siri, 27 Aug 2014i'm planning to buy sony xperia e1..after reading all reviws i'm worried to buy this phone...... moreJust plug the phone into your computer.. you should get an update for KitKat... I didn't even know KitKat was available for this phone.
i use this phone about 1 month, amazing phone.. beautiful design... great perform esspecially when i was upgrade it to kitkat... great.... never find a problm anymore..love this,...
Ok so it's been almost 2 months since I got my E1 and I'm pretty happy with it. JB had this random reboots and it was annoying. Now KK really fixes the issue and reboots are gone (99% gone). Performance is smooth and for the price its not half bad.
Mine came with bloatware from my carrier but thanks to xperiablog and XDA I was able to install a debranded UK version of KK update and its great.
I might stick with this phone for a while, until the next Moto E (Moto E+1 ??) comes out (if the price is right).
ashwini , 20 Aug 2014Hello I have same problem the swipe and none option in security greyed out what to do Nothing to do but wait until a patch gets released, its a bug from Sony. Some guy in a forum told me there is a new patch rolling out on "Sony PC Companion" app that fixes this issue but I'm not sure about that.

Disable Mobile Data but you wont get any update from any app (no whatsapp, no facebook, etc) unless you are connected to a WiFi AP (with internet access).
If you can't afford to be not connected on the street then get a data plan from your phone carrier and enable Mobile Data.
PD: You can also install AutoSync from play store, it allows you to auto-disable sync when not connected to WiFi.
siri, 27 Aug 2014i'm planning to buy sony xperia e1..after reading all reviws i'm worried to buy this phone...... moreYou can search on XDA forums, there is a thread about this phone and how to upgrade it. You'll need a couple of tools and be caution when doing it.
1) Follow this link to learn how to get your own 4.4.2 update for your device. D2005 is the only with 4.4.2 update so far but its compatible with D2004.
2) Follow this other guide to flash the FTF update created to your Xperia E1. The guide uses the Z2 as example but it can be used with E1.

Hi. Have just installed this update on my Mum’s phone. But the update automatically deleted the Facebook app & when we try to reinstall the FB app from Google Play, the phone responds with message of “incompatible application”.
Is anyone else having this issue ?
HELP ME PLZZZZZZZ!
zanele, 20 Aug 2014yooooooooooo, i dont want this flippin fone anymore, wana cancel...hai guys i wonder do you ge... moreI had that same problem when I first got the phone.. I loaded airtime, and it just chewed airtime without doing anything on the phone.. my sisters fiancee told me to load a data bundle on the phone instead of airtime, and yes, a data bundle works much better. But you can load airtime on the phone with the data bundle, and the airtime won't get used.. what would also help is, if you go to 'Settings', select 'Data usage', and switch off the 'Mobile data' - although if you do that, you won't get any Facebook updates.

Got the new Kit Kat, it deleted my FB APP(still cannot instal it - THE CHAT IS OF LIMITS BY CHOICE) but the phone purrs like a kitten. No more restarts, blocks and stuff. Also battery life improved.
Personally, satisfied and will be even more when i finally instal FB.
