Sony Ericsson :: W810i - K550i - Signal - Service Bars
Mar 26, 2008
I was having problems getting signal in my new house so i installed the wi-ex 510 dual band cel booster. It seems to be working fine BUT my phone W810i and my wife's, K550i (both on AT&T) will jump from full service to no bars while standing still. AT&T customer service said that i'm in an area with modertae coverage (not ideal).
I dont know whats wrong. I've updated it to the latest SE firmware and i use sony m600i, i get full 5 bars while my w580i only gets barely 1bar at times. What can be wrong with it? and what can i do to fix it?
I need to install the Nordic languages (EU_4, sometimes called Nordic1/Nordic2) onto my W810i, which is Cingular branded and is primarily used in the US. I looked at Wotanserver.com and you can do it there for a certain price. My question is, if I do flash my phone with new EU_4 firmware, will this make my phone inoperable here in the US.? I know that to get replace the branded firmware with the European firmware and to switch languages, a new CDA must be used. But will doing this cause any interruption of service or features on the Cingular service?
I've got a Iphone 3G that's locked to fido, has OS 3.1.2 and what happens is after my phone gets a signal my phone goes from "Fido 3G", to lower bars then to just "Fido" then to "searching" and then to "no service", when its at Fido 3G I can test it and it can call but anything lower than that the call fails, then it randomly goes back to Fido then back to no service again. I'm wondering if it's a glitch or something? I've tried restoring, disabling 3g, reset network settings, reset all settings. My bro's 3GS and my 2G have no problems calling in this location so I don't think that's the problem.
I am using W810 for past 4 years.Now I am trying to use the call barring service, but I'm not able to do so as I'm getting error "PASSWORD ERROR".Even i tried to use several passwords, still no go.any body facing the same problem.or any body have the solution for this.Also my camera is not working as nothing happens when press the camera button.
I have a w810i that was previously R4DB005. I haven't been to the cell phone modding scene for quite awhile. I wanted to back-up my contacts so I googled up My Phone Explorer, but MPE did not work and told me to update my USB drivers. I googled up that using Sony Ericsson update service would update my USB drivers. So I deleted the program and launched it and I only wanted to update my USB drivers.
But then it began updating my firmware also so I just left it on overnight. I wake up in the morning and Sony update service is at the main screen so I assume that all is well and the update is complete but now my w810 won't turn on. I tried plugging in the charger and it still won't turn on. Is there anyway to save my phone? If it matters I do have old backups of my FS.
I just purchased a SE W810i some days ago, I'm living in Peru, and I bought a SIM card from Peru, and it works perfectly, and I would like to know how to:
1. Change or remove the network service logo : MOVISTAR. 2. Change the color of the characters of the phone without changing the theme. 3. How can I delete the games I don't want //except the free ones 4. How can I change the language of my phone, to Spanish, it only has English, and Chinese, it also has a option that says according to SIM card, but it won't turn to Spanish, it just stays in English. 5. Can I go in other cellphone via bluetooth with SE W810i
I have the Verizon 9530 and every now and then, just off the top center of the screen to the right, a little "E" will pop up with the signal/service bars in front of it. This literally pops up for like a second or 2 and disappears. I'm thinking this may be EDGE but on Verizon, I thought the EDGE is the 1XEV. Anyone know what this is?
I dont know what to buy, the K550i or V640i. K550i - £40 with £10 credit. V640i - £50.If i did get the K550i, i would flash it to W610i.I need music in a phone, a good camera. And sleek looks.Which phone do you this is better?if you have any other deals/offers you think are better, please post!
My k550i turns off on it's own and when I try to turn it back on, nothing happens except the red light on the infrared flashes. I am positive it is not the battery. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it? I just got this phone about 4 months ago and have never dropped it.
Just got my K550i and really happy with it except it does not have the option for a standby clock! I saw on wotan server that you can update the firmware and convert the K550i to W610i. Would that be a good idea? Does the W610i have a standby clock opttion.
I am using K550i cybershot phone since 2 years now with the firmware R8BC004,I just wants to know that which firmware is best for taking photos, i have so many firmwares but can't decide , which firmware gives best result in image processing.If any my friend knows please help to decide about best firmware
Recently my phone (K550i) somehow lost its Internet profiles. Well I thought no biggie I'll just goto SE.com and have them send me new settings, well I am still waiting to receive them. I am on Tmobile and I never receive the settings from SE or Tmo's page. I try putting my number as area number, 1 area number but neither works. I try to put in the settings manually but in my settings page on phone there is only a sport to put APN and username/password, no IP's or anything.
Anyone else experience this? I did th sotware upgrade and a few hours later this happened. I tried manually connecting to the network and it wont. T-mobile asked me to send the phone back but there is a major scratch on the screen so they told me my return warranty was void now.So far I have a $400 paper weight. Anyone fix this issue?
I was wondering if anyone knows what algorithm is used for the signal bars on the Photon 4G. I have found that there seems to be no correlation between the signal strength (in dBm / asu) in Settings -> About phone -> Status and the signal bars that are shown. Often the signal bars will shoot from 1 to 5 or 6 even with really low signal ( ~97 to > 100 dBm) that doesn't fluctuate.
It's still good and I cannot use it now I have moved to New Zealand from the UK, because it is locked to Orange - who can afford Orange roaming NZ to UK! I cannot afford a new phone either, anyway I like this one. I have heard all about unlocking procedures and they sound a bit scary. What do I do?
I have had my k500i for about three years and I like it more than any other phone that I have played with. One thing that I found frustrating, though, was the lack of a "pause" function on the video player. I am posting this information in case it is useful to other k550i users. I used to play videos by going to File Manager --> Videos --> Select Video and was frustrated by the lack of a pause function on the player. If my viewing was interrupted I had to miss some of the programmer or start over. Just today (three years after getting the phone!) I read the manual closely and it looked like there was SUPPOSED to be a pause function. Indeed there is! If you select Entertainment --> Video Player --> Select Video to play a video (instead of the route mentioned above) then the Pause Button (on the left side of the screen) works as it is supposed to. There is a bug in the software that the pause button is not enabled when playing videos via the other route. I hoe this post helps SOMEONE out there.! Let me know if it did.
I'm facing a serious problem with my K550i camera. A couple of weeks ago, it stopped working. Every time I started it, I got a message "Another application is running...". I've searched and found many people with same problem, but no solution. Then, I've made a master reset and after that the camera starts and shows its menu, but the screen gets black and the phone stops responding. After a few seconds, it finishes the camera application and goes back to standby. So, I took it to a service center, they said hardware is OK and needs a software update. I decided then to reflash it by myself. It was R1KG001 CID51, I updated it with SEUS to R6BC002 CID52 and later I reflashed it one more time with R6BC002 CID52 using SetoolsLite, but the problem persists. Tried also 2 different camera drivers (2.3 that came with the phone and 2.2), but no luck.
