You don't have to remove memory card. Always take a backup of your contacts and settings before upgrading.

Just make sure that you never downgrade your phone with a firmware that is older than what you already have. Doing so will brick your phone and you will not be able to revive it by flashing (Nokia care guys got hardware flashing tools as well and they can revive a bricked phone).

For flashing you can leave the sim inside the phone itself and select offline mode or switch-off phone in case of flashing with CFW.
I don't quite remember the procedure for upgrading through NSU. Last time I did that was more than 1 1/2 years ago. Anyways remove the sim, you don't really want to get interrupted by a call or an annoying msg.

Its got the looks, the sounds (with stereo speakers), the hardware and everything. Although, keep in mind that it doesn't have 3g. Good luck!
[deleted post]Oh yes i will. Now, did you just try to teach me manners. Sorry if i intrigued you, but do you believe that i enjoy posting the same things again and again. I too don't like to write an 'essay', but let me try to talk a little common sense to you. Unlike a troll, i use a genuine name to post comments. If you really like to debate then use a name and face us with a little dignity. If your post was written by either sidewinder or utk, i swear i would stop replying to comments. Besides, people who ask questions don't stay here much longer. Only those who reply, stays. Know why, cause we know to help, instead of using the back seat to enjoy the show. So, when a new person comes here and asks a question, we have no choice but to explain elaborately. I am not running a class where the students stay for the whole year and hence once a chapter is finished, there is no repeating of lessons. In forums, people come and disappear. But if one uses a genuine id then at least i won't repeat the same advice to him or her. Your accusation would have hold ground if i replied to the same person with the same repeated posts.
Now, how did you like my new 'essay'. Come on! Hit me.

You just have to go through few flashing guides and follow the given step by step procedures. Even if you screw-up you will still be able to revive your phone on your own by flashing it again. Or you can take it to nokia care(just don't tell them that you tried to flash your phone with a CFW ;-) ) and they'll get your phone up and running in no time and that too for free.
I'm sure making a trip to Nokia care is a lot easier than sending your phone to someone sitting hundreds or thousands of kilometers away.
And if you need any help regarding flashing then we(sb and side included) are always ready to help you out.
Learning to flash is always a good thing. Today Revenge^6 is probably the best CFW available for this phone. 2mrw it could be another one and if you don't know how to flash then you won't be able to upgrade your phone to another CFW say Revenge^7(when it releases) based on latest firmware.
phone luver , 30 Oct 2010hey.. its not that nokia is d the best ...i had nokia touch mob but there r lots of prob it ha... moreIt's your ignorance that's making you talk like this. The hanging and restarting problems are software related(corrupted firmware or crappy firmware). The issue can be rectified(in most cases for S60 devices) by flashing or upgrading to a newer firmware.
raj, 30 Oct 2010utk,suppose during upgrading to newer version nokia updater is somethng unwanted happns,i mean... moreAlready answered by sb.
Yeah.. if at all anything does happen... you(nokia care guys in this case) will be able to flash it back to working condition. Nokia care will do it for free as your phone is still under warranty.
I have flashed Nokia phones(S40, S60V3 & Symbian^1) more than 50 times and not even once have I ever faced a problem(dead phone). But my friend did got a dead phone while updating through NSU once and I had to flash it for him.
