Atavar, 25 May 2012Hey there, i've come across something of a fix to my battery woes. I found this and my handset... moreYes, switching from GSM/3G to GSM could increase the battery life, but if you're in 3G coverage area it's more easy if you keep switching to hybrid connections, just disable data traffic if you're not using internet connection, then the phone will automatically working on GSM only eventhough phone status says otherwise.
I dont know the price at SE store in hyderabad, i'm not from India. Ask univercell... ^_^

Is there any other way to upda... moreif its no hassle to you then you could try a factory reset. i reset mine and im pretty sure straight after that i noticed there were slight changes to the UI. Specifically that i now have the option to update to ics via wifi (without a laptop/pc). I know this sounds like bs but when i click on the link thats on my phone..."new sytem update available" (ics) that has been flashing on my phone since i bought it, then it has a download button and a little box that is ticked saying download via wifi only wifi. I havent bothered updating as im not in wifi areas that often, and the phone works fine. Maybe i am confused.....but im sure it changed to now being FOTA (firmware over the air)
One of the best middle range phones out there in the market. Believe me when I say the best.. I have been using a lot of phones but nothing gave me such satisfaction., be it the specs, the looks of the phone.. the sony ericsson xperia mini pro is a little devil I would say when compared to many 2012 model phones :)
Update Problem !!!
Laptop hangs and phone gets switched off. Is there any other way to update the software, can anyone help?
Hey there, i've come across something of a fix to my battery woes. I found this and my handset had the same reception/battery use issue. http://talk.sonymobile.com/message/143566#143566 As a first time Android user i was not aware choosing the GSM/WCDMA option was going to effect it so badly in my reception area. Now its GSM only it appears to have a standard battery drain, which is a relief. If this information was included in the box/mentioned at point of sale, i feel a lot more people would get on a lot better with this handset :)

I think it's more easy to optimise hardware for ICS from the start than tweaking it for upgrade if it was optimised for older version like gingerbread.
probably ur rite st-21i with minimum requirements its running thts too good but thhen y in the hell is sony not launching ics on xmp
does anyone know of any software that i can then add my videos to my pc/laptop. I have heard of sonys v screen but wondered if there are any other ones.
msm8225 processor is not good enough to run ics on so little ram top of that it doesnt have any graphic derviatives so it becomes slow as well that is wat is bothering me wer as ics runs like butter on arc s and play coz they have msm8260 processor which is very powerfull and good graphic sys
I found this a great phone, not only cus is very cheap considering the specs but also cus the style is great the soft is very goood, it runs almost all the cool 3d hd games(MC3,Backstab,GTA3,etc) smoother than the average in that range of price. the screen size cud be better but the keyboard compensates it. i wud rather this than the defy or optiimus black

It uses the same chipset used by Xperia X8 (over clocked),
AnonD-56078, 24 May 2012hey guys plz reply me i think it'll not be a problem, sony will do some modifications for the ics to suit for specs of minipro. 've been using this phone since it's launch n found it absolutely nice, i bought it when it was launched i spent around 16.500 that time
