    • Why Arc S is in Midnight Blue colour, not in black? Arc is in Silver and Midnight Blue, but Arc S should be in BlackPinkWhite. P.S. Sorry for my bad English ]:
      Arc S is available in midnight blue and also available in black. However we haven\'t got stock allocation for black as some colours go to networks. Please see full colour release on sony ericsson website as its available in 5 different colours.:-) thanks.

    A Standby time specification is an industry standard. The only intention is to allow comparison of different mobile phones under the same circumstances. Factors including - but not limited to - network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and cell traffic strongly effect standby power consumption. Therefore, Standby time specification comparisons of different mobile phones can only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile phone in real life - ie, under circumstances for which the mobile phone is intended - the actual standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on factors as mentioned above.
