Hi, everyone, I keep seeing the references to the v.1.3 and v.1.4 of the Focus and how it impacts certain updates. How can I check to see which version I have?

first things first. WELCOME :D hehe


I used this(got it from XDA):

In Diagnosis (##634# in Dialer), enter *#32489#
press Back button on the screen 4 times (lower right)
until you see:
1. debug screen
2. version information
3.....
here, type 2 (version information)
after, select 2 (HW VERSION)
after, select 1 (READ HW VERSION)

If you take the back off and remove the battery between the sku and serial number lines to the right side of the sticker it will say either rev 1.3 or 1.4.

Thanks to both of you! I actually tried both ways and discovered mine was Rev 1.3 (whew!?). With as many times as I've swapped the SIM out of this guy, I'm glad Microsoft is jus being careful in their warnings.

I hadn't seen a Microsoft recommendation, but FWIW, I have 2 extra batteries and regularly swap them out. Then again, I also use a 32gb card. I suppose I'll pay one day -maybe with Mango. ;)

well they say to never battery pull , but ive done it .. and everyone else does it ....

i dont think it can kill the phone .. they probly say not to do battery pulls cause IF the phone freezes the power button always works :)

Dangit! I have v1.4!

But my wife's phone as 1.3 so at least I'll get to check it out for the next month or so until I can update my phone.

Sorry about M4arc! Dont even think of swapping phones with her unless she does it on her own w no help (whining) from you. My wife has an iphone so I dont have to worry about that!
