This is the worst phone ever. The phone is a complete disappointment. The operating system is hard to use and the updates does not help. My phone can't keep track of time, it loses 5-10 minutes every week. It ran out of battery once and i have been recharging it for a day now and it still wont turn on. I tried updating but the update is not working either, it fails at the installation section. Also i can't turn off 3G on this phone. With all my problems the support was of no help even the most simple problems like turning off 3G the steps on the support page was totally off. I am very disappointed and i have always been a Sony Ericsson fan but I've had this phone for only few weeks right out of the box and i think it might already be broken without even dropping it. I've been searching for a solution but there are a lot of people with the same problems and no solution. The Sony Ericsson people just tell us to update it every time and it never solves any of the problems. Sony has ditched the symbian phones and anyone who decided to buy one. Now were just left with dead weight.
As owner of VivazPro for 6 months. So far I rate it 50/50. Size is good for carry, screen is okay, camera is very good for picture but vidoe freez few seconds (at the begining ie. on the 3rd or 4th second right after capture mode kicked in) while recording video.
GPS is working fine, I have 4 GPS systems installed, they all working as expected just take a bit long to obtain Sat signal from time to time.
WIFI working but signal but strong. Reading is abit hard as due to its size, browser is crap.
What's bad ?...the screen protector begin to peel off, it seemed caused by hot Summer weather and I also heard, phone does not work when it is too cold either (if you are in emergency in Winter, you might out of luck...beware).
The installed sofatwares are all craps. They hided everything from the user, even my own simple text file that I created via their NOTE program, I just can not find them via their Organizer.
The O/S is crap so are those installed softwares and that is why Nokia/SE is soon out of business, they desired it.

It has been about an year that I am using this phone and I am absolutely disliking it. The O/S is symbian, so you do not have much to do there, I would advice people to buy Andriod rather than symbian. It has terrible voice reception, and the touch bugs me sometimes. No I did not buy a used product, it is 100% new. I am sick and tired of my phone, and am finding it difficult to repair it as not many people have the parts. Oh, and the battery life is HORRIBLE! If I were you, I would look elsewhere...!
helloo frnds can anyone help me abt unlocking of this fone how can i get unlock code pls help me..
