If we download theams more than 10-20 then can it be harmfull fro nokia e63

If your phone does not have proper phone security it is possible that every time you are downloading themes - especially free downloads- it can install malwares and virus into the phone and so hangs up the software.If the software is already corrupt then the phone has to be reinstalled.

I need an unlocking code for my Sony Ericsson Xperia E15i

How to use the Unlock Code (This will be emailed along with your codes)

How to enter the Unlocking Code for a Sony Ericsson Model phone General Information about your Sony Ericsson unlock code
When you receive your email with your unique Sony Ericsson unlocking codes, you may see there's actually more than one code, as some models require more than one code to unlock them fully. However, for simplicity, we do aim to send you a single unlock code, which will be your network unlock code (known as the NCK).

(See below for more details about code formats and more - Please read all before you start unlocking?)

Option 1 - Sony Ericsson Models
1. Turn on the phone without SIM Card in it
2. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
3. Press the * (Star) button twice
4. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
5. The phone will display one of either messages saying 'Personalize with MNC2' or 'Personalize with MNC3'
6. Wait approximately 5 seconds.
7. The phone will display 'Network' and a picture of a closed padlock.
8. Press Select.
9. The phone will display 'Unlock (Net) 5' and 'NCK:'
10. You can now enter the Unlock Code provided.

Option 2 - Sony Ericsson Models
1. Turn on the phone without SIM Card in it
2. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
3. Press the * (Star) button twice
4. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
5. The phone will display the message 'Personalize with MNC2'
6. You can now enter the Unlock Code provided.

Note for options 1 & 2
- When doing the first 5 steps above you'll need to do it quite quickly. - If your phone has a joystick 'JOGDIAL' you must press the 'down arrow' instead of the 'left arrow' in steps 2 to 3 above. By 'Down Arrow' we mean move the joystick down

Quick Glossary
NCK = Network lock
SPCK = Service provider corporate lock
SPK = Service provider lock

Code formats you may receive for Sony Ericsson models:
Wherever possible we'll try and send you just a single unlocking code to unlock your Sony Ericsson.
However for certain models we may need to send you more than one code, even if you don't use them all.

It would be a sting of codes as per this example:

CCK: 0984118391686835 or 0984118391686835
ESCK: 0000000000000000 or 0000000000000000
NCK: 4176979876474847 or 4176979876474847
NSCK: 3908320398047435 or 3908320398047435
PCK: 2061751224321908 or 2061751224321908
SPCK: 9960493992337231 or 9960493992337231

Note: The NCK (Network unlocking code) is the main and usually the only one you'll need.

Please note:
- If you see the message 'NCK: (0)' or 'Not Allowed', this means the phone is hard-locked. The phone cannot be unlocked because there has been more than 5 wrong unlock attempts.
- If your Sony Ericsson has a Joystick, then you must press the DOWN Arrow instead of the LEFT Arrow. DOWN Arrow meaning Joystick downwards

Joystick problem

The joystick tends to be a bit of a problem on the K series. It's not so much the build quality - it is extremely strong and durable.

The main weakness of the joystick is the poor shielding from dead skin etc that falls into the gap, floats around, and gathers in the base of the joystick. This gums up the joystick, meaning it needs to be pressed HARD to push through the **** and operate the micro switch.

It is impossible to clean with brushes, cotton buds, cmopressed air etc. The crud needs to be broken down and washed away. The simplest way to do this is with electronic contact cleaner. This stuff comes in a spray can, with a long thin tube that fits into the trigger head.

This is what you do:

Go here to learn how to dismantle your cell (that link suits K750/W800).

Once you have the cell in pieces, grab the mainboard and contact cleaner and come back here.

Fit the tube to the triggerhead and spray the contact cleaner deep into the base of the joystick. Blast it in there for a few seconds then let it drain a bit, then repeat several times. Then repeat. And again. Get rid of all that crud messing up your beautiful cell icon_smile.gif

You'll feel a bit freaked out using contact cleaner. It runs off the circuitboard like water or very fine oil and you can't help but wonder if it's going to cause damage. But the beauty of contact cleaner is it evaporates without leaving any residue, and so it won't damage the mainboard at all. It also shouldn't set off water damage indicators.

Don't spray it on the lcd though (just incase - my k700 one went a bit funny, but then came good after a day). Keep the lcd away from the spray area.

Give the board a minute or two, then reassemble phone and test joystick. You should find a radical improvement. If still not 100%, try the whole process again, untill you can get no more improvement.

If after that it still isn't working properly, then your up for a new mainboard or to have a new joystick soldering in.

Hope that helps any game peeps out there who wanna fix their joysticks themselves.

It got mine sorted - it's like brand new icon_biggrin.gif

Z525a screen comes on but stays vacant.

If you have access to a laptop computer that has an Infrared Port or Bluetooth communications, you can download your videos and picture files via either of these two methods. I use an old IBM Thinkpad 600 with IR port to download mine. You have to put your z525 phone into Infrared mode first, its kind of tricky with out seeing what you are doing. First, open your phone, press upper right (-) sign to get menu, click joystick control down 2 times then right 1 time. next press upper left (-) sign to select. next joystick right 4 times, and down 1 time. press upper left (-) sign, then joystick up 1 time. press upper left (-) 1 time. Your Infrared Port will now be turned on, and your I.R. enabled laptop can now receive the files from your phone. Close your phone, open it again, press upper right (-) , press joystick down 1 time, then left 1 time, then press the joystick center select button 2 times. Joystick right 1 time, press joystick select 1 time. press upper right (-) 1 time, joystick down 5 times, joystick right 1 time, joystick down 3 times, joystick center select 1 time. Hold the lower left corner of your phone toward the I.R. port of the laptop, it will receive the first photo file in your camera pictures file. Another possible method would be to obtain a usb connector cable for the z525 phone to connect it to your computer. Using the usb cable the computer would recognize the phone, you could click on the phone icon, under "MyComputer" and transfer the files to your hard drive. I hope this helps. -Mike

It has the latest and great updates, software, even known issues if you ever come across this. HTC does recommend that you do a master/hard reset once a quarter to keep it moving smoothly. Also, ensure you don't have a lot of open running programs. Perhaps once a day, clean the cashe and history. Do a soft reset (aka battery pull) once or twice a week. All depends on how hard you play with this lovely PDA device!
