Default Does the Xperia Arc S housing crack?

Good day I just sold my xperia arc and planning to get the Xperia Arc s. i really like the xperia arc because i didnt have any problem with it except the crack on the housing which occurred twice. It was replaced twice by SE. I would want to get the Arc S because of the white housing which i really like. My question is, has anyone experienced a crack on their Xperia Arc S? I do not know if they have corrected the problem with the housing especially the one near the censor with the Xperia Arc S. Hope anyone could share

I just hope that SE has really modified the ARC S housing this time.

Several users have already posted they have no issues but I want to step in and comment anyway.

I work with social media at Sony Ericsson and see and hear a lot of different problems/stories and so far I have not seen one single user saying his or her arc S have cracked.

I heard that fixed case will be available in January for the old Arc, is that right or can we already get the fixed one for our old Arc, if it has the crack?

And where can I find a german statemant that it's handled under warranty?
In a Vodafone shop here in Germany they said the problem isn't known and I'd have to pay the ~100€ myself.

Hi Markus and welcome to XDA forums (if this is really you)
Have you heard anything for the original Arc? And what about it?
Do they use a reinforced replacement or the same ****ty plastic?
D'oh!

Thanks! I can promise it really is me.

Yes. We have made changes to improve the front cover on the phone. I don't work with repair myself and I don't know what exactly has been changed. I have just been informed that some changes have been made to make the cover better.

So if you have this crack on the front cover on Xperia arc, hand it in at a service centre together with the receipt and it should be handled within warranty.

Ok, gonna go to a service center in early January to get the new housing
Thanks for the information.

Do I need to reflash it and wipe my data or can I give it to repair with my data and custom stuff like DooMKernel?
Software stuff shouldn't void warranty on the case imo
