SIM card

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.

Battery

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.

Insertion and removal

A PIN (Personal Identity Number) code is supplied with the SIM card from your operator and must be entered when switching on the P910i.

To insert the battery

1. Ensure that the flip is closed.

2. Remove the battery cover by sliding it downwards.

3. Place the battery in the battery compartment and close the cover.

Open the battery cover by pressing sligthly 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 106.

To remove the battery

1. Ensure that your P910i is turned off.

Note It is important that you always turn off your P910i before

removing the battery. Failure to do so can result in loss of information.

2. Remove the battery cover by sliding it downwards.

3. Use your fingernail at the lower left-hand edge of the battery to gently lift the lower edge of the battery outwards.

4. Take out the battery.

12 Getting to know your P910i

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

Charging the battery

• When the battery needs to be charged, a beep is heard. The indicator light (on the top of your P910i) flashes red and a battery low message appears on the screen.

• The battery can be charged whenever you want. The P910i performance is not affected. However, using your P910i while charging increases the charging time.

To charge the battery

The P910i can be charged either when it is switched on or off.

4. Wait approximately 4 hours or until the battery meter on the screen is full and the indicator on the top of the P910i shows a steady green light.

5. Remove the charger by tilting the plug upwards.

Tip You can also use other battery chargers that have been

supplied with other Sony Ericsson mobile phones using the same connector plug, for example, T300 or P900.

1. Make sure the battery is inserted in your P910i and the cover is closed.

2. Connect the charger to the P910i at the base of the phone by the flash symbol. The charger plug flash symbol must face upwards.

3. Connect the charger to the mains.

Charging is indicated by the battery icon on the screen pulsing continuously, and the indicator at the top of the P910i showing a steady red light (or green, if the P910i is switched on).

See also ‘Battery Use and Care’ on page 185.

Note When the battery is completely discharged, or new, it may

take up to 30 minutes before the battery icon appears on the screen.

Care instructions

Your P910i is a highly sophisticated electronic device. To get the most out of it, please make sure that you follow this advice:

• Keep the P910i in its protective carry case when not using it.

• Use a lightly moistened cloth when you clean the screen.

• Use only the stylus provided to tap the screen.

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 P910i. 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:

• 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.

Note Insert the Memory Stick correctly to avoid damage to your

P910i or the Memory Stick.

The Memory Stick supplied with the P910i may or may not be a version that contains the lock function. Remember, you can overwrite existing files without the lock function.

To remove the Memory Stick

Press the edge of the Memory Stick using your fingernail or the 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.

See ‘Folders’ on page 28. There are two ways to rename a

Memory Stick:

To insert the Memory Stick

1. Open the cover for the Memory

Stick slot.

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.

• Select

Control Panel > Other > Format disk

and tap

Rename

.

See ‘Format disk’ on page 167.

• Select

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 28.

22 Getting to know your P910i

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.

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.

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 P910i uses the shorter Memory Stick variants, Memory

Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo.

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

.

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.

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.)

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.

General functions

Application launcher views

In flip open, the P910i can present the applications in two ways:

• List view (small icons appear in one column)

• Icon view (large icons appear in two columns)

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.

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

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.

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.

Inserting symbols

There are a number of ways to insert symbols with the P910i keyboard.

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.

• Press the or keys to show additional symbols in the pre-edit box in the title area.

• Use the to access the coloured 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 P910i has.

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

.

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.

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.

Note You can usually make an emergency call without

unlocking the P910i.

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

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 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.

To activate the device lock

1. Select

Control panel > Device > Locks.

2. Select a lock option.

3. Select

.

You can choose to have the P910i 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 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

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

Phone

The Phone application is easy for the beginner, yet powerful for the advanced user. It can be used together with the other functions of the P910i, including applications from developers outside Sony Ericsson.

The phone includes useful features such as:

• Personalized ring types.

• Picture phone book.

• Quick access back to the entries in Contacts, making it easy to try an alternative number or send a message if the contact is unavailable or busy.

• Voice-dialling – make a call by saying the contact’s name.

• Voice answer – an incoming call may be answered or sent a busy signal, using the words recorded for ‘answer’ and

‘busy’.

• Incoming call acceptance limit – specify those who should be able to reach you.

• Access to other applications while talking on the phone.

• Office handsfree (speakerphone) which starts when you open the flip, making it easy to access applications such as

Calendar and Jotter while talking.

• Flight mode which enables the P910i to be used as a PDA in situations where radio transmitters may not be used. The

GSM and Bluetooth transmitters (and receivers) are switched off.

With the flip closed you can access most of the functions using the Jog Dial and the keypad. More advanced tasks such as handling a conference calls or using other applications during a call are best handled with the flip open.

Some options may be hidden or not available depending on your subscription.

Using corporate phone service

To place an internal call, dial an internal (short) number or an external (long) number. The phone sets up the call through the corporate switch, so that during the call you can utilize all corporate features like call back, interrogation, conference and switchboard operator services. When dialling an external number, you do not need to dial the external line prefix; it is added automatically.

Note When travelling abroad, use your phone as a normal GSM

phone, entering

Phone > Edit > Preferences> Calling Cards

and set the calling card to

Call directly

.

When storing numbers in Contacts you should use the international number format, starting with

+

. This allows you to use Contacts when you are outside the corporate telephony environment, when you are abroad, and when you are sending

SMS or MMS messages.

Incoming calls via the PBX may be routed to the P910i as well as to your desk phone, and you can answer in either telephone.

When talking on the P910i, you may hand over the call to the desk phone by calling that phone, answering it and hanging up the P910i. You can also hand over a call from the desk phone to your P910i.

Configuring corporate phone service

Your corporate phone administrator can program feature buttons, call routing, and commands in your phone via a settings file. Contact him to receive a user guide valid for the company and the configuration file, either via email or down load from the intranet.

See “Corporate phone services” on page 57 on how to install

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.

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 171.

To save an email message to Outbox

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.

Installing applications

It is possible to install new applications in your P910i. These applications can be obtained in several ways, for example:

• from the Internet.

• from a CD.

• from a Memory Stick.

• as an email attachment.

• from other devices.

There are two types of installation files for applications:

• SIS (Symbian Standard Installation) made for P910i or other

Sony Ericsson 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 P910i.

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 P910i.

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.

Installing applications on your

P910i

Installation file security

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

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.

4. Select target drive (phone memory or Memory Stick).

Download to the P910i begins.

5. Installation starts when the download is complete.

From the P910i

Program packages, for example, games, can also be downloaded to your P910i from the Internet or from a Memory Stick. When downloading a file from the Internet, the installation will start automatically when the file is completely downloaded to your

P910i. The procedure below describes installation of application packages transferred to the P910i but not yet installed.

See ‘To download and upload files, for example, applications’ on page 80 for information about how to download files from

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)

• Cable

• Infrared (IrDA)

Note To save the battery, turn off Bluetooth wireless technology

and infrared when you do not need them.

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.

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 131 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.

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 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 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 P910i flashes blue.

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.

Personalizing your P910i

There are a number of ways you can give your P910i a personal touch and change its settings to suit your requirements.

Themes

Themes control the colour of screen and text, the icons, and the background picture, the wallpaper. Sound themes control the notification alerts. Some themes are pre-loaded in the P910i.

Extra themes can be found on the Content and Application CD where you also can use the themes editor to modify the themes or create new ones.

To change the theme, select

Control panel > Device > Themes

, see

‘Themes’

on page 151

.

Setting a background picture

You can change the background image (wallpaper) for the standby screen in

Control panel > Device > Display.

You can use any image stored internally or on a Memory Stick.

Tip More background images can be found on the Multimedia

P910i CD, delivered with your P910i.

You can obtain suitable background picture files by downloading, MMS, beaming using Bluetooth or infrared, or transferring them using a cable from your PC.

Background picture images are 208 x 144 pixels and the picture can be seen in the standby screen. (Any chosen picture will be scaled to fit the screen). The images can be JPEG, GIF, BMP,

WBMP, MBM or PNG format.

Changing your application shortcuts

You can change and rearrange the five shortcuts to applications, shown in the standby screen when the flip is closed, and the five first shortcuts in the Application picker area in flip open (not the

Application launcher ). The flip closed shortcuts can even be hidden, if you wish.

Setting the light intensity

You can set the maximum and minimum display light intensity.

This is useful to save the battery or protect your night sight

when driving a car. See “Power tab” on page 148.

Setting a screen saver

You can set a screen saver picture to be displayed after a period

of inactivity. See ‘Display’ on page 147. Keylock and device

lock may be used in combination with the screen saver. When you press a key or touch the screen, you will be prompted to activate keys and/or enter the device lock code.

If your network operator provides a CLI (Calling Line Identity) service, your P910i can display the contact’s picture together with the other information when an incoming call is received with a CLI matching that contact (not all numbers can be displayed). The contact’s picture is also displayed when you make a call to that person.

The images can be JPEG, GIF (including animated), BMP,

WBMP, MBM or PNG format. Image format for the screen saver is 208 x 320 pixels.

Note Using animated GIF uses more power.

To choose the contact’s picture size

1. Select

Phone > Edit >Preferences > Incoming call picture

.

2. Select the

Show large pop-up picture for incoming calls

check box.

3. Tap

Ring signals

Your P910i can play both iMelody format and polyphonic ring signals in WAV, AU, AMR, MIDI, RMF, and MP3 sound file formats. When you choose a ring signal, your P910i will scan the internal and Memory Stick storage and present you with a list of ring signals that are in these formats. Recordings you have made using Sound Recorder can also be selected.

Ring signals can be added by downloading from the Internet, beaming using infrared or Bluetooth wireless technology file transfer from a PC and by using a Memory Stick. Extra ring signals can be found on the Content and Application CD. You

Personalizing your P910i 145

can add as many ring signals as desired, subject only to available storage space.

Tip Sound Recorder recordings are listed as voicenote and a

number, for example voicenote1470.

A ring signal may be selected for an entry in Contacts, so that the caller can be identified by the ring signal that is played. See

‘To personalize the ring melody for a contact’ on page 105.

Note The mobile network must provide the CLI (Calling Line

Identity) of the caller to enable the contact to be identified.

You may change the default ring signal that is played in all other

cases. To do this, see ‘Sounds and alerts’ on page 149.

Note If your P910i finds that you have renamed, moved or

deleted a ring signal, it will play the default instead.

Tasks

Set a sound for reminder alarms. See ‘Preferences’ on page 113.

Messages

Set a different sound for each type of message as notification of a new message:

See ‘Sounds and alerts’ on page 149.

Note If you use an audio file as alarm or notification signal, it

will be played using the Multimedia volume setting. The ring volume setting will not effect the sound volume.

Internet accounts

You access the Internet using an Internet Service Provider (ISP), who supplies you with account details including: a username, a password, and the phone number or Web site address that your

P910i automatically uses to access the Internet. You need to set up an Internet account before you can:

• Access Web pages and download multimedia messages.

• Set up an email account to send and receive email messages.

Tip A simple way of setting up an Internet 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.

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.

GPRS

:

The service must be included in your subscription and billing rates from your network operator may increase as you increase the connection speed.

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.

Control panel 155

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

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 P910i connects.

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

Other

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

QoS

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.

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 P910i dials to connect to the Internet. If you have a High-Speed Dial-

Up account with your network operator you can increase the speed of your connection by making settings on the

The Other tab

The other tab contains all settings that are not related to the device or connections. This is also where settings from system components and add-ons, developed by third-party developers, will be found.

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.

Security information is also displayed when a certificate on your

P910i has:

• Expired.

• Been revoked by the independent organization that issued it.

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.

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.

166 Control panel

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

.

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).

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 P910i when the server only requires server authentication. This means that your identity remains anonymous.

IP Security manager

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

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.

There are two types of passwords needed:

IP security password: is to be set when activating the very first policy, that is, this password is only set once, but it is possible to change it later at any time by tapping the

Password button.

Activation password: is needed when a policy is activated for the first time and the supplier of the policy gives this.

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.

Language selection

Secure tokens

If you need access to a network that requires secure access

(often known as ‘strong authentication’), for example a corporate intranet, you can set up the Internet account you use to log in to that network to use secure access and generate the required one-time password when you make the connection.

Your P910i supports the following secure access systems:

Master reset

Use

check box.

• SecureID from RSA

• SafeWord from Secure Computing

It is also possible to add other access systems through thirdparty software.

If you have a separate device or application that requires onetime passwords according to one of these systems, you do not need a separate hardware token generator (Hard Token). Your

P910i can generate passwords that are not associated with an

Internet account.

You manage secure access in your P910i using Secure Tokens.

Each token is associated with one vendor/system and may be associated with one or more Internet accounts (or none, when

Getting started with Internet and Messages

Introduction

Before you can use

Internet

and

Messages

to access the

Internet and send or receive messages, you will need to make some user-specific settings in the

Control Panel

.

Service provider

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.

Connection type

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.

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.

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.

Automatically set up service provider and messaging

The easiest way to set up your P910i is automatically, through your service provider.

Accepting new Internet or Messages settings

New phone set-up messages will appear in the

Auto setup

account inbox of

Messages.

(Phone set-up messages for email accounts will, however, be found in your

SMS message

inbox.)

For

Messages

settings your P910i supports automatic setup of:

• email accounts

• MMS message (Multimedia Messaging Service) settings.

When an phone set-up message appears, select it.

A dialog with a brief text and operator message appears on the screen. You can accept the new settings or leave the message in the inbox

.

Check your service provider's Web site for information or contact their support desk and ask about automatic remote phone set-up of ISP (Internet Service Provider) settings, email and MMS message settings.

If remote phone set-up is possible, they will send you the phone set-up messages required by SMS message.

If the name of the new account is the same as that of an existing account you can choose to create a new account with the same name or replace the existing account.

Note Never accept remote phone set-up messages if you are not

expecting them or are unsure where they have come from.

Settings valid for your network operator and one or more of these services may also be available through the phone setupmessage generator at www.SonyEricsson.com/support

Using your P910i as a modem

Your P910i contains a complete GSM/GPRS modem, so you can use it to connect your PC to the Internet or corporate intranet.Your P910i appears to the laptop like a normal modem.

You link the laptop to your P910i using Bluetooth wireless technology, infrared, or cable (USB or serial).The connection over the air can be by any of the bearers that your P910i supports:

• GPRS

• HSCSD (High-speed Circuit Switched Data)

• CSD (Circuit Switched Data).

Manually set up a WAP account

Instead of setting up a WAP account automatically, you can enter the settings manually from

Control panel > Connections >

Networking) entries on your PC for GPRS and HSCSD connections.

Once paired with a Bluetooth-enabled laptop, your P910i is ready to make a connection to the Internet or corporate network.

Since Bluetooth is wire-free and requires no line-of-sight alignment, you can place the laptop in a comfortable position and let your P910i remain in your pocket, briefcase, or even be placed up to 10 metres away.

If you wish to use an infrared link, the range is typically up to one metre. The two infrared ports must be kept in line of sight, at an angle of no more than approximately 30 degrees.

The Dial-Up Networking Wizard

The wizard simplifies creating GPRS DUN connections by setting the proper values in the PC DUN entry and linking the entry to one of the GPRS configurations in your P910i. You can also view and modify the GPRS settings in the P910i.

For HSCSD DUN entries, the wizard updates the modem settings such that the specified data rate and type of bearer

(ISDN / Analogue) will be used when you make a DUN connection.

You can view or change the DUN entries created with the wizard using the standard Windows DUN user interface.

The Dial-Up Networking Wizard software included in the Sony

Ericsson PC Suite must be installed in your PC and your P910i must be connected to the PC via cable, infrared or Bluetooth

wireless technology. See ‘Connecting to other devices’ on page 134.

Make sure that you have any information concerning, for example, phone numbers, names of servers or domains, that the server that you want to connect to may require.

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.

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 Ericsson or Sony Ericsson handsfree solutions intended for use with your product. Please note that because of possible interference with other equipment,

184 Guidelines for safe and efficient use

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

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

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 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.

• 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.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use 185

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

• 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.
