Robert, 29 Jun 2010No, you cannot download it and install it offline. It will take about 15-30 minutes for Nokia ... moreOww man!! I hope there is a way to do that. I am ready to take the risk. My phone is out of warranty in the first place. After updating, if my phone's firmware starts to corrupt then i won't be able to reinstall the software again. If only i could do offline updating, then i could reinstall the software again and again from the same pc (which is possible).
Sbdevilmind, 27 Jun 2010Oh i see. So comparatively it is better than v7.95. And about the keypad and the D pad paint, ... moreNo, you cannot download it and install it offline. It will take about 15-30 minutes for Nokia Software Updater to download and update your firmware. But some sites have an offline version and some flashing tools but this is risky and a tedious, complicated task.

Robert, 27 Jun 2010The speed of navigation and other operations improved, though the lag in Cam and Music player ... moreOh i see. So comparatively it is better than v7.95. And about the keypad and the D pad paint, i agree cause mine has crossed 1 year and yet there is no sign of the colour fading, leave aside peeling off. Another thing, can you tell me how to use the nokia software updater? Can i download it in an internet cafe and then bring it to home in a pen drive and then install the software. Cause i don't have net in my home. I use my mobile for writing all these comments.
hi. I have been trying to upgrade my phone as my version is 7.91. but the ovi suite is showing that there is no update for it. is there any other site or program that can upgrade my phone. pls pls suggest. I am in Karachi, Pakistan. Thanks in advance.
Of course it does not support sis files because it does not have a symbian OS you dimwit, my opinion is a pretty good phone especially price/quality ratio.
Bought this in India Mumbai for Rs.4800 after getting fedup with my Samsung Star 5233. Good phone. Good User Interface, good sync with Outlook, amazing music quality.
This phone is very bad it can not support sis file and also ovi store.

More likely, you have a software glitch. You need to update/reinstall its firmware via Nokia software updater.
Sbdevilmind, 25 Jun 2010Thanks for the proof of this firmware's existence. By the way, can you be a little more specif... moreThe speed of navigation and other operations improved, though the lag in Cam and Music player is still there, it is barely noticeable now. Stable software upgrade, no problems encountered so far. Also i noticed battery consumption is lessened.
Sbdevilmind, 26 Jun 2010Hey Robert, if you are here then please let me know with what you updated your 5130 to v7.96? ... morei updated mine via Nokia sofwate updater. By the way, my phone is made from India which i think has better build quality over china made nokias. No more peeling of directional keys paint. Kinda hard paint is used.

Since i have v7.95 and there is a v7.96 so i thing that nokia software will flash the phone by itself, by updating it.
