To everyone who had a problem after installing the optional "Maps update with Enhanced drive" of "Feature not supported" and Maps no longer working like I had on Symbian Anna, this is what you need to do:
1) A soft/hard reset,backup restore or even reinstalling current firmware will not work.
2) Uninstall the following from Application Manager/Installed apps :
a) Nokia Maps
b) Nokia Maps ODML
c) ODML Commons Repository
d) Nokia Maps suite installer.
You may have all or just 1-2 of these, delete all which you have. You can leave optionals like Check-in or Weather/places intact.
3) Reboot your phone
4) Download the 3.06 version of maps available through OVI store or the 3.08 version for Anna (ONLY the Anna version if ur running Anna, the Belle one will mess it up, so be careful) from Nokia Beta Labs (either is ok, I did 3.06 and THEN 3.08 beta)
5) After installing, it will open up automatically
6) your old maps should be intact (mine were), or do a fresh download
Tell me how it works guys, was really worried when my Maps got messed up and spent 3 hours doing all sorts of restore before figuring out how to do it..Now everything is OK!! :)

And an amoled screen uses less power, has infinite contrast, generally a better look and feel, and allows awesome apps like the Nokia sleeping screen to work. Not to mention, amoleds are rare. And if you look closely at the 701s, you'll see that the material used looks cheaper than that on the super sleek c7.

Then how come it's not doing too well in the gaming field. 701's screen is supposed to provide better outdoor brightness, while the C7 is not too good in the sunlight... the brightness level has to be stepped up to the full.
Where is the testing? can you provide the link? and thanks for your insight... it definitely makes me feel better with my C7 knowing... well, we haven't been cheated by Nokia.
I have also noted that certain file formats of video do not play... some formats only produce videos without audio and some only audio without visualizations. Video is definitely great ... with some jaggies in the darker scenes. But I must say... the phone keeps on impressing me more and more as I explore the many features she has day by day. Cheers!!!

The gpu is also supposed to be better, but so far the c7 has outperformed the 701 in gaming, perhaps due to better optimization. And the c7 comes with an amoled screen, which is quite a novelty. And the c7 is half a millimeter slimmer, and the key positioning is better. So it's basically a question of performance vs quality. Both are similarly priced too.
Naga, 09 Nov 2011Hi, friends C7 is good or Nokia 701 Is good 701 has a definite advantage of a more powerful CPU and GPU. other than that they are almost identical twins.
Rakesh, 08 Nov 2011Hi ashman i have update all but ovi store not working please suggest meAs far as I know, Ovi Store is now called Nokia Store. So download the latest Nokia Store software for mobile (c7) and try to connect.
I bought my nokia C7 last week. I've updated it in symbian anna after i updated it, WLAN and internet connection opens by itself. Can't turn it off and my phone doesn't auto rotate. How can I fix this? Someone pls. Help me. Tnx!
I swaped my c6 with some amt of money added to it for an exchange for c7 jus to get rid of flex cable disturbance. I'm now a member of c7 family eventho 8gb internal memory may not be enough for me, i can expand it with 16gb external memory. Welcome to c7 world, the classic, slim and sexy phone all in one touch.
