    I am and my local 3 shop monkey just looked confused when I asked about an update. I can never understand what apu is saying so won't even bother calling them.

    My phone was on build number R1****14 and I gave up waiting and just rooted to get the latest update but this will void your warranty and will be a bit of a faff to go back when the re OS update comes out.

    As I have said on other threads, I wont link to any how to's as if you can't google for it I doubt you can root :)

    Root the phone.
    Im with 3 Australia and we are the last to get anything.
    I did it with the wonderful help from the guys at XDA and it took all of 15 minutes. (And I have never modified a phone before)
    Better battery life, responds better, better WIFI connectivity.

    Just do it :)

    There has been some success with people using the repair phone option on the PC Companion support service and that gives the latest firmware when everything else says you are up to date. You do have to back everything up first tho, cos I think it pretty much factory resets your phone. People are up to R2BA026 now so R1...14/16 is quite a ways behind.

    mite be worth a try for me then, the phone was on o2 but its unlocked with me three sim in there,
    is there any was of me backing up all the settings too as i had to put them in manuelly which is a pain in the arse, bien three never gave me the rite settings in the first place, i had to mess around wif it for couple hrs to find um,
    could it be the fact the handset was o2 origanlly ? ? ?

    I am on 16 which was on the handset when i got it, would really like to get the update
