Nokia Suite Support for Nokia 301

swt1963 asked on

Hello

 

Does anyone know what the official Nokia position is regarding Nokia Suite supporting the Noklia 301?  I'd like to be able to sync music, install any future firmware upgrades etc etc without needing to use a mobile data connection.  If Nolkia aren;t going to upgrade Nokia Suite to support the 301 is there going to be an alternative?

    1. on your computer, install the Nokia Connectivity Driver (7.1.182.0)
    2. on your computer, install the latest Nokia Suite, which installs the PC Connectivity Solution (12.0.109.0)
    3. on your computer, uninstall (only) the Nokia Suite via Windows » Start » Control Panel » Software » Nokia Suite
    4. on your computer, install an old version of the Nokia Suite
    5. (optionally for Upload-to-SkyDrive/OneDrive) download ssleay32.dll and replace at C:\Program Files (x86)\Nokia\Nokia Suite\
    6. Nokia 301 » Menu » Settings » Connectivity » USB data cable » Modem mode

If your contact database and calander are cloud based already, either use:

  • OMA SyncML DS
    1. Nokia 301 » Menu » Settings » Configuration » Personal » (Options ») Add » Synchronisation » more details … (Update: Google GMail does not work anymore)
    2. Nokia 301 » Menu » Settings » Sync and backup » Sync with server » …
  • Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS)
    use Mail for Exchange

If you want to backup your phone, use either:

A) Nokia 301 » Menu » Settings » Sync and backup » Create backup,

B) old version of the Nokia Suite with latest Nokia Connectivity Driver, or 

C) PC Suite 7 with latest Nokia Connectivity Driver

In the PC Suite 7, the PC Sync app is blocked by CRC checks. Consequently, the synchronisation with Outlook does not work with the PC Suite 7. Anyone with a hack for that? Please report if you have any issues! We try to fix those together.
