Phone won't update to lolipop

My Z Ultra won't update to 5.0 lolipop OTA nor with the PC companion, it keeps saying I have the latested software installed.

It's 4.4.4 with build number 14.4.A.0.108 in the UK and is sim free on the three network.

In the UK networks have to approve the updates even on SIM free phones. You have 2 options

 

1. wait for the update to be approved and released 

 

or 

 

2. manually update your phone

Cheers, I never knew that, I hope it doesn't come with the networks bloatware, the Sony stuff is bad enough.

Updates are upto your country or network to authorise it for release however a trick as you call it would be to manually flash another countries firmware
