Nokia 6303i classic - software update issues

[ Edited ]

I upgraded the software for Nokia 6303i classic from V 06.61 to V 07.10. It was a mess after that. All my phone settings, contacts, messages, calendar entries, logs, everything were wiped off just like that. Either I did not notice this warning or nokia itself has missed out to highlight that this will happen.

Anyways, my major concern now is that I have lost the default applications and games that came along with it (sudoko, calculater, etc). I have tried to install it from many sites but it does not suit even though it is listed for this model. (via nokia PC suite)

Does any one know how to fix this? I desperately need atleast the calculator which came along with the phone. I have tried to reset it to factory settings – ALL – but nothing helped.

The clock will always show right in the middle left of the screen and you cant put it up right on top I guess.

Hi,

I have the exact same problem. Like you the phone was wrapped of settings and data, and more importantly several Apps, include the Calc.  Not a good user experience. I too need the Calc app at least.  Any help out there?

Re: Nokia 6303i classic - software update issues

Unfortunately NO :smileysad: The clock is still gigantic and there is no windows live application..

But they have included a Facebook application.. for windows live u can download the application form the Ovi store.. I heard it is readily available.. Just type in "windows live" in the search and you should be able to get it.. :smileyhappy:

Re: Nokia 6303i classic - software update issues

The size of the update is about 40 to 50 MB (approx.)
I dunno about the ovi suite update, but the nokia s/w updater first downloads the entire update and then commences updation so even if ur net fails your phone will not be affected..

Re: Nokia 6303i classic - software update issues

What's interesting is that this phone is marketed as supporting Windows Live Messenger and I bought it on the strength of that, however when I go to the IM section, the only option I have is Ovi Chat - which I don't wish to use. Nokia, we need a solution here otherwise I want a full refund on my phone because you've mis-sold me the product.

Re: Nokia 6303i classic - software update issues

Hi!  I know I'm replying to an old post, but I've just had the same problem - losing all my settings etc after an update.  There was a clear warning about backing up and I thought I had done that through synchronising.  I can't seem to recover the stuff that was loaded onto the phone when I bought it and the update version you mentioned has been overtaken by later ones and I can't go back to it.  Have you or anyone else got a solution, please.

 

Thanks
