Can anyone tell me how to disable Xperia Throw? Reasons are in the title. The problem is, when I connect my headphones they automatically link to Throw which makes audio unlistenable due to stuttering).I force stop it to resolve lag + battery drain but I'm unable to use my headphones because it always turns on. How can I make my headphones work via normal bluetooth? Any help would be most appreciated.

You can delete/disable it, it's located in priv-app/SomcPlayAnywhere.apk

Thanks, your a life saver. While we're at it, do you know what could be the reason for my bluetooth mouse making internet drop from 30mbps to 3 mbps? I'm pretty sure it's a software issue because it doesn't affect internet speed on my friends phone. Thanks.

Surprisingly, when my headphones are connected, speed goes up to 9mbps.

Is it part of some sony package? I wonder if any update will be available soon. I've just updated Walkman, throw didn't reappear.

Wlan?
Bluetooth and Wlan use the same frequency, if the BT mouse is a crappy product that causes a lot of interference wlan could drop packages.
