Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman® W880i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sony Ericsson W890i

I just bought a new Sony Ericsson W890i but I'm use to using Nokia's and when I received a text or I miss a call I DON'T get the notification box on my screen saying '1 new message' or '1 missed call'. Does this phone allow you to set this alert up? I only know I've got a text IF i happen to spot the TINY little envelope at the top of my screen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Same here. Incoming calls and messages = no sound. Wen choosing a ringtone or one of the message alert tones from the phone's own menu, hitting the Play option makes the keypad flicker, but no sound is produced. If a ringtone from imported songs and sounds is chosen, the Play preview works. Still no sound on incoming though. Also tried Master Reset, as well as removing the battery and sim and leaving the phone for about 5 minutes before re-assembling. (This solution works for another brand.) Still no joy.

    I have the same problem. No sound when a call or a message comes in and also no sound when the alarm clock starts.
    It makes me nuts *grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr*

Go to "Settings" (Open Menu, press #)
It should present you with a menu of general configurations. Look for "New events" (or similar. Should be the 6th menu item in there)
It allows you to choose if new events (like messages, missed calls etc) will pop-up, or nicely place themself in a list :)
Hope this helped you out.

My sony ericsson has no sound when ringing


If your player is working, and you already setup menu/settings/sounds&alerts/ring volume 5-8, and silent off you should use your warranty for that phone. That is the problem with most se w890i.

Missing new text message notification and alert sound


well i am not so sure about what would have went wrong..but you can check if you have enabled Screened messages. In that case messages do come but they directly go into the screened messages.

Sony ericsson w890i makes loud buzzing noise during calls


This is not essentially a problem with your phone. It may be the network. If you tried another network and still have the issue, I would assume that this is a problem with the RF receiver. This "buzz" is caused due to the RF receiver turning on and off at a rapid pace. Suggest that you get your phone serviced. It shouldn't cost you much.
