New firmware out already?

I called the Nokia center here in Indonesia and they said there is a newer firmware, 3.025.

I, myself, haven't upgraded since they want me to pay for $20 for the upgrade.


Is it true since I call the other place and they still have the 2.50 version.

Yes, there should be a new FW very soon. (maybe next week) I doubt that its out already. But could be that that version is just for APAC.

ok they said they already got it today and also I am able to upgrade it as long as I pay $20.


Is it a normal price to upgrade a firmware?



that's kinda expensive for me...


as far as what it fixes, I don't know since the guy didn't say anything to me. he just said he just got it this morning and it's ready by noon. that's all.

maybe I'll call them later on tomorrow and ask what the new version does.

New firmware? That is nice to know. I hope Nokia Care here has it.

My 3650 is with Nokia Care because it did not start normally. The problem started after I installed the trial version of Wildskinz :( and the Nokia Video Recorder. I thought 7650 applications will also work with 3650. I usually send e-mail to developers to ask on whether the 7650 sotwares they have is compatible with 3650 but I missed to write/ask wildpalm :(

I better call Nokia Care to ask about this latest version

Thank you for the firmware info stingbandel

You have to be careful with Wildskins - I bet you uninstalled it without 'deacvitating' it first - then when you re-boot your phone it gives errors on startup and when you enter menus?? Yes?

Thats cause it's still looking for wildskins which is now uninstalled - the trick is to re-install wildskins - activate it - deactivate it, reboot and make sure it's definatly deactivated. Then uninstall it and you should be back in business.

Thou it's too late for you as you have already given it to NCS but a warning to others

Best

Will

The FW upgrade should be free if you have warranty left
They might charge for the work though...

the problem is I didn't buy the phone in Indonesia so they claim the warranty doesn't cover to overseas.




that's why I have to pay $20 for the upgrade.

Have you checked the last page of the manual?? (the warranty section)
In europe it covers many countries outside of EU too.

My friend has all the tools to upgrade the firmware.

As a matter of fact, he just upgraded mine from 1.34 to 2.41 today.


If you could get the latest one from your friend, then I can ask my friend to upgrade it for me.



thanks
