It seems from reading other forums that some UK users (with XX prefix) are getting firmware version HJ4 dated 19/11/08. However those of us that updated last week are stuck with HJ3 and are unable to update again as the updater software says that the phone is not supported. IMO Samsung have made huge mess of this, and don't seems to know what they are doing.

Well, I tried to update my phone last week using PC Studio Software Updater and ended up having to take it into a CPW service centre to get them to reload the firmware back onto my phone. When I got my phone back it is still shows as the HH7 version and I am not about to update it until after the holdays.

I just did a quick check using the updater and the available update that it shows for my handset is HJ3. I dont know where the HJ4 update is coming from but its certainly not showing as an available one for my handset.

Access points that dissapear (like they do when youre in offline mode or out of coverage) in the Web application, and probably in other apps too, until you restart the phone.
Happened to me twice in 3 days.

Were they WiFi or network APNs?

Could it be the phone is getting "cleverer" at not displaying APNs it can't currently use, or are thry always available immediately after a reboot? (without anything else changing)

The network packet data access points dissapeared.
I know they are supposed to when youre out of coverage, but I had a good signal. The phone even showed the little packet data available symbol underneath the 3G logo.

Maybe i dropped out of signal and the phone just never put them back

Maybe... it does sound a bit bug-like though :(

The music player bugs from HH7 such as low speed with a large library and the most annoying one, where listening to the Recently Played and Most Played playlists will cause the music to stop after one or two songs until you start it again yourself.

So it sounds like this "update" hasn't updated anything. Has anyone out there noticed any sort of improvements at all except for the new version of Asphalt?

Quite a few times when Ive dropped out of signal my phone will lock on "Searching..." even once Im back in coverage, which as well as meaning I cant receive calls will drain the battery too.

Trying to change network setting to UMTS or GSM only then back doesnt fix it. If I swap operator selection to manual it will find my network but reports not allowed when I select it.

Thought it was a network/sim thing but never happened before this firmware or on another handset with this sim card.

Restarting the phone works though, until I lose signal a few more times.

No need for turning your phone off and on...Just go to setting and select When Needed then after 2-3 sec select When available....Uolaaaa....No turning off the phone!!! Same at mine!!!

I've finally got my 8510 back from Samsung after it was killed off by the upgrade process - flashed with HH7 software:-(

Before I risk killing it again, are there really any benefits to upgrading it (I normally upgrade everything but my last two attempts have killed a Nokia 6120 and this, so I'm getting a bit more cautious!)

I too have been holding off upgrading after my attempt ended up sending my phone back to CPW to get fixed as the samsung firmware update failed spectacularly.

CPW tried to put the latest firmware on my phone only to tell me they were also having problems with it so they reverted it back to the earlier version which my phone was supplied with.

Not heard of any real benefits to getting this update either. Was hoping Samsung would get their update process sorted out but it does not seem to be happening very quickly at all.

I got my phone yesterday and was trying to update the software last night. Took 4 attempts before it succeeded.

Ive not noticed anything different other than some apps disappearing.

I actually now find the phone has an annoying delay when moving menu to menu or when beginning a text message meaning it misses the first couple of letters.
