firmware upgrade

Hi folks,

I'm new to this posting lark, but checked many posts. After much reading I thought it was about time to get my 7650 firmware upgraded - 3.16 to 4.46. good move, I hear you say.....

Found the relevant NCS at CPW in local area. Phoned ahead, they had latest firmware, take a couple of hours, they said, and from reading all the other posts it would seem to be a simple job.

Before, I go back and start making a fuss, I just want to get my facts straight. As I understand, its simply reflashing the ROM with new software - therefore delete the old stuff and put on the new stuff - correct?

My phone will now be away for about 14days, as the NCS said when they tried to put the new firmware on it corruted the software, they tried twice but to no avail and as a result the phone has been rendered unusable! grrrr

Is this information correct - surely if there's a problem on my phone, then they just have to reflash the new firmware onto it - problem solved, job's a good 'un.

Any information much appreciated, before I go and have a.......quiet word at the CPW.
