Sony Ericsson PC Suite (or SE Phone Tools) is a Windows application for use with your modern SonyEricsson mobile phones. It's the default software which Sony issues and therefore it may seem a little bit bloated. It does, however, offer mobile users the very handy option of backing up data. One should be careful, though, because some user complaints of backed up data gave them a subsequent error of not being able to restore it! This issue is not that widespread.
The program also promises to allow you to use your phone as a modem in Windows. Though Windows 7 compatibility is reported as sparse, we didn't have an issue there.
The software is one of the only mainstream options for Sony Ericsson phones and some caution should be used when restoring data.
Note: Sony Ericsson is a legacy brand. This tool is now distributed by Sony Mobile.
Sony Ericsson PC Companion can update phone firmware, manage contacts, transfer files between phone and PC and synchronize phone data.
Sony Ericsson PC Tools is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from mobile phone tools without restrictions. Sony Ericsson PC Tools 1.6.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
