According to the past experience,the upgrade will start from country by country and it may take months when it reaches your phone.So if you don’t want to wait,you definitely could flash the firmware by yourself.However,it will break your warranty and may cause some irreversible damage to the phone.So,the safest way is ‘wait’.

After months of testing and fixing,WordPress 3.2 comes officially.It’s said to make it faster and lighter.
Inside the new version,a refreshed dashboard design is created.I feel it is much clearer than the old one and loads faster as they declared.They also create a new official theme-new Twenty Eleven theme which is fully coded by HTML5 as they promised before that they would design a new theme every year.
The best part in this latest WordPress is the freshest full screen editor.
It’s left nothing but my editing windows,they call it as distraction-free writing or zen mode.
More improvements and bug fixes in this build give users better experience.WordPress takes a 3-minutes video clip to show us how it could work fantastically.
After watching this,I bet you wanna upgrade your blog platform to this awesome one.
Oh,they also said that more good stuff will be available in next batch,WordPress 3.3.You’ll stay tuned,won’t you?
In the past several weeks,quite a number of U Mobile users complained about the slow speed of network.Some people said that the ISPs in Malaysia always did like that-good at the beginning and turning to be worse and worse till the end.
Well,U Mobile is approving that they are not like that.The speed in many areas has been improving dramatically and even better than before.Therefore,I guess the service downgrade was because of the upgrade work doing during that period.
According to my recent tests,I could get more than 2-3Mbps(more than 4Mbps at midnight) for download and 1.5Mbps for upload when I was travelling along old Klang road;at the same time,I tested the speed on DiGi network and only got 500Kbps for download and 120Kbps for upload.
As a new mobile service company,they’re doing great.Of course,they also have a long way to go,such as expanding 3G service area,enhancing their customer service quality and support special code message etc.I’ll be keeping eyes on them.
