    nokia 301 error establishing secure connection

    1. Create a New Folder on your desktop and call it whatever you like.

    2. Open notepad on your computer.

    3. Copy the text below into the Notpad file. (I got this from some website as they were using it for smething else but it does work so thanks to them or thanks to you if this is yours)

    <?xml version="1.0"?>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


    <title>Install root CA</title>




    <a href="der1.cer">Download a CA Cert1</a>

    <a href="der2.cer">Download a CA Cert2</a>

    <a href="der3.cer">Download a CA Cert3</a>

    <a href="der4.cer">Download a CA Cert4</a>

    <a href="der5.cer">Download a CA Cert5</a>

    <a href="der6.cer">Download a CA Cert6</a>

    <a href="der7.cer">Download a CA Cert7</a>

    <a href="der8.cer">Download a CA Cert8</a>

    <a href="der9.cer">Download a CA Cert9</a>

    <a href="der10.cer">Download a CA Cert10</a>

    <a href="der11.cer">Download a CA Cert11</a>




    4. Save the Notpad file as type ALL FILES but when naming it just call it cert.html and save it to the folder you created on your desktop earlier.

    5. Click on the "Download a root package for VeriSign Certificates (roots.zip file)" from https://www.symantec.com/page.jsp?id=roots and unzip, then rename all the .cer to der1.cer, der2.cer etc. to the same Desktop folder.

    6. When saving the first Certificate to the folder call it der1 ((make sure not to take out the file extension eg .cer)) then the second der2, third der3 and so on and so on till you get to der11. (Dont worry this will not rename the certificate when it installs on your phone.)

    Example of what the files in your Desktop folder should be called der1.cer, der2.cer etc etc.

    7. Now transfer the whole folder from your Desktop to your Mobile phone. (I did this by using Nokia PC Suite.)

    8. When the folder with the certificates and hmtl we made have been transfered to you phone navigate using your phone to that folder.

    9. Go into the folder and open the cert.html file. (Your browser will now open a page with 11 download links available)

    10. Now all you have to do is click on each link and accept each certificate remembering to save and they will install on your phone. (On my 6500 Classic i can check this by Navigating through my phone to Menu>Settings>Security>Authority Certificates)

    Notes:- Some errors you may receive when trying to download the certificates through your phone browser may be Already Exists, Expired Certificate and the most annoying is Corrupted Certificate.

    Already Exists - Shouldt allow you to save (DO NOT SAVE IF IT ALLOWS YOU)

    Expired Certificate - (DO NOT SAVE)

    Corrupted Certificate - Install the certificate on your computer first, then go to Tools>Internet Options>Content>Certificates.

    (save the certificate to other people tab) Browse for the certificate you installed then export it in DER format to the Desktop Folder you created then start process over again to get it onto your phone.

    Remember to delete any certificates as you go that you have already installed so you dont get mixed up.

    Any issues reply and i will do what i can to help and if anyone has Hutchinson 3G Root Certificates please let me know.

    Does not help, because that is a code-signing certificate, isn’t it? If you still need it, just say so. With the above procedure, you can install certificates for TCP sockets like SSL/TLS in HTTPs.

    Your instructions contain a Nokia 6500 classic, the subject line does include a Nokia 301. If you face that error from the subject line, you should rather go for this guide or the Nokia Software Recovery Tool, because the file system of your Nokia Series 40 might got corrupted and you run into more issues on the long run.
