Hi @Chenz116

 

No update on this release as of yet. You can also try checking for a software update via Kies software on PC/Laptop.

Hi starz

I am aware of the way updates are rolled out by o2 thanks. Reason I was asking for info on this is because updates were due to commence last week just wanted to know if they had started or is there some hold up

Yes, unfortunately my phone model is identified as not supported for initilisation and nothing else I could do helped. I dropped it into the O2 store today and they are sending it in for fixing.
