Red face E71 Firmware Update

Greetings all.

Nokia dropped me a SMS today to tell me that there's a new firmware update for my E71.

I'm using an E71-1 on T-Mobile UK with v200.x.x firmware and I have to say... it's working great at the moment.

Looking up the v300.x.x firmware, there are plenty of people upset with the latest version of the software. Sure, most people would be happy, only those that complain go online... but I'm a little anxious as to updating the handset. It's working just fine at the moment...

I appreciate it's prudent to use the latest firmware, but should I take that step if it's working as it is?

I have the same question.
I received a letter from KPN. I can visit their store and they will install the new firmware. But why should I. all is working fine!
And why can't I do it by my self behind my computer?

Well I deliberated for a few days, then did the upgrade.

The results - no difference to functionality, performance or battery life, but I've gone from a reset once or twice a week to... No reset so far.
