As for slowing down the hit on their servers. V11 has been out now for almost two weeks, most people outside the UK who want to upgrade will have done so already AND in the UK the phone is only offically available from Nokia online and direct from a couple of nokia shops.

If the servers can't handle the load that will generate they have a serious problem.
O2 contract

What you're talking about here is the phone's PRODUCT CODE (or SPN to use phone speak) - this is the 7 digit code (such as 0575581) which indicates which region (country) and network your phone was originally configured for.

It is *THIS* code that Nokia's Software Update program reads to decide whether there is an update available for your phone. It is also through this method that Nokia can make different firmwares available for different networks and countries.

It's written on the back of your phone under the battery.

I think O2 will give you a free PAYG chip if you speak to them nicely

but I really don't think this effects the update

No, not at all. As said before, the update is dependent on the code hardwired into your phone.

Maybe you can take card out and copy contents to your computer and then format card in phone, then copy contents from the computer to card? I did this when I bought a 16Gb card and wanted to copy the contents from the 8Gb card I had ... formatting the 16Gb in the phone first to check it was happy!!!

I never set passwords for my card or phone because I know (have read it here and inother places) the chaos it can cause with firmware updates!!!

the JAF emulator which you need for installing the custom anna 7.9 on your Nokia 5800. the procedure is really simple, and if you want, i will upload a video on youtube on how to do it. you will need both of these files i have provided in the links below:
