7 --> night mode
* --> light
up or down --> switch video/stills

The Light will flash brighter once the picture is taken.
Taking pictures in full res. or with effects may cause it to lag.

Receiving call:
+ or - or # --> mute ringtone
Hold + or - ---> reject call

Silent turned on, media still plays with sound
Fullscreen video--> More>Fullscreen
Settings>General>Music Button --> Change Media button function Radio/Media player
> --> next track
< --> previous track
^ --> pause
+/- --> adjust volume
hold + --> previous track
hold - --> next track
hold > or < --> to scroll back forward media
* and then "lock keys" to lock whilst playing (still able to use +/- to navigate).
Pause video>menu>capture frame -->Capture Video Frame (saved in pic folder must be done in media player).
Press down when u are playing a movie in the mediaplayer and it will go in slow motion.

Radio:
# --> Allows you to type in the radio station instead of scrolling through.

Memory:
Be sure to format a blank memory card via the phone before use.
Filemanger>More>Format

Check overall memory--> Filemanager>more>memory status

During Call:
Hold C -->mute/unmute

Misc.:
If you run out of SMS memory --> Remove your sent messages, without needing to delete inbox messages.

Hold + Or - in input text screens --> Highlight text

Creating contact pictures --> Zoom in on the face and save as large. Did not try saving as small or other size, so dont know how it will appear.

Quick Bluetooth --> Assign one of the Navigation key shortcuts to bluetooth "Turn on". This way, whenever you press up for example, bluetooth turns on/off.

Quick Add Number --> Type in number then goto "Other" > Save nr. > New contact.

USB Charger takes longer than Wall Charger. The USB charger also doesn't fully charge the phone.

Find out firmware --> Access service menu (see above) then goto service info>software info and it should be on the top line.

Text Files:
Handling .txt files:

* txt files are saved in web pages\save_pages folder.
* You can create .txt files with a windows Notepad or any word processing file and then send the file via USB to the folder mentioned above.
* I've noticed that if a Nokia sends me a txt file, when its opened the first letter of the message appears only. It appears that the text message body is saved in the filename, therefore, a long filename will not appear. Thus to view the message, after it has been save in the saved pages folder, view it's information, and the message will be seen in full. I have experienced this with one user, I'm not sure if the user deliberately types the message in the filename field or if thats how nokia works.
* Another way of creating text files is by using word and savnig them as a web page(htm). This is useful if you are using foreign characters, as they will sometimes not appear if saved as .txt.
