For those who are buying it as their first complete touchphone ...few things u should know..
1) Calling wont be easy as ur previous phone , atleast not at the start...there is no hardware button to answer ur call.
2) while ur driving especially a bike ...and u wanna quickly answer ur phone ...arrghh forget about it ...u wont be able to do this with any complete touch oriented phone..u need to stop by the time that turns into a missed call.
3)If the phone was outta ur budget and u still bought it ...there is always gonna be this thing back off ur mind ..if the phone in ur pocket is not along with the keys, hope the phone didn't get a scratch :) *happens with me* :D
4)Now the good part, multimedia/web browsing is amazing on a capacitive touch screen like Xperia X10...its just so smooth...
just thought for first time touch screen phone buyers u should keep this in mind...
lucky, 03 Jun 2010@ Ravz
You have posted very useful information about this phone. I am currently using Bb 90... moreim not sure why is gsm arena not letting me post my reply...
lucky here is a suggestion...grab xperia x10 from the nearest center and feel it urself ...as its a personal choice when it comes to standalone keyboard and completely touch oriented phone...it comes down to what ur comfortable with :)
dont rush urself into buying coz of the market hype..take ur time...and as u know there is always a better product waiting for launch if this doesn't suit ur choice...
Guys , need some help here . Someone told me Garmin can be used in X10 ? Is it true ? If it is , any site 2 share pls ....Tx

You have posted very useful information about this phone. I am currently using Bb 90... moreHey Lucky,
Typing email with this thing is perfect..and u can download whatever keyboard suits u from the android market for free...thats the best part being on android...its highly customizable...
but i work with the standard android keyboard and not the SE one as for me space bar is kinda cramped up..
email config is simple ...for me it was auto with no manual settings were required...(works fine for gmail,yahoo,hotmail)
facebook and twitter can be accessed from timescape as well which is great...u can try viewing a video of it on youtube...u will know what im talking about ...it works like a charm.
the only thing which bugs me is Xperia x10 makes ur gmail account as ur default for synchronizing contacts n other google related things ...and doesnt let u change even if u know u have another gmail account(although u may setup ur other gmail account on the phone for checking mails)...not sure if thats the case with other android phone as well or its just X10...but that can be neglected ...as mostly people have only one email account unlike me having 7-8 :(
i dont know if that answers ur query...if u have any specific question or query ..do lemme know :)
ANAX, 03 Jun 2010Hii i bot just s der day. Really an Fascinatin piece of product from SE but still i hve few do... moreHey Anax,
Congrats on the purchase :)
dont worry u really dont need to be a techie, its always good to fiddle with the phone...
answers to ur post
1)Music Equalizer is something u probably wont miss anyway on Xperia X10,it sounds good...although other phones like Satio and Vivaz got an update from SE..so they might add it later on but no official comment on it from SE.
2) Thats actually does happen with Windows 7...try unplugging and plugging it back..does work after sometime....i would suggest u hooking ur cellphone via datacable which came with the phone to the computer...in that way u can access the memory card as well..and u dont need to remove ur memory card...
3) Not by default, u can go to android market(in ur cellphone menu) make sure ur cellphone is connected via wifi or 3G which ever suits u...in the android market search for an application called astro file manager ...it does the work u :) its totally free...although downloading may cost u depending on ur carrier..so its better to be on wifi while ur doing this.
4)sure its simple,dun worry...
step 1) goto ur phonebook
step 2) enter the contact name u want to assign a ringtone
step 3) click on edit
step 4) u will see an option ringtone beside which there is a drop down and has default written. click on it
step 5)click on select music and browse the song u want to assign as ringtone..
step 6) click done when ur done with the changes.
and Anax u can visit this blog hxxp://www.xperiax10.net/
(replace xx with tt)
they have tones of info that u may need to get whatever info u require on X10...and if that doesnt help we are there to help :)
im sure u gonna love ur new phone ...cheers :)

Hey, that is an American company, America is very advanced!!! :) I can't wait to see that phone. I said that I don't have problem with Motorola, I wish good luck for them. I want one thing in this forum: PEACE! :)
That is the most important thing here, and to help others.

Anonymous, 03 Jun 2010satio is not a problem even with 20 mp you can make. Moto work we android platform now. x10 is... moreOh come on man, do you really believe these things? I don't want to blame Motorola, because it is an american company, but how can Motorola to beat HTC and SE? Motorola even can't face HTC, believe me. I know that you like Moto more than SE, and I have NO problems with it, but they can't beat SE, or HTC, because HTC is more advanced than any other smart phone maker. They make ONLY smart phones. :)
Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2010Ok, there is no problem. We will see what kind of phones they will announce at summer time. SE... moresatio is not a problem even with 20 mp you can make. Moto work we android platform now. x10 is one of android phone. the rumors sony walkman phones with 1.6 or 2.1 that is the problem. android we control every soon all the other os. satio symbian os can not much with x10 even if satio have 12 mp. and it prouved that froyo is the fast os in the market and moto is ready to release 2 high end android phone better than x10 in july. xtreme and droid 2. beleave me if milestone is in india, uk, france, south africa, usa, china, brazil, germany and so one and still going to other country like now canada. both droid will make it too. for you information flipout it first release in europe. moto promise to release 20 android in 2010 now 10 is in the market 2 will come in june. and 8 remain which mean if se make x12 like moto will bring xtreme 2 to crash x12. moto have an android 4g device to face htc evo and iphone 4g.
[deleted post]You will see, that Sony Ericsson will take Motorola's position this year! Sony Ericsson will announce big things this year, this is what I believe, and I know them very well. Moto will announce Shadow, but Shadow will be available in the whole world?? I don't think so.
allbrands, 03 Jun 2010Sorry, don't know anything about the S series. I prefer to wait until a phone is released and... moreOk, there is no problem. We will see what kind of phones they will announce at summer time. SE will announce this month a Walkman Android phone, and probably the Satio's successor, with 15MP camera. :D
so se users start to understand the badness of having android 1.6 and rumors said se will release the failling walkman phone on android os 1.6 or 2.1 which remain very slow and poor against froyo. in fact if gingerbread the android 3.0 will be release in q4 probably in december as google gift, only one version can be released between 2.2 and 3.0? maybe q3 may have android 2.4 or 2.5? still x10 will get 2.1 in q4 between september and november, which still late. others will get 2.4 or 2.5 in q3. and x10 with 2.1 will remain slow because it is from 2.2 the os become 2 or 5 times faster than 2.1 or 1.x mean in q4 once again x10 will fail. why because of sony ui that are heavy and complicated to updape. thanx moto people complain for the first motoblur but we have ninjablur light and speed by running without showing himself on moto droid xtreme. se users please come and bash the new ui ninjablur as you did with motoblur. and to make it even better one of the moto xtreme or droid 2 maybe both with have froyo out of the box. hello moto.
Ravz, 03 Jun 2010After using it for more than 2-3 weeks, Here is the conclusion (unbiased) i've come to.
1) ... moreHii i bot just s der day. Really an Fascinatin piece of product from SE but still i hve few doubts

2. I cant access my SD memory card from my system (WIN 7 ) using card reader

4 how to add music track to personal contact ringtone assign

Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2010Well Nokia is watching others, I agree with this. About MP, I know that MP is NOT so important... moreSorry, don't know anything about the S series. I prefer to wait until a phone is released and find someone with it and try it for myself. There will always be a better phone the next month, thats just competition.
