The user agent string is included in the header sent by a browser when it connects to a specific page, and can be used by the page/server to return a page that is better optimised for the particular device. This article describes the user-agent header for different Nokia devices/browsers.

User Agent is defined by RFC 1945 and RFC 2068. This is a sample of the string:

//HTTP_USER_AGENT=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT; DigExt)


User Agent header rules

S60 3rd Edition

OSS Browser 3.0 (Web browser) - HTML, XHTML-MP

In S60 3rd Edition this browser is not the default browser. It may be featured in the Active Standby menu bar or in the menu grid, but it will not be opened when URL is selected in another application (e.g. message).

  • Original UA string on S60 3.0 Web browser:
    • User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.1; U; [en-us]) AppleWebKit/413 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413
  • "Rogue" UA strings that might ship on some uncorrected 3.0 devices:
    • User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.1; U; [en]; SymbianOS/91 Series60/3.0) AppleWebkit/413 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413
    • User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.1; U; en-us) AppleWebKit/413 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413 es61
  • Final UA string for newer S60 3.0 builds:
    • User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.1; U; [en]; Series60/3.0 NokiaE60/4.06.0) AppleWebKit/413 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413

Services (WAP) Browser - XHTML-MP, WML

The original S60 WAP browser is still the default browser in S60 3rd Edition, but has been renamed “Services” (in S60 2nd Edition it is called “Web”).

The Services browser User-Agent string follows the old format on most devices, but unfortunately there may be some variation

  • NokiaN73-2/3.0-630.0.2 Series60/3.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1
  • NokiaN73-2/2.0626 S60/3.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1

S60 3rd Edition FP2 devices can either use OSS Browser 3.2 or Browser 7.1. Early 3.2 devices were shipped with OSS Browser 3.2, but some of them may be upgraded to Browser 7.1 via firmware update. 7.1 browser is pre-installed in the following 3.2 devices: Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic, Nokia N86, Nokia E52, Nokia E55, and Nokia E72.
