How to update software
Update wirelessly (OTA)
You can update your Nokia phone wirelessly Over the Air (OTA). With OTA updates you don’t need any cables or computer; you can simply download and install the update using your phone and an internet connection.
Software updates from Nokia are safe to install, and your settings, apps, photos, and text messages remain safe and sound. Updates are free of charge, but to download the update, you need an internet connection. If your phone supports Wi-Fi, we recommend using it to avoid mobile data transmission costs.
Step 1. Select Menu > Settings > Phone > Device updates.
Step 2. Select “downl. phone sw”. The phone will notify you if there is an update available. If an update was found, follow the instructions shown on your phone.
Step 3. Installation of the update will take a few minutes and you will not be able to use your phone during this time. The phone will restart itself when the update is finished.
