Sorry, not true. All (recent) S60 devices are firmware upgradable, backup 
before, flash new firmware, restore and all applications are available.
(Somehow they forget to save/restore the bluetooth pairing information, 
but everything works just fine)

Having to reinstall is a pain. Enabling blue pill mode for some packages. 
Resetting the root password after install of sshd. It is not cool to have 
to do every OS upgrade.
