Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Cannot Open Market / Browser Not Responding After Update
Aug 10, 2010
Today, when I connected the phone (SE Xperia x10i) to PC, I was shown 'update available'. I updated. All worked well, but the Market is not working after the update, nor is the browser. The market is showing 'loading' with terms and conditions (it is more than 3 hours now), while in the browser, only the Google homepage is opening.
No other site or Search option in Google is working. However, other widgets like Facebook, G mail or email is working fine. The phone is showing to be 'up to date'. I have accessed the market quite a number of times before the update & require some apps from it urgently.
I've bought a Xperia X10 a few weeks ago with great expectations, but it lasted with a huge disappointment! Whatever I guess I have to wait for 2.1 update but I am not sure it will satisfy anybody. As I wrote in title there are some serious and annoying problems, I cant sign in my twitter account on the phone because of login and connection problem (however I didnt get any problems at signing in Facebook and Gmail accounts).
Second problem is "missing" Android Market application on the phone. Anyway I found the official .apk (vending.apk) from the net and loaded to my phone but it didnt work and caused freezing and error messages as "not responding / force to close" etc. Also I cant reach to Market site from Browser, no way!
The last and stupid problem is "reseting and deleting" Browser setting and bookmarks without any reason or action like hardreset or even turn on/off the phone! As an example: I set homepage as google.com and later on I checked ok! but for the second use after a couple of time, when I started the browser it opens with SE Wap Page as default and removed my homepage from settings. Also phone deletes the Bookmarks which I add.
i have an xperia x10 and i was very happy with it until y reset it now i cant find app that i could find before the reset and i think it is because the update, what should i do? An example is the sniper shot app i was very happy with it and now i cant find it on android, and now i have to install all apps using Astro and its very boring.
Since last night (let's say about 36 hours) I haven't been able to download/update anything from the android market. Is just a problem with me or is the market down at the moment. Most frustrating. I really want to get a bookmark organiser.
Almost all major smartphones that have similar specs with the X10 are getting the Froyo 2.2 update treatment in the coming few weeks or in the pipeline and it's amazing that you are still sitting on this with regards to the possibility of this particular update. I hope you do realise that the company are losing customers fast and this will be killing the business as you are effectively flogging phones that are all out of date or not in keeping with the market. I only hope that the news will inevitably put some pressure on you to bring forward these updates including the 2.2 (only if...). The 2.1 update plan at the end of Q3 or beginning of Q4 and with no definitive answer whether the X10 is going to receive the 2.2 update in the future is just not good enough. Unless the 2.2 update comes in early Q4 which is highly unlikely with the way things are going if you are only going to release 2.1 then, it would be pointless.
It's no brainer to release 2.2 straightaway as opposed to the 2.1 update announced and with further updates to tweak the Timescape and Mediascape later on if they are the ones that are holding up the release of the 2.2 update. I am sick of being left in the dark with the 2.2 update. I want a definitive answer if this is going to happen OR NOT! SE's handling of this fast and competitive market is just inept and way to slow. It won't surprise me that you could be following Nokia's footsteps in the next financial year if the current situation continues. I want a phone that comes with the right support and updates it deserves (not out of date within 3 month period!). I am now thinking that perhaps I should get the Samsung Galaxy S instead. SE, please listen to the customers and take action to address what your loyal customers want and deserve.
I posted this under applications and got zero response. Anyone here care to share their views? For the last few days I have disabled task killer, and since then haven't killed a single app. First day the phone got leggy and I had to reboot, but since then no issues. Ive installed a memory meter and it got right down to 10% available memory before it got leggy. now it averages about 35% free memory (92mb) Ive read that frequently killing background apps is not really good for the operation of the phone? Should I Install a Task Manager/Killer on My Android Device? This sounds true, or am I being suckered into the media, Should I rather leave all the apps running in the background? When I did have Task panel running most of the apps where on the auto kill list, but when ever I open task panel, all these apps are listed under active apps, but are all highlighted in red. Any idea as to why? Are these apps actually being killed or is this whole app killer a farce?
Today I attempted an upgrade and when the sony ericsson completed my phone just didn't respond. All I now get is a red blinking light in the top right hand corner, notification? What has happened to cause this and can it be fixed?
I am unable to download and update free apps from the Android Market on my Xperia X10 since the last 15-20 days. Can anyone help me with this problem? I am facing a lot of issues due to non-availability of many already installed apps and also I am unable to download and use new apps.
My girlfriend just got an x10 to match mine and for some reason every once and a while, the 3 buttons at the bottom completely stop working. At first I thought the phone froze but I could still use the on-screen keyboard and press whatever I wanted on screen but the 3 buttons wouldn't work oO This has NEVER happened with my phone.
After searching around a bit, I only found one solution which was "if you have a gel phone cover, take it off and see if it works." We tried that and it seems (so far, for an hour or so) that it's working fine. That doesn't make much sense to me as we have the same phone and the same cover - just a different colour. Anyone had this problem before? Should we be bringing the phone back or is there something I'm overlooking?
Please advse me how to open the old calendar data on my Z10.I have made the copy of the calendar contents on my old SE P990i and by the memory card transfer it to my new X10. I can not found the option how to open and install the saved calendar data in the Calendar on X10.
As soon as I plugged the USB cable in the computer it started installing PC Companion, this all installed correctly. I cannot open the file sharing option the only time its will open is when the phone is not connected, so I do this then connect my phone and thats it nothing else.
I go on Media Go and I just cannot transfer any files over to my phone the only transfer option I get is to put it into another folder. My sd card that comes with the phone will keep saying unavaliable. Now I am not normally slow at working phones but this has me completely stumped.
So, I got my x10 like a week ago. I have not had any problems with it until today. Whenever I open up the wifi settings, the screen freezes and asks if I want to force close or wait. I have used the wifi a little before, but this is the first time that my phone has done this.
when i click on my browser tab my homepage comes up but tell me my wifi is on or im connected to seperate network when im on my home network (3) can anyone help with this annoying problem, if i type in the address i can go to three home page but internet style (full page) i cant seem to make sense off this
I raised over and over to your Accredited Service Centers here in the Philippines namely MemoXpress and Semicon. I already escalated a lot of issues but they were not able to fix all of it and they just replaced my phone with new Xperia X2 phone not just once but twice. Unfortunately, some issues are still open and haven't fixed yet. See issues and recreational steps below.
1. Backlight is ON even the phone is turned OFF. Keep open any media file (i.e. picture, video, so on) >> Turn the phone off >> Backlight is still on
2. Battery is drained when the battery is removed and inserted it again. Turn the phone on >> Turn it off >> Remove battery >> Insert battery >> Turn the phone on >> Battery is drained..................
Am looking for some help have had an issue on more than 1 occasion. Here goes hopefully i will explain it clearly . When receiving .jpg files via emails i am having problems and have had from day one is i cant seem to open the images through the phone. I have a image of the Android man in green in the emails with the filename eg car.jpg have tried clicking on it to open but no joy plz plz do you know what is wrong. Xperia x10.
when trying to access forums, or login to websites i cannot do this on the x10. I enter the username, and the phone immediately submits the form, without giving me a chance to enter the password. Also is there a better keyboard for those of us with fat fingers?
I have a Motorola Droid; today the Voice Search stopped working. I've not installed or even updated anything, have not changed any setting in any app anywhere- but it sticks on "Speak Now." Hitting Cancel makes it stop, but killing all apps and restarting didn't help, and problem continues. Any ideas of where to even start?
PS- the problem occurs when I have the browser open.
Is there any way to get timescape to open the facebook app instead of the web browser when a facebook "leaf" is touched. I have it set that Twidroid will open for twitter "leaves" but I can't figure out how to get it to use the Facebook app.
