A lot of problems with my Xperia S,HELP PLEASE!

Hello guys,I'll get straight to the point...
I bought an xperia S in October 2013,The first 2 days everything was okay,it all worked but i had the notification to upgrade to JB (not sure which version it was i think it was .200)after i updated that,a newer version came and so I installed the .196 version.The next day my auto rotation did not work,phone started loosing signal and it did not reckognize my micro SIM  card.
I still use the phone but today i noticed that i can not recieve messagesand i found out that the glass bar under my screen should glow,but it never did.So the problems are:
-Auto rotation does not work,can not recieve messages,glass bar does not glow,sometimes looses signal and shows no SIM card,
I am a fan of sony and all my phones were Sony Ericsson products and i was always happy so I hope someone will help and thanks for helping!

Have you tried another SIM card?

Could you try a software repair with SUS first?

Yes i have tried it,several times and it never fixed any of the problems but reduced the sim card problems,it didnt happen a long time until yesterday.
The messaging problem is most annoying ,could it be cause i am using battery saving?When phone is on standby the wifi and data usage turns off so is there any possibility that it might turn off incoming messages?

Thanks for helping

Incoming messages from default app or from a 3rd party app?
