Nokia 500 update to Nokia Belle available at Nokia Suite? (Update: Yes, it’s official)

| February 15, 2012 | 37 Replies

Just yesterday we heard about Nokia Belle coming to Navifirm for the Nokia 500 – indicating that it would appear on official Nokia channels soon.

M. Hamdhan emailed us these screenshots that show Nokia Belle as an official Update for the Nokia 500.  I’m interested to see how Belle works without that GPU.

Any other Nokia 500 owners getting the update?


Cheers M. Hamdhan for the tip!

Update: Yes it’s official:

    I’ve just updated my nokia 500 to nokia belle. It works brilliant. It’s true… there are only 4 home screens but all issues that I had before, were now solved, so I’m pretty happy with my “new” phone. Thanks a lot.

    When I updated my N8 to belle.. it was just 125 MB in size (I followed *#7370# procedure before update).. and phone does have belle running good..
    Man.. here even 500 is 315 MB..
    What is going on? did I miss something or it was just 125 MB????

    • Gerii

      It’s because the N8 has less internal memory than all the other phones from the S^3+ range.

    • lordstar

      Yep, my belle update is 315mb big as welll. Downloaded the update for like 45 minutes!

      • Hamdhan

    I can’t update my Nokia 500 to Belle. After backing up the data, Ovi suite throws up an error indicating ‘Service unavailable’. I called up Nokia support in India today.

    They checked and told me that my phone is eligible for an upgrade but not sure why upgrade does not happen for my phone. I am asked to take my phone to a Nokia service center now. This is irritating!!

    I Can Upgrade Your Nokia 500!. The North American Nokia 500 phones from Mobilicity, Windmobile, T-Mobile come factory installed with the old and outdated ‘Nokia Symbian Anna’ phone Operating system.
    For some weird Reason, North American Nokia 500’s have Been blocked by the phone providers from Upgrading to the Newer and smoother “Nokia Belle’ phone Operating system, which has a way better performance for smart touch screen phones like the Nokia 500.
    This old operating sytem makes the Nokia 500 Phone, to have poor performance. Some times poor touch screen response, crushing, hanging up etc.
    But with your phone’s operating system upgraded to the new ‘Nokia Belle Operating system’, your phones performance will greatly increase and you will gain additional features to make you enjoy the full potential of your Nokia 500 finally. So dont get frustrated with it.
    Bring your phone and $20 with you, wait 30 minutes and your phone is upgraded to the newer software system.
    I also Upgrade Nokia 5230. It takes 20 Minutes and a fee of $10.
    I also Unlock the Nokia 500 and unlock Nokia 5230 both for $20 to unlock and it takes 24 hrs.
