I am having problems with my contacts showing up on my Black Xperia X10i. I made sure I saved all 170 contacts to my AT&T sim card before I put it in the phone. When I put it in, and turned on the phone, nothing showed up. I tried to go through settings to see if it had to be checked but I can't find anything.
On my x10 i use handcent to manage my text messages when i someone texts me with a smiley in the text - i get the shortcut instead of the small pic if i enter a smiley and send it to my phone...i get the picture.
The difference i can see is the one i get does not include the - between the colon character anyway of changing this?
Recently bought the x10 and I am still getting used to it. One thing I have noticed is that when a caller not on my list is calling, I only see the number. When I plop my sim back into my old shitty LG VU, I can once again see the number and the name registered to it. Is this an x10 thing?
I recently bought an X10 Mini Pro on 02 Pay as You Go. I tried to upgrade the software using the PC Companion, but I think I must have done something wrong, because whenever I 'Show Balance' on screen, it shows the amount remaining but now instead of showing the £ sign before the number, it now shows a '?'. I've tried repairing it using the PC Companion and also doing a factory reset but this hasn't solved the problem.
I have an Xperia 10 mini pro and am having extreme difficulty with text messages. Basically when someone sends me a text message, I can see the first part of it on the screen that shows the various text conversations that I am having with people BUT when I click on that particular conversation, the text message isn't there. To give an example, my husband and I have been texting a lot tonight and I have the text conversation up to about 2 hours ago, but none of the messages since then are visible (although the first line of the last one he sent to me is visible on the main text message screen).
I have two groups of contacts "MyContacts" and "Utilities". When I set up synching I selected to copy "All contacts".
Unfortunatey, when I look what's on my area on sonyericsson.com/wportal I see only the contacts from the group "MyContacts".
I.e. the site creates a false feeling of security - if I need to restore my phone from this site I will irrecovarebly lose lots of data.
I don't know is SE forgot to test their function or Android-hackers don't understand the features of the contacts.
All area of handling the contacts stinks seriously, and mkes you wander if the Android people ever used a mobile phone :
1. X10 does not accept contacts sent via SMS (VCARD-format), (or via MMS or bluetooth)
2. X10 does not sync with Outlook where most of business people have their contacts, and maintain them when receiving corporate mails etc.
3. The only way to get the contacts is to export from PC to a csv-file and import to gmail, and then sync to the phone. This is not that flexible due the export via csv. I.e. If I create cntacts in the phone they will not reach Outlook.
Just received my phone yesterday and had a problem getting the SIM contacts from my old W910i phone to the Xperia x10. Followed the instructions to the letter, then called up Orange and they tried a few ways to get them over, went to the shop this morning to try and sort it out but after over an hour it was to no avail. The young chap in the store said that it must be based on the database setup - they must be incompatible.
So I now have to manually input my old contacts on the new phone when I encountered another problem - whilst inputting a contact detail, I pressed something on the bottom left of the keyboard and suddenly I am faced with Korean language. I went to Settings and set the language to English UK and went back to the contact I was editing, but still faced with a Korean keyboard.
i recently purchaed my SE x10 mini pro, and im relatively happy with it, although there are a few simle functions missing. i know how to import your sim contacts onto your phone, however is there a way to export contacts onto your sim? so that each time i add a new contact i'd save it onto the sim rather than the phone?
Had my x10 for nearly 2 weeks now and absolutely love it, I have one niggle though, When sending sms i cant add contact instead having to enter number, This is really frustrating me as it takes ages to get number. All my other phones were able to add contact rather than number, Is there a solution?
I installed android 2.1 today but for some reason I can't restore my contacts.I followed the instructions on the sony ericsson webpage and used the SE backup software to make a backup of my contacts, mms, photos etc. When I restored everything after the update everything was restored except my contacts. How can I get my contacts back? Is there some way to extract them manually from the backup file or something? The backup software can't seem to restore them for me.
My problem is I didn't want to sync my google contacts with my phone directory but it automatically did that when I downloaded applications from the android market (bec. downloading requires me to log in to my google account).... it freaks me out because I don't want to do that. My phone directory should be exclusively for phone nos. only, no email addresses. I want to delete some entries in my phone directory, how can i do that WITHOUT doing it one by one?
xperia x10, how can I easily view all contacts to send the same sms to with out typing in the first 2 letters of there name, just want a drop down list because sometimes I can't remeber everybodys name that I want to send the message to because sometimes its 30 people and that would be a slow way of doing typing the first 2 letters, is this at all possible, last phone had drop down box and you just scrolled through and ticked which ones
Anyone know how to get small thumbnail pictures of your contacts on your homepage? like the ones you call often. right now its just the little default contact card with the name . HTC Dream was able to show the pictures but not xperia. weird. also while im posting might as well save threads and ask here lol....
I tried playing an MkV video file.. But its very choppy and slo-mo kind of. tried using Xandplayer and something else. no help. is there a best above all media player for x10? i had a VLC player for my old HTC dream that worked fine. I would love to watch my sitcom episodes on my phone.
When i look in my contacts, i see it allows you to have a photo for each person. When i link the contact to facebook, it doesent put their picture on the contact. do i really have to walk around and manually take a picture of each one of my friends in order to have it on my contacts list?
if this question had been asked before, but after searching for a bit, i could not come across anything so please forgive me if this is a repost. so basically, I want to copy the contacts from my X10 to the Sim card as i don't want any of them to get deleted by accident. However after playing around with the phone for a bit, i could not come across anything.
I got my new Xperia X10 yesterday, and when i went into the phone book for the first time to copy contacts from Sim i made the mistake of coming out of the setup wizard, and now i cant see how to copy from sim. Someone please help, i have no contacts on my phone!
Can anyone tell me how to go about transferring my contacts from Ovi on my PC to my new phone Xperia X10i. I have currently downloaded my contacts and everything else on to an old Nokia phone and am sending each contact individually via bluetooth.
My Xperia X10 has developed several faults and has to go back to SE for repair / replacement. In the meantime I plan to use my old SE C902 as a backup. I need to transfer all my contacts from the X10 to the C902. So far I've tried. copying all my contacts to the SIM card then putting the card in the C902. The c902 then promptly declares "List Empty" copying all my contacts to the memory card. Unfortunately the X10 and C902 use different memory cards. sending all contacts via bluetooth using "Bluetooth File Transfer" downloaded from the market place. The result of this is "unable to send file"
backing up the contacts from the X10 to my laptop and then restoring them to my C902. Unfortunately the two phones use different versions of PC Suite and neither recognises the other. I don't want to spend a week or two without access to my contacts, and short of sitting down with an old fashioned paper and pen and scrawling them all down before I send it in for repair I'm at a loss what to do!
