When i search on web for this "WSOD" (White Screen of Death) problem. it pointed out to me that it's quite a known problem and number of people have had this. web search says its a problem of firmware (What is firmware ?) in Sony Ericsson W550i. Well firmware flash can resolve this problem. I try to update my w550i from Sony ericsson's website to upgrade the firmware. I tried two three but it stopped at 90% updation.
Then i took my W550i to Sony ericsson service center which is near to my home. After checking the warranty card they told me that your 1 year warranty is over. So i ask them "how mutch it cost to resolve the problem ? The person said Rs. 300 ( around $ 7). I said ok it fine, so when should i come to take my phone, he told me to come at evening.
