    I've set my SE T610 to check my email every hour.
    When there is E-mail I get the little envelop symbol
    on top of the display, but no sound.

    I do get a sound when I receive SMS messages.

    Is it possible to set the T610 to give a sound when
    receiving E-mail? (Like it does with the SMS messages)

    You either take it to an Ericsson service centre, or get one of the regulars
    posting here (ourselves included) to do it for you.

    I phoned them, but they said cos it was on Orange branded phone it would
    have to be sent to their Advanced Repair Centre to get done. They also said
    it wouldn't be free (even though the phone is less than 12 months old)
    because it wasn't faulty.

    Your phone freezes doesn't it? :P

    find another bug that's fixed in the latest firmware, and present your
    phone with having that bug.....

    Firmware upgrades should be free though under warranty. In a lot of
    cases (most?) they are. I suppose it depends on the dealer and country
    you are in.

    I got my new firmware today.
    I went to a SE service center in The Hague. I't was free of
    charge if you could show a receipt(proof of purchage). If not, you would
    have to pay 15 Euro.

    For people who would like to check their current firmare:
    ( > = move right with the stick, < = move left, * = the * a/A key)

    > * < < * < *


    There you will see a SW menu option. (with the version number)

    I had R1L013, they upgraded it to R3C002

    Some Improvements in the new firmware:

    --30% JAVA speed improvement (JBenchmark test) e.g JAVA applications run
    much better and smoother. Now we can load more java games and do not
    have to to settle for mophun too much

    --New menu in "Send Message" called "Contacts", saves you one click when
    sending messages

    --When you play recorded conversations, they now play over the
    loudspeaker (better quality playback then before (the mms method))

    --Pictures taken with the camera appear to take up less memory! (avrg
    14kb-19kb for large size photo)

    --Pictures taken with the camera appear to be clearer (might have to
    play around with shutter speed)

    --When choosing word alternative in T9 while replying to message,
    pressing the joystick in will no longer send the message, but accept the
    word. (Finally!) While not in T9 word selection, joystick in will send
    the message.

    --When previewing ringtones from "My sounds" they start at maximum volume

    ---If vibration is turned on, the phone will now vibrate on calendar/timer

    -- Camera looks pictures look sharper and better. In R1A, only
    brightness control (Up and Down joystick on camera mode) is available.
    Now, saturation control (Left and Right on joystick on camera mode) is
    already available.

    --In checking memory status, My sounds memory usage is now reported. In
    R1A, the total memory is reported as "0kb" and you have to click on the
    My sounds to get a listing of sounds with the corresponding memory usage
    per sound.

    -- Menus load a lot faster. Delay in response is hardly noticeable

    -- Clock on standby screen has more rounded font.

    --Now you can copy individual phonebook entries from the SIM to the
    Phone's memory. This is done via Phonebook->Advanced->Call from
    SIM->then select the contact you want->More->Copy to phone. No facility
    yet to copy individual contacts from phone to SIM.


    I haven't checked if my innitial problem was solved --> do I get
    a sound when receiving emails

    Thank you all for pointing out the new firmware!

    Hey, my favourite SE service center! (Phoneshop right?) It's on my to-do
    list to go there next week to update my R1A to a R3C version :-)
    Bummer that they don't have one in Utrecht...

    Indeed; the PhoneShop:-)

    But make sure to take your receipt with you!
    (It takes 15 - 20 minutes to flash the device)

    Besides upgrading yout T610, they can also
    change the T610 covers (The Blue & Red Edition)
    I'm not sure, but I believe in total (the covers & installation)
    it was about 40 or 60 Euros.

    Have fun in The Hague

    Maurice - The Netherlands

    PS: The firmware upgrade didn't solve my my intitial problem;
    getting a sound when receiving E-mails, but the other improvements make
    up to that:-)
    up to that

    Yes I know, I went there a few times with my T68i (and once with a R520 from
    the US, which they wouldn't flash for free without a dutch receipt).

    Nice, but to expensive for now. The silver one is still the most beautiful
    in my opinion, but the blue or red one are a nice for in about half a year
    or something.
