Basic functions in xperia x10

I bought Xperia X10 last month. Earlier I was using P1i and it was having quite a few facilities which I am missing here. Can some one help me how to get it in x10?

  • Does x10 have multi touch? If not, is it expected and when?
  • Is there one touch short cut available to close all running applications?
  • My Xperia constantly tries to connect to internet. How do I stop this?
  • My Xperia came with only one pre loaded game. Which are the games that come preloaded with Xperia and how do I get it?
  • How do I delete recently played, recently viewed, recently added etc list in Mediascape?
  • How do I hide the photo or video files in Mediascape?
  • How do I play the songs in the order of file name in Mediascape?
  • How do I view media files other than through Mediascape? Because of unavailibility of above features, I do not want to use Mediascape.
  • How do I fix photo on Home screen in tile mode? Meaning, I want to fit the wallpaper photo in a screen so that it is not visible partly on my home screen.
  • The call log contains all calls. How do I see only missed calls or dialed calls or received calls?
  • The call log is in extended mode. How do I configure it in compact mode so that I see only one entry for each caller?
  • How do I send Business card through SMS? Currently it goes through MMS.
  • If one contact has multiple numbers and I want to send only one number, How do I do that?
  • How do I set up speed dial?
  • How do I do voice recording? Also, let me know how do I do recording while I am on call?
  • Does Xperia has voice mail? I do not want the one offered by my mobile operator.
  • Last but not least, if the answer of most of the above is NO (which are basic functions), then is there any sense buying xperia x10?

    Thanks in advance...

    You can download

    "Taskiller free" by AxDroid LLC

    once installed you can create a widget or just open the app.

    although you don't need to kill your apps.

    "My Xperia came with only one pre loaded game. Which are the games that come preloaded with Xperia and how do I get it?"

    Every market has different games/apps pre-installed but you can just go to Playnow and/or Android market and start downloading the games.

    There's no way to delete recently played, viewed, added, unless you run a factory reset after you use Mediascape

    You can't hide photos, videos.

    You can download and install the apps I suggested above.

    Music_X10

    as for watching videos you can use "Rock Player"

    use NeoReader on the QR code bellow

    "How do I set up speed dial?"

    long press anywhere on your home screen, select shortcut, Direct Dial, select the contact and voila

    There are many "Voice Recorder" apps in the market that allow you to do just that.
