Default Total newbie - upgrade s/w from Vodafone UK

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I am really sorry that this is covering old ground but I have hunted around and I simply dont understand some of the terminology.

I have version 4.2.0.61
I found the 'official' vodafone UK RIM s/w download - version 4.2.0.79

But the issue is that I want my TomTom Plus (traffic) to finally work. It seems as though the new 4.2.1 works. I hear people mention 'TIM (Italy)' and 'ALX' files but I just dont know what to do.

I dont know where to begin - I am worried if I download the software I will lose my vodafone branding etc which im happy with or it might affect the phone in some way. Is it possible to get the latest software and still have my phone themes/settings etc OK?

Once again, sorry. I hate being the total newbie who asks dumb questions but I just would really like a quick 'do x then y then z'.

Thanks so much,

Neil

You will not lose the vodafone branding with any OS, that is hard coded in the device. You can retain your themes and settings fine. You could have a glitch here or there with a new OS, that is the gamble. But overall, you should not have a problem.

Bottom-line--if you are not comfortable doing this, don't.
