So, if you have one of the three devices (701,700 or 603) you can update your phone by just going to the menu and opening the software update app, or either via the Nokia suite.
NO!! This Feature Pack 1 update is not available for the 1st Gen Symbian^3 phones (N8, E7, C7, C6-01, 500) because of their low technical profile. However, their are some more updates and bug fixes still to come for these devices. But the upcoming big updates for Symbian, like FP2 and Carla (screenshots of which are leaked already – See here) etc will not come to these devices.
Anyways, if you are a 701 or 700 or 603’s owner, then this update’s for you. So update your phone and enjoy!! 🙂
