Re: Disappointed with Xperia Arc... :(

Hey frnds,

now I am facing a new problem from last some days. My GPRS signal keeps dropping every time despite it is showing full network coverage. Initially I thought it is related to the service provider and not the handset but when I checked the same in Samsung handset, it is showing full strength signal.. I m not getting what to do... I reseted my cell twice.. Got the GPRS setting from the provider but the problem still persists.. Slightly frowning Face

Re: Disappointed with Xperia Arc... :(

Frnd,

I tried all these options after reading all the posts related to this issue occuring in Xperia Neo V and some other handsets and after that only I decided to post it here.. After changing the network mode, it shows the signal for some time but after some time it again vanishes.. Slightly frowning Face Do I need to see the service center? But what will they do? they will may be reset the handset.. thats it.. Slightly frowning Face
