    I answered all the questions to download-now as I have unlimited data and no in-house wifi.

    I turned it off, waited five minutes then back on again and got a message, "update was not be downloaded."

    Tapped "Check for updates," off it went and then still stuck at 0% again.

    Any help with this?

    None in there and cannot possibly see what that would do.

    Problem fixed, I left it for another 20-minutes and it was showing, "update can only be downloaded by wifi. Connect to wifi." The morons assumed everyone has wifi.

    Talk about useless! I live in the country and had to drive 5-miles to a neighbor who has DSL. Talk about inept programming by Nokia. I have been programming for 35+ years and I know it when I see bad programming and today, I saw it again. We have unlimited high-speed data with the phone, surely they should have an option to allow me elect to use it.

    Glad it's done and finally working for you. I have also thought that it might be okay to update on data especially if unlimited data is an available option....
