My phone (K800i) has displayed no network coverage for almost a month now, I have tried network search auto and manual, and I have tried my SIM in other phones and it works fine. Does anyone have any suggestions because I am fed up of this phone I am having to use while I try and fix my own.
I will try explain my problem and what i`ve done as clear as possible.I bought w995 on orange from ebay and i thought that unlockingdebranding will be a piece of cake.I was wrong, So, after frrustrating news that A2 phones can be unlocked only by a paid service i ordered one myself. Finally i got it unlocked, but still on Orange firmware. Shoved my o2 sim in it and everything was working fine. Next step that i took - debranding. Got A2uploader,FS+main+custom pack from c905 and started to flash it. After flash was successful I turned it on and was kinda amazed - "no network coverage" was written on my screen. Tried different SIMs- same problem.So, now i`m stucked with this pointless brick aka phone. Some info about recent solutions given: -It`s not in flight mode. -Master reset didn`t help. -Tried various FS+main+custom packs -Tried D-ultimate unlocker (Direct Unlock(+Sec. zone rebuild))
i flash my w610 with a k550 to w610 flash and no it not picking up service the imei doest macth the phone that the problem can somebody help mi repair my gdfs i read and that the problem and he only problem i have is that i didn't make a back up
When my K790 can't turn on than only show white background, I bring it to shopkeeper and they flash K800i'firmware to my K790. I thought, thats why my K790 no network coverage now. It was 1 years ago n until now my K790 still 'sick'. If you know how to make my K790'network back, please send me tutorial.
I bought a used, not branded SE c905 (bought in Europe) on eBay, popped in my AT&T SIM and the display changed from "AT&T" (recognized network) to 'emergency calls only' to 'no network coverage', to 'no access to network' to 'inactive SIM'. It switches back and forth between these states, and AT&T, when I called them, said that it's the phone (locked on another network), not the SIM.
The SE phone was previously used in Canada and was used on both Fido and Rogers networks without problems, I am told. To test things out I: - Put the AT&T SIM in my old phone and it works perfectly, (my old phone is an AT&T Nokia that I had unlocked). - Put the AT&T SIM in a friend's phone (also unlocked) and it works fine - Put a friend's T-Mobile SIM in the SE and it worked (although it showed no bars, but displayed the T-Mobile network) and made calls just fine. There are no AT&T settings in the phone - but I should still be able to make and receive calls, and send and receive SMS - but that's not the case.
I have a Sony Ericsson W890i network free and on vodafone (UK). Tonight I was transferring my SMS files from the internal memory to the card memory. It was pretty slow - but there was quite a few SMS in the phone. I've had the quite common problem of the phone switching itself off, displaying the red light and rebooting. Anyway, phone did this mid transfer and now it just registers 'No Network Coverage'. I tried scanning manually for all networks and it finds nothing.
My messages have been lost and the phonebook part of the menu will not access anymore - it just hangs. I've tried my SIM in another phone and its fine. Its as if the phone part of the phone has been damaged. I presume this is a software problem. The other non phone parts of the phone - camera, walkman etc function as normal. Can anyone offer any advice. Is it worth trying a total software flash, and how would I do that? Or is it screwed?
I have a Sony Ericsson K800i and until two days ago it was working just fine. But then it displayed the "No access to network." message and I couldn't make or receive any calls. I tried to restart the phone, to take off the battery, to reset the settings, to set a network manually etc etc but still nothing.
And while it is searching for a network, it is draining the battery too. It was fully charged this morning, and now it's only 25%. Normally, it should take 3-4 days to reach that power level. I should mention now that I'm in roaming in Munich, Germany since three weeks, and my phone bills are payed on time, so it shouldn't be an mobile operator problem.
My phone was working properly. Then it went to a screen with the following message: "Configuration error. Please contact your network or service provider". The phone can receive incoming calls, but that is it. I have tried the update service. Result - Your phone has the latest software update.
Using the SE PC Suite, and connecting by using the USB cable, a list of folders is displayed which are empty. Using the "Phone Repair" from the SE PC Suite, and after following the instructions, the only result is - "Update Failed". Please can someone assist me in sorting out this problem?
I have a C510 R1HA035. Since the last firmware update I have been experiencing a reduction in coverage i.e.the signal strength has reduced a lot. Also I found another bug.In the stand-by the alarm time with the symbol is shown on the bottom left.However,after calls,the call time is shown on bottom left and the alarm time goes above the date, and the logo overlaps the time.
My K800i turns itself off every (est.) 10 seconds after I turn it on. I tried taking the mem.card off & changing the batt but it didn't solve the prob.I used the master reset(all setting) but it wasn't successful because at the midst of the procedure, it turned off.Now whenever I turn it on, it only says "please wait" (probably because of the reset I did) but it would not continue even if I wait for a couple of hours.I tried updating it with Update Service but it failed. I tried several times and same things happened.
Does anyone know why the icons on my K800i are different to those on my mates K800i? Mine are boring and dull and his are full of colour and flash. Is it possible to update them? I have tried the SE update site but no joy.
I asked this on another thread earlier but thought maybe it was in the wrond place so decided to start my own topic.My 3 nokia phone broke so i bought a mates Sony K800i as i wasnt due for a new phone yet and had lots of time left on my 3 contract. The K800i works good apart from i cant find out how to connect to the Planet3 function. I find Planet3 usefull for the free browsing anfd checking my usage and stuff so would like to get it on the k800i of possible?The K800i is unlocked but wasnt a 3 mobile phone origianally if that makes a differance. I tried to find some info on this and it seems that maybe new firmware is needed? Anyone willing to give me a simpletons guide to sorting this problem out?
I have a k800i - branded to UK operator Three and I need it to accept my vodafone contract sim as my contract phone died!I've been searching and searching trying to find out how to de-brand the phone so that I can use any sim in it but I'm really, really confused as to how I need to do it, can someone explain it to me in english? I've seen this post on this site here: http://www.expansys.com/ft.aspx?k=98987 And it's asking me to download firmware, FS firmware, XS++ V2.0 and flash drivers. I have no idea what they are or where to get them from. Can anyone help, please? I'm desperate for a phone!
I have this major problem. I have a virus on my phone. Its not causing any problems with my phone, but with my pc. The virus copies itself to anything that has memory.
I use my phone as a modem to connect to the internet. So even if I remove the virus from my pc, the virus copies itself from the phone to the hard drive as soon as I want to connect to the net. I tried to format my M2 card and master reset my phone, the virus doesn't seem to disappear.
The only thing I can think of now is reflash, but I don't know. Plus here aren't any Sony Ericsson dealers that can do it for me. So I was hoping that one of you guys can explain it to me if that possible.

1. What I need to do before I start modding my phone software to make sure not to demage my phone permanently, is there a backup of the software that uses my phone, or something?
2. I tried to replace turkish lng and t9 file with my native language (serbian) from Tripov language pack, using JDFlasher. The phone language works perfectly, but writing not. When I enter the writing dialog box, screen turns to white and phone restarts. After that I copied tr.lng and tr.t9 from Tripov to phone, and the situation stayed the same. After doing master reset, turkish disappeared from the writing languages menu. I don't care about turkish language I lost. I never use it. I want to ask how to install serbian t9 to my phone, without damaging it, and make it works?
3. How to ridd off Sony Ericsson links from the file manager and preinstalled java apps, pics, etc.
4. Is it safe to remove shutdown video, and how to do that?
5. I heard a lot about modded acustic and camera dravers, but I know nothing in particular. I'm looking for camera mod that gives the clear pictures. I mean the mod rises overall picture quality, NOT the one which will heavy postprocess the picture (e.g. Like in Nokia N73). I am skilled enough to do it myself. I don't care about rising the video quality, I almost never use video. And I'm also looking for the acustic mod that rises overall sound quality (not volume), if there's any. Well every suggestion about the modded drivers is welcome.
6. Is it possible to replace the bookmarks list, that appears after clickig the right soft key with contacts list or with the java apps list? Also, is it possible to make another tabed menu that will appear by clicking left soft key, homepage is useless to me.
7. Is it possible to disable animations in user interface. I really hate it.
8. Is it possible to replace the music player with the some from the any W phone?

The original housing is messed up badly so i got a few questions to ask about cnn.cn. Are their housings from the original manufacture? And has anyone dealth with this site before?
