NOKIA FIRMWARE UPGRADE SERVICE

Post-in Nokia Mobile Phone firmware upgrade service available now!

**This upgrade service is ONLY available to UK customers**

What is Nokia Firmware Upgrading?

When most mobile phones are released to the public for purchase/upgrade/etc, the phones are shipped with the 'current' software (firmware) installed. This firmware could be outdated immediately as the phones themselves could be sitting on a shelf for months on end until they are sold to you. Upgrading the phone to the 'latest' firmware ensures that you are getting the most out of the phone as intended by you and Nokia when you bought it.

So why the need to upgrade?
If you imagine the phone's firmware like a computer's Operating System, i.e. Microsoft Windows XP™ or Linux, then you'll know about the updates that are available to you when they improve on a feature, whether it's an update for a security patch or fault in a specific program or even just to give you new features.

Well, a mobile phone manufacturer does the same with their firmware updates; they improve on features, fix known problems and 'bugs' (faults) and/or provide extra functions (phone dependant of course). As an example, when Nokia brought out the N70 ('Nseries' range), the first couple of firmwares available (including the ones shipped with the phone) provided the phone with a terrible Bluetooth Connectivity issue, whereby connected devices would connect/disconnect/connect etc. Latest Firmwares available resolve this issue.

So why use Advanced PC's to upgrade your phone?
If you are reading this, chances are you already know about firmware upgrading and it's benefits. Say for example you have an 'Orange' provided N70. Many providers like Orange will give you 'extra' on the phone; in Orange's case, it's a really nice 'Desktop'. We all know it's not. Providers' extras tend to be more of a hindrance, rather than any help and are known to stop certain functionality of the phone as intended.

If you were to take your phone to Carphone Warehouse or any other Nokia Service Centre, they would have to give you the providers firmware (Orange/T-Mobile etc). This is fruitless as it's this very content that's causing you the no end of headaches with your phone.

We use Original Nokia Firmwares so can rid you of those nasty 'extras' and give your phone the full functionality as you wanted it to be in the first place. If you do happen to like your Service Providers content, then we can give you the latest firmware provided by them too (Note though that sometimes a Providers firmware is out of date). This can be advised to us when you order the upgrade.

How would I know what my current firmware version is?
Simply press the following keys on your phone (in standby/desktop mode) and in this order:

*#0000#

You will see something like this (N95 used as example):

V 30.0.015
05-09-08
RM-159

Once you have this information, take a note of it and make reference to the table/list below. If the version on the list by your phone model is showing higher, then you'd ideally need an upgrade. If your phone is working fine as it is and you don't seem to have any fault, then it's upto you if you require the upgrade.

So how much will this upgrade cost me?
Every phone that we upgrade is charged at 15GBP. This includes a firmware upgrade, test and then it's sent via a Recorded Delivery service back to your door. We use either Initial City-Link or Royal Mail for providing the postal service. In both cases, your phone is covered by insurances.

Why not talk to friends and family about having their phones upgraded to? (we can only currently upgrade Nokia's) That way, you can combine them together in the same package to save on postal costs sending them to us (unfortunately we can't cover the costs involved for sending us the phones).

How long does it take to upgrade my phone?
We usually upgrade your phones and send them back to you the same day too if possible. Say you were reading this on Monday morning at work, decided you wanted the service we are providing, popped your phone in a padded envelope and sent it off that afternoon.. We'd receive it Tuesday morning, get it upgraded to your requirements and get it back out to you that afternoon / evening. You'd take receipt of your phone at home or work place Wednesday.

Tell me what do I have to do to get my Nokia Phone Upgraded then..
It's extremely simple:

Step 1 -
Take a look at the list below to see if your phone model has a newer version available (we update this daily so check back if an upgrade isn't available). If so, then continue on to step 2.

Step 2 -
Click here to complete the Order Form and once completed, you will see a confirmation page with the details you entered. You will then have the option of paying via Credit/Debit card (add to basket below). If you would rather send in a cheque or postal order then simply close the payment screen. Your order notification will come to us automatically, pending the arrival of your phone.

Step 3 - If you have a printer, we would recommend you print this confirmation off. If you like, you can also put a copy of the confirmation with your phone (we check the IMEI number of the phone with the order when it arrives). If you don't have the facility to print, then just write down the information we need onto a signed piece of paper (Your name, mobile model number and IMEI).

Step 4 - Send us your phone, the confirmation page (not essential) with any payment still due (you'll have the option to pay via Credit/Debit Card using Paypal upon ordering, or you can send in a Cheque or Postal Order made payable to Advanced Personal Computers Ltd), to:

Nokia Phone Upgrade Service
Advanced Personal Computers Ltd
5 Sunnyside
Hinckley
Leicestershire
LE10 1TE

Upon receiving your phone(s), we'll endeavour to get it upgraded and sent out the very same day!

How do I go about paying for this service?
When you go through the Order Form, you'll be asked if you want to pay via Credit or Debit Card using the secure online payment system of Paypal. If you are familiar with this service, you may even have an account with them but you don't need an account with Paypal to use this service from us.
We also accept Cheques, Postal Orders or even cash (sent at your own risk). All Cheques and Postal Orders must be made payable to Advanced Personal Computers Ltd. Place these types of payment into the same package as your phone. Click below to pay for this service via Credit/Debit card.

 

How do I pack the phone so it reaches you safely?

         Take your SIM card out as we don't require this for the upgrade. Keep it safe though as it's fragile and very small!

         If applicable, also take out any 'additional/extra' memory/storage cards as we don't require this either. Again, keep this safe.

         Ideally we would need the phone battery fully charged but this isn't necessary. Either way, we do need the battery though.

         Put the phone & battery, order form (duly signed) and any postal payments (Cheques etc) into a padded envelope; Jiffy bags or equivalent are ideal for this!

         Seal it all up and post off to us at the address above. It is recommended that you use a Recorded Service for posting as this will ensure we receive it safely and securely.

Can I rely on Advanced Personal Computers Ltd to look after my phone?
Being a fully UK VAT registered Ltd company, we have UK Legislation procedures and guidelines to adhere to. We are a fully insured to carry out this type of work and we are a company dedicated to providing services to a very high standard. Should you have any questions regarding this service, please call our Customer Services number on 0870 24 18 247 or, during busy periods, why not email us by clicking HERE.
