Guys,

anyone here owned WM based mobiles here? i am fedup.

i am using Xperia and am fedup of the problems.

firstly..the apps crashed today..saying 'sorry the program crashed..report the error n blah blah blah.'

and then when i restarted the phone..it no longer recognizes my 4 digit password.. wth?????????

how can a phone forget the password?

also, i tried removing the battery ...shockingly...all data is lost and the password error is still there.

so its like my phone has become a brick..unless someone can help me.

oh well i fixed it!

all i had to do was remove and re-insert the battery and the RAM got clearer.

this was my first major bug since i got the Xperia.. i think the bug was triggered by excessive downloading i was doing on opera mobile..and most of the files i downloaded were incompatible on the phone.

anyway its fixed now.


the phones camera is really great for a smartphone which dont have good cams.. here are some pics i took recently:

Yep, people still whine about problems that aren't caused by the OS at all. Same as Windows anywhere.

Its usually not WM that bites, its the apps the provider includes. AT&T ROMs blow. So I've always used ROMs from XDA Developers on HTC phones.

#1 item that crashes on any of my HTC phones? Good Messaging. Now there is a POS.

I use a "clean" WM6.1 ROM for my HTC Vogue (Touch on CDMA).

WM6.1 is much improved over WM5/6, trust me on that. Especially now with the new "official" firmware update released. Enabled GPS, battery life has shot up dramatically and quite a bit faster/stabler.

ya man..i registered on XDA developers..they got a dedicated section for Sony Xperia..its got WM 6.1 btw.


tons of useful threads for me.

i installed a new onscreen keyboard of some HTC phone.. very good...one of the best virtual keyboard ported on a mobile phone imo.

I haven't actually used it yet, but price-point -> features wise, it owns, style wise it does not, but believe me, it does custom sprayed!

Can't wait to test it out Weds. Won't be able to put it away until Xmas though I don't think
