The Nokia N86 8MP gets v30 firmware update
Arguably the last firmware date for the Nokia N86 8MP, but extremely welcome anyway, version 30 firmware is now available via Nokia Software Update and soon over the air in most regions. The usual caveats about network-branded phones getting this at a later date apply, as do taking precautions by backing up first - just in case. More details and screens below.

Read on in the full article.

Good news! :)

What makes you say "arguably the last" though Steve?

slitchfield 15-04-2010 12:38 PM

Only because my sources told me two updates ago that there might be two more updates. And this is the second 8-)

Using Mail for Exchange and as the go-between, the N86 now enables ongoing syncs of Calendar, Contacts and Email as instructed WITHOUT the silly annoying message being thrown up at every subsequent re-sync as reported at in December 2009. At last!
The Email Setup still had to be 'duped' however, into allowing a MfE account to be setup - put a 'bogus' email address in during setup to force Nokia Messaging not to take over and subsequently not allow MfE for Contacts and Calendar.
The N86 is now much more usable for me as more than just a telephone, top-notch camera and Symbian plaything. It talks properly to the Google Servers (via a 3rd party, granted).

Not For Orange Users
:mad:My N86, on contract with Orange, is still on V11.043. Software update claims that the software is all up to date. Come on Orange, get your act together!

How about free RAM and free phone memory on C:?

v21 also had v2.1.0 of Nokia Messaging steve. If v30 has the same version, then I don't think the client has been update.
There's no option to enable HTML view by default, is there?

OTA may be a little while longer. Check NSU.

Hi Tramfan, don't get your hopes up about Orange approving anything after v11.043.

I have twice contacted them about updates given the massive improvements around Face Detection and Free Ovi Maps 3.0.3 (I finally decided to install the version for the 6730 Classic) and was told that they didn't have any ideas when and indeed if they would ever be approving any further updates for the N86 as it was now classed as a discontinued handset.

I can't even update the software or applications using FOTA because the server connection times out and I can't edit any profiles because they're hidden. It worked when I updated from 10.086 to 11.043 but has been broken ever since.

I've been an Orange contract user for nearly 15 years but the way that they've been treating their customers as regards handset updates is atrocious. You end up tied to an 18 or 24 month contract with a phone that is stuck on the buggy initial or early versions and the only option is to get the handset swapped out for another identical one.

A store staff member told me that they will swap you onto a new handset of your choice after 3 replacements but to be honest, there are no suitable replacements at the moment.
