    Wow, you've got a really nice phone, the only problem is I can't find much in the way of documentation. It's capable of WAP and bluetooth, though you might have a hard time getting the right WAP and MMS configuration settings from T-Mobile. I'm sure it can be done, but your phone was originally locked to a European provider, so T-Mobile might not have the exact settings.

    You might be able to just zap games and things onto your phone through the bluetooth, or with the removable memory. If it comes down to it, there is software and data cable that can do what you want, but I've never had a need for it so I don't know much about that either.

    Honestly, you've posted in the wrong forum for cell phone help (right now we're in New Member Help) and understandably so, I had a hard time deciding which forum to move the thread to. I'm going to move your thread to the Sony Ericsson forum, but I'll keep looking into your problem and mention it to some people I know around here that might be able to help...

    Walker, first you'll need to have your phone's WAP settings configured to accept T-Mobile's WAP.

    Click Here to get that out of the way.

    Next, you won't be able to download games through T-Mobile because it is not a T-Mobile supported phone. You should try what Sony Erricson suggested and go through a third party provider.

    Third party providers are outside services that sell games, ringtones, and wallpapers for your phone. They are not connected to nor affiliated with the service you use. The third party provider bills your cell phone company, and in turn, your cell phone company bills you. In your case, you will lose minutes instead of money. Try googling the terms "Jamster, dadamobile, or mQue." Those are the most common ones I see on people's bills.

    It is VERY VERY important that you read the terms and conditions of those 3rd party providers. They'll most likely offer you 1 free download, however, they will automatically send you AND bill you downloads until you have cancelled with them. A lot of people get slapped paying huge amounts of money when they start to mess with 3rd party providers, so make sure you read the terms and conditions with them and make sure you know how to cancel with them also.
