New SW update available for Asha 205 and Asha 205 Dual SIM: v. 3.19

[ Edited ]

Hey,

 

we are rolling out a new SW update for Asha 205 (RM-863 & RM-864) and Asha 205 Dual SIM (RM-862):  v. 3.19. This is a minor update and for many user it might be actually the sales start software. However there is also small a portition of users with 3.18 SW version. This update is available to them.  

 

Key changes compared to previous 3.18 SW version:

 

* Fix for displaying contact name in phone calls and SMS inbox
* Performance and usability improvements
 

Note that this device model does have USB-connector, so updating it with Nokia Suite is not possible. The only end-user update method is via FOTA. Find the instructions from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/belle-asha-symbian-software-update/

 

Cheers!

the only update method for end-user on this device would be to update via FOTA (wirelessly over the air). Since the device also does not have WLAN, this would need to be done over mobile data connection. See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eg2Vf-4qqx8

I have tried to update my Asha 205 using the FOTA but it keeps telling me " Updating cancelled by server". What's the way forward?

Lochez2:

 

make sure your device time & date settings are correct - that could be one cause for this error message.
