    Nokia E71 firmware update via bluetooth

    Hello

    The reason am asking for this is that the USB jack in my phone seems to be broken.. so ive been using bluetooth to connect my phone to my PC
    I was able to download some maps via the bluetooth connection (takes some more time but what can i do!!)
    Whenever I try to do a firmware update I get a message to connect via USB.. so is there any other way to do this ?

    Thank you

    No can do (not with Nokia Software Updater). If you can't use USB, then you have to ask a Nokia authorized service/repair center do it.

    OTA updates are not supported for older devices, however a Nokia Care Point can probably help, since the device has an alternative flasher connector. And the broken USB jack may be fixed too.

    Anecdotal fact: OTA support was initially added to Series 60 2.6 (S60 2nd Edition Feature Pack 2), and the first device with latent support for it was the 6630 that was the first device using that version.

    It wasn't, however, until the N80 (one of the first S60 3rd Edition devices) that it was actually tried out in actual use (by consumers). Then it took a good while (a couple of more years) before it was really put in use by Nokia on a wider scale.

    Better to be carefull when updating E71 firmware to newer one.
    There is possibility, that you loose bluetooth or/and fm radio.
