Sony Ericsson :: Elm - Deleting / Deactivating Web Shortcuts From Home Screen?
Sep 13, 2010
Is there a way to delete, change or deactivate the "web" short cut on the bottom right of the Elm home screen, as activated by the top right hand button i.e. the same button used to "lock" the key pad and to go "back" from most functions. I am constantly starting the web process which is really frustrating & time consuming. Also costs me 50p if don't realize & it goes on from Vodafone homepage. Took phone to shop & their suggestion was to deactivate web by changing internet & WAP settings to 'pay as you go'. This is unhelpful as means can't send picture messages which I regularly do (camera one of reasons for buying Elm!).
At the bottom of the screen, there's three shortcuts: Camera, Media Net, and Menu. I can't seem to find a way in the Settings to remove these and I haven't seen it discussed in the user guide. Is it also possible to remove the date and time from that same main screen as well?
Is there any way I can change the shortcuts on the Spiro? I always end up starting the walkman (Up) or TrackID (Down). I'm used to working with a Sony Ericsson, but e.g. down is for me always opening my contacts. This is really annoying! Ok, Track ID is a great application, but not that great to lock it to that shortcut.
i have just purchased this phone and need a bit. i know you can alter your home screen via settings, personal, themes and then standby theme to different types but i really like the orange theme. BUT on the home screen there are lots of boxes for different things, can i alter these i.e remove them. i know how to add them but don't seem to be able to remove them . hope that all makes sense.
I have Aino black with me. I don't know how to change the shortcuts which are pre defined like facebook and media. I want to change these options. But I am unable to find them. I tried many times to find them many times but only navigation keys can be changed. I want to customize my Aino and also please suggest me some software or application in which I can use on the main desktop of Aino like gadgets.
I am in the messaging application, click to update mailbox and while it is trying to update the email application crashes and closes completely. I am returned to the home screen but now the shortcut I had for my email account inbox is gone, replaced by a shortcut to the music store. I had to manually fix this several times but then I discovered that just leaving it after a while the correct icon would reappear.
Has anyone experienced this problem before? When I try adding any shortcut to the home screen, it shows a "running circle" icon on the home screen. Looks like it's loading, but it's just like that forever. This happens to all available shortcuts and most of the widgets except for Clocks and Map Apps.My phone is updated to the latest Belle.
I downloaded a theme and now I can't get the shortcuts back on my home screen that I had before. Is there a way to change them back ? How do I go back to the way it was with a picture that I had taken as my wallpaper?
i know how i should delete them, i just hold my finger on shortcut for few seconds and drag it to the recycle bin at the bottom. The problem is, even when i do that, the shortcuts stay where they were..
I have about 5 screens, with the middle one set as a home screen. I've set in google play app to put a shortcut of new apps to home screen, but it actually add them to the very left one. The same is happening when trying to create a shortcut for contact - pin to home screen and I find them all on the very left screen instead.
Double-press of home button takes me correctly to my home screen...
I have loaded some company PDF and HTML reference files to the SD card, in a folder I call StationGuides. I have created shortcuts to them in the same folder as the PDF file and the index.html. I cannot figure out how to drag or copy those shortcuts to the Home screen for quicker access.
Just updated to Belle this morning & having a problem installing widgets/shortcuts to the home-screen. It worked at 1st but now it stalls & the little circle just keeps spinning forever & does not do anything.
Anyone else experience the shortcuts to apps that are on the SD card not reappearing on the home screen(s) after disconnecting from USB? Or does anyone have any solutions? I seem to remember them coming back most of the time (they would just have placeholders) before the Android 2.3. update.
My 5530XM is acting up again (v.11 firmware). The symptoms are random disconnects from WLAN and, after doing a soft reset, unable to put shortcuts on the home screen (using the Shortcuts theme). I really think the problem is with the memory card because I can't turn the phone on with the card inside.
Is there a way to scan/repair problems with the memory card? I really, really want to avoid a hard reset. Last time I did that, I lost all my apps from the memory card (I have the Games Edition). I can try using PC Suite or Ovi Suite to back up my memory card apps, but I don't trust the suites that much. What I'd like to do is drag and drop my memory card apps to another location in my PC, but I cannot see the memory card apps in Windows Explorer.
I bought a Nokia 5230 in Jan this year. There was no issue for the first few days... Then suddenly it started restarting . Radomly. First when I enabled bluetooth. Then later on it would restart when I changed a setting like Home Screen Shortcuts or Personalised the General Profile ... etc. I am using a SanDisk MicroSD 4 GB card brand new clean formatted. I have only put in music from NokiaMusic and OVI store apps. It has nothing to do with software installed. There is some really wierd problem.
..So , I went to the Nokia Care store countless times, and they re-installed and updated the phone software and gave it to me.. still the same problem.. SO then they sent it to the Delhi Head Office and I got a replacement 5230 !!! And guess what still the same problem !!! Random restarts. I feel there is some issue with the phone software or firmware or there is some issue with the phone accessing its memory card , I dont know. I have the latest firmware update for this phone V12.0.089
I bought a SonyEricsson C510 phone yesterday and found many applications and games which are not necessary for me at all, i even can't delete any of them. Plz if any1 know how to delete them let me know, will be a great help!
I keep getting 'Out of range' from my aino while trying to connect to my home wifi (2wire 2701HGV-E). Need help on how to solve this! Also my phone is not detected during the update service via usb-to-computer. It is stuck at the 'connect' page and doesn't move onto 'confirm'.
I recently ordered a w995 from overseas, and for some reason I am unable to change the default page on the web browser. Although I tried changing the setting in Internet Services -> Options -> Advanced -> Connectivity -> Default homepage, the browser seems to ignore the page I provide. Is there any way that I can override this behaviour?
I've been trying to get my phone to connect to my existing home Internet connection, which is wireless. I gave this thought because my husband's IPhone connects to our home network so easily. How do I get my C901 to do this? Or is it not possible?
When I tried to set up the My Presence section within the phone I entered in my username, password and then it asked me for server information so I entered in what I thought was the right info, but now it keeps giving me a network error failure message.
In case you didn't know, Facetime has its own URL, which means that it can be launched from the Home Page, a website, or an email.If you have access to the iPhone Configuration Utility, you can quickly build your own shortcuts (aka Web Clips) and apply them.
Hope that helps instead of going through Contacts > your contact > FaceTime or going to Phone > Recent > etc.
I'm trying to download a new software update for my W760a, because it tells me it cannot add anymore contacts and I can't recieve or send texts/ phone calls. When I try to go to the software updates on the W760a hompepage, it loads a blank page. It just says on the tab "Sony Ericsson Support Phones Topic Updateserviceapplication W760a", and loads a blank page. Please help me with this problem as I wish to continue using my new phone.
