Somebody has already posted to say that you'll invalidate your warranty if you change the product code.

Other than that, it depends what your priorities are. Don't update if you want Blackberry connect (there doesn't appear to be any support for it). Update if you will make heavy use the internal GPS or any of the other fixes.

My signature is indeed updated and I'm going to use the wifi a lot, and the gps aswell but not so much. I also read that is was 20% faster so thats intresting aswell, its always a big risk upgrading your phone but I did it 3x times so far with other phones (N70, E61 twice) and that went smoothly

Cross fingers, I'm starting it almost now...

UPDATE:
Did the firmware upgrade and it went just fine except that it said that it was disconnected when 2min remaining and on the Nokia was displayed " Test Mode" Nokia but I did what the updater told me (to remove battery and start up again), I did and then clicked retry and then it went smoothly till update succesful.
So now I have the latest firmware :-)
Restored the backup now and it ok
have to update my signature ASAP ;-)

A-gps

To Steve and others,

Are you sure that firmware version 7.40 was the first firmware released to add A-GPS? I'm asking because I have firmvare version 07.38.0.2, and I get a fix using GPS in just a few seconds as well... No complaints here

Unlike my previous 6110 Navigator which took forever to lock on to the satellites...

7.38 wasn't mainstream - which region are you in? Yes, I guess it's possible that this had A-GPS, but most people only had the choice of 7.24 or 7.40.

I wonder when the next update will appear?

Warranty replacement

Hi Steve

I had my Vodafone E90 - code 552396 replaced by Nokia Care with a 'generic' E90 with Code 0548238.

I found the description of this code on another site which had a complete list. It was 'SWAP EMEA 1 - UK Mocca'.

Given that this is generic - unlocked - non carrier branded and UK .... I can't understand why I'm still not able to find a Firmware version later than 7.24.03.

Do you any ideas what is going on ?

Also Anovo claim that this device was manufactured on 4 December 2007. Is it possible to identify the build date ? I ask ... because it seems like it still has an earphone hiss and it also has the same screen I always had - not the 'hardened anti-reflective' one I had been told was on new devices.


Cheers

Paul.

Very strange. I'm also guessing that it was made much earlier than that. Best to take it up with the supplier etc. There's certainly no way a device that recent should have been 'built' with early firmware.

Exclamation Be careful!

I updated from 7.24.03 to 7.40.1.2 by changing my product code from 0553342
to 0545991.

Worked fine and everything seemed to be alot faster until I came to use the internal keypad. A number of the qwerty keys (q/a/z/w) were transposed and the number keys were all different characters (needed to hold shift-1 to get the number 1)

Having read this thread I have now updated succesfully using the product code 0533332 (my phone was a UK O2 [unlocked] mocha version)

Did have me worried for a while and looking for the number of my nearest NSC!

E90 firmware update

I have two E90's and both have been updated with the latest firmware and the result is that the battery life has plummeted from two to three days between charges to daily charges! Anybody else experienced this at all?

NSS won't scan

I'm trying to do the update and NSS won't scan...

It finds the phone, but when I click "Scan" under the actions menu it says "Scan for product... Error" in the status bar. When I click "Scan" again it just says "Scan for product..." and does nothing.

I just noticed... under "Device Info" the last entry is ->Products Dir('products').......Not Found. Any way to solve this?

Any ideas what's wrong? Is it possible to write the new code without scanning?

Cheers.

It's NSU, the latest one installs new connectivity drivers which dont work with NSS, you need to uninstall NSU and cable drivers from your machine and install an older version of NSU. But dont run it. Do the product code change with nss then run NSU, it'll update to the lastest one but your phone is already updated to the new product code. Update as normal. You can find older versions of nsu by searching on the internet.
