Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman® W880i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Plz help very strange problem

Hi. I bought w880i 2 months ago from a local store in Bangor of Wales. I wanted a sim free phone. The guys from the store gave me a fairly new unlocked w880i(the phone was prcviously formatted in vodafone's software). After 2 days of the purchase i realised that it didn't show me who called me. I gave the phone back in the store they ve told that they ll try to update the software and if the problem persisted then they would send it back to sony ericsson. After the update my phone was ok for a week but after that another problem started when i press the green button(yes) it tries to establish a connection to the internet and when i press the red button(no) another menu appears instead of turning off the call. They ve sent it back to sony.After 15 days i took the phone back but it was locked in vodafone again they unlocked it for me but i have again the same problem what do you advise me to do?(i think that i have the right to ask for a new one)plz help

The green and red buttons on the phone aren't used for making phone calls and ending phone calls. On all W880i's that were manufactured for vodafone usage the buttons are wrong and confusing. Me and my friend both have the same phone. He's on orange and I'm on T-Mobile but the phone has been unlocked it was a vodafone phone. Our buttons are different. His are clear in telling you what there for. Mine isn't. The green one is used to connect to something which i haven't figured out yet either e-mail or internet and the red button is to access your short cut menu. Its alot clearer on other W880i's than it is on ours. Its not a mistake it's just the way they're made. Hope this helps.

Hi there,i had purchased htc thunder bolt a month ago from Miami US and since it was a lock piece i also bought unlock code online.Now the biggest challenge i am facing is when i put my local active sim...


Hi, i think your step not correct when entering HTC Thunderbolt unlock code. You must use your old sim card to unlock your phone, don't use new sim card before that phones completely unlocked. That's why your sim card not recognized. If this method not working maybe you get wrong HTC unlock code, since it's little rare for me. Usually if you bought unlock code reputable online store, they usually send unlock code with complete instruction how to insert that unlock code in your phones. The bottom line try my method and if not working get new code. Thanks.

NB: don't enter your wrong code to many times in your phones, it will caused your HTC to hard locked state and you can't use that phone even you put your old sim card.

I bought optus prepaid mobile 7 month ago its working well bt suddenely 3 days ago its show unregistered simcard wht i have to do plz help me


If you did not insert a different SIM card in your mobile phone, then the SIM card may have developed a fault or the SIM card has run out of credits and needs to be re-charged.
I suggest you contact Optus to sort out this problem.

Sony Ericsson W880i won't turn on


Hi

Im about to make your day (Hopefully)

The same thing happened to me, i just fixed mines 2 minutes ago.

Follow this link

http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w880i?cc=gb&lc=en

Download the software

and follow instructions.

it will even tell you how to connect to the computer
even if it doesnt switch on.

Follow it trust me it helped me :)

However some of your things might be lost.

But NOT Sim contacts.
Mines have not gone
so there is a possibility they might stay.

Its just a software update.

By the way, when you have to chose the phones from the menu

pick the w880 as their is no w880i option
it works the same

So there you go

Good Luck :)
