How i have set up hotmail on X10

in applications list hit the email icon and enter setup
enter your username and password
on the next screen you will need to add the @hotmail.co.uk or .com to the username
the server details are pop3.live.com
leave the port number as 995
security set as SSL (if available)
click next and the next screen which should be outgoing server
the server details are smtp.live.com
leave port number as 25
security type TLS (if available)
unchecked requires sign in

Using these settings i have got my email as and when requested also sending from the handset works. When going through the setup change to delete from server and it delets it too. Hope this works for other user too.

I have successfully sent and received bluetooth, yes 1.6 doesnt support as a rule but SE have added this as additional, with this in mind, not all media has successfully sent and sometimes do get an error, only one music track has failed all the other have been done successfully, just paired to the other device by going into
applications
settings
wireless
bluetooth
check the box for bluetooth on/off
search for other devices
pair using pass code
click on home screen
go into mediascape
find you file you are after and select the envelope
select bluetooth
click on other device and send
important to check is that the other device is bluetooth enabled and also check is need to activate discoverable as blackberry's and the X10 will require this before you both can receive.

If you like a lot of others are having battery issues, try going into the market adn searching for Advanced Task Killer in the free apps section and once downloaded its a simple yet effective tool to help stop any apps you cannot go into the menu option once in games alike and have to click back (<) exit. Battery last best part of 24 + hrs with used to make atleast 10 calls search web and apps market and email. cn vary to camera use and youtube streaming also. Turn off auto updates for all apps inc email timescape and refresh as and when you need to every cpl hrs. Work around 9 hrs 5 day and use for roughly 1.5 hr while in work.

Probably to do with the fact your wifi is close to your handset and the nearest mast could be miles away and the signal has to go through the walls and any other obsticle in its way, would more than likely show similar results if you went outside to use your wifi (just a thought no tech genius lol).

After a couple of weeks now with no issues on hotmail account, i have had a connection error come up, left it for an hr and went thru again. So if this happens a lot another workaround is bookmarking msn uk, click and hold the screen on that bookmark and select add shortcut to Home Screen, 2 clicks from Home Screen to msn uk and then the email icon at top and you get pretty much the same as you would when using the built in email app.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Hints and Tips

Having downloaded now just over 250 apps to my phone the intenal memory starting to get full only 107mb left, still got over 4gb left on sd card tho so not too bad, mind you with all this on the phone it still runs like out of the box, fast reliable and much all i need in a mobile with built in entertainment. Cant praise it enough and with the up coming releases of OS gona be an event worth waiting for i hope. Anyway...apps i've come to love are the obvious built in facebook, twitter and myspace for keepin in touch with mates. For just messing around when relaxing Super KO Boxing 2, very addictive and a good free app to play. Finger Bowling, yes Ten Pin Bowling on your phone, also Checkers, Texus holdem Poker, my 2 year old likes playin the kids games like paint you get on a pc called Finger Draw ,Touch! 4Kids farm animals sounds and Fishing to name a few. Of cousre to replace my trusty old Tom Tom theres Google Maps, a constant running app the does drain the battery faster than most but in the car plugged in isnt to bad to quick recharge. Since it is out there I've downloaded Antivirus as this is like a pc downloaded software from the web so better to be safe than sorry i guess. For all those playstation players out there I'm using ps3 trophies which allows me to display all my trophies on screen thru my phone so can check it anywhere.

If anyone else is using apps that have helped improve or replace day to day gadgets let me know!

The software that is needed to connect to pc is in the sd card, notice no cd in the box, same as user manual is in an app in the app menu. Connect the phone via the usb cable provided that same as u use in the usb plug. You should get a dialog box open that says install pc companion, 2 days ago there was an update prompted and has been upgraded. Once install u can mount the phone to the pc and run the Media Go software to sync ur media both ways. It may look like a lot of work but will soon become more easier.

Unless the app automatically saves to the sdcard then there is no easy way to back it up, u could try the developers website or email them from the link in the market. Some apps ive had on the phone allow u to unistall just the last update rollback u know such as google maps. Until SE come out with the access to move theapps to sd card, at the moment i think only 2.2 Froyo has this option built in.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Hints and Tips

Hi Guys i was wondering if there has been any talk about the X10 being further updated to android 2.2 as it is not good that we are only just being introduced to version 2,1 when other handsets that were out before this handset is on 2.2

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Hints and Tips

Hi there, I very much doubt Sony Ericsson will release a 2.2 (FroYo) update for the X10 although the phone has the technical capability, as they would rather people/consumers to purchase their up coming rumoured  android devices (x12?/psp phone).

 

However they did say on their blog (SE blog), that they are working on multitouch for the x10, support on limited functions such as web browsing and maps, apparently that update would be released sometime in Q1 2011.

 

Would so love to have flash :-(......next phone will be a HTC lol
