Aparently new phones are coming with a new firmware these days... My phone is AG28, reports of the new firmware are AH31. This firmware reportededly fixes: It is reported that the new firmware does NOT allow apps in landscape mode, however you can use the hinge bending trick, or the better (and recommended) quick close-reopen trick to access apps in landscape mode.

Reports are that you can send your phone in to get it flashed with the new firmware, turnaround time 3-5 weeks. .

Are you going to get an Alias 2? I really want to put Opera Mini on it and have failed miserably so far. I've tried to use the Opera for the A900 as you did with the Sch-u740 but it won't download to my phone. Thanks.

Hi, I just bought a u740 and the double flip landscape trick DOESN'T WORK?! I can get it flip to the Downloads menu in landscape but it only lets me access the embedded applications: - Get New Embedded - Bell Mobile Email - GPS Nav - Media Player - Music Store Nothing else. I have gmail and eBuddy apps on my phone but they don't appear when in landscape mode. Any ideas? Love your site BTW E

So only way to get new firmware is to send it in? takes 3-5 weeks? O_O what will I do with no phone that time? Is there another way?

Ok guys. I just got the new firmware put onto my phone and So far the french characters are GONE! And the hinge bending trick works and there is still bars on the sides of pictures in landscape mode if thats what ((Full screen media display in landscape mode (gets rid of the side-bars))) means. And ##786# still works and everything is working the same besides the above.
