Anyone know of a good e-mail application for yahoo/hotmail, pop mail available for this model? The one that comes with it, MobileEmail, will not let you move e-mails in yahoo/hotmail into folders or create new ones. Ymail application is not compatible for this phone, and the web based wevrsion is painfully slow. Suggestions?
Is anyone interested in using the phone as a modem? I was able to set up both my PDA and laptop to use the phone as a modem and it works pretty well. But, you better get one of the data upgrades (5MB or better). I browsed eBay on my PDA and that ate up about 2MB. If anyone is interested in the settings I used, I can post them in a reply.
Why do this? The phone's browser is pretty limited and even my old non-web enabled Sony Clie can browse better than the phone (after I installed a browser). Right now, I am using the IR interface, but I look forward to getting a Bluetooth dongle.
I've only had this phone over a year. Is it because I got one of the firsts, and perhaps there's a bug?
Well, both my internal and external screens just went totally blank. My external screen is blue, while my internal is just showing white. I press the menu buttons, and I can still get to my media player and make calls. Everything is working fine, just except the fact that I can't see ANYTHING whatsoever.
I tried rebooting the phone, take the battery out, using a different battery, taking the sim card out, everything!
Did anyone else have this problem?
What happens if my warranty expires? Can I still trade it in if it has internal problems? Can I trade it in for another phone of equal value?
I don't have the 520 yet, but I'm thinking about it. One feature I've liked about the Motos is that you can create your own "canned" text messages that you can simply pull up and send to anyone at anytime. I do a lot of TMing, and I had an old Ericsson (before the Sony merger) that only had pre-programmed basic message templates. Does the 520 have this option? It's pretty much the only factor that will make the decision for me between it and the Moto 551/557. I like the looks and memory of the SE, but the TM thing is pretty important to me, too. Thanks..
There is a solution yo yhe dreadful PTT button with the flip closed press ptt then the + sign (On the left) then PTT again or menu then # then locks then PTT Button Then lock (this lock takes effect 45 seconds after closing the flip) Now That Wasnt Hard Now Was It 🤣 🙄
When my phone is in silent, the camera sill makes the shutter sound. This is a problem because when i'm in class, the button is so sensitive, that it takes pictures in my pocket, making the shutter sound. Is there any way to disable the sound?
anyone have any problems with their phone shutting off randonmly? I have to turn my phone back on about 15 times a day. It doesn't matter if it's fully charged or low battery. It will shut off when it's idle, or in the middle of a conversation. This is my second Z520a and I'm about ready to switch.
OK.what is going on with my phone? I have had no problems but now when the phone rings or I get text message the external screen lights up white with a pale picture of a phone but now no caller name or number etc. Any ideas? I have changed wallpaper, turned off and on, took out battery etc. Still white when it rings. HELP. Now annoying cos can't tell who is calling when it rings unless I open the phone.
Anyone have any luck with the voice dialing? When I try to set it up it says to speak after the tone, which I do, then it claims the background noise is too high - which it isn't. So what is the secret? Otherwise this phone is great so far
...anyway, I updated my phone's firmware from the sony website, which actually killed the camera driver so I had to send it in and get the firmware put on it there, not sure if it's the old firmware or not, anyhoo, my phone was gone for about a month and a half and my short term memory sucks, but I'm positive you could set a ringtone for blocked/restricted ID, now I can't find the option anywhere, I've looked through the user manual and I can't find it there either, anyhelp or am I just remembering wrong?
laptop bluetooth to z525a to isp ........ help please !!!
I have a sony ericsson z525a through cingular. I also have a roadrunner cable account at home. Roadrunner allows remote access to my account via phone modem while travelling etc. I would like to use my laptop while travelling, connect to my cell phone using a usb bluetooth, and use the cell phone as my modem, and dial my roadrunner dial up access number......bingo.....internet connection. But it doesnt work. Bluetooth between phone and laptop seems fine. Transfers pictures etc fine. just doesnt want to dial out and connect. Been working on this for days. Any help greatly appreciated !!!!
I just got the phone yesterday and noticed that each time I flip the phone open, it briefly flickers an all-white screen and then goes blank for a split second before stabilizing to the default background/standby mode. For those who have this phone, is this typical? Thanks...
