Sony Ericsson :: Vivaz - Changing OS Symbian S60 To Android / Any Possibility
Oct 27, 2010
I have bought Vivaz one week ago and it was such a good cell phone to have with marvelous features compared to its price and size. My pain is the OS which is Symbian S60 5th Edition which I hate more than the darkest hour. I wish if Sony Ericsson could change the OS from Symbian S60 to Android what is the possibility to such so? is it need some hardware to be change? I feel pity for my Vivaz as it works using Symbian while my brother has Xperia X10 Minipro works with Android 1.6.
Is it possible to bring my SMS from my previous mobile "Aino" onto my new "Vivaz pro"? I've already tried a lot! The backup files from the Aino PC Suite are not accepted by the PC Companion which Vivaz Pro uses. (Both dbk file extension). With the "myphoneexplorer" (a tool I found online) I at least got my SMS from my Aino onto my PC, but it wont recognize my Vivaz pro. (I've tried everything possible and searched in various forums how to fix that. Removed the battery for 2 minutes, searched for com1 instead of com3, switched baud rate to 115200. PC companion driver is installed and I tried all different mode when connecting.
Is possible SE Symbian based Smart Phone like Satio, Vivaz and Vivaz Pro change the system from Symbian^1 to Android or Symbian^3 OFFICIAL?Symbian is open source and Android also open source.And hardware requirement for all SE Symbian based Smart Phone I think no problem to use Android and Symbian^3 system.
SATIO is really the best smartphone, with powerful CPU strong GPU and style design.
But this ultimate smartphone why got so many people complain?
Because the poor system: NOKIA SYMBIAN^1
Why again, I got 2 reason here.
1. Symbian only got best performance on NOKIA own smartphone but not all other brand phone. (not just Sony Ericsson, SAMSUNG also)
*Is this Sony Ericsson and Samsung problem? No, is NOKIA did not full "OPEN" the source of Symbian.
2. Symbian make all 3rd party software fully compatible with NOKIA own smartphone but not all other brand phone. (everybody will know, the CALL RECORDING software ONLY can use on NOKIA base Symbian phone)
*Same, NOKIA did not full "OPEN" the source of Symbian.
My main point why want to change the SYMBIAN to Android is because SYMBIAN only best best 3rd party software compatible in NOKIA smartphone.
Is Android really best compatible in all 3rd party software, I just can say no the most, but it will more and more and more that NOKIA Symbian.
Why I know, because in my sister hand got one Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini. Same 600MHz CPU but X10 mini performance really nice.
Is Sony Ericsson problem, hardware problem, software problem? NO, IS NOKIA SYMBIAN PROBLEM.
That why now Sony Ericsson all phone now base on Adroid.
Everybody got MORE REASON?
1. If really SATIO or other SonyEricsson Symbian base smartphone change to Android, SonyEricsson can cut off the Timescape™ and Mediascape, I know this two feature is symbol of XPERIA X10.
2. I love the brand (SonyEricsson), I love the hardware (SATIO), I also love the system (Symbian) but the system make me disappointed (best compatible 3rd party software only in NOKIA smartphone).
My Sony Vivaz was working properly and then suddendly applications stopped working. Then I noticed the applications I had installed in the memory card are not longer displayed on the screen, and when I try to take a photo it says there is no memory card and that they will be stored in the phone's memory. Additionally, when I try to reinstall the applications I always get the message File error. What is happening to my phone? How can I fix all these problems?
Lately hardly you can see new applications for symbian. And the few new apps are not really very interesting and impressive. Everyday you can see dozens applications for IPhone or android even windows mobile but not for symbian (still less for symbian v5, a dead platform, a sandwich between 3rd and the new symbian -from what I've read and see a no very impressive interface). And now well established symbian forums and webpages opening to other platforms due to lack of interest and new applications about symbian (example:symbian planet.net now has changed to mobileitalia.net with more information about IPhone, android or n900 then symbian).
Sony Ericsson people I am waiting patiently for the upgrade to this OS, what really is the real situation, is there any possibility? If there is no more plan for you to upgrade this OS to symbian 3, I am willing to pay an extra cost for that OS so that I can maximize my phone usage, and applications we are longing to try. If there is any possibility and I do hope so, please tell us,(your avid and loyal customers) so that we can be proud once again having a good phone with good features, unlike now this brand is not gaining popularity because of OS.
Seems to me that the upgrade of the system is not an option of Sony engineering, because it asks Nokia (at the end, OS is their property).Sony-Ericsson probably think (like all big firms),that today's consumer society should be animate with new, new, new and always new gadgets.All praise to brands, that provide full support for their devices regardless of their age.Who knows, maybe some engineer from Sony-Ericsson gone astray in this forum, read something, and think that million people read this (million people - 1$ - one million dollars),million unhappy users - low support - problems to you "mister Sony-Ericsson").
Many people have purchased the satio, vivaz n vivaz pro and these phones are quite expensive phones too. what courtesy and responsibility does sony ericsson plan to show to these customers in the near future ? will there be any software updates for these 3 devices in the future or not ? because i believe there is a need to improve its touchscreen features in the phone. i need the touchscreen feature of the symbian os on these phones to be as good as the touchscreen feature of the media menu on these phones.... i m sure u know wat i mean.... plus the auto rotate feature on the satio is very slow ( takes about 1.5 seconds sometimes). is sony ericsson dumping its satio, vivaz n vivaz pro customers too along with dumping symbian? the answer and response to this question will reflect the fidelity of sony ericsson towards its customers. fidelity of of a customer towards his merchant goes the other way too u know.... i d like to see if sony ericsson does have an answer to this question.
My Vivaz Pro has frozen twice now. Pressing the touch screen or any of the buttons does nothing. I can't even switch it off. I had to remove the battery and re-insert it to get going again. Does anyone know why this happens ?
What kind of Vivaz do I have? I bought a U5i but the phone says in: Settings-Telephone-Telephone-Telephone managing-about that it is an U5 (Not the U5i). The menu names in English are my guesswork as my Vivaz is in Swedish.
Is it not possible to watch webb tv with Vivaz? The symbol for flash player appears when try to open the streams so seems the installed flash player doesn't manage. Do I have to download another flash player or is it not possible at all to view tv?
Had my vivaz a month or so now supplied by 3, it came with some demos already installed on the phone, i went to try tetris but instead of offering to let me play it i had to buy it. Anyway i bought the game from my phone and when i go to play, the bottom half of the screen is filled with a cursor interface (with up down left right buttons then A B C D along the bottom) and the top half is tetris.... when i start the game i get asked if i want sound enabled but cant see the yes or no options beacuse of the interface blocking bottom half of phone (no matter what, all i can do is continue with the sound on which is annoying!) then i get a option to play game, i press random buttons and then the game starts.... i cant move the blocks left or right and i cant see where they are landing. Can you remove the cursor interface on the vivaz? Dont want to buy anymore games unless i get this same problem.
I have had my Vivaz for several months with absolutely no problems.However it has just stuck and would not allow anything to be selected so I turned the phone off to restart and now it will not load past the white Sony Ericsson start up screen - any ideas?
Today, I got a replacement for my Vivaz because it had broken and couldn't be fixed. When I put my memory card in which I used in my old vivaz, it still says there is no music, photos or videos. Although when I have put my memory card in different phones to check it hasn't been wiped or something, my stuff comes up. Just not when my memory card is in this new phone. When I remove my memory card it says "Unsafe to remove memory card without selecting remove memory card first."Is this some kind of setting, and is this whats causing the problem?
On my phone i have unplugged my charger and the bit i plug it into has fallen out, i have been everywhere to try and fix it, even the place i bought it from and they have all said it is too hard of a job or they have told me to go on the sony ercisson and get a quote off them, but i dont know how too, where/how do i do this? how much will it cost and stuff?
I have had a Vivaz for a couple of months now, and the clock loses a few minutes every week.I have done some reading on the internet and seen that there are a few other people who have found this.Does anyone know if there is a fix for this?
"In most phones, you can store a lot of information about your contacts. Apart from the usual information such as name, phone numbers and email addresses, you can also store home addresses, birthdays and other information you find useful. When you add a birthday to a contact, you'll have the option to store the birthday in your calendar, and also to get a reminder when the birthday is coming up." I dont think i can get the birthday reminder to work. It seems like I have to download some aps.
