Ive decided to get a bit more info on this whole Firmware thing with Nokia and so far here is what ive learned.
I got this info direct from a Nokia reseller who does Firmware up dates.
Here is what ive learned.
In Ireland it costs about 25 Euro to get a Firmware
Now in my view it should be free!!! Think what would happen if Microsoft decided t charge everytime they made an update on the OS simply to fix an issue??!! BIll Would own every country!!!
Soooooo i decided to check another place, and what do you know?? Its free!!! Here is why……
When you buy the Nokia N91 phone it comes under warrently, they have a way at the shop to check the phone also , you dont need to bring in your recept all they need is the phone serial number and they can check to se if it is not stolen or something like that. Once confirmed they have no prbs in doing the update which should only take 30 mins.
Nokia resellers get these updates from a Special Website, in "Data Packets"
Currently the latest version is Data Packet 4.0 MCU 1.02
Within this Data Packet there are 2 diffrent firmware versions
Now this i was surprised with , when i asked him why the tech said its dependent on the Product code of the phone. I should have asked him more on this as i wasnt really sure what He meant.
What are they then??
Are they the Latest Versions??
When i asked him this He was confident in saying YES, but He was still waitng on a Special cable in order to perform the update.
When is the next Version going to be released??
He had no idea, but generaly they do release new ones all the time and download them from the Website its self.
Id be interestedin having a look at this site but He was unwilling to give me the address ( fair enough).
Ok So there you have it , thats what ive dug up ,maybe your going to do this your self some time but if you learn something from this post DO NOT PAY for your update , you are entitled to it, heck you payed enough for it!!!
Hope this is usefull.
