I had the same problem when trying out whatsapp, it stays connected no matter what you do, you can manually kill the connection and about 2 seconds later it will reconnect. Solution, delete whatsapp, or any other app that may require permanent connectivity. Other than that, I think its an excellent phone for what i need.
I just bought one. I'm sending it back.
Cheap and nasty build quality. The software makes the phone hard to navigate, crashes frequently, takes forever to reboot. The connectivity is horrible and makes life far more difficult than it need be. What should be possible over Bluetooth is not and requires switching to a USB cable AND manually switching connectivity modes on the phone. After 2 days of the phone crashing, drivers failing to install and general all round frustration I am changing it.
Their support line is useless, the operative didn't even know how the phone works and wasn't prepared to find out.
I will NEVER get a Sony again.
The best thing about my phone delivery was it came with returns stickers so I can get rid of the damn thing.
Horrible, nasty phone, don't get one, you have been warned!
the pro also has the slide out keyboard where the reg one does not
Bought this phone a week ago in RSA(ZA). Cons: Always connected to 3G/HSDPA even when all applications closed, which KILLS the battery (have to charge twice daily), lack of apps+games the size of the screen(play at half screen),GPS Reception only work well with google maps (i.e. No Voice guide) and lack of WOW factor. Pros: Video Recording, Picture quality, swf wallpaper+games, the standard theme, call logs include data connections.
AnonD-1270, 10 Feb 2011Its hard to choose between Vivaz or vivaz pro.. Can anyone tell me which one is better?The regular Vivaz has an 8 MP camera, but no keyboard, the Vivaz Pro has a full QWERTZ keyboard but "only" 5.1 MP. Both can record HD video, so I'd definately go for the Pro version. If you don't intend to print the photos in XXL (eg. on posters etc.), you'll find no difference between a 5MP and a 8MP shot (the MegaPixels only show the resolution, but have very little to do with the actual quality of the photos - a lot of other things are more relevant to picture quality. Just compare a picture taken on a cheap 2MP phone camera to one taken with a professional, designated photo camera at 2MP resolution, and you'll see there's a big difference).
