My friend's SGS doesn't have the update option in the Service Menu that my XPlay does? How does she update it? I think it's Vodafone branded.

she may have to use kies, and even then, she may not be able to update until vodafone release it after checking it out.

Why dont the Sony Ericsson people do such good things... They seem to remove support from their headsets quite early, like what happened with Satio and X10 n X8....
