Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

Availability of updates depend on Region / Product Code. Also if the phone is Network locked, then the update is possible only after an approval from the Operator. Though the Nokia website shows an availability, there isn't any for your device.. so wait and keep on checking...

The only official ways to update the Firmware are..

1. Thru' the Phone,

2. Thru' OVI Suite or Nokia Software Updater,

3. Nokia Care

Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

Then your last bet is nokia Care.. If even they can't help you (.. and most probably that will be the case..).. you do not have any other option but to wait till an update is released for your device....

That's because there is no update for your phone released yet. We cannot discuss any other ways here, as farby said you will have to wait until the update becomes available for Rogers.

 

To clear up any confusion - even if you have unlocked your phone to be used on a different network, it still remains network-branded with network-branded firmware. SIM-locking and network-branding are two completely different things. Removing the branding will not unlock the handset and similarly unlocking the phone does not remove the branding.

Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

The only authorized way of having a phone de-branded is by going to Nokia Care Point, and ask them kindly to do it for you.

 

Kind regards,

Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

u must have ovi suite's latest version eg. 3........do not just install software updater!!

 connect ur phone and check the latest updates (tools-softwareudates-check updates) prompt all the avialaible updated. You'll see updates Symbian Anna and some free applications e.g. Galaxy on fire, real golf ec. select all of those updates and click continue.

phone's software Updates complete in 2 section you'll see this on ur screen anyway updating 1 of 2

It is my advise to not disconnect your phone unless ur ovi suite says to do so, It took more than 45 mins on mine phone. i am not sure how long its gonnna take on urs one.

again there are limitations of this new software update (symbian Anna) it might not be available in your country. it is available in UK i aint sure about other countries. if you wana change your code leme know i'll send you mine.

Good luck Mate!

You have absolutely no clue whatsoever about what the original poster wants to do. So why post a long and irrelevant message for other people to wade through ?

Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

Well to download the new symbian Anna you do need the most recent version of ovi suit. Anyhow l do not think you are missig much from this update (make no mistake symbian Anna is beautifullto the eyes) After updating my phone it has become so erratic and slow.

1) Sometimes the touch function refuses to work there fore miss calls and am forced to restart.
2)battery life only lasts me six hours as opposed to a day before update.

if l could down grade, l would.

if anyones has a solution to this please feel free but to the thread creator sorry to dampen your spirit.

Re: nokia n8 dont upgrade to latest software

i am not sure how doowngrade works in nokia n8 as i haven't tried to downgrade my phone yet, by the way it happend to my phone aswel when i attempted to update my software. Then i reinstalled symbian anna and resolved these issues. Alongside the problems u've mentioned i persume u've also lost pdf reader and office aswel during ur software updating.. Try to reinstal the software if u'r still facing the same difficulties than its advisable to contact Nokia care centre, i'm pretty
