    No you cannot update via Bluetooth, however so that we can provide you further assistance in getting this working, can you tell me if the handset powers back on when you connect it to the PC? The most common reason for failure at this point is when you connect it to the PC before holding the back button down causing the phone to power on which prevents the update for continuing.

    and this issue can be resolved by either re-installing the usb driver of the phone, will take a look if i can find the thread about this...happened a lot in the transition between 1.6 and 2.1

    One other thing to try as this has resolved this problem for a few others:

    1. Close PC Companion

    2. Install java from http://www.java.com/winoffline_installer

    3. Start PC Companion again and try to do the SW Update of the phone.

    Another thing to try is to reboot the PC into "Safe Mode" by hitting the F8 key whilst the PC starts up. Once you have got the PC on in this mode simply try to run the program again as this often resolves this sort of issue.

    Does the USB connect to the laptop/computer now? Can you connect it does does it still not detect?

    Does it charge off the computer/laptop?

    Try to Right Click on PC Companion and chose Run as Administrator and go through the steps to upgrade or repair your xperia.

    Actually...make sure you are logged in as Administrator on the computer. Hopefully that's not why the device didn't detect before.
