    Anyone know where I can get a list of SE service center locations? Or even
    better yet, does anyone know of anyone in upstate SC that can flash my new
    T616 with the latest firmware? I currently have R1A (on a brand new phone!
    GAH!), and the phone is completely unlocked.

    I suggest e-mailing SE via their website. You'll get a reply within a couple
    of days with address' for nearest centre to take your phone there and to
    send via post. You will need proof of purchase for both methods plus it's
    wise to put all phone numbers, up to 99, on to the sim card.

    Apologies - they still list the centres on my localised Sony Ericsson site
    (sonyericsson.com.au), seems strange that they wouldn't do it across all
    their regional sites.

    Thank you much. I shot them an email the other day, but thus far no
    response. I must practice patience <wink>.

    Do you know what they need for proof of purchase? I am not sure I retained
    the receipt.

    Practice lots of patience, sent them a question over a month ago, eventually
    got a response to say they would get back to me in 2 days. Over 2 weeks
    later, no response. Responded mentioning the case number, "sorry, lost your
    case, what was the question again?" Still waiting. How do you lose a case
    number from a computerised system???

    When I went to an SE service centre to get a software update, they scanned
    the phone's IMEI number to check the warranty. Depends how up to date they
    are though, best to phone ahead.

    Well, you're stupid enough to post a question directed at yourself. Go
    figure.

    agreed, phone ahead first, but maybe your contract, if you are on one that
    is. otherwise, not sure, just ring and ask/beg/plead/bribe your way into
    getting them to do it.

    If you don't know the correct answer, please don't post lies, moron. And if
    you do, and make a mistake, expect to be flamed when you are doing it in a
    sassy sort of omnipotent way, just to get your dick crammed in the dirt when
    you are wrong. I asked a simple question, to which you wrongly answered
    rudely, so of course I am going to post something equally as stupid.

    Better than e-mailing them just call them for info.

    I just purchased a T616 and was trying to get its firmware upgraded.

    SE has two numbers:

    The main customer service/technical support

    # 800-374-2776

    but if you call them they'll direct you to the SE Software/Firmware
    support which is

    # 877-234-3249

    I called them and told me that there were no local walk in service
    centers in my area (Nor Cal) and I'd have to send the phone in to have
    it done. There is no charge for the upgrade but there is a $37
    shipping charge to send the phone back to you. They said the normal
    turn around time is 24 to 48 hrs after the phone is received by them.

    But... after reading numerous phone forums, people whom have sent
    their phone to SE have said it takes weeks (2+) and many are still
    waiting for the phone to return.

    So after further reading of the phone forums I found a place a lot of
    people recommended that can do the job quickly. More info on them is
    at

    www.globalmob.com

    I just sent them my phone on Mon 12/15 and I should get it back
    tommorrow 12/18.

    Before sending them my phone, I called them to ask them a few
    questions. My main question was what was the difference between
    sending my phone to SE and getting it upgraded or sending it to them.
    They told me that they were SE, or in other words, they were a
    contractor that SE uses to upgrade their phones.

    If it wasn't for the other positive reviews/comments from others, I
    won't have sent my phone to them.

    If you like some major info on your phone (and other SE phones)
    including upgrades, go to this forum:

    http://www.howardforums.com/forumdis...030&forumid=37

    or if that link is bad go to:

    http://www.howardforums.com/

    then select the Manufacturers Discussion_SonyEricsson link


    hope this helps.

    Jeff

    Thanks for the info. I have read much positive info on
    http://www.globalmob.com/ also. I guess I will just go this route as I have
    no desire to be left on hold for an hour or so with SE CS.
