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

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 ...

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 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 ...

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.

"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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Try pointing them to this link on the Sony Mobile website: http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/software/phones/xperia-x10-mini/ It has some software to download for mac or PC which will allow your friend to upgrade their device.

If SE has dropped support for your device (which seems likely) your only way to upgrade your phone is to take root control over your phone and install a custom ROM, a third party version of the Android operating system. There's a huge modding community, largely centered around the XDA developers forums. There's actually a subforum there for just your ...

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.

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 ...

As a fellow Android 1.6 user (I'm on an HTC Magic), I can confirm that there is no easy and safe way to change the Google Account that your phone links to. Anything you've saved into Google Contacts, Google Calendar, etc can be exported and imported into your other account fairly easy, other settings and data aren't so easy. Factory resetting your phone is ...

The X10 is distributed in two varieties for different regions of the world, and they're internally referred to as the X10a and the X10i by Sony Ericsson. Strictly speaking, X10 is just a general term for the hardware of either of the X10 phones, so there's no "difference" since an X10a is an X10. As for the difference between the X10a and the X10i, you can ...

The problem is these apps probably store the info on the sdcard, so once you mount it, it is unable to read/write that data. There is an app that I seen on the market that is supposed to let your phone still access the sdcard even when it is mounted. I do not know if it really works or how well it works, but you might be able to try that.

I just succeeded in transferring all my C702 contacts to Gmail via the Sony Ericsson C702 PC suite. My new Samsung Galaxy S2 was updated with my contacts within a few minutes with no further measures, though I had logged into my Gmail account via the Samsung phone earlier. I tried Bluetooth transfer from the C702 which didn't work, although I didn't try ...
