Vodafone firmware update

Below is an excerpt from a discussion I had with Sendo Support today. I was complaining of another problem but I took the opportunity to ask about the Vodafone firmware situation.

In short the firmware has been written but is still being tested. It will be released via the website asap (timescale to be confirmed).

Discussion follows (most recent message first):

Rest assured we already have a recent firmware update in the approval
process at Vodafone and we are simply awaiting the result of that.

Thank you for your response.

In fact I have now returned the phone to Vodafone.
Sadly they were unable to do a straight swap as they
have now discontinued the phone and have no more
internal stock.

There are a few left on their website so I may buy
another one. However, I am not confident that you
would bother developing new software/firmware for
Vodafone if the take up has been so low on that
network.

Thank you for your enquiry.

1.We are waiting approval from Vodafone for the latest firmware
release. Sendo are continually working with operators/distributors to gain
approval of new firmware. Unfortunately, as the approval process varies
between operators/distributors we cannot provide an accurate timescale.


However, rest assured Sendo will work closely with
operators/distributors to gain the approval as soon as possible. When the new firmware is available it will be posted on our website (including release notes) via
http://www.sendo.com/smartphones/downloads.asp

Thats good news

I have a question though... Now Vodafone doesnt seem to support the phone too well anymore, are they still required to approve software?

And next time?

Whats to stop Vodafone taking another 3 months longer to approve the next software update next time?

Whats to stop them caring at all given (for some reason) they no longer sell it (alledgedly - every Voda shop I go into in London is selling it quite happily) ?

Surely a better thing is for Voda to agree with Sendo to release control and for Sendo to simply issue the Voda update with all the rest.

What do people think?

That would be nice, but I think some contract issues between Sendo and Vodafone might prevent that.

I'd settle for the first Vodafone update, but it seems to be taking forever
and that's more frustrating. Especially seeing as plinkykev has already announced
it's been approvide and will be on the website soon. Come on plinkykev, give us
a clue !

Great news! I will be buying a new Voda X in the next few days as my old one had to be returned (dodgy earpiece).

Meanwhile I'd love to hear reports from people who upgrade - what are the improvements?

Sorry, i didnt mean it like that, i meant just see see if there is noticable differences And so far the phone actually seems slightly faster and the colours seem more crisp

Which new theme are you referring to? The user created ones a while back or the ones on the Sendo website?
