I'm currently having an issue when I connect headphones (via the jack) to my new Z1. It brings up the smart connect "Search for more applications" window with the choice of "None".
I have to tell it every time that I don't want it to do anything.
It appears that the Z1 thinks I've connected a Headset, not headphones, and pressed the "app key". I am using standard in ear sennheiser headphones that have no buttons or mic, and I have tried other headphones with the same effect.
First things first, how do I get it to recognise that I have plugged in a headphone not headset?
Secondly, how can I stop it asking me everytime? (all I need is a tickbox to say "don't ask again")
Hope there is someone who can help.
(I have searched the forum already, but I'm sorry if this is a duplicate)

This issue has been fixed in new firmware ( version .534).
You should update your phone via PC Companion or Sony Update Service once the update is available in your region. It fixes this issue, extends battery life and brings some improvements to the camera too.

Thank you for the quick reply.
I had seen there was an issue with the headset supplied with the phone had been fixed in the 534 update. It looks like a similar issue but not identicle but I am willing to wait to see if the firmware update does indeed fix it.
I see the update has already been released in some countries, any one know when the UK will be getting it?

It is available worldwide for some time now, but I heard in UK there are some delays.
If you really are in rush wit this, you can always flash the firmware by yourself with FlashTool, but if I were you I would wait a little longer to do this the standard way, so no backup/restore procedure is needed (flashing with everything but PCC will erase everything from the phone).

It's only mildly annoying, not the end of the world, so will wait for official OTA / Companion update.
