Additional info on Sending and Receiving ‘my picture’ phone to phone

The T39 can exchange personal pictures, using Bluetooth or Infrared.

To receive a picture, go to ‘4 Receive picture’ in the Background menu. You can choose for either
Infrared or Bluetooth to connect to the other phone. With infrared, there must be line-of-sight between
the infrared eyes of the two phones and they should be within one-meter range. With Bluetooth, no line
of sight is required and the phones should be within 10-meter range.

For both connection methods, your T39 will automatically switch on the connection mode to receive the
picture and close it down afterwards. Additionally, using Bluetooth there is no need to pair the phones
prior to exchanging a picture. As long as one phone is triggered to send a picture, you only have to
select ‘4 Receive picture’ and the new picture will automatically be stored in the phone.

To send a picture, there must be a personal picture stored in the phone. When there is no ‘my picture’
stored, the function will be displayed in grey in the menu and can not be selected. If there is a ‘my
picture’ saved in the phone, select ‘3 Send picture’ and it will work similar to receiving pictures.

Creating a personal picture and downloading it from PC to phone
In order to create personal background pictures on a PC and send them to the phone, the following is
• the PC must run on operating system Windows 98 or a more recent version
• the PC must contain a drawing program that can store pictures in GIF format
• the PC must have a configured Irda infrared port

Creating a background picture

•   The picture must be saved as a GIF file
•   The picture should be 4-scale greyscale (black, white and
    2 shades of grey) or black and white
•   Picture size must be 73 x 26 pixels or smaller for the T39
•   Maximum file-size should be less than 600 byte

Any picture editing program that can save pictures into GIF-
format can be used.

Tip: The ‘My Pictures’ software supplied by Ericsson Mobile
Internet is a great help when creating and editing background images.

Sending a background picture from PC to phone via Infrared

•   Activate the infrared eye on the phone
•   Establish an infrared connection between the PC and T39
•   Open windows explorer on the PC
•   Put the cursor on the background picture file and push the right mouse button
•   A menu will pop up; go to ‘Send to’ and then select ‘Infrared Recipient’
•   In the T39 display the background picture will appear, together with the question to save? Press Yes
    and the background picture will be saved and activated.

Note: the T39 can only store one ‘my picture’. If you upload a new picture, your old picture will be
replaced. However, the same routine to save a new personal background picture in the phone can be
used to send your personal picture from phone to PC to archive it. Go to ‘Settings’ – ‘Display’ –
‘Background’ and select ‘Send my picture’. Select ‘Send by Infrared’ and then put the phone next to
the computer so that the Infrared link will be established. When the connection is made, the picture will
be automatically sent to the computer and will appear in the ‘My Received Files’ folder on the computer
as a file called ‘My_Picture.gif‘.

Sending a background picture from PC to phone via Mobile Internet

•   Use the ‘Browse’ button to find your image and click it
•   Your image will be saved in your personal gallery reachable via WAP
•   Enter Sony Ericsson Mobile Internet via WAP and download your image to your T39

Download of background images via Web and WAP

Another way to personalise your background picture in the T39 phone, is by downloading background
images via WAP. To give you even more access to pictures while on the move the phone will also allow
you to upload pictures to a personalised Website of your choice.
