Applied update to my RM-507 NAM White N97...

No hard reset.
Lost 6 MB on C: drive
Shows 47MB RAM in-use / 26 MB RAM free.
Menus a bit snappier, but annoying flashes of screen segments while switching displays.

Noticed an app that wasn't there before: Share Location Widget
Can't find it to assign to a full or 1/4 position on the home screen.
Must be a child widget to the new Maps app.

Hmmm - not good. Was hoping this update might have cured this annoying little critter, but seems not so. If that hasn't been addressed, I suspect the call answering bug also has not been dealt with?

Back home tonight ( weekend , yay! ) so will be trying the update tomorrow.

Yup default ringtone still at times.

Has it fixed the memory swap (from mass to phone in messages) yet or not?

I did a complete format of memory card and a hard rest of phone before applying update, and then the same again after applying update. i re-installed most of my apps and the new free maps, and i have to say my facebook app alone runs at least three times quicker.

Using Handy Taskman after boot, and hitting "close all" (which leaves just Home Screen and Menu open) i get 61mb of RAM, and then after I've opened and closed a few apps then use Handy Taskman to close all again it settles to about 50mb.

Has anyone experienced a major improvement in Bluetooth Handset call quality with FW V21?

I often received comments about my voice 'breaking up' during bluetooth calls on V20 with a 5yo Motorola headset, and assumed the headset was on it's last legs.

Since the upgrade to V21 this week, several people have asked if I was on speaker instead of the headset because the call quality is so much better?

How do y'all!

It seems v21 is now available for UK Unbranded handsets. I'm currently downloading it now, after a quick backup.

I found it through the latest Ovi Suite, but for all I know it may be available through the standalone NSU and OTA as well.
