On Betlabs.. It said the Maps will not be deleted. I installed it and Boom.. my maps are lost :(

I don't have any wi-fi.. now it won't shift on Internet download mode.. Ovi Suite is not installing on my laptop and Nokia Maps Loader (for Windows) for Windows is not working either :(

I'm officially screwed up.. :(

The Maps in my country (India) are just for 137MB (requires 144MB in phone).. I can download from my computer so easily but ain't getting any download link :(

Please give me a link.

I've a Nokia 5800 XM
