And just one more thing
I only have sony mobile phones and never bought another brand but if sony don't solve the mobile phones problem I'll have to buy a mobile from other brands.

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

I read that they've rolled out KK4.4.2 to xperia T2 with the move apps to SD option back. The thing is z1 and above are all on 4.4.4 already. I hope there would soon be an update or something to bring apps to sd to the z series otherwise screw sony. Samsung customers seem to be more satisfied and if sony would not listen to our complaints then we should switch to a company that respects its customers

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

How do you know if the apps are ib internal storage? Where do I see that. And what do you mean by rooting? How do I make sure that my phone was not rooted in the repair shop? I don't trust them that much..I actually feel bad buying my unit from them. I hope my unit is all ok and no cheats have been made.

It really is stupid of Sony not to listen to their customers on this. I won't be buying another Sony phone.

Re: Can't move apps to SD card!!!!

By default not,only media files can be moved to SD.This is Google's decision,they want to drop the use of SD cards in Android devices.If you root as adviced above,you will be able to do it.

Will the Z series be given a system update to enable moving apps to SD card?

I read the T2 got that feature back on android 4.4.2. It would be total bs if sony didn't provide the same feature to their top line Z series phones. So much for the usual "it's an android system restriction" crap.

Re: Will the Z series be given a system update to enable moving apps to SD card?

Hello unhappy customers,

 

I'd made a post on a thread to ask Sony if rooting (to allow me to move apps to the SD card)  would void my warranty. I asked two weeks ago but haven't heard a thing, no emails, no response, nothing. I made another post yesterday and guess what? Nothing.

 

Here is my post.

https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Android-development/Is-There-Any-Rooting-Method-Without-Voiding-My-U-...

 

 

I also made a post in this thread on P.12. Three guesses what I've heard...

...

...

...

If you'd guessed 'Nothing' then your an experienced Sony customer!

 

Sony, can you stop your customers from complaining and apparently your staff from leaving (like Rickard apparently had) and get back to us?? There's no reason for such a large company to be so terrible - maybe you're not? As previously asked, please clarify....

 

I've checked the fortune 500 global company index and Samsung are far higher than Sony. For 2013 Global Fortune (largest companies in the world)

Samsung is 14

My company (Allianz ) are ranked 31

Sony is ranked 94

Thats still incredibly high so how can you justify the terrible customer service?  I've wasted £300 but I still live in hope that the monies not been wasted.

 

I also live in hope that I will be a happy customer some time soon. (P.S this means I'd like to hear back* thanks).

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

There's no hope. I'll have to sell this phone. It was a big mistake to buy it over the S5 anyway. Go to **bleep** Sony
