    Yes you can.

    Go to the Android Market application and then you can download apps from there.

    Hi kitsis1990.
    If you install an app from market it will install automaticly but if you transfer an app from your computer then you will need an app installer to install the app after you have transferred it you can get one from the market. hope this helps Colin

    When you plug your x10 into your computer you will get a notification in the top left of your phone screen. pull this notification down so you can read it. and follow instructions it will say something like mount usb so mount the usb and follow instructions after you have done that on your computer you should get an popup saying something like install software so install the software on your computer ... If for some reason this is not working click this link Sony Ericsson - Support - Softwaredownloads - Xperia? X10

    and download the software manually.... hope this helps

    This and that.
    Here
    It's as simple as that, find the app using a file browser on the phone such as Astro or RootExplorer and install, making sure the "Unknown sources" tab is selected in settings.

    I am in a similar situation but for a different reason. Assuming it can be done judging by the responses above:

    I am trying to avoid repeatedly having to restore my contacts from a backup as they get wiped out pretty much daily. Google and SE sync might be the reason: that I set accounts up for the purpose of accessing Market, but I suspect that is the reason I am constantly losing my contacts.

    I am trying to use "Market" or get access to install about a dozen favourite apps only, but I cannot access Market without going through setting up a google account. Is there a way to do this without doing that?
    Since I do not care to use Gmail anyway, is there a better or equivalent app that provides the same services without having to sign up for another useless email account that I'll never use?


    Conditions:

    I have just re-installed the base software using update service.

    I want to access the web only through wi-fi.

    I do not want a gmail account.

    Sony Ericsson sync is useless as it has a hard time logging in to the account, and often does not sync properly anyway.

    I do not have a data plan through my carrier nor do I want to do so for $40 a month- bloody insane. I have access to wi-fi pretty much everywhere I go on a daily basis for free!

    I do not have or want Facebook anything/twitter anything/or any other spying and social networking facilitators. I enjoy and treasure my privacy and couldn't be bothered updating my latest whereabouts and whineabouts/haven't got the slightest interest or desire to follow anybody else either...I'm not self centered- I just couldn't give a crap about anybody else's movements and life problems as I have enough to worry about with my own. It's a life philosophy: we should all be more interested in fixing our own issues before nosing around other people's.

    The directions on the G1 linked site I am thinking are not for what I am needing- to get apps to the phone yes, but getting an actual installer installed on the phone to install side loaded apps, or apps downloaded to the phone using an alternate "Market" app, or just plain google web without signing up for GMAIL.

    Is it possible to accomplish what I'm seeking considering the conditions?

    I bought the X10 as a MEDIA phone as opposed to a SOCIAL NETWORKING phone.

    Hi.

    You could just search for the apks of the apps you want online, transfer them to the phone and install.

    That's the rub... what process is used to get the first app to do the installing process. Chicken and egg situation here...

    In order to install something, I need to get an installer installed on the phone. Can't get that step done.
