Nokia E51 Upgrade for latest VoIP/SIP support
Do you need to upgrade your Nokia cellular phone E51 ?
Why should you want to do this? The new firware has enhanced VoIP/sip support which allows you to make WLAN phone calls, better WLAN support, new internet applications and some bug fixes.
The upgrade process is confusing but this step by step guide should help you out. Before you begin you will need a USB cable, NSS (Nemesis Service Suite), Nokia Software Updater (NSU) and Nokia PC Suite to back up your data. You first need to determine if you have a branded or unbranded Nokia cellular phone E51. The Nokia updater software will not let you upgrade the firmware if it determines you have a branded Nokia phone. But thats ok as you can unbrand it! This step also works if you want to change the region your phone is in from say Europe to somewhere else.
Install the Nemesis Service Suite (NSS) and choose to not install virtual USB drivers. Connect the USB cable to the Nokia cellular phone E51 and select PC Suite mode. Run the program and in the upper right hand corner click on the magnifying glass icon. The software will run some tests and then when its done click the Phone Info tab. In the Production Data Edit section click the Read button. The status bar will show that its reading values and then there should be a number in the Product Code: field. If you want to change regions then enter the product code for the new region. Choose carefully as you cannot change this value again until a new firmware is released. Before entering the new product code, write down the old one! The product codes can be found on the internet.
Try this search and add your region (usa, europe, etc...).
Enter in the new product code, click the Enable check box and then click the Write button.
At this point you could backup your phone with the Nokia PC Suite. Once youve backed up your data, run the Nokia Software Updater. This will check your phone and let you know if there are any firmware updates available. Expect a very long wait while the software runs its checks. Also expect to run the check a few times before it will find the firmware upgrade. When it finds it, follow the prompts to get the firmware loaded. Do not touch the Nokia cellular phone, USB cable, computer, microwave, telephone, radio or anything at all nearby while it is upgrading the firmware. Better yet just leave for awhile and then come back to check on it. After it has upgraded the firmware you are done!

Optional - Nokia SIP Configuration Application
Nokia has a new application to configure the preferred codec, NAT settings,
STUN, VoIP over 3G, etc. for Nokia N and E Series mobile phones.
This application can be used to configure VoIP settings on the terminal UI. You can create new VoIP profiles and modify the existing ones, and create and modify VoIP parameters and NAT/Firewall traversal settings and that are normally not visible on the device UI, such as codec settings and SIP domain-specific NAT/FW settings. It is also possible to save all the VoIP profile settings to a text file.
