Hi i have a Nokia N8. Can you tell me when and if the Symbian Belle Update will be available to update my phone? The rollout started via Nokia on 7th february and is available with other irish networks.
But it says that the update with 3 is pending approval.

Hi, I was wondering if you have any further news on the expected launch date for the Symbian Belle update? I'm a 3 customer with a Nokia E7
21.02.2012 11:42 #6

Your best off keeping an eye on http://europe.nokia.co...-update-availability but that isn't reliable either as you can see it's still has the 17th on top. Three Customer Care have given me 5 different answers to what's happening, including that they aren't even thinking of releasing it! 1913 Customer Care that is...! Facebook Three put up it was Released for N8 but it wasn't and then retracted the announcement so for the E7 it's gonna be an even longer wait! Only Three UK have released Belle to the N8 and all other Symbian^3 Models are still waiting Approval which is a step up from Software Under Construction at the start of the roll out of Belle, so by the looks it's just the hold up of Three giving the go ahead to release Belle. Best give it at the very least 2 weeks and it SHOULD be here by then...

great update, my battery lasts longer as only essentials run in the background now and theres a drop down bar to control wifi, bluetooth and 3g mobile data. there are a few niggles (1) the digital clock widget is horrible, (2) and the folders, like you cant create a folder inside a folder ie.. for keeping your apps tidy. but once you get past these its actually a good operating system. i cant wait for my contract to end with 3 as i have my sights set on the nokia lumia 800.

Installed the belle update for the N8 earlier today and now all i get is a request to enter my Security Code (which is something I had never used) - nothing in the manuals received about a sercurity code and 1913 Customer care say the only thing is to send the phone off to be fixed. That means I'd be without a phone for a while which is not ideal - anyone had this issue and anyone have any idea on how it can be fixed other than sending phone away...:confused:
