> Ok, I just found that HMD updated the Spec Sheet of Nokia 220 4G and the OS name is now changed to Feature OS same as on the Nokia 3310 3G which also runs on Feature OS and not Smart Feature OS as we thought. This is powered by Java.
I may/am probably wrong but I don't think it will be even close to the java based accelerated os of the 3310 3G. As thought before that o.s. were connected to a cpu that it may not most probably be the one of the 220 4G. Also there's something I don't understand about those 16MB or ram that feels like a bit strange for a 2019 4G enabled mobile chipset.
There seems to be a major predictive text bug in the firmware for this phone. When typing in a key combination which could represent multiple words (e.g. "home"/"good"), there is no obvious way to select the desired word. On previous Nokia phones, this could be achieved using the "*" key, but on this phone, the "*" key activates the punctuation/symbol selection menu instead. Unless I'm missing something, this seems to be a pretty major bug/oversight?
Thanks for sharing! I've not had chance to use the 105 so didn't know about that. Have you asked support directly if there's a way to do what you're trying to do?
I can confirm this annoying bug. There is no way to change words while using predictive text. The star key should show symbols when the cursor is out of a word and change the prediction when writing a word. The problem is that it opens the symbols page no matter what, making it impossible for the user to go through the words list. Support doesn't help. Take note of this for any future phones, please!
Is there any way we could update this phone by ourselves, through a PC or something like that? If you'll ever decide to fix this, of course.
I don't know if you can fix it yourself, you'd need to hack into the software on the phone.
We will have to wait and see if the new 5310 has this bug too.
The fault must be on my sim card because the new nokia 105 also texts gobbledegook, not predictive text, just gibberish, putting up 3 characters for evry 1 I press.
Weird that this could be a fault with your SIM card. Have you tried another SIM card? Maybe ask support directly as it may be a known issue.
Help, please. I have an old Nokia with speaking alarm. Do the various 105 models have this feature. I bought a 106 model but it does not have this feature, which is very important for me.
Hi, I have a concern. My 105 came with a suspicious contact called #FUNZONE, which can not be deleted . I worry that my seller has put virus in phone. I wanted to confirm that it is nokia feature and not virus by seller.
It is not a virus. I am sure it came with your SIM card. Which SIM do you use?
If it is an Airtel SIM then it is their FunZone value added service number.
You should contact support directly about that https://www.nokia.com/phones/geo/support
@mbd45, no I don't think the new Nokia feature phones have the speaking alarm.
Thanks for replying Kartik Gada & madbilly.
The contact number exists without adding any SIM. I tried soft reset too, but the contact number did not get delete.
I will try sending email to https://www.nokia.com/phones/geo/support .
Hi guys. Sorry if thread hijacking.
I just bought a Nokia 105. Simple but good enough. I like the long battery life and the flashlight.
I'm disappointed to notice lack of timer. I can set the alarm but find no timer function. Very disappointing because I boil eggs for breakfast and a timer would have been useful.
Any plans to add that functionality?
It would be interesting to know which version newer 105 models that are sold in these days have installed as firmware and if there were been any improvements in speed, T9 sms usage and other things that I still find different from the previous model. As seen in the past some models has been released later with newer firmware version, in my country for example the 130 model has been seen later with the File Browser app when the one I got much before didn't have that feature. Both were sold in official local stores.
Is nokia 105 internet free? Is there a GPRS connection in 2019 version? If yes, is 2017 version of Nokia 105 free of GPRS connection?
