Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

I went to the web site and search for a download, but could not find it. It keeps saying that I should do it through PC Companion. Can you please give us a URL for this download.

PC Companion is normally found on your phone memory and will install when you connect your phone to the PC first time round.

The other one to try for updating is Sony Ericsson Update Service which can be found here

Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

If you're with Vodafone and trying to update to 2.1 then you will have to wait because they have not released the software.  Vodafone have sent me an email. confirming this. I have been advised by a T-mobile customer that she has been able to update her phone. The reason I upgraded (and spent more money) to a X10i was because I was able to update over the internet but Vodafone neglected to advise me that I wouldn't be able to do this.

Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

I had the same problem using my XP x64 PC but when I re booted into my Windows 7 partition it worked like a dream.

I am finding that W7 seems to have solved a lot of the old niggling problems.
