had phone for 2 years. On occasion option 2 and leave open for few hours, then put it back together. (i.e had it in pockets whilst exercising - i get inactive sim)
I have this phone for almost 1 year, but one day it stood all day with the charger pluged in, and for some reason now it doesn't work... can anyone help me... what could be the problem ?
Have had this phone for 18 months , and i have really looked after it .From about the first 4 months it began to play up ( inactive sim)It was repaired twice under the warranty but is now once again giving problems. Sony are just not interesed with my ongoing issue. I was told by the Phone Dealer that there has always been an ongoing problem with this phone. It is a pity that Sony do not recognise this problem . Apart from this, I am happy with the product but will not purchase another of this brand
brought this phone brand new (in new zealand)was GREAT for about 7 months then it started to screw up. everything lagged, it kept saying 'ínactive sim' for some weird reason. and then eventually buttons just stopped working. havnt treated it with the best care but it has happened o many other people i know too and they hae had to all get theirs repaired at some point. they are'nt exactly built to last. otherwise its awesome, has a conversation modein txting, and good camera with heaps of editing tools
i relly enjoy having this one .....its amazing it's got everything I need
Hi everyone. :)
I do *not* recommend this phone!! I have already sent it away to be repaired once (for the common fault of a button not working), and have recently sent it away again due to the screen no longer working. I have several friends with this phone, and they are all having problems with it. Granted, I did not take the best care of my phone, but I am not the only person who's having several common problems.
Good luck with your phone buying :)
I drop mine in the washer and there's water in it. How do I get the water out?
I bought this phone today. For me, it's stylish and suits my taste excellently.
why this handphone not sold again? i m so interest about this phone... can this phone i buy with online?
There's something wrong with my button,the middle one. I had already repair it atleast 4times . Does anyone know how to fix issues with the button which always off and on? Thanks.
does anybody have information on how to fix the issues with buttons that dont work, but the rest of the phone is working ???
After usage of 2months i found some strange sounds i heard during incoming & outgoing call. I found problem solved little bit even after repair in sony service center.Then after usage of 1yr. i found the screen display became blank. I bought it in 850SR but now i found it's really bad to use. Except music nothing is spectacular.
