Hopefully the admins will make this sticky at some point. If you have an E61 it will have a code underneath the IMEI number, under the battery. This code is specific to the country/language and airtime provider. It is usually this code that decides whether you get a particular software update or not and which one you get. The BIG problem here is grey market imports. Some unauthorised resellers will get models destined for one market, say Malaysia, reflash them with UK firmware and the sell them in the UK. This is fine until you run an NSU update and your phone gets flashed based on its CODE back to Malaysian. <quote from nokia forums> when Nokia manufactures a device, their systems make a note of what language or operator version of phone software (firmware) was put on the device. Then, when NSU or an official Nokia service center updates the device, the latest version of that firmware will be delivered (otherwise the device might get wrong software, and in the worst situations it might not even work). Now, if someone (usually an unofficial, often illegal "grey market" importer/reseller) gets devices intended for another market, and (illegally) also replaces the firmware with another version intended for that other market, the buyer ends up with a device that has the language they may want, but it isn''t what that particular device should have. When such a device user updates the firmware using NSU, what gets delivered is not the language version the device has now, but what was put on it originally when it was manufactured. </quote from nokia forums> I have been trying to compile list of these codes for some time and I have a fair amount of info now mostly taken from this thread (http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1061235) at the HowardForums and this one (http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=swupdate&message.id=762) at the Nokia Support forum.
