Sony Ericsson :: W890i Invalid Sim Message

Aug 16, 2010

I recently bought a w890i locked to the Three network, and unlocked/debranded it using Omnius. I've done this before lots of times, so I know I didn't make a mistake. I have all the right drivers installed and I followed the instructions to the letter.However, when I finished, I noticed that I was getting an "invalid Sim" message. I tried unlocking it again but it didn't help - it said it was already unlocked. I checked the lock status using left,left and sure enough, it is unlocked. So just to rule out a problem with the sim, I tried a few different sims that I had lying around. The Three sim that came with the phone didn't work, and neither did the O2 or Vodafone sims that I tried. but an old Virgin Mobile sim worked perfectly. So what's the problem and how do I fix it. It's possible the problem was already there before I unlocked/debranded the phone but I never checked since I'm not on the Three network.I thought it might be a problem with the CDFS. I backed-up the TA and CDFS from another w890i as a precaution (like I say, this isn't my first time) but I never backed this one up beforehand believing that I could just use the TA and CDFS extracted from the earlier phone. However, now I've read that the CDFS is unique to each phone, so I'm wondering what I should do. What will happen if I try to restore the TA/CDFS from another phone? To be honest, I don't really understand anything about them.I've tried re-flashing the firmware, too. It didn't help. And there's nothing wrong with the firmware - I've used it before. I know I could get the original firmware back by uploading the old CDA and connecting to the SEUS, but would that really help at all?I'm a bit of a novice, in way over my head here.

Sony Ericsson :: W890i / Unable To Save Photographs

Sep 20, 2010

MY w890i camera stopped functioning normally in June. I didn't really need a camera so I just assumed I had goofed something up & didn't pay much attention to it. Now my real camera is in the repair shop & I set about figuring out what I goofed with my camera phone and can find nothing. I have it set to save to memory card. there's a 2GB card in there that has very little space used on it (less than 500mb) but when I open the camera function and take a picture it does one of two things: a) makes the shutter noise indicating a picture was taken, then the screen turns gray,the word "saving" appears in the middle and then the screen goes back to the ability to take a picture or b) i hear the shutter noise indicating a picture was taken & then the screen goes back to the menu. When the camera was working properly i would hear the shutter noise, get a gray screen with the word "saving" in the middle and then the picture would display on the screen until i pressed a button. Anyway, I hooked it up to the computer & it downloaded an upgrade, that didn't help, I re-set factory defaults, that didn't help, and finally I plugged the phone into the SE PC Suite & ran "phone repair" that too did not help. I haven't seen any similar complaints on any of the forums I've checked so I'd like to get some advice on what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sony Ericsson :: One New Message Message Disappeared

Sep 30, 2010

Recently, my Vivaz got a little flurry of SMS messages and once i'd opened them all the small grey envelope in the top left remained. I turned my vivaz off and on again (as any true techno wizard does) and the envelope vanished. However it has no gone COMPLETELY. When I get a text, my phone doesn't vibrate, make a noise (and no it's not on silent etc) I don't get a message which says "1 new message" and no envelope appears. After a while the lights come on and the screen goes dark grey, as if it's about to do something, but can't quite make it. The only way I can see if I have a message is to have my inbox open all the time, and when I tap my phone the message "appears" in my inbox. I also get the red wavy lines appear in the messaging window. Any ideas how I can make my little envelope come back? Or make the phone make a noise again? I've checked all the sound and messaging settings, and have downloaded and updates the software.

Sony Ericsson :: Vivaz - No New Message Notifications Anymore

Nov 9, 2010

I am having a lot of trouble with my Vivaz. A couple of days ago I was in the middle of texting and I thought it was kind of odd that I had to wait a long time for a reply, so I checked my phone inbox and I had a new message but my phone did not alert me in any way. The envelope new message symbol didn't even show up at the top of the screen. The problem has now got worse and it has permanently been like this the past day. My message tone wont go off when I get a new message, "new message" doesn't pop up, and the symbol at the top doesn't pop up either. Because I now have a constant obsession with checking my phone every 5 seconds since it doesn't alert me anymore.

Sony Ericsson :: Vivaz - All Message Alerts Gone (No Sound / Vibration And Icon)

Nov 12, 2010

My Vivaz no longer alerts me when I get a text, there is no sound or vibration, it is not on silent mode and I've checked in my message settings the volume and that a sound is supposed to play when a text arrives. The envelope that used to show at the top of the screen when I received a text no longer appears either. The only way to know if I've got a new message is to go into my inbox where it appears; the side of the phone will then flash but still no sound. I ran a software update, then a reset and software update, but neither have made any difference. Also am I able to transfer my existing texts to the memory card so I don't lose them if I have to get it all wiped?
