but i didnt had any net conection probs during updating.
i did OTA instead of through pc suite.
thanks for sharing your experience,i guess i will try to reinstall the update :)
mustafafcb, 17 Oct 2012you can update from nokia belle to FP2 immediately no need to update to FP1BUt, will I get the improvements of fp1?
ab, 17 Oct 2012isnt that custom firmware' method you have mentioned there ??? Well....lets see i dont mind... moreYes, the custom firmware makers use this software to install their firmwares. But i think that phoenix was meant for advanced phone reparing. Maybe used even by nokia care, or other software reparing centres. At least i think so. I don't realy know:)). But for shore, it was'nt made for custom firmares:)
ab, 17 Oct 2012isnt that custom firmware' method you have mentioned there ???
Well....lets see i dont mind... morein my experience with updating fp2;
as long as updating firmware in progress, internet connection must always connected to prevent file corruption.
I had problems too with lagging, the screen brightest increasing, and restarting.
Then i redownload the firmware, and that time the connection was perfected.
Now i don't have that problems anymore.

Well....lets see i dont mind giving it a try though...
Thanks alot for this idea...hope my device will come out good after this :)
Hugo da Rocha, 16 Oct 2012Hello Carol I am going to buy a nokia 603 next week. So, i was wondering, will i have any p... moreNo it's no need for that. But you can do it if the phone comes costomized in same way you don't like and it's not factory default, soooo... you don't like:)). Anyway, i think that your phone will come up to date already. If not you have the only option to install fp2, you cannot install fp1 cause it is older, at least not with nokia suite.:
ab, 16 Oct 2012thanks for the advice carol.....but i hve already done that ....m no new bee to smartphones...... moreOk, it is good that you are not newbee. I couldnt know that:). If you are not, then, let's test your skills and take the update to the next level;). So, than format your phone by 3 buttons method (you will find the exact buttons you need to press) on google. Now format your memory card. Now download phoenix (you will find the lastest version on symbian-developers.net). Now download the latest firmware with fp2 for 808 your exact product code via Navifirm. The instructions on how to install firmwares with phoenix is on the site i've mentioned before or on 808fanclub. Now place the original files in phoenix folder (they will explain exactly where and how to do it). Flash the original fp2 clean as you install a windows:). Give this a try. If this method still doesn-t work rhan take it to nokia care centre, almost all people love this phone and it's quality so it's no need to give up on it.
Carol, 16 Oct 2012How you've updated? This doesn't sound like it's the phone to blame, but more the software. Di... moreHello Carol
I am going to buy a nokia 603 next week. So, i was wondering, will i have any problems if i update my nokia 603 to belle fp1 and then fp2 the same day i buy it, without installing anything on it? Or do i still need to format it?
Carol, 16 Oct 2012How you've updated? This doesn't sound like it's the phone to blame, but more the software. Di... morethanks for the advice carol.....but i hve already done that ....m no new bee to smartphones....i hv only used high end phones.(no arrogance intended)
i hd done the hard reset before updating....i did ota update not through pc suite.
And regarding apps...i dnt install any...since on symbian there ain't any !!!! :p
well as u said...i will again try through pc suite....i hope it will work....really don't want to give up on this phone...fingers crossed....and thanks again....really appreciate :)
ab, 16 Oct 2012updated to fp2. anybody is facing - light sensor issue ??? inspite of keeping the brigh... moreHow you've updated? This doesn't sound like it's the phone to blame, but more the software. Did you had this problems befor update? Do you have allot of softwares installed in mass memory? Did you had softwares in phone memory before update? Now, to say that your phone was updated without formatting first i will say it again. You people need to format before doing this major updates. If you install windows 7 over vista is most likely not gonna run like if you install it on a clean hard drive, or? Ok, now let's start over:). Copy all your multimedia files from mass storage into pc ( keep in mind, only your stuff like, pictures, music, videos) now format mass memory. Now save your contacts (messages to, if you want to) and format phone memory to -> Just hit *#7370# , give your security code if you have one and hit ok, your phone will restart and the formatting might take from 5 to 10 minutes, so don't freaq out. If you did the update via pc you need to delete the files that nokia suite saved doring the update. This files are in fac the firmware located in windows 7 ultimate in: programdata (this is a hidden folder)/nokia/nokia suite/NOSSU2/variants/products/ delete the folder with your product code. Now plug the phone and hit reinstall firmware. Lt's see what happens.
updated to fp2.
anybody is facing -
light sensor issue ??? inspite of keeping the brightness to the lowest screen is increasing its brightness to the full most often.
volume control issue ??? my volume always stays at 50%(scroll stays in the middle) no matter how many times i keep it on full.

my last hope...you guys....help me if possible....
OMR, 15 Oct 2012who has the best picture n8 or Nokia 808 , i see some site set n8 as better than Nokia 808 in ... moreI have both N8 and 808. N8 is very good phone, but using 808 I never looked back its better. 808 camera looks amazing. With FP2 update, the 808 is very smooth and even more improved. Don't hesitate, go for 808.
808 PV, 16 Oct 2012Any advice on how to set up phone before updating to Belle FP2 to experience a trouble free up... moreif you update via OTA you will not lose anything, but you may find some bugs. So, it is recommanded to format your phone, entirely, bring back all to factory, then update via nokia suite.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2012where can i find made in finland 808 pureview.In India it shows as made by Nokia.I dont think that exists 808PV made in Finland. I advise you (always, for any brand and for any device)to take a look at "GSMArena unboxing" and to watch carefully the fotos of the box, device (on the back) etc...and you will see written made in China. I am telling this because the devices tested from gsmarena are 110% official and original, so you can not be confused. As i know, N9, N8, E7, E6 are made in Finland.
