According to the C5-00 Nokia support page (for my country) a firmware update 101.003 has been available since late August. However, it STILL is not being offered by Nokia Suite (nor the phone's Software Updates) - why?
The current firmware is 071.005, and as the update promises "improved performance" it is sorely needed (I'm hoping it will adress the battery draining issues that the phone has had from the start, it's battery duration has always been less than 1/6 of the promised duration - which is then compounded by accelerated battery deterioration since you have to be constantly recharging).
The reason being that availability depends on Product Code / Region..Also, for Network locked devices an approval is needed from the Operator...Hence, even if an update is released by Nokia, it need not be for your particular device.
Well, it's a free device not locked to any operator. Also, what do you mean by Product code/Region? It's a device bought in this country, so I don't see why the national product support page (Finland) would state an update has been released if it's not actually, well, available.
Hi there Eiledon,
The product code is located under the battery cover on your device, usually on a Nokia sticker. Even if your device is free, it may be a country variant. Nokia will release generic firmware to network providers or to your country's Nokia, and it is up to your country to approve the firmware and add country requirements / custom applications specific to your country. This is hence a country variant. Therefore that may be the reason the firmware update is not showing up for you. You could always contact your local Nokia Care point for more information, and they may possibly be able to help you further.
