Hi to everyone.
Yesterday I've upgraded my Z1C White ITALY, to KITKAT. I did it through SUS, doin' also a RESET, just for not having some issues and instead i've noticed a strange but serious issue ....
it has happened two times today ...
It happens that sounds about some music, notifications, videos, are not put directly to the external speaker, but these are diffused into the ear-piece, and I dont ear headphones ... Now I'm doing a reset through PC Companion ... what could it be ?
Thank you for your interest.
Sorry 4 my bad english

I have the same problem.
Upgraded to 4.4.2 through PC Companion.
Yesterday it was ok, I did not modify any sound settings and suddenly today all notifications and call sounds go to the earpiece instead of speaker (i think since the sound is very low).
I have missed calls and messages since they are very low volume.
All sound volume settings are on Max.
I regret updating.
Sony, please fix it or find us a workaround asap until it's fixed, the phone is not very usable this way.

The same problem here. Resetting the device didn't work for longer than a few hours. The Xperia Chat Support told me to repair device via PC Companion which I just did. I keep you informed whether it helped. I am just extremely annoyed to set up the phone for the second time today -.-

I did two resets : First one when I upgraded to Kitkat, and another one through Sony PC Companion but 10 minutes ago has happened again ... So I did in this way to avoid this situazion or not doing a quickboot or a restart ... You should go into Settings- INFO Telephone - Diagnostics - Test - Speaker ... and have a test and It will be operative again ...
SONY U SHOULD FIX IN FEW DAYS Because we can't live in this way ;(

SONY, are u hearing me ? This bug is present also on SONY ULTRA, Z1, and Z1C, for the ONES who UPGRADED TO 4.4.2 . IT'S an annoying bug, that can make u lose some important calls ... it's happening everyday, but I don't know the frequency among one and one bug ...

Also I have the same problem after upgrading to kk z1 compact.
It 'a serious problem! a smartphone should be first and foremost a phone. what's the use if you can not hear when it rings?
