SIM card
Battery
When you register as a subscriber with
a network operator, you receive a SIM
(Subscriber Identity Module) card. The
SIM card contains a computer chip that
keeps track of your phone number, the
services included in your subscription
and your phonebook information,
among other things.
Before you use your P910a for the first time, charge the battery
provided for at least 4 hours. Use the supplied charger. See
‘Charging the battery’ on page 13.
A PIN (Personal Identity Number)
code is supplied with the SIM card
from your operator and must be entered
when switching on the P910a.
2. Remove the battery cover by
sliding it downwards.
Open the battery cover by pressing slightly on its upper part and
slide it down the P910a. Insert the SIM card as shown in the
picture.
Some subscriptions are limited to call only predefined numbers,
so-called Fixed Dialing Numbers (FDN). To avoid problems
when traveling abroad, these predefined numbers should be
defined as international numbers starting with +, for example
+4613244500. In order to speed up calling while at home, the
same numbers can also be added in the national number format,
for example 013244500.
For more information. see ‘Copying contacts to and from the
SIM card’ on page 105.

Memory Stick
Memory Sticks provide a convenient way of increasing the
storage space in the phone. You can use both Memory Stick
Duo™ and Memory Stick PRO Duo™ in your P910a. Memory
Sticks used in P800 or P900 can be used in P910a but you
cannot use a P910a Memory Stick PRO Duo™ in P800 or P900.
You can save pictures, video clips, music, and voice recordings
as well as computer data and applications on a Memory Stick
and use it to store or transfer the contents for many different
purposes. These include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Storing backup copies of important files.
Storing media for personalizing your P910a.

Formatting a Memory Stick
New Memory Sticks are normally automatically formatted first
time they are inserted in a phone. The phone stops working
during the formatting and it can take some time.
Note Do not remove a Memory Stick during formatting. If
removed it will be unusable.
If you need to reformat a Memory Stick, select
Control Panel
> Other > Format disk and tap Format, or select
File manager >
File > Format disk and tap Format. When you format a Memory
Stick, you delete all the information on it, including any
applications that you may have installed.
Sharing data with other devices
Your P910a uses the shorter Memory Stick variants, Memory
Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo.
Memory Stick adapter
Use the Memory Stick adapter when using your Memory Stick
in a device equipped with a regular sized Memory Stick, for
example a personal computer. Insert your Memory Stick
according to the picture on the adapter.
Warning! Do not insert a Memory Stick adapter without a
Memory Stick into a Memory Stick slot. This may damage the
product. Always insert the adapter in the slot with the connector
end (marked with a triangle) first.
23
Getting to know your P910a
Compatibility
The P910a defines its own folder structure on a Memory Stick.
Each application has its own set of folders. A folder created in
one application is not visible in another.
Other devices must access the same folder structure to interact
with the P910a files. If you are using a PC, this is easily done by
browsing to the required folder on the Memory Stick.
Memory Stick enabled devices which do not allow you to
browse and manage a folder structure may not be able to share
data directly with the applications in your P910a (for example,
Memory Stick enabled digital cameras). However, the File
Manager can access these files and move them into the correct
folders for use by the applications. When your P910a is
connected to your PC, you also have access to the P910a folder
structure as well as other Memory Stick content in My P910a.
Personal computer support
Both PCs and Apple computers may be enabled for Memory
Stick use via built-in Memory Stick slots, floppy disk adapters,
PC card adapters, and Memory Stick enabled mice. (Memory
Stick adapter required.)

General functions
Application launcher views
In flip open, the P910a can present the applications in two ways:
• List view (small icons appear in one column)
• Icon view (large icons appear in two columns)
Folders
a handheld device. If you make it a habit to set up specific
folders to suit your needs and use them to categorize all your
information, working with it becomes easy.
Each application has its own set of folders. A folder created in
one application is not visible in another.
For each application there is a default Unfiled folder. Since there
is no way of seeing on your P910a, whether a file in an Unfiled
folder is located on your P910a or on a Memory Stick, we
recommend that you move files to your own folders as soon as
possible.
Every item created in an application is always assigned to a
single folder, by default the folder as displayed in the list view.
In list view, the folder menu is used to organize your entries. In
detail view, the folder menu allows you to change the folder of
the current item.
Folders are used to organize information, for example contacts,
jotter entries, or task lists. You might want to organize your
contacts in business and personal folders.
Using the folder menu
In the applications that use folders you can see the folder menu
to the right in the menu bar.
Folders are also used when managing files of different types on
your P910a and Memory Stick. You might want to move or copy
sound files into a sound track folder to store on a Memory Stick.
When a Memory Stick is available in the P910a, the folders on it
are shown in the folder menu under the divider. If you rename
the disk (see ‘Renaming a Memory Stick’ on page 22) the
divider will show the new name.
As you may notice, if you connect your P910a to a PC and view
the contents of your P910a in My P910a, it is easier to get an
overview of a folder and file structure on a large screen than on

Flip keyboard
Located on the inside of the flip,
the keyboard is similar in design
to that of a standard computer
keyboard.
With the flip open you use the
keyboard keys to enter text, for
example, when writing a text
message. When you press a key,
if there are additional characters
associated with that key, then these will be shown in a pre-edit
box in the title area: e 'e ee é è e ê
If the same key is pressed again, the next character in the preedit box will be selected. You can also use the Jog Dial to run
through and select characters in the pre-edit box. (The pre-edit
box will be displayed on screen for as long as you have the key
depressed.) When the key is released, the highlighted character
will be selected after approximately 1 second.
Press
to delete the character or spaces to the left of the
cursor. Press and hold
to delete several characters and then
whole words.
Press the space key to enter a character space to the right of the
cursor. Press and hold the space key to move the cursor forward
by inserting 6 space characters at a time.
Note When typing, press the keys one after another. Not, for
example,
and E simultaneously.

capital letter. Any additional keys pressed will be displayed
in lowercase.
CAPS
• Press
twice for caps-lock. Any additional keys pressed
will be displayed in uppercase until
is pressed again to
remove caps-lock.

Using the 123 key

Inserting symbols
There are a number of ways to insert symbols with the P910a
keyboard.
• Press the
or
keys to show additional symbols in the
pre-edit box in the title area.
• Use the
to access the colored symbols on the keys.
• Holding down the
key for a short time will generate the
symbol selector table. To select a symbol use the Jog Dial by
first scrolling through the rows, and select the row by
pressing the Jog Dial inwards. Then use the Jog Dial to scroll
within the row, and selecting the symbol by pressing the Jog
Dial inwards.
See “Flip settings” on page 167 how to specify which keyboard
your P910a has.
SIM card lock
The SIM card lock protects your SIM card, not the P910a,
against unauthorized use. It is unlocked by the PIN and PUK
codes which you receive from your service provider.
You can choose to have to unlock the SIM card every time you
turn the P910a on, or to have the SIM card unlocked.
Your PIN (Personal Identification Number) code consists of four
to eight digits. If you activate the SIM card lock, the P910a will
ask for the PIN code every time you turn it on. You unlock the
SIM card by entering the PIN code.
To activate the SIM card lock
1. Select
Control panel > Device > Locks.
2. Select a lock option.
3. Select Done.
P910a locks
Use the SIM card lock and the device lock to protect your SIM
card and your P910a from unauthorized use. Use the keylock to
prevent the keys from being accidentally pressed.
Note You can usually make an emergency call without
unlocking the P910a.
37
Getting to know your P910a
An error message informs you if a wrong PIN code has been
entered. Usually, the SIM card will be blocked after three wrong
attempts (the number of attempts is SIM-card dependent), and
you need to enter the PUK code to unblock it.
The PUK code consists of eight digits. When you have entered
the right PUK code you must enter a new PIN code. You have
ten attempts to enter the PUK code. If all ten attempts fail, the
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
SIM card will be disabled and you need to contact your network
operator.
You cannot change the PUK code.
PIN2
Some functions on the SIM card can be protected by a
secondary code feature. Some SIM cards do not have a PIN2
lock.
The PIN2 lock cannot be deactivated. The code can be changed
by a user who knows the old code.
Device lock
The device lock protects your P910a and the data in it against
unauthorized use.
If the device lock is set to When SIM changed, it means that the
P910a is not normally locked. However, if the SIM has been
changed, the P910a asks you to enter the code to unlock the
P910a before you can use it. This means that if someone steals
your P910a and puts another SIM card into it, they will not be
able to use it.
The default device lock code is 0000.
To activate the device lock
1. Select
Control panel > Device > Locks.
2. Select a lock option.
3. Select Done.
You can choose to have the P910a locked every time you turn it
on, locked when the SIM card has been changed, or unlocked.
It is also possible to use the device lock in combination with the
Control panel > Device >
screen saver. Just mark the checkbox
Display > Screen > Screen saver device lock to have the device lock
activated when the screen saver goes on.
Note When using the screen saving device lock, make sure you
have set the device lock to activate at Power on. Otherwise your
P910a will be unprotected after Power on, until the screen saver
goes on.
Note You will not be able to browse the contents of your P910a
from a PC, or synchronize items using the SyncStation, when the
P910a device lock is enabled and active.
Note Your operator can block your SIM, if you report that your
phone has been stolen.
The device lock is not on when you buy your P910a. You can
change the device lock code to any four to eight digit personal
code.

Solitaire
Solitaire is a card game played with a standard deck of 52 cards
and up to 4 Jokers.
• Aces are low and may not be played onto kings. Jokers can
be played onto any card and any card can be played onto a
joker.
The purpose of Solitaire is to remove all the cards from the piles
to the layout card while scoring as many points as possible.
Play Solitaire
Points are awarded for playing pile cards and bonus points are
awarded for unbroken, ascending or descending runs of four or
more rank cards.
1. Select the icon for Solitaire.
The game will either start with a new game or with the layout
for an earlier, interrupted game. (the game data is saved on
return to desktop, when the flip is closed or when the battery
is low).
When you cannot play any more cards and cards still remain in
the piles, the game is over. If all the pile cards are removed,
bonus points are awarded and the hand is won. You are then
challenged to play a Higher/Lower game to acquire more bonus
points. After the challenge, the game continues and a new hand
is dealt with one less Joker.
Solitaire is only available with the flip open.
2. Select the card you want to move and it will be highlighted.
3. Select the card to which you would like to move the
highlighted card.

layout card.
To undo/redo a move
Select Edit > Undo move / Redo move.
• Cards can only be played from the bottom of the piles.

Messages
With
Messages you can create, send, and receive different
types of messages:
SMS (Short Message Service) messages are text
messages sent and received via the network operator's
message center. When a text message has pictures,
sounds, melodies and animations inserted, it becomes
an EMS (Enhanced Message Service).
MMS (Multimedia Message Service) messages.
A multimedia message can contain text, graphics,
animations, photographic images, audio clips and ring
melodies.
Email messages. Your P910a mail client supports POP3
and IMAP4 mail servers, MIME attachments and
SMTP for sending mail.
You also use Messages to receive:
• Area Information messages.These are text messages
broadcast to all subscribers in a network area, for example
local road reports or local taxi phone numbers. (Area
Information services are not available from all operators).
• BIO (Bearer Independent Object) messages. There are
different types of messages:
– Setup (email, Internet, WAP accounts).
– Email notifications.
– Files for exchanging electronic business cards (vCard)
and calendar information (vCal).
• Auto setup files for OTA (Over The Air) configuration.
• Beamed messages. These are files received via infrared or
Bluetooth wireless technology.
The different types of messages are handled by separate
messaging accounts. Select
Control panel > Connections >
Messaging accounts to see the details of the messaging accounts
on your P910a.
You can have any number of email accounts - a typical
configuration will be one business and one personal account.
When you set up a synchronization with your PC, an account for
synchronized email is automatically created on your P910a.
With the flip closed, text and multimedia messages can be sent
and received using the Jog Dial and the keypad. More advanced
tasks are, however, best handled with the flip open.
Before using Messages
Before you can send and receive any messages (except for SMS)
you need to set up the necessary accounts.

A simple way of setting up an Internet, email, or MMS account
is to ask your service provider to send you a message that
contains the required information to create an account
automatically on your P910a. You can also use the Web phone
setup-message generator on www.SonyEricsson.com. Received
auto-setup messages are stored in the Auto setup inbox.
See ‘Getting started with Internet and Messages’ on page 172.
Folders in Messages
Messaging accounts can have the following folders: Inbox,
Outbox, Draft, Sent, and folders you can create yourself, local
folders. You can also subscribe to folders based on a server
(remote folders), if you have selected IMAP for your email
account.
Inbox
To save an email message to Outbox
1. After composing your message, select Send.
2. Select Save to outbox.
Messages that you send from an email synchronization account
are always saved to Outbox and sent from your PC after your
next synchronization.
Draft
Draft contains
messages that are not ready to be sent.
To store a new message in Draft
Create the message and exit without selecting Send.
To move a message from Outbox to Draft
Open the Outbox message list, select the message, and select
Message > Move to draft.
Inbox contains received messages. You can reply to, forward,
and delete messages, but not edit them.
Sent
Outbox
Tip Regularly delete old messages from your Sent folder,
especially those with attachments, to clear storage space.
Outbox contains messages that are ready to be sent. If you are
creating several messages, and not using GPRS, you can reduce
connection time by saving them to Outbox and then connect and
send them all at the same time.

If you have selected connection type IMAP for your email
account, you can subscribe to remote folders on your email
server. (To select connection type, see “Email account basic tab
settings” on page 161.) By default you subscribe to an Inbox
folder.
Note If you change connection type, your Inbox will be emptied.
Use the Get&send command to download your messages again.
See “Get and send” on page 97.
To subscribe to a new remote folder
1. From the folder menu, select Subscribe.
2. Select the check box for the folders you wish to subscribe to.
3. Tap Done.
Handling text messages
A text message is sent via SMS (Short Message Service). It can
contain up to 160 characters (70 characters if you use non-Latin
characters). If you create a longer message it will be sent as two
(or more) separate messages (concatenated), but will usually be
received as one message. If you add pictures, sounds and other
items to your message it becomes an EMS message.
Text messages can be sent to one or more people (not more than
thirty, we recommend), and you can request a delivery report
when your text messages have been delivered to the recipients.
The delivery report arrives on your P910a as a text message.
The new folders are shown in the folder list. Your subscribed
folders will be shown in a flat structure, that is, subfolders will
be shown on the same level as main folders. Use the Get&send

MMS service and how the receiving phone complies to MMS
specifications. Phones can, for example, only receive pictures of
a maximum size, video and sound.

Installing applications
It is possible to install new applications in your P910a. These
applications can be obtained in several ways, for example:
• from the Internet.
• from a CD.
Applications which are not approved by Sony Ericsson are not
guaranteed to work correctly or securely, and users install them
at their own risk. Product failures caused by applications not
approved or made for Sony Ericsson will not be covered by your
warranty.
• from a Memory Stick.
• as an email attachment.
There are two types of installation files for applications:
Installing applications on your
P910a
• SIS (Symbian Standard Installation) made for P910a or other
Sony Ericsson devices.
Installation file security
• from other devices.
• MIDP JAR (Mobile Information Device Profile Java
Archive).
Note SIS and JAR files are installation packages containing one
or more files.
Programs made for the Sony Ericsson P800 and P900 series can
also be used in the P910a.
This chapter also applies to other types of software to install, for
example, system components and add-ons.
Applications from developers outside Sony Ericsson, so-called
third-party developers, might be possible to install in the P910a.
Installation files in SIS format are typically used for installation
of Epoc or PersonalJava™ applications or other content into the
P910a file system.The vendor who prepared the SIS file decides
where in the file system the various content of the SIS file will
be installed. This means that you need to decide if you trust that
the SIS file does not contain harmful content. If you are certain
of the origin of the SIS file you can take an installation decision
based on what you know about that vendor. Your P910a
supports cryptographic verification of vendor identity.
During installation the P910a verifies a digital signature and
certificate in the SIS file against a root certificate in the phone.
Successful verification means that you can trust the origin of the
Installing applications
131
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
SIS file and that the content has not been modified after it was
created. If the SIS file does not contain a digital signature you
will be given a warning about the problem but you can still
decide to proceed with the installation at your own risk. In
general, it is recommended that you install only from SIS files
where the vendor identity and file integrity can be verified.
Note Installation of uncertified applications may cause your
system to crash and all your data will then be lost.
MIDP applications run in a protected environment with no
access to sensitive information so no signatures are required for
MIDP JAR files.

Connection via Bluetooth
wireless technology
You can connect your P910a to other products equipped with
Bluetooth wireless technology, for example PCs, car handsfree
devices, or other mobile phones, and exchange data. Since
Bluetooth wireless technology is radio-based, there does not
have to be a free line of sight between transmitting and receiving
devices. This means that your P910a can stay in your pocket
while communicating. However, items between transmitting and
receiving devices might weaken the signal.
Connection to another device can be made within a range of up
to 10 meters. Obstructions between the transmitting devices will
have an effect on the performance. For all tasks, except
beaming, it is necessary that you first set up a permanent and
trusted relationship between your P910a and the other device.
This process is called pairing (other documentation may refer to
it as bonding). The paired devices are remembered by your
P910a even after you have turned it off so you do not need to
repeat the process for every connection with those devices. The
reason for pairing is to simplify future connections and to make
them secure – only paired devices can connect to your P910a.
Activating Bluetooth wireless technology
Activate Bluetooth wireless technology on your P910a in Control
panel > Connections > Bluetooth > Settings. Set Bluetooth to On, and
set if your P910a should be Visible by other devices or not. See
‘Bluetooth’ on page 153 for more information on Bluetooth
wireless technology settings.
The Bluetooth wireless technology operation mode can also be
changed with the flip closed, through the Connections
application. When the Bluetooth wireless technology is
activated,
appears on the screen and the left indicator light
on top of your P910a flashes blue.
Pairing
To let your P910a initiate pairing with another device, such as
a headset
1. In Control panel > Connections> Bluetooth > Settings, set Bluetooth
to On. Make sure Visible to other devices is selected.
2. Set the other device to be on or discoverable.
3. In the Devices tab, tap Add. Your P910a searches for all
devices in the vicinity and lists them.
– All enabled devices that are visible to others within range,
are shown with their name and icon. You can use Show: to
restrict the list to one category (only PC, for example).
– Paired devices that are within range are shown with
regular text.

4. Select the device you want your P910a to pair with, and enter
a passcode when asked for it. When the passcode is accepted,
the pairing process is complete, see ‘Passcodes’ on page 138.
5. If in the future you want to allow a paired device to connect
to your P910a without you explicitly approving each
connection, you should select Control panel > Connections >
Bluetooth > Devices, then select a device and the check box
Allow to connect without confirmation.
To let another device initiate pairing with your P910a
1. In Control panel > Connections > Bluetooth > Settings, set
Bluetooth to On.
2. Follow the other device’s manual to initiate pairing.
3. When asked for a passcode, enter the same on both devices.

Tip You can change the name of a paired device. When you pair
with other Bluetooth wireless technology enabled phones, it is
very useful to include the user's name as part of the device
name. This will make it very easy to beam information to the
desired recipients.
To let a headphone initiate pairing with your P910a
1. Check that the device you want to pair with your P910a:
– Is on and within range.
– Has its Bluetooth function activated and that it is in
visible mode.
2. In Control panel > Connections > Bluetooth > Settings, set
Bluetooth to On.
3. Follow the headphone’s manual to initiate pairing on the
headphone.
4. In the Devices tab tap Add. Your P910a searches for all
devices in the vicinity and lists them.
5. When asked for a passcode, enter the headphone’s passcode
on your P910a.
6. If in the future you want to allow the headphone to connect to
your P910a without you explicitly approving each
connection, you should select Control panel > Connections >
Bluetooth > Devices, select the headphone and the check box
Allow to connect without confirmation.

Passcodes
Bluetooth Shared. The item is then copied to the Shared folder,
accessible by other users. When a user requests to access your
Shared folder, a request dialog is shown, where you can Accept or
Reject the transfer.
Passcodes ensure that the device you pair with really is the
device you think it is. A passcode is a set of numbers and/or
letters (at least four characters) that you agree to exchange with
the owner of the other device. Simply agree a passcode with the
other user and each enter the same code into both devices when
asked for it. The actual code is up to you; the important thing is
that you both enter the same code. Accessories like headsets
often have a default passcode, usually ‘0000’, see the specific
user guide.
Send and receive
You can send items via Bluetooth wireless technology in any
application if there is a Send as command. To send, select
Bluetooth. If you receive an item via Bluetooth wireless
technology, a dialog box appears with three options: Delete, View
or Done. Delete deletes the item; View opens the associated
application which shows the item; Done saves it in the Beamed
folder in Messages.
Bluetooth share
You can make it possible for other users to transfer items from
your P910a. To make an item accessible, select Send as >

Synchronization and backup
With Sony Ericsson PC Suite installed in your PC, your P910a
can synchronize with the following PC applications, also called
Personal Information Managers (PIMs):
• Lotus® Organizer® 5 & 6, 6.5
• Lotus Notes® 5.0, 6
• Microsoft Outlook 98, 2000, 2002, 2003
Note If you have imported SIM phonebook entries into Contacts
in your P910a, these entries will not be synchronized with the
corresponding entries in your PC when synchronizing your
P910a and PC. You will instead get duplicates in your P910a.
Local synchronization
• Microsoft Windows Address Book
Synchronization is divided into local and remote. Local
synchronization is performed directly to a connected PC while
remote synchronization is done over the air with a remote server
in, for example, a corporate network.
The manual describes the easiest way to perform the tasks but
you can also carry out most of them by selecting Start > Programs
> Sony Ericsson > P910a in the PC and then select the desired
command.
Refer to the online help find in Help in the menu bar in the PC
software to get more information about synchronization and
backup. You can also take a look on Global support area at
www.SonyEricsson.com/support

There are three types of Internet account:
Dial-Up:
For Dial-Up (CSD, Circuit Switched Data)
connections, you are charged for the length of
time that you are connected to the Internet.
High-Speed Dial-Up: For High-Speed Dial-Up (HSCSD, High Speed
Circuit Switched Data) connections you are
charged for the length of time you are
connected but you can increase the connection
speed so that information is transferred faster.
The service must be included in your
subscription and billing rates from your
network operator may increase as you increase
the connection speed.
GPRS :
For a GPRS connection you are charged for the
amount of information you view, download, or
send.
The dialog has two tabs: Accounts and Other.
Accounts tab
The Internet accounts dialog lists all the Internet accounts that
have been set up on your P910a.
You can add a New account to the list and Edit or Delete an

New
GPRS account
For some accounts you may need to make advanced settings,
provided by your ISP. Select Advanced and enter settings on the
tabs as described below
GPRS Advanced tabs
Log in
The settings on this tab deal with IP and DNS
addresses.
The DNS address uniquely identifies your Internet
Service Provider (ISP)'s computers, which your
P910a uses to connect to the Internet. Your P910a can
normally fetch these addresses automatically from
most ISPs.
If, after setting up an Internet account, you cannot
connect to the Internet and you suspect these
addresses are incorrect, ask your ISP for their
primary and secondary DNS addresses.
An IP address consists of four 3-digit boxes and valid
input is between 000 and 255 in each box.
Proxy
A proxy server is a computer connected between
your P910a and the computer you communicate with.
This arrangement can be used for connections to
Remote Sync servers, or within a company network.
If this setting is needed, your company's Information
Services department or Remote Sync provider must
give you instructions.
Other
If your ISP supports Point to Point Protocol (PPP)
extensions, you can select the Enable PPP extensions
check box. PPP extensions allow your P910a to
provide features such as encryption, which increases
the security of your Internet connection.
GPRS Advanced tabs
Server
User name and password
Normally, you do not have to enter a username and
password when you connect to a GPRS account.
However, some service providers may require you to
enter these details.
If you select the Username and password required
check box, but do not enter a username and
password, you will be prompted to enter these when
the P910a connects.

GPRS Advanced tabs
Authentication is used by some network operators to
identify the mobile phone connecting to their GPRS
network. There are different methods, or protocols,
for doing this.
Normal: PAP (Password Authentication Protocol).
The user's username and password are transmitted
over the network in an unencrypted form.
Secure: CHAP (Challenge Handshake
Authentication Protocol). The user's username and
password are never transmitted over the network.
None: No authentication is required by the network
operator.
QoS
Check with your network operator before changing
any of the QoS (Quality of Service) settings.
The settings Precedence, Delay, Peak rate, and Mean
rate are all by default set to Subscribed, which means
that your operators default QoS (Quality of Service)
values will apply. Reliability is set as Class 3 by
default.
New
Dial-Up or High-Speed Dial-Up account
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) supplies you with your User
name, your Password, and their Phone number, which your P910a
dials to connect to the Internet. If you have a High-Speed DialUp account with your network operator you can increase the
speed of your connection by making settings on the Speed tab
under Advanced.
158

Certificate manager
Digital certificates ensure that the Web or WAP pages you visit,
or any software you install, really are created by the person you
expect.
Certificates may be present on the pages that you view or the
software that you download. Your P910a compares these
certificates with a set of certificates that are stored in Certificate
manager to ensure the authenticity of the page or software. If the
certificates do not match, your P910a informs you, and gives
you the following choices:
• Prevent the page being loaded or the software being installed.
Preferred tab
• Continue at your own risk.
Select the check box to set a preferred WAP account. It will be
Internet
used when you use the Open page command in the

Security information
Type of certificate
Security information is displayed when Certificate manager
cannot be sure of the origin of the page or software. For
example, security information will be displayed if:
The type can be either User or Certificate Authority.
• The certificate on a page has expired.
• The identity of a software manufacturer cannot be verified.
Security information is also displayed when a certificate on your
P910a has:
• Expired.
• User certificates contain your identity. This type of certificate
is used when the server asks for client authentication. The
client application requests you to identify yourself by
choosing a user certificate.
• Certificate Authority certificates contain server details. This
type of certificate is handled by your P910a when the server
only requires server authentication. This means that your
identity remains anonymous.
• Been revoked by the independent organization that issued it.
Adding and deleting certificates
Your P910a handles certificates automatically so, most of the
time, you can browse the Internet securely without using
Certificate manager. If you do need to add or delete a certificate,
you will usually be informed by your network operator or
system administrator. You should delete a certificate from
Certificate manager if you are informed, or suspect, that:

some user-specific settings in the
When your P910a connects to a service provider, it will use a
GSM or GPRS network provided by a network operator. Many
network operators offer both GPRS and GSM services.
Service provider
The connection type defines which network your account uses
to connect to the Internet. GPRS Internet accounts use the GPRS
network, and Dial-Up Internet accounts use the GSM network.
You will need a service provider to connect your P910a to the
network.The service provider could be:
• An Internet Service Provider (ISP) which connects you to the
Internet.
• An access point provided by your network operator.
• A private service provider such as your company or your
bank.
You will need to enter specific service provider details into your
P910a to set up an Internet account. It can hold the details of
multiple service providers, for example, you may have separate
Internet and corporate accounts.
Your network operator or retailer may have pre-installed
services, check with them.
GPRS
If your network operator supports GPRS, a GPRS Internet
account allows you to:
• Remain permanently connected to the Internet without being
charged for connection time. With a GPRS account, you are
charged for the amount of information you view, download
or send when your are connected to the Internet. Check your
operator for details of your subscription.
• Avoid having to reconnect to the Internet if the connection is
broken.
Dial-Up
For both Dial-Up and High-Speed Dial-Up accounts, you are
charged for the length of time you are connected. If your
network operator supports them, you can increase your
connection speed (at a cost) by setting up a high-speed account.

Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
Please read this information before using your mobile phone.
Note Important: to avoid hearing impairment, answer call or lower volume before
placing this product to your ear.
Recommendations
• Always treat your product with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.
• Do not expose your product to liquid or moisture or humidity.
• Do not expose your product to extreme high or low temperatures.
• Do not expose your product to open flames or lit tobacco
products.
• Do not drop, throw or try to bend your product.
• Do not paint your product.
• Do not use your product near medical equipment without
requesting permission.
• Do not use your product when in, or around aircraft, or areas posted "turn off
two-way radio".
• Do not use your product in an area where a potentially explosive
atmosphere exists.
• Do not place your product or install wireless equipment in the
area above your car's air bag.
• Do not attempt to disassemble your product. Only Sony Ericsson
authorised personnel should perform service.
Antenna
Only use an antenna that has been specifically designed by Sony
Ericsson for your mobile phone. Use of unauthorised or modified
antennas could damage your mobile phone and may violate regulations, causing
loss of performance and SAR levels above the recommended limits (see below).
Efficient use
Hold your mobile phone as you would any other phone. Do not cover the top of the
phone when in use, as this affects call quality and may cause the phone to operate
at a higher power level than needed, thus shortening talk and standby times.
Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure and SAR
Your mobile phone is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is turned
on, it emits low levels of radio frequency energy (also known as radio waves or
radio frequency fields).
Governments around the world have adopted comprehensive international safety
guidelines, developed by scientific organizations, e.g. ICNIRP (International
Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) and IEEE (The Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.), through periodic and thorough
evaluation of scientific studies. These guidelines establish permitted levels of radio
wave exposure for the general population. The levels include a safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health, and to
account for any variations in measurements.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of measurement for the amount of radio
frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The SAR
value is determined at the highest certified power level in laboratory conditions,
but the actual SAR level of the mobile phone while operating can be well below
this value. This is because the mobile phone is designed to use the minimum power
required to reach the network.
Variations in SAR below the radio frequency exposure guidelines do not mean that
there are variations in safety. While there may be differences in SAR levels among
mobile phones, all Sony Ericsson mobile phone models are designed to meet radio
frequency exposure guidelines.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the
government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in

Driving
Please check if local laws and regulations restrict the use of mobile phones while
driving or require drivers to use handsfree solutions. We recommend that you use
only Ericsson or Sony Ericsson handsfree solutions intended for use with your
product. Please note that because of possible interference to electronic equipment,
some vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles
unless a handsfree kit with an external antenna supports the installation.
Always give full attention to driving and pull off the road and park before making
or answering a call if driving conditions so require.
Personal Medical Devices
Mobile phones may affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers and other
implanted equipment. Please avoid placing the mobile phone over the pacemaker,
e.g. in your breast pocket. When using the mobile phone, place it at the ear
opposite the pacemaker. If a minimum distance of 15 cm (6 inches) is kept
between the mobile phone and the pacemaker, the risk of interference is limited. If
you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, immediately turn
off your mobile phone. Contact your cardiologist for more information.
For other medical devices, please consult the manufacturer of the device.
Children
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH YOUR MOBILE
PHONE OR ITS ACCESSORIES. THEY COULD HURT
THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, OR COULD ACCIDENTALLY
DAMAGE THE MOBILE PHONE OR ACCESSORY. YOUR
MOBILE PHONE OR ITS ACCESSORY MAY CONTAIN
SMALL PARTS THAT COULD BE DETACHED AND CREATE A CHOKING
HAZARD.

Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use
Disposing of the Product
Your mobile phone should not be placed in municipal waste. Please
check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.
Power Supply
Connect the AC power adapter only to designated power sources as
marked on the product. Make sure the cord is positioned so that it will not be
subjected to damage or stress. To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug the unit
from any power source before attempting to clean it. The AC power adapter must
not be used outdoors or in damp areas. Never alter the cord or plug. If the plug will
not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Emergency Calls
Mobile phones operate using radio signals, which cannot guarantee connection
under all conditions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon any mobile
phone for essential communications (e.g. medical emergencies).
Emergency calls may not be possible on all cellular networks or when certain
network services and/or mobile phone features are in use. Check with your local
service provider.
Battery Use and Care
We recommend that you fully charge the battery before you use your mobile phone
for the first time. The battery should only be charged in temperatures between
+5°C (+41°F) and +45°C (+113°F).
A new battery or one that has not been used for a long time could have reduced
capacity the first few times it is used.
The talk and standby times depend on the actual transmission conditions when
using the mobile phone. If the mobile phone is used near a base station, less power
is required and talk and standby times are prolonged.
• Warning! May explode if disposed of in fire.
• Use only Ericsson or Sony Ericsson branded original batteries and
chargers intended for use with your mobile phone. Other
chargers may not charge sufficiently or may produce excessive
heat. Using other batteries and chargers could be dangerous.
• Do not expose the battery to liquid.
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
• Do not let the metal contacts on the battery touch another metal
object. This could short-circuit and damage the battery.
• Do not disassemble or modify the battery.
• Do not expose the battery to extreme temperatures, never above
+60°C (+140°F). For maximum battery capacity, use the battery
in room temperature.
• Turn off your mobile phone before removing the battery.
• Keep out of children's reach.
• Use the battery for the intended purpose only.
• Do not allow the battery to be put into the mouth. Battery
electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed.
Disposing of the battery
Please check local regulations for disposal of batteries or call your
local Sony Ericsson Customer Care Center for information.
The battery should never be placed in municipal waste. Use a
battery disposal facility if available.

LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS OR COMMERCIAL LOSS, TO THE FULL
EXTENT THOSE DAMAGES CAN BE DISCLAIMED BY LAW.
Some countries/states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, or limitation of the duration of implied warranties, so the
preceding limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
The warranty provided does not affect the consumer's statutory rights under
applicable legislation in force, nor the consumer's rights against the dealer arising
from their sales/purchase contract.
