I've just seen that Vodafone.de have released an updated firmware for the Torch. Will UK Voda be following suit? (it hopefully will fix my battery problem) The released firmware is version 126.96.36.1996 (Release 2475 / Platform 188.8.131.52).

The band is set by the phone itself, Any Torch firmware will work as long as you remove the Vendor.XML file.
I am running a firmware for the the US .534 I think off the top of my head (Gave up waiting for Voda to sort their act out).

As yet, I don't have any information concerning a firmware update for the Blackberry Torch. The latest approved version can be obtained directly from Blackberry on their Software Update Page.
If you haven't read it already, you may find the information on our FAQ section for Firmware.
When a new firmware is available, it will be announced via the normal eForum channels once approved.

just finished updating to .546 from VODAFONE de. So far it is good.
I just wish UK voda would pull their collective finger out and do something!!!
Agreed Adamcarts .246 is really appauling when compared to .546 I have no idea why voda are dragging their heels.

no need to delete vendor.xml anymore if you have a recent desktop manager. Just download the firmware & install to your hard disk, then connect your torch and fire up desktop manager. It will notice that there's a new firmware on your PC and offer to upgrade your torch for you. Takes about 30 mins.
In general if you want to know new stuff about your torch, you are much better off browsing Crackberry than here.

I upgraded to the approved firmware.
Now when i switch on I havew to reject Vodafone's startup programmes.
Battery seems to have improved, but although it has worked fine around home, i went into Central London today and it went bananas.
I could not get anything from the internet. I even had 3G displayed at the same time the browser said i had no connection. Several times the phone went into SOS mode.
Pulling the battery woke things up temporarily, butI am seripusly unhappy. I had my phone over 6 months and it is worse now then than when I first got it.
