    “If your phone has stuck on the welcome screen or boot screen, just remove the battery and re insert it and do the above steps again.”

    After I tried to boot, Sony logo appears but it resets, unable to start the phone…So, how exactly will I be able to take off the battery if it is not removable?
    P.S.: I already tried holding the OFF Button until it vibrate three times.
