    Hi all

    I got a T610 a couple of weeks ago. Nice phone - but my main problem
    with it is its hair-trigger dialup. Push the joystick upwards, and it
    starts loading. The same with various other commands. I'm getting a bit
    sick of pressing cancel the whole time - is there any way to disable its
    relentless urge to connect?

    Thanks

    Bella

    Depends how it's set up: on Orange ones, the joystick-up just loads a
    locally-stored xHTML page and starts the browser, so it's not really
    _connecting_ until you click on one of the links on that page. I must admit,
    I've had one for nearly a year now, and I haven't found this a problem;
    occasionally I go _down_ rather than click _in_ when trying to invoke the
    main menu, but that's about it. But no, I'm sure there are no menu settings
    to change any of this. Admit it, Bella, you want a "Keyboard and Mouse"
    panel in System Preferences, don't you ;-)

    Bestest,
    M.

    Erm, not on either my or partner's Orange T610s... Both of those instantly
    get "Loading". Just the same as the top right side button.

    Actually, you've got a point there (tho I'm with Vodafone). I don't
    think you get charged the moment it dials up - you have to download
    something, AIUI. But still annoying.

    I thought not... :-(

    Now there's an idea - like a delay type thing. I suppose I could put
    some Blue Tack just above the joystick. Might spoil the effect,
    though... :-)

    I can only get "left" to obey the first shortcut item, the rest are
    permanant.

    On my t610 on T-Mobile (US), up goes into contact list. Maybe if you could
    find a repair shop that could flash it with straight-up Sony software (vs
    hacked software your carrier had them install), it would change?

    But then that stupid internet button on the top right is still there.

    I had no idea this was possible. The SE site's knowledge base just isn't
    working.

    But not so connect-prone as the effing joystick...

    I don't know if SE ever has the whole phone software on their site or not.
    I have heard of independent authorized (or not) repair shops relaoding SE
    software on other models to fix carrier-chosen "features."

    True. I haven't actually had a problem with that side button.
