I suggest that you try to repair the phone software using PC Companion..

Before repairing your device you may want to backup your information first. Check out this topic for more information on how to.
How to backup?

If the issue should still remain I think that this needs to be examined and fixed at a repair center. For more information about how to submit your phone for repair and where, contact your local support team.

Re: Xperia acro s (LT26w) is not connecting to internet [Urgent]

Hello I finally got rid of the problem though by not your method Slightly smiling Face . As my phone is rooted i just modified the 'hosts' file located in 'etc ' folder by rootexplorer and my google sync is solved......


The process is

> first open rootexplorer (make sure root privilege is granted to rootexplorer).

> touch on root

> touch on 'Mount r/o' if mounted as R/W

> touch on etc

> touch on 'hosts'

> from the poped up menu select 'text editor'

> There are two IP adresses I think ...put a ' # ' before the second IP adress.

> Then from the menu option select 'save changes' & I think the problem is solved.


P.S. make sure your time and date are correct by selecting network provided time and date
