Trying to upgrade my Nokia E90 – Nokia Updater DOESN’T DO VISTA???

There is nothing worse than standing next to someone who’s phone is running faster than yours.

It just isn’t cricket and it’s nigh on unbearable for me.

With fellow SMS Text News contributors, James Whatley and Ben Smith this evening, I was the pauper in the corner.

With a top of the range E90 handset.

I was trying to download a game on my phone — a few meg — and unfortunately, it was crawling along at some annoying 10k/second style ‘3G’ speed. Useless.

So I just tried to see if I could upgrade the phone (and maybe flash the Vodafone firmware to support 3.5G?)…

Here’s what I got from the Nokia Software Updater:

Well that’s a piece of shit, isn’t it.

A month ago it worked perfectly fine. THIS (He says, pointing at the computer) is the SAME computer I used to upgrade my Nokia and find out that the backup didn’t backup properly.

Who is in charge of this NONSENSE?

They need a slap.

It’s simply not good enough.

One minute it works. Next minute it’s hobbled. What the hell am I meant to do now? Now that some pencil pusher in Finland has decided to disable the sodding updater? What the ……..

Absolutely TIP TOP STUPID.

124 billion dollar company and they keep.On.FALLING over their sodding shoelaces.

Well screw that.

Sony Ercisson, anybody?

I remember when the installer required your windows xp to prove it had more then 256 mb of ram
before running. that killed it for me for the longest time. Stopped supporting vista? what a bunch
of NUMPTY's…. Seriously what are they smoking at nokia.
