List of bugs in Nokia C6


The purpose of this post is to list all the bugs that i have encountered in my Nokia C6 phone which i bought two months back. All these bugs are persistent and keep bugging me often.I have already installed all available firmware updates.

1. On startup, phone displays the error message "System Error". This error message occurs every time the phone is restarted.

2.When Maps is minimized and opened again, i get the error "Not enough memory to perform operation".

3.When maps is not properly closed,and i open it again, nothing happens. I have to restart the phone to fix this bug.

4.While composing and sending a message, when i click the Send button, the phone gives the error "Unable to send".This happens at least twice daily. If this error occurs, it is not possible to send the message again.Nothing happens if i send again.Phone just says "Sending" and does nothing.It is not even possible to save the typed message.If i save in drafts, it will be saved as an empty message only. The only option to save the typed data is to copy/paste from the message screen. This error is a very annoying one.

5.Wifi stays ON all the time wasting phone battery charge.Once i configure the wifi, it connects even if i manually go to Settings->Connectivity->WLAN->Wifi hotspot->Disconnect. I got tired of manually disconnecting, only to find that it connects after a few minutes again without my permission.There should be option to turn OFF wifi.

Update: This problem was due to a configuration error.See this article, Turn off wifi in Nokia phone.

6. Sometimes, while making a call from the inbox by selecting a message and clicking the green call button, phone says "Call not allowed".If this happens, the only way to recover from this error is to restart the phone, otherwise it keeps on giving the same error message.

7. GPS fails to connect most of the times. Only after repeated attempts at restarting and reopening Maps, GPS connects.

//Screenshots not available for all bugs since they are not easy to replicate.

With Nokia favoring Windows platform, it remains to be seen whether the already neglected Symbian platform will get any attention, if at all ,  from Nokia.
