My Xperia is driving me nuts. For ages I used the hotspot, no problems. Then all of the sudden the hotspot connection between phone - mac or phone - TV would randomly but all the time disconnect. Sometimes it took 10 seconds, sometimes 10 minutes. Sometimes turning the hotspot off then back on would fix it, or turning WiFi on the connected device off and back on. Sometimes it would say it couldn't connect to the xz at all. After a full reset of the phone it worked again (hadn't done a software update to cause the issue). Now my new xz is doing the exact same thing. Sometimes the TV stays connected, sometimes it doesn't, or if connected and I connect the mac, they both drop out the mac doesn't stay connected at all. At random but frequent intervals it disconnects, however according to the connected device it's still connected, just no internet access. I've looked at setting and passwords, restarted the phone, the device, everything. Nothing works. Certainly no more Sony's for me

So i decided to do the software update because my sony xperia xz kept having issues with the hotspot (disconnecting all the time). So, with 100% battery i did the update this morning. Now it doesn't work any more. The swipe lock shows up, i swipe to start, the android, sony, xperia and telstra logo show up, thenback to the swipe lock. tried the 10 second restart, tried the 120 second restart, tried the sony companion which didn't work. So my software update essentially killed the phone unless someone has any other ideas. very very unhappy.
