    I got the Walkman one but nothing for the camera. Any idea what the bug fixes for the camera are? I've heard rumours that with 5.02 they'll allow RAW on the Sony. That seems to appeal to a lot of people because they hate the logarithm.
    Gotta research that. Its about time they added RAW support...it's not like the camera wasn't capable of doing it.

    The only thing that annoys me on the Z3 is MMS doesn't work...this is why I don't like carrier phones, even the carrier unlocked ones. Give me a straight CV or the virgin unlocked from the OEM.

    No, you need to think this -

    You're in cold weather and all rugged up. It's still snowing but you just go home from work. The snow is in the driveway and the plough has been through already blocking your drive way. The snow is wet and heavy.

    You get your shovel out and start at where the plough has piled the snow about 2-3 feet at the end of your driveway. You can only do small shovel full because the snow weighs so much. By the time you're done clearing that part you're sweating from head to toe but you're freezing at the same time. You then need to clear the rest of the driveway because you have about 6" of wet heavy snow sitting there and if you don't clear it it will turn to ice when the temp drops. By the time you're done, if you don't take a break, you'll be out there for a good 1 to 2 hours. You'll be exhausted, sore back and ready for bed. It doesn't matter how fit you are.

    In the morning, you have to clear another 3-4" before going to work...

    Jup, that is the summary. But sahib, if you really love that snow and shoveling you should consider going to Canada for next winter going from house to house offering them to clean their drive way for money. You would probably have enough snow for the rest of your life and you will happily return to sunny California :)

    So I mentioned before how I'm surrounded by imbeciles here at work every day; here's a fine example:

    We've got this guy working here that's been telling me for the last few days that he's going to be getting a "Windows Phone" soon. Of course I encouraged him, as he knows I use Windows Phone and always talk about it and my 1520.

    Well, yesterday he came in on his off day (he and his wife :/) to show me his new "Windows Phone". He pulls it out of his pocket and I immediately recognize that it is definitely NOT a Windows Phone. "Umm, that's not a Windows Phone, that's an Android!" I explained. "Yes it is!" He argues back, with his wife chiming in along with him; "Yes it is! It's an HTC, and HTC is Windows Phones" o.O They continued insisting that this phone was a Windows Phone and went out to their car to get the box to "show me" (lol). His wife brings the box in and says "See! Windows Phone!", and points to the picture of the phone on the box, with the "square, window shaped... Uhmm "tiles"???

    I had to walk out of the room...

    Thanks Ed, I needed that laugh...

    No surprised there...Boost mobile = Android. Surprisingly enough HTC still has a solid foothold in the Boost lineup. I see a fair amount of these HTCs. And because Boost rides Sprint, that also helps.

    I mean, I understand not everyone knows the difference between different phones and different platforms.. and I'd never call someone an ***** for not knowing the difference, but I told them what is was... and what it wasn't, several times! Yet they continued to argue with me. Not to mention it's clearly printed right there on the box. And if they can't read, which evidently is a strong possibility, there's even a little green Android robot dude on the box as well! lol

    Headed to Japanese lesson. Today was an OK day...started out crappy but has gotten better. No complaints overall.

    Still annoyed that MMS doesn't work on the Z3. I may eventually change the color and get either a copper or purple model. We'll see.

    So the MMS not working is due to the carrier or the phone itself?

    Carrier ROM on the phone is the cause. That's also why WiFi tethering doesn't work.

    Typically with a true CV or a true unlocked OEM, you put your SIM in, and as long as it is data active, it automatically downloads the settings - with or without a prompt. I plugged in my SIM in the Z Ultra and the settings automatically downloaded. I plugged my SIM into the Z3 and I had to manually enter the settings for data and MMS - a hallmark trait of a carrier branded phone.
