They asked me to, and I did. I don't know if I absolutely had to - I'm sure it was to help prove the warranty, but the warranty lasts for two years and the phone has only just been released for a year.. so it couldn't be out of warranty even if I wanted it to be!

okay, thank you. I bought my phone on ebay from somebody who just didn't want it last year. I hope that's not an issue.

Warranty is only 1 year my friend.

Most manufacture warranties on consumer electronics are 1 year, including phones.
Phones: Motorola Atrix 4G ---> Samsung Galaxy Nexus (temporarily) ---> LG Optimus 3d ---> Samsung Galaxy SII LTE Skyrocket ---> LG Optimus G ---> Sony Xperia ZL ---> Motorola Moto G

Thanks: XDA and all its members. Without you I'd still be an uneducated bumpkin complaining about my shi**y phone.

The problem seemed to be with the battery. They replaced that, and also seem to have fixed a problem I had with the proximity sensor too.

If your phone is still in warranty and you're experiencing this issue, I would definitely recommend sending it off. I am usually pretty cynical about sending items off for repair, but I was SO impressed with what I've got back. It broke my heart to have my phone turn off unexpectedly and at the smallest action.. but now it works, and I'm in love with my ZL again.

It definitely wasn't a software problem either because I tried two versions of CM and one version of stock before they fixed it as a hardware fault. Send it off for repair!

My phone's from Europe, and I'm pretty sure it's two.

I got my own phone back. It took two or three weeks. But mine is a special case because I sent it to a UK repair centre and this phone hasn't been released in the UK. They almost told me to send it back to Germany where I bought it from, but after a little negotiation they offered to try and repair it, and seem to have done a great job.

(ps. in English, those questions come across a little direct and harsh)
