Downloading or creating themes

Is this possible?? Thanks in advance!
Yes, you can download tons of themes. The easy, safe way to do it is go to Sony's website. Use your computer first to see the themes and choose a few. After you find the themes you like, use the WAP browser on your phone and download them directly...
Go directly to the SE website to fun and downloads. You can get plenty of themes for free. They are always adding more.
I have got one solution for having themes in your Sony Ericsson W810.
Check out this site ddnmobile.com. It has numerous free wallpapers and themes, select your favorite themes or wallpapers and move it to your mobile. Positive thing about this ...

white screen - reboot issue

My w810i has frozen and rebooted itself several times while composing an MMS or picture message.

Ruling out a warrantee/exchange or 'debranding' of this handset, is anyone aware of the patch that Sony Ericsson was developing for this specific problem? As of 11/2006 I believe this patch was under development relating to the phones 'floating memory'.

On the surface I am not finding my answer on the Sony Ericsson site.

Orlando, FL
I am having trouble getting answers for my prob - my phone started running slow - so I turned it off and now all it does is flash a white screen. It also does this when I plug it into the charger. I have gotten no help from the sony site - any ideas...

Sony doesn't have the US T-Mobile settings on their site anymore. You can get them directly from T-Mobile.

W810 Replacement?

It's nearly time for a new phone, but I can't find anything that I like better than my W810.

I have used the flashlight ALOT (which not all of the new phones have), I like the FM radio, games, and the block form. My wife now has a slide, and I think I could handle that, but my work phone is a flip and I drop it alot, so I would like the new phone to be a block. I would also like to stay with SE. I've had three of their phones (T62u, T226, & W810) and I feel that I'm now brand loyal. Finally, I'm on AT&T and I want to stay with them since they are the only ones with service at my house.

Any recommendations for anything that maybe be coming in the near future?
I hear ya!
I have been looking for a w810i successor and have found nothing quite like it.

Many great walkmans and great cybershot brand phones.. but nothing with all the features of the 810 (namely the incredibly useful LED light)

I hope someo...

Now that I've debranded.....

I'm asking those who've debranded their phones (as I just finished doing) why the Cingular name still shows up on the main screen? I thought every vestige of the Cingular name would disappear. Also, any advice or tips to make the experience better would be welcome.
After I configured the phone for internet settings along with text & picture messaging, the Cingular name was replaced by AT&T. Imaginary problem solved.

W810i came w/Sundisk 128 ProDuo, but Sony 4G won't work...

Please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong place...

I've been using my W810i with the SanDisk 128 Pro Duo "MagicGate" that came with it, without a problem for months (bought from Cingular/ATT). So, now that the prices are down a bit, I bought a SONY 4Gig Pro Duo MagicGate.
Well, the phone didn't recognize it.
I called two different agents at SE, and they both said that "MagicGate" isn't compatable!
It appears to me that the Sony card isn't compatable, as the SanDisk works, but the Sony doesn't.
Do any of you use a Sony ProDuo MagicGate in your W810i?
Or, any other opinions on this problem?

Having more availability for the number of text messages the phone can hold.

Hey I was curious if there is any way to get the phone to save incoming and outgoing text messages to the SD card instead of the phone memory? My friend has a phone, a Nokia 5300 I believe, and it stores 1000+ in each I saw, and I was just wondering how that's possible?

If there's a way that I could find out how to get more in my inbox and outbox than just the 130 each or whatever I get, then it'd be appreciated 😁

Any way to increase speaker volume on the W810i?

The sound is vey low (even at maximum bars), making outdoor conversations a strugle.

Any software/firmware upgrades out there than can help fix the problem?

This phone is otherwise very good!
The only option at&t offers is to change to a w580i. Is it louder?

Thank you very much!

missed Call and Message Reminder Tones?

Is there any way to make it remind me when I've missed a call? Or even with a message that hasn't been opened, just like where it reminds you every 5 minutes or so.
Thank you in advance guys =)
I would also like to know if it is possible to have missed calls and message reminder tones. Anybody know?

Voice dialing with a SE Headset

Has anyone here who might own a Sony Ericsson bluetooth headset ever found a way to kick off a call using voice commands only. I've been able to do it with my wife's Jabra BT headset but not my SE HBH-GV435 headset. If you know how could explain how to set that up? Thanks.

Need to Upgrade - Leery of W810 - HELP !!!

I'm confirmed Nokia user but my two Nokia's are going to die pretty soon - AT&T can't seem to replace with like kind (6126 is OK but no FM - N75 too "busy")sooooo am interested in SE810 'cause me and Motorola don't get along.

BUT .....

... Coming from Nokia is UI going to be too strange?
... Keypad - looks awfully small and hard to get used to. True or no ?
... Another forum keeps mentioning dropped Calls and how to mod in order to fix (too much work)
... Several reviews refer to volume issues and the need to load new drivers to fix (too much work)

... RF and Call quality are top req's
... FM & Music player are next
... Addr Book / Calendar
I know how you feel. I love nokia. I was waiting for the Nokia 5300 till tmobile took it (no tmobile in my area and wanted it in purple) So due to the fact that my phone was being held by a rubberband and i was ashamed to have it while tryin to sell p...

W610 or W810?

Ok guys, I'm in the market for a new SE handset. I've heard good and bad about the w810 but not enough about the w610. So please, help me out. I need a reliable phone with a very good music player and decent camera.
Supposedly the 610 is an upgrade to the 810, but I have no experience with the 610, only the 810.
