Forgot unlock code voicemail kyocera jax

Go to this link...

Scroll down to page #39 to where it says Use Voicemail and follow the instructions!! As per the service tech I spoke to on the phone to find this link, following these instructions will automatically erase your old voicemail unlock code as well as any as yet unheard messages.

Just in case anyone still has difficulty in finding the instructions.....

Set Up your VoicemailBefore your phone can receive voicemail messages, you must set up a 4-10 digit passcode and record a personal voicemail greeting.When you have set up your voicemail, all unanswered calls to your phone are automatically transferred to voicemail, even if your phone is in use or turned off.1. Press and hold the 1 key.2. Follow the system prompts to create a password and record a greeting.
Check your Voicemail

When you receive a voicemail message, a
notification with a voicemail message icon
appears at the top of your screen.
• At the voicemail notification, select Call to call
your voicemail number and follow the system
prompts to retrieve the message.
Select Ignore to clear the notification without
checking messages. The notification icon
remains on top of the screen until you listen to
the message
• When only the voicemail message icon
appears on top of the screen, select
Voicemailand follow the system prompts
to retrieve the message.
Best of luck!!

Cant change message tone on my sony eririsson mini xperia

The SD card has a folder named media, there is a sub-folder called audio, and subfolder to that is another called notifications. I believe you can also create ringtones and alarm subfolders below audio as well.
In the notifications folder place your new message tone.
To select the tone, choose settings, sound & display,Notification ringtone and pick your new sound.

My phone always appearing the mail icon i the upper left corner of the screen beside the signal bar. i dont have any messages and i have enough memory. i erased all my message but it keep appearing and...

I suspect there is a message in your Messages folder, which gets system messages. You may have it hidden. This folder is a different folder than your account folder. Un-hide it, remove the message, and then hide it again.

You were saying something about removing service books. Don't do that.

How to set MP3 as text message tone on Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

If you want to set an mp3 or "Custom" tone for your "Notifications" you can dowload an app or...
Connect your X10 to your computer. Pull down the usb notification in top left of screen and mount sd card.
Then go into your phone menu via "My Computer" and either go into media/audio/notifications or create the folders yourself. Remember they must be lower case letters.
Then all you have to do is copy your tone into the "notifications" folder disconnect your phone from your pc and go into "Settings" "Sound and Display" "Notification ringtone" and it should now be in your list with the preset standard tones.

Deleting the recent text message folder

go to your menu screen and go over to the mailbox. notice the bottom right corner of your screen says the top right button and it'll take you to another screen to pick what which folder you want to erase. pick which one you want cleared out and you're done.

if there is a particular message that you don't erased, go to it and lock it. that way when you do the mass erase, the locked message will remain there.
