Hi all

I have read online that the Xperia 1 ii will be available on Vodafone and via carphonewarehouse in the UK, but have seen nothing relating to preorders there?

Is it that there are no preorders via these outlets and o2 has exclusivity on the preorder bonus?

The better value will always be O2 anyway with the refresh trick, but just seems odd that the phone officially goes on sale on Thursday next week and only o2 have offered up preorder slots?

I'm with Vodafone as I get the 15% discount and can't find anything about this phone coming to Vodafone. Hope it available in August when it's time for me to upgrade

It's on the Vodafone UK website now.

Could someone with the Xperia 1 II from Vodafone UK please tell me Customization Version of the firmware that came with the phone? I ask because I want to get Vodafone VoLTE working on my O2-provided phone, but the only Vodafone firmware on XperiFirm right now is 1321-8394 which is described as "Vodafone LC Net Locked" and I'm a bit worried about the "Net Locked" bit and don't know what that means.

You can find your Customization Version by opening the service menu by dialling:

*#*#SERVICE#*#*

Then Service info -> Software info -> Customization Version

Thanks

I got the information off someone on Reddit. Phones bought directly from Vodafone in the UK ship with the 1321-8394 "Vodafone LC Net Locked" firmware. We suspect this firmware is locked to work only with a Vodafone SIM so don't recommend it. If in the UK, you're better off with the 1321-7192 "Customized UK" firmware, as on this firmware VoLTE and WiFi calling both work on Vodafone UK and the other UK networks too.

I have the UK customised firmware to move me away from O2 ROM,

I had the new update rolled out automatically this morning.

WiFi calling didn't seem to work initially but then some app auto ran and said something like 'Downloading IME data" I clicked it and let it complete and is said vodafone WiFi calling updated or some sort of similar message.

Seems to be working fine now, I have a VF business sim installed.

Has anyone else noticed that after the 58.0.A.3.88 update that Vodafone UK WiFi-Calling no longer works on the Customized UK firmware?

OK, just was in an area there with poor mobile signal and WiFi calling is working fine. Thing is the #*#*4636#*#* menu shows that Wifi Calling not provisioned, and there is no longer an option to turn it on or off in the network settings. However, when you need it WiFi calling is still working fine and IMS status then shows Voice over WiFi: Available.
