Some people are noob, they buy a cheap phone and they wanted to upgrade to the latest version of android.. Take note, do not update your firmware to the latest version or it will not run smooth.. I downgraded my phone to its stock firmware coz I realize that when upgraded some application will become heavier or putting some additional app to run in the background.. My phone is very smooth and it's like brand new.. Upgrade your phone if it's 2-3gig of ram so that.. Gingerbread.
can anyone described me or provide me a detailed link of how to install Kitkat on this device. please
Is there anyone living in the UK that would like a free xmp silicone case that fits around the phone securely and alllows the keyboard to slide in and out? Its a little damaged but it still securely opens and shuts and protects the phone.
can anyone pls tell me if this phone has a notification light/led? if it can be switched off for the night and still will alarm in the morning? and also if it supports whatsapp? does it open pics and links within an email? thanks
You can update your unit via root. Mine is running on kitkat and it is running well. The ram is ok because you can costumize your running app on backgrounds and minimize it when on standby.
how to upgrade to kitkat? already use for 3++ years..can we upgrade the RAM? or internal memory?
Mine just broke about a week ago. Was only just over 2 years old. Some advice to anyone, do not take the battery out quickly after turning the phone off, always wait for the vibrate to end . Usually I did, but this time I didnt and phone hasnt worked since. Tried other batteries and a repair is too costly.
I am using this phone for about 3 years now and all I can say is that the phone is really good. The smallest android phone that ever lived. The camera is excellent, I'm using android kitkat and it is running smooth.
Custom ROMs work really well on this phone. You can get jelly bean and it flies! Tweak it a little, trim a bit of the Google apps and CM fat, and you've got a super usefull, sweet little QWERTY android phone!
neha, 27 Aug 2014Xperia min pro is a awesome phone.....but since 1month m facing a problem with it all my pics ... morePhotos not loading, messages screwing up all that kind of thing are software issues and not related to the handset. Try searching for solutions within your version of android rather than this particular handset.
If that don't work Reinstall Android, or root and install custom ROM

I've been using this since when I was highschool in 2012 and still works properly until now. I liked to do some things like using custom rom and flashing, until I bricked this phone once and I bring it to Sony center. I was worried and I'm scared that I can't use this phone anymore. After 1 month, Sony repaired it and thank God this phone still working so smooth, even I lost the home button. Lol.

Anonymous, 30 Jul 2014one year ago i tried to start my phone but it didn't start any more... no one could repair it ... moreWell I have this phone since the begging 2011,and it still works perfectly. I dropped this phone so many times ,(sometimes really bad )and the only thing that was happening to the phone when I was dropping it again and again, it was asking to restat it because it didn't recognize the SIM, so people absolutely buy Sony products :)
I am using this phone for 3 yrs..bought on 2011......its working well..no problems at all... limitations are its low phone memory of only 400 MB and 512 MB RAM..hence while playing some games phone becomes slow...but it has awesome video quality and sound quality...can record HD videos and supported all kinds of HD videos..its one of the best ,fast qwerty display smart phone..it also supports 32 GB memory card .I am using sandisk 32 GB card...another one is its awesome quality 5 MP Camera..and 1 Ghz processor..
Owned this one for about 2 years now. Still works absolutely fine although slow since I updated the OS to v4.0. Recently I tried upgrading the SD card to a 32GB Samsung SDHC Class 10 as I had a regular SanDisk 8GB slotted in the phone. However after I made the transfer, the phone had trouble loading the files (eg. music, images) and they wouldn't appear at all or would tell me that the SD card was not available or unmounted. The apps that I moved to the SD card wouldn't load properly as well. I've since transferred back to using the 8GB SanDisk. I'm not sure why it couldn't load properly. Maybe the SD card type was too high class, powerful or large for the phone? I might try a 16GB when I get my hands on one.
