Cell phone devices have a number of sophisticated features like MP3 players, cameras, and Web browsers, to mention only a few. To provide all these features, developers have to make complex firmware, which may require upgrades every now and then. By keeping your Samsung D900i firmware upgraded, you can improve the phone's performance and fix bugs and errors that the phone might have from the earlier firmware.

  1. 1

    Download Samsung PC Studio from Samsung's website (see link in Resources). Samsung PC Studio is the desktop managing software for Samsung phones. Go to Global Downloads page, select "Mobile Phone" in the first category and "GSM(2G)" in the subcategory drop-down menu. Select "SGH-D900I" as the model code, and the available downloads, including Samsung PC Studio, will be listed on the page. Also, download the latest firmware for D900i from the same download list. If there is no available firmware upgrade, then your firmware is up-to-date.

  2. 2

    Double-click Samsung PC Studio installer on your PC, and follow the onscreen instructions to complete set-up.

  3. 3

    Connect your Samsung D900i to the computer via USB data cable.

  4. 4

    Launch Samsung PC Studio by going to "Start," then "All Programs," and choosing "Samsung PC Studio."

  5. 5

    Double-click the D900i software upgrade file that you downloaded along with PC Studio in Step 1. The file will open directly in the Samsung PC Studio application window.

  6. 6

    Click "Next" through each step until the upgrade is complete. At the last step, click "Finish."

  7. 7

    Disconnect the USB data cable after your Samsung PC Studio notifies you to do so. If you disconnect the cable before the data transfer is finished, you might end up damaging the phone software permanently.
