Nokia Diagnostics’ first version helped you know your device’s software version, phone version and other mundane details about your handset. The latest update to this software goes one step further and lets people perform tests for their phones and diagnose the problems they might be having.

Diagnosis under process…

The pre-requisite is that you need to have the latest version of your OS, which means your phone should be updated. In case you’re wondering what tests are included, here is a small list:

  • vibrating alert
  • battery charger
  • cameras (both main and front-facing one)
  • screen
  • earpiece
  • microphone
  • loudspeaker and headset.

There are more tests that have not been mentioned here but will be available once you download the software. While the upgrade is currently not available for Symbian^3 users, it will make its way over soon.

While this is not an alternative to repairing your phone, it can definitely save a lot of time in the process of knowing what exactly is wrong with it. This should give some respite especially for those who’ve spent an eternity at the “nearest” Nokia Care Center!
