Nokia 515 Questions to features

Dear All,

Yesterday arrived my Nokia 515 ( Single SIM).

It makes a good impression from the outside.

 

But there are some features i am missing currently. So maybe someone could help me finding out if the following is possible:

 

- Synchronizing with Outlook

I want to synchronize the calendar and contacts with my Outlook.

Recent version of Nokia Suite does not recognize the mobile.

And the older Nokia PC suite does recognize it with a certain USB driver, but does not support synchronizing it.

 

So does this mobile officially support syncing with Outlook?

 

- Whatsapp

I read in several articles in the internet that this mobile comes with Whatsapp. But it is not installed and I saw also no possibility to install it from Whatsapp.com.

Is this supported?

 

Especially the first point is very important for me and would be a reason to sent it back if not supported.

 

Thanks a lot for clarification,

 

Nashville

Nokia 515 (like all the new Nokia phones launched in 2013) no longer includes support for Nokia Suite. See this FAQ for instructions on syncing the contacts & calendar from Outlook: http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/product/301/faq/?action=singleTopic&topic=FA141748

 

WhatsApp is not currently available for Nokia 515. If you like, you could try dropping a question on the topic here: http://www.whatsapp.com/contact/

Re: Nokia 515 Questions to features

Well, that's disappointing since I don't want to sync my private calendar and contacts to the internet / into a cloud of Microsoft

 

But thanks anyway for your quick answer.

@Armagon:

 

Does not support WhatsApp as well? That's surprising considering that Nokia 515 is kinda a premium device. And as it also runs on the regular S40 (not the new Asha OS) it could've easily be made compatible with WhatsApp. So why not? :smileysurprised:

 

Nokia 515 Single SIM runs the same S406th FP1 as the Nokia 206. So I'm sure it will be able to run WhatsApp if jar and jad files are copied to the phone. NO?

Yes, it _might_ be unofficially possible to get the WhatsApp working on Nokia 515 due to the phone sharing essentially the SW platform version/form factor/screen resolution/orientation with few phone models which do have WhatsApp support, but it's not officially supported/tested. So if do so, there may be various glitches. WhatsApp would know the answer to the question on why the app is not "supported", it might be that they are e.g. waiting for the phone to start shipping in larger volumes first to have a big enough business case to prioritize it.

Does the old Nokia Suite 3.6.36 work for you?

Does the manual installation of WhatsApp work for you?

Re: Nokia 515 Questions to features

Hello Abi99,

Thanks a lot.

 

I already had done the workaround with Whatsapp and it works well.

 

And the Outlook syncing works now with the older version.

 

Great, so basically I now have everything I need.

 

Does anyone know if it is possible on the 515 to signal new messages / unanswered calls with a blinking light? (like on my old E52 where the keyboard flashed every couple of seconds)

Previous phones did lid the whole keyboard. That was hidden within Menu » Settings » Lights » Light effects » On. If you model does not have that, there were technical reasons not to include it.

WhatsApp had some issues over the weekend (broken links). Works again, at least here.

pwr09, same as your Nokia 301 – I tried. Both, Nokia 515 and Nokia 301, were finalised by QTL (Beijing).

Re: Nokia 515 Questions to features

Hi, new here. Got my 515 the other day and I have a double parallel lightning icon on top left of screen. I don't know what it is and whether I have enabled something by mistake. My service provider UK O2 say it is "Voice Clarity" but he was the third person to assist and the first two hadn't a clue. I'm wondering if he is right as when I restored to factory defaults it is still there.

Any ideas guys - please.

How can I remove the picture of a pine cone on the screen of my Nokia 515?  The picture annoys me.  Best regards, Peter
