    For a very long period, I was so pissed off with my N8. I knew it was just the software, but Vodacom didn't release any better working updates.
    Yesterday, Vodacom released the new Nokia Belle.
    Man, what a difference, what an improvement.
    Nokia Belle works for many other Nokia phones too.

    Try it, it's worth it.

    No man, Vodacom is not making software. If you buy a phone cash and without any contract (there is a special english word for it I think), then you will be able to update your software to the latest released Nokia software. If you but a contract phone/Vodacom phone, then the service provider has to release the software update. Otherwise you can not get the latest update. I have such Vodacom N8 it since the previous update, I had problems with almost everything. I met many people with the same problems. Nokia released many more updates which I could not install because of the above.

    Not so sure if I explained it right, maybe somebody can help me out here.

    Nokia Belle is so much better, more features, etc. than the previous rubbish software.

    I understand you, same thing I had with my old samsung omnia, and the same reason I got rid of it!

    IMO it BS that a service provider controls what firmware you have on your phone. All I can say (without trying to start the whole debate again) I love my Iphone!

    If I could get rid of my contract, I would go for the Iphone4. No doubt.
