  • borg

    don’t forget the emoticons, dude. :)

  • no update available mine? :(((((( what should I do?

    • Can you share how are you updating your firmware?

    • Sajal Bagchi : by checking sw update, nokia suite & device updates. but no available >__<

    • Stephen Shane first of all firmware cannot be updated using sw update..
      follow either of these below steps :
      1. Dial *#0000# and device updates page will open..goto options–>check for updates
      (this would be the OTA–Over the air update)..make sure you have internet running on your device.

      2.Download Nokia Software Updater or latest Nokia PC Suite and connect your phone using cable and update your device.

      NOTE: before running the updates..please take backup of your nokia device..
      Let me know if you face any issue..

    • Sajal Bagchi : Step 1 and 2 i already did and i do it again but no update available. -___-

    • Stephen Shane then may be this could help you—>

      Why can’t I get new software for my device?

      Update availability is based on many things, including existing Nokia device software version, country, and operator. It may be due to one of these variables that your Nokia device isn’t eligible for updates.

      Please note that your mobile service provider, operator, or carrier may not have approved the latest Nokia device software available.

      Nokia produces many different variants of each product (for different countries and languages) and not all variants have the latest Nokia device software. It is our priority to update all variants as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any delay.

  • RockStar

    When will be come the last version of nokia X6???

  • Rajkiran dhyani

    why there is no update of nokia x6 8gb after V.40. I am bored from this phone. Its too costly and Internal Ram is only 128. No multiple selection of pics and contact,Only way is to select one by one.Games and application of this phone is not good as android. This phone not take charging when connecting through usb cable in laptop.Due to internal memory is low showing memory is full close some application each and every time.Lots of disadvantage is there in this phone
