as i know SE phone are not prone to viruses like nokia, but i do experience it having a system error/or a virus maybe, it attacks my games and applications, but i just update my phone and its gone.
but i do want to know what really happen, i have a games that i installed that causes to make an error to my phone (so beware to the things you put in your phone)
then i use usb to plug my phone to PC, to see what happened, i disabled the unhide option for the pc, and then i go to my phone mem drive, then to the system folder, then i see a new folder inside the java that looks new...and has a different name, so that casuases the problem, but for that time i dont know what to do, so a go to the SE repair shope to know what causes it.
what the!...they just update the software(it is different to master reset we have) just update they did, and my phone is back to nowmal
by the way my old phone that has it is my k800i
for me SE phones are not prone to virus, be sure when adding a games or application, or songs, be very sure to scan it thru anti virus in our PC,...
lets just wait for the SE or other people/teams to develop a java based anti virus.
Could somebody at Sony Ericsson be able to supply me a program to remove viruses from a Sony Erricsson W890
mobile phone. Or if you could inform me from where I may get a program to remove a virus.
any one of you could tell me if any anty virus working
on w890i if yes which kind of anty virus .

Thank you so much for the help. I'll try to work my phone the sooner I get home. What are the risk of virus penetrating Sony Ericsson? I'm just terrified virus might've gone into my phone that's why it doesn't work.
I m planning to buy a Sony Ericsson W890.
I have some quaries:
1) This model is available only at Sony Ericsson showroom. I m not able to find this model even in stores like Croma, Reliance Digital,Hot Spot & Mobile Store. Is this model stopped by company?
2)I have used W810i earlier . How is the performance of this phone as compare to W810i.Are there any other issues?
3)If i want to use net on phone ,how is the performance?

i have had my w890 for nearly 9 months now at first i was ver happy with the slim design although the camera is not really great but i didn't mind about that. Then after a few weeks the software started playing up it would randomly freeze when i was writing a message it just couldn't handle the command. the back red light would come on and everything would freeze if it didn't sort itself out i would take out the battery and put it back in and all would be sorted. then a few weeks later it would do the same thing but i would just put it back on again. however the other day it done the same thing again this time it didn't turn back on, the phone broke simply from typing out a text message which i thought was pretty pathetic! Well i contacted my service provider and luckily i was still under warranty and they will fix it free of charge. . a friend of mine works in a mobile phone shop (orange) and he said that most software complaints are logged for sony ericssons especially the w890 and w880 the slim designs. its really put me off sony ericssons now which is a shame because i wanted the c905!!!

Hey guys, a little help?
The first time I installed and used Media Manager, it worked. But the next day I tried to transfer files from my PC (CD Music) to my phone, it wouldn't work.
Like, it kept saying "Connect the USB to the Phone" so on. But it's already connected. Plus, when I connected the USB, I confirmed it on my mobile phone by clickeing "Media Transfer". Help please. What can be wrong?
Is it our PC? Or the phone? Or how I worked things.
I'm not really into all these tech stuff. All I really need is to get my music from CD transferred to my phone. Thank you so much.
The W890 was my first SE but regretably will also be my last. It's costing me a lot in time and money. I have to rely on my 'old' nokia or V6maxx whilst W890 back at suppliers for umpteenth time. A cellphone must first be a good or at least average phone before it pretends to be anything else!!
I bought this phone like this week and I fell in love with it there and then. I'm a little scared about all the negative feedback from users in here but I think I'll keep my phone low-pro, not maximize the memory so it won't crash. I fell in love with it. I got the black one and I name my Sony Ericsson W890i Walkman phone- "WAZ" :-)
It's made even hotter with my JASON WADE (of Lifehouse) wallpaper :-)
the design is vry nice...,d keypad is vry responsive,vry tactile.,d screen resolution is great..but d sound quality is vry bad.i expected that it has a good sound quality bcoz it is a walkman phone but i was really disapointed when i finally bought ds phone and found out that even my k660i has better sound quality than ds phone considering that k660 is not a walkman phone and cheaper compare to ds phone..i like everything abt w890 except d sound quality
well i bought this phone for my younger brother, well is very neat, very comfortable, no nothing to say, i like how did they do to the battery cover, unlike mine is w902, just a little difference between them, w890 is more affordable not like my w902.
i love the metal finish...give it a 8 out 10 over all (ten is the highest)
what java settings do you need by the way?
