Is there any way to change XZP single Sim(G8141) to XZP dual (G8142) with software update?

Is there any way to change XZP single Sim(G8141) to XZP dual (G8142) with software update?

Or is it impossible to change because of its hardware? 

 

I bought my Xperia XZP from retail shop, but they wouldn't refund or change it without having problem with network quality or it's not defective merchandise. 

 

I wanted dual sim card model but they didn't even mentioned the product they selling is dual sim or not. I can't blame them because I didn't look up for more detail, but kinda sad that I made such a mistake. Recently I found out dual sim card model is not exist in our country. What a suprise Slightly frowning Face

 

Therefore, I'm looking for any other way to use dual sim card with changing software version or something, if there is.

Please help me if you have any good idea. 

If there isn't any way to change it, I should just stuck with it.

 

Have a good day Slightly smiling Face

 

*I'm just qurious, but is there any hardware difference between G8141 and G8142 for sim card slot? I was able to put my second sim card into the slot, and it seems my phone was able to recognize the second sim card. It just looks like doesn't support the network service with its software somehow. That's why I'm asking here.

The difference is hardware I'm afraid, so unfortunately a firmware flash will just damage your device.
