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 phone book
information, among other things.
Before you use your P910i 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 P910i.
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 P910i. Insert the SIM card as shown in the picture.
Some subscriptions are limited to call only predefined numbers,
so-called Fixed Dialling Numbers (FDN). To avoid problems
when travelling 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 111.

Memory Stick
To insert the Memory Stick
Memory Sticks provide a convenient way of increasing the
storage space in your P910i. You can use both Memory Stick
Duo™ and Memory Stick PRO Duo™. Memory Sticks used in
P800 or P900 can be used in P910i but you cannot use a P910i
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:
2. Insert the Memory Stick in the
slot, with the connector side
towards the back (see picture).
Make sure it is securely
inserted. A click should be
heard.
• Storing backup copies of important files.
• Storing media for personalizing your P910i.
• Storing media for use when composing MMS messages.
• Storing installation files for new applications.
• Transferring data between the P910i and a PC or Mac.
• Providing storage for third-party applications.

stylus to release it. You hear a click as it jumps out of the slot.
Note Be careful not to drop the Memory Stick when removing it.
Renaming a Memory Stick
You can rename a Memory Stick to give it a name that is
meaningful to you. The name you set will be shown in the
divider between internal and external storage in the folder menu.

File manager > File > Format disk and
tap Rename.
Renaming will not erase any data.
Copying and moving data
For information on how to copy and move data to and from the
Memory Stick, refer to ‘Folders’ on page 29.
Formatting a Memory Stick
The phone stops working during the formatting and it can take
some time.
Note Do not remove a Memory Stick during the formatting. If
removed it will be unusable
Control Panel
If you need to reformat a Memory Stick, select
> 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 P910i 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.
Compatibility
The P910i 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 P910i 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 P910i (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 P910i is

connected to your PC, you also have access to the P910i folder
structure as well as other Memory Stick content in My P910i.
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 mouses. (Memory
Stick adapter required.)

Folders
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.
Folders are also used when managing files of different types on
your P910i and Memory Stick. You might want to move or copy
sound files into a sound track folder to store on a Memory Stick.
As you may notice, if you connect your P910i to a PC and view
the contents of your P910i in My P910i, it is easier to get an
overview of a folder and file structure on a large screen than on
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.
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.
Using the folder menu
In the applications that use folders you can see the folder menu
to the right in the menu bar.
When a Memory Stick is available in the P910i, 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.
In list view, there is a super-folder called All, which, when
Contacts, the All
selected, displays items from all folders (in
folder does not display the entries in the SIM phone book). All is
the default value in list views and when an application is first
launched.
For each application there is a default Unfiled folder. Since there
is no way of seeing on your P910i, whether a file in an Unfiled
folder is located on your P910i or on a Memory Stick, we
recommend that you move files to your own folders as soon as
possible.
Use the Edit Folders menu item to:
Every item created in an application is always assigned to a
single folder, by default the folder as displayed in the list view.
• To Add a new folder. Tap Add, enter a folder Name and choose
a Location from the list. Tap Done.
• Rename a folder, or move a folder to or from the Memory
Stick. Select the folder you want to move or rename, tap Edit,
type the name of the new folder, and choose a Location from
the list. Tap Done.

folders can be deleted.

Small, Medium or Large. From the menu bar, tap Edit > Zoom.
Automatic saving
When you work in an application and leave it, your work is
automatically saved.
Find
The Find function searches through all the items stored in an
application. The standard Find dialog contains a single text edit
box with two buttons, Find and Cancel. Selecting Find starts the
search, while Cancel closes the Find dialog.
In some applications, for example Messages, Find may be more
advanced:
• The size of each message is so large that you may want to
restrict the search to the current message only.
30
Getting to know your P910i
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
• Folders are potentially more significant, so you may want to

your files, you choose in which order you want the files to be
displayed on the screen. You can choose between sorting by, for
example type, size, date, or name.
Note Sort is not included in all applications.
Sending and receiving items
• Bluetooth wireless technology: the P910i will search the
local area for Bluetooth devices that are set to be visible.
These will be presented in a list. Select a device to which the
item is to be sent and select Send. Progress messages will tell
you when the information has been transferred.
From many applications it is possible to exchange items like
appointments, contacts and images.
Tip The other devices must have Bluetooth wireless technology
enabled. You can select Refresh to perform a new search if, for
example, a destination device was not enabled at first.

P910i locks
Use the SIM card lock and the device lock to protect your SIM
card and your P910i 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 P910i.
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
SIM card lock
You cannot change the PUK code.
The SIM card lock protects your SIM card, not the P910i,
against unauthorized use. It is unlocked by the PIN and PUK
codes which you receive from your service provider.
PIN2
Some functions on the SIM card can be protected by a
secondary code feature. Some SIM cards do not have a PIN2
lock.
You can choose to have to unlock the SIM card every time you
turn the P910i 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 P910i
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.
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
SIM card will be disabled and you need to contact your network
operator.
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 P910i and the data in it against
unauthorized use.
If the device lock is set to When SIM changed, it means that the
P910i is not normally locked. However, if the SIM has been
changed, the P910i asks you to enter the code to unlock the
P910i before you can use it. This means that if someone steals
your P910i and puts another SIM card into it, they will not be
able to use it.
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 P910i. You can
change the device lock code to any four to eight digit personal
code.
The default device lock code is 0000.

Note When using the screen saving device lock, make sure you

P910i will be unprotected after Power on, until the screen saver
goes on.
Note You will not be able to browse the contents of your P910i

Solitaire
Solitaire is a card game played with a standard deck of 52 cards
and up to 4 Jokers.
The purpose of Solitaire is to remove all the cards from the piles
to the layout card while scoring as many points as possible.
Games
89
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
Points are awarded for playing pile cards and bonus points are
awarded for unbroken, ascending or descending runs of four or
more rank cards.
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.
Rules
When the game starts, 35 cards are dealt from the deck into
7 piles of 5 cards. A further card is then dealt face up from the
layout card.
• Cards can only be played from the bottom of the piles.
• To play a pile card it must have a face value of one more or
one less than the layout card.
• 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.
Play Solitaire
Solitaire is only available with the flip open.
1. Select the icon for Solitaire.

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 centre. 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 P910i 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 P910i.
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 P910i.
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.
Messages

This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
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 P910i. 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 179.
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.

Remote folders
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 168.) 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 102.
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.
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
command to download messages from the folders you have
subscribed to.
An asterisk next to an account indicates that a message has
arrived since you last opened the accounts inbox.
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 P910i as a text message.
If you leave the message before sending it, it will automatically
be stored in the Draft folder (unless you edit a message which
was already located in Outbox).

MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages can include
pictures, animations and sound, organized like a slide
presentation with time-based control of the playback.
Composing a multimedia message is like building a small slide
presentation. A typical page will consist of a picture, some text
and sound. Refer to Technical data, section ‘MMS’ on page 206
for supported file types that you can add.

You can take a picture with the CommuniCorder and send it as a
multimedia message using the Send as command from Pictures.
Multimedia messages can be sent to a mobile phone or an email
account.
How a recipient receives an MMS you send depends on your
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.
Your P910i can help you to create messages which conform to
standard and therefore are more likely to reach recipients. Set
the Content alert to warn or restrict you. See “MMS Advanced
settings tabs” on page 171.
Tip To enter several addresses manually (without using
Contacts) in a text message, multimedia message or in an email:

Disconnecting and connecting
If your P910i is already connected to the Internet when you send
an email, it will remain connected after sending it. If your P910i
is not connected before sending an email, it will connect and
send the message, and then disconnect.
Note You can send text messages while connected to the
Internet. If your connection is CSD or HSCSD it must be
disconnected before you can make or receive a phone call.
If your connection is GPRS, it may be suspended to enable a
phone call to be made or received. You may need to repeat the
data activity (Web page fetch, get email) after the call has
ended.
If your P910i cannot connect to the email account, automatic
download will fail, and
will be displayed next to the email
account.
A scheduled download will fail if your P910i is engaged in a
voice call. It may fail if it is connected to another ISP, that is,
through a different Internet account than specified for the email
account.
If email messages are not downloaded because a scheduled
download fails, they will be downloaded during the next
successful connection.

More about messaging
Finding messages
In both the list of accounts and list of messages, Find searches
through the subject lines, senders’ details, the text of the
message.
In an open message, Find searches through the text of the

If the flip is closed you will see an error message.
Mark read and unread
Use commands on the Edit menu to mark your received

Saving contact details
When you receive a message, you can save the contact details of
the person who sent you the message.
To save the sender’s details
On the message’s
address tab, select From.
Note If you save an address from an email message
synchronized from your company PC, the corporate version of
the address, rather than the full Internet email address, will be
saved to Contacts. If the corporate version of the address is not
an Internet address (an X.400 address, or just the sender's
name, for example), you can use it to send email from your
synchronized account, but you cannot use it in email that you
send directly from your P910i.
Connecting and disconnecting from the
Internet
To disconnect from the Internet
1. Select the connection icon (HSCSD/CSD
in the status bar.
or GPRS
)
If your service provider or network is
unavailable
Sometimes a message cannot be sent because your P910i cannot
connect to a network. Please check that the Messaging Account
and Internet Account information in the Control Panel is correct.
If you have both GPRS and Dial-Up Internet accounts, try
sending the email message using an account of the other type.
GPRS Internet accounts use the GPRS network and Dial-Up
Internet accounts use the GSM network.
Synchronized email
When you set up a synchronization with your PC, an account for
synchronized email messages is automatically created on your
P910i and indicated by
. You can have more than one
account for synchronized email, but only one per PC. If you
send an email as PC mail, the mail will be sent via the PC when
you have synchronized your P910i with the PC.
If you set up a POP or IMAP account which accesses the same
mail server, the two accounts will contain the same messages.
Note that there is no connection between the accounts; the
copies in each account are separate.
2. Select Disconnect from the pop-up menu
3. The dialog Do you want to disconnect from Internet?, Yes/No
appears.
4. Select Yes.

also be used in the P910i.
This chapter also applies to other types of software to install, for

Installing applications
Installation files in SIS format are typically used for installation
of Epoc or PersonalJava™ applications or other content into the
P910i 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 P910i supports
cryptographic verification of vendor identity.
During installation the P910i 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
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.

Connecting to other devices
Your P910i can be connected to other devices with similar
interfaces such as PCs, other P910is and handheld computers.
The connection can be made via:
• Bluetooth wireless technology (not together with
Windows 98)
PC connectivity software
Your P910i is delivered with a CD, Sony Ericsson PC Suite. This
software must be installed in the PC you want to connect to. See
‘Installing applications’ on page 140 for more information. You
do not need to install the Sony Ericsson PC Suite if you only want
to perform beaming with the PC or use a cordless headset.
• Cable
• Infrared (IrDA)
Note Bluetooth wireless technology and infrared transmitting
are rather power consuming. Do not have them on more than
necessary.
Depending on the type of connection you have chosen, you can
use your P910i to perform various tasks, for example:
• Sending and receiving files via infrared or Bluetooth wireless
technology – ‘beaming’.
• Making Backup/Restore and Synchronization of your data
and file transfer (cable, infrared and Bluetooth wireless
technology).
You can even use your P910i as a modem for Dial-Up
Networking using cable, infrared and Bluetooth wireless
technology. With Bluetooth wireless technology, you can for
example, connect a cordless headset.
Connection via SyncStation
Connect the SyncStation to your PC with the USB cable. A
wizard helps you to install the USB cable the first time. The
Sony Ericsson PC Suite CD contains the necessary software.
Put your P910i in the SyncStation. A new wizard starts which
helps you to connect your P910i if this is the first time.

Connection via Infrared port
When connecting via the infrared port, make sure that both
devices are placed within one metre from each other and that the
infrared ports have a free line of sight between them.
Both your P910i and the device you connect to must have their
infrared ports activated before communication can begin.
To activate the infrared port on the P910i
1. Go to Control panel > Connections > Infrared.
2. Set the P910i to PC connect or Modem as required.
3. Set the port state to On or On for 10 minutes.
You can also change the infrared port state with the flip closed,
in the Connections application.

Send and receive
You can send items via the infrared port, beam, in any
application if there is a Send as command. To send, select
Infrared. If you receive a beamed item, 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.
Connection via Bluetooth
wireless technology
You can connect your P910i 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 P910i can stay in your pocket
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
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 metres. 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 P910i and the other device.
This process is called pairing (other documentation may refer to
it as bonding). The paired devices are remembered by your
P910i 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 P910i.
Activating Bluetooth wireless technology
Activate Bluetooth wireless technology on your P910i in Control
panel > Connections > Bluetooth > Settings. Set Bluetooth to On, and
set if your P910i should be Visible to other devices or not. See
‘Bluetooth’ on page 161 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 P910i flashes blue.
Pairing
To let your P910i 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 P910i 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.
– Non-paired devices that are within range are shown with
their names in italics.
– Devices that are within range but unknown are shown
with a preset name.
4. Select the device you want your P910i 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 146.
5. If in the future you want to allow a paired device to connect
to your P910i 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.

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 P910i
1. Check that the device you want to pair with your P910i:
– Is on and within range.
– Has its Bluetooth function activated and that it is in
visible mode.

Passcodes
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.

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
P910i uses to connect to the Internet. Your P910i 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 P910i 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.

If your ISP supports Point to Point Protocol (PPP)
extensions, you can select the Enable PPP extensions
check box. PPP extensions allow your P910i to
provide features such as encryption, which increases
the security of your Internet connection.
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.

WAP accounts
Use these settings to set up and manage WAP accounts on your
P910i.
WAP accounts are intended for multimedia messages and for
accessing the Internet through a WAP gateway. (Such gateways
make use of proxy port 9200-9203.) All other proxy settings
should be included in your Internet accounts.
For security reasons, some WAP pages and services, for
example online banking, can only be accessed from a particular
WAP account.
Note You access WAP pages through an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) so, when you create a WAP account, you must
choose one of your existing Internet accounts or first create a
new one.
To create a new WAP account
1. Enter the name of the WAP account.
2. Select the Internet account you want to use. Preferred
indicates the account set as preferred in the Internet setup.
3. If you are going to use a WAP gateway or a proxy, select the
Use Proxy check box.
4. Enter the Address of the gateway or proxy.
5. Enter the Port of the gateway or proxy.

Security information
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 certificate on a page has expired.
• The identity of a software manufacturer cannot be verified.
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 P910i 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 P910i informs you, and gives you
the following choices:
• Prevent the page being loaded or the software being installed.
• Continue at your own risk.
The certificates on your P910i have been created and issued by
an independent organization that ensures their authenticity.
174
Control panel
Security information is also displayed when a certificate on your
P910i has:
• Expired.
• Been revoked by the independent organization that issued it.
Adding and deleting certificates
Your P910i 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:
• The certificate does not belong to the person who supplied it.
• The certificate was issued incorrectly by the independent
organization that created it.
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
Type of certificate
The type can be either User or Certificate Authority.
• 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.
When you format a disk, you delete all the information on it,
including any applications that you may have installed. You also
delete all information placed on it by other devices (these
folders are hidden except in File Manager).
IP Security manager
• Certificate Authority certificates contain server details. This
type of certificate is handled by your P910i when the server
only requires server authentication. This means that your
identity remains anonymous.
The IP security manager displays stored policies and only one
policy can be activated at a time.This is used for secure
connections over the Internet, typically to a corporate intranet. If
needed, your company information services department will
supply the necessary information.
Flip settings
There are two types of passwords needed:
Flip keyboard - Specify the keyboard your P910i has on the inside
of the flip.
Enable virtual flip - Select
the check box to use of the Virtual flip
when the flip of your P910i has been removed.
Format disk
This dialog primarily lets you rename and format any Memory
Stick that you install in your P910i. Your P910i comes with one
Memory Stick.
• IP security password: is to be set when activating the very

some user-specific settings in the
When your P910i 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 P910i 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
P910i 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 airbag.
• Do not attempt to disassemble your product. Only Sony Ericsson authorized
personnel should perform any service.
Antenna
Only use an antenna that has been specifically designed by Sony Ericsson for your
mobile phone. Use of unauthorized 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.
192
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
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.
A separate leaflet with SAR information for this mobile phone model is included
with the material that comes with this mobile phone. This information can also be
found, together with more information on radio frequency exposure and SAR, on:
www.SonyEricsson.com.
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 Sony Ericsson handsfree solutions intended for use with your product. Please
note that because of possible interference with other equipment, some vehicle
manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles unless a handsfree
kit with an external antenna supports the installation.
This is the Internet version of the user’s guide. © Print only for private use.
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 ACCESSORIES. YOUR MOBILE PHONE AND ITS ACCESSORIES MAY CONTAIN
SMALL PARTS THAT COULD BE DETACHED AND CREATE A CHOKING
HAZARD.
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 the 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 can 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.
A rechargeable battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times. However, it will eventually wear out – this is not a defect. When the talk-time or
standby time is noticeably shorter, it is time to replace your battery. Sony Ericsson
recommends that you use only batteries and chargers approved by Sony Ericsson.
• Warning! May explode if disposed of in fire.
• Use only 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.
• 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, and 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.
Guidelines for safe and efficient use

• Keep out of the reach of children.
• 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 Centre for information.
The battery should never be placed in municipal waste. Use a battery disposal facility if available.

VPN
Virtual Private Network. A private network that is configured
within a public network. A VPN appear as private national or
international network to the customer, but physically shares a
backbone trunk with other customers. VPNs enjoy the security
of a private network via access control and encryption, while
taking advantage of the economies of scale and built-in
management facilities of large public networks. Today, there is
tremendous interest in VPNs over the Internet, especially due to
the constant threat of hacker attacks.
