Im a vodafone pay monthly customer whos htc desire broke, i bought an Xperia S via amazon uk so is not locked to any network. Im still awaiting update also....
I spoke to a Sony Xperia chat advisor and they said there is no scheduled updates for pc companion....
Seems simfree phones will take forever to be updated. The flashtool thing dosent work for everyone, ive tried and failed and have done it properly.
Installed the drivers via flashtool drivers folder, downloaded europe generic .73 firmware and put the file in flashtool firmware folder, run flashtool and select new firmware, screen pops up asking me to unplug phone etc, i power off then hold back (volume) button and plug back in and it says flash aborted.
Flashtool recognises phone no problem, correct model etc. Ive also tried various usb ports all with same outcome.
