How to Upgrade firmware

Before upgrading the firmware, it is advisable that you take a backup of your phone, so that the data is safe and secure. There are two options to upgrade the firmware of the phone:

Using FOTA

You can directly go to the device updates by pressing *#0000# or else you can locate the device updates from Menu >> Settings >> Phone >> Phone Management >> Device Updates

People who are facing “No updates available” error message, it is due to server profile settings. We are also on a lookout for its solution and will let you know as we find it.

Please keep a watch over the connection in use while using this option as it may lead to huge bills by service providers.

PC Suite Option

The second method is to connect the phone to PC and update Nokia firmware with Nokia PC Suite.

Update: Nokia has upgraded its firmware upgrading application. It is a 25 MB (approx) application and you will have to install it in order to upgrade your mobile’s firmware.
