Re: Invalid Server Name

Have you tried downloading the app directly from your phone using Ovi Store on your phone? You should see it when you press the menu button. It is the blue shopping bag with the word OVI on it.

Re: Invalid Server Name

FWIW I have tried for 4 weeks to solve this. Been on the phone to Vodafone support. Passed to Nokia support. No joy. Suggested it was an incompatible router, even though my laptops and iPhone all connect. Saw somewhere about the QoS setting on the wireless router. Turned it OFF. Now I connect correctly.

Re: Invalid Server Name

Hi I had the same issue with my Nokia N8. was working perfectly and then my ISP changed a few log in details.

 

That's when the issues started. My ISP couldn't help, my Mobile SP was clueless and the Nokia support centre was equally unable and useless.

 

So I tried my own solution, worked like a charm.

 

Step 1 - Reset the factory defaults on your wireless router and re set up the router as if from scratch.

Step 2 - Reset the Nokia factory defaults and then once your wireless is set up, connect via your phone.

 

Worked for me, have been surfing happily since then.

 

Hope it helps!!!
