So I stalked the release of this tablet and was told there was going to be a late US release. I grabbed one off of e-bay and have been extraordinarily happy with it less a few issues.
Is anyone else unable to claim the free movies (Captain Phelps, and the other 5)
Anything coming from the xperia lounge is telling me "The voucher is currently not available, please try again later" is anyone else having the issue or are these benefits just region locked?
I don't have a warranty due to the fact that the US won't honor a warranty from overseas so can anyone tell me what I'll be losing from root.

Sorry if these things have already been asked, I've searched through the forums but may have missed it.

Running into the same issue- freebies have not been unlocked for our region yet, just wait and they should be available soon

No issue with "crunchy" sound but I haven't yet submerged my tablet, I also don't see a reason to do it willingly, I'm looking at it as more of a feature that is there in case of accident, not to play angry birds under water lol. Songy says that the content is region locked and that the freebies along with some features will only work in the country of origin. The only way I can think of to get around this would be to rout your network to the country of origin through a proxy server and hope for the best. It's going to take me a few weeks but I'm attempting to flash US systems on my tab, hardware is identical in all units so it should be possible, I'll post with updates if/when they happen.

try downloading the PC companion http://www.sonymobile.com/us/tools/pc-companion/ and perform the update. Im getting ready to root. 16 gb aint cutting it and i have a spare 64Gb card hanging out so here goes nothing. Has anyone managed to get xperia lounge to work in the states yet? There must be a way to get it working...
