I noticed that the firmware on my 6133 is out of date -- they're telling me v0.56 is available, and I'm currently running v0.53.

But I also noticed that I could have my phone flashed and unlocked at the same time over at Evan's place.

The firmware he's offering is v6.10 -- which seems likely to be fundamentally different than the v0.xx series.

So how do I know what is in what? Is there a description somewhere of the variations? Something like a software packages "What's in this release" Readme?

Nokia's support wiki forum doesn't seem to help, although it does state that the latest firmware for the 6133 is actually v5.60, which is maybe the same think as v0.56? So where does v6.10 come from? The only phones I saw with that number ...

You probably have 5.03, not .53. I would send it out to get unlocked, it's a great phone.

i bought my 6131 unlocked. I've updated it from the Nokia site. I have version 6.10 on it right now.

Flashing to the newest unbranded firmware (6.10) is a *MUST* for a 6133. The T-Mobile branded firmware cripples this great phone way too much. Enough to mention the horrible battery life with the T-Mo firmware. Not sure what they did with this phone, but the T-Mo guys should probably take coding classes somewhere. Frequent crashes also a plague with their firmware. Anyway, you get the idea. After I got my 6133 flashed to 6.10 I easily get several days of battery life with moderate use (I used to get maybe 1 day before!) and no crashes. Still using this phone as my primary. You get the idea.
