Software update instructions for Nokia Asha 501

Hey,

 

software update instructions for Asha 501 can be found from here:

 

http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/new-nokia-asha-software-update

 

By default your phone is set to automatically check for updates every 8 days and you will be notified when an update is available for download. If you want, it's possible to force the update check immediately by switching off and back on "Check via mobile data" setting from the “Phone update” menu. The size of the update is around 8 MB, so it's recommended to use Wi-Fi for the download.

Im really tired of waitng for the release of update for my 501. Will it satisfy all the 501 users as expected??? I really luv my gadget. Yet it needs basic functions like text copy and paste, increase in alarm volume, file manager with mark and share option, contacts that can have their own ringtone assingment and easy to access songs for music player. Can the wait be worth???

@ djcsweet16 :

 

Hey,Copy paste Function is not going to be added.

Alarm volume is increased in coming update.

Filemanager issue is not known.

 

And you can set the individual ringtones for each contact seperately,Follow this :

 

Open Contacts > tap on any contact > swipe from down > edit > again swipe from down > add details > Now scoll the menu up and you can find  ringtone option where you can set individual ringtone for each contact seperately . :)

 

Hope this helps :)

You can force to check for an update immediately by switching off and back on "Check via mobile data" from the “Phone update” menu
