Also, v20, negates having to use the SYM button as a long key press brings up symbols.

Not helping am I?
Sorry, I inadvertently confused you. I mean to say that when texting on the N97, I used to the SYM button all the time by mistake, which would slow me down as I would always have to exit the SYM menu.

But yes, adding insult to injury makes me feel rather sorry for myself, but at least the N95 is out of the draw and seeing daylight. I think it's so happy at being let out again, that it's on it's best behaviour.

Whereas the N97 was just poncing around, lording it up, thinking it was the Big I Am.... ooh look at me I'm Nokia new flagship smartphone.....all talk and no trousers. Hummph. Soon sorted that out. Take that you dastardley N97 - be shunned to darkened draw over yonder, ye shalt not face sunlight again til ye have repented, shown the error of your ways and delivered to us ( well, me actually ) your v20. Now, be gone!

I'll get me coat.

< holds breath whilst presses Submit - will it be moderated? The only thing is, if it does get moderated, you guys will have no idea ! >

Edited to add: yay, it went through, no moderation..... The Man From Del Monte - He Says Yes!

Think you got the last posting through on the sympathy vote.

Like you, I keep my N95 nearby... just in case.

Before I take the plunge and debrand my vodafone branded N97, after debranding and installing V.20, will I still have the settings to allow me to use the phone with vfone or will I need to install the settings myself.

i had a look to see if i could upgrade to v20, its not available for unbranded uk white variant, but is available for the unbranded uk black!

is there any logic to this? has this happened before? i thought the only difference between the two was cosmetic, i don't understand why it would be released for black but not white!

btw my code is 0587240

Angry

It happened with V11, my rage has not yet subsided from that oversight!

Phone hung over night last night, so my alarm didn't go off, no V20 to fix it, way to go Nokia!

[UPDATE] I've decided to take a page out of angiepea's book and just do a hard reset but not restore the settings from a backup but, instead, set everything up manually. I think I'm doing good though, cos I wiped everything and then hard reset, and I was soon shown the Language menu.... a huuuuuge list of practically every single country in the world. I flicked my thumb on the screen and *WOOSH* it shot all the way down to the bottom smoothly! Flicked again, and it shot half way up quickly and smoothly! Before, it lagged with lists with only 5-6 items in it. Hopefully it'll keep this up when I get everything on there...[/quote]


Great !! i'm really glad it worked for you .... I noticed a massive difference when Ian convinced me to do the same

I have the code ending 162 or whatever it is - the same as everyone else on here saying they can't get it. Could it be to do with the time that I checked for it online?

Can't believe I was lucky enough to pick it up - only went into software updater as I was waiting for an album to download and had nothing else to do!!

TBH I was expecting a little more than what it actually is but what can you do.

It's still available for UK CV black, product code 0570817, according to the Nokia software update checker:-

http://europe.nokia.com/get-support-...e/can-i-update

Took the attached screenshot at 12.30pm today.

As there has only been a week this time between the Continent unbranded and the UK unbranded then hopefully the operator branded firmware for v20 won't be too long... providing they get their fingers out at the operators end. It's in their own best interests to do so I would have thought.

Yes, there are 2 UK CV (Country Variant) codes,

One for black handsets, 0585162: N97 UK CV B (which v20 has been released for) and one for white handsets, 0587240: N97 UK CV W, yours according to the code. Which, for some strange reason has not had the v20 release.

You can use the Nokia software updater checker here:-

A clear case of colour prejudice I would have thought.

Just to add insult to injury, the Nokia update checker site that I posted earlier, appears to have crashed.

Probably under the weight of people desperate to check if their product code has v20 released yet.
