After a quick search around, i get completely lost about the right and safe firmware for this phone.
There are some issues ready to be fixed, so im guessing nokia is working on that. Having that said, i see to many firmwares, to many versions, to many sources, absolutely no oficial news on that.
Using the phone itself, there are no new updates.....
Soft Version: 012.003
Version Date: 2010-09-19
Personalised Version: 012.003.262.02
Personalised Version Date: 2010-10-08
Language Set: 012.003.11.01
Product ID: 059D9Q6
Last Update: No updates
Browser Version: 7.2
Flash Version: 4.0
Java Version: 2.1
a) Is this the latest firmware?
b) There are some unoficial notices about a 012.004 version. How can i know if its reliable?
c) Where can i look for new firmware without using my phone to search it?
You can search for new updates here.
Just insert your product code, the one on the label under the battery, and you will know which is the last version for your phone.
In the "News" tab you can see the content of the update if there is one.
Allready seen that page. Like i said, no oficial notices for new firmware for C7...
Actualy, even i dont input my product code, when i select the phone, immediately i get: There are no software updates available for this product yet
So, i understand there is zero releases for this phone, since its exists....
Hope im wrong.
Paid big money for a phone who doesnt identify the sms sender.....
This is a quite new model, so you must give them time to detect and correct all the errors that users find.
It usually takes some time to get a new firmware, but after it comes, the phone becomes more reliable.
Moreover, I think they want to do great things with Symbian^3 (one for all, they are developing a completely new browser), so give them some time and you will get an update that will make your phone a whole new experience!
