good news to every body who are awaiting for a update of nokia asha 305 finally nokia released a update v05.92 dated 26-10-2012. However at present the handset can only be updated with gprs from mobile using settings>phone>device updates>downl.phone sw. the update will be available soon in pc suit so i suggest you to wait for a week or 2 weeks to avail in pc suite.it is recommended to backup first if you r updating using phone. i updated my mobile on 28/11/2012 and feeled teh following improvements made after update.
1.you tube online streaming fixed(now you can watch youtube videos directly without downloading)
2.red theme for mobile as shown in advertisement
3.improved battery backup
but still there are some error which can be corrected by nokia
1.no copy paste option in message(copy paste option is very common in nokia phones but not available in this mobile)
2.network selection error in sim 2 when sim 1 is selected to manual(not often but sometimes rarely)
3.add facebook to social so that we can upload photos to web
4.memory problem(memory low problem is not that panic when compared to c2-03 but stil a problem is always a problem)
these are the problems in my view if any suggestions please help nokia to solve our problems by releasing a new update post ur feeling freely and solve your problems through updates

the FOTA update packages for the latest Asha 305 update were quite big (around 5 MB) and it takes some additional space on top of that to get the package installed to the phone. If there is a memory card inserted to the phone, the update package should get downloaded to memory If not, then phone memory is used for the whole process. Asha 305 does not have a lot of free phone memory even in fully clean state (~10 MB), so this can be a problem.
ways to work around this memory limitation:
* use a memory card in the phone - then the FOTA update package should get downloaded there instead of phone memory. If needed, you can also transfer pics, videos, user installed apps to the memory card to free up space.
* alternatively you can update the device with Nokia Suite on your PC. With that update method there's no similar memory limitation, so having a memory card is not necessary.
* If the above options do not work, as a "last resort" you could take the phone to a Nokia Care service for update/reflashing.
for further details you can take a look at this refined software update instruction page I posted a couple of days back: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Soft
