Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman® W880i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My phone is completely unresponsive.

I have had the phone for almost a year next month. When I first got it i had only had it about a week before it started having problems. The phone wouldn't record any missed, incoming or out going calls and it was like this for about a month and then it all of a sudden started to work. It was fine after that. No problems untill I had the phone about 3 months. I would hook my phone up to my mac computer and it would no longer register that it was hooked up to anything. And then shortly after it would no longer respond to the charger when it was plugged up. I would have to sit there and hold the charger firm in the ground and hold it at a certain angle for the phone to respond to the charger. And then one day it just completely stopped responding to that also. I don't know if it's an internal problem that may have been affected by my mac computer or if it's just the battery. So it's been sitting in my room for about 4 months not working. I purchaced a motorola for a temporary phone untill i get my sony fixed. I have been using it for  4-5 months and I absolutly HATE it! I want my phone back! do you know what might be wrong with it?

I think its just the Sony Erricson brand of phone because i have the exact same phone as you and mine freezes, turns off and sometimes wont let me answer any calls. I think its just a fault with the phone. My friend has the same phone also and she sent hers away to be fixed and they sent her a new phone of the same phone and this one is f***ed aswell!

They are lovely phones when they work. But i certainly wont buy another one...

I would like. By step instructions on how to T Mobile jump program works


T-Mobile's new JUMP! upgrade service offers you the option to pay a $10 monthly fee, which includes handset insurance, to then have the option to upgrade your device twice per year for no additional fee. The fee is separate from an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), which lets you purchase a phone with little money down and the rest of the cost spread out over 24 monthly payments. When upgrading a device, you must return your current device to T-Mobile in order to move on to the new one.
Although this new plan does offer the ability to upgrade your phone potentially every 6 months, we break down the cost over 12 months with just 1 upgrade in order to keep it consistent with AT&T's plan, which we'll detail next.
The breakdown of T-Mobile charges after a year is as follows:
  • $150 down for the handset
  • $20 per month EIP x 12 months = $240
  • $10 per month JUMP! fee x 12 months = $120
  • Total at 1-year trade-in = $510

AT&T Next

AT&T Next is more of an all-in-one package, which combines both the upgrade features of JUMP! with the EIP program that T-Mobile offers separately. With Next, you purchase a phone by agreeing at the start to pay 20 equal monthly payments which in the end total the full off-contract/unsubsidized handset price. For example, the Galaxy S4 retails for $640, so the monthly payment is $32. After 12 months of payments, you then have the option to return the working device to AT&T and have the final 8 monthly payments wiped out, letting you then purchase a new handset for $0 down and with 20 new payments.
Next only allows you to upgrade once per year, and while it does not carry an additional monthly fee like JUMP! it also does not include handset insurance. For the breakdown below, we've included AT&T's $7 per month handset insurance to even the playing field a bit.
Again, the breakdown of charges after a year:
  • $0 down
  • $32 per month x 12 months = $384
  • $7 per month insurance x 12 months = $84
  • Total at 1-year trade-in = $468

Differences

As we noted, there are a few differences between these upgrade schemes. First up are the upgrade cycles -- T-Mobile will offer you two upgrades per 12 month period, while AT&T only offers 1 per year. T-Mobile's more frequent upgrades come at no additional cost, however, meaning that an upgrade at 6 months costs the same as at 12 months. This means that you can trade in that Galaxy S4 for an HTC One after 6 months, and swap even once more if you want before AT&T offers you the first and only upgrade of the year.
The flip side is that T-Mobile charges a monthly fee for the ability to upgrade, whereas AT&T simply charges the handset price. That is almost a wash if you choose handset insurance on AT&T, but in the end it is optional. As we noted above, T-Mobile requires a down payment for most handsets, whereas AT&T bakes the price into the monthly payment instead. In both cases, you're agreeing to buy the phone for a full off-contract price, and simply have the option to return it before you've paid it off to get a new one -- in essence, you're renting a phone.
The biggest difference of all is what T-Mobile's JUMP! and AT&T's Next mean for your final bottom line when pairing that device with the service it needs to run.
What about that subsidy? And this is where we get to the big sticking point on AT&T's Next upgrade plans. Based purely on a device vs. device purchase basis, AT&T actually does offer the cheaper option for buying a phone on an installment plan and upgrading once every 12 months. What the above numbers don't show is how your monthly service charges don't change on AT&T regardless of whether or not you choose to buy a handset subsidized.
AT&T's service plans are structured and priced to factor in the cost of buying a subsidized handset on-contract every two years. The reason why you pay $200 on-contract for a Galaxy S4 is that the other $440 of the MSRP is spread out monthly in your service contract already. That roughly $20 per month subsidy is still included in your monthly service fee whether you choose to use that subsidy or not.

My 1 month old HTC HD2 phone freezes. It gave a message like "Launching Touch sense..." and then froze. I cannot open any application. Phone displays all tools, applications. But does not open any when...


It must have been something you have installed. Perhaps you should hard reset your device, in order to get rid of such a condition. To hard reset it, read chapter 14 'Performing a factory reset', on pages 292 and 293 of its user manual. It describes two ways of doing it: software (if your device responds to taps) or keys combination (it is completely unresponsive) driven.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos
