Re: OVI PC Suite

ovi suite 2.1 does not support the N900.. you will need to use pc suite or wait until ovi suite 2.2 is released

Re: OVI PC Suite

Hi all,


Nokia OVI Suite 2.2 is now available. N900 also supported now excluding Messaging and MMC content. Support for those will be added to later OVI Suite versions.

I STILL DO NOT RECOMEND USING OVI SUITE IF YOU PLAN ON SYNCING ANYTHING.

 

there are very few people that are using the n900 that get it to work quasi-good at all.

 

 

here is the link so that you can try it.

 

i hope it works for you.

if you are going to sync any of your data like calendar, contacts, notes, then i would suggest making a duplicate copy of your .pst file if it is in outlook and be ready to just swap it back after you try to sync.

 

ovi suite makes a mess of those things, in MOST cases.  not ALL.

 

good luck.

Re: OVI PC Suite

I'm just wondering if this is something that Nokia is aware of. As they half heartedly faced out PC Suite it leaves there customers confused. 

 

I posted a question at nokia support so let's see what answer they come up with.

Re: OVI PC Suite

Dear ceroberts75.

 

PC suite's Map Loader is not supported by Nokia any more. Please stop giving bad advise on these boards to innocent users. It makes these boards an unreliable source of information to Nokia customers. 

 

A Mobile Visionary should know better.

Re: OVI PC Suite

when it is not fully supported at all, then it will be buried into the bottomless abyss and no longer be available for download on thier site.

 

 

http://www.nokiausa.com/get-support-and-software/software/nokia-pc-suites/compatibility-and-download#

 

for not being supported, it sure is easy to download from NOKIA's site!

 

 

not supported...or not promoted, is a big difference.   of coarse, if nokia actually did support any of thier products the way they are needed to, users would not come here or to some other sites to get answers that NONE of the nokia employees know about, until you get to executive resolutions.

 

 

comments and friendly rallies are always good, but slander is pants, especially without background to back it up.

 

 

personally, i am the first to admit if i was wrong and have no problem doing it publicly, but in this case, the support that we give freely, if it didnt work, would not have been said, or the blog would be updated by anything that i have said to pertain to what is working now.

 

this is why i started the new thread that you can find on your own about the new version of ovi suite the day it came out....but to the dismay of n900 ussers...it is still unstable.

they are clueless.

 

i have brought it up to them on  many occasions in person.  even showed them....i got the..."oh, wow, we never noticed that" response.  "thanks for showing us, we will have to work on it"

 

 

i asked if they actually used n900's to test it with...just got a shoulder shrug.

 

 

good luck getting anyone to respond with more then a canned response that really knows and uses it.

How is any of that bad advice?

 

PC Suite was the only alternative back then, before Ovi Suite 2.2 (with N900 support) was released.. Since Ovi Suite 2.2 was released, I've only recommend Ovi Suite..and that goes for Map syncing/uploading too!

Re: OVI PC Suite

yo king, u got to remember something, ceroberts75 and cpitchford are the 2 highest ranked users in this part of the forums, so trust me they didn't get there by giving bad advices .

pc suite works good with basic usage (backing up restoring....) so does ovi suite, but they are horrible when it comes to syncing contatcs\calendar.... they often mess things up, and map loader works with the n900, very buggy but works, and the map loader that comes with ovi suite supports the n900 just well (i just installed the lebanese maps, wasn't buggy at all).

now my question is, any changes with the latest ovi suite to the n900 ??? i mean if i got a phone call or a text, will i be able to see them on my dekstop's/laptop's screen ?? and answer a call or reply a message from there???

Reality is wrong....dreams are for real... 2pac .
