Well,sitting here very cheesed off,and am dead envious of all you lucky people who now have v20,so hope it brings you the improvements you wanted.

I had downloaded 138mb of the 140 of v20 when my NSU decided it didn't want to play anymore and that now would be a great time to crash.

Tried several times since,but now it won't even start the download. Looks like I'll be with my N95 a little longer!

I'd imagine whomever VF send their phones off to to be repaired, Nokia I'd imagine, could learn the same thing and determine from this that you've changed your product code at one point and invalidated the warranty.

This is the only reason why I'm not changing my product number. I want my warranty to be valid in case anything goes wrong.
Thanks for the response! Looks like i'll be waiting for V20 from voda....hope its not too long!

I really like this update.
First of all, the phone feels like it had it's processor updated as well.
Everything is very fast now.

My GPS wasn't that bad before this update, but now I got a correct lock in 10-15 seconds, just as good as my TomTom.

Kinetic scrolling <3

Music player: It's getting there. Something still doesn't feel quite right,but it's getting there. (Btw Celios, you can get to the music library from the left button).
Going to music from the home screen -> back button -> home screen
Going to music from application -> back button -> back to library
Took the phone almost 2 hours to import/read 30 gig of music (5000 songs)

For me, who have a scandinavian keyboard with // hidden under the shift keys, the adjustments are now perfect (long press is enough)

Just completed my RM-507 v20 firmware upgrade.

Little faster...

Kinetic scrolling in contacts and app menu (about time). I don't like the little "rebound" effect when it hits the extremes of scrolling though!

Screen transitions? Other than the home screen swipe-on/swipe-off effect I don't see anything new.

I do like the scrubber bar in contacts now showing the first letter of the last name and snapping to the first in the letter series. That allows you to get to a person a little faster than before.

Now to load back my 41 apps, reconfigure/re-register them and then load my 4 GB of music and 1 GB of videos and the 2.5 GB of documents/pictures/books!

Yup, agreed. An update to version 1.05 (387) sorts that right out

I posted this comment in another thread but it is relevant here...

Since the v20 upgrade I have lost a significant amount of C: drive memory.

I am now down to less than 4 MB!!!

Tomorrow is a day-off from work, so I plan on doing a hard reset and installing everything from scratch to try and get my C: drive back to the 40 MB that I had prior to the reflashing that the NokiaCare center did (they installed the factory v12 distro including the games and bloatware). When my N97 came back, it was at 20 MB free on C:, then after the v20 firmware upgrade I'm now down to 4 MB.

I thought v20 was supposed to be more memory efficient?

Mine has been fine. Glad I dont have to press the function button for each number just press and hold. That makes things so much easier. Hasn't crashed or needed a reset yet. Seems more responsive too. Every little bit helps.

I think this may still be my last Nokia device though. Or at least any Nokia Symbian based phone.

Was about to say that, makes typing a lot quicker and easier, especially when putting passwords in etc!

Well, I just tried the video recording feature on my N97 which with previous firmwares functioned very poorly when zooming as it stuttered and stepped and just looked fecking awful.

And guess what?

It's still shit.

FFS, Nokia. Seriously. I'd have taken one up the poop shoot for you guys until got my N97. Now, with a GPS that sucks, a camera zoom that stutters more than Arkwright and the numerous other niggles, I'd as soon rip your face off than let you come anywhere near me with another Nokia device. I mean, I even, for one brief moment, thought I should have gone with an iPhone. FFS!!!

So, now I am lumbered with a flaky handset, that doesn't do the stuff it should or doesn't do it well enough, for two more years. Well, I'm not going to take it.

I will be contacting every consumer group that I can in a bid to rid myself of this P.O.S. at no further cost to myself.

My N95 is a far more competent device. How could Nokia have taken such a retrograde?

Hi
I have two rss feeds on my home screen set to update every 4 hours, since updating to v20 they don't update anymore.

Anyone else have this issue?

Well, I'm not really pleased as I don't feel any improvement in ram management. Still hangs up sometimes, now more often than with v12, esp. when the player is running.
