The Nokia C7 has recently received its first firmware update PR 1.1, taking it up to v13.0.16. This PR 1.1 is also headed to other Symbian^3 devices such as the Nokia N8 and Nokia C6-01. The new firmware should be available for most of you right now, although it may take a while for it to become available to everyone. Hit the jump to find out what’s new.
Most of the updated features may not directly be visible, but together, they aim to enhance the user experience, improving the quality and stability of the device. Some of the new features include:
- Meeting requests can be accepted directly from email invitations.
- Maps integration in email, which means people can view the meeting location on the map when the address is mentioned in the location field in the invite.
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.
