Did you active any stamina mode or any battery saver settings? If yes then try turning them off. Or have you installed any task killers or battery saving apps, you should uninstall them.

I've had this problem all day and it's done my.head right in!
After 3 hours of trying various things I did this:
1. Turn on flight mode through settings so you have the aeroplane icon at the top of your phone
2. Restart the phone
3. When the phone reboots, hold the power button in and switch off aeroplane mode through here
That made it work. Hope it helps someone else out

I have the exact same problem, Markz3. Did u manage to find a solution to this problem? Could it be a hardware issue like a messed up antenna?
When the 'phone powers up, if you press the power button on the side the Airplane Mode is always ON. If you switch it off it goes off but there is still no sevrice.
Looking through services menu shows the box for airplane mode un-ticked. If you set it and turn it off again the power button mode says it's still on.
If you tick and use the power mode to turn it off the service menu option un ticks but there is still not service. When trying to make a call it says you need to turn the flight mode off.

Sorry to inform you the bad news, but I had to send my Z3 from Brazil for SONY US (because it was purchased in Orlando -FL and here did not give warranty !) for repair.
Good news, SONY exchanged the unit for a new one. Not yet arrived in Brazil since asked a relative to bring it for me.
At the end do not know what was the reason. If it was a manufacturing defect or because I took him to the pool.
Now I will be afraid to wet the device ... Probably will not go.
Surely I will not !!!
I hope you have tha same end.

New phone 3 days old, got stuck in flight mode so I saved everything to sd
My Z3 will not come out of airplane mode. Tried every thing including a complete reset to basics.
Anyone else seen this ?
and done a system reboot I got so frustrated!! Now in the start up it gets to the Google 'get started' into and says ' checking info' this is as far as I get!! Cannot use my new phone... Any ideas??
