Thanks for you opinions,John and Anonymous, sounds good! My hangups about Belle are that I will lose all my apps on C: (about 50 in my case, installed there by default) and from what I hear the widgets are larger but less practical and have lost the clean functionality of Anna..also minor niggles like the way the menu has to be arranged and no option for widgets online/offline..
But from all accounts I've heard,the new OS is more stable and smooth. I just don't like the idea of restoring all my apps back. Will a restore option work?
Thanks a million for all your good advice and opinions guys, really appreciate it!

Videoes are no longer in gallery.
The menu doesn't have folders but u can create yours.
Upgrading to Belle is like buying a new and vastly improved phone.
If you liked anna you're gonna love belle.

The OS is very stable and fast.
Dear c7 users....fring is not working belle...
I wants to down grade from belle to anna...plz hlp...
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.
