Re: Wifi doesn't connect while phone is in sleep

Hi guys!

 

Hope you guys will release a patch or something for this problem soon! I would really appreciate it if the issue was resolved. At home I depend on my phone staying connected to the wifi at all times since the only data coverage i get is a weak edge signal and thus renders my 600€ device virtually useless, as its primary function is not fulfilled (i.e. communication). It gets annoying at times. Please let us turn the background scanning on or off soon! Pleeease!

 

Thanks for your time and keep up the good work (as the rest of the device and it's functionalities are satisfactory so far)! Winking Face

*edit* forgot to say i'm on a z5 compact on an orange plan in france, if it helps Slightly smiling Face

Re: Wifi doesn't connect while phone is in sleep

Any news on this yet? It costs me money for data over LTE when I come home and forget to go to a home screen then receive several whatsapps with attached images. There should be an option. All my previous Android phones connected automatically. Its was especially useful when roaming since I have data switched off and when I arrive at my business address all my whatsapps come in as soon as I enter the WiFi zone of my overseas home. Wit the Z5 if I forget to go to a home screen the messages can be delayed for hours.

I'm downloading 6.0 as I type and will update on this issue after.  Whoever at Sony keeps putting the solution as a battery saving feature, please stop as that answer is a load of rubbish.  Mobile data uses way more power than wifi and irelevant of that we just want the option to set it as desired.

Unfortunately, the issue remains.  Please can you pass our requests onto your development team Sony?
