    I think that I have purchased either the WORST PHONE on the market, or maybe
    mine is just a P.O.S. . . Hard to say because I haven't called Nokia yet ..
    by the way ... when I do, will I be talking to America?

    Pretty much I can make calls, recieve calls, send and receive text but other
    than that, I have to open the back, remove and replace the battery every
    time I attempt ANYTHING else. Even trying to back up, the phone locks up.

    Is there a reset hole or am I going to wear out the battery cover, because I
    have had to reboot 3 times already this morning .. the last time being when
    I tried to back up the phone ...

    aaarrggghhhhh ... A big chuck of change thrown out the window I am afraid
    ....

    You may need to update the firmware on your new phone. This can be done
    by yourself now. <http://www.nokia.com.au/nokia/0,,96565,00.html>

    If you're in the USA who is your service provider? They may have something
    to do with your problems, or not.

    Most likely you will talk with someone in India, if you call a support line
    for American customers, as they are a lot cheaper and speaks in many case
    better english.

    I suggest you get back to the store and get your phone replaced.

    Seems to me the only download is for the Nokia program . I don't remember
    seeing a firmware update.

    I guess I am going to have to call NOkia .. ugh ... I went to the website,
    downloaded and ran the update program. Get to the point where it checks my
    phone to see if I need to install updates, and the phone loses the
    connection with the program .. I tried it about a dozen times .. each time
    the same. Is there a place where I can see what version I have installed ?
    if yes, what should it be? Diane

    It says it has disconnected, but just leave it go and it does what it
    has to!

    Thanks, for your help .. I think what the updater said was there are no
    updates for your phone, and then I look at the connection and it says it is
    disconnected. I purchased this phone new, so it MUST need to be updated
    right?

    I really should finish a few cups of coffee before trying to think ...

    What version should I have ? And where do I look to see?

    Welcome to the World of Nokia! I suspect they must be installing Windows
    on their phones or something now, as their old models were far faster
    and more reliable. The more "features" they add, the more unstable the
    phones become. My advise, try another brand until Nokia get their act
    together...
