    I just checked for my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc for Android update, but Sony Ericsson PC Companion 2.0 says “Your phone is up to date”

    I’m currently on Android 2.3.4.

  4. I am getting 4.0.3 upgrade notification from couple of weeks for my Neo V via PC companion software but still no upgrade notification for 4.0.4. I am not upgrading my phone to 4.0.3 due to negative reviews by users who have already upgraded. Waiting for 4.0.4 🙂

    HI…..I have an Arc here in India.
    There is a reminder suggesting for an update (4.1.B.0.431) every time I connect the phone to PC . 
    Is the new ICS worth updating??

    Still waiting for O2 to release the update for Xperia S – I even asked in my local O2 shop and they had no idea when it would happen.
