Q. I can send MMS messages, but I can't actually receive them. When someone sends a picture to me, I don't see the actual picture. but a link to a page on my network provider's web site instead. I've double checked the MMS settings and they seem to be correct.
Q. After months of faultless service, my Sony Ericsson P800 has started failing me. Incoming calls now sound the wrong ring tune (a custom WAV file of mine) and sometimes I can’t hear the caller and they can’t hear me. Everything’s set correctly in ‘Control panel’, so I’m at a loss. Do I need to send it in for repair?
Q. I often use the keylock feature of the P900 but that option seems to be missing, both in flip closed mode and also in flip open mode, where the ‘Battery | Lock screen’ option is greyed out. I’ve tried restarting the P900, to no avail. What’s going on?
Q. I switch my P900 to ‘Flight’ mode overnight, in an attempt to try and prolong my battery life. I’m often travelling and away from an easy way of recharging and I’m regularly mystified by the way the P900’s battery gets sucked dry even when I’m not using it.
Q. My P910i has frozen on me. After inputting my PIN, the device freezes while still showing the startup screen. I've tried resetting, obviously, to no avail. The only thing of note was that I'd installed half a dozen shareware utilities a couple of days before.
Q. How can I find out whether there's a newer version of the operating system for my Sony Ericsson P900? I know it supports user updating but I can't see a list of versions anywhere on the web.
Q. I’m always struggling to find and launch applications on my Sony Ericsson smartphone, the simple act of navigating between them seems to take an eternity. What do others do to speed things up?
Q. I've had a message saying that my P800 is running low on memory. When I checked in the Storage Manager, just 0.8MB was available. My messages used the most space (4.4MB), even after I deleted everything in my Inbox, Outbox, Draft and Sent folders. How can I reclaim this space?
Q. How can I open local HTML files, i.e. pages stored on the smartphone rather than on the Internet, complete with their images and links?
Q. I work on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays only. Is there a way to get my Sony Ericsson smartphone to wake me up only on those days and not on Thursdays or Fridays? I have my alarm set to ‘Workdays’ at the moment.
Q. I’ve bought a Motorola A925 smartphone, which seems to run Symbian UIQ in pretty much the same way as the Sony Ericsson P900, so I’m hoping you can help me. Some of the programs I want to try out simply won’t install. Do I need to ask every single developer for an A925-compatible version?
Q. I've been using a P910i for the last three months, but I'm having trouble registering applications. For starters, the IMEI reported by most (but not all) applications (starting with "14") is different from that printed on the phone itself (starting with "35"). Then, when I try and sort the problem out by resetting the unit, the reported IMEI changes and I have to request new registration codes for all my third party programs. What's going on?
