The article states that version 3.03 is available for all S60 5th edition devices, but unfortunately it is still not available for the 5530 XpressMusic (maybe because it doesn't have builtin GPS?)

Great! Just a couple of days *after* I lost my patience and decided to pay for it...

Congratulations though, to all the rest of you! :-)

Nothing in software update for me...

Well, there's a surprise, Software Update doesn't show anything other than Maps 3.1 for my unlocked, SIM-free, fully paid up N86 bought from the Nokia flagship store in London...

Then again, I'm still waiting for firmware 21 to show up on my phone too so I don't know why I'm surprised!

Nokia, any chance of updating all your phones not just a few randomly-chosen product codes!?

I'm having the same problems as TheProdigalFool above. So much for buying direct from Nokia. I feel as though my 400 odd pounds could have been spent better, the software on this phone has been TERRIBLE since I first got it. If it's not the software acting up, it's hardware and build problems (I write this from a N85 with dust under the camera lens that ruins photos, a non functioning navi wheel and a crack next to the menu buttons that causes the entire front plate to lift up). And this is from someone who takes care of his phones!! Company loyalty = fast fading.

You can always change your phone's product code to a generic one. Just search the website how.
I bought mine in the nokia store and it turned out to have a specfic UK code. I changed it to a euro one and now when there is an update I get it 1st rather than wait a few months.

Thanks for the tip davesmith. Shame we have to go to such measures.

Yeah, annoys me when I buy direct from nokia and get updates after the custom firmwares;
How can I tell what my firmware version is (i.e. I dont mean version number, but what that version number corresponds to);

Also, I am planning on a trip this weekend, if I put the e71 version on and take it off again will that cause much hassle?
