    Can this be download from the internet and installed on the phone and do I
    have to have a data cable for this ?
    Thanks for any advice

    Hi Ian,

    In short, you can't update firmware by yourself, I mean you can but you
    have to buy special flashing equipment and mentioned equipment is just to
    expensive for personal purpose, to learn more about flashing chk out below

    Well actually yes, but you need more than just a cable. Unless you have
    the right equipment, which costs in excess of 200 for a quality device,
    you risk wrecking the phone.

    Take it to a Nokia service centre and let them take the risk, it will cost
    you less.

    And since when has a 6310 been a DCT3 handset?

    The 6310 is DCT4. If you don't care about the handset and want to waste
    your time & money you could buy a cheap "China" flasher for about 25 that
    has no support and is so buggy that you stand a very good chance of
    rendering the phone useless. To do the job properly requires decent
    flashing kit such as UFS.

    Re: Firmware upgrade = how do you do it?

    You need an adapter, cable, and an interface, and a program with it.
    You should give it up of course, and rather ask your nearest service center
    and they can upgrade it for you, maybe they'll charge you 50 dollars or
    something.

    Around 15 in the UK. Cheaper than 200 plus for the equipment to do it
    yourself.
