It wont be available till another week at least I think. If it is available then better for guys who faced problem due to the earlier update (.162).

Run PC Companion and connect the phone. If there's a new software available you will be told so. If PC Companion tells you you already have the latest version you cannot update to the .171 version since it's not yet been made available for your phone.

We are investigating the problem you are describing. Right now I don't know what is causing it or if it's fixed in .171. Please try to be patient and wait for the next software and post again if you find a solution.

Unless fix this issue by SONY, use this trick to be in network!!!

Disable the Data when not using.

Settings >> Wireless & Networks >> Mobile Network >> Data Enabled uncheck this.

SONY if you are listening then the real problem is - When Data is enabled and say phone goes to sleep mode (/locks automatically) then after some time Network goes!!! But disabling data will keep the phone in network

@ravasab. In my case d network goes even if d screen is on  ...

By d way it is important to note here that even with the previous firmwares, my netwrk signal used to drop while moving frm one netwrk circle to another.
