Nokia 7710 Firmware:

Firmware is your phone's built-in software. Occasionally Nokia releases firmware updates for certain phone models.

When I bought my Nokia 7710 my firmware was 4.01 only, But now I have made it to be 4.10 and I tell you its looking great to use. Most of the softwareproblems are resolved and my mobile is working great than ever before. The majorproblem I faced was I lost all my data. I had to take backup of my mobile whichi dint care to do.

Before you are up to upgrade your Firmware I have a few things that you must note.

1) Hit *#0000# to find the firmware version.

[A new person will search for where to type these values. Very simple find
the telephone options from the menu and keep going that's it]

2) Take a complete backup of your mobile.

3) Thoroughly scan your data for virus

4) Note the ESN, ISN, Battery Identity [scratch the spot and note the numbers]

Virus scan is very very important because you may have it in your Nokia 7710 :-)

If you are running out of warranty rush to your nearest Nokia Service Center. If your warranty is expired then you must have to pay for your upgrades.

People find it uneasy to act faster. But its recommended that you go get done it faster as it can improve your performance of your mobile by much.

My sincere advice is to look after your mobile as your own wife. If you letit to someone and go away they will fuck it. There are every chances to changethe parts that you can never find it easier. So its advised that you remainwhere the process is going on and switch on and see whether all are working wellbefore you leave the service center.
