Default Firmware upgrade problem?

Please Login to Remove!

Both my wife and I have the 8520 Curve, both handsets are unlocked/Unbranded.

I am O2-UK (PAYG) and my wife just swiched over to them as well from Orange UK.

Now, the problem is, I can upgrade my Firmware (I currently have 5.0.0.592) and my wife has 4.6.1.314) and she can not upgrade to the version I have!!

Any ideas?!

You can upgrade to whatever version you want, following the instructions in the stickied thread at the top of this device forum.

IMHO, if the device isn't broken, then it doesn't need to be fixed with a minor OS upgrade.

Things get changed either for better or worse, so if your device works as you need and want, then you should think twice before you upgrade.

OS 5.0 offers a better browser.
New features, like controlling which email address are included in the messages folder.
Setting custom alerts for individual contacts

there are really a lot of other features.

You can always upgrade and downgrade if you do not like the new OS.

and to add some more

- Users will be able to set their default download folder, wallpaper, theme and reset the icon layout of a theme to its default layout from xxx8220;Homescreen Preferencesxxx8221;
- Holding the Menu key will bring up Application Switcher as it currently does on the Storm/newer Bold OS builds/etc
- When an item is highlighted in a menu setting, hitting the Menu key will select it as it currently does on the Storm
- If the device is running low on memory, a message will pop up that not only informs the user of the low memory buy also recommends rarely used apps for deletion
- Users can decide if they want to have sounds when the device is booting up, shutting off, plugged in to charge, unplugged from charging, when the battery is full and when the battery is kaput
- Users can now individually encrypt email PIN messages. All that is needed is for the sender and receiver to know the encryption password which is done via S/MIME
