Sasi 90, 03 Aug 2012Dear Friends, Sola is having a battery which is non-removable by user. Will it create any prob... morethis is the problems with forums like this. I need to repeat my answer every time a new user asks.
Holding the power button and pressing "volume" until it vibrates will cause the phone to restart even it hangs up.
Why would having a non-removable battery create problems. iPhone has a non-removable battery
plz help me decide.... xperia Sola or ARC S...???
I need help!
tinfu, 02 Aug 2012hello glenn, tried that already still no 3G signal/icon. if i may ask where did you bought you... moreAnyway, you will NEVER see a G/E/3G/H icon unless you turn on and was able to connect your phone using DATA (Allow Data Traffic). Otherwise if DATA is disabled on your settings, you'll just see signal bars.
You'll only see an icon if you are connected to the internet. @tinfu, at your area you should atleast get an G or E icon when you connect to the internet. You should have load if you are prepaid. If you don't even get a G=GPRS then your internet setting(Access Point) is not properly configured
tinfu, 02 Aug 2012hello glenn, tried that already still no 3G signal/icon. if i may ask where did you bought you... moreAnyway, are you sure that there is 3G signal at your location? have you tried it on other phones? @shino is more sure that it might be a problem in the unit because his other phone has 3G signal using the same sim.
You should try it on other phones @tinfu, because there might be NO 3G signal in your area.
tinfu, 02 Aug 2012hello glenn, tried that already still no 3G signal/icon. if i may ask where did you bought you... moreI bought it online and did a meetup. Meetup at SM North. http://dbgadgets.multiply.com/ I bought it here. They really don't have warranty, just 7 days replacement. The 1 year service warranty is non-sense. since it doesn't include parts. But my Sola is working just fine. Anyway, the gadgets here are cheap(since thay really don't have real warranty, buy at your own risk).
Dear Friends, Sola is having a battery which is non-removable by user. Will it create any problem. How to restart the phone while it hangs up..? kindly suggest whether shall i go for SOLA or XPERIA RAY...
fahim, 02 Aug 2012SOLA or ARC S which is better to buy???? plz help me guyz.Sola...it's nice phone :)

ahmed sayeed, 01 Aug 2012Which one better Sony Xperia Sola or HTC Desire VDEsire V has a bigger screen and no compass.
Its a single core phone, with adreno 200 gpu.
But comes with android 4
Sola has a 3.7 inch screen, dual core, mali 400mp gpu (equivalent to adreno 220, thus better than adreno 205)
currently in adroid 2.3 but android 4 is soon to be released for xperia.
Sola also has floating touch and NFC sense.
Get sola, you wont regret it ( i have it)
stay with the newer generation (dual core and powerful gpu)
Aww, hearing about that 3G,HSDPA & EDGE problem..tsk, I live here in Calamba and planning to buy this Phone
you think Sola here have that problem to? :]
ahmed sayeed, 01 Aug 2012Which one better Sony Xperia Sola or HTC Desire Vgo for sola.. :)
tinfu, 01 Aug 2012hi shino03,likewise here i dont have any 3G signal in my sola (im using globe). i tried my sim... more@Tinfu, I also went to the Xperia store in Rob Ermita and they just shoved me off to the globe store there which is just nearby.(They blamed globe for the lack of 3g, edge, and hsdpa signals on my phone) I stood up for half an hour there just to know that my sim card is working properly and that it is the reception on my sola which has problems.
I think the sales clerk on the Xperia store in Rob Ermita is oblivious of the problem. They even don't know the difference between the firmware(build number) and android version. I asked one of the sales clerk if I could know the firmware of the Solas they're selling there and he said it is on gingerbread.
I'll try to update my phone this weekend and see if it works. I hope it will but if not, I'll go to MOA in their service center(I can't replace my unit anymore as the store where I bought my Sola has only a 3-day replacement policy which sucks big time)
I rate this fone 7.5 i like most of its features. The only con i have for sola is the sms messenging feat. its a bit tricky. But i have installed Go sms and Go keyboard now problem solved. U can also try dloading Easy battery saver and Easy task killer for less utiliZation of battery and apps in the background.
