Re: pc suite and N8

Sonu2010, nice to see someone from Nokia actually saying something here. I wish I could go to lunch with one of you guys. Off the record, I'd expect to hear that someone in a position of authority won't allow anyone at Nokia to say anything about PC Suite. Add me to the list of people who want PC Suite, but thanks to these discussions, I've found a work-around.

I'm thoroughly puzzled why a company that can produce as beautiful and functional phone as the N8 would insist on having the purchaser use software that looks like it was written for teenagers or iphone users. Oh well, I don't want to repeat what everyone else has said, but at least we all know now that "someone" from Nokia is aware of these discussions. Thanks!

Re: pc suite and N8

I have the C7 (S3, should be same as N8) and PC Suite 7.1.18.0 on my admin locked work laptop with Lotus Notes.  I can transfer files & pictures but whem I try to Sync I get the message "connected phone is not supported by PC Sync.".  I downloaded PC Suite 7.1.30.9 on my home computer & get the same message.  Anybody know why?  I got the phone because I thought the older version of PC Suite would work and from what I read here it works for most of you.

 

For work I really need my calendar & contacts to be up to date.

 

The workaround I am using is I kept my old Nokia 6233 and even without the sim card I can sync using PC Suite.  Then I sync the 6233 with the C7 using the phone switch app.  It is an extra step but only takes a few seconds after the first sync.  I would prefer not to have to do this step though :-(

Re: pc suite and N8

Hi podhalanski,

 

 

Please be advised that the supported software for Nokia N8 is Nokia Ovi Suite.

 

You may refer on the link below to check for the compatibility:

Re: pc suite and N8

Hi Sisa  - and Nokia-team,

 

 

can you tell me some more?

 

  1. PC with Win7; 32 oder 64 Bit?
  2. Outlook 2010?
  3. What items do you sync?
  4. Where can I get 7.1.62.1? (I tried 1.60. befor but that one didn´t  "support N8".
  5. Is there a change-log to see the advantage from .40 to .62?

Re: pc suite and N8

ovi suite is garbage, i hate the fact that I can't use PC Suite with my N8.

 

In PC Suite you can access your calendar and can manage your messages, you can't do any of these in ovi, there isn't even a calendar in ovi yet it stupidly has the option to sync it, laughable.

Re: pc suite and N8

Well, I hate OVI Suite too as I had big issues by the past...
But I had to use it to upgrade the Anna new software (Anna 1/2 & Anna 2/2).
You know what happened after the update ? I had many contacts in duplicate and same for music albums...
I never asked for a synchro !

Nokia OVI Suite is a big sh...
I tried PC suite 7.1.62.1, it works perfectly in a good way.
