You can't actually format this phone,
its a java based phone and not a symbian based.
you can however format the memory card, then Reset the phone to factory settings only.
There may be flash option, but it would only be accessible to sony service.

jus of curiousity why you want to format it.

Today my z550i broke from the folding hinge, actually i was stupid enough to joke with it, and i slipped from my had while i was on the top roof, it hit hard on floor beaking into 2, but still it was ringing and calls were accessible though no screen to view anything.
will get it repaired tomorrow.

How can i retrieve my important information from my samsung if none of the buttons work

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If you got your info in SIM card it easy to so so, by putting in some other phone and copy your Contacts or Messages.
And if your Data is in Phone memory, try to connect it with cable to your PC, it may be helpful by syncing the data to PC.
And if you still need to press some keys in doing so, and your Info is crucial enough that you can spend some money then you can contact the vendors about this issue, they can retrieve the data by connecting the memory chip through EP-ROM reader which isn't available for End-User.
I hope you have a clear picture now.

Regards, WAQAR.

MY Sony Ericsson Z550i and file transfer option

you need to get your phone checked at a sony service center or a third party repair shop(use only if out of warranty).
either your Ribbon inside the folding hinge is broken.
or you have something shorting the PCB inside the phone.

do not attempt to open it on own, you won't be able to fix it.
just my 2 cents.

My old LG cell phone (LGCU400) broke and was replaced with a newer model (LGECU515). I put my old sim card in the new phone but I cannot retrieve any of my contacts/info from the sim card. Is there...

I went to the AT&T/Cingular store and they tried hooking my broken phone to their system but could not retrieve any #s (they were saved to my phone not my SIM). They told me there was no other way to retrieve the #s and that a computer cable wouldn't work bc their system would've been able to retrieve them. I knew there had to be some way of retrieving them bc I could still turn my phone on- the top 1/2 (screen) had just broken off.
It finally dawned on me to look at my husband's phone (we had the same one), write down the buttons to press & the # of clicks per button on my old phone, in order to blindly go through my entire contacts list and save each one to my SIM card. Approximately every 25 contacts I saved I'd switch the SIM card to my new phone and make sure they were all saving correctly. I'm currently still transferring all 137 contacts- grueling but well worth it. This only works if your old phone will still turn on & function even if you can't see/use the screen.
***Make sure your phone's saving your contacts to your SIM and not your phone- I thought mine was and it was one rude awakening today when I found out otherwise! I hope this helps!
