I'm not from bangladesh so I dont know where you can buy this. look at sony phone shops. they should have one of these.

Also its around 350$ US dollars in our country, just convert it to your dollar to your currency exchange rate

Frankly speaking i bought this phone and returned back withing 2 hours. I had expected something good,but everything is bad. My advice is not to go for it.

also, use ordinary wallpapers only, not the live wallpapers to save battery life. download "Go task manager" from google play. and find other utility apps. also reduce the number of widgets in your screen. widgets are like MINI applications the run and consume battery

download from the market, "Go task manager"
make a shortcut outside, access it everytime to kill all apps. to free memory and make sure next app will not lag.
Some android apps, still run when yung press home button or back,(similar to minimizing window on a windows PC). So it may consume your battery faster. Use the GO task manager to kill all apps when you standby so you wont wast precious battery

@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
