    I did yesterday if you read my posts but there is a problem with it and Virgin Mobile,for some reason it wouldn't send texts with packet data turned on. I called Virgin and it is being looked into. So I rolled it back to 2.2 as I cant live without texts or internet lol.

    I have tried to get firmware update from KA7 to KC1 through kies...... but after the downloading of firmware the message shows "Firmware Upgrade in progress" but Progress shows 0%
    On mobile there is green downloading message on black screen.......
    3 hours passed nothing happened ..... I disconnected the mobile from PC & restarted..... The mobile works fine no difference in firmware.... its still KA7......
    I have tried 3-4 times the same procedure & ended up with same results...... no upgrade.....
    Using a laptop with 2GB RAM & Windows 7 OS.... 1MB/S internet connection.... latest KIES from samsung website installed..... Tried the upgarde on various time .... late night ... early morning... in the day time..... but no results... what should I do.....
    will the samsung service center guys upgrade it free of charge?

    Hi everybody, wherever you may be in the world.
    I've just been into the headquarters of 02-UK & discussed kies upgrades of firmware & Gingerbread 2.3. There are no official updates issued by 02-UK at this time. They expect a release from Samsung in the coming weeks, but can't say when. They stated that the releases by "3" & Vodafone etc in the U.K. are buggy, so they will only release a stable version when it is available. Hey ho!! GrahamF. London. :thinking:

    3 have not yet released it so o2 are just talking shite. Thats one of the reasons i moved from them (the main reason being their whole 3g network is creaking at the seams and has poor coverage!)

    Hey guys me not from London, though I bought the Ace very recently. It's got 2.2 on it and when I connect it to the PC via USB , Kies tells me that This version of the Device cannot be updated. and gives me the current firmware version as PDA:KA9/ PHONE:KA6/CSC:KA5(PRT). Now what I'm not sure of is weather this is a problem with the registry keys or something else. Any help please???? Build number FROYO.XWKA9
