Where the HELL is my 2.1 update???? what are SONY doing ?? bugger all??? not happy FURIOUS
i am afraid Sony will loose me if nothing happens soon, there are now better handsets that are supported by better switched on Companys, that will out do Sonys attempts at making the dream phone, unfortunately i would love to love the x10, but i have to admit there are better out there now......... Sony have failed once again.
Why dont you just be patient and wait. Its only half way through the week. Also if you are on T-mobile in the UK you will be waiting till the end of November. Whilst you are waiting why dont you read some threads on the forum about 2.1 to pass some time.
Easy cowboy, it's not the end of the world. It'll be here eventually.
haha lol thanks, just annoying, they said Sept, then Oct, now oct is nearly over, it will be NOV, and the fones old already!! nearly time to trade it in.. haha
You are seriously behind the times
They said the 2.1 update would be Q4 (october - december)
then said things were going better than expected so brought it forward to end of Q3 (july - september)
after some testing they discovered a fatal flaw and bug in the OS so switched back to Q4
STARTING the roll out by end of October and getting all kits finished by end of Q4
So some will start getting it within the next few days - others will take upto 8 weeks - but this is just a timeframe - they hope to have everyone rolled out by November but have allowed leeway for carrier versions to be installed, trialled and rolled out too
Thank god i'm FACTORY GENERIC
Where did you here that?? As T-mobile have stated a few times now via twitter that they are going to get this out asap due to the demand for the update, the forum post was made when there was still confussion about the gen release of the update to network providers. But at the same time things can change
Im also wanting to know where the hell theres so meany post with people bitching about not having 2.1 yet!!! SE have stated and been quoted to death and are sticking to it this time, the update will be before the END of OCT (theres still time yet) and then its all down to the network operators to get it out not them so if you have to wait will the end of nov take it up with your provider! A mod needs to sticky http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/204793-2-1-fw-approved.html as it has all the info and will help stop people posting bitching threads.
I read it on another forum about T-mobile should have it out by the latest end of November cause they are getting abused by the owners of the x10.
Dont worry too much cause it will be out when its ready.
Ah well, only 34 hours for them to do this - unless their development guys work weekends
The user who submitted that post DID say that if you're on T-Mobile UK you'll be waiting till the end of November
To be fair, if it was gonna be ready for end of October, it would be released by now, you wouldn't be getting Development Grade frimware being released now - 2 posts around, both builds are FW 497 and FW 504
497 Journo Android 2.1, Eclair Firmware for Xperia X10 Released to Journalists-Reviewed & Tested
What a big loss that would be for Sony
this kinda compounds what i said in a week long post
Its not the fact that Sony are releasing it slowly that causes the problems, its the fact people aren't sensible enough and too IMPATIENT to wait for it
Would understand if you were taking a 2 week holiday and Heathrow airport said they wouldn't get the flight out for a week - then yes, that warrants a COMPLAINT
but not waiting and complaining about getting NEW software that is only going to make the phone BETTER
that i don't understand
This was posted by them yesterday
another customer,,, which are dropping like flies,,, and in the business instock world has them pegged for a hostile take over from apple,,,,
Lol I know but T-mobile aren't the only provider with the x10 in its range O2 users will no doubt have to wait till nov 2011 for it as there known for taking there time
At the end of the day IT IS come out guys and it will be with you soon, look on the bright side SE could have delayed it again and said oh it will be out when its done alla 3d realms style lmao.
Some carriers are trying to get it out within 2-4 weeks after first release. I know o2 don't really give a shit, they're too bothered about iphones than SE's
Actually that was a made up story, the guy that started it amitted as much.... Sony soars, sinks, soars on Apple buyout rumor ? The Register
i stand corrected,, thanks cubz,,,, but sony is still losing lots of customers on all fronts, and no one can disagree they need to have a long look at there customer service
Nothing wrong with their customer service
everytime i have spoken to them, emailed them or had to call them myself they have been polite, courtious, efficient and helpful
the times they have need more time to analyze anything i have given them they have replied promptly and satisfactory
I must agree with MrWomble on that one...I have always had great satisfaction when contacting customer service.
lucky you guys,, i have had to deal with sony, on tvs, ps3, and now this,,, i have dealt with lie aftter lie,,,
Just for reference what lies have you dealt with - be interesting to know what you've experienced.
BRAVIA TV for 10 years
Blu Ray player for 3 years
Home Theatre Kit 2 years
PS3 for 1 year
when any needed service i was given accurate info, never lied to and always satisfactory (although i don't own all of them now)
Sony and Sony Ericsson are 2 different companys too
I to am a very patient guy but this is becoming ridiculous, To take almost a year to add there UI to 2.1 is just sad. It is very frustrating when you spend $600 on a phone that is supposed to be the best and you see people running around with phones like the Spica, Hero, Legend and so on and they all have 2.1 and I sit here thinking what is wrong with this picture. I hope that Sony releases it soon they have really damaged there reputation over this update. I may just have to move to the USA so I can buy a EVO or Droid X ...LOL
just curious guys...slate me if you like....i expect it now
i have read on here loads of times in different posts saying that T-mobile will release it at the end of November...but how do they know unless they have it in their hands now, and if they have it why dont sony release it??
If, say for example....and i will repeat that EXAMPLE, sony come out in the middle of next week saying that "opps we did it again" its not gonna be release until the end of november (same time as t mobile) then surly t mobile release will be delayed for a month...if not 2 months due to them putting their customisation on the FW, testing and xmas?
So with all the talk with what carrier will release it when...surly it depends on when sony actually give them the FW to modify as sony would not give any carrier the release unless there 100% happy with it??
I cant see any carrier going down the same boat as sony and putting a specific date on the release unless they know something the general publilc dont?
hey womble is SE a good company to work for???
Dibberly, you make a valid point, however, in my opinion, with the video SE themselves have put up on Youtube I'd say the FW is ready to go. Now an interesting question is how long does it take to customize the FW for the operator??
