For all SE T6XX phone users
Hi to all T6XX users. I created this thread just to help you find most of
the tips and tricks that can be done on T6XX. Hope this will help
reduce searching and posting.
I tried them on my T610 with fw R3C002 and all of them work.
1. O.k, i'll start with the camera.
On phones with newer firmware, u can use the joystick to adjust
saturation and shutter speed (brightness).
Up/Down to increase/decrease brightness
Left/Right to adjust saturation.
There are shortcut in the camera function:
Press 1 to change the size of picture
2 to act/deact Night mode
3 to turn on/off Effects
4 to act/deact Timer
To prevent the software from compressing the pictures taken by the
camera, u should continuously tap the joystick or the camera button
until it ask Send-Save-Discard and the backgroung will become black.
After saving the picture, take another one and the phone will process
the previous picture and u should get a clear and sharp picture.
But the disadvantage is that the picture will take about 50-60kb
instead of 30-40kb.
2. Cut-Copy-Paste function (only available whn editing contacts in
Highlight the contact to be edited and press More and choose Edit
Contact. Now, for example if you have replace the number in Home by the
number in Mobile, just highlight Mobile and press and hold * followed
by 1, the number will disappear. Highlight Home and press and hold *
followed by 3. The number will be pasted here.
Cut - press and hold * then 1
Copy - press and hold * then 2
Paste - press and hold * then 3
3. Add a ghost image (not ghost that ur thinking of, i'm talking about
a hidden image) to a contact.
Add the image u want to the contact. Now in My Pictures, open the image
that u applied to the contact and rotate it. When u'll erase the image,
the phone won't say that the picture is in use. U can erase it and the
picture will stay applied to the contact. To see the image, u just have
to Go in Phonebook-Pictures.
---Please note that u can't move back the picture in My Pictures, so
backup the picture before doing this---
4. Highlighting texts.
When u are writing a message or anything else, u can highlight a
part of it so that it can be erased or formatted quickly. to do
that, press and hold a Volume Button and move the joystick to
5. Memory function in Calculator.
If u have save a number in memory when using the calculator, press the
Volume button +
6. Write text messages with the WAP button.
Create a new bookmark with any name and write mailto: in Address.
U can also use it as a template. For example if u want to create a new
text message with Hello already written in it, the address should be
written like that, mailto:Hello
That's a very nice trick as a new text message can be created with a
starting phrase already written using the WAP button.
7. How to get extra memory when it's full
Create an empty theme (without pictures) with Theme Creator, send it to
When ur memory is full and that u need some more memory to take
pictures or record sounds, apply the empty theme and u'll get extra
memory, the amount that will be freed up depends on the size actual
theme. Normally it frees up between 20-100kb.
