Updating your software.
Updating your software.

It’s a good idea to update your phone’s software regularly. Updating your software gives you new features, keeps your phone running smoothly and can fix a lot of common problems. It should always be one of the first things you do if you’re having problems with your phone.

Before you can update your phone, make sure your battery is fully charged. You should also make sure that you have backed up your personal data, like contacts, that are stored on your phone.


Software updates need to be approved by mobile networks before your phone will allow you to update your software. If you're using a phone that you didn't get from us, an update may not be available at the same time as it would be for a phone that came from Three.


To update your software, you'll need the latest version of Sony PC Companion software. You can get this from Sony's website.


To update your software:

  1. Connect your phone to your computer using the USB cable and open Sony PC Companion

  2. When the Sony PC Companion recognises your phone, it should automatically check for an update. If it doesn't, click Start on Support Zone

  3. Click Start on the Phone Software Update screen

  4. If an update is available, click Update now and follow the onscreen instructions

The software on your phone will now have been updated.

If you've updated your software because you were having a problem with your device, has this fixed the problem?


Yeah, awesome.

Seems we made things right.

Thanks for the feedback.
