iPlayer app on 5800

Bought my 5800 at the Regents Street store on 23 January - love it.

However, when I used the iPlayer application on the device it reported a newer version was available and offer to update the application. I foolishly accepted and the original app was over written. The "updated" version took ages to load and then only had an ugly text interface. While I can get to the iPlayer page in the browser it does not fit the screen as the application did.

Be warned - do not update the version that came on the device. Any idea how I get the original version back?

I don't have it either.

I wonder nokia were selling a different version through the Nokia stores than there were via mail order.

Can anyone who bought the phone from the nokia store in person confirm what the installed firmware version (and whether an update is available) and what software is pre-installed.

Bought from the shop yesterday, had iPlayer in the applications.
It did say an update was available, and yes I did install it :(

Hmmm what are Nokia UK playing at here ?

Shafting customers who don't happen to live in or around London is not likely to go down well.

That's the same product code as mine - and I can't update the damn thing to V.11


How about you?

mine is 0575581 - i got it at the regent street store.

it had iplayer - i upgraded it too. seems ok though. but it doesn't let you download shows, like the N96 version. which is a major let down.

No firmware update for me either.

Interestingly someone here is saying that got a 0575581 that came with v11 firmware out of the box.

No idea. Unfortunately Nokia UK Customer Service won't be open till 9am Monday so I don't think there's any chance of finding out before then (unless one of the AAS people know which email accounts to send some questions to).

I tried ringing them twice last night. First attempt I was told I was in a queue of one to which I waited 20 minutes then got cut off. Second attempt I was told the tech people were available this time and I'd be straight in - I waited 5 minutes before hanging up.

I emailed them today so hope to get a reply on Monday, otherwise I'll ring them up after work.

iPlayer will be available from the BBC shortly. I guess these things just take a while to work out sometimes.
