The UI has received minor tweaks in the positioning of AM and PM in several languages and some UI improvements related to the multiple functions of the Call key have been implemented.

Talking of other languages, there has been several text string amendments in German, Italian, Swedish and Norwegian.

It is now possible to manually adjust the time in automatic mode and v1.7 brings significant improvements in date and time format inconsistencies.

There have been Improvements on failed passcode entry. There is now a countdown display of available attempts remaining, before automatic full reset of the phone. If the phone has already been used since it was last switched on (i.e. the keypad is now locked), 10 attempts are possible before reset occurs; if the phone has been newly switched on, 30 attempts are possible.

Punkt point out that there are a few known issues not fixed in this update.

  • Alarm: when an alarm is sounding, pressing the Call key ends the alarm instead of activating the snooze feature.
  • Calling: the local time in some countries is displayed incorrectly when the country code is added.
  • Auto-lock: pressing the End key does not halt the keypad auto-lock process.
  • Text messages: email addresses received within text message cannot be saved within the Contact directory.
  • Punkt key: after certain text input, pressing the Punkt. key enters a new line instead of displaying the contextual menu (similar the Enter key on a keyboard). For consistency, we will be removing this. In the meantime, the contextual menu can be displayed by pressing the Punkt key twice
