Software Updates via Mac OSX

From the FAQ pages:
Can I use Nokia Software Updater with a Mac running OSX?
Microsoft Windows XP (SP1 or SP2) or Microsoft Windows Vista (Home, Professional and 64bit) are supported.
Nokia Software Updater does not work with Windows Media Centre, Mac, or Linux operating systems.

So how are Mac/Linux users supposed to update their firmware, or should we just not have Nokia phones?

Re: Software Updates via Mac OSX

Unfortunately the only option for those without access to a windows PC or a device that has FOTA updates is a nokia care point. It is unknown if a MAC updater will be released.

In future more devices will support FOTA updates so no computer will be required. FOTA = Firmware Over The Air. Unfortunately the E71 does not have FOTA updates available to it.

A nokia care point will update it for free (whilst under warranty), possibly while you wait.

If you want to complain about the lack of a MAC updater you need to use the "contact us" link at the top of the page. Complaints here may not be seen.

I don't know about the Mac situation, but can you name a single brand of phone that can be updated with a Linux machine?

More and more Nokia phones can be updated via FOTA nowadays anyway.
