GadgetLover, 18 Feb 2012I think the difference between updating from Symbian^3 to Anna vs. from Symbian Anna to Belle,... moreYou can still create folders in belle,
If you try the update you'll know its a no brainer.
I have created shortcuts and widgets for all the items in menu on my 6 homescreens so i don't have to open d menu anymore.
I couldn't recommend nokia over android or iphone with anna but with belle the experience is so great, my time on anna now seems like a nightmare,
I am no longer afraid to give people my phone to play with because i know it won't freeze up like anna or develop an attitude.
Which apps do you want to make sure are working? I could confirm for you.

I think the difference between updating from Symbian^3 to Anna vs. from Symbian Anna to Belle, is that the former was a no-brainer, updating from S^3 to Anna was the natural thing to do, and the phone had a lot of improvements as a result.From Anna to Belle brings things we wished for earlier like resizeable and free-positioning widgets and more homescreens, but on the downside, removes some functionality from Anna (Menu and folder settings, ?flv playback, loss of apps and compatibility in some instances etc).
You would still have a great phone with Anna, but it wouldn't be a superlative phone with Belle. I guess its the future apps with only Belle compatibility that will dictate if some people will update or not; I wish the decision was as easy as from S^3 to Anna.

Hello all C7 users... I have owned One Nokia C7 running on Anna and just s came to know that Belle update is available for C7 as well. One of my friend told me about this forum. So Im here to ask all those who updated to Belle that- IS IT WORTH TO UPDATE TO BELLE. I hope you all will give me the true and reliable information.
I think buddies like Dr.Bidhan.Ashman,GadgetLover etc etc all are updated to BELLE.Waiting for all your valuable replies SOON. Thanks
The cameraS ( software of course ) are so much better,
The front camera is no longer pixated,
The main camera can now pick up words from paper at a distance of about 20cm plus zoom.
Videoes are no longer bundled together with pictures in the gallery.
And as the Doc said they are all bundled together in DCIM folder in the file manager but i prefer it that way for easy sorting.
And one very important thing, i think the GPU is now more active because the colours look more vibrant especially in the gallery.

AnonD-22351, 18 Feb 2012From where can i get my own certificate and key GadgetLover..??I got mine from OPDA, a chinese site, over a year ago. Its time consuming and requires you to give them your IMEI. I would suggest you try hacking your phone, its way easier.

Its quite easy, just follow the nokiavnn hack method Dr. Bidhan was talking about earlier, once its done you wont need to sign your apps.

AnonD-22351, 18 Feb 2012Dear GadgetLover:-) whats this sklchan mods..?Its a set of mods for S^3 and Anna phones which tweak various settings and can improve your camera too..follow the link below but make sure you read the instructions CAREFULLY..to change any tweak, you have to uninstall the app and reboot the phone, also for any effect to take place you have to install the app with the particular mod selected when installing and reboot your phone. DO NOT select apps not meant for your phone (eg if you have a C7, dont select the N8 mods), just read the instructions well and you'll be fine.
Here's the link, you might have to register, I'm not sure if its signed or not. Have fun! Cheers.
