    1. Did something insane! Just flashed my Nokia 500 with the Country Variant firmware of Switzerland using Phoenix and Navifirm+. Enjoying the awesomeness!

        1. It’s good. Specially browsing. Overall experience – like moving from home screens to Menu  is *very* quick. Practically no lag. I like the new theme – Nokia Evolve.

          1. Glad to know 🙂

            Nokia Belle is seriously something better to give a stiff to other platforms such as android or any other mobile OS.
            Nokia shouldn’t have moved from their native Symbian to Windows.
            I believe you got 4 Homescreens in Nokia 500 Belle 🙂

          2. Can you tell me if i can add a notification widget in belle??? I am trying.. the notification bar doesn’t display the name / number of unread msgs/missed calls…
