Unlocked Virgin Sony M4 Aqua no 4G option on three, giffgaff, O2

Hi

 

I have got a Sony M4 Aqua E2303

 

After discovering that Virgin did not support 4G I decided to move onto a different network.

 

Phone takes the sim, all works good, internet works.

 

The other day though I noticed that I never saw the 4G symbol on my phones connection.

 

So went to the help site of the phone.

 

 

http://support.three.co.uk/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBISAPI.dll/,/?New,Kb=Mobile,Ts=Mobile,T=Device,varset_pid=...

 

 

 

Went to turn on 4G and I found that it was not there.

 

The 4G(prefereed)/WCDMA/GSM does not feature.

 

Now I have been in contact direct to Sony through the other network, 

 

They want me to pay £40 in order to root the phone.

 

I have been advised by sony that since the phone was obtained from virgin, that they have flashed it with an image where the 4G option is disabled.

 

I was wondering how I can get 4G working on a different network provider with out having to pay £40 to sony.

 

cheers

try doing a google search for sony m4 aqua android development, go to the xda forum, have a look around there - you will get plenty of advice/direction to do what you want to do.

Hi.

Just wanted to say thank you for your input on my Sony Z5.

Out of interest how did you get in touch with Sony. I have been on live chat with them and they didn't mention an option to root the phone.
