any possible way to update N80

without synchronize it to the PC?

for some strange reason my pc and my laptop doesn't seem to recognize
the n80 anymore, and i haven't succed to fix it.

how can i update my firmware anyway? i've noticed some over-air update but it doesn't seem to be active.

thanks,

roi

Warning ..

Be aware that this seems to be very unstable...I was halfway through updating my phone and lost connection with my PC for some reason..now my phone is dead...I will try to revive it....PC and phone were left alone while updating because I know how poor the connecting cable is...

And yes the battery is fully charged

UPDATE..it may be that this is supposed to happen..the updater is still working so I will come back later if it completes..

Ok, this all worked ok..I thought the phone was dead because the screen was off and the usb cable kept connecting and unconnecting, but that is normal, ..just leave the phone alone and plugged in and it will update ok..

The most anoying and irritating thing though is that the phone reverts back to factory settings, and although I backed up my phone contents with pc suite, I cant seem to restore them, I have tried 5 times now, all my contacts, messages installed apps, themes and ringtones I cant get back..

Damn you Nokia...Damn you to HELL

wierd, i found nokia's backup software to be 100% reliable and i keep switching from loads of phones. but your n80 back to the same one should be no problem. wasn't for me when i upgraded to v.4.

When I try to restore it goes throuh all the motions, phone switches off then back on again, says installing, then I get a message saying uncertified bla bla.... then thats it...., no contacts messages, personal settings, softwars or anything..just as it was from the factoey, luckily I save a copy of all messages and contacts to my memory card, i just need to go through the installation ao all my apps and themes..

Might not be a bad thing, a fresh install is sometimes a good idea..

Would recommend backing up the phone data to your memory card and removing it before upgrade.

Exclamation

Guys/Gals,



Backup all your data before doing a firmware upgrade whether by the online support service or by visiting a Nokia Service Centre, your data/apps/tones/pics/themes etc will all be erased. The handset will be returned to a 'fresh out of the box' state.

I did this steve, via pc suite, but the restore wont work, I have tried 8 times now and given up, I will just reinstall everything manually, but as I said I was lucky because I always keep my messages, and contact details on my mem card..

Hmmm... it says there is no new software available for mine.

I'm on Voda in the UK, and I'm still using the same buggy firmware that came with the phone several months ago. I was prepared for the fact that V4 might not be ready through the new update service, but I was at least expecting a newer version of V3.

Here's what I'm stuck with.

V3.0614.0.3
11-04-2006
RM-92
Nokia N80 (42.04)

Anyone else on UK Voda managed to get more recent firmware through offical channels?

Cheers
