Question about Sony Ericsson Z500a

2 Answers

My pc wont recognize my sony ericsson z500a data cable

When I connect the sony ericsson z500a through a USB cable to the PC, a popup balloon comments that it was an "unknown device". in my despair too, I downloaded the mobile phone tools online, hoping that it'll also solve the problem but when the software undergoes initialization, it cannot detect the phone. I checked if there's something wrong with the cable and with the USB port, but nothing seems wrong with those.

I really hope you could help me so at least I can upload some of my files/pics and download some ringtones, wallpaper etc. in a more practical way. tnx!

There could be one of these problems.. 1. your phone is affected by a virus. 2. change your messaging memory from mass memory to phone, some times this works, but not confirmed. 3. you said you checked the cable, have you connected the cable to some other phoen and checked? probably the female pins are gone, so it doesnt detect.

    hello there!

    By using your phone as a modem, you can get Internet access via your PC. Before you can use your phone as a modem, your service provider must enable your data line. Once the data line is enabled, you must set up your PC.

    You can connect your phone to your laptop via USB cable or bluetooth. then open the PC suite for sure there will be set up for this.

    You will need the PC suite to do this.

    Set up the Data account in the Sony Ericsson K750i:

    • Go to Menu
    • Select Connectivity > press Yes
    • Select Data Communication > press Yes
    • Select Data Accounts > press Yes
    • Select Add Account > press Yes
    • Select GPRS Data > press Yes
    • Enter Name as :mnet
      • APN : mnet
      • Give User name as: mnet
      • Give Password as: mnet
    • Select Save > press Yes
    • Connect your Sony Ericsson K750i with cable.
    • If you are using the USB cable or DSS-20, then

      • Double click Phone Connection link
      • Uncheck the USB prot.
    • Click Start > Programs
    • Select Sony Ericsson > Mobile networking wizard
    • Select Create new connection > GPRS
    • Select Install Modem > Add (install the modem on the same port of the USB)
    • Select Access point name as :
    • For Primary and Secondary DNS: leave blank

      • Give User name as:
      • Give Password as:
    • To confirm select Done
    • Select Connect > Dial
    With the Sony Ericsson PC Suite software installed on your PC, you'll be able to synchronise your phone contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, notes, emails and bookmarks between your phone and your PC at any time. You can synchronise using USB cable, Bluetooth™ or Infrared (IR), depending on phone model.

    To be able to use Sony Ericsson PC Suite with your PC, there are some requirements on hard disk space and Windows version that must be met. Please see Software downloads on this site to download and for details on the requirements for your phone.

    On your phone you have to go to settings and under phone settings there should be an option to connect through USB or PC Connection option. This has to be selected before the computer will recognize the device is connected.
