Mr Anonymous here is a Sony rep trying to dispel the fact this phone is a POS.
Just got my replacement unit from Sony Philippines. I'll test this for a 2-3 days and see if it's stable enough. If not, a refund is in order.. Switching to other brands if this 2nd phone is crappy.
Hi, I had the same problem because I work on a ferryboat in Europe and every day I lose my signal. But then I started putting airplane mode as soon as we would leave the port and it stoped. It's my first time to have Sony and besides this thing, I really like it.Good luck to everyone.
Is it really so bad that it can't be fixed no matter what,i'm indonesian and still waiting for this phone.should i just get another phone?any suggestion?

Those who have replacement phone did you gu... moreWhen I complained to Sony Service Centre about the replacement set carrying the same problem as the original set (i.e. shutdown issue) , Sony's response was that to send back the replacement set for checking (yet again !!??). It will mean another 2-3 weeks of loss time for me, without any guarantee that the problem will be solved once and for all. This time I refused.
I stopped using the Sony M5 phone, and in desperation I bought the Samsung A8 instead. It turns out to be a marvelous solution. I am now free of my nightmare with the Xperia M5,
Yes, I lost a lot of money on the M5 (am trying to get a refund from Sony, might need to go to consumer bureau for that matter) but Sony lost a loyal customer like me - and a reputable name is gone as far as I am concerned because they did not do their proper homework on the Xperia M5 phone. (I am in Malaysia). After owning many Sony phones before this incident, I swear I will never again will I buy another from Sony...

Nope. I have been waiting for this to be delivered at any Jozi MTN for a month now.
im seeing posts on the xperia m5 dual comments section about the lag/shutdown issue being fixed thru a mainboard replacement by sony, as it already acknowledged the problem (something about the hardware). can anyone else confirm this and is the single sim m5 included in the fix?
Secrets, 10 Nov 2015Has anyone in S.A. bought this phone yet? Unable to get one anywhere.try cell c. I've just ordered one through them on a R299 p/m contract..
