Refurbished mobile phones are supposed to be restored to "near new" condition, meaning that the company may have updated the handset to the latest firmware version, replaced any broken or worn parts, and repaired any faulty components.
In late 2008, Sony issued a firmware update for the PSP that allowed the handheld to connect directly to the PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store, effectively bypassing the need to use the PS3 as an intermediary.
Upon the initial release of the Nintendo DSi, creators were pleased to note that all known flash carts such as the R4DS, AceKart2, FCart and NCart were unable to penetrate the DSi firmware.
Bringing an iPhone 3G up to speed with the iPhone 3.0 firmware will certainly help, but the iPhone 3GS does bring some new hardware in there as well, as mentioned in the previous section.
You can then bring your phone into a local dealer for them to update the software or, if they allow you, the new firmware can be pushed to you as a wireless download for free.
While a software or firmware update may be released at some point in the future, it seems that the PS3 Slim cannot play legacy PS2 game discs out of the box.
If you are having trouble with playing PlayStation 2 games, one of the best things you can do is to check if you have the latest version of the PS3 firmware.
Make sure that you have the firmware 2.0 update, because without it, you won't be able to utilize themes to customize your PS3 and possibly create your own.
One of the more notable features of the new firmware was the ability to tag songs heard on the FM radio for later purchase through the Zune Marketplace.
The outward appearance of the third generation Zune products was identical to the preceding iteration, but the new devices were given updated firmware.
