    Nokia X2-01 is also a good phone with good specifications in low budget, it is very simple to connect it with pc, just download the compatible(latest version) OVI-Suite from nokia website or you can also use the pc-suite come along with it, but i suggest you to use OVI-suite that give you better satisfaction...

  21. Dear Rishi

    I am unable to connect my nokia x2-01 to pc. Firstly i connected to pc through data cable and i opened ovi-suite which was installed by me. Right here everything is fine, the problem is when i say connect in the ovi-suite, it says like this:-
    Failed to establish a network connection.
    Failed to connect to the network. Unable to connect to the selected mobile device. Restart your device and connect it to the computer again.

    This was my problem. Please solve my problem.
    I look forward to your response.

    install OVI suite first
    then connect your phone to pc via data cable
    then the OVI suite automatically detects it,otherwise click on "tools" option> then "add new device" and follow instructions,when your phone successfully connected then again from "tools" menu choose "options"> "connect to internet"
    then choose home country as -india
    home operator- airtel ,aircell etc.
    or
    use manual settings in case your mobile operator is not listed
    for manual setting refer to my another blog....

    one more thing first make sure that your system is free from viruses bcoz some times due to viruses mobile unable to connect to pc..

    have a nice day

  24. dear jagdeesh
    viruses generally infects files in the c:/ drive so formating will remove it, but some viruses like watermark.exe or regserv.exe/newfolder.exe replicates themselves to other drives and whenever u click on the infected file your system is again infected.
    i suggest you to download a utility "Trojan remover 6.8.1" and also install some latest antivirus software like quickheal/Mcafee enterprise/Avira/avast etc and scan the system.....no antivirus program is able to give u 100% protection still many users thinks that installing a antivirus is enough to solve there problem....but my suggestion is that, whenever you install any antivirus program optimize it for best performance by maintaining proper settings.....

  26. dear Ashok the above process also works with windows 7 perfectly.......but the only change is that, the driver you are using in your case(64-bit O.S.) should be of 64-bit......remaining process is almost same...

  28. Dear Sss first thanks for showing interest...
    when you select ".ovi suite" from options then actually by default you are choosing a serial port(.com) mode ...... from your problem it seems that you made a successful connection between mobile and PC.....but there is no data exchange at all.......in this situation first check the GPRS access in mobile...if it is ok....then check your data cable by accessing mass storage mode...........when you sure about that.....then try again ...if still ur problem persists........then download OVI Suite compatible with ur mobile from nokia site(not PC suite as I personally observed that in some models of nokia like 2700 series PC suite is not working properly ) ,so if you sure that ur mobile and data cable is ok....then don't waste time and download OVI suite......if ur problem still persists ...then again write to me.....
    have a nice day
