Xperia s Problems

Hello

Í've got some problems with my Xperia S. It doesn't lock or unlock most of the time so the only i can unlock it is by taking fast pictures, but after taking 300 photos it started to get a bit annoying. Turning it of when also pushing the volume button didn't do a thing. Does anybody know how to solve this?

Thanks

Re: Xperia s Problems

Sounds really strange, I have no such problems on mine. Try to run a software repair on the phone using PC Companion.

Re: Xperia s Problems

You will never have any problem with your handset (because you may got this phone free),... its the only customer who face issues...

neither you will see a problem nor will you have it because you are customer support from a **** company who does not care about customers.

from yellow tint issue till cracking sound near the transparent part of the phone ,... there is no problem at all.

Re: Xperia s Problems

I was going to do this so i tried to make a back up but pc companion stops working at 95% of the back -.-.

I tried it about 10 times but then i gave up. Is there anyway it won't do this? I'm getting kinda sick off it since i wouln't like to send my phone and get it back 6 weeks later without my files :l

I would use some of this options to backup

Make sure you backup everything

Settings -> privacy -> Back up my data and Automatic restore should be selected

and also

SMS/MMS/Call Logs

Install "backup SMS+" to back up your SMS, MMS and Call Logs  to your Gmail

or just SMS use

"backup & restore SMS"

or just MMS use "Save MMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.schwimmer.android.mmsextract&feature=search_result

Call Logs (Just call logs)

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.yang.android.ansta

Contacts

just to play it safe sync your contacts w/ google if you haven't already

open your phonebook

press MENU button -> tap on Send Contacts -> select all -> send it to your email

on your computer


-> download the file -> go to your gmail -> click on contacts -> click on more actions -> on the drop down menu click on "import" -> choose the file -> and click import
