How can I update my smartphone software to the latest version?

The software of the smartphone can be updated to fix specific issues, update applications or to update the used version of Android. Running the latest software will allow you to get the best from your smartphone.
During the update process, all data stored on your smartphone will be overwritten. This means all information, such as contacts, email and appointments, as well as software you installed yourself will be erased.
Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all data before starting the update process.
To update to the latest software, you need the USB cable that shipped with your Acer smartphone and a free USB port on a computer that meets the following requirements:
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP 32-bit, with Service Pack 2 installed or newer, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Software: Microsoft.NET framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 or newer.
