Got tired of WiFi issues, phone would not connect, then connect, then say password incorrect after just switching it's connection off itself, then looping with password 'incorrect' then connecting....so got a replacement...,same! The Rom is junk, tried the 'repair' version online....same. Come to conclusion that as I am on phone number two, their Rom is to blame....two days old purchase this...Sony you WERE good, but now I reserve the right to be silent or I may feel inclined to use expletives of an Anglo Saxon origin that I feel suit you! My cheap Alcatel 990, costing £35 is far superior in the functionality steals!!!!
GeethaNadh, 03 Oct 2012GPS is unable to find my locatiom
What to doPower off and on almost always picks things up. I also use the excellent GPS Status & Toolbox app to make sure the best A-GPS data is loaded in the event of difficulty, and GPS Monitor Free to keep live track in the status bar of how many satellites are visible (if it's stuck on 0/0 you probably need a restart).

Processors cant handle the tasks, jams more than often, when making a call it restarts the phone automatically. Sony has disappointed me with this piece of sh*t.

Very few LCD screens are sold guaranteed to have no dead/stuck pixels, even if it's becoming usual for them to be perfect in practice.
The "bleeding screen" sounds VERY wrong though, and definitely something I'd take it back for until you get one that's right, though it's probably almost certainly unrelated to the stuck pixel which is a manufacturing defect at the silicon level and nothing to do with any abuse during assembly or warehousing.

Keep asking for a replacement until you get what youve paid for. This is a fault so your warranty covers you! Dont accept their excuses!

Not dropped, not performed too much pressure on screen. This is the third phone that I replaced with the same symptoms. The service doesn't want to accept my complaint anymore. So I am wondering if anyone else has this problem.

also can any one tell me the code to test led on this cell
Re camera quality and illuminated strip queries, see the FAQ, at http://personal.goznet.co.uk/xperiau-faq/
I have come across reports that:
# Camera is so pathetic in Xperia U as much as the pics seem to taken from a cheap Chinese phone.
# The loudspeaker volume is as low as people even missed some calls. xLOUD doesn't make a difference it seems.
# Network keeps getting disconnected every half an hour.
How true are the above claims? I almost bought the phone, but, after those claims I am having second thoughts.
