    Okay, I’m planning to buy S5660 Gio, and I want (when I’ll have it) upgrade it to the latest version of firmware. I have some basic questions:
    1. Is there a fully functional English language?
    2. Can I update to this (2.3.6) from 2.2.1?

    I don’t know if these forums are still alive, please reply, Someone. Here, or here: vidmavidma@inbox.lt
