@paul
when the phone hangs/freezes and you need to restart it.
just hold the power button and click the volume up key until it vibrates, when it vibrates, release it then the phone will turn off.
-PS I'm a sola user

I don't know why are you having network problems. But my unit works perfectly fine. I get continuous wifi or 3g/hsdpa internet connection. I am able to update files and games without being disconnected. I can run 3d games such as deadspace and emulators for playstation one and gba. I play tekken 3, finanl fantasy 9 etc without lag. My phone is not rooted. and I'm not planning to root it to make full use of sony's support. It really is a great phone. The only problem that I find is the speakers are on the back, so putting it face up on the table blocks the speaker. also 512mb ram is good but It should have 1gig ram so I can optimize multitasking specially when running hardcore 3d games.

Hi guys,
I am planning to buy this phone in a week time.
Can existing user shed some light on the Display & Network issues mentioned here in the earlier opinions.
Also will the battery last for a day for normal users.
I read it is a non-user replaceable battery, we generally remove the battery if the device hangs,what to do with this phone incase it hangs?

Awaiting reply!

Thanks,
Paul

Update the firmware to latest iteration. I had the same issue but after updating firmware issue is resolved. If problem persists take it to Sony service centre.

The in call volume is low. But , it is definitely manageable. You will have a hard time only when the environment is very crowded. Otherwise it is cool !!!
