    No mobile internet? No WiFi? Both? Do you still have phone/SMS? What happens when you try to connect?

    If you don't provide a decent amount of information all anyone can do is ask more questions.

    If you have a mobile signal but no mobile data the problem may be with your account with your service provider rather than your phone (unless you have corrupted your APN settings - "Access Point Names").

    Is this with mobile data, WiFi or both? I will be surprised if it's both, but it will be important to know since the possible causes are different (and if it's actually both that will eliminate a lot of possibilities).
    If only mobile data does not work and the device still works for calls and SMS, have you checked your APN settings (they'll be in the mobile data settings somewhere)? That is the most likely cause in that case. Otherwise I would check whether your SIM works in a different phone - if you put it in a different phone and still have no data connection then you should speak to your carrier/service provider, as that would suggest the problem is either with your account or their systems.

    So your phone didn't break, you broke it?

    OK, this is really important: I thought that you had developed a fault with the phone, SIM or account. Now it turns out you have rooted the phone and been manually deleting apks from the system. It's taken 4 rounds of question and answer for you to reveal this, and we cannot help you if you keep things from us. So what else have you removed, because removing Chrome won't break other browsers and won't break GMail (I keep Chrome disabled on my phone, and it was never installed on my previous phone, so I know that GMail does not require it)? If you keep giving partial answers people will lose patience, so it would be best tell us everything you have done to this phone now rather than holding back crucial information like this.

    But actually I think the solution is simple: you either flash a new custom ROM or you reflash the phone with stock software. Either way this will give you a new, complete ROM and hence fix whatever you've done (reflashing to stock will also unroot the phone). Unless of course you took a nandroid backup before you started deleting things from /system (and you should always take a nandroid before you change /system in any way whatsoever), in which case restoring the backup will fix things.

    is the phone rooted? how did you delete chrome.apk? we need more info then just 3 words or so, if you want us to help you. if this is because you are not very fluent in english then use google translate. just type what you want to say in your own language and then copy and paste the english translation.

    ok well i can't help you without more info. the only things that come to mind is to flash a firmware update or try a hard reset.

    A reset won't restore a browser they've deleted from the system. But as I say, breaking Chrome won't stop other browsers from working (because the only device I have Chrome installed on at all has it disabled), so there has to be more than that done to the phone.

    But I see no alternative to reflashing the phone. It's the simplest solution, and since the OP isn't willing to explain more than the barest details it's the only one I can propose.

    But it's also a solution that will work, so the phone is definitely not broken beyond repair. It just requires the OP to do it.

    mine rom is android 4.2.2

    That still does not help us or help you. You will need to flash a firmware update....not sure how Sony does the firmware flashing as every manufacturer is different.

    Then see whether you can find the same firmware to reflash it.

    But honestly, it's really frustrating trying to help you because you refuse to give any information. I assume that you have rooted the phone in order to break it the way you describe, but you won't even say that. Are you using a custom ROM or have you just rooted the official software? That makes a huge difference to how you reflash it: with a custom ROM you just go back into your custom recovery and flash the ROM again (or restore a nandroid backup, assuming you had made one). With stock software you will have to locate it (from Sony, or from elsewhere on the web) and use whatever software Sony use for manually flashing phones (which will be manufacturer-specific, and I've never owned a Sony so know nothing about this). And reflashing stock software will remove root.

    And in the absence of any more information from you that is all I can say. And I'm not going to keep asking for information, if you don't even try to provide information about what you've done then I'll just stop reading this thread.

    I will however ask one further question, just out of curiosity: why do you want to keep Android 4.2.2? It's an ancient version, and every month fewer and fewer apps will be compatible with it. And I can't say I have terribly fond memories of it from when I last used it (6-7 years ago). So why are you so keen to keep this particular version?
