the icon on the camera menu to switch to the front camera and back seems to have dissapeared after SE latest update using PC companion.
How should I access it ?

I haven't heard of this before, so let's see if anyone else comes forward with that issue.
Could you try another application like Skype to see if you can use the front camera in that application?

I have exactly the same problem, but I don't remember if it was after the update. Skype is not showing front camera too. Is there another way to test it?

I have seen this issue on another thread, which I will go have a look for. I think it was resolved by running the update again using the repair option.
However you can test your front camera by accessing the test menu. From the Dial Pad type in
*#*#7378423#*#* (basically it spells 'service' if you were texting old school)
Then select Service Tests and secondary Camera and see if you can spark it in to life.
I'll pop back with the link to the other thread.

Ok there are various threads about this issue but this one seems to have an answer... http://talk.sonymobile.com/message/173676#173676#1
You could also have a look in the 'More Like This' box at the right hand side of each of the threads, gives you an idea of what other people have tried.
Let us know how you get on.

Thanks for the test menu number, very useful! But unfortunately the message is "This device does not support the function"... do you have another suggestion? I will try to repair the phone using PC Companion in the next days, if it doesn't work I will have to call assistance...
I have read similar threads, but I didn't find them useful.

facing the same problem after upgrading to 4.0.4. Ran the service test by using *#*#7378423#*#* front camera works fine there... but no option to "SWITCH CAMERA" while running the main camera to snap pics.. Plz help..

I was trying to find the front camera option after update since I remembered it being in the GB... so I took some steps and found it...
When you run your camera on Picture taking mode you see SCN AUTO on the left upper corner... click it and you would find the option for fronth camera..
