    It's the same phone, same model number!

    Spica is the global name, Portal UK name.

    Yes you would as it's simply a regional name. It's the same spec, same model number etc. The only difference is the name, obv for marketing reasons.

    I may be out of the game so to speak in terms of the Spica but given all of the lying T-Mobile UK complaints did I'm wondering if the update has shown up on T-Mobile and how anyone's getting on with the complaints department these days?

    Make sure ALL usb connecting to your computer are unplug. ONLY leave the one connecting to your phone. I did all this on a Acer Atom laptop soo i think it should be a piece of cake you all of you =)

    Back up your contacts! not sure how to backup sms( you don't need to back up sms)

    1.do a hard reset on your phone by punching in some code on the dial pad (you can look that up, i don't know if i can post this on here)

    2.Make sure you have downloaded NPS(new pc studio) from Samsung website(not Kies) before connecting your phone

    RESTART COMPUTER

    3.After the hard reset, goto settings , find SD card/Phone storeage..you should see a section call Mass Storage Only, you need to UNCHECK that (i think this is the main problem why the phone isn't connecting to the NPS)

    i think this should solve the problem.

    One more thing, if your computer is unwilling to recognize your phone, turn your phone off then back on while leaving the USB plug to your computer

    (EDIT)

    N P S should be Version 1.5 instead of 1.4

    I'm really starting to lose hope in this phone because of this issue. I'v tried 5 differnt versions o NPS and none work. Not only that but each one took over 3 hours do d/l from the samesung site.

    This reminds me of 15+ years ago on dialup trying to make my ibm/apple's mouse work and spending days updating and dealing with issues.

    lol i did it, i wasn't expecting it to work. i spend a whole night trying to figure out how to flash to 2.1 then i saw this pop up saying i could upgrade .. i went ahead , thinking i need a new 1.5 firmware on my phone before flashing.

    waited about 5 mins and then BAM.. 2.1

    i was so surprised, told everyone i knew about it, no one knew what i was talking about cause they all have the iphones LOL

    NPS version 1.5, just make sure of that !
    USB unplug except for phone
    Uncheck mass storage under SD card in settings

    try that !

    Hello,

    I live in Bulgaria. Last night I tried updating the firmware but I had no luck. I downloaded NPS 1.5. It recognizes the phone but there is no update available for the device. I'm wondering if I change the country were I'm living in with for example UK or Canada, in the beginning of NPS installation, am I going to be able to update the firmware or the IP address is telling the program that I live in different country than that witch I Chose? I don't want to update it trough Odin because I'll lose the warranty of the device.

    10x in advance.
    Ivan,

    Well after calling Roger's and having them tell me there is no update at all and to call samsung, I called samsung. Samsung says they know nothing about any update and to call rogers.

    I disconnected my phone and it dosnt work at all. It shows a picture of my phone connected to a computer with a hazard symbol in between. The computer wont recognize it or anything and i cant do anything with my phone at all...

    I've had no problems connecting to NPS, but it says there are no updates available. I'm so frustrated as I've been waiting for 6 months for the update! What countries are those people who have updated with NPS? I'm in the UK

    I bought my spica brand new in the box and it came with 2.1 installed. Had a sticker on the box to point that out and a check of the phone revealed it was 2.1 not 1.6

    Complain at, I assume, Tmobile via their twitter acct at feeling unloved by both Tmobile and Samsung.

    I emailed and tweeted Samsung, and they couldnt even be bothered to reply! What excellent customer service! Once you've bought their device, they have your money and couldnt give a rats ass about you or your phone it seems.

    Can anyone from the UK confirm that they got a Galaxy i5700 to update to v2.1 through the NPS or Keis software?

    When I try to upgrade the i5700 through the NPS software it says that 'No upgrade is necessary'. I'm using NPS v1.5.1.10064_2.

    I would try out the Odin method, but I'm a bit worried about voiding the 12 month warranty that I have (I purchased this phone unlocked and second-hand from CEX, a store which sells second-hand electronics).

    What I'd like to know is that if the Odin method will work with an unlocked phone that was previously on T-mobile. Here are the build details:

    Firmware: 1.5
    Kernel: 2.6.27
    Baseband: i5700XXIK2
    Build number: CUPCAKE.XXIL3

    There is no update available through NPS. Kies is only used once you get 2.1.

    The Odin route is easy enough. My phone was locked to T-Mobile but after a couple of flashes with Odin, is not!

    Anyone interested in starting a facebook group to highlight t-mobile's shocking after sales upgrades.

    A bit of negative publicity might be just the kick in the arse they need...

    I did suggest someone start a T-mobile/Samsung 2.1 update protest page. It worked for the HTC hero owners on Orange and Three!

    I dont use Facebook, otherwise I'd do it.
