I asked some ebay seller and some of them are willing to do this.

So you should try it.

AFAIK, most of them have the first batch, i.e. 12W08~12W10, rev AAAB.

I don't think that knowing the batch or week where it comes from would be of any help since Sony hasnt given any clear cut-off or official statement on when or what batch we need to find to have a defect-free screen.

Sony hasn't directly provided any info.

But there are leaked repair center docs indicating it is hardware related and how to determine the problem

It's been posted here before.

Yes this is the problem because Sony hasnt provided us with any clear info. Its very clear that its a hardware issue and its also easy to determine if it has it or not. But what i am after is to know on what batch is it safe to buy the Xperia S. I already bought one and sold it because i cannot claim warranty because it was a grey import. I would want to buy again but i want to make sure that it does not have that problem anymore since its really a hassle to exchange it when the problem occurrs. I am located in the Philippines and excahnges here are really a hassle and most Sony reps here are ignorant of the problem.

Good luck waiting for Sony providing the specific info you want.

I read the repair center doc and know that I want a revision AB phone, 12W15.

In this case, then when i would buy, i will look for this specific batch. By the way, how was it stated in the repair center doc that convinced you to look for this specific batch?
