    Hi,

    I was told that I could "upgrade" my K750i just by opgrading the
    firmware.

    Is there any pro or cons ?

    TIA

    These are the only details I know:
    PROS: media player is better in W800. W800 also includes a flight mode where
    your phone can be switched off with the MP3 player still on.
    CONS: upgrading voids the warranty. And not too sure if it's a simple case
    of upgrading the firmware.

    I was under the empression that it was free. I jjust thought that I
    could DL the firmware update @ SE website and transfer it to the
    phone.

    I don't wanna spent £20 for such a update

    I guess I wan't be needing that update after all :-S

    Thankz though

    It's not really an update or upgrade. You actually put W800's software in a
    K750 phone. Both phones have the same hardware! In other words, it's the
    very same phone, but with different software.

    Hmmm, maybe I'll upgrade it when the guarantee has expired

    I'd call it a "downgrade" :-)

    I like the K750 features better.

    what can your K750, the W800 can't do?

    The improved Media Player is a dream.

    I frequently use the programable "mid-key"

    I don't use the media player.
    So, for my needs, the K750 serves me better.

    That's a point. It took me some days to "live without" it. Then I
    discovered, that I can set up these shortcuts to a menu I can access
    using the joystick.

    I do. Very often.
