    No it will not. Whether a phone has multitouch is pretty much defined by its hardware. The Galaxy i5500 does not have the hardware to support multitouch.

    Depending on where you bought it, it might not be a Belgian phone at all. I bought mine as a deal in the Aldi, which are apparently German phones (Aldi bought them through Medion is what the label on the box says).

    But yeah, I'm still waiting as well.

    Oh ok :) same story here then. I also bought mine in the Aldi. But how u mean as a deal? Together with their mobile network? Or just for a nice price? I got mine just for the nice price and its also with the medion label on the box.

    Deal as in:
    a) it's not one of their regular products, hence it's a "deal".
    b) I bought mine when they knocked some more of the price after a month.

    On a side note: of course I didn't sign up for their mobile network. I'm a Mobile Vikings user, can't beat MV when it comes to Internet over phone.

    Hi folks,

    I have recently got the Europa and I keep hearing that 2.2 is available to download through Kies!

    Kies says that this version of the device cannot be updated!

    My firmware is PDA:JJ6 / PHONE:JG3 / CSC:JJ3 (XEU)

    Please help!

    Thankyou.

    It seems it is being slowly rolled out country by country, network by network. So far in the UK it seems to only be available on T-Mobile as of last week.
    Hopefully patience will pay off for all eventually.
