My new cellular phone is Sony ericsson w910i, these phones are a little different from Nokia phones so i'll be giving you some tips about how to start using the phone :

-To add a space between words u will use the (#) button instead of zero in Nokia phones.

-To switch to silent mood press the (#) buton for a few seconds.

-The bluetooth headset is usefull as the speakers are a little lower in sound. There's no proved method to increase the sound/voice in this phone, so if you increased the sound to the maximum and you still not satisfied, the bluetooth headset is your solution.

-The Sense me function is used in games, u just move your phone don't use the keys (up, down, right left)! but u can change the options.

-To mark several items in a list (messagesm for example) just choose options then Mark several.

-Use the key on the upper right side to increase or decrease the volume. If you are receiving a call you can make the phone silent by pushing this button once, pushing it twice will send a busy tone to the caller.

-Horizontal or vertical! u can view images and play music as u want just hold your phone horizontally or vertically and the picture will change it's direction to fit the new position.

-To change the writing language just press the (#) button for a few seconds (while writing a text message).

-To charge the bluetooth handsfree, use the phone charger, notice the small metal pins on the side plugged into the phone, one of them is a little longer, plug the headset in it. Like in this pic :




-Shake control : press on the Walkman® key, then flick your wrist. A vibration lets you know that the track has been changed - a new song from your current playlist is selected randomly then played automatically. Shake your wrist to the other side to go back to another song.
