  3. You might then need to flash your software. If this official verified method doesn't work, there'll be certain risk on other flashing method. I've found a similar tutorial in http://goo.gl/xgwTf 

    Please note that following that method is risky and can completely damage your phone. So don't try this method unless you have no choice and you are completely sure about what you are doing.

  5. Please try to do the following:
    1. Make sure your device is fully charged.
    2. Uninstall PC Suite and other software that detects USB connection of your device.
    3. Now turn off your phone and remove SIM+SD Card.
    Then follow the above procedure again.

  9. After detecting the phone the Update Service tells me that there is no new software available for my phone (W902), and the install button does not appear! (I have used the Update Service about a week ago, and it worked just fine...) Did Sony change their update service?

  10. hi bro.I have sonyericsson naite j105i mobile, when i turn on the phone it's freezing or hanging as "searching" for network.Will the update service solves my problem.I went to ask a nearby repairer he said software has to be changed.Plz help me.

  11. If you are in a good network receptionist area and yet the problem occurs, then this could be either your software problem or hardware problem. If this is a software case, then re-flashing the system with update service "might" solve your problem.


    Also there is a chance that your phone antenna have been broken or damaged. In that case, the problem is hardware based and re-flashing will not solve your problem. You will need to go to the service center to fix it.


    Meanwhile, re-flashing the software will do no harm so I recommend you to use the Update Service first and then if the problem is still not solved, then take to to customer care or service center.
