When someone calls me and I put it to my ear I can't hear them but they can hear me. I have to put in the ear bud or put it on speakerphone to hear. i have changed the profile from hands free but it still won't work. There is something on the menu called basic handsfree but it says not available at this time. I haven't dropped it or anything. It just appears to be stuck in earbud mode. Please help

710 Screen protector

I used a PDA screen protector, cut to size. I measured it just inside the outer dimensions of
the screen itself. Since my work requires me to use the metric system, the dimensions are in metric. 41mm X 56mm.
Here is a little tip, left over from my model airplane days to make it MUCH easier to attach the protector and leave out the air bubbles.
Get a cup of water, put one drop of mild dishwashing soap and mix. spray or put a few drops of this mix on the screen. Peel the protector from its backing, don't touch the sticky side. Lay it on the screen, and use a lint free cloth to blot out the water. Then, use a spactula or something rubber to act like a squeegie and slowly work the excess water out of the screen.
Also, the soap/water mix acts...

Sony-Ericsson S710a: The twist top makes it ineligible for me.

I went to three carrier stores today, including two Cingular stores, a Sprint store, and a Verizon store. I saw and handled the Sony Ericsson S710a and have to report that the twist top was more than I want to deal with when using a phone. If it were a flip phone I would consider it, but going thru the motions and seeing for myself, I am discontinuing any research on it and opening up the field again.

At the second Cingular Store that I went to, I handled the S710 again and noticed that the top was wobbling and loose from usage.

Too bad. I was in love with this phone.

Sony Ericsson SE K750 / K750i

Hi- I am currently having SE K700i which I bought from South East Asia. I would like to change with either SE K750i or Motorola Razr V3 (probably the black one). My question is, do the new SE K750i have the same "snapping" sounds when taking a pictures, like the one on SE K700i? I feel like sometimes it's bothering me, like when I take a picture on my wife on a quite restaurant, the snapping sounds is so loud and sometimes many people look at me when I do that.

I heard that there is an update firmware (or something like that) that can be used to mute the "snapping/clicking" sounds. But I could not find it and I don't know how to use it. I am sorry I am not good at electronic thing.

What about Motorola Razr V3? Does it have a "snappin...

K750i USB Charging Speed

Hi, any ideas on the speed of the charger through USB connected to the PC? I think I notice a slower charge rate versus say a car charger or the A/C charger for in wall. I'm sure it is being there is less power going through this way. It's still a convenient way to charge your phone while at work or at home on the PC. I don't even need a car charger with this setup.

New S710A owner needs help...

just got it today and love it. however, i have a few questions.. so please bear with me.

- i've tried to store some jpeg pics onto the ms duo from my computer. i've stored it in the DCIM and other file folders with Image as the folder name.

but when i plug it into the phone.. nothing. i can't seem to find any photos i've uploaded. what's up with that? is there like a way to access it or set it so i can access those files from the MS duo?

- also, when you turn off the phone, do you have to slide it open before you can hit the power button off? or can you set a shortcut to power off?

- is there a new fireware upgrade available for the phone? how do you check for your current fireware on the phone?

thanks for all your help!

128MB MS Duo not working???

I picked up a SONY branded MS Duo (NOT Duo PRO) and when I put it in my phone id reads 0MB available. I have tried formatting it every which way using Sony and MS Windows XP software and it works fine in computer and reader but NOT in the phone???

Also, anyone have any idea when a FIRMWARE update is due for this thing? There are lots of quirks that should be addressed via FIRMWARE. Sony Tech Support is CLUELESS and Cingular Tech Support is worse!
