Vodafone version wont let u unlock bootloader and root, so my advice would be buy unbranded device

Its not about warranty, its about development. You wont be able to unlock bootloader and flash custom roms, if you dont care, then go ahead, there are no other differences, since you can flash generic firmware and get rid of vodafone stuff if you want to.

Christ.. Please pay attention, i wont repeat again. You CANT unlock bootloader, and you CANT flash custom made roms, as in the ones you can find in development section. What you can do, is flash generic sony firmware, basically same vodafone rom just without all vodafone apps and branding.

Hi there
I am very sorry i have bad english so It's a bit difficult for me.
Also my knowledge of Android is small.
i have just 2 more questions:
1. the bootloader will be locked forever or maybe in future I can open it?
2. Is the phone supports Hebrew language? Do I need to do something to turn the Hebrew language?

Thank you very much!!
