it will be wise to contact a Sony moderator, I'm intrigued about the Xperia Go, Sony's PR says that its water resistant, and some other places it says water proof so I would contact Rickard, Johan, Jeff, etc

Pnoy too, if you want buy my fone it surely water resistant. I already tested on the pool. 1month old. Almost 12k ko sya na bili sa mismo sony shop in sm marikina. In your case I think maybe you always pick a unlucky phone is short not 100% good as new!

Tested mine in the aquarium! ;D Had to take it out 5min later, fish were nibbling on it! LOLZ!
When I come from the beach I put it under a running tap to clean it of dust and what not, then I shake and blow it with a hair dryer just to be safe! And voilá!

If water enters your phone when you dip it in water with all covers closed then there's something wrong with it and it needs to be repaired/replaced by a service location. You should not have to cover the microphone or speaker.
The phone is however not intended to be used under water for longer periods. As uliwooly says, IP67 means that the phone can be submerged down to 1m for 30 minutes but if you start swimming with it you get another water pressure and leaving the phone in water for a longer time can cause water to enter the phone.

hi there. i've experienced the same problem with my xperia go. i tried to wash it with water and afterwards there were water leaks inside the screen that were so visible especially if the background is white. ofcourse i made sure that the charger and headset cover were really closed when i washed it but i think the water got inside the speaker. after i washed and played a song the sound got crappy for minutes and went better after. and the WORST part about buying this phone is that the warranty will be voided if water went inside it. WTH? i've tried to ask the people from where i bought it and they said i have to wait for like 2 to 3 wks before i can have it back but if the service center found out that it was really infiltrated with water the warranty would be voided. i even availed for the extended warranty but it will be voided as well. the only problem i have is the leak inside the screen but everything is stil working properly. so i'm still thinking wether to return it to them to have it checked or what? what can you guys suggest? the water now seems to be dried out a little? grrrr. so disapointed with sony

hi again! my xperia go who had a water leak inside the screen dried out. so i didn't bring it to the service center anymore. luckily, everything is still working properly. i'm still checking if the system got damaged but after 2 weeks of letting it dry it's still fine. anyway, i just dropped by to let you guys know if ever you've had same experience.
