I have bought Nokia E63 mobile. I have saved all the contacts from my sim card to my mobile, but while receiving the incoming calls the names are not displayed in the mobile and only the mobile numbers are...


The problem here would be duplicate contacts. When a call comes it searches the number in the Phone and SIM and displays the name pointing to that. Here in your case I suppose the same contact with the same number would be entered twice ( SIM + Phone) and phone gets confused which name to display and it shows just the number instead of name.
To solve this what you can try is to disable the SIM contacts from displaying. To do that go to Menu>Contacts>Options>Settings>Contacts> Contacts to display - Select Phone Memory only.
Hope this helps. Good Luck. ~SmokinJoe~

Sadly the red light is a Fatal error light,
Your phone will need to go to a repair to be fixed by Sony as it could a any number of small thing from faulty board to corruption.

Sony Ericsson K850i not switching on


Try reading K850i Firmware Overview.. There are some issues with firmware. Such as random reboots and BROD (Blue Ring of Death) i was recently victimized by this BROD. 037 firmware is the most stable firmware so far.. i would advise you also to downgrade your firmware first until SE releases a new and more stable firmware..

Nothing on the display just a dull orange light.


Why don't you try the SE Website? They will give a program called Updater, or something like it. You will hook up the phone to the computer and it will tell you which OS you have in the phone, if it's already update, it will prompt you if you want to run the update for your phone, just click yes and it should be restore by then.

Display ME temporary error when k850i switched on


First of all, try cleaning the SIM contacts and using a different SIM - one cause of that message is excessive retries when reading the SIM data.

If it's not that, then try doing a firmware update on the phone - the easiest way of doing this is to use the SE update service - you just need the standard USB cable (DCU-60) that comes with the phone - but note that doing this will erase all the information you have on your phone, so back it up first.

The update service applicaiton can be downloaded here:
