How To Update The Firmware

There are many ways of updating the firmware on your Nokia handset. To install the software on your device using FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air), type in *#0000# on the home screen or go to Device Manager. Then select Options, Check for updates and follow the on screen prompts. If the firmware update is not immediately available via FOTA, or the device you are using does not have support for this service, you can also update your firmware using NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and or Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC. Once you plug your device in, select the PC Suite option, ensuring that the phone has a Sim Card inserted and the profile is set to General. Some devices support UDP (User Data Preservation), which will preserve all your data and content on your device during these updates. However we still recommend you do a full backup in order to guarantee the safety of your data. Please share your thoughts and experiences with the new firmware in the comments below.

Nokia Situations | Smarter Profile Management

Nokia Beta Labs has just released a new experimental application that takes your profiles management to a new level. There’s a hell of a lot to set up, so it’s not exactly intuitive, but can make life a lot easier in the long run. Nokia Situations automatically senses the situation you are in based on time, day, location and available networks. It then switches to the set profile that meets that criteria. Hit the jump for the video demo.
