    or suggest me a better software. .
    please help me. .

  • Pls my data conection is on and workn wel. Bt whenevr i try downloadn d software what i get is “no netwrk connctn, unable 2 download. Can som1 pls tel me wht’s happnin?

  • Are you fed up with pre-installed apps/tones/wallpapers/bookmarks of your Nokia java phone and want to delete without help of any PC? Here is complete process…

    I will guide you step by step…

    ๏ First we talk about tones/wallpapers/bookmarks. For better understanding, I’ll guide by example…
    Let a preinstalled file in our Gallery in Tones folder is Nokia.aac, and we want to delete it, so first copy any file (image/tone/any other text file) in memory card, and rename it Nokia.aac by MiniCommander or BlueFTP or UC Browser’s file manager. Now go to Gallery > Memory card (not My apps > Memory card) and mark Nokia.acc and move it to Tones. (Do not directly move, just mark and move). You will see – “Item already exist”. Now go to Tones and go to Nokia.aac, and go to option, you will see delete option highlighted. Do same with wallpapers/other tones also. You can delete multiple files by renaming and mark & moving multiple files at once.

    ๏ Delete pre-installed apps…
    You need to make backup file of apps and games. Rename backup file with MiniCommander or BlueFTP .NBF to .zip and open this file. Inside this file, open Java > Collections . There is many folders like cherry_India_private, ovi_private, facebook_private etc. So first copy any file (image/tone/any other text file) in memory card, and rename it cherry_India (do not write cherry_India_private) or as your apps by MiniCommander or BlueFTP or UC Browser’s file manager. Go to My apps > Memory card (not Gallery > Memory card) and rename cherry_India to cherry_India.jar. Now mark it and move it to collection or games or where your app exists. (Do not directly move, just mark and move). You will see – “Item already exist”. Now go to app and go to option, you will see delete option highlighted. Do same with other apps also. You can delete multiple apps by renaming and mark & moving multiple files at once.

    ๏ Delete pre-installed bookmarks…
    Send your bookmark to any china mobile…there a file will be like 60_games_bookmark.bmk (something like this or somewhat). Then rename any file to this name in your gallery and do same process…

    For deleting Introduction, rename any file to Introduction.nfl and do the same…

  • 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.

    • 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

  • Hello sir, i had downloaded whatsapp on sd in for nokia 206 dual sim but when i am opening the whatsapp its showing a message ‘ version 4.51 is already open’ . What should i do. Kindly suggest

  • hai sir

    • 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.

  • 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

    • hehe.. Just the difference of l and I. Anyways, good that you made it to work. Enjoy buddy πŸ™‚ Make sure you installed WhatsApp to the SD card as otherwise you might face some low memory issues later.

  • Hi my frnd,,

  • i used nokia 206 but i noticed that my whatsapp is corrupted&i tried to update it,though it deduct my data&displayed download failed.If i reset,won’t it affect my SD?What about phone memory full repitition?HELP ME OUT

    • Do you hate a slow data connection? Usually that is the cause of the failed download.
      As about resetting, the reset does not delete data from your SD card, however to still remain on the safer side, you should remove the SD card before starting the reset. The phone memory will however be cleaned and most of the user added content will be removed.
      Do note that if you have apps installed on the SD card, they may or may not work again depending on their security settings.

  • Hi, sir i m using nokia 206. I updated v4.5 and i did mistake when whatsapp is default memory that time i forgot to move app to memory card.

Even i rested also next 1week whatsapp memory will going to 4 to 5mb again i hv to reset pls. How to get phone software again.

  • Hi Narender
    One little bit of information to add – the micro SD card is being recognized, since I can access the pics stored there by the store guy. Also, the phone shows that the micro SD card has 7.3 GB free space, but yet, it does not back up to the SD card.
    Thanks!

  • Hi Narender

    Thanks for the detailed review and the troubleshooting tips. I actually got 206 Dual for my dad. The guy in the store transferred some of the photos from his old phone into the My Received Files folder, and some of the remaining ones into a new micro SD card. Sadly, I am not able to transfer the pics in My Received Files folder, and that has clogged the internal memory of the phone. How do I fix this (I cannot factory reset without losing the pics I presume)? Please help.
    Also, is there a way to make the SD card the default storage for all messages and photos taken by the phone camera?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Okay. When you go to the Files and open the received folder, don’t you see the copy/move option upon pressing the left soft key? It mush show up along with the options of selecting multiple files at once and then initiating the copy/move.

      You cannot store the text messages to your SD card, but yep camera pics can be sent directly to the SD. Just open camera, select options and there must be an option to set the default storage, either in the options or the settings sub-menu. I can’t quote the exact option as they are different in different phones.

  • i did factory reset,i open my apps but same thing” phone got switched off. why is this happening again and again?

  • sir, i have succesfully but my apps is not opening. i can’t access,whenever i try phone automatically switched. plz tell me what to do? using asha 206

  • Hey! I have nokia 206 dual sim phone i am suffering from a problem.
    when ever i open any type of browser for eg.uc browser or opera or nokia express
    an error comes its written that “APPLICATION ACESS SET TO NOT ALLOWED” why is this error arising….
    any solutions please help..!!!!

    • You need to change the access settings of the app. On the apps page, select the app. Press options> app access and set the options properly.

  • Hey, Narendra I m using Nokia asha 206 and its software version is 4.52. Well,my nokia phone is working great but i have the query of updating the new version because my previous version get expired of whats app which is pre installed in the phone. Actually,my phone memory get full nd when I tried to upgrade my whts app it shows to delete some items because it requires 1.7mb space but i have no idea what to delete because in phone memory there is nothing else instead of some pre installed apps and few games and ringtones which are system file and which are nt able to be deleted. So,I am totally fused and it seems a big trouble for me. I don’t know what should i do for that. So, you please suggest and leave a reply as soon as possible. Hope ur suggestion will prove to be best as well as helpful for me.

    • Hey Monika
      The only think you can do is to rest your phone to factory and then update it. Better will be to reset it and then install WhatsApp to the SD card by side-loading instead of using the default one which stores the data into the phone’s memory.

  • I have downloaded new version of software for my Nokia 206 dual sim but i cant install it because it is showing 1.6 mb needed.
    Can you give some solution?

    • Read the other comments. Some people have reported that resetting the phone helps πŸ™‚ Else you always have Nokia are to help you.

  • tanks Narhender

    i reset my phone by *#7370# code then i download new update now it require 168 kb free space more
    and nothing is left for deleting .

  • But when In try to download it again from other sites, it is not allowing me to download by saying that my phone does not supports whatsapp…:(

    • Just hit this link directly on your phone – http://www.whatsapp.com/s40/WhatsApp.jad
      Be sure to not to open the factory installed app or it might not let you install this one. If nothing works, download the jar and jad file of WhasApp on your computer and transfer them to your SD card then open the app using your phone.

      • Hi Narender, 2 Questions:

        If I installed the whatsapp app on my MC, can I still use the shortcut on the main menu to access it, and will the messages still come up on the screen as normal.

        Do I need to reformat my phone in order to use whatsapp from the MC?

        Thanks
        John

        • Hey John
          AFAIK, the icons on the homescreen (not the main menu) of Nokia 206 are editable. So you can easily change them to bring your other favorite apps as quick shortcuts.
          As about installing WhatsApp, you can first try by Deleting the account (from within WhatsApp) and then sideloading the WhatsApp jar and jad files on the memory card. If that still opens the previously installed app, you will need to reset (format) your phone. Do take a backup if you decide to reset it.

  • Hi Narendar, Hope you remember me. I have the same mb issue before and restored my nokia 206 dual 2 times to get the whatsapp installed again. but again after 1 month, am stuck with the same issue “1.2 mb needed” πŸ™ Please suggest any idea, whether i need to restore it again and again or…:(

    • Hey buddy πŸ™‚ As I already said, you need to somehow install it on the Memory Card instead of the phone memory. Next time, restore your phone and then just download whatsapp to your memory card. Don’t open the one supplied by them by default.

  • Read all your comments unfortunately none of them worked for me but yes one person told the solution no body noticed it it will 100% install your update ia am just repeating it.

    1) Hard reset your phone by *#7370#.
    2) Format memory card from phone.
    3) Check for updates and download it.
    4) Install Enjoy !!!!!!

    • Bhai mere pas nokia 206 mobile hai, us ka software urr gaya tha to jab pc se sw karwaya to wo 3.58 2012 hai, magar ab mera new sw update nhi ho rha. jab setting>phone.sett> device updat> down sw. me jata hun to, no new software update likh k ata hai, help me

    Make backup of your contacts, messages, etc….

    install your software update.
    then restore from backup you made earlier..

    *** Phone Number Removed ***

  • Hello evryone
    I have a nokia 206 (black)
    Software version 4.52
    I recieved whatsapp preinstalled
    After the OTA sw update the preinstalled apps increases and nimbuzz etc also got updated leaving my fon memory almost absent…I have nothing on the fon not evn a phone no. Or sms. Now when I put a memory card and try to open the music player it says ” not enough memory to run music player” i visited a nokia care and said your preninstlled apps leav no space…heights of bloatware , the nokia people responded by saying “sir preinstalled apps cannot be deleted you have to live with it,,,” I am jst hating da fon… its slow as fffff…. and fon memory is full with bloatware,,,, you cant even remove them via a usb bcoz it dsnt have one! Hahhahahhahahahah
    No wonder nokia is biting the dust. If anyone finds a solution let me know. Plz

  • I restored my phone 4-5 times.Deleted all the unwanted things from the phone memory.But when I am trying to install new software updates in my phone,its showing that 1.2MB of space is still required.Plz help me out

  • i got one ASHA 206 dual sim with inbult watsapp software but it i not opening…so wat should i do for tat..?? so tat i can register my number.My current upade of software is 4.52.

    • It needs to work. Its just that WhatsApp continues to update the features and push new updates. Each pushed version has an expiry date after which it should be updated. The phone as very low internal memory and installing WhatsApp on the phone memory is a big mistake from Nokia, but nothing that we can do.
      Leave it. I guess we will be able to find a way to make it work πŸ˜€

  • Thanks for your response. I have cleared the phone memory but the preinstalled apps and games are still remaining and showing “system files can’t be deleted”.
    also I have tried installing whatsapp to my memory card. It downloads. but showing the messafe “Not supported”. πŸ™ πŸ™ very sad !! πŸ™

    • From where did you download WhatsApp? It will be a big work here if you re-install WhatsApp and you’ll also lose your present saved chats. But because they are already like lost, try the following process.
      1. If you are able to open WhatsApp somehow, Goto settings and delete your account which will clear all the data as well as the chats.
      2. Download the two files from the following links:
      http://www.whatsapp.com/s40/WlWhatsApp.jad
      http://www.whatsapp.com/s40/WlWhatsApp.jar
      3. Transfer both of them to your phone’s memory card. You’d need some card reader to do this or put in your memory card into another phone as your phone does not have a USB Port to connect to the PC.
      4. Browse your memory card in your phone and Open this newly transferred file.
      5. Let’s see if it works

      • I tried to download from some other site..the thing is whatsapp is not opening and showing the message to “upgrade”…. anyway i will try the steps you have given. Thanks for that. Another doubt, I have read that Nokia 206 Dual sim does not supports Whatsapp…. Is that true???

        • Doubt? Come on you’ve been using WhatsApp in your phone already πŸ˜›
          However, to what I know, on these phones WhatsApp does not function well in the background πŸ˜€ Try those links. I guess it’ll work πŸ™‚

  • Whatsapp was preinstalled on my Nokia 206 Dual when I bought it 4 months before. but now it is showing like your whatsapp has expired and upgrade…. but it does not allow to upgrade it showing the messafe “1.6 MB Memory needed”. but cannot delete the apps and games. please suggest on how can i upgrade whatsapp?? Do this 206 dual supports whatsapp anymore??

    • Yeah it supports. But the issue is that your Phone Memory is all full. Try removing all that you can from your phone memory./ Else just install a new copy of WhatsApp in your memory card and forget the original one.
      BTW, are you able to move it to the memory card?

  • Hi there,
    I’ve got some trouble to update because of the memory problem but figured it out after some brainstorming πŸ™‚

    Now that’s updated, I’ve got a problem with the internet browser, it doesn’t want to start either with the shortcut on the “desktop” or by the “menu”. Does anyone got the same problem? All other applications start and update themselves.

    Cheers

  • Back up your contacts and delete all of them.

    Delete all wall paper and newly downloaded App not in Memory card/ move them to Memory card.

    Then Try install. If it doesn’t work, delete all wall paper

  • Guys look, I want to help you out because I was confused just like you are now, and I did it just as the following steps:

    1- Create a backup of your data(if you want).
    2- Just delete all personal data such as Images, messages etc
    3- Delete some system files such as Wallpapers, one of two themes, nokia ringtone and any app you may have installed yourself.

    !!!Do not discard the update, because you may have to download it again, just click Options-Install later.

    4- Go to Menu-Settings-Rest. fact. sett.-All (this will reset your phone to factory default, it means that it will delete everything that’s not system protected, this makes some free space for your update to install.)

  • Yeahh..it works. Thanks for this trick @anmol sharma. You just have to create a backup of your data, than restore your phone and after it finishes restoring, you’ll be able to install the update..

  • I just tried it on my Nokia 206 Dual sim and it works. I needed whatsapp after my girlfriend broke my Blackberry out of anger. The only phone she left was my 206 that has no whatsapp

  • Hello. Pleas I keep getting “No network connection. Unable to download.” even though I could access the internet via the browser and apps… Please what could be responsible for this?

    • ram.you can delete wallpaper. one of the two themes. messages. I m currently using 4.52. but 4.51 seems to be more stable.

      • Anmol, plz want to know if u also had the ‘MB needed’ problem. Mine needs more memory. I restore settings sooo many times but same old problem. Help me plz

      • Whattta Solution !!! Really “Anmol” . . . . NO MATCH !!!

        Well, the trick worked for me at the 1st attempt only.

        Just downloaded my update Over The Air.
        Backed up my phone data.
        Restored my phone.
        Started the Update.

        The phone shuts down & starts up with a blacked out screen with a status runner (usually white)

        Phone got updated in approx 10 – 15 mins.
        Just be patient & u r there with ur updated phone.

        Thanks Anmol for this Anmol Method !!!
