    Hi guys, I have been using my ARC for almost a month now.
    Lately I noticed that the phone will switch off & then on again by itself.
    Wonder if any ARC's users have the same problem?
    Cheers mate!!

    I am still experiencing this "Switch-off" problem by itself for no apparent reason whatsoever. I am sending my phone to SE Service Centre tomorrow & have them check it out as I have only bought it a month ago. I might as well share with you my experience so far with Android phones. I have used 4 Android phones including this ARC.
    My 1st was the Google Nexus1, SE X10 Mini, HTC HD & now the ARC. It has come a long way in the way of Software updates & the Gingerbread 2.3.3 is by far the best. It has to be as it is the latest update. The editing & "copy & paste" still have a long way to go. IMHO is still not not user friendly enough. No doubt it has improved a lot but there are still room for improvement. Before I forget to mention about the battery life as well. It sucks & I presume most if not all Android phones are. Cheers mate!

    Thank you for the feedback, it is always nice to hear from someone who has had experience with a variety of other Android handsets.

    Have you tried to run a software update to resolve this?

    I HAD the same problem with my Xperia arc, so I ran some tests of my own since customer support showed no help. I realised the problem was with the battery or the part connecting the battery to the mobile.

    To resolve the problem I just jammed the battery tightly up agents the part it needs to connect to using some folded up paper.

    It's been several months since I did this and the problem has never occurred again.
    I hope this works for you also.

    I got my Arc on launch and of course was gadget-happy and installed a ton of apps. Then shortly after I started experiencing random reboots
