Question about Cell Phones
Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Se Phones, Aahh! I love them, got K300, then W550i, then T303, now a days W595, nearly all of them got this issue, so frankly the solution is on my fingers now, if you are afraid of a little DIY (Do it yourself) stuff, then there is no simple solution. But if you got the USB Data Cable of your phone and ready to solve this, then you can, you definitely can.
Ok, before going to the solution let me tell you the reason behin including d this, its a famous Firmware Bug of SE Phones, and the solution lies in updating/flashing the Phone's firmware, it is as simple as 123, but the problem is you will loose all the data incluting, music, pics, contacts, rings, videos... So you have to back them up before updating. You can use PC Suite for this, it will take a minute to backup and then a minute to restore after.
Ok, now if you want to Update the Firmware, all you have to do is to download SE Software update Utility, from the link I've provided below. Download it, install it and run the application, the wizard will guide you on how and when to connect the Phone. I'll also recommend you to read the "Before you begin" section there, because this may be the first time you are doing this.
In case you are having issue, you can hit back to FixYa anytime, no worries, we are here to help.
