Re: Nokia 500 problem

I don't see the problem ending with belle update. With less than a week of me updating to belle, my Nokia 500 has crashed 3 times while using various apps (using internet) and once it had restarted without even using the phone and the sound of restarting made me to notice it. More over the Wifi is not at all working after the update whereas the same is working for others in my office. I had do every kind of setting change to check wifi work and had hard resetted thrice with losing all data every time and have not found a solution for making the wifi work. That's disgusting and am disappointed by waiting & updating to belle.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

After hectic troubles, the physical keys hard reset and Belle reinstall solved the wifi problem. But while writing this,my mobile crashed, so the restart problem still exists.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

The following from my first post

 

29th March 2012 I had the phone back from being repaired. The phone worked up until 2nd April 2012.

 

2nd April 2012 Phone locked when changing the internet radio station and the phone also kept cutting the wifi connection whlist listening to WYMG classic rock from Springfield USA. My router box is "g" connection but computer can connect to it from my garden and shed come study.

 

5th April 2012 phone cut-out whilest using the mp3 player. Phone not responding to the menu button being pressed. Phone had to be reset. Phone back for repair. I also noticed since the nokia 500 software update that under the software update the phone wanted a restart for social and and something called lotus traveller.
