Your questions just so much not in an average ownerś mind and that is the reason you do not answer.
Probably you should contact SE customer service..
SILV3RF0X, 22 Jan 2009Yes mate ure service provider will continue to honor the unlimited data usage on this handset ... moreRay UK is correct.
E-mail is considered data, and I don't get charged for that. I also can use the Yahoo messenger, and my email programs at no extra charge. It is when they 'KNOW' that you have a smart phone is when you get charged extra, for example, when you buy one from the service provider. I understand that smart phones may use more data while surfing the net, than a regular phone. I plan to use my Wi-Fi at home, and the internet from my provider, while out and about, if this is how they can tell you have a smart phone. Or, does the phone transmit something for the service provider to find out? I mean it is unlocked, not branded, so could they tell what kind of phone you are using?
If they had the phone I would not mind so much, but if I have to pay full price, and already have unlimited internet, and for personal use, what's the point?
Ray UK, 22 Jan 2009Hi U, glad you found my post helpful.
Regarding your query - what are my impressions of the... moreHi ray, i have gone through ur 14 jan post, its really a helpful feedback on x1. if u dont mind can u pls confirm me whether its fully thumb optimized r not.because some reviews say its not fully thumb optimized, and so need to use stylus a lot...is that true?
once again thanks for the feedback...
I am in South Africa and the X1 does not down load mail here. (pop3) Our local Sonyericsson office say that they know of the problem. So; here I have an office phone that can not download mail. I gave it back for a refund.
The rest of the phone is pretty cool.
The questions in my post of 14Jan2009 still remain unanswered. Someone did point me to the xda-developer site, but I couldn't find what I was looking (probably need to dig more) But yes, I'd really appreciate if someone could give me some simple responses to my queries:
1. Is there a way to backup the complete phone including all applications - like it is possible to do for the P1i using the Sony Ericsson Phone Suite? I remember I could do that for my old HP iPaq running Windows PocketPC using ActiveSync. The "backup/restore" feature seems to have been removed in the recent version of ActiveSync (i.e v4.5).
2. Can someone tell me what happens if the battery on the Xperia dies completely? On my iPaq, if that happened, and if the internal backup battery is also dead, the PDA would loose all data and get reset to factory default. (That's why I needed to run backups regularly for that).
3. Can we show the date/time for RSS feeds? And identify if an article has been read or still unread? My P1i had these features for the builtin RSS reader. Didn't find these on the X1.
4. Also, is there anyone using a good app to monitor stocks? (Free?) The one on TouchFlo was great, but I removed TF3D 'coz it made my X1 very unstable.

Regarding your query - what are my impressions of the X1 after a few days of use... I'd ask you to have a look at my posting on 14Jan2009. It's fairly detailed.
Hope it helps too. Cheers!
SILV3RF0X, 22 Jan 2009Yes mate ure service provider will continue to honor the unlimited data usage on this handset ... moreWhy would Direwolf get charged separately for emails? I think he wont. All he has to do is configure his gmail or any other imap/pop email onto his new X1. And the data downloaded because of this email is just that - "data"! And that's all free on his package.
Ya, if there's something smarter involved, like Blackberry Connect, he might get changed. I have never used Blackberry so dont know.
Can we download Real Player application in XPERIA X1? Downloaded video clip from YouTube on PC is supported by Real Playe, or any equivalent player.

The only thing u may get charged for is e-mails as this normally requires a further subscription.

can u also pls tell me which colour looks good.
Hi, can anyone plz tell me whether the autofocus of this fone works in video record mode or not? I have P990 in which AF only works in still picture mode. I am asking because I use this feature.
I have an 'off the wall' question, my service provider charges extra for the use of internet service on smart phones. I now have unlimited service on the internet on my plan with the W760. Now if I change from a Sony W760 to an unlocked X1, would they be able to tell that I have a smart phone?
I don't want to pay an extra $30 a month for internet if I don't have to, and not after going broke buying this phone. Any suggestions would also be helpful.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2009solid black or steel sliver is worth more?in other words which is higher in value?

Where did gsmarena get the 800+ hour of standby??!!
After a full charge, I did about 2 mins of web browsing over wi-fi then the handset was left in standby for around 6 hours. The battery has go down by to 90%.
I'll be putting the battery through it's paces today and post here later on to show my results...
