    Default let me tell you about the day....

    This is kinda offtopic..

    last night i decided to update firmware to change the nokia n70 to n70 music edition(no hardware changes needed to be)

    Ok i was ready with all the programs..right
    Firstly my first mistake was that i dont know what the firmware size was...ok,now i dont know exactly how much data bundles i had left.I guessed

    Right now i am updating and the firmware i see that is loading on the phone is like 47.8 megs...but alas i only have 40 megs of data to use...What am i to do.

    right i am biting my nails and counting each meg as it goes on.

    during the the upgrade at 38megs a sms comes to the phone saying that there is x amount left on the bundle..I am really biting my nails now and the loading continues for the upgrade.

    Another sms comes and says now money is now being deducted.
    I think this sim had 12 rand on it,and that equals 6 megs in total

    As the firmware reaches 47.8 exactly,my internet bombs out...err...did i make it(no bundles no airtime left)

    then the second proces starts to update the phone(usually 15 mins)

    For that 15 minutes i was sweating so much ,as i dont know if i made it or broke the phone....

    WHat do you think happened..
    Did i make it and the phone rebooted with music edition software or
    Is the phone a total brick now

    I bought the phone second hand just to use it as a modem..(but itchy fingers is a beeech.

    what you guys and gals think

    Was i the most lucky son of a beech??????????????????????????????? or not

    Life is too nasty for you to have made it.

    hmm interesting one, ill play along

    I would think that the installation would have to 'close' and finish first which takes just a little longer.

    but on the grounds that you are asking us, i am going to say that the music edition software is on. and therefor you are a lucky ...

    but if an installation reaches its end visually and with all data stored in the temp folder, the dialup crashes a spit second later....????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????

    Don't keep us in suspense DBM, my digital refresh button is wearing down and I'm getting piles from sitting here waiting for you to put me out of my misery.
