We have started rolling out a new software update for Nokia Asha 306 (RM-767 & RM-768): v.7.42. The update is available to most countries/regions via FOTA and Nokia Suite. Find the update instructions from here: www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/asha-
Key changes compared to previous 5.93 SW update include:
(1) available if phone is updated with Nokia Suite.
(2) available if phone is updated with Nokia Suite. Can be also manually downloaded from Nokia Store (http://store.nokia.com) after the update.
PS. if you update your device with Nokia Suite, make sure you install the latest Nokia Suite 3.8 client version first. You can download it from here: http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/
if you update your Asha 306 to 7.42 SW version with Nokia Suite, you will get a new Email application that does not support Push Email Notifications and Email Scheduling. FOTA update on the other hand would keep the old Email application. If Push Email Notification and Email Polling are important features for you it is recommend to update the phone SW via FOTA.
If Push Email Notification and Email Scheduling are not important features for you, the phone SW update can safely be installed using Nokia Suite. With this new version of the Email application you can get Self-Updates when Nokia releases a newer version.

the update should be now available also via FOTA for most countries/regions.
This has happened with my Nokia Asha 306. It had version 3.81 and it was playing this video very well but after I have had updated it to version 7..42, that very same video is not played properly. Its video is not visible with the message that the video is of higher resolution. But then how does that video was being played in version 3.81 correctly?
My product code is:
059L900: RM-767 MEA_MAA_RED_NULL_PK
SW version: 07.42 variant: 33
I hope that support people would convey this to developers so that in the next version this is resolved.
I tried attaching that video that I was able to play in Nokia Asha 306, SW version 3.81, but could not.
This information is what I get from GOM player when I play this file:
[Ver. 2, 1, 50, 5145(EN)]
*** DIRECTSHOW FILTER LIST ***
1. Default DirectSound Device
2. VMR9 - Renderless mode
3. Gretech Video
4. Gretech Audio
5. Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder
6. Gretech MP4 Source
*** VIDEO INFO ***
Input Type : mp4v(GVC)
Input Size : 320 x 240
Output Type : YUY2
Output Size : 320 x 240
FrameRate(Frame/sec) : 0.00 (25.00)
*** AUDIO INFO ***
SampleRate(Sample/sec) : 44100
BitRate(Bit/sample) : 16
Channels : 2
KBitRate(KBit/sec) : 1411
So it is clear that the video is 320 x 240 and it was played correctly before ver 7.42.
We need that ability back that we had before this when we bought Nokia Asha 306.
(And also can we have the ability to copy and paste in Nokia Asha 306?)
this is a known issue with the new SW release and feedback about it has been passed forward. see: http://www.nokia.com/in-en/support/product/asha-30
