    The Sony Ericsson email software uses your data connection to send and the emails so T-Mobile won't know that you received an email, therefore they won't charge you as they would had you used their software. Obviously it will count against your data plan though (if you don't have unlimited.)

    As for the battery, I don't think the phone is using any more energy than it does when you receive a text message. It's push email, so it's not like it's even checking the email periodically.

    a clean copy?
    but I definitely won't go back to R3CA after debranding
    btw, I can unpack the file with 7zip without pwd prompt

    LOL, I wouldn't expect many people would. I was merely saying it was available if anyone needed in the original parts.

    I think it uses up a little more battery power. I've had mine on push email for a few days now, and it does seem to be a little worse. The internet icon is almost always on now, too. Still, a little less battery life is well worth it for the convenience of push email. I don't feel quite so jealous of my coworkers' Blackberrys anymore!

    I was worried that the IMAP PUSH message would be charged as an SMS or something.

    I'm going to start using PUSH, then. The TM506 has gone from "just a tether to 3G" to "greatest phone ever"

    The File System Tool button is on the very right side of the screen. You may have to slide the slider bar on the bottom to the right to see it.

    Yes, SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) is a separate download. Just follow the link provided and download it from the official Sony website.

    With the Cin Bell fw, I can take a picture and choose to send it to blogger; but it fails. I'm already a blogger.com user, and I would love to enable this; but I can't find the setting I need to make to set my account up. Anyone know what to do?

    Are you using the wap.voicestream.com apn or epc.tmobile.com apn? If your using the wap apn, i wonder if it blocks the ports needed. I doubt it but just throwing out ideas.

    I figured it out. Well, something was broken when I tried it last night.
    This is how it works:
    Take picture,
    choose send
    choose To Blog
    it asks you for a blog name,
    it asks you to edit the post (subject + body)
    it connects, creates the blog, and uploads the post.
    blogger sms's you a claim ID
    you use the claim id to tie the phone with a blogger account (either an existing one or the one the phone created for you.)

    Are you sure you're using the link that SD gave in post 1 of this thread for A2uploader?

    I just re-downloaded the A2uploader zip file from that link and there are just two icons in that folder after you unpack the zip file:

    a2uploader.exe and the drivers ggsetup-2.2.0.1.exe. There are no programs to install on the computer. You just run the ggsetup if you haven't already so that the drivers are on your computer. And then you run a2uploader.
