Firmware Updates for Nokia Mobile Phones

Posted in Mobility at Sunday, 03 September 2006 01:59 W. Europe Daylight Time

Nokia finally enables customers to perform firmware upgrades on their own. No need to have a Club Nokia card just to get free firmware updates in the local Nokia store. I appreciate their decision as it's something that other manufacturers like Siemens do for years. However, I'm a little tempted to buy a Windows Mobile 5 phone when my T-Mobile contract is renewed next year. We'll see.

The firmware upgrade software is currently in a testing phase in the UK, but you can download it even if you're not located in the United Kingdom. You'll need the battery charger attached to the device and the phone connected to the PC via the USB cable.

Nokia Software Updater

The update of my 6680 went smoothly without any problems. I just had to run the updater under an administrative account.

As always, be sure to back up your phone data beforehand using PC Suite's Content Copier. Note that the lock code will be reset to its default value of 12345 and that all wallet data will be gone after the update (it's not included in the Content Copier backup). Side note: The update will not remove any phone branding.

Take a look at for a vast list of Series60 firmware revision changelogs.

I am in South Africa, and when I use the firmware update application the Nokia Website reports the latest version as version 10.0.0.??? and not version 11.0.021 is this because of my region being South Africa or has version 111.0.??? been pulled ?
