Android 2.3.4 on Xperia PLAY is extremely broken. Its connectivity to google's servers has been severed so you only get notifications when you either request manually or twice a day. Push notifications are broken. Verizon released the update without testing it and say they have been working on a fix, but its been over a month and we have had no word from them at all.
Well this is rediculas. They think im gonna stay withhthem for 2years and the services dont work right.. I dont think so
Sent from my Verizon Wireless Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY.
did you do a factory reset after the software update?
do you blame your cable company when you tv breaks? i dont get you people
No i havent tried a factory reset. As far as your comment about blaming the cable company when my tv breaks? My phone is not broken its the service,the phone far as i can tell works fine but it just seems like the service and everything is really slow. How do i do a factory reset? Iv only had this phone over a week now,seemed to work great now my emails and messages are just taking forever to come in.. How do i do the update and the factory reset?
How about you do a bit of research before you dismiss the guys claim.
1. You don't need to do a factory reset every time you do a system update, thats ridiculous.
2. He has had the phone for a WEEK, it probably even had 2.3.4 on it when he got it.
3. VERIZON is the one who puts out the system updates. Android system updates are done by the carrier so they can add their bloatware and other stuff. This is a known issue with the Verizon version of 2.3.4, the Xperia Play unlocked or other carriers works fine with it. Theres about 15 posts below his about it.
I don't get you people who post snide remarks without knowing what they are talking about.
Thank you to the community members for assisting each other! I can understand the inconvenience surrounding the notifications not being pushed to the device. Are you having trouble with only e-mail notifications? Have you tried to uninstall the e-mail and add back? Go into Settings > Accounts & Sync > Make sure the e-mail sync is on (green revolving arrow). To check your software: Applications > Settings > About phone > Build number. Click on this link for additional information regarding the software: http://bit.ly/rNi1Mw . Does your device freeze during a particular task? Does a soft reset (removing battery) ever fix it? Looking forward to your reply.

The notification push issue is with all Google services. Also the update that you posted the link to is the cause of this issue. This has been confirmed by many users of this device, and mentioned in other posts here.

I use hotmail,and i do receive hotmail updates when i get emails but it takes forever for them to come through.Iv tried to click add account to add hotmail but it will not let me. Also you said go to about phone in my settings also told me to go click on the build number option,iv clicked on it and it does nothing at all.it jst says a certain set of #s under neith it..Like i said my phone just sometimes takes forever to load facebook and takes a long time tp update me on my hotmail emails that come in..
