Hi,

Upgrade software, scan virus, clean the board either from SE Servicing Centre or any skilled mechanic.

Thanks

It sounds like you have moisture in your switches. Sony Ericssons are bad for that because the button sequence required to go to messaging, create, send, select contact, send message are usually the same button.

Go to youtube and look up a video on how to disassemble the handset. Once you have the handset apart, the switch sheet will peal off of the main board. I would just about guarantee that you have some minor corrosion under those switches. Give the motherboard a bath in 91% rubbing alcohol with a toothbrush, use an eraser to remove the corrosion from the switch surface of the Mother Board, and with a small screwdriver, you can lightly scratch away any corrosion on the underside of the switches themselves.

If you are not comfortable taking on the task of taking your phone completely apart, visit www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com.

This is my repair center and we deal with these kinds of things all the time. You can download and print off the mail in form for free and send your phone to my shop and we will take care of it for you.

When I am writing a text message the phone starts predicting words. I just want to send a simple email without any ''help''


Hi!

If you are seeing the T9 icon on your screen, this is the T9 Text input feature of your phone. It act's like a built-in dictionary for commonly used in a sentence.

To disable this, while on writing mode, press and hold * key to disable text input.

How do I set K850i to receive picture messages?


You need to contact your Service Providers, call them and tell them your Brand Name and Model, they will in return send you a Push Message, with the relevent settings for MMS/WAP, save it, Restart your Cell, and your are done.

SONY ERICSSON K850I


As sms is text only, people will get text messages only. To convert the smiley-characters into smiley images, the receiver should have support for emoticons, or have a 3rd party program to translate the emoticons. As most phones consider SMS as text messages, they won't convert them to emoticons...

You could try sending a message to yourself, or someone else with a k850i...Just to try.

Sony Ericsson D750i SIM card transfer


From the main menu, Choose contacts
Select options and Press Advanced
Choose "Copy to SIM".
Select one of the options that pop up.
All the existing SIM card data is replaced when copying the contacts from the Phone to the SIM card.

Pictures and text message can't be saved to sim-card.
You need to transfer these with memory card or to computer and from computer to other phone.

Succes
