I got one of the first Sanyo 7400 and i was talking to a friend about it how it misses a few calls and sends them straight to answer phone even when i have full reception. He mentioned that there is a software upgrade for it since the release of the 1st batch.

Can anyone confirm this, I talked to a standard call center person and they had no idea and didn't refer me to anyone that did know so since everyone here knows whats what i thought i'd ask. Its quite annoying sitting there getting a voice mail message when the phone didnt even ring.

Quite a few of us have the phone in our office and all get the same problem. Would be good to get it solved as its a great phone.

Yes there is a firmware upgrade, mine is on its way now. My phone would say signal lost call failed. But not to worry it will soon be sorted. Other than that great phone.

Take it in to your nearest telecom shop, or if your in auckland take it to Mobile Fone Repair with your recipt and say that it is dropping calls and needs the firmware upgrade

The software fixes a issue where the handset lost contact with the network , and calls where missed.
