Hi!!! First of all i'm from India & I've been thinking of buying this phone... i know the phone's features & i am excited 'n' looking forward to have this in my palm... i looked up for it on Ebay and found an Indian seller who's selling the phone for below the market price @ 12.5K while the market price is around 14.5K.... Seller has a 100% positive feedback but then its my 1st purchase & i've heard of the REBOOT issues of this phone on the internet... i also went to the forum on the SE website & read a lot of posts from the phone owners all with the same REBOOT problem.... There was no concrete solution to it.... Can the seller possibly sell a defective piece as the price is below the market or am i just being too doubtful? REBOOT issue is a great concern & i just don't want to sound like an idiot who paid 12.5K for a phone that is BUGGY and irritates all the time Rebooting... Please advise me on buying the phone from Ebay given my situation...

I bought this phone 2 weeks ago.. no big problem so far.. quite like this phone for it's fast performance compare to my previous X8..LOL.. anyway I still have my w902 walkman phone also.. Actually I plan to get this live as a replacement.. But after I did a several tested with this live (with headphone attached), I feel clear bass and stereo technology is still win by far.. I don't know if I haven't met the best setting in default equalizer for this live walkman.. The loudspeaker output for music is pretty loud but still lack of treble in my preferences compare to w902 in example.. I don't really like the xLoud as for a several songs they got distorted..

But overall I still love this live walkman, and can't wait to taste ICS in it.. :)

Guys I hear a lot of ppl complaining about random restart issues. Most of them I guess bought their phones off ebay. May be there r some area issues with that. Any one of you got a genuine manufacturer guaranteed piece with same issues and is there any solution? I'm about to buy this and pls answer fast!
