Re: Wireless data transfer problem after the marshmallow update

@Mistabeak

I'm thinking of exactly the same thing. I like how Sony feels and what Sony has to offer at the time of purchase, but everytime when there is an upgrade, Sony can't get it right and remove many of the needed and usable features they provided in the beginning. I had other brand phones before and their software upgrade always bring on new features on top of what they have. But with Sony, every upgrade I'm missing something. I don't know. I felt they just can't get their acts together. They have a good phone, but their software development team kill it. no wonder they are not doing so well in the Phone sector.

PC connectivity via Wi-Fi disappeared after update to 6.0.1

As in the title, the option to connect my Z3c to the PC via wi-fi disappeared from the menu after I updated to 6.0.1 OTA (build 23.5.A.0.570) today.

I've tried to pair them again using the PC Companion "How to connect" but it says that the software isn't able to connect to PC Companion trough wi-fi.

Here's a screenshot of the message (in Italian).

Please, reintegrate the function soon. Thank you.

Oh there was already a topic about it. So the function won't be implemented again?

I guess I can say goodbye to water resistance of the usb cover if I have to open it every time I have to move a file to the phone. This is so bad, you should write the downgrade notes instead of the new (?) feature.

I don't blame Sony for this, but I wasted several hours trying to fix it because PC Companion led me to believe that I just needed to connect the USB cable, which didn't work either. If PC Companion notified me that this feature was removed up front instead of wasting my time, I would have just installed AirDroid directly.

Re: Wireless data transfer problem after the marshmallow update

Yeah, both things are the worst. If I would have known those features were gonna be removed, I would not have upgraded to MM.

Re: Wireless data transfer problem after the marshmallow update

This makes me really furious since I use this feature on a nearly daily basis. I bought Sony(-Ericsson) cellphones for more than 10 years now. But now I'm really finished with Sony!!

Android 6 and WiFi sync

Excellent. Updated on Anroid 6. Where is the connection to the computer via WiFi? I now have to buy a new cover for usb port? Sync music and photos with a computer is used almost every day. Using usb cord quickly kill watertight and dustproof, too.

 

Sony, please think about it.

Please return the magic necessary connection with a computer wirelessly. I really hope for your help.

Re: Android 6 and WiFi sync

Just found out today that Wireless PC connection is gone.

 

Z2 here. Wish I didn't upgrade to Android 6.

 

Can't believe what Sony Mobile is doing. Unless this is fixed soon, I'm done with Sony Xperia phones.

Re: Wireless data transfer problem after the marshmallow update

But for people who are using Lollipop?
Please bring the feature back, at least for users with older versions of Android.
