I took my phone backup on my memory card (and took the card out of the phone), you can also use the Nokia PC Suite software to take your backup.The phone cannot be updated in ‘Offline’ profile, so switch to ‘General’ profile and make sure that phone battery is charged completely, so that it does not run out of power during the update process.This procedure worked flawlessly with the handsets I've upgraded but in no way can I guarantee that anyone else will have the same success rate. The idea behind this is to change the product code of your handset in order to obtain newer software for it. Mobile network operators are extremely protective of their revenue streams.Note that by proceeding with the upgrade in the manner described hereafter you will void the warranty on your handset and you may lose some operator-specific functions. One method they have of protecting them is by installing customized firmware into the phones that they provide to their subscribers.

Nokia Software Updater is the official utility Nokia provides to update the pre-installed software in their mobile phones. You just have to connect your Nokia mobile phone to the PC with the original USB cable provided, and execute the program.
Switch your device on and connect it to your PC using the USB cable.
Remember always take backup of your phone before updating your phone firmware, as all data is lost during the update.
