Was using this phone for past one year. Recently would hang while making a call or would be slow. Just reset the phone and was fine, only to know that now my phone only works on 3g network. It does not work on 2g, says unable to connect to network. Only 3g SIM card with 3g network coverage areas the phone works. Can any one help. Tried all stuff. Gsm mode ~ does not register at all. PleaSe help. Really good phone though.
And for charging.
When mobile data is in gsm mode, it will take you 3 hours.
When wcdma mode, it will take you 6 hours.
Thats all. ;)
Hi, good eve.
I've been using this phone since August 2012.
i did experienced some problems all you people are posting.
But I had successfully manipulated them to not interfere upon my usage for 26hours with mobile data continuously running.
I will tell you how.
Shut down your phone, and then turn it on.
Don't touch the screen till it locks itself.
Now unlock it. And use it as you prefer.
It will not hang or so whatever, even morethan a month without restarting.
If you want to prolong the battery life,
Turn your mobile data to gsm only,
If you are just using apps for messaging, then gsm is enough.
By chance if you want to make a call using an app, then switch mobile data to wcdma. Then switch it back to gsm after the call.
Hope it helps you.

Recently its taking a while to fully charge my phone. Roughly 6 hours to fully charge. It used to be just around 2 hrs
The phone is switching off it's self with a display message "due to high temprature phone is turning off" but the temp was about 20' and due to this the battery is consumed very much before switching off it was 80% after i turned it on it was 42% .
Sony phone is absolutely stunning. The user interface is so amazing, the weather gadget is the most realistic compared to the ugly weather shown on HTC or Samsung devices. The display is extremely high quality and bests almost everything out there on the market.
Highly recommended purchase since the battery is good enough, especially if you considering that there are people who put in the charger at night.
It works perfectly and there are no software or hardware issues at all.

Anonymous, 05 May 2014Having trouble with my mic.....any ideas its now and thenThis phone doesn't support mic other than the headphones it comes with it. It's not ideal if you don't like the headphones mate.
This phone isn't very good overall. I liked the jelly bean 4.1 UI and quality of display of the phone.
There are more negative things to this phone rather than positive. I mainly think it is the problem with the software rather than hardware because most times, there is a lag towards every command such as opening apps or taking videos on the camera.
There is a phone memory of 1GB and internal memory of around 26GB but you have to manually add apps to internal memory or else it will automatically move towards phone memory.
Also, there is a problem with doing basic commands such as calling; such as sometimes it always lags before calling a person.
Unless Sony themselves are willing to spend more time actually creating a better update of the UI so there is less lags, better efficiency of battery life and a general improvement in the software aspects, it's not worth the money.
Honestly, I believe there are other alternative phones at cheaper price which are better value than this phone.
I think its a good phone, but obviously not one of the best. I upgraded to jelly bean and clearly you notice the device running slower than before, But it never crash or reboot itself. The battery life is poor and the camera is not what you might expect from a sony device, specially the stabilization in video mode.
