Software Updates (Version 4.51) for Nokia 206 and 206 Dual Released

Nokia is always known to provide regular software updates to its devices to eliminate any bugs and to add newer functionality. The same story continues as new software update for Nokia 206 and Nokia 206 Dual have started to roll out.

Nokia-Asha-206

The update is being called a major update and pushes the version number to 4.51 and adds WhatsApp support for the Dual SIM variant besides the other general tweaks and improvements.

What’s new in Nokia 206 4.51 Update

Talking about the change-log for the update, Nokia notes the following:

  • Improved phone call quality:  The calls will be clearer and if you were facing slight network issues, they’ll be eliminated.
  • Self-Portarit voice guidance has been improved.
  • Added WhatsApp (for dual sim) and YouTube launchers.
  • Other general performance improvements making the phone stable.

Updating Nokia 206

Note: Backup your phone [Menu> Settings> Sync and Backup> Create Backup] before initiating the update as you might lose some important data.
  1. Open Menu> Settings> Phone.
  2. Select Device/Phone Updates.
  3. Select Download Phone Software.
  4. Follow the further instructions.

    Hi my frnd,,
    Could u pls help.me with some file compression softwares that can compress very fast and small size

    • Narender Singh July 17, 2014 at 6:40 pm #

      I use 7-zip. You can only compress according to the compression capability of the files. Some files will get deeply compressed, while others will stay the same even after compression.

    How to solve the low memory problem. Every time I try to update my asha 206,it shows a memory related issue, how to free the memory please help me.

    • Narender Singh July 19, 2014 at 10:22 pm #

      Check out some comments. Resetting the phone helped some, but that’s a hit and trial method. Better visit Nokia Care and get your phone updated.

    Hi again,

    So i’ve been trying to install whatsapp from my MC. However the version pre-installed on the phone is stopping it from opening as it says version xxx.xx is already open. I have tried to format my phone but the pre-installed whatsapp still prevents it. On a side note after formatting all the other pre-installed apps revert/stay with the date 1/1/12 but whatsapp shows the last current date I updated it. Any suggestions?

    TIA

    John

    • Narender Singh July 29, 2014 at 10:22 pm #

      Strange for me then. Maybe you need to live with the original one then. I had strong hopes that resetting will reset WhatsApp back aswell :(

  15. Anil August 1, 2014 at 7:57 am #

    i have nokia 206.my phon hav internal storage problem.i saw phone specification in that showed that this phone have 32mb internal memory but my phone show only 3 mb internal memory.although i have not download any file in internal phone memory. please help me to improve internal space.

    • Narender Singh August 5, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

      The phone software is installed on the same 32GB, so it gets reduced to around 10MB when you buy the new phone. You need to visit a Nokia Care center to get your phone reset to factory and recover some storage.

    Using Nokia 206
    Error msg on whatsapp while sending image “image processing too many connections whatsapp error msg” HELP

    • Narender Singh August 21, 2014 at 5:39 pm #

      Can you please email WhatsApp Support? Have no idea about that.

  23. rrrrrrrrrt August 22, 2014 at 10:20 am #

    please help I am using Nokia S-40 series i.e., NOKIA 206. while sending images I am getting an error that ” Image Processing: too many connection” whereas I am using only one connection. And while downloading error is ” java.io.IO Exception: Too many connections.

    • Narender Singh August 22, 2014 at 2:08 pm #

      i really don’t have an idea about this. It may be that WhatsApp midlet is opening way-too-many connections and the java security settings don’t allow that. Whatever it is, probably WhatsApp support will be helpful – support@whatsapp.com
