    Hi guys today I bought Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc but I have no wifi router or any other internet connections(excepting broadband cable) so I want to know: how cand I install an APK application through USB on my phone? Or to make internet work on my phone via USB?

    download the apk onto your computer and copy it to the phone...you will prolly wanna start with an app installer apk so you can get everything installed.

    See if in your list of app you have one that says "files"(a file manager) It may be able to install your apk file that you copy over

    There should be some kind of app that allows you to see the files on your sd card since its a fairly new device
