Laid back; chilled out.

Praise be! Mr. Ericsson is back! Allow me to explain:

My cellie has been acting weird for a while now. It all started while taking footage of my boy V^6 blasting his crazy-fast Vee-Dub down the dragstrip - the camera feature wouldn't work. Maybe the decibel levels, not to mention the hydrocarbons in the air, were to blame. I disassembled and reassembled Mr. Ericsson, threatened, cajoled, sweet-talked it to full functionality, all to no avail - the camera wouldn't work.

Well, today I had an epiphany. I went to Sony Ericsson's website and downloaded and installed the phone's latest firmware. But not before completely backing up my contacts and the texts I needed saved - I'm not a complete bonehead. I've done that before tho and lost all phone #s and stuff, but I know better now. Once bitten, twice shy, they say.

And would you know it, the phone's now good as new! Everything works as it should, and I wasted no time snapping away at anything in my sights. Like, this was during one of my breaks from work.

And this I took while in class tonight. Notice the [apparent] complexity of the subject matter; it can be rather difficult to absorb after a long workday.

But who cares - I finally have a camera of sorts! Still haven't replaced the 'real' camera, which is still sorely missed - and this will, meanwhile, make it all better.

Maybe, in my next life, I should be a photographer. Preferably, dear Vishnu, taking pics of swimsuit models all year long.

The camera is pretty much the only feature on my Chinese Nokia that actually works! Though i spotted Princess using the voice recorder and video feature with her pals recently ... I didn't even know it HAD a video feature **puzzled smile** I wonder if she can get the MP3 player to function, or the radio ;-)

Glad to see your phone is up and running again.
Glad our Update Service helped. It's funny how the "simple" things can sometimes solve big issues!

>CB: Chinese Nokia? From alibaba.com, perhaps? lol!
Dang, hope your MP3 feature works; I live off mine. And the radio. And the flashlight. And, of course, the camera.
& I feel u - my lil cuz knows more about my own phone than I do. I caught him doing something and was like: You can do that?

>SEA: That was easily one of the most painless updates I've ever had to do. And thanks for building a great phone. [W810i] Wish it had A2DP tho!

>KK: You're welcome! I was wondering whether you got the books; glad you're enjoying them.

>Anon: Uh, ok.
