Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Screen Autolock Off?
Sep 5, 2010
I'm just wondering if there is any way of turning the screen autolock off on my xperia 10 mini? It has always been an option available on other phones, you can either lock the keys manually or set an auto lock for them to lock after like a few seconds or minutes etc. Yet this seems to be missing from the x10 mini. I don't mind the screen switching off (to save battery), that happened on my last phone, but the keys (screen) didn't lock at the same time, you just tap the screen to 'wake' the phone again, and it should wake in its previous setting too, such as in the messages folder, or on a internet screen, or on the music player etc. Its kinda frustrating when you are in a lengthy text conversation and they reply just after the screen goes off and you are forever unlocking the phone when it is just sat on the desk in front of you. Same as if you are reading a document and you put the phone down then have to unlock it again when you come back to it. Its kinda annoying. I am more than capable of locking the phone myself when I want to put it in my pocket. Anyone else got any tips? I want to avoid putting the screen time out on 'never' because then I'll be forever locking the screen to conserve battery (and no doubt someone will text just after I lock it.
Have owned an xperia mini pro for about 2 weeks now. It has a problem that every few days or so the screen locks up and becomes unresponsive and the only way to reset it is to do a battery pull. My question basically is should I take it back to the shop, or is it likely to need to have android reinstalled or something?
It did this on the very first startup after unboxing, it froze up when choosing the language setting, so obviously it is unrelated to any other apps i have installed. At the time I didnt think it was too much of a problem but then as I say, it started doing it every few days.
I'm having an Xperia X10 and I like most of the features though some things annoy me just like this. The phone automatically locks itself after an call. This is becoming really irritating when you want to make few calls and every time you have to unlock and then call, then unlock again. How can we disable this so that I've to lock it manually?
Please is it possible for me to browse the internet on my pc using my sonyericsson xperia x10 mini pro. Dont know how cause the phone doesnt support Pc suite, only Pc companion, and hence I dont know how else to do it.
The addition of a screen protector with the phone is very useful, but is it possible to reorder one from sony so it is the correct fit? I have seen many generic ones, but they look the wrong shape. Anybody have experience of replacing the protector yet? Looking for one to fit the x10 mini pro.
Ive been tweaking with the crop tool but all it gives me are zoomed out versions of the photos. ive also tried to change the size of the photos but given up after a couple of unsuccessful tries to make it fit.
I've been using my X10 mini for 3-4 months now. The screen is already full of scratches (even with careful use), some are smaller, some are larger.Do you guys happen to have any suggestions on what products would be best (and in any case, not make things any worse) to polish the screen? Some products which can be found from Amazon or eBay would be great.I'm thinking of buying an invisibleSHIELD for the phone, but I'd like to have a scratch-free screen underneath it.Thanks Sony Ericsson for misguiding the customers with specifications promising a scratch resistant screen, while it obviously is just some soft plastic.
I have a problem with the screen of my x10 mini. The screen brightness is unsteady. The screen brightness goes up and down when I'm using the phone and i don't know why. I searched via the forum and saw a thread that has the same topic but they didn't come up with a solution so i open the the discussion again.
I went on settings>basic phone settings>settings download>tesco mobile. not alot changed, well until i realised a little E sometimes G with two arrows appear on the top line of the screen, did not pay much attention to it until i have just gone to use my phone and i have no credit left and i am sure that has something to do wtih it why is this and how do i stop it from running without resetting the phone?
How do i disable automatic brightness adjustment? I can adjust the brightness through settings->screen options->brightness, but the phone still automatically adjust brightness according to ambient light.
I bought my Xperia mini here in Saudi, but unfortunately I cannot see the Market Icon on the main screen. I tried googling and they said that I might need to change the region of my phone. How do I do that? Also, I can send pictures via bluetooth but I cannot receive any files nor pictures from them. They can detect the name of my phone but they are unable to establish connection to my phone.
Checking out media players, I downloaded Zimly and Mixzing (thanks suze!) to compare. Both installed instantly but only Zimly appeared as an icon on the home screen. When I go to Settings>Applications>Manage applications they are both listed as installed, however I need to have Mixzing drop its icon for me to be able to use it from reviews etc I actually think that's the one I'll be keeping anyway, a clear case of sod's Law that of the two that one would be the one with a problem! I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice, same result.
i have a brand new x10 mini pro.and touch screen wont work after i use the phone for a few minutes or sometimes when it came out of standby. only thing i can do is to remove the battery.how can i fix the problem? is it a hardware problem? s something wrong with proximity sensor?
when I tap the contacts icon on the bottom of the screen, my contacts are not there, only my own name. I can search for names in messaging and everyone from my phone contacts, to my facebook friends and even Fearne cotton from twitter is there! I would like just my phone contacts visible in my phone book. I've tried to back up contacts from before the software update yesterday, and it takes ages to get through to 100% but the names are still missing.
I bought a Sony Ericcson Mini Pro in August 2010. The display screen on the phone sometimes blanks out completely and is quite erratic in nature. Only when I pull the battery cover the display screen starts on.
I have had the phone for less than a month, worked fine up til about 30 mins ago. a message came through, went i attempted to read it the phone went blank. it wont turn on or off, and battery is internal so cant even do this. there is a green light still flashing, which indicates an unread message. ive tried calling the mobile from my land line and it goes straight to voicemail. any suggestions?
But now whenever I'm taking a call the touch screen stops working, so the only way for me to hang up is to take the battery out.Has anyone else had the same problem and is their anything I can do to fix this?
I have x10 mini 2.1 since I updated to 2.1 any long press on home screen or corner icons goes directly to edit either widgets or icons depending wich screen I have up.This is anoying because many times I press just a little too long and for example end up in the edit icons mode instead of opening messages like I wanted to. Is there anyway to get this as it was on 1.6? Long press didnt open edit, the only way to open edit was trough menu key.
When I click on the touch screen to make a call and want to quickly find a name in the contacts I have to type in the name onle letter (and a few presses) at a time or open the keyboard. I can't select the 'quick text' option.
I am not able to copy the photos from mobile to my computer.I have tried reinstalling the PC Companion suite and also have updated to mobile to Android version 2.0.The folder where the photos reside in the mobile is not coming up in the Phone Card Memory,Can any one helpe to sort out this issue? Or Is there ant seetings option which I am overlooking?
I have just purchased an X10 mini pro, however there is no applications bar in the bottom of the screen. The following instructions therefore do not make sense:You can personalise the home screen by adding application shortcuts: 1) from the home screen, tap the applications bar2) press menu bar and tap add3) in the Add to home screen menu, select the item you want to add How do I add app shortcuts to the desktop? Where is the applications bar? I also cant find mediascape, where is this?
I have tried the app funninly enough called Photo Zoom but the quality is terrible and does not support the remaining features of the in current software such as taking photos in low light etc. Also can anyone tell me if the update will perhaps increase the ammount of bluetooth headsets that r compatible with the mini pro. I have 2 very good headsets at the moment from previous phones but unfortuneately my mini pro cannot find them.
