Nokia N8 resets after latest software update

I have a Nokia N8 with Symbian Anna. 3 days ago I did a Software Update(something that was marked as "Important" device software update or something like this). After this my N8 is getting reset everyday(at least one time per day). Is this a new feature introduced by Nokia? If yes, please remove it, it is not nice at all. For example yesterday when I was driving using Nokia maps my phone was restarted in the middle of a city...

Before this update I had no problems, I used my N8 weeks without getting a reset.

Re: Nokia N8 resets after latest software update

Hi danpc23,


Are you saying after the Anna update your Nokia N8 just randomly restarts the phone or does application quits?


Also does this happen randomly or only when using specific application?

Re: Nokia N8 resets after latest software update

I always find doing a reset after a SW update helps, as you can get conflict between the settings from the old SW to the new. It's a bit of a pain, but my E7 is running really great on Anna, and I did do a reset. If you try it, backup your contacts, calendar and notes ONLY, as a full backup and restore will restore any conflict ! Dial *#7370# followed by 12345, if required, and then set up the phone manually, it's a bit of a pain and takes time and effort, but is worthwhile :smileywink:

If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :

It was not a problem with Anna, after updating to Anna it worked fine. The problem appeared after an sw update. I the meantime another sw update was installed(some service pack for Anna) and now the problem disappeared.
