If I am using it on the beach I do not immerse it on water..sprays are tolerable but immersion, is not safe..
If you want to immerse it on salt water you can put a water resistant skin on it,just like on the s3,since it will not corrode plastic....It's like a condom for your phone...so that it will not be infected by HIV =)..immersing it on salt water without protection is a suicide.
Watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04fAx4hkS5o
it's a skin that makes phone water resistant
Here is my opinion (Using this phone from January) READ FOR SOME USEFUL TIPS ABOUT UPDATING TO JB AND USING THE PHONE!
One of the best device you can get on your hand! Every function is at the best level! Great finish and nice design! Black color unit is a beaty! Camera features also at the best level with good light (Coz these aren't DSLRs)! Video quality is same as described above! Even in the dark good with flash! Used this phone in a POOL more than 20mins (not completely emerged) for camera purposes! Even I wash the phone when the display becomes oily because of use! (when water goes to the earphone above the display leave it for 10 minutes because water doesn't goes in but due to wetness when calling hear a low sound than normal, so let it dry) Other than that no water problem can use in any rain without that problem!(it's not a problem) My unit have a 1 dead pixel but ok great display with BRAVIA and I can't even see the dead pixel so before you buy check it out! Some times charge the phone 2s a day because of heavy DATA TRAFFIC activities and normaly 1 charging per day is enough for my normal usage! And even I have used this phone for 3days and 6h with data traffic (just used to check fb). I dont care about using when charging and unplugging when charging and even shut down and charge, I do anything due to my need! As a habbit I always kill apps after using apps! And thats all about it! Sony, so nothing to worry about! 1 of the best phone in the market! I wanted to buy a Galaxy S4 because of its cool features but still using this because of S4 plastic played out design!waiting for S5 with a cool design! Feel confident to use this phone anywhere because of it's look and water resistance feature.! good way to update to JELLY BEAN is bellow!
0 - Check the PC for virus
1 - Charge the battery upto 100%
2 - Take SD out and put data into pc and format
3 - Do a factory data reset
4 - Update to Jelly Bean
5 - Start phone and do a factory data reset
6 - Put back the SD and format
WELL IT FEELS LIKE A FRESH UPDATE!!
Acro S, 20 Jun 2013James was right, Check the link,
http://userguide.sonymobile.com/referrer.php?region=global... moresalt water is different from tap water,
never put your phone on salt water because it can corrode any types of metal...even a pool water since it is salty, salt water speed up corrosion. Even a stainless steel when immersed to salt water it will corrode. A tiny amount of salt water entering your phone is very delicate because it will corrode it's parts and will hardened if not dried that's why it is not advisable to put it on salt water...Your phone is now grounded I guess because of salt water.
sorry to say man but your phone now is a zombie...It can be never be fixed again unless they replace the corroded parts. The worst that might happen is that battery will explode due to grounded parts and eventually your battery will swell if that happens that is a sign that your phone is grounded because of salt water,..Bring it to service center immediately before corrosion eat the parts completely
Is it normal in a day that the battery is low , in a normal usage ?? Sometimes i have to charge twice.

AnonD-2179, 19 Jun 2013oh, why did you put it on salt water!??you can even read it on your manual!.I didn't know it's not salty-water resistant !! But everyone use it !! I just checked the manual, it says not to use in Ocean water and swimming pool !! so what's the point of being water resistant !!???? is it all damaged now !
is there any signs that this devices would receive 4.2.2?...I hope so.but I guess it's just a dream..
actually, i was able to use this phone at the beach twice. we took pictures under water.. videos under water and its been two months since i use it in salted water.. until now its working perfectly. the only problem that i encountered with this phone is when i upgraded it to jelly bean,is the video, it hangs/logs. nothing else. i hope that sony will be able to address and resolve this particular concern of their customers.
jellybean update = slow performance, data traffic not functioning, some the apps ain't working.
hope it will fixed in the next update :(
