    Are you still struggling to update? I had some problems at first, but a reboot of both phone & PC did the trick.

    One of the problems I encountered was that one of the components didn't install properly when I first connected the phone to the PC via USB. Can't remember which one, but the PC Companion just refused to recognise the handset.

    Again, after the dual reboot, everything went swimmingly, although I did also update PC Companion to the latest version (seriously, who uses that thing other than for updates?).

    Thanks for your reply. I managed to update eventually as it seems to be a problem with my laptop USB ports.
    Used my daughter's laptop and it worked first time.

    When you were unlocking, I think it's made clear that you cannot use PC Companion or SEUS to update your phone unless you re-lock it.
