Noticed that Nokia are promoting the new FW v51 on their E72 pages, but have tried OTA and by connecting to NSU, and cannot get it either way. I'm currently in v31 which tells me I'm on the most recent.
Not that I'm too upset, phone seems to be working ok, just a slight glitch with Ovi Maps. Have to re-start the phone to get Maps to work properly :-(
Once it re-boots, then it works fine.

You probably have a phone which product code belongs to some specific mobile operator. For that kind a phones, fw usually comes few weeks later.

Thanks for the reply but what is puzzling me is that I bought the phone in the UK sim free - handset only - so it was unlocked. Generally, these are the handsets that get the FW updates quicker than other - as you say network dependant - handsets.
I did read though on Nokia discussion forums, that the E72 Silver / Grey did have v51 available, but not checked yet. Also read that v51 does come with its own set of minor bugs, so not sure yet whether I actually want to update or not!
any links to what the bugs are?

Well, I did an OTA update last night, the temptation was too great, as I always want the phone running on the latest FW. So far, everything seems to be fine, haven't encountered any problems at all - but then, I haven't done a phone restore from the memory card.
When I had the N97, and I did a FW upgrade, I always did a back up first, then restored from memory card after the FW update. THe one time I didn't do this, the phone worked far better, quicker and more responsively, so recently, all I back up is my contacts on the sim card, do the FW update, do a hard re-set, then I'm good to go.
THe problems with the E72 v51 are listed on Nokia Discussions Forum, there were two threads, see below:
