Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

No message recieved or missed call alerts


This problem has only been occuring over the last couple of days. Usually if i receive a message or a missed call, my screen lights up...with a locked keypad, and it will show me the name of the person who messaged me or whose call I missed, along with the time or the first line of the message. Recently my screen has not been lightin up and I am only receiving a msg envelope symbol or a red back arrow for a missed call at the top of the screen next to the keypad locked symbol.

Do you know why this is happening or more importantly how I can fix it. I dont know who has phoned or message me until I go inot my inbox all call register in my menu. Thanks very much for your help.

You can try to reset the phone back o it's default settings...if that does not work you may need to reflash your mobile.

Why can't I recieve multi-media messages?

2 reasons you cant receive mms messages. 1st you have to turn your mobile data on even if your on wi-fi and 2, your phone must be set up to receive them ( you do this by ringing your provider and ask them to send you mms settings , you will get a text from them with the settings in)

I had a similar problem recently.Where messages would recieve, but no alert, no vibrate, no notice of "1 new message received". Even restarting the phone wouldn't solve this. I eventually managed to resolve this by freeing up some space from the phone (old messages, photos,etc) and restarting. I haven't had a problem since.
Hope this helps you, and please rate this solution, thanks :)
