General information about S60 3rd Edition devices

(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) I have problems installing a .sis file on my Nokia device.
QUOTE
The new Symbian OS 9.1 package is known as SISX, which differs from the SIS format. Hence, old SIS packages are not supported. User tools, recognisers, file extension and mainstream documentation, however, will continue to refer to SIS packages.

QUOTE
No. Your device only supports Series 60, 3rd edition applications.

N91 FAQs

(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) How do I transfer music from the PC to my phone?
QUOTE
There are three different methods:

1. Treat your phone as external hard drive: Connect your phone to the PC with USB cable or Bluetooth. Then, transfer the files.
2. Synchronize music with Windows Media Player: attach the USB cable and select Media player as the connection method.
3. Use Nokia Audio Manager (available in PC Suite): Attach USB cable, then select PC Suite as the connection method.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Can I transfer my Apple iPod music files to my Nokia N91 using iTunes or via DragDrop?
QUOTE
This depends on the music files you want to transfer. You can transfer unprotected files only, (files that imported from your own music CD). Transferring protected music files, (files you have bought from iTunes music store), is not possible.

1. Drag&Drop can be used in both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac.
2. iTunes can be used only in Apple Mac with Nokia Music Manager


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) I have sent some mp3 songs to the N91 from the PC. I got the message - saved to Music Libary. But later, i cannot find it there.
QUOTE
This is very common problem. Instead of looking under Music Library, you should try to find it under File Manager> Attachments


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Is it possible to use downloaded ringing tones or music tracks as message tones?
QUOTE
Yes.

1. Connect your N91 to your PC using its USB connector and select 'Music transfer'.
2. Open your N91's files on 'My Computer' and select 'attachments', and drag and drop your desired tone here.
3. Disconnect your phone, and go to Menu> tools> file manager> attachments, your file should be in here.
4. Select file options> move to> sound clips> tones
5. Go to settings> profile manager> personalise.
6. Finally, go to the message tone option, and select your new tone.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) The built-in browser is rather slow.
QUOTE
You could have a go at OperaMini (specifically designed for N91). Its a lot faster.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) I can't use any themes downloaded over the internet.
QUOTE
This is a bug (feature). Please make sure you have the current firmware installed. If not, you could update it at Nokia Service Centre.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Why cannot other devices find my phone, even though Bluetooth is on?
QUOTE
Check that My phone's visibility is set to Shown to all. This can be done by selecting Menu> Connect> My phone's visibility> Shown to all.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) I was asked to provide MAC address when i try to access a WIFI network or Bluetooth compatiable printer.
QUOTE
1. To check the unique Media Access Control (MAC) address that identifies your device, enter *#62209526# in the standby mode. (for WIFI settings)
2. To find the unique address of your device, enter the code *#2820# in the standby mode.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Can I hear my N91 with the music on the speakers of my car?
QUOTE
No. This is because N91 does not support Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). A2DP, also refer to as AV profile, is designed to transfer a stereo audio stream like music from an MP3 player to a headset or car radio.

N91 Tips & Tricks

(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) If you are in a call and want to close the slide of the N91:
QUOTE
Press and Hold the Left Soft Key then close the slide. The call should continue.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Tips that will help to improve battery life in long run.
QUOTE
When you get the phone be sure to charge/re-charge the battery at least 3 times, ie use the phone untill the batter goes dead, and keep repeating it.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) In order not to take the risk of losing all your files:
QUOTE
Please make sure that you backup all your contacts and what ever else you intend to copy over to the Nokia N91. This is because from time to time, you might need to reformat the harddrive or do a major reset.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Tips for using RealPlayer.
QUOTE
1. To fast forward and Rewind, press and hold the joystick UP or DOWN then release when you get to the point you want.
2. To pause and resume, press the joystick.
3. To switch between full screen and normal screen, use the "2" key on the numeric keypad.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Tips on how to speed up song scrolling.
QUOTE
While you are scrolling (all songs or any other views) in music player, release joystick and press it again to the same direction. The speed will be much faster afterwards.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Tips on speeding up access to Media Gallery.
QUOTE
If you try to access the files (let say pictures that you've taken) via Menu> Media> Gallery> Images then select to open, you are likely to wait for about 30-40 secs.

Hence, to speed up the process, use the File Manager that comes with the phone. You can do this by Menu> Tools> File Manager> Select either the Phones Memory or the Harddrive (depending on where u put your pics).

Or, you could set it as either a softkey or on the active desktop.


(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/591/tick3du.png) Play with the Music Button.
QUOTE
Click once: take you to the Music player, where you could play mp3 songs. Now if you click the button again, the N91 will leave the song playing in the background and go back to the prevous screen.

If you hold the button down for about 5 secs it will take you straight to the radio function (regardless of which screen you are in).
