Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

[ Edited ]

"

They told me that Sony has agreed to supply headphones with the Z1 because of the complaints of those who purchased the phone.

And as soon as Sony ships them to O2, they will send a text and email and ship them out to us."

 

they told me the same! )))) but they couldn't explain though - why in their online shop is nothing about not getting the headphones with the mobile phone! )) I think this info is very important and they should add it before someone is buying the phone!!! ))) But they are not going to change or add this info because this is kinda bad for business )). But when you bought the phone (they think) not everyone is going to call them and beg to send the headphones! ))))))))) greedy O2! ))

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

Just got off the phone with O2 about the missing headphones

 

They said they haven't got any news on when they will be available

Apparently it may take from a couple of days to a few weeks for Sony to send them out.

 

I was offered a compatible pair of headphones, but I think I will wait till Sony sends out the original set

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

I have just come across this thread and i also do not have any headphones with my phone I pre-ordered it as i am a Sony fan of many years and i am impressed with the phone. I have tried to call O2 but I can not get through and i find the online chat advisors do not always give the correct information. I have even tried Sonys website and it seems everything for the Z1 is out of stock I have managed to purchase the magnetic charging dock and that is wonderful. I think i will fire an e-mail to Sony mobile directly as O2 seem to be dragging their heels. If anyone has any luck please let me know.

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

Got an email from Sony regarding the missing headphones

This is what they sent me

 

"Thank you for contacting the Sony Xperia support centre.

Im sorry for any issues regarding not receiving headphones for your Sony Xperia Z1 from O2. We can confirm any headsets provided are down to the decision of the network/retailer who sell them. 

Any stock should be handled by the retailer directly, any details of stock provided for the retailer by Sony wouldnt be information we have access to. 

 

I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. If you need any further help please let me know."

 

So if I am reading this right it seem O2 was the reason the Xperia Z1 didn't come with the headphones and not Sony

You're reading correctly, but it doesn't mean it's true.

 

Neither O2 or Sony are going to admit that the lack of headphones was their decision, as that would open them up to complaints. They're always going to try and shift the blame to one another.

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

As long as I get a headset I don't really care who's at fault

 

But both Sony and O2 are saying different things

 

And if you you speak to O2 on "Live Chat" they tell you that the Xeperia Z1 doesn't come with headphones and you have to buy them.

 

O2 should sort this out

 

I never heard of a mobile being sold without it's headphones

Even a £20 handset includes them

 

I will wait till friday to call O2 again and see what's going on

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

What you are being told on live chat is correct, I have seen the memo myself. The Xperia Z1 does not come with earphones. From what I've heard depending on who you speak to O2 have been kind enough to send earphones or offer a credit to customers who have complained - but make no mistake, they are not obligated to do this so it is a gesture of goodwill.

Many phones do not come with earphones now, unfortunately in this case on our network at least the Z1 is one of them.
I work for O2 but my comments and opinions posted here are solely my own and do not reflect those of Telefonica.

Re: Xperia Z1 headphones

Called O2 again today

 

They gave me a number to call to order the earphones

 

You have to give them your Info (Name, Address and Date of Purchase) and IMEI number.

 

The number is: 0800 038 5341

 

Or email: earphone@sony-promotions.com

 

They told me it might take up to 3 weeks for the earphones to arrive
