KitKat update for Xperia Z in India

Hi, 

 

Its been over 2 months and there is no news about the KitKat update for the Sony Xperia Z phones in India. Everytime, I try to connect at the Sony customer care am told, this is related to the carrier and they have to give the updates. What I dont understand is why will the carriers give the OS update? that too in India, where the phones are not bought under any contract with the carriers.

 

The Sony website shows that the KitKat update is already rolled out and yet, none of the customers have got it. Is it not pure cheating ??

 

I expect someone to give a positive reply about when the KitKat update will be rolled out, now that Android L is also about to come by year end.

 

Regards,

YPG

Re: India - Xperia Z Kitkat Upgrade Roll Over Status

I can confirm that I have received Android version v4.4.2 (Kitkat) build number 10.5.A.0.230 over the air.  I updated to this version using Airtel 3G.  The total download was around 300 MB and it took around 20 minutes to update to latest version.  My mobile is Xperia ZL  (C6502) and I live in Mumbai.
