Pretty Good Phone
I. Myers, Amazon
6 January 2014
Summary: This is a pretty good phone except for the dysfunctional alarm feature. If you touch the phone wrong while your alarm is going off it will clear the alarm display (snooze or dismiss) from the screen. The phone does not allow you to turn the alarm off from the alarm settings, the only way you can turn off the alarm is to pull the battery. CRAZY............I use my alarm everyday.....so this is a big annoyance for me.
Summary: Amazon is one of the last great places to buy stuff and I order from here alot I got this phone about a year ago and it is great I like it better than my s3 but it sits in a drawer because sony has no Idea how to keep customers when I plug the phone in it says I have an update I go through a long update process only to find out that it wont update(I have done this at least a hundred times I have emails I have been saving) so I call and email them and ask for help they...
Summary: You should be warned.This international version is not capable of receiving 4G in the US.It is using a different European standard.The most you can get is 2G...very,very slow. Otherwise a fantastic and stylish phone.
Excerpt: I bought this phone a little over a month ago. The moment I received it, I flashed the official Ice Cream Sandwich update from Sony, therefore I can't comment on how the performance was with the original Gingerbread firmware. The first disappointment is with its size. With Sony selling a *mini* Pro model, you'd expect the non-mini Pro model to be a bit bigger. I wasn't expecting Galaxy Note big but yeah, this phone is way too fricking small!
Summary: Bought this phone because of name brand and features advertised but the first one I recieved didn't work right. returned it and got a replacement only to find out that the phone's is partially locked and will not allow data over the phone network.
Summary: Used it for a month and... It randomly recognized my old sim card. The phone company gave me a new sim card and is stable so far. It never connected better than Edge. Now I know this phone only has 3G if the provider is CDMA. Under GSM will use 2G or EDGE. The white keyboard indoors backlit by a white light makes the letters disappear. Terrible. Long pressing a letter will not write the number alternative. If I take the battery off, it will go to Jan. 5 1980.
