Symbian Belle User Manuals (PDF)

| February 5, 2012 | 34 Replies

For those interested, here are user manuals for Nokia Belle for the Nokia N8, E7, C7 and C6. I couldn’t find a mention of Belle but it does have new information such as that pull down status (page 23).



Cheers Johnny for the tip!

    It seems like the only thing missing is the belle update.

    • FireDragon

      True that. πŸ™‚

  • Blink

    Microsoft Stores in the U.S. are taking deposits on lumia 900s. Also, the stores are running a promotion that if you buy a windows phone, you get free zune music for 1 year, a $120 value. Waiting for word on the unlocked 800 with some sort of bundle deal.

  • Paul Grenfell

    Been on N8 support page for ages..taken this long to be noticed?
    Just where is Belle anyway?

    • Dalago

      In Navifirm or in a lot of webs, I’m using belle since first leak, I flashed 1000 times and i’m very happy!! try it!!

  • reptile

    Another peculiar thing I’ve noticed here in the US is that Newegg stopped selling a lot of Nokia phones for a while. I wasn’t even able to see the Nokia N8 on their site at all. This had originally led me to believe that the phone had been discontinued…

    But now they’ve restocked a lot of those older phones, which leads me to believe that this newer set had Belle pre-installed. I’ve been meaning to check with their customer support to confirm, but have been too busy πŸ™

    I wish they’d thought through the status bar a bit more (a pretty typical request when it comes to Symbian UI design :P). E.g. the first three buttons (Mobile data, WiFi and Bluetooth) are replicated immediately below in the Notifications section.

    Instead, we could have had three other useful buttons. I can think of two I would love to have there–a screen rotation lock and a brightness dimmer.

    What four buttons would you like there?

    • reptile

      Power-Saving Mode!

    • Not true. They are not exactly replicated. e.g. if Bluetooth is turned off, there would be no option to turn it on. You would have to go to menu–>settings

      Also, toggling mobile data and wifi would take at least 3 taps going through the options below.

      But I agree, they should have provided an option to choose which switches you need.

      Maybe with Belle SP1 or Carla?

      • Lloydo

        Thanks for the clarification Ronit.

        Still, I wouldn’t use those three buttons very much. On my N8, Wi-fi and Bluetooth are always on and so is Mobile data (unless I’m roaming). For me a better solution would be one button e.g. Connectivity which slides down the three normal buttons (or something along those lines). Leaving room for other functions which I think would be used a lot more.

        • arts

          how is your battery life btw? Just curious.

          • Lloydo

            It’s probably around two days now. But I barely use my phone any more!

    • deep space bar

      they might add that and i hope they do like have all the notification on in the status bar instead of a few and a few more things

      • MontyN95

        Nope! Some Notifications (e.g chat messages from whatsapp) don’t sure up in the pull down bar!

        Was not well thought out at all. Only thing I really use it for is for quick access to text messges, (just as easy as pressing the menu button and tappin on the pop up actually)
        and quickly putting phone on silence! Others are useless!!
        Wifi/Bluetooth: Always on
        Mobile data: Always on
        Music Player: Got the widget!

        I’ll prefer screen orientation and 3G on/off

  • arts

    hmm maybe volume as well? But with screen estate limited as it is, i doubt there is space. And for my android tab the notification buttoms can be swipe around. Maybe they should do that too!

    • DM

      Here’s a tip; Nokia put special buttons on side of all their phones, they called them volume buttons/rockers, but I can’t imagine what a volume + or – button might do, turn wifi off? Who knows…

      • arts

        its in reply to something else, but opera mini won’t let me post it correctly.

  • Shriek

    Well this in Nokia teasing us with the Bella updates once again

  • Ali

  • It’s not C6 but C6-01

    microsoft developers said on their community forum:
    -Nokia is gng to kill symbian in Jan 2013.

    -no Donna OS for nokia fans

    -Steve Balmer has instructed Stephen Elop to kill symbian as early as possible because WIN7 sales were very poor in 2011. In order to launch mid range WIN devices, microsoft will release WIN apollo at mobile world congress and WIN 8 by MAY.

    -we will take over Nokia in march 2013 once WIN8 becomes a potential third ecosystem

    -supporting symbian till 2016 is just to maintain symbian loyal fans. In fact, 2012 is the LAST & LAST year for symbian.

    -N8 successor is the last symbian phone launching in july with carla os.

    SAD NEWS FOR ALL OF US πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

      please post the link to that message

    • Cod3rror

      Great news if true!

      Symbian needs to be finished already, it’s a zombie, shoot it, let this zombie rest.

      Release the last phone, and be done with it.

    • Alex Kerr

      And what exactly makes you believe all that?

      How about some Symbian developer said to me that the Microsoft deal is over, WinPho has been declared a failure and Symbian is being reinstated fully across all Nokia lines, high end and low end, Elop is to be sacked immediately and Nokia are making Qt the 3rd ecosystem.

      Why should you believe me?

      Why should I believe some random people on a Microsoft developer forum?

      Anyone can say anything.

    • Alex Kerr


      Only when you believe anything you read on the internet… πŸ˜‰

      • DM

        Exactly, these retards read anything on the Internet and instantly believe it too be true without any rational though whatsoever.

        +2 to you sir.

      Completely untrue (and so is everything else you wrote).
