Pinch-to-zoom coming soon to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 - read the full textSony Ericsson once said multi-touch isn't ever coming to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 smartphone but now, under the users and developers community pressure, the company engineers finally found a way to enable pinch zooming on the X10. Sony Ericsson first said that there were some hardware...

I suppose you also cite this amateur blog as being a source of info too?

They are not true Apple fans.

If they were they would just say there is no issue, and tell the world its the best phone ever... then go home, feeling empty, and wishing they had a phone that works so they could call someone for help.

Re: Faulty-on-arrival iPhone 4 replaced with a refurbished iPhone

Hi everybody,
I'm writing this post to understand whether it is normal for Apple to replace a faulty-on-arrival iPhone 4 with a refurbished one.

After more than three weeks of awaiting, two days ago I finally received my shiny iPhone 4. Unfortunately, after a few minutes of usage, I noticed that the screen brightness was not uniform and that there were darker spots here and there.
Today I've been to an Apple Store to have it replaced. The Genius that assisted me has immediately recognized the hardware issue and has offered me a replacement... but what he offered me was not a new iPhone but a refurbished one.
Even though I believe refurbished products are usually good products, I was quite astonished finding out that I could not get a new iPhone.

Apple sent me a faulty iPhone. I immediately contacted my local Apple Store. But apparently I do not have the right to have a new iPhone. I could only choose between keeping my iPhone (new but faulty) and accepting the refurbished replacement (non faulty but not new either!!!).

Don't you think that this is totally unbelievable?

I did not pay 800 to get a refurbished iPhone 4!
I really can't believe this is Apple.

Did this happen to you? Or does this happen only in Italian Apple Stores?
What should I do to get the new iPhone 4 I have paid for?

Thank you!

I recently have been having issues with people hearing me when i call them or i receive their calls. My sound works perfectly through Facetime and thru mic apps. What gives? Do I need to return my iphone to have this fixed? Resetting has not fixed the problem. =(

I am having the same issue, iPhone 4. When I received a call the caller says they can't hear me. I am not using a case and the plastic is off. It works fine when I am on a speaker phone call or, bluetooth, or headset. Must be an issue with the mic or the noise cancelation.

I am having this same problem! Brought it to the apple store - genius had me do a full restore (and then from my backup). It worked for about 24 hours, and then mid call yesterday afternoon, it started again - nobody can hear me!

Please help!

I'm having the SAME issue...did a full restore as well...still same thing. I'm NOT pushing mute, or anything. Literally the other person says they hear really bad static, then they cannot hear my voice at all.

I call back and they can't hear me. Have tried switching to Edge, and does the same thing. Restarted phone. Same thing.

AT&T reprovisioned (reset network) my account and still does the same thing. No one else I know is having this issue.

I having the same issue too. It is also affecting iTunes, Pandora, and similar apps. In order to hear calls I have to put the phone on speaker or use the headphones. Not sure what this problem is, but it's a problem. Just started today for me.

Yeah it seems really random. Just started doing this recently. I can record with apps, etc. So that's why it seems so strange.


Your glorified iPhone and Apple does'nt seem soooo superior now does it?!

We loyal Apple fans that like the jail and proud not to jail break are laughing at the claim of zooming not with it.

What the F are those SE haters doing here? So what if we like SE despite your so called deficiency or whatnot. Do you even have a smart phone or an x10 to compare? or your just comparing specs based on read in the internet and videos you saw on youtube?

Go hate somewhere else. We love SE and im a SE Fanboy so deal with it.

is now perfect. As I said before, pinch zooming/multi-touch would be a bonus for me but its not a necessity coz the double tap and zoom tabs work perfectly fine anyways.
If theres one quibble i have since the upgrade is that the default keyboard has lost all its creativity in the predictive texting department, I miss all those ingenious suggestions it used to throw out on 1.6 ah well, cant have it all I guess but nothing an app cant fix... got any good keyboard app suggestions?!

oh by the way, Im in South Africa on Vodacom - upgrade only released
here on tuesday but well worth the wait! :-)

iPhone got Multitouch since 2007. Sad SE fanboys will be lucky to have imperfect MT in the first half of 2011.

TY Sony! We love you! You're the best! Thanks for bringing MT to the X10 in 2011!

1. If you have the phone and are complaining about it, please think about this the next time you decide to buy a new phone: Do some research!!! Compare products... that way you'll know the product's strengths and weaknesses before buying the damned thing and you won't get any nasty surprises!
2. If you don't have the phone: what are you doing here bitching about a phone you know nothing about??

Hope this helps!

well since we are not cheap we can't buy your cheap crappy samsung! It's just so cheap and the plastic is like made from the stone age.

Also, we rather wait and have 2.1, then get buggy froyo 2.2 lool, se will not release buggy versions because quality matters first. Get it mr chics hahahaha,

The point alone of having chics for a phone, tells me how good your IQ really is, I feel sorry for you, not only that you have a cheap phone but also a cheap mind :P

Im not done... so I just gotta know... these guys that get the chics with their iPhones, do they perhaps say, "hey baby... do you wana multi-touch me on my iPhone later at my place?!" or better yet, "Im gonna iTune you on the dancefloor and pinch zoom you in my bed baby". HAHAHAAA
Its not about your phone dude, its about YOU!

Ok on a more serious note though... tell me, apart from multi-touch (which is coming) and perhaps 16m colours (which is really hard to tell apart from 65k), what are you reeeeally lacking in the X10 after the update to 2.1?! What makes it soooo bad?!
Most of the hot chics I know dont even know what Android is let alone what the differences between Eclair and Froyo are.
The way i see it... all you want is a phone to show off and brag about.
You've got a great phone dude, dont let what other people have make you envious because if thats the case you might aswell change your phone every 3months because no phone will stay current for too long in this market... its moving at lightening speed!
something to think about my friend...
