It's all O2
I have had several times got a Sony/Sony Ericsson/Ericsson with O2's version, and also other network providers, and as soon as you get rid of this, the phone works fine, may be a tweak or two, uninstall some items from the generic uk firmware for the phone.
I have also found that some times, if there is a update, just go to update the phone if you know a new version of firmware is out, as it appears that even if you have not had the notifiy me that there is a update, it never gets acknowledge on the phone, almost as if something has blocked this???
For a example, had a X10i, no notifications, but going to XDA-Developers and also SE web site (At the time) saying that there is a update, used the update service, went through the first few steps of checking with the servers for new versions, and suprise there is a update, even though no notification from the over air notification and the normal desktop PC Companion.
Also helps to have unlocked rootable phone, which is a problem I am having with my Xperia S, teach me to get the phone from O2.. Will resolve this one way or another
Is this so they can be slow in updating as well
This has a feel of the X10 saga, where o2 seem to be the last to release the 2.1 update. With a phone like the play, a completely unbranded phone would be a better choice, than one that has been fiddled with by the network, especially as SE are going to alow more freedom with the boot loader, which I'm sure o2 or the other mobile providers will not like.
