Re: Xperia Arc housing cracks?

fortunately my Arc didn't have that crack..  Only the crack my fiancee did when it's just 18 hours old!!!!

The bad thing about buying SE phones, you can't find any housing/case if you want to change it.  My ex x10 is now getting old, and I still cant find a new case for it..  My daughter is getting sick and tired of waiting... she demands new.. darn!

Re: Xperia Arc housing cracks?

hello i'm italian, but my arc is deutsche.

hey same problem for me on my blue arc.

I contacted SE via chat too, i had talk with an italian staff, and she told me the same things, that it is NOT COMMON problem, and no one contact them before me -.-

f******* s.e. !!

This morning I brought my SONY ARC with cracks in the housing to S.E. service in Naples, Italy.
They told me that I will have to wait 15-20 days, but it will probably not under warranty, because of cracks' housing !!! -.-
I hope SONY ERICSSON GLOBAL will solve it my problem Slightly frowning Face
SONY ERICSSON READ THOSE POSTS !!!!!!!!!! IT IS VERY COMMON PROBLEM !!!!!!!!

(sorry for the bad english)

Hi Everyone,

As my colleague Markus mentions on the Facebook link above, we are investigating these concerns, and we will share when we have more information.

I'll be sure to post here, and in the other threads on the forum where this is being discussed.

Re: Xperia Arc housing cracks?

Same here!

Midnight Blue Xperia Arc. Bought it 3 months ago in the Netherlands. Never ever dropped it but now it has a crack in the housing above the light sensor...

Experienced similar problems with my previous phone, the Xperia X1. This appeared to be a common problem.

Seems like SE isn't able to produce phones with solid housings. Think I'll move over to another brand next time...

Bummer!
