    A new t237 owner was asking me how he could get midi files from his pc
    into his phone. He also would like to find a source for some free
    games -
    maybe a solitaire.

    He's never had a cell phone (nor have I) so I'm uncertain how to help
    him.

    He's using Cingular service, if that helps.

    Anyone know if there are online instructions? I tried the web site for
    the phone, but kept getting server 404 errors.

    If you get errors with www.sonyericsson.com at the moment then the problem
    is likely at your end

    I just got my T237 on Monday (I know a lot of people aren't
    impressed with it, but I haven't had any problems with it in my area
    yet), and have been searching the Internet for information on this
    thing, specifically the ringtone format and how to get ringtones into
    the phone. But I can't find _any_ info on two simple (or at least I
    _thought_ they would be simple) questions:

    1) What format are the polyphonic ringtones in? Are they straight MIDI
    files, or something more propriatary? I know there are converter
    programs out there, but if you don't know the format the phone
    requires, they tend to be useless...

    2) Assuming I have the correct format file, how can I transfer into
    the phone _without_ a data cable? Can I use simple HTTP on my
    company's server? Or do I need to research and learn the WAP subset
    and use it?

    If anyone knows of a FAQ anywhere on the web regarding the T237 (or
    T230 series) and ringtones, a pointer would be _greatly_ appreciated -
    there's this silly little CTU ringtone (from the TV series "24") I am
    dying to use... (If there isn't one, and I can figure this all out,
    I'll write the thing to save the next guy the trouble.)

    >2) If your friend purchased a data-cable(about 10-13 bucks) then the cost of
    >using the web, and downloading stuff is eliminated.


    Yeah, that option is looking better and better, frankly, but instead
    of running out and buying one right away I'd like to figure out how to
    transfer from the server I control first.

    Much thanks in advance for any replies...
