Over 3 years now......looked to replace it but don't want to pay for internet. Will maybe look for a better camera. Sony now has an 8 MP camera. But the reviews are not good on sound quality when talking. Stick with what works. Great phone!

Goes dead unpredictably

Like the phone in general.. had it for maybe going on three years now?? camera has replaced my more expensive digitals.. not perfect pictures, but very convenient in most lighting situations.. dont really use the music stuff much anymore.. used to..

My complaint with it is that I can't seem to find any way to keep the phone in a useable mode.. sleeping would be okay.. but this thing goes off totally in about 10 or 15 seconds! Then when I want to make a call. I have to go through the whole process of unlocking. and menu /dialogue stuff.. I don't recall that it was always this bad... wondering if there is some way to set it up differently.. have looked at settings .. no joy.. would sure like it better if I could leave it running when I want to and turn it off at my discretion.. seems a simple thing, but who knows how/?

Excellent phone

I have had this phone for 3 years now and ready to replace just because it is worn out and the contract is over.

This is the best quality phone I have ever owned! I will be a die-hard Sony owner!

My brother - who is 200 pounds heavy - stepped on my phone while it was on concrete ground and only shattered my protective case and scratched the phone in the first year I bought it. The phone has worked perfectly before AND after the incident.

I've also dropped this phone many many times yet it has proven to be very sturdy.

Sony photo quality also exceeds most brands that I've seen uploaded online - I would say the best (especially my parents sony phone that takes 3megapixel photos with a real flash).

totally recommend higher-end Sony models in general.

One change I would make: camera shutter sound is very loud and obnoxious. There is no option to turn it off (which I understand at the time it was made there were certain laws on cell phone cameras)

No caller id?

I've had the phone for a little more then a year now. I don't text alot.. around 30 a day. By the time 10 comes around the battery is dying when i charged it last night. Since it's not under waranty, i can't get it repaired without paying alot. Also for some reason, whenever someone calls me, it doesnt show a name or number, even if the person calling is a contact. It just says UNKNOWN. It's always been like that. I didnt get very many calls now but now i do and it's a pain not knowing whos calling me. Im not sure if it's a phone defect or my service provider but it's really annoying. Also the shutter sounds. If im taking pictures with my phone at 2 am and trying not to wake up my roommate,i dont have the option to turn it off, plus all the shutter sounds are ugly and gross.
