SonyEricsson W960i Contact or Messaging related problems

datePosted on 14:40, April 24th, 2008 by yk

It was 1 month ago when I had my first brush with the SE W960i’s Messaging problem. As discovered then, the problem is related to the phone’s Contacts. After fiddling with it for a month, I finally found a permanent solution to the problem.

First of all, here are the possible symptoms of the Contact/Messaging problem:

  • Contact’s name and/or picture does not show when a call comes through
  • Contact’s name does not show in Messages
  • When trying to view some/all messages, an error message saying the message is incomplete and/or Access is denied is displayed on screen and the messages cannot be viewed.
  • When a voice command is added to a contact and the phone is rebooted, the above symptoms appear. However, if all voice commands are deleted and the phone rebooted, the above symptoms disappears
  • The cause of all the above symptoms is you have contacts saved in your SIM card. To fix the problems, remove all contacts from your SIM card and reboot your phone.
    To do this on the SonyEricsson W960i, go to Contacts -> More -> View folder -> SIM. After that, More -> Mark -> Mark all and then More -> Delete. Now all you have to do is reboot your phone and all your problems will be gone forever (hopefully).

    Outlook 2003 crashes on startup

    This morning Outlook gave me a big scare. Nope, it didn’t deliver a particularly nasty email, but it crashed as soon as it started. Here’s a look at the nasty error message:

    No amount of begging and coaxing would make Outlook start normally, so I started Outlook on Safe Mode and after it managed to start without error, ended it in hopes that it will fix whatever stuff that is wrong when the program quits. And guess what? It did.

    So, for anyone who encounters the above error, the first thing you can do before trying the myriad of troubleshooting suggestions found on the internet, give Outlook a chance to fix itself by starting it in Safe Mode. To start Outlook on Safe Mode go to Start -> RunĀ and type:
    outlook /safe
