    Although Sony Ericsson phones are loaded with exciting default features, you may still want to personalize according to your taste. One such feature that users like to change the most is the theme.

    Using WAP

    • Before you begin to download themes for your Sony Ericsson, make sure your subscription supports WAP and its settings are stored on your device. WAP stands for Wireless Application Protocol, mostly used for accessing mobile web from a mobile phone or PDA. It provides basic services like email, news updates and downloads. To download a theme for a Sony Ericsson, enter the application via WAP.
    • Scroll to ‘Pictures & Sounds, More Themes’ or in some devices, locate ‘File Manager’ and select ‘Themes’.
    • Click to select ‘Sony Ericsson’ and press ‘Go To’. The phone connects to the Sony Ericsson fun and download WAP site, where the latest themes are available.
    • Browse the list of available themes and select the one you like.
    • Before you click download, make sure that your phone has enough memory to store the theme because the download stops if there is not enough memory to store the theme.
    • Now click download.
    • Once the download is completed, click ‘More’ and scroll to ‘exit WAP’.
    • New downloaded themes are either saved in ‘Pictures & Sounds, Themes’ or in File Manager, ‘Themes’.
    • To install the new theme select the theme and click ‘apply’.Still Life theme for Sony Ericsson
