    What exactly does Kies offer? It's got to be one of the clunkiest pieces of phoen software ever. It takes an age to boot on my machine and has a very annoying UI.Is it just the firmware update that's of benefit? Can I uninstall it without any major worries?

    As we are hoping for a Froyo 2.2 update in the next few weeks, and Kies is the only way to upgrade, I would consider keeping it unless your computer is very short od storage.

    I thought nokia PC suite was a pain, this is absolute rubish. Hopefully the upgrade will be better. One would hope.:mad:

    just to confirm, do we think that using kies is the only way to upgrade the phone to the latest firmware? (my phone is not tied to a mobile provider)

    if so then that means i am going to have to close linux and boot into windows (very long time when not using it every day) just to get the 2.2 update.

    boo :(
