Opening the emails with Sony X side by side with Jolla phone, and Jolla phone is noticeably quicker.

"waited over a year for no tablet and then the same again for potential refund? inspires confidence!"

I was able to install Play Store to Xperia with these instructions. I stopped the auto-update right after the installation and now have a 4.5.10 version.

Should I update to a newer one? 6.4.13? And how about Play Services? Maps says that the're too old, but Maps still works though...

As far as I know, version 7.3.25.K is the last one, that allows application updates in Sailfish. It works for me. Play services you can update from Jolla Android Store.

Very easy to obtain older versions of Play Store via Aptoide, although remember you still have to accept "Update" to install 7.3.25.K if you are on 4.5.10

Thanks! Play Services updated via Jolla Android Store.

How do I accept the update?

I used this code to prevent Play Store from updating:
Code:
touch /opt/alien/data/app/com.android.vending-1.apk
chattr +i /opt/alien/data/app/com.android.vending-1.apk

I can confirm that Opera VPN + Travelex card purchased in the USA works.

For others based in the US, did you flash Sailfish X on top of the USA-localized android firmware image, or on top of the generic image linked in the Linux installation guide thread?

And exactly why would you want to use the USA-localised Android firmware instead of what the community recommends?

I don't. But since US telecoms deploy a breathtaking patchwork of LTE bands specific to North America where the required band may differ from region to region even on the same provider, I am hoping not to do anything to break compatibility or degrade performance in accessing my provider's network.

P.S. Most of the community doesn't live in the US. Which is why I am asking for the experiences of our American community members if there are US-specific issues we need to watch out for

I am not good in Linux, but with
Code:
chattr -i /opt/alien/data/app/com.android.vending-1.apk
you again allow changes in com.android.vending-1.apk,
and you are able to remove or phone is able to update it.

Those who know better, can correct me. :-)
