Thanks. You seem to be an expert here. Wish to chat with you more so that I can get instant reply. I can't wait.. :( I am in very bad mood due to the phone problem. You have any messenger?
I just would like to clarify more on fiemware and software.
1. Who is responsible to upgrade the firmware of the phone? We have to do it by our own?
2. How to check the current firmware of my phone and what is the firmware I need to upgrade to?
3. You are suspecting my firmware has got problem?
1. The service center upgraded my phone with latest software as advised by SE call center. But the problem still persist. They also told me that there is onother new software coming soon, but not released yet.
Although the service center promised to replace me with new phone, but I have no confident on that. They still have not get back to me when I can go to collect the phone until now.
Btw, so u think that could be cause by the SIM? We tested both 2.5G SIM and 3G SIM with different number yesterday, it gives the same result.
the theme creator v3.10 is the best choice if you want to personalize your theme y yourself. and the pink text/background you wanted badly is also available on that software. maybe you can download it at this link:
and it requires some of your expertise in making themes for SE phones so you can use it accurately.
try enabling the powersaving mode of the LCD screen settings under the settings menu. it will reduce the usage of the battery if not in use. and will save 30-40% of the battery consumption.
better first update your firmware to the latest version available at the sonyericsson site. that one maybe better as if the files won't get deleted after the update unlike the upgrading one. try it and tell me if there's already improvement. the software used on the service center at your location isn't latest i think. just try it before you change your phone.
I went for upgrade my phone to the latest software as advised to solve the ringtone problem. However, the problem still persisit.
I believe it is the software problem that cuase the personalised ringtone not working properly.
Service center change the board of my phone. And it doesn't work!! Finally, they promised tto replace a whole new phone for me... Bad Luck.
They are suspecting the problem is caused by the SIM card. Only 3G SIM will work fine with this phone for personalised ringtone problem. Anyone has ideas on this?
Mine doesn't turn off automatically after use. That doesn't sound normal. U might want to check.
True,the internal camera can't be used to take pictures. But it's only a VGA camera inside. You wouldn't want to use it to take pictures.
I just have issues with the battery. It seems that the real talk time/standby time is way shorter than advertised (usually about 3-5 days), while the standby time is supposed to be 400 hours (16 days). I don't talk much. I notice that it uses about 20% of the power a day, when most of the time it's on standby and only used for calls a few minutes a day. Anyone wants to comment on this? (seems this is the same to other SE phones)
yeah i just got it! the background was black and the font is red.. i hope i can find pink too hehe! and all the colors.. hope there's an application like that.. and before i forgot,, i got those by finding some themes on the net.. thanks!!! it is so COOL!!
thanks for the link.. i misconcepted you with curly sue hehe sorry for that..
thanks for the link.. and for the themes, yeah i have already changed them and ive tried all the themes available in my phone. i can only use to change my background color in creating a picture message and not on sms messaging.. ive already contact SE but they haven't responded yet.. pls help! i really wanrt it badly hehe!
"can you see who is calling you on the front of the screen ???"
Yes, and you can also see who sent you text messages (when you get one) :)
I bought my phone 2 weeks ago and i love it :D It's pink and the camera is really good :D
I tried bi MIDI and MP3. Both having the same problem.
I just called up Sony Ericsson customer support and they informed that my software version of RIEJ001 need to be upgraded to R1GB001 to solve the problem. This can only be done at the Service Center.
If any of u is using the same software version as me, advisable to go for upgrade in order to ensure the Personalised Ringtone(at least) to work as per normal.
The Personalised Ringtone only works for certain entry at certain time. It is an intermittent problem!
just wanna ask, what type of file do you use to play the ringtone? ther are lots of audio formats and i think this one simply works on Mp3 and MIDI. but if it's WAV then i can't really make it. just see if the files is Mp3 and Midi and it won't make you down..
I think the Personalised Ringtone is having bugs.. some of the phone call can play the personalised ringtone as what we have set under contacts but some cannot.
SE, please fix this intermittent bug... So annoying..
hey i just bought this phone.. and i love it soo much.. no 1 has it here in canada soo everyone compliments it.. not only does it look hot but its a good phone.. i've had no problems with it soo far.. the only thing i recommend when u purchase this phone is to get a case for it because if u dont protect it its a gaurantee that its gonna get scratched.
try changing the theme of the phone. i think the SE theme usually changes background colors,text color,wallpapers and even the icons and the layout of the menu and in all parts. there are pre-installed there in your phone but if you are bored theres esato.com and zedge to accompany...
hi guys! i want to know how to change the font color and the background in the messaging.
