The update must be close to release, surely Vodafone should know that
Huawei have already announce an Offciial General version of ICS, vodafone have yet to release their version
Wouldnt it be a surprise to find out the vodafone are actually going to release JB instead of ICS.

Are other networks this slow at releasing software updates? I remember how long I had to wait for Voda to release updated software for my N97. By the time they released it there was already a new general update released.
Also when I bought the phone, the brochure said it actually had ICS installed on it, so I was surprised when I got home to find out it didn't have this version of Android on it. Bit cheeky. Also the girl helping me didn't really have a clue, so I didn't bother asking her anything even remotely technical. When I asked her the difference between 2 models she just said "oh, they look a bit different", lol. Anyway, I guess when they were designing the brochure they expected the software to be available by then.

Unfortunately as mentioned we are unable to comment on anything regarding firmware testing or releases.
This "We are unable to comment on firmware updates" nonsense has gone on long enough !!
Too many g300 customers have been lied to (Including my self - I was told the ICS update was available for immediate download when I purchased my g300 on 01/06/2012), misled or at the very least patronised throught this sorry saga.
Stop giving us these nonsense statements and get your product manager and director of customer services to address this forum NOW !!

Woohoo an official upgrade!
Has anyone taken the plunge and tested out whether it is better than the tried, tested and failed buggy version that was withdrawn by Huaweii earlier?

I'm trying to see what it does,
"You can also perform this update manually. This can be done as follows:
Go to Settings > About Phone > Online upgrade > Firmware upgrade
This will prompt you to download the firmware upgrade to your device in the download manager."
unfortunately only "No updates are available." appears on the screen

Thanks Craig. Have you had any incoming calls yet? Is caller ID ok?
Also, if you install chrome and go to chrome://gpu-internals is canvas still software rendered?

Woo hoo .... amazing that no-one knows anything but it suddenly appears !
Can anyone confirm the back up utility works and I def wont lose any data ? Sounds like a daft question but I REALLY dont want to lose my contacts ! I think a back up of address book and copy to my PC will be in order before I do anything.
