New Firmware v4 available

I've just heard that there is a new firmware available from Nokia, v4.0623.0.41, that addresses the Bluetooth problem. Yahoo. next stop - Nokia Service Centre this weekend.

Nice one..

I've just confirmed this with an independent Milton Keynes service centre - it was released yesterday. Unfortunately they aren't open at weekends so I'll have to squeeze a rush trip into my lunch hour next week..

I used to have the impression that with S60 3rd, you wouldn't have to go to a Nokia Service Center. I thougth the system had FOTA (firmware over-the-air). If anyone like me also thought so, I can tell you that unfortunately, it's not so. You still have to take the trip. (I called Nokia Support just now and asked.)

Only with Feature Pack 1 ( http://www.mobile-review.com/review/...3dfp1-en.shtml ) of S60 3rd, there will be FOTA. (But I suppose that will never run on a N80 - not sure.)

If I have it flashed this weekend at a service centre, what should I back up first? Or will they do this themselves? If not whats the best way to back things up, Nokia suite?

just got of the phone to my local service center...They have the V4 firmware. It will be free under warranty to upgrade to the operators version (orange) or £15 to upgrade to the generic version.

May wait for it somebody to post it on here though! lol

Just rang my local Nokia Centre. Although he wasn't sure if they had it, he said that firmwares are distributed to all Nokia Centres at the same time in the UK...... so if one has it, they all have it!

Will be going in tomorrow morning!

Yep. I recommend make a backup of your phone and extract your memory card before upgrading firmware.
You will be able to restore all info after flashing your N80.
