Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

[ Edited ]

 

The latest software update has been released bringing a number of enhancements to the device. Headlining the list of its new capabilities is the arrival of free, voice-guided, turn-by-turn drive navigation and an upgrade to the latest maps data – version 14.

 

Software update sw13.10 also contains several other improvements for owners of the Nokia 6700. The camera software has been somewhat improved, with one-step autofocus and the automatic rotation of the menu text to portrait or landscape mode as required. Bluetooth audio connections are more robust and reliable. To make the most of the improved navigation options, the menus have also been tweaked to allow faster access to the application. Overall stability has also been improved.

Updated mine using Ovi Suite without any problems.

 

Messaging:

- e-mail has now multiple accounts:

   1. Ovi by Nokia

   2. Yahoo! Mail

   3. Windows Live Hotmail

   4. Gmal

   5. Other

 

Will let you know other improvements as I go along testing them.

 

NOTE: You must back-up your phone before updating as all the data on the phone will be wiped out.

Re: Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

Same happened to me about halfway through installation - tried to reconnect several times. Phone was in test mode - so I disconnected it, removed battery so I could turn it off and on again and lo and behold - it was updated anyway! I'm hoping it did it properly - seems okay at the moment and I'm hoping it will stop the phone from freezing during conversations!

V13.10 has a bug whereby the camera goes on even when the keypad is locked if the camera button is pressed!

I was having a similar issue under Windows XP.  The solution that solved my problem was updating to 13.10 using the Nokia Software Updater version 3.0.72 (not through Ovi). No drama and full functionality since. Good.

Hi,

After update 6700 FW from 10.6 to 13.10, i don't find windows live and ovi contacts anymore in APPS, or in Messaging Menu. Why removed?

Re: Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

Unfortunately (and it took me a while to work this out) they have moved Windows Live Messenger in to be a part of Nokia Messaging (under Menu - Messaging - IM's) however, I had to do a full factory reset AFTER the firmware upgrade before I was able to see this; prior to doing the reset I could only see Ovi by Nokia as an IM service.

Re: Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

This software release is **bleep**. Still the bluetooth issues remain. My phone refuses to switch on the bluetooth function and they removed windows live messenger for some ovi junk. Seriously who the hell will use ovi, when there are millions who use windows live?

 

Havent owned a Nokia for many years. Thought id try this phone out, but the functionality is very limited compared to what other brands are offering. Simple things like volume adjustment for the alarm, ability to navigate through messages without having to close each individual message then scroll to and open the desired one. Being able to switch between functions, messages, web, user list, email .etc.

 

The updating software is useless too. You can obtain updates by using a different method, requires a little more knowledge but i cannot say on here. Just google it and you'll find the software which most people use. With my samsung and sony ericsson phones neither required a software update. Worked just fine. The last nokia i buy.

You have probably the firmware from your provider. You receive the updates later.

With 3rd party software you can update yout phone, for own risk. Search google :smileyhappy:

 

Is any stuff-Person here from Nokia? What is with windows live app in FW 13.10????? There is only ovi preinstalled on the phone :smileyfrustrated:

It is not available in the US either. I have been trying all morning to get that update unsuccessfully (from pc suite, ovi, the handheld itself) All return an up to date message. I can only assume the release is limited or something is not right (my device is unlocked-the device was never made available to the USA; so i dont see how it will be an issue with my provide-actually tried 2 different providers to see if it makes a difference)

Re: Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

Not available in Europe, not available in US, I wonder where is it available then? Is it possible to find firmware download and install it from PC?

Just keep 7.90 !

 

 

Op 8 juli heb ik na een melding van mijn PC Suite de firmware van Nokia 6700 Classic ge-upgraded van versie 7.90 naar 10.50. Bij de upgrade zijn een aantal belangrijke functies uit firmware versie 7.90 verdwenen of zodanig veranderd dat de telefoon niet meer goed bruikbaar is.

            Het betreft op hoofdpunten:

- Headers van mail berichten zijn niet meer off-line beschikbaar;

- Inkomende mail wordt niet meer (gratis) gesignaleerd. Het daarvoor nu ineens vereiste Nokia messaging is nergens beschikbaar;

- Pop3 mail te kan niet meer gedownload worden; html mails zijn niet meer leesbaar;

- Vanuit de contactenlijst  / telefoonboek kan geen mail meer worden verzonden;

- De functie om foto’s per mail te versturen is vanuit het fotomenu verdwenen. De invoegfunctie van foto’s in mail is verdwenen. Foto’s kunnen daarom niet meer in een acceptabele kwaliteit worden gemaild; dit maakt de kwalitatief hoogwaardige ingebouwde camera vrijwel nutteloos.  De nieuwe mailapplicatie staat geen zoomen of flitsen toe en staat het niet toe om fotogeluid uit te zetten;

- De in de nieuwe firmware versie aangeleverde mail applicatie staat niet toe bijgesloten documenten te downloaden. Ik had hiervoor speciaal een extra grote geheugenkaart gekocht, die nu voor niets is gekocht;

- De in de nieuwe firmware versie aangeleverde mail applicatie weigert veelvuldig en is hinderlijk traag;

- De in de nieuwe firmware versie aangeleverde mail applicatie geeft een foutmelding als een Yahoo mail account wordt aangemaakt.

            Op dit moment worden op de Nokia site de oorspronkelijke functies nog steeds als beschikbaar gemeld en ook nog steeds in de in de gebruikshandleiding genoemd. Nokia houdt nieuwe kopers dus voor het lapje.  Bij de upgrade is niet gewaarschuwd voor het verdwijnen  of verslechteren van de functionaliteit.

            Tevoren heb ik een back-up gemaakt. Ik heb na de upgrade de back-up teruggeplaatst.

Gezien de bovenstaande klachten heb ik op 8 juli naar Nokia service gebeld. De volgende ochtend ben ik teruggebeld en ben ik naar het  Nokia Care Centre Breda verwezen, waar mijn toestel geflasht is en wederom versie 10.50 is geplaatst. Dat heeft niet geholpen. Terugplaatsen van een vorige versie is niet mogelijk volgens het Care-centre.

Re: Nokia 6700 classic new firmware V 13.10

For more than 2 weeks, I've been trying to update the software v 10.50, but unfortunately could not! I will be so pleased if someone tells me how to do from anywhere even from third parties.
