    Or change the screen brightness from bright to less bright. Helps save my battery life a bit.

    It might be a heat issue. I've had 2 replacement handsets that kept resetting themselves due to heat issues. Once the phone gets damaged once due to heat (and this is a common issue with the Xperia), then the damage has been done.

    My first handset reset itself when I was using Google Navigation while the phone was charging in the car, and that was how I proved it to the people in the shop: I plugged it in and messed around with maps for a minute and then it reset. Did it again, same thing.

    It's worth mentioning that I managed to get a replacement through my operator in the UK *after* the 1 year manufacturer warranty passed because the phone was basically faulty.

    I forgot to update this.
    I bought two new battery's off ebay for $6.
    Guess the battery got screwed.

    Works great now, doesnt shut off at all. Im so happy because I would literally not use my phone in less I had too in fear of shutting off...

    Yup, still working fine.

    I cant wait to get rid of this phone next month though. It lags so much.
