People...don't use phone updater software

Today I download and updated my Nokia 302.....it erased all me data contacts every dam thing.

 

Worst of all it never gave any warning.......**bleep** updater......

 

Atleast give a warning that all my contacts and data will be erased....no...not a single bloody warning....only warning was not to disconnect the phone....

 

These nokia people just disconnected me I completely lost faith in nokia...... My next phone will be Samsung.....

Re: People...don't use phone updater software

Sorry to know about your problem ..

Can't do anything unless you have Synced data or have taken a back-up ..

BTW, it would have been better to warn the users about this issue by telling to Back-up data before updating rather than "don't use phone updater software.."

It would also be interesting to know whether FOTA or PC upgrade (Nokia Suite) was used. I always use Nokia Suite and the only problem I have with Series 40 phones is that the home screen and Goto menu shortcuts (in S40 phones with physical keyboard like the C2-01 and Asha 303) get reseted to default values. Other settings are preserved. It's a relatively small annoyance, but I do not want to explain my wife where all her shortcuts have vanished... (I'll have to restore them manually from now on if the bug isn't fixed soon).
