  2. so where is it, when you go to the Nokia website they report still the old version, if you use the updater NSU it also says the old version..

  3. is your device a free one?

  4. If you mean sim locked, no its not :)I see that many people are unable to get the new release. I have tried several CODEs as well but NSU reports still the old release version.

  5. Yes, I mean if it´s a free or a sim-locked device. So today i´ve heard in several forums that many people all over the world can´t update their E90, but some said in the NSC you can make it. I can´t test it, because I have no E90…

  6. please anyone can tell me where can i get this formware as nokia is showing the same old firmware..

  7. how and where can i get this firmware…

  8. […] SymbianWorld gibt es für das Nokia E90 ein neues Firmware-Update mit einer Vielzahl der üblichen […]

  9. Some people from Germany said that you get it in the Nokia Service Center´s…

    But unfortunately you can´t get it over the NSU yet…

  10. Here in Denmark we can get it from service center only

  11. In the Moment the update is ONLY available on the Nokia Service Point not over the NSU.
    Today i have updated there, and now i will test tis update.

  12. I have E90 from UAE, to date i couldnt found the update thru NOKIA NSU
    Is there any solution

  13. I have an E90 in the UK, the NSU still reports the old version.

  14. Immer die selbe Geschichte: Vor-vor-vorankündigung von Updates.
    Schlimm genug, dass es noch kein Update gibt. Aber schlimmer noch ist, dass auf fast jeder entsprechenden Seite die Updates (die vermutlich auch die Seitenbetreiber nicht haben) angekündigt werden.

    Liebe Leute, lasst euch nicht ins Boxhorn jagen.

    ES GIBT zur Zeit KEIN UPDATE !

  15. Doch es gibt ein Update, wie ich schon schrieb, allerdings beim Nokia Service Point – dort wirts aufgespielt.Und zwar genau DAS:

  16. After the hot discussed update version Nokia released the new version from the NSU and now there is a Update to the Firmware version
    Jap, this is the trtut.

  17. i am from India, i tried NSU to update the firmware, but it still shows, as i have seen lot of people are having this problem, can anyone tell how to get teh updated version ??

  18. And same here (Italy). NSU can’t find any upgrade… 😦

  19. Using product code “0545991” I can see

    Beside my E90’s code ends with “7” 😐

    Too bad…

  20. i have the old version and i face a problem when talking , i hear some noises and people whom i i talk with tell me that they hear a lot of noises such as i am standing in an area with winds

  21. to m

    this is a problem i bought a phone from syria with the same defect, its a fulty mic, it leaves an echo and it sounds like you are talking from a speeding car with the window open…its a 60 dollar fix.

  22. Es wird durch die vielen Kopien des Artikels, die im Internet auf Seiten auftauchen, die jedes Gerücht als eigens recherchiert darstellen, auch nicht wahr, dass es ein Update auf der Nokia-Seite gäbe!

    Ich schrieb bereits:

    Nun kann ich es noch genauer sagen:
    Immer die selbe Geschichte: Vor-vor-vorankündigung von Updates.
    Schlimm genug, dass es noch kein Update gibt. Aber schlimmer noch ist, dass auf fast jeder entsprechenden Seite die Updates (die TATSÄCHLICH auch die Seitenbetreiber nicht haben) angekündigt werden.

    Liebe Leute, lasst euch nicht ins Boxhorn jagen.

    ES GIBT zur Zeit KEIN UPDATE, jedenfalls nicht Übers Netz.
