    Upgrading firmware

    First Post Alert.....

    Got my N95 8gb a couple of days ago, and so far, I'm very impressed!

    Had a good look around on the web though and have seen lots about upgrading the firmware. Mine is set to v11.xxxxx so I want to take advantage of the v15.xxx release - I found somewhere on here about changing the device code (mine won't update via the Nokia Updater) and to be honest, I'm buggered if I can find it again. I will eventually though - or if someone can point me in the right direction.....

    My question is though, will the update stop my preloaded copy of Spiderman3 working? Or will it be deleted as part of the update? I'm guessing it will be deleted, but some advice would be good!

    thanks

    The code is on the Nokia label underneath your battery,not sure though if debranding and updating the FW will affect your Spidey film as i haven't tried it yet on the mrs N95-2.

    Thats great - thanks.

    Just need to find the instructions for changing the code and I'm good to go.

    Might have to watch Spidey on the train first though!

    Hi,

    I got my n95 8gb from an o2 store last week. Firstly the nokia software update states that i have the lastest firmware even though i have v11.xxxxx, please advise if o2 have not accepted the latest firmware,

    Secondly the sim i have is years old and therefore not 3g, what will be the advantages of having the new sim??

    Thanks

    the sim should ben able to use 3G as long as you make sure your netwrok has enabled data on your account !
    Spidey 3 will be replaced when you upgrade the firmware as long as you do a content copy/back up via the Nokia PC suite content copier .
    The reason you have to back up the phone is so that you do not lose the license that enables you to view the film.
    I have upgraded twice and experienced no problems .
    That said I would severely think twice about changing your product code as it will invalidate the warranty.
    All UK networks have approved V15 now so it's only a matter of a week or so untill NSU allows you to update your firmware without changing the product code.
    Vodafone handsets can already upgrade on NSU.
    V15 is the latest version for all N95-2 handsets now

    Sorry for being off topic BUT: The sim i have is 2/3 years old, i called o2 the other day and they said i'd need a new sim to enable video calls etc... Is this correct or should i call them to enable data???
    What does having 3G enable me to do??

    With regards to the firmware update, i will wait the extra week to see if my PC Suite registers new firmware any time soon.

    Thanks

    best bet then is to call O2 and say you want a new sim to enable you to use new services (eg 3) and they should send you a replacement for free !
    Or just pop into your local O2 dealer

    As yet there appear to be no plans to go beyond V20 for the N95-1 as it seems to have cured most ills

    No worries
    The date I posted was the date of the software matrix telling us what software is current for which network so not relevant the handsets themselves

    Hi, just got a N95-2 last week on v11 and would like to get in on v15. I can copy the spidey film to my PC, what do I need to backup to maintain the license?

    I plan to upgrade firmware soon so I did a backup using Nokia Content Copier. I understand that it is recommended to do a second backup of contacts only, using PC Sync. But if I sync with Microsoft Outlook which I've never used, will it simply copy my contacts to Microsoft Outlook (and where exactly? I don't have an email account with them), or will it sync and therefore delete my contacts from my phone (because I don't have any contacts in Microsoft Outlook)?

    I have searched but I'm just confused because people are saying to restore contacts only. What is the point in doing a backup in Content Copier if you should only restore contacts?!? I want to restore all my data as I have a lot of music,videos etc.

    to back up your data files such as music and videos, you don't need to use content copier. just copy them over to the pc via mass storage mode. you're using the N95 8GB right? your phone has phone memory, and the 8gb memory. if i'm not mistaken, a firmware upgrade will only format the phone memory. so if your data files are on the 8GB, it should be safe. better if those with the N95 8GB can confirm this.

    another way to backup contacts is:

    To back up your contacts

    Go to the Contacts Menu> Options> Mark All> Options> Copy> To memory/memory card

    its only recommended to restore the contacts and messages, because when you do a full backup, you're backing up the settings and applications as well which could break the phone functions or even screw the phone. its better to start afresh. but for data files such as music or videos should be safe to restore or copy over from the pc
