Ok, so the bottom line is this, phones4u Exeter still had stock. I had another replacement which was week 29, and that one was just as bad. In the end carphonewarehouse changed it for the regular mini. A shame, because I miss the front camera for Skype. As a bonus though, the smaller size of the mini makes up a little.
With regards as to why the mini pro makes the sound while video recording, as well as the sound being heard when you put your ear to the back. Seems to be because of the interference between the microphone and the USB port, the two conflict together. The guy took one look at the mini pro and said that the design in his opinion with regards to the port and microphone being so close together was poor design.
hey! guys..... i jus purchased dis phone yesterday....but can any one tell me how to make video call...plsss any1 having info. about it?
Hey Guys, i think i'm going to buy this phone tomorrow, despite all the complaints about the xloud features. But I'm in love with the design of the phone. It's Flawless : )
I have this phone, 7 days have passed and i have readed most of the comments and many of them said that the screen is poor.no buddy screen is aweesome u can see the text,images,video,anything from 179 degree and the quality of screen is awesome.and open your mind+eyes and see who is manufacture of mini pro sony ericsson and plus bravia engine okz............
the problem is-its too heavy cell,and leave the weight the width of this cell is above normal because of slider but i am getting used to it now and enjoying all the features.
and other then all a minor defect i notice was that the cover on the top used for usb and charging is very difficult to open from hand i am using some pin to pop out it.
inspite of this the phone is awesome super fast a good camera but less then wildfire s because my brother own it but hey we have front facing camera....two back cover....hd video recording,nice keys well placed and the lookz killer phone.....

Likvit, 28 Aug 2011I know very well what the problem is, I was propably the first one to write about it here...
... moreThat's good news! At least there are silent models... week 29 seems to be somewhat better week :)
it's a shame that I have to joke on things like this...
I'd exchange my device for yours - XLoud is perfect, but I have the noise ;)
i used wi-fi and 3g both but still in skype i am unable to do video calling yet as no option comes in contact as it has to be like video call only call option comes which means only voice call anybody used skype video call plz reply
Likvit, 28 Aug 2011Hi Aria kh, I can confirm that my second xperia mini pro has a working xloud, I just tested it... moreThank you for the info Likvit.
This is confusing ! so it seems like the noise is not the same in all sets..
I'm still waiting for a solution and haven't bought the phone yet..
This is the main issue the probable XLoud problem is not important to me since I only use headphones to listen to music.
so Tnx for your reply. I hope SE finds a solution to this problem soon.

This second one is silent and there is no bakcground noise when near ear. :)
Likvit, 28 Aug 2011Hi Aria kh, I can confirm that my second xperia mini pro has a working xloud, I just tested it... moreHi Likvit, it's not an issue limited to video capture - the noise is almost always there, when your screen is active, video only records it
That's why we consider it a serious problem.
Aria kh, 27 Aug 2011As far as I know the XLoud problem exists in all Xperia Mini Pro phones, so don't panic..
Wh... moreHi Aria kh, I can confirm that my second xperia mini pro has a working xloud, I just tested it.
This second phone has a very little noise when taking 720p video, but the noise is so little that it doesnt bother.
This second phone has also perfect calling quality, so there's no noise on background, like that first one had.
This second phone is manufactured on week 29.
Hi! Im using the se xperia mini pro right now and it's great! The best! This mini pro is actually just a sample in an event here. Hehe
PRIDE, 28 Aug 2011Yes I saw that post.
I feel that a further exchange would be futile, but the only other optio... moreIt is not just an inconvenience, it always acts like this, so it can easily turn out that it is harmful considering the lifetime of the device! Until no official clarification, we can not exclude this, too.
One thing we don't agree upon - later replacement. I'm sure they'll, or already have modified the production process or find out sth, so when phones4u restart selling the device, one should call them, ask for identifiers (below the battery: manufacturing date 11WXX, or SI number, etc.) and find a phone that doesn't have the issue;)
The most helpful would be an official clarification, making steps easier to solution (replacement, repairment, or any form of validating the 2-year guarantee).
My mini pro is 3g activated .but I dont find a option for video call ! should I download any application ? Any body please tell me ! Thank u .k
