Well its my fav female reader Lizz again , ( Maybe my only one?) with this question.
Hey there, Lizz again.
I'm still waiting for the price to drop just a bit before I finally get my very own N91 but I was curious about firmware. I will be buying an unlocked phone because I live in the U.S. and who knows when the N91 will be available here, if at all.
Do you know if I will still be able to update the firmware? You had an entry awhile back about having it done for free but I don't know that I would have access to this in the states. Is there a way to do this over the internet or am I just out of luck?
Thanks for the continued awesomeness of the blog, I check it everyday.
Well Lizz, Many thanks for writeing in again , its always nice to know that there are female readers out there, ( I wonder if i looked like Colin Farrell would that help bring the number up? I have the Irish accent!! 😉
As far as I understand it , and as per my post with regards Firmware updates, you will need to go in to a Nokia Shop/reseller, as long as the phone is not stolen , or a pirate version i see no issues with getting a update.
Currently its not possible to do Internet or over the air Firmware update , but i belive that an upcoming update to the Symbian OS v3 will enable this feature, but ive no idea when this will be released.
Its been a while since ive been to the US , so im not really in a place to comment , im guessing that the update will be free so long as the warrentiy is still intact.
One thing you can do is give them a call , and im sure they will be able to tell you exactly what the story is on this matter.
Perhaps some of the other US readers can leave a comment here and let us know what the details are as im sure there are plenty of people interested in this matter.
