Re: ovi store downloads

As this is a long standing issue that may be related to the Operator.. suggest you to go to the Nokia store site from your phone browser and then directly download from there...No need for the SMS. BTW the SMS contains only the link, that will take you to the Nokia store download..

Re: ovi store downloads

You only get the link sent as SMS. Sending the whole app by SMS is not practical (would also require sending hundreds, possibly thousands or tens of thousands of SMS messages in order to send the whole app, and there'd have to be extra logic to reassemble the installation file from the plentitude of SMSs, and if one is missing, it wouldn't work at all, and you'd need to request and resend the SMS with the missing bits, etc.)

 

When you open the link, the Ovi/Nokia Store client kicks in, and handles the download using a data connection (or Wi-Fi, depending on the phone).

 

When the download's been done, the application installer takes over, and may prompt you where to install the app (in some cases, the app may have been built so as not to ask the user at all).

Re: ovi store downloads

I mean there is NO sms being sent to the phone with a link for the game.

 I have tried several time with no joy.

So i have to use another phone that is wi fi. or incure a connection charge

Re: ovi store downloads

Even if you receive the SMS containing the link..when you click on the link it will need Data connection to download the application. You can't download if you do not have a Data plan.

BTW refer this thread and it may be possible to download the application thru' PC..

Re: ovi store downloads

Connect the phone to PC and open Nokia suite... Minimise  (do not exit) the Nokia Suite.. and go to the Nokia Store site on the PC.. Select the application you want and click DOWNLOAD. You should get the screen as seen in the Attachment.Click 'DOWNLOAD ON PC' and the application will get installed on the phone. Note that this doesn't work for ALL applications. You may not get the 'DOWNLOAD ON PC' tab active but Greyed out..

Right, the culprit is the ABE settings in the NoScript options. When it looks like in the attachment the (selected) applications can be downloaded on the PC and then installed.

Hope this helps others too.

Re: ovi store downloads

Is it thru' Phone you are not able to see or on your PC ? I can see many Applications / Games available for your Nokia 5230.

Re: ovi store downloads

N97 running PC Suite 7.1.62.1 under Firefox 3.6.25 connected with USB and Wifi

 

The displayed beta page comes up with the right-hand half greyed out, even though everything sees the phone fine. I don't get the SMS and finding the utility from the phone is a PITA.

 

This is a Beta product which evidently has problems, so is there any way to disconnect it so downloads are as normal, to PC and install from there?
