    i purchase a c1-01 with a version of 3.35. there’s a new software available 4.40 but i can’t download the new software. could you possibly help me update?

    • Quaint

      If you are using windows 7, then let windows update run. It will update the nokia drivers, then update the nokia ovi to the latest version.

      If you still cant update post the error here. We might help you out.

      • I bought NOKIA C1-01 (firmware version: 3.35) today with code: 059G897. I used nokia updater. It detects my firmware version 3.35 but doesnot update it. Please help me. Reply to my email address: [email protected]

  • Aloon

    I have the same problem with my C1-01 on 3.35. Ovi store says no updates.

    When I check with the Nokia site with my product code, it says that there are no product updates for my device?

    I’m on the UK site and it says that 4.40 should be available?

    Do some carriers not get updates? I’m with T-Mobile. I have absolutely no idea why Nokia or T-Mobile would do this. I only bought this phone to tide me over until my contract will can be renewed in a few months, as my smartphone got ran-over.

    I was considering waiting to see what Nokia came up with on their WP7 smartphone front, but if they play silly beggers with updates, I’m not really interested.

    • Daniel

      If you go thru the Phone and look for Updates, just try connect to the Web via your phone, if you put in *#0000# it comes up with the Phone being in v: 4.40 but it does upgrade the Software takes about 20 mins or so. just do not stop the update. It may just crash.

    • Bilal

      there is no device manager in c1-01 DM comes in symbian mobiles and it is s40 device, goto phone in settings option look there if you could find phone updates option there, it depends on firmware software version if your’s is 3.30/40 you won’t find it but if you have 5.45 you can find it, and idk about 4.40 because i jumped from 3.30/40 to 5.45 take care.

    whats the new firmware for nokia c1-01?ASAP sir:)

    • Bilal

      New firmware software update version for Nokia c1-01 is, 5.45 currently i’m using this version

  • Bilal

    you can’t stream any online videos in c1-01 because of lack of flashlite and any j2me youtube player application won’t work in it the only way to stream online videos is via bolt bolt browser not lite version full vrsn and you will need to run it in desktop mode not mobile, but it will show you very small video however you can make it bigger by enabling landscape mode but there is still a problem which sucks is that it doe7’nt play video continuosly it’ll take break of 6/7 sec and play video for same time,

  • Daniyal

    Sir, can we apply operator logo in Nokia C1-01? And how we apply it?

  • Siyal Khan

    I’m using latest Firmware for my Phone (Nokia C1-01) which is Software Version 05.45, Dated 22-06-2011. I updated it from the Nokia Care Center in Pakistan.

    V. 05.45
    (c) Nokia
    Varient: 00.00.

    The only thing which is new is Drafts Messages Folder. Other things like Performance improvements & Usability improvements.


  • Deep

    you haven’t mentioned what usability and performance improvements. Need to be a little bit more specific. Most updates for example a PC would have Security updates and bug fixes. Similarly a phone update, most of the times would have performance and feature improvement.
    The two most import improvements are…
    1) bluetooth audio quality
    2) memory card improvements

    and by the way Nokia C1-02 does not support *#0000#> check for updates.
