How to Use the Nokia Phoenix Software


Nokia Phoenix Software, developed by Nokia, supports various CDMA, GSM, TDMA and WCDMA cell phones. You can use the program to update your phone’s firmware to the latest available firmware. To use this program, you need to have your phone’s USB data cable for successful flashing. The program will update the software on which your phone operates, and will remove bugs (if any). After flashing, you will notice a considerable increase in your phone’s performance and speed.

Go to “Start” > “Control Panel” and open “Add or Remove Programs.” From the list of programs, find “Nokia PC Suite,” “Nokia Software Updater,” “Nokia Care Suite,” “Nokia Modem Drivers,” “Nokia Connectivity Drivers” and any other Nokia application. Next to each of these applications, click the “Remove” button and uninstall it.

Restart your computer. Once the system loads, temporarily disable anti-virus software if it’s running on the computer. You can right-click its icon on the system tray, and select the “Disable” option. Charge your phone, and make sure your phone’s battery is 50 percent or more.

Download and install Phoenix Service Software. (See Resources.) When the file downloads, double-click the file and follow the onscreen instructions to complete installation. After installation, the application will go to “C:Program filesNokiaPhoenixProducts.” Start the software by going to “Start” > “Programs” > “Phoenix Service Software.”
