I cannot believe how painfully frustrating it is to update my phone. The process has so far been:
Had to get my phone unlocked as there is some miscomunication with Nokia and service providers. This takes 48 hours. Then I had to obtain another sim card and unlock the phone.
You cant just update it by pressing a button; you have to update it via a computer connection. I already have PC suite, Ovi AND Nokia Updater but still had to mess around, and a computer reset, for the 103mb update... for the updater! Plugged my phone in and had to again wait for 5 minutes whilst PC suite checked if the "phone PC Suite" was up to date with the "computer pc suite".
Finally got to the point where i could update my phone and guess what...? It failed for any number of reasons and i have to try again at a later stage.
Is this really necesary? Can't it just be a button saying update somewhere in the phone?
Sorry for the rant! I just get so frustrated with the N97 and Nokia etc so easily now.
thanks for the feedback and suggestions guys. im gonna have another go in a min to update and try messing with the settings. like i say though, very frustrating. i used to think nokia was brilliant but it seems these smart phones, and the ability to keep up with apple, have been too much for them. they seem to be failing at every hurdle now... lol i sound so bitter!
Uninstalled everything. Reinstalled ovi. Tried to update via ovi, half through update it disconnected my phone and crashed. My phone now doesn't work and ovi suite has no useful info.
What an absolute joy this has been so far. Thanks again Nokia!
I understand that you poor nokia reps have had enough of the likes of us nokia n97 users, but as u can plainly see i am in a difficult position. Why not help me!!!!!!!
