Please let me know how to move further?
You have to insert your working SIM card.
Then hit the Menu button, goto Wireless and Network, then scroll to the bottom and select Mobile, Network Operators and select your provider.
When you turn on the phone is it detecting the SIM card?
Whatever, easiest and best thing to do is to wipe the phone clean before you use it.
Install SEUS or PC Companion from the Sony website and reflash the phone.
Check to see if the phone has an SDCard in it too....might want to format that too...clean it.
Who knows what the previous owner had on the phone.
