Reinstall operating system on my Sony W550i

Hi all experts,
I have this cell for about 2 years and it starts acting funky lately. I am thinking of reinstalling the OS. Does anyone know how?

ps I don't wanna take it back to the service center since they are gonna take years to repair.

Thanks,
Vicky

My fone wont start


Hi,

Try taking out the battery and leaving it out overnight then put back in and try to turn on again. If this doesn't help, then your phone's software needs to be flashed.

Phone crashed, is it fixable thanks, john


1. Remove the battery, SIM card and the memory stick from the phone and then replace the battery but DO NOT turn it on.
2. If you're operating Windows XP or earlier use your PC suite however with Vista you might have to download Sony Ericsson's Update Service software from the Sony Ericsson website
3. Then you'll have to download: WontanClient server, open it and allow the program to update. NOTE: you must leave the login box empty
4. Plug the USB cable into the computer but not the phone
5. Press start in Wontan
6. Press 2 and 5 Simultaneously
7. Plug your phone in and hopefully the phone will to reboot
8. Take out the battery for a few minutes and now your phone is hopefully working again.
