Version 3.0638.0.0.1
30-10-2006
RM-133

Official Nokia changelog
Changes/improvements from MCU SW version 2.0628.0.0.3 to version 3.0638.0.0.1:
- New features:
- Video Stabilization set ON by default
- InfraRed Modem application added
- Improvements to:
- Slow SMS Sending problem
- Incall Rebooting Issue
- Restart when 3D audio ringing tone and say callers name active (partially fixed)
- N73, N70 setting "name display order" in Contacts doesn't work
- Not Possible to Switch General mode after Offline without re-flashing
- Bluetooth Search and Connection errors
- Phone resets when connecting or disconnecting BT headset during active phone cal
- Phone hangs or Rebooting when composing an SMS (partially fixed)
- Phone hang when taking picture (partially fixed)
- Camera Freezes when zooming (partially fixed)

Known problems
Gallery still doesn't close properly (you can see it running if you have a task manager installed - this may be by design)
Camera white balance preview still does not work properly
While listening to music with 3D tones on, you get a missed call. Click Show > Dial - phone reboots. This does not happen with 3D Tones off (regression?)

Known fixes
Radio station is now displayed properly, without the extraline above it, in white color (previously it was black font)
Camera - overall feeling is that the camera works a bit faster (opening up, switching to and from Video Mode)
Gallery zooming is now slower (progress bar displayed on all zoom levels, on previous firmware progress bar was only displayed for the first step to 25%), but appears to be better quality - hence the reason for slowing down.
New Modem app in the Applications folder, it can connect via infrared (only). No help is included for the new app.
Phone Memory backup restore now works
3D Tones seem to work properly now
Voice dialling now works while listening to the radio
You can now delete un-retrieved emails without Messaging crashing

New problems / regressions
While listening to music with 3D tones on, you get a missed call. Click Show > Dial - phone reboots. This does not happen with 3D Tones off (maybe an old bug)

Changes
Active Standby is now in bold font
New ringtones added (some labeled 3D Effect #)
Music playback resumes after a call

This firmware is available via Nokia's online update service at http://www.europe.nokia.com/softwareupdate
