    Yes that is correct, you can walk into alot of mobile stores and they will upgrade the firmware for you at a price.
     
    Honestly how many mobile phone users do you know that would.....
    a) know that this service exists..
    b) pay for this service..
     
    Myself, I could count them on one hand.
     
    Regards,
    Kane

            You can get updates for money.
            Here in germany you pay about 20 Euro for updating firmware, but like
            old bugs told us, Nokia doesn't really care about there mistakes.
