yep I have 10.4.1.B.0.569 on the THREE network in the UK...and its a mess...my worked brilliantly for 12 months now its terrible...battery drain and no wifi hotspot....appalling.This has made me seriously consider ditching sony....the support on here form the devleopers and mods has been scandalous. I am looking at threads going back to version 10.4.1.B.0.101 in DECEMBER that still have not been fixed !!!!

Exact same situation here! I just spent days on the phone to Three giving them a piece of my mind! Oops!
Can't believe there's no solution to this, this thread is 13 pages long!
I have been so happy with my Xperia Z until now.

Celtic, if you have unlimited data I found a quick fix for Hotspot. Shove your phone on charge and play a really long video on youtube, I've been using netflix but I'm sure youtube would also work, just turn off the volume and it'll keep your hotspot going. Not the best solution but it works until Sony sort themselves out.

I updated to Android 4.3 on February 8th because my phone wouldn't stop jamming notifications down my throat to do so. Since then my WiFi and Data do not work when Bluetooth is enabled. This means that my SmartWatch 2 and my Mono Bluetooth Headset for calls are both now completely useless. This is with build number 10.4.B.0.569.
I have contacted Sony Support numerous times but all they can manage to say is to wait and hopefully a solution will come. I have been waiting for over 2 weeks now and still no forward progress. I have $275 of Sony Technology that I am unable to use and doesn't look like I will be able to use any time soon.
There have been some reports that build 10.4.1.B.0.101 helps with this issue so hopefully I am able to update to that soon but this is ridiculous that 1. Sony didn't test compatibility with their own devices before rolling out the update, 2. The amount of time they are taking to fix an issue that has affected so many Sony users everywhere, and 3. That they appear to have no action plan and the only thing they can tell their paying customers is to wait around for a solution to fall out of the sky.

Seems to be related on the use of the Smart Bluetooth introduce in the 4.3 Android. I have the same issue as you all with a Garmin Vivofit using the same BT protocole as the sony Smart Watch. As soon as I use the app Garmin using the BT smart, I I loose the Wifi. I have to force stop the App to get back on Wifi.

Just stumbled accross this forum as I've been struggling to connect my xperia Z phone to my xperia Tablet Z for about a month now. Pretty much hacked off with Sony now, in the last year I've purchased a Sony L series all in one pc, 2 Sony phones, a Sony NS510 network speaker, a Sony 40' smart TV and a Sony tablet. Every single one of these items has had problems communicating with each other, the L series all in one PC was so difficult to update through Sony's update ftp site that I ebayed it a couple of months after purchase. Sony support is utterly useless. My xperia Z rarely speaks to my Sony NS510 wireless speaker, it's having a good day today but only after a full reset this morning. Pretty much decided that it's time to ebay the phone and tablet and get something that works. Trying my best not to be an Apple sheep so maybe it's time to go back home to Nokia with a Lumia phone and Tablet. Didn't have any problems with my old E90 - might be time to resurect it from the loft!!!
For the love of God Sony - this is just appalling, pull your socks up - surely you have enough resources to make a better job of it than this!!!
