    I bought the Nexus One from Vodafone on a two-year contract expecting to get updates directly from Google. However, I soon discovered that Vodafone had customised the Nexus One software so that updates were delayed. Eventually, I managed to replace the Vodafone ROM with the standard Google ROM and got my Nexus One updates at the same time as other Nexus One owners. In addition, I discovered that my GPS signal at home from Vodafone was bad but if I used a different SIM to get better reception then I still had to pay for my Vodafone SIM.

    After that experience I vowed never to be a customer of Vodafone or any other telephone company so that I can use the SIM which works best at home. I would have preferred the Note to be able to get updates direct from Google, but at least my updates are not further delayed by telephone companies.

    I recently updated my UK ROM to a German ROM in order to get the latest firmware and here is a link to the details. Good Luck.
