See This Video For More Details Of Symbian Anna
To update your device to Symbian Anna you need to follow TWO unique steps:
Step1. Firstly you need to update Core OS firmware to v22(Anna) using OTA, e.g just type *#0000#
[note]Before updating your device, it is Highly recommended that take the backup of your device and make sure your device is fully charged and having High speed data connection [/note]
Step2. Then you will get a current firmware detail screen , now from menu option select “Check for updates” and wait for application to connect to Nokia update server, it will show you available update data like following screenshot.You can also do this by connecting your device to PC and then update it but I STRONGLY RECOMMENDED YOU TO DO IT FROM YOUR MOBILE their are some issues in OVI suit update 🙁 Also use 3G or WiFi to download update.
Step3. When it downloads all data, it will restart your mobile, wait for white screen of update to complete all process given below. Your mobile will be updated to new Anna firmware.
Step1. Updating the core firmware only changes the OS specification and structure, so to make it fully functional and compatible with all applications(including Quickoffice and Adobe reader); we need to install few of application specific updates. To do this, navigate your device MENU->APPLICATION->S/W UPDATE.
Step2. You will see 2 parts of Symbian Anna 1/2 as well as some social and ovi store update; select all and update it . It will take a time to download and install all data (approx. data size 67Mb), if any update fails restart your mobile and try again.
Step3. Successful Completion will reboot your phone and then you will see OVI activation page. Please provide your login details or register if you are new. That’s it !!! Enjoy Symbian Anna. See following screen shots
Screenshot 1: In this, you need to provide your login credentials of OVI.
Screenshot 2: Wait for Application to activate your OVI to grant access to OVI services.
I saw many people did only FIRST Process and left second one, so that they faced error message like “Phone Setup:Feature Not Supported” during start-up and also some other problems
