Question about Sony Ericsson w580i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Sony Ericsson W508 phone, I had just sent a text when I noticed it said "Incorrect SIM card", I took the back off the ph, removed battery & SIM card, replaced them (correctly) & now my phone does'nt turn on properly, when it does it has an all white background, (before it had a background I had saved, it says no network coverage & I can't see any of my contacts, photo's or texts. I have talked to Telecom & they seem to think it is a hardware problem which I am not happy with as I have only had it for just over 12 months (only has 12 month warranty which ran out 13th of last month) hoping someone can help because I am not buying another phone. Thanks Quade

I have a sony ericcson w910i. i am unable to receive texts from my wifes phone. She has sent numerous texts and they haven't come through. i receive texts from other mobiles no problem and can send them no...


Hey John

Issue is not with your phone.. Your wife's phone or network might have a problem.. Wat about the msgs sent to others from your wife's phone.. Check the message centre number in your wife's phone.. If it's correct(Find it from the network provider) remove it and restart the phone. Or try entering the same message centre number. (No proofs, but stillthis cliche works... Try restarting the phone, remove the sim and insert it properly again.. Use a different sim in your wife's phone, send a few msgs, check it works.. then try sending msgs from your wife's sim from her phone).. Reply back if it works...

My sony ericsson phone says when i turn it on is (no network cove


I would first try removing the sim card and placing it back in the phone. Open the battery cover, remove the battery, remove the sim card, rub it with a clean cloth on the metallic areas, replace the sim card, replace the battery, replace the cover.
Turn phone back on.

If that doesnt fix it, where did you get the phone? If its through t-mobile or something, contact them. If you bought it online, try sonyericsson's website

Texts go to outbox but are not sent


Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.

What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!
