    I only received the phone yesterday. After spending about an hour looking through the menus, entering settings for data access, pairing bluetooth with my computer. I only discovered 2 problems 1) the ridiculous amount of time spent showing a Windoze style egg timer after telling it I wanted UK English after switching on the phone for the first time (I assumed it had crashed, but fortunately didn't attempt a reset, then after about 2 minutes it continued). 2) Once I got the internet working, I got a few low battery warnings when it had 87% charge, then it switched itself off.

    These were the only problems I discovered.

    Since the update, I found that it still displayed the egg time for a ridiculously long time when first switching it on again (no improvement at all). I have not had any low battery warnings so far.

    I'm amazed how fast Bluetooth 2.0 is! I used the address book in Mac OS X to send all of my contacts as v-cards to the phone (304 cards, some with addresses etc), and it took about 3 seconds. Unfortunately Apple haven't supported the M600i with iSync yet, so I've now got to work out how to get my calendars across and I'll be sorted.

    I haven't had a chance to see what 3G browsing is like, as my house is in a small partch without 3G signal (due to a hill I think).

    R4a

    Just had my phone firmware updated to R4A from R1A. Not totally sure but I think I am disappointed!

    1. Still have the problem of my Jabra BT headset not keeping the bond and having to power off the phone and restart the process from the beginning. Also getting failure with Kern 3 even though it succeeds. Callers now complaining a bit about the sound whereas last night on R1A the Jabra, while the process was flawed, at least sounded amazing.

    2. Still cannot get the headset to recognize voice dialling from contacts.

    I am totally in love with the phone visually, tactile, and other ways, but to have this many bugs, and be this difficult to set up is ridiculous.

    Giving it another few days then returning to my PEBL and H500 perfection.

    If any of you have any other ideas about 1/2 please let me know!

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Not sure, maybe it's just the placebo effect, but the internet browser seems to load up faster. That's about all it fixed from the previous firmware for me. I haven't had a BT problem since I updated to the previous firmware, but then again I use an SE BT headset(HBH-610) so that won't help anyone with a non SE headset.

    Didn't get a chance to see what version I had prior, but I know yesterday when I reflashed it it said I had the current firmware, now there was an update available

    Phone: CXC 162037 R3A004
    Bluetooth: CXC 162058 R3A01
    Organizer: CXC 162071 R3A06

    I haven't had much chance to play test it out. I've been having issues with the phone freezing up with the messaging portion of it, hopefully this fixes the problem. Let me know what you guys think of it
    Being a newbie to symbian, just got my m600i 2 days ago. My set has the above firmware/software whatever its call. My question is :

    Is it necessary/need to update it?
    If yes, where to find the update and how?

    Really need advice. Thanks

    May help to reflash you phone (honest). Also run your battery down and charge it over night to improve its calibration. Also when you reflash remember to make sure your battery is fully charged first. For some reason a second flsah can help or a Master Reset (remember to back-up first). Also if you don't use on screen hand writing the turn it off, it improved the speed of the device.

    not sure if mine took THAT long but it sure does take long...
    the downloading took forever (i wonder what the actual size of the file is) and updating too forever.... i'd say give or take 20 minutes....
    be patient and wait and see~

    On average, half an hour to DL and update, if it's seems like it's stuck I give it an hour and unplug it. Every time I've pulled it when it says its still going, everything has been fine. I would however flash twice. No harm in doing it twice, for some reason the phone is better after flashing twice back to back, could just be me though.
