Hi aligator,

Did you restore to factory defaults after doing the firmware upgrade?
 
#3
how do u do that the firmware upgrade was from nokia itself it deleted my former system and installed this one
 
#4
unlike sony ericsson and others Nokia doesnt have a default settings button. You have to do some special keycombination when restarting im not sure exactly what

If you turn the phone on without the memory card, do you still get that message?

That's too bad and I guess Nokia themselves aren't much help either.

Does formatting the card on the desktop help?

I guess you're just going to have to wait for a new firmware version from Nokia then....

im fine with waiting but the question is why would they change the settings cause this didnt happen with older firmware system??

It's called a software regression or a bug.... Usually they are introduced accidently as a result of one or more changes to the code.

so its a mess-up and should be fixed in the next firmware right
It is possible it will be fixed. But it is not guarenteed. Make sure you notify Nokia via email or something of this. Maybe then it will be fixed. There is never any definate answers when it comes to things like this. It could be that part of the code that causes bugs and that is why it was removed.
