Phone Problems

My phone has been giving me a little trouble of late. Occaisionally the little icon of a crossed-out phone will appear and pretty much nothing having to do with phone calls will work. It freezes a lot and such as well. Is this a firmware problem? What is the latest firmware version? Thanks.

Problems with handset powering up on it's own

I have been experiencing a very strange problem. When I power the handset off, within minutes, sometimes seconds, it powers itself back on. I replaced the handset, but continued to have the problem. Sony Ericcson sent me a new battery. Still having problems. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas what it could be? The only thing left to change is the SIM card, and I doubt that would cause this issue.

Dumb question but is there a chance it's a virus? Embarassed Laughing

Problems with Bluetooth


When I disconnect my Bluetooth headset, there is no volume in earphone.
Only way to get it back is to completly reboot and return to default settings.
After that I loose all my contacts from address book.

Looking to Upgrade S710a

Ok, so I have a S710a that I am in love with. But unfortunately, I dont like holding onto one phone for to long. ( Used to work for Cingular so I am acustomed to a new phone every 2-4 weeks ) This phone has been great, hell there is absolutley nothing wrong with it. Yet I want to upgrade to something new. Was never a big SE fan until this phone, so I am kind of out of the loop to if it was just the S710interface that was a winner, or if SE finally got there heads out of there asses after the whole T300 series phones. So if any of you can lend a hand, let me know........What is an appropriate update to this phone. Wink

I was wondering what everybody thought. I know I love my s710a. I honestly think it's the best phone out there. I just wish that it had a bigger memory card and that's about it. I have seen the W850 and I wanted to know what everybody thought. It comes with 1GB memory card and you can upgrade to 4GB. Plus a two meg camera. Can you really beat it. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Taking apart A S710a

Has anyone tried taking about the case of the s710a? I wanna take the black parts all off, and pant it. I'm just not to sure how to, any help would be really appreciated. I'd like to take off both the front and back, I found the back screws under the battery, and it seems like I can take it off if I unscrew them, but the front seems almost connected to the screen, so just wanna know if it's possible to take the front off too.

W900 vs. S710a...

Surprised I did it, compared to somewhat close phones. When i say somewhat, i personally consider the W600i/W550i incomparable to the s710a due to the lack of aesthetic value, screen size, and NO external memory i.e memory stick. W600i, waste of my time, better than most phones out there, but oh well. Anyhoo, anyone else thinkin' that the w900 is prolly the pinnacle of cell phones? Come on, internal memory of 512mb, external memory of up to 2gb., hot in white, just too much to talk about. Anyone who hasn't looked it up check it out. Anyone who has i'm interested in others opinions. Lemme know Wink ~ Mahalo
