Re: nokia 500 symbian belle upgrade

i see, so that's gud, but i still don't understand why the symbian belle website didn'y include the nokia 500 as one of the compatible list.

Re: nokia 500 symbian belle upgrade

last question, will it run faster when updated to belle? since the nokia 500 doesn't have a 2D/3D accelerator or a GPU since most symbian^3/anna/belle have these specs?

Re: nokia 500 symbian belle upgrade

it will be faster but its a cheaper model so it does not have the same specs as other high end devices but its a great mid range phone for the money

Re: nokia 500 symbian belle upgrade

I bought my Nokia 500 on 6th Oct here in Mumbai, India. i would rate Symbian Anna a 5.5 on a scale of 10, compared to Blackberry, IOS, Android. Although my 500 does restart on its own, I guess the problem lies in the OS's memory management. Just last night it automatically notified me of an upgrade, which I promptly did from 10.029 to 10.031. Not anything apparent has changed, although I hope it solves the restarting. The restarting also happens only when you use memory intensive applications, like video, Camera etc. Otherwise it works sweetly, no regrets. Good value for money.

Waiting for a Belle upgrade.

You have a topic called: Nokia 500 problem
