Hello

Being stunned by Nokia's ability to destroy my boyfriend's SMS that i sent him, i looked for a solution. A friend of mine in italy (i'm myself in Thailand so this is int'l teamwork) today named me an application yet he wasn't sure if it would work.

I googled for hours and finally was able to find and download the really small (TWO kilobytes!!) thingy, and install it on my boyfriend's 6260.

IT WORKS!!!!

Here is what you need to do:

Download the attachment to this thread. (To the moderators: the attached ZIP file contains "MSdriveE.sis" which is NOT a crack/copy/w**** but a freeware which only is DAMN hard to find!)

Unzip the file, you will find "MSdriveE.sis". Put this on your 6260 by means of bluetooth, IrDA or directly to MMC via MMC reader device. DO NOT INSTALL JUST YET!

Make sure the file is on MMC! Do not keep it in messages inbox, move it from there using a file manager like fExplorer (freeware, google it).

Take a note of your message centre number (messaging - options - settings - text message - message centre in use) because it will be needed.

THEN install the small application from drive e, using the file manager software. Install it to MMC only!

Afterwards, in menu you will find a new application, "MSdriveE". Run it ONCE (!!!), it will seemingly do nothing and just exit after about 30 seconds. BUT........

NOW YOUR MESSAGES ARE SET TO MMC USE!!!!!! As the MMC card icon on top, when inside the "Messaging" menu, will confirm.

Now, before you can send SMS, you will need to re-input your message centre number, because it has been deleted. You will also need to tell MMS settings again which access point to use. AND all your stored messages will have seemingly disappeared - it happens only this one time and NEVER again, believe me. They are still there by the way, but in the phone memory, and can no longer be accessed.

Now, opposed to 3650 an d the like, you can NOT switch between phone and MMC memory - it is MMC only from now on. To get back to phone, you need to take the MMC out and reboot the phone without MMC. Upon entering the "Messaging" menu, it will switch to phone memory. To get back to MMC, simply run MSdriveE application again.


I have not personally tested this as I dont have a 6260 yet. So those who does, please do have a go and give us some feedback. 8)

Well found Marul,

Bit of a pain having to do that,when the option should be included in the firmware (we both know how each other feels about that). smile.gif

Very true mate, its just plain silly of Nokia not to include it. Anyways, I've found this other conversations about this MSdriveE.

But let me warn you of a little bug in the app..

if you activate the app (which means your msg's will go in your MMC),

1.)and you are running any app/song/video that is stored on the MMC then your default msg drive will again become the phone memory..

2). you temporarily loose any msg stored on your phone memory (all these msg can be easily restored by removing the MMC and vieiwng the inbox) - but again as soon as you run the app again the phone memory msg will be invisible

Be warned..


And the response to this.....

However, the mentioned bugs do ONLY apply for N-Gage!

I have been warned of this before, so i tested it. The 6260 behaves just normal when the messages memory is set to MMC with the MSdriveE, also when playing mp3 etc it is still possible to receive any kind of message (SMS, MMS, Bluetooth transfer, IR transfer) as well it is still possible to compose and send such messages.

I have heard then when MSdriveE is installed on a N-Gage, it will sort of "hide" drive E: while using the mp3 player? Well this too does NOT apply to the 6260.

I have it actually tested with my boyfriend's 6260, i am not writing just a guess here.

Yes, the stored messages in the phone's memory become invisible, but they are not deleted. In my "special" case (6260 deleted messages (ALL!!!) as soon as the phone was only turned off) it didn't matter anyway, and since most (all?) 6260 users face the same problem/bug (random deleting of messages either when turning off the phone or when taking out the battery, regardless for how long) i believe that MSdriveE is a huge relief.

especially this part:

I think it means going to Messaging>Options>Settings>Multimedia message>Access point in use.
