Disagree vehemently with other reviews.
If you are considering purchasing an Experia Arc, think twice. Sony Ericcson do not properly support this phone with after service.
Two weeks after I got the phone the battery wouldn't charge. I was told the issue was a lifted pin in the mini USB and that it was user error and wouldn't be covered under warranty. Took over 3 weeks for the part to arrive to enable the phone to be fixed and $110. Next day the phone needed charging and wouldn't. A pin in both the mini USB and the cable had lifted and yep you guessed it, Sony Ericcson denied all responsibility - same story "user errror not covered under warranty".
This was despite the backing of the authorised repairer who also pointed out to the company that the mini USB plug was square not like typical ones that have one side of the plug which is wider.
Ironically, I bought a cheap $30 Sony Ericcson Cedar to tie me over while other being fixed and its mini USB is your typical one.

renso_82, 18 Apr 2012Assasin i recomen to format ur sd card make a backup to ur pc for not lose ur dataAssassin, I would like add to renso_82's comment below.
Connect to PC and move all data from sd card to PC. Format SD card. When formatting, make sure that the Quick Format option is unchecked. Do a full format. It will take a long time but it might fix the issue. Then move all the data back to sd card and disconnect from PC. I'm not sure if this will fix the issue but it is worth trying.

MP2 files are also read as (.mp3) format files like MP3 (.mp3) files if you see the file using file manager. But if you open the file's IDtags, you'd be able to see whether it is MP2 or MP3.
