I have Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc LT15a and suddenly the phone started to reboot itself. I'm assuming it's the memory is too low to load the OS main screen. Now, I have important data on the phone internal memory under the app called NoteEverything and I'm desperately trying to retrieve it somehow. Is there a way to start up the Xperia Arc in safe mode and delete some apps to free up memory? OR should I open the phone and disconnect some hardware maybe this will free up memory? How can I copy the ROM info which is the internal memory of the phone to another device or extra storage?

What should I do, what do you suggest? I am willing to do the impossible to have it up and running so at least I get my data backup!

p.s., I don't want to use the PC companion and delete my internal ROM coz it will delete everything and I don’t want this in the first place.

  • I'm a little shocked that the app doesn't have a built-in way to back up its data.

    I'm not familiar with this device. Does it have an SD card? Were you storing your data there? If so, you can probably drop that into a SD card reader (or another phone) and pull the data off that way.

  • @user267 NoteEverything has backup functionality included, and does backups to SDCard. At least with the Pro version. As I went straight to buy it, I cannot speak for the free version.

  • @Sam Did you try the safe-mode? It is available for your device (just google it: hard to find how to enter it, most people are concerned to get out again): when booting, simply hold the left and right button below the screen and press on until it loaded. (source)

  • Removing SIM
  • Restart phone then go to setting -wireless networks-more-mobile n/w-n/w operator
  • Here you select search mode manual then select your network in 2G mode(ex. Vodaphone 2g or Airtel2g etc). Make sure not to select a 3G network.
