    I just replaced my trusty old T39 with a K700i (on O2), and I'm having a few
    problems.

    1. My HBH-60 Bluetooth headset seems to be incapable of remaining paired
    with the phone for more than about 30 seconds, even when the phone is in my
    shirt pocket. The headset still works fine with the T39. Am I alone?

    2. I'd like to be able to compose SMS messages on my laptop, like I could
    using the software that came with the T39. The K700i has a utility for
    creating MMS messages (Multimedia Messages) but I want SMS messages. Any
    suggestions?

    3. Supposedly I can set the phone code to "Automatic", which (I think) means
    that I should be prompted for the phone code only when I change SIMs. For
    some reason my phone insists on me entering the phone code every time I
    switch it on, no matter what. Am I doing something wrong?

    4. I'd like a ring tone that just sounds like a phone (so I stand out in a
    crowd). I don't want a melody; I don't want a song, and I don't want an MP3
    of the bells of an old Bakelite phone. I just want some kind of inoffensive
    warbling noise. Any suggestions? (I also don't want to key the ringtone in
    by hand either!)

    I could wish it had some kind of flip-cover over the screen and keypad (like
    the T39); the keypad lock is mild pain and the display is already starting
    to scuff. But other than the above, it seems to be a very fine little
    phone. I give it 8 out of 10, which is a lot better than I'd give anything
    else I looked at as a replacement.

    1. That's normal behaviour for the headset - it should connect again when
    the phone rings for example..

    2. Try Float's Mobile Agent, downloadable from http://fma.sourceforge.net/

    3. Don't know - don't have a code set up!

    4. You can use FMA to upload any MIDI file to use as a ringtone.

    It appears not to. The handset actually announces the HBH-60 is
    disconnected, and when the phone rings the headset does not re-connect.

    Excellent! Appears very promising.

    I'm aware of that, but I was rather hoping someone could point me to a
    suitable file.

    Many thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

    Thank you, but what I was really hoping for was not another ringtone site,
    but a specific recommendation of a file. These sites have hundreds of
    ringtones, organized in various ways, but I've spent a lot of time searching
    them for a plain old warble, without success. Do you think it is worth my
    while to persist with searching the site yoiu recommend, or am I going to be
    better off (and quicker) to learn how to compose my own?

    Do you have Bluetooth switched on? (Connectivity, Bluetooth, Turn On) This
    is not as silly as it may sound, as the headset will connect without BT
    being specifically enabled.

    Have you tried the 'Joybells' ringtone - that's relatively innofensive!

    On the basis that it isn't as silly as it sounds, I checked. Going to
    Connectivity->Bluetooth the first menu item is "Turn off", so that would
    appear to confirm that had I turned it on (as I was morally certain I had).

    Thanks for the suggestion though. Keep 'em coming.

    It sounds like you are confusing pin code and lock code. With lock code set
    to automatic you have to enter lock code every time you change sim card. My
    lock code has 5 didgits, the pin code is only 4 didgits. Pin is carrier and
    sim card related while lock code is phone related. Sorry if you knew all
    this deforhand and has a real problem whit lock code missbehaving.

    Sony Ericsson has provided a midi file called Old phone.mid which sounds like
    just that.
