New Firmware Update

Hi all this is my first post on here, I have just got my curve 8900 and I'm proper chuffed with it, battery life could be better though!

 

I see from the website that you can now download v4.6.1.217, I have 2 questions:

 

 

1) has anyone from the Uk on a Orange contact done this yet?

 

2) Does anyone know what it fixes?

 

 

Thanks

Re: New Firmware Update

i dont seem to be able to download the new firmware ota or via the desktop manager.  I dont know whether this is because orange have not yet confirmed the firmware update or what.

 

Is it still safe to update my firmware even though im on orange.

Re: New Firmware Update

Actually the latest OS released by any carrier for the 8900 is 4.6.1.152.

Get it here:

You can also review the comments there to see if it is an upgrade you wish to make. Look in the first post there for clickbacks to the previous OS .217 for user comments on it.

 

1. Yes.

2. There is no changelog given out by RIM on these upgrades. The best way is to review the posts from users who have done so.
