    ^^ If your phone is under warranty, it'll be done for free. If its not under warranty, they'll charge you around 200 bucks and will take around 2 days to make the update.
    Software update can bring many changes. Some big some small. But you can be sure of expecting improvements in your phone.

    ^^ Yeah maybe. I've seen regular shops taking 1-2 days. Nokia care might be doing it a lot faster.

    ^^ You should follow the instructions that your software updater gives you. Make sure you have a good net connection and that the phone's battery is fully charged. And yes, all the data in phone memory will be permanently lost. So backup your phone memory to your memory card before updating.
