No WM6 upgrade for Samsung i600 in the UK?

If like me, you are a Samsung i600 owner, chances are you have been keeping an eye on the Samsung website for your free Windows Mobile 6 ROM upgrade.

You’ll probably know that the ROM upgrades are being released one country/region at a time (starting with the Russian and Dutch ROMS) any futher updates have been released over the past few weeks. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the update for the UK.

Well there could be bad news there. If you were to take a look at the Samsung i600 update page today you’ll find that some country flags have been removed! Now missing from the list are UK, Germany, Greece and Czech.

So does this mean no update for us?? Well I spoke to our PR contact at Samsung and have been told that these countries will “Definitely receive a Windows Mobile 6 update” and that the download site is just undergoing a few “Changes”. Fingers crossed then!

For those of you that simply cant wait until the official ROM version there is a work around which involves changing your locale, performing the update and then changing the locale back. You find a full how-to guide here.
