Sony Ericsson :: P990i - Wireless LAN Functionality / Backup Device
Sep 23, 2010
P990i wireless LAN functionality. Advice please. I just had a look through the PDF manual for the P990i but couldn't find the answer, so I am hoping that someone here as the answers.
1. WiFi Ad Hoc network
I note that one can connect to Hotspots but can one connect to an Ad Hoc network, say a laptop, and if so how/what settings (or is an app needed)?
2. WiFi file browsing
I would like to be able to connect to another computer by WiFi, see the files on that computer and to be able to exchange files between the two devices by WiFi. Is this possible?
3. WiFi file transfer
If browsing is not possible I would at least like to be able to send files from and to the P990i by WiFi. Is this possible? (I note that the Send option of the inbuilt file browser has options only for Bluetooth and IR)
4. WiFi back-up device
I would be extremely happy if I could use the P990i as a backup device.
What I would like to be able to do is to set my laptop or camera to automatically send files to the P900i by WiFi and for the P990i to receive them into a folder on the external Memory Stick. Is this at all possible?
How can I move the old contact registred in P990i to vivas pro. BTW, the remot sync that provided by sony Ericsson via website not aplicable with 990i I tried many times but not working. Also, I have backup in PC sute. put how can I move it to Vivas pro?
I've a couple of proto's and one P990i with an acceptance unit-stiker. I thought that meant it's a proto, but it has no "prototype not for sale" on the sticker inside. Can anybody tell me what the difference between a proto and an acceptance unit is? Interested about what kinds of prototype builds there are too As far as I know first there are private builds, than several SP-builds and finally pre-series,
I have a W910i Sony Ericsson phone. And we have WIFI connection in my home and at my work place. Thus, we have our own wireless router. Is it possible for me to connect to our WIFI connection using my W910i? If it is possible, how will I connect to it?
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.
I have a K810i and would like to take a backup of my text SMS. I have searched for this topic in these forums and it seems that there does not seem to be a way to do so. However, after using PC Suite, I am quite confused. Limiting ourselves to PC Suite for now, here are my doubts:
1. Using PC Suite, is there any way to create a backup of my text SMS? 2. Can the backups be stored in text format so that I can just browse through them like text files? I hate to depend on PC Suite just for viewing some text. 3. Can I restore this backup in case the SMSes on my phone are lost by accident? 4. What does the PC Suite Archive do? I copied my SMSes from the phone to a new archive and they are visible even when the phone has been disconnected from the PC.
I can see that PC Suite creates a bunch of text files in random order for these archived SMS.
Just got a new Sony Ericsson Spiro. There seems to be no synchronisation software available to backup contacts to a PC. PC Suite page says the phone is not compatible. The phone also doesn't appear in the sync list on the new web sync service. There must be a way to backup the phone data. Anyone know how?

Can anyone recommend an easy way to backup my C905 file system?I have implemented so many mods, and tweaks, I would like to be able to backup the TPA and IFS folders at least so I can restore it easily later if I ever have to re-flash.

Pretty new to the forums and in need of some assistance. Recently and successfully flashed+debranded SE w705a. Made sure to backup contacts and restore them, no problems there. Backed up sms also by using the move to mem card option as well. As I moved them there I assume they are alright. Tje problem is however with the new FS and whatnot that came with the flashing, when I try to move them back onto the phone, they are not detected on the memory card. When I moved them to the mem card the phone gave some message in regards to losing them if you update software or something to that effect. I tried SE suite to see if I could grab them off the memory card but to no avail. Is there another program or something that I can use to transfer the sms back onto the phone?When I flashed I used the guide here: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1221924 -- using FS for Hong Kong also.
Why is this not happening for the Xoom? For a device of this caliber it is a no brainer, but yet it doesn't exist. Without using alternative measures is anything in the works from Motorola or Google? I'm not really interested in a manager that dictates my device like iTunes does, but more along the lines of a system image creator/restorer.
I've tried thousands of times connecting my phone to my PC but it says the one of the USB devices attached to the this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. I want to transfer photos and videos to my PC but I really don't know how.
After recently updating my W705 I cannot get the PC suite to recognize it. There seems to be a problem either with installing the drivers for the device or the device not being recognized because it "doesn't have a signature".?! It can be recognized and connects properly when in USB mode, which is strange, but it no longer has a 'phone mode' option, only a 'PC mode' option. The phone works fine by itself but I need to restore all my data to it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software many times and checked my USB ports and cable. Any other ideas for me to try?
My C905*A* Stay with Me, but, I don't know. I can De-branding C905a To C905 SW R1FA035? Don't have Any Errors? I Want Put New Driver's, Patch's and Elf Loader In my C905. But I Don't know About The Risk to De-branding The "A" to "I" Or C905 Only.
I had everything working fine on 5.0.592 for a week or more. I tried to restore some contacts from a prev backup and now all the sudden my email functionality is messed up. I have it linked to my GMAIL acct. Things I noticed since that contact backup is now when i go to delete a message, it will not prompt to delete from device only or device and inbox Also I can hit reply on some, but when I go to send, there is no send option. And lastly when I delete from my phone, it does not mark as read or delete from my inbox. i checked all the settings I can find. But nothing changed.
So, I saved up some cash, and am selling some stuff to get about 300-350 pounds budget for a new phone. I'm very tempted to get the N97 mini. It has good audio quality (gsmarena tests) pretty decent pictures, WiFi, GPS, qwerty keyboard and a nice screen. What does SE have to offer that will give me good music, photos and connectivity? WiFi is pretty important and a qwerty keyboard is a big plus. Another thing that stops me from spending so much money on a brand new SE is their lack of updates when it comes to fixing bugs and adding features.
I still see Nokia pumping out N95 firmwares that get new features and fixes. The SE phones I owned could've got new features but SE never bothered. Take smile shutter on the C510 for example, they could've and in my opinion should have also made an update to include the feature in it's bigger sister the C702. But they didn't. I don't want to spend 300 pounds on a device that will not receive updates and features after 6-12months.
