Re: Accelerometer stops working

I bought this phone in Hong Kong and I am traveling a lot ... the update release depends from where am I ? ...or just from when it will be released in Hong Kong? 

(Still having the issue with build .282, very annoyed and thinking to buy a new telephone).

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Excellent! \Ü/

 

An update is rolling out!  Hopefully my carrier won't hold this of for too long.

 

Kudos to the community for the suggestions and temporary workaround.

Thanks to Sony for looking after and releasing a fix.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I have the same issue, have to restart every time I want to watch pictures, movies. Also apps that uses activtion as shaking the phone for different functions does not work, have had this issue for more than 2 month now and no update or fix from Sony yet?
Can someone at Sony support please send me an update or a new phone to fix this extremely annoying issue.
I do not accept to buy a top of the line phone model that does not work for more than a month, and where the manufacturere cannot provide a solution either.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Same thing with Telia in Sweden. No idea that there is an issue or even that a patch should be available. Getting real tired of this!

Also a friend has the same phone and she didn't buy it through here operator. How is she suppose to get the firmware?

Getting real tired of this and has seriously considered going back to my Xperia z2 which is a solid phone without issues
