The message and software update are a load of tosh. It just turns on out of the blue with no word or warning.

Gotta do some tests to see if it has improved in building signal in certain areas that were poor on 3G. Only thing I'm unsure of is the frequency they are using so far. I know they have 1800 and 800, with the latter hopefully being the saving grace for areas without 2G fallback as the standard 2100 for 3G just don't cut it in buildings a lot of the time.

Three store told me the same thing I just have to wait for my area. For some reason though I cannot pick up 4G in any other areas of Birmingham. She said I will get a message which will update everything

Apparently Hans many on EE network here had problems with calls on 4G. The handover process between 3G & 4G cells was poor & calls dropped or didn't connect at all. They were complained about on Watchdog tv show
