Default Install drivers

Hi

I am pulling my hair out, and have been sat at this computer for hours and not got an answer.

I am trying to upgrade my Galaxy's firmware from 2.1 to 2.2. I am on Orange and in the UK.
The Orange website directs me to the Kies website.
I have updated Kies, i know 2.2 is released in UK, it is 29th Jan 2011 and it still says.

THIS VERSION OF THE DEVICE CANNOT BE UPDATED.
Current firmware version: PDA:JF3/PHONE:JF3/CSC:JE5

I have seen similar quiries but have not found an answer, more being 2.2 hasnt been released for Galaxy, but they were dated back in October.

I have gone into Kies / Tools / install drivers (does this do anything?)

If Orange have locked my phone- why do that? If so how do i unlock it to get the upgrade.
Can i phone them to unlock it?

Sorry if this has been asked a million times, but as i said, cant find an answer.


Thank you in advance

Craig

If you can already connect your phone to your computer and kies can detect it then it means all the necessary drivers are already installed.

As for updates, it's really your carriers call when and if theres going to be an update. So it's best to try and get a heads-up from them.

You have a locked phone because you signed a contract with them.

You bought the phone at a highly discounted price but no fear.

You can unlock it follow these instructions.

If you are stuck please ask questions.

Peace.
