm about to get a new phone, and I was looking that this one on ebay. When i was looking i saw that here was an A verson and an I verson. Is there any difference between the two? The "a" looked like it had a silver body, and the "i" looked more white. Does anyone know if they are different with regards to features or specs and if so which one you recommend? I'm also looking at the v635, any ideas?
