UK Sony Xperia Z updates for unbranded phones.

Could somebody from Sony please explain why thousands of us are now 3 updates behind now regarding firmware updates? 

We are still on 434!

How do we get Sonys attention on this?

Re: UK Sony Xperia Z updates for unbranded phones.

i;m still on 434.Three and Vodafone have the 4.2.2 update but all the unbranded Z gets nothing. Their reply will be as per usual "it has to be approved by the carrier/operator". These mobiles are sim free and there is no requirement for this to be approved by the carrier or operator. Looks like we just have to wait. I have checked SUS and PC Companion every day and says i have the latest software! My last Sony phone:smileyangry:

I get the impression Sony really don't care either way.   As much as I like the phone it will probably be my first and last Sony phone.  I'm noticing quite a few people saying the same thing too.

Sony do not care. I am still on 434 and my phone has a number of severe bugs: microphone not working, voice search unknown error etc in video camera; see the posts on these issue on this website and XDA Developers etc by alot of people including myself. Sony told me to update and repair phone via PC Companion. That did not work then Sony said oh sorry those bugs are a known firmware fault that will be addressed in a future firmware update. So here I im July with a UK unbranded Xperia Z that cost just under £550 that does not have a working video camera and I cannot use any voice activated app etc on let alone Voice Search etc.  Firmware updates such as 307 have come and gone since I reported the problems to Sony. Sony could not care less and customer service just ignore problems. In short do not buy Sony. I too liked the phone and all I want is for it to work!  What really takes the biscuit is no apology from Sony just standard replies. If I do not get a firmware update soon I am contacting the credit card company that I used to buy the phone to get my money back as the phone does not basic functionality. Luckily you can do that in UK!

Still on 434.  Still no sign of an update,  still 3 updates behind.

This is ridiculous.

Re: UK Sony Xperia Z updates for unbranded phones.

my xperia z u.s sim free is also stuch with 434 still. from what it looks like the free sim xperias z are all stuck with 434. so how do we get someone at sony to give us a clear answer as to when to expect the updates. we pay full price for our phones and are treated like we got it on discount or something.
