Support - S60 3rd Edition - Upgrading

Missing applications on S60 5th Edition

Q. Having upgraded from a Nokia N95 to a 5800 XpressMusic, I've been very happy with the extra functionality and that lovely large screen. However, quite a few of the utilities that I'd grown to depend on in the N95 seem to have disappeared. Specifically Sync, N-Gage, Search, Connection Manager, GPS Data, Wireless Keyboard and Memory (Backup). Whew, quite a long list, actually. Can any of these be downloaded separately?

Why is the size of the firmware update different?

Q. Why is the size of the firmware update through the phone itself (Over The Air) around  a few MB (at most), while Ovi Suite says the update is well over 100MB?

When everything goes horribly wrong in Nokia Software Update

Q. I was trying to upgrade my S60 smartphone using Nokia Software Update, but after the download and 'installing' sections were complete, the NSU error dialog appeared, advising me to 'Retry'. But the device itself appears dead, with no backlight and no messages. And 'Retry' does nothing.

How can I carry on with my Nokia Maps license after a hard reset?

Q. I paid for a year's navigation on my S60 smartphone but then I upgraded the firmware and now navigation doesn't work anymore. Surely I don't have to pay all over again?

Keeping data while having your smartphone's firmware upgraded

Q. My Nokia smartphone is quite an early example and I've had few problems with it. I've read quite a bit about making sure to keep Symbian smartphones upgraded to the latest firmware version, but I'm worried about losing data and about the inconvenience of being without my device. Is it all worth it and what should I do to ensure I keep all my information?
