Updating your software.

It’s a good idea to update your phone’s software regularly. Updating your software gives you new features, keeps your phone running smoothly and can fix a lot of common problems. It should always be one of the first things you do if you’re having problems with your phone.

Before you update your phone, make sure your battery is fully charged. You should also make sure that you have backed up your personal data, like contacts that are stored on your phone.

Software updates need to be approved by mobile networks before your phone will allow you to update your software. If you're using a phone that you didn't get from us, an update may not be available at the same time as it would be for a phone that came from Three.

Your Nokia phone will automatically check and notify you if there's a new update. You can then download and install the software update to your phone. If you've switched this feature off then you should search for updates manually.

To check for updates manually:

  1. From the homescreen, slide your finger to the left to open the menu

  2. Tap Settings

  3. Tap phone update

  4. Tap check for updates

  5. If there's an update available, click Update

    The software on your phone will now be up to date.

If you,ve updated your software because you were having a problem with your device, has this fixed the problem?
