Purchased the phone for my husband. Calls keep dropping or the calls do not go through. One has to consistently restart the phone for the calls to go through which was very annoying. Contacted Sony and was given suggestions to do updates for software but still having the same issue. Slick looking phone but functioning sucks!
TRIPLEJ, 28 Oct 2012By the way, where did you get those prices???
I'm in the philippines too.http://www.cmkcellphones.com/sony_mobile.html
Hi guys! Please help me. Which one is better, Xperia Sola or Xperia U or Xperia Go? I need your suggestions please. Help me. I want the front camera and the LED notification light of Xperia U but quite small. I love the size of Xperia Sola but no front camera and short battery life. I also want the water and dust resistant of Xperia Go and I heard that it is upgradable to Jelly Bean 4.1 but its too small that if you go to the menu, only 3 rows of icons will be displayed and I hate that and also the battery life is too short and no front camera. Huhu I can't decide. :( The prices: xperia u: 8900 xperia sola: 9900 xperia go: 9900. Yes! The price of Xperia U is quite lower than the two and the Xperia Sola and Xperia Go have the same price. I am a 15 year old guy, Philippines here. so, Thanks in advance! :)

MUZIC, 27 Oct 2012how to refresh the music player?? after I moved the song from bluetooth folder to music folde... moreGo into application settings and "Clear data" for the Media Storage app. This works for rebuilding thumbnails in the image gallery if things get out of sync, and I would imagine the problem you are having is the equivalent for music files. You may need to restart the phone to complete the rescan though.
Hey guys i have updated my u to ics.

Which one is better, Xperia U or Xperia Sola? I need your anaswers please. Thanks in advance! :)
I don't think this has a 3.5" display. I'm really into this phone. But this display size is a big issue to me.
I checked it out the other day. I have an iPhone 3GS which looks to have 3.5" display but is much larger than the display of this Xperia U.
Or was the model phone in the Sony store really just smaller than the actual product??
The phone is good. But something I hated in this package was all the extras:-
1. Charger: Wire is so small that if the charger is plugged on floor, a six feet tall man can not use the phone in standing position while charging.
2. Ear Phones: For the first time I experienced the vacuum ear phone was on Sony Erricson's Walkman Series phone and the experience was amazing. But now you spend so much on the phone, but what you get is cheap (I can not even call it budget or economical) ear phones.
3. User Manual: There is practically no user manual in the box. All you get is Start Up guide which teaches you how to put sim card and put the battery, Waranty card and few more useless manuals.
4. Cover: I spend Rs.15000 on a phone, I atleast expect a branded cover in the box which will cost company maximum Rs. 150. That is maximum. Oh yes they have given the screen guard which the shopkeeper said is a substandard.
But the phone is good without a doubt.
Lot of people are curious about Temple Run on this phone. I am playing this game since I bought this phone around a month back. The game is working well. To know the difference between Xperia U and I Phone 4S Temple Run difference, I played it on my friend's 4S and he played on my Xperia U. Frankly I didnt notice any serious difference. Screen size is same, so no problem. Touch of U is equally responsive as 4S. My friend said that there is a little difference in graphics quality of U but I didnt notice. Anyways the point I want to make is this is a good phone. Even I Pads and S-IIIs have so many negative points. So if you look at overall package, Xperia U is also a good value for money phone.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2012DO NOT UPGRADE TO ICS! worst decision ive made. I was excited to upgrade to ICS without readin... moreInitially I also behaved the same way you did. Dont get so much upset. Reset your phone. Restart it a few times. The problem will be solved. I have done the same thing. If the problem doesnt get solved go to the service centre, I am sure they will be able to solve your problem.
