Re: Xperia xz Wi-Fi hotspot problem

It's a software issue.  Sony will have to put another update out to fix the issue.  As I've said before, the temporary solution is to install a different (older) firmware version.  version 41.2.A.7.35 works.  I used Flashtool (you can find this program at www.flashtool.net)  there are tutorials on XDA Developers website under the Xperia XZ section on how to use flashtool to flash a stock sony firmware.  Until they fix the issue in the software behind the hotspot malfunction it's the only real solution to stay with the latest version of Android, aside from unlocking your bootloader and installing customized software.

Same thing here, already tried factory reset and software fix and nothing.

I think I'll take it to service and ask for a refund.

Right now I wouldn't accept any of the new models they don't have the 24 pixel camera and are the same thing as the F8331, same looks same all... (but more expensive) Right now there are many other brands that do the same or more, maybe it's time to give it a try.

I always use Hotspot for my work and studies, this had been a huge problem, I even had to buy a smaller phone just to get to use the Hotspot.

I have used Sony for years but now I think I'll divorce the brand until they make some innovation.

I have also seen the phone's performance is not as soft and fast as it should be. Don't like it anymore.

Maybe only people who use iOS devices conected to the hotspot got this problem. Sony will never solve this issue.
