How to synchronise K700i?

Postby Goethe » Sat, 19 Aug 2006 10:54 am

Can any kindly give a step-by-step guide to synchronise the Sony Ericsson K700i? I've gone through the manual and installed the PC suite, but every time I try to create a new account, I'm being asked for the server address, and I don't know what that is. I've tried to contact Sony Ericsson but no one ever picks up the phone. Please help!

There are 2 types of synchronization:

1. OTA synchronization with your work account over the internet

2. Direct synchronization with your PC


You will only be asked for an account if you're trying the first way, since you need to connect via GPRS to your company's corporate server, which needs to have remote synchronization support.

I'm guessing you're trying the second way? That's even easier, and is explained in detail in the manual.

Exactly what steps are you trying to do on your phone and PC? List them down exactly so I can see where you're going wrong.

Please try to use proper spelling. What's wrong with typing "know"? It's even got the same number of letters as the singlish "knoe". :P

Anyway, what phone are you using? What folder are you trying to copy to? Is it really an MP3, or is it a WMA?

Hi Bremen,

First of all, I installed the PC suite. After that, I went to "Synchronisation" under "Conectivity" in my phone. I was prompted to give a server address, server username as well as password. When I tried to ignore and save the account, I would be given the error message "URL missing". The shortcut "My Phone" on my desktop is always showing not connected even after I have activated my Bluetooth device. The manual says that I have to input a server address, but I understand that this should not be the case from my friends who use Nokia. I've also tried on several occasions to contact Sony Ericsson but they have not returned my phone messages or emails once. Did I go wrong somewhere? I'm really puzzled. Please kindly point out where I went wrong, thanks!

Nokia is much, much worse than SE at synchronization. ;)

Ok, try the reverse... don't go for synchronization through the phone, since that's designed for remote/OTA synchronization (what i described earlier). Rather, try this:

1. Just activating the bluetooth device is not enough. You need to connect the computer to the phone. This is covered in page 68 or the "bluetooth" section of your manual. You need to make sure that your phone's bluetooth is switched on and discoverable, then you can pair it to your computer. This is common for ALL bluetooth devices, btw.

2. Go to Start -> All programs -> SonyEricsson -> Sync Station and you can select the settings and synchronize there.

Might I suggest that you drop out to the web and download the latest version of Nokia's PC Suite? Cured all my problems with my N80.

The K700i is a SonyEricsson phone, not a Nokia.

The SE phones tend to be a bit tricky with anything other than usb cable connection.
Goethe>>> The only thing you have to do on the phone is to pair it with your PC ..presuming of course you are using bluetooth.
In my blue tooth places go to discover devices thewn search for the phone. It will send a confirmation code to the phone ( you have to type it ion on the pc and then confirm by typing the same in on the phone) once paired sync should work.
I am a bit confused with the "PC suite" i thought that was for Nokia...as far as i know the Sony soft ware is called sync station ????
Anyway you can download the latest from SE Singapore.

If you get stuck post more details here for more help

Pc Suite is actually made by Symbian and rebadged by Nokia and SE for their Symbian phones. The SE one for the SE OS is called "Sync Station".

1. Learn English.
2. Learn how to say "please".
2. Learn how to use google, yahoo auctions and GO TO A CELLPHONE FORUM.
