Ok, phone applications installations use a certificate to validate the software using a specified time and date.

What kind of application are you trying to install on the phone? Can you see the file extension for the install program? (e.g. jar, sis, sisx, etc)

Did you download it off the internet?

If it's an older phone application the certificate may have expired. (e.g. Install may only have been valid between 2006-2007)

What's ridiculous about this security measure is all you have to do is set the year back on your phone and the program will install onto the phone without any problems.

Moreover, you can only install programs designed for that phone, screen resolution, and operating system; make sure you're installing the right application or that it's compatible with your phone. (e.g. Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Symbian S40, Windows Mobile 6.5, etc)

Basically, it should be as easy as double clicking on the phone program to initiate the installation. Sometimes the phone can be improperly disconnected from the computer leaving a "ghost device" in the Windows Device Manager; you'll have to manually go to the device and force it to be uninstalled.

To do that:

  • If you right click on "My Computer" and select "Manage"
  • When the management window pops up there will be a link in the left control bar for the "Device Manager"
  • After selecting the Device Manager you should see an active device list.
  • If Windows is having a problem with one of the devices there will be a exclamation icon or a red X through the device (ghost device); right click on the device and choose "uninstall."
  • Reconnect your phone and try to install the program again.
  • You can also transfer the file to a memory card and use a file browser on your phone to execute the installation.

The Sony Ericsson w580i is one of Sony Ericsson's lines of Walkman-branded handsets. These music focused phones are popular globally, but few of them have made it to the United States. The W580i is one of the few that has, carried by AT&T. And it's a good pick for the carrier.
The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

You can remove the memory card of your phone. connect it to PC via card reader & save all the data present in it. But in this method you cant save data stored in your phone memory.

By mistakenely i have formatted the phone so i lost all my photos

You may try this format recovery software which helped me before. You can download trial for free

Please be noted that your phone memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Sending files over the computer to your phone?

if you have an external memory card you can try putting it in a card reader and dragging the songs to the card if not plug the cable to your phone and computer and then go to start and then my computer and your memory card for your cell should read like an thumb drive it should say something like removable disk. (don't worrie about the software for the phone you don't need it to do this) once you open the removable disk the just find your music you like and either drag and drop it in that folder or you can right click and click on send to that removable disk and there ya go. let me know if this helped you.
