Nokia Firmware updates…

August 22, 2006

Greetings weary traveller…

Nokia has released firmware updates for some Symbian S60/S40 phones. These updates can be downloaded from the Nokia UK Webpage @ http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,1522,,00.html?orig=/softwareupdate

The N80 has got the first FOTA upgrade ( Firmware over the air ). Check out Symbian-freak.com for more info . This allows you to download the firmware onto the phone using GPRS / WLAN and install it directly.

The firmware updates are available for free download for the following phones.. the N70 / N72 , 6630 , 6680, 6681 , 6682 6131. —  The 6131 supports FOTA, ( since it is based on S60 V3 ). The other phones will have to be upgraded using a PC and a data cable.–

— A firmware upgrade on a phone usually has a bunch of fixes/upgrades to the software. So it’s usually a good thing to have the latest firmware…  If you plan to do this, make sure to plugin your phone to the wall charger, and close all running applications!
