On the stock keyboard on my Droid (the soft keyboard, not the slide-out) I see the tab character on the alt-symbol keyboard. Hit ?123 key, then Alt. The tab key looks like an arrow pointing right to a line.

If you use the Swype keyboard, holding the space key gives you a tab. Smart Keyboard Pro also has tab, press ?123 twice for it. Reference: http://androidforums.com/android-applications/151563-softkeyboard-tab-key.html

Go to Settings > Accounts and Settings, click on the account that you don't know the password and then click the Remove Account button on the bottom. So next time you open up Android Market you'll be prompted to type in a new account

There are regional and phone network restrictions for Skype. They may well be different for Nokia phones than Android phones, and your friend may not be on the same phone network as you. There (is now) one official Skype app in the Play Store, and one I know of that isn't in Play Store: Skype on Three- Three UK customers only, follow directions on the ...

If you long click on a text box, you have the option to change the keyboard to any you have enabled under Settings -> Language & Keyboard. Maybe you accidentally switched it ;)

In android you can create a shortcut to do that: Long press on home screen, a menu will pop up with title "Add to Home"; From there choose "shortcut" -> "Person"; Choose the person you want and then select the default action like call or message. For you it will be call. You'll see the icon of that person on the home screen upon pressing which will make ...

64-bit WEP key in ASCII mode is 5 characters, and since you've said your WEP key is 0e39c004e1, you have to enter it in HEX mode. I'm not sure if your phone can handle HEX input, so if I were you, I'd try to (temporarily) assign some other WEP password, which can be entered in ASCII mode (5 random characters, letters or numbers), and see if that works from ...

If you have Froyo or newer (2.2+) you can use SeekDroid (Market link) or for lower versions the same company did Find My Phone (Market link). I've tested only SeekDroid, works great with the web interface, with Find My Phone you only get the GPS coordinates via text message, but you can input the coordinates to Google Maps for example.

Android supports ogg. You create a folder on your sdcard called Music and Android will recognize it. Here's a list of supported media formats.

I read similar reports lately, related to Titanium Backup.. When it runs, it kills apps to back them up, causing the phone process to restart. If you aren't running something similar, I would recommend using USB debugging and the SDK to capture log data.. Known as "logcat" in the Android world. Oh -- Here's an easy way to capture and review log data on ...

SMS Backup + reports to work on Android 1.5 and above and it backs up MMS. It pushes everything to your GMail account under a defined label. I've been using it for a while and it's very good.

I do not think there's any support for the x10 from CM for the v9 release. For reference: Xperia Arc => anzu Xperia Neo => hallon Xperia Pro => iyokan Xperia Mini Pro => mango Xperia Ray => urushi Xperia Mini => smultron Xperia Arc S => ayame Xperia Neo V => haida Xperia Active => satsuma Live with Walkman => coconut Xperia Neo L => phoenix Edit: ...

I have no prior experience with Sony Erricsson software, but I think their PC Suite solution (found here) deals with the syncing of Contacts etc.

You could try opening the vcard file in Outlook, there is also other software out there if you google "vcard editor", find one you want and make sure there aren't any issues with the file. In this case, you could remove the offending line, save with a new name and then try to import again. Another option, you could import your contacts into your Google ...

Mediascape doesn't lose track any more after the latest upgrade of the phone.

"cell standby" = "background sync". And if your Wifi turns off on screen off, apps will use 3G instead. You might want to check your Wifi policy, which is hidden in the "advanced" menu: When in "network & wireless" -> "wifi", hit the menu button and select "advanced". Here, switch your Wifi policy to "always on" -- so it will stay on when the display is ...

Don't mix things here. From your posts it looks like you have entered your SIMs PIN to often and need now to enter your PUC/PUK. This has nothing do to with your androids phone lock. In Germany it's common practice to receive the PUK together with the SIM card. If you have no PUK you can only ask your SIM provider for the PUK or a new SIM. I am not aware of ...

Most apps do this now to protect the user's mobile data usage. Knowing that most data plans are limited (200 MB a month, in the case of my roommate), developers prevent users from, say downloading a 45 MB game from the Play Store/Amazon App Store via mobile network, as this would not be beneficial, seeing as it would take almost 1/4 of your data and would ...

This is not version of CM - it's CM code name of device. Depending on your device you should download needed release.

Most of the time it's because Battery Saver Mode is on. 3G is (often) slow compared to Wifi, so it takes a lot longer to complete large downloads and drains the battery a lot more. Turning battery saver mode off will allow you to download via 3G on many phones. Another possible (app-specific) reason is that it just uses up too much bandwidth and wouldn't be ...

Short answer: As per the documentation, Yes. Long answer: Your Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, uses the Qualcomm Atheros MSM8255 product brief PDF for MSM8255 Snapdragon CPU processor, which in turn uses WLAN 802.11b/g/n. As per the MadWifi project page: The MadWifi project is … ... a team of volunteer developers working on Linux kernel drivers for ...

I think this is most likely a problem with the Android platform itself. My own LG P500 phone won't connect to any WEP secured network even though the key is 100% correct. In that case it was an iMac desktop with connection sharing through WEP, as that was the only option available for sharing. It's not ideal, but perhaps finding a good compelling article ...

The screen is usually the largest consumer of battery on any device, as it takes the most power to run. Some suggestions I can give about battery drain is to make sure that you are turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS when you don't need them. They are also large consumers of battery. Apps like twitter, Google+, and Facebook that either check frequently or ...

Have you tried the Sony Ericsson PC Companion suite? The latest version's Sync Zone should be able to work with Outlook. There are other packages on the market that can do this for you, but most are paid like for example CompanionLink ($49, free 2 week trial) with its Android app DejaOffice.

AOSP/Stock Android builds allow importing contacts from SIM cards, or VCF files (which are just text files.) I am unsure the SE Xperia Neo allows you to do this - if so, it's relatively easy to build a VCF file.

I was using Google Maps Latitude (AFAIK shipped with stock Android) for that purpose. Latitude is now integrated with Google Maps.

I would suggest to start your phone in recovery mode (download and install quickboot from market). If your phone restart in recovery mode you just need to find the last version of cyanogen working on your phone, install it and live happily. If you don't feel like it just do a wipe all from your recovery menu (that's a complete "format" of your phone) and ...

I would recommend going back to the Sony official firmware. This thread has step-by-step instructions for reverting Xperia X10 handsets to stock ROM. You might want to search the thread to confirm that the process is the same for your X10i model before starting. Keep in mind that flashing to the stock firmware will erase all of your settings and installed ...
