  • Topic: Request an update from Jolla of any work work underway to improve general mobile-data compatibility for the 10iii with mobile network operators.

  • Some details about the topic: Reading the forum on a regular basis i get the subjective sense that since the release of the 10iii support there has been a significant number of bug threads from new 10iii users reporting problems accessing mobile data from their mobile operator supplied sim. By ‘significant’ I mean more than I am used to seeing in recent years for other new hardware releases like the 10ii. What I would like is a comment from Jolla on whether they recognise a general compatibility problem that has resulted in a significant number of edge-cases where people have had problems with [their] mobile operator. And in addition, if there is a problem with more edge-case compatibility problems; how this is being addressed in upcoming releases like SFOS 4.5?

  • Approx. time needed: 5m

  • Substitute (optional): not available.

  • Topic: Future plans for SFOS hardware
  • Details: I am well aware that SFOS for the Xperia 10 III came available only fairly recently, and I am definitely not trying to whip the Jolla developers into a death march. However, numerous Xperia series devices (including the Xperia 10 IV) are currently available for bootloader unlocking at Sony Open Devices. Are there plans for ports, are hardware platforms other than Sony being considered? Can a brief summary and/or a coarse time scale be revealed?
  • Approx. time needed: 5 minutes

@ExTechOp: as we’re a bit close to the meeting, in case I can’t get a proper answer in time I may have to push your question back to the next meeting. I’ll do my best though.

Thank you for addressing the question. Apologies for not being present, these meetings tend to fall at the start of my working day. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your question @PeegeeTips. It’s always better if people asking questions are able to join, but in no way a requirement, so no need to apologise. I had exactly the same difficulty when I lived in the UK.
