Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

which menu button do you press and hold? the one inside the screen or the main menu button which is at the bottom of the phone? if you havent pressed the main menu button then pls try it. it should work.

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

This is Belle. They changed that option to this way. Honestly speaking i liked that old option more than this. It looked more professional.

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

deadmank2s the only way to get symbain belle is to have latest version of nokia suite installed in your pc and connect your mobile and check for software updates. Even then if it doesn't show the Belle update then it means it's not available at your coumtry yet. Just wait.

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

Here Are some bugs [not really], I would say bad things which i found after updating to belle.

1. No soft key to know and to close opened apps. This can be done by holding the Physical button instead which is not good acc to me.

2.  You cannot see the percentage of battery remaining as you were able to see in PR X.X and Anna. For this you need battery monitor and widget which is unnecessary for me.

3. When you want to unlock the device:- press menu key and touch anywhere in the lower area not exactly on the unlock button it will unlock your phone. Don't know it is bug or was intentional from developers. But in Anna you should touch exactly on unlock button.

4. No softkey for power saving mode again you should press the power button to do that.

5. Six homescreen with less widgets is useless. we need more widgets.

6. The new digital clock is not looking good.

7. You can create a folder but not a folder inside a folder.

8. So many apps are not supporting.

9. Social [Facebook and twitter] are having really bad widget. They should integrate the notifications to the drop down notification bar.

10. No facebook chat in nokia IM.

11. No Skype video calling and also split screen.

12. Calendar widget showing only one notification or task. it goes on and on....

 

Nokia officially changed the name Symbian belle to Nokia belle as Ovi store, Ovi Suite and Ovi Maps. So i think all these bugs and problems will be solved in upcoming Nokia Belle.

But the only question is when???

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

Thank you so much for sharing it wiht us Cool_Roy! Appreciate, man! You can't even imagine how much headache, trouble and time you saved me. The thing I know for sure is I am not installing Belle. I was stupid enough to upgrade to Symbian Anna and to lose so much functionality in Maps that I am not really willing to repeat it one more time. It looks like Nokia might have to re-name their "updates" to something like "phone worsen'ers" soon so that the end-users wouldn't waste their precious time and knew exactly what to expect from each next coming "update-worsen'er".

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

Hi  all :

After update to Belle, everything seems works accept :

 

1- when I clik on SILENT bouton in Wifi menu N8  restart, yes Restart,

 

2- there is no battery level view,  I fund (nokia battery-info-v1

     it is a widget and shows : Charge in %  , Capacity in mAh , Plug-in/plug-out

 

I hope in next update they will find a solution for that.

    (I should wait for next update)

 

After all : thanks NOKIA :-)

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

I want to mention more problems in symbian Anna or belle!

1). There is no software for video chatting over wifi excluding fring, as also  fring (fring is not working on wifi) need to be have some fixes. Android, Iphone have more than 20 video chatting softwares.

2). No one from nokia contact skype to have video calling option in skype.

3). Closing app has hardware button, which needs to be hold for some time, this is a single button if users use it many times it need to b some repair, So some soft button should available.

4). Nokia Facebook app is very slow whether your connection speed is fast, as im using 4 Mbps but it seems that im using gprs.

5). Nokia should have its own softwares which confirms qualities and quick bugs fixing support.

6). Belle has very low support of third party softwares, when nokia updates software, nokia should keep in mind that operating system platform must b same or supported with thirdparties softwares. As many updates for belle is coming, I mean to say nokia flavors Anna, belle, upcoming are Carla Donna,  but there is always big software issues remain, as the time need to fix old problems, nokia brings other fix and bug full flavor, Please choose generalized hardware, then stable operating system, and quick support for fixes, and time to time improvement in GUI or widgets rather than rolling old softwares just change GUI or upgrades protocols or standards where needed.

This is how we want to attach only with nokia, so I want nokia symbian to b best other than android or iphone, windows phone 7,  as  Symbian can also stand with wp7, just need to focus on apps..........................

Re: Nokia N8 - Updated to Symbian Belle

I also have had several problems with Belle since I "updated" to it:-

 

1. The Web browser - this is actually worse than it was on Anna - it does not work at all - I have to double tap several times in order to get it to work. Also I keep getting grey screens whenever I try to open a .txt file - they worked fine on Anna but it seems to be riddled with problems and generally is very slow

 

2. The WIFI connection - I sometimes connect to my WIFI router at home using the WIFI connector on the phone - I think it just does not work properly at all the connection can be slow to pedestrian and it is just generally terrible. Also as I am unable to connect to my router I am using up my mobile internet allowance with my provider - it worked fine under Anna so why are there problems with Belle?

 

3. ESPN Goals - this was a **bleep** free goals thing launched by ESPN it scarcely worked under Anna and does not work at all under Belle

 

4. Double tapping - I end up doing this on several applications even those loaded onto the phone itself

 

5. Personalized ringtones and wallpapers - why does it always reset itself to the nokia ringtone and wallpapers - I use a personalized ringtone and wallpapers and rather than transferring them over, I have to reinstall them - the menus are not easily accessed on Belle as they were on Anna.

 

6. Screensaver mode - this does not allow for personalization at all - why?

 

Overall I regret installing Belle on my mobile and wish I'd been given a choice over whether or not I wanted to update it
