    Default .:[Sony Ericsson F.A.Q]:. READ THIS BEFORE ASKING!

    I think this thread will be useful for people who recently bought Sony Ericsson phones, and (perhaps) having problems / questions regarding their phones...
    so instead of asking the same questions again and again, u can try to find the answers here first. If u somehow can't find it here, then feel free to post ur question.

    the questions and answers are in no particular order...
    so please do a search (press ctrl + F)...!
    i'll try to update this thread with more questions and answers...
    if u think u can help me update this thread, feel free to PM me...

    ? How to check the firmware version on SE phones?
    > * < < * < *
    > means press the joystick to the right
    < means press the joystick to the left
    * means press the * button (bottom left)

    press the sequence in standby screen.
    just ignore whatever shows up on ur screen, keep on pressing the sequence...
    a hidden menu will shows up, select service info, then software info...
    u'll see some lines of text...
    the first line is the firmware version...

    PS: this works for non P-series phones!
    ? After pressing the sequence above, i can see Service Tests menu shows up on my screen... What is this for?
    it can be used to help u diagnose ur phone's system...
    specially hardware (eg. keypad, LCD screen, loudspeaker, etc.)
    ? Can I update my phone's firmware to the latest version, by myself?
    yes, u need to download SEUS from h**p://, install and run it, it will guide u through the whole process step by step.
    make sure u backup all ur data before updating ur phone!
    ? So how can i backup my data (contacts, sms, pictures, ringtones, etc) easily?
    u can try My Phone Explorer. Get it at h**p:// it's free...
    ? What is SEUS? What is SESC?
    SEUS stands for Sony Ericsson Update Service. it's the official program that SE released so their power user can update their phones on their own via internet.

    SESC stands for Sony Ericsson Service Center. it's a place where u can ask for their help when u have troubles with ur SE phone.
    ? I want apps / games for my SE phone. Where can i get them?
    search here
    ? How about the themes? Where can i get them?
    Get them here...
    ? How can i upload the apps/games i downloaded from iPmart forum to my phone?
    try Baronic's tutorial here
    ? I purchased some games from internet, and they're already installed in my phone, can i make backups of them? (in case i deleted unintentionally)
    if ur phone is k750i (old ones) or w800i, then u can try ibor's tutorial here
    ? I have a k750i, i heard that it can be flashed to w800i, is that right? if yes, how?
    yes, u can find the tutorial here.
    remember! do it at ur own risk!
    ? My phone's SMS capacity is too small... can i max out the capacity?
    yes, but not all types can do this. Check the tutorial here.
    remember! do it at ur own risk!
    ? I need antivirus app for my SE phone (non P series). Where can i get it?
    it doesn't exists... coz SE phones (non P series) doesn't use third party OS like Symbians, or Linux.
    ? My k750i/w800i can only record video for 10seconds, is there any application that allows me to record more than 10 seconds?
    go to video recording mode, press Settings>Video>Shoot mode>High Quality video.
    Now u can record to the last byte of ur memory. No other application needed, and there is none exists...!
    ? Can k750i/w800i plays mp4 video? i tried it and got only sounds with black screen... did i do something wrong?
    yes, k750i/w800i and newer models can play mp4 videos...
    here's the requirements for encoding mp4 videos so it can be played smooth in ur phone...
    video resolution : max 176x144
    Frame Per Second (FPS) : 15
    video bitrate : 200 - 250kbps
    audio bitrate : 32 - 64kbps

    softwares to encode :
    - Nero Recode 2
    - SUPER from eRightSoft
    - Direct MPEG4 Maker
    - many more...

    PS: don't ask where to get these converter/encoder apps... do a search in forum, and u'll get a bunch of these apps...
    ? I need flash files, but where can I get them?
    Just go to this thread: and if ur flash files aren't there, you should try what thecoolsha said here
