FExplorer Tips & Tricks.

* How to reset the operator logo :
1) go to the following dir :
c:\system\apps\phone\oplogo
2) delete any file in this directory
3) restart the phone

* to make a screenshot on a Nokia 3650, 6600 :
1) use the pencil key + '0'

* to make a screenshot on a SX1 :
1) use the shift key + '0'

* remember, there are some shortcuts :
<KeyPad 1> : copy
<KeyPad 4> : cut
<KeyPad 7> : paste
<KeyPad *> : go to root
<KeyPad 3> : PageUp
<KeyPad 6> : top of the list
<KeyPad 9> : PageDown
<KeyPad #> : file properties

* 'send command' fails new firmware
with some new firmware, some users have reported that the 'send command' (thru bluetooth, IR, ...) fails; it's due to a 'copyrigth protection' introduced in the new OS (!!!!), this happens only with some kind of files (eg: .SIS), in such case, simply rename the file (eg: wtih .SIS_ ) before trying to send them.

FExplorer is a freeware, download it at www.gosymbian.com

About Operator Logos

The operator logo is the picture on top of your phone screen, in most cases is the name of your operator.

How to change it for a nice picture? You can do this by diferent ways:

First create this folder if you dont have it:

C:\System\Apps\Phone\Oplogo\

The operator logo will be stored on it...)

You can use FExplorer (any jpeg/bmp, no resize), seleQ (any image, it will resize it) --> select the image you want be operator logo, select options-file-set as operator logo.

You can make your own logo:

The operator logos have the following format:

COUNTRYCODE_NETWORKCODE_SUBNETCODE.BMP

For example, for Spain:

Amena: 214 03 -> 214_3_0.BMP
Movistar: 214 07 -> 214_7_0.BMP
Vodafone: 214 01 -> 214_1_0.BMP

In the PHILIPPINES:
Smart: 515 01
Globe: 515 02

The size for bmp is 97 x 25 pixels.

Also, you can store diferent logos for diferent operators. For example if you change your SIM to other operator, you will see the other logo, or if you travel to other countries, you can store diferent logos for the operators in this countries.

You have a list of country codes and network codes here , just ignore the first "0" in network code if any.

If you want to delete the logo to restore the original (name of the operator) just delete the bmp file from c:\system\apps\phone\oplogo.

Cant Uninstall An Application?

When you cant uninstall an application(most of the time Java games) using the Manager function of the phone, then do this;

1. Install FExplorer.

2. Launch it and goto the path/folder of the Application. I'm assuming you have install it to the MMC so the path would be something like,

E:\system\apps

and you will see lots of folders in there that is only labelled by numbers(for Java games/apps) or the name of the application. Go though them one by one. Open the text file in that folder to exactly know the name of the application in that particular folder if you dont see any icons or familiar name.

3. Then if its the correct folder, "move-out" of the folder, click on Options>File>Delete.

4. Then goto the Manager to uninstall it if its still listed.

5. Reboot.

About Infra Red Connections.

I know IR is old skool but hey, it comes handy at times especially when BT acts-up on you. This one is written by a good online buddy of mine, qtdemon666.

QUOTE
This procedure assumes that the infrared device is connected to a serial port on your computer. Use this procedure only if Windows did not automatically install an infrared device when you turned on your computer. Typically, Universal Serial Bus (USB), PCMCIA, and other Plug and Play-compliant infrared devices are automatically detected and installed.

To add a new infrared device:
01. Click Start, point to Control Panel, and then click Add Hardware.
02. The Add Hardware Wizard starts.
03. Click Next.
04. Click Yes, I have already connected the hardware, and then click Next.
05. In the Installed hardware list, click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
06. Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced), and then click Next.
07. In the Common hardware types box, click Infrared devices, and then click Next.

Do one of the following:

01. If you do not have an installation disk for the infrared device, click the manufacturer of the device in the Manufacturer list, click the infrared device that best matches your hardware in the Infrared Device list, and then click Next.

02. If you have a manufacturer's installation disk for a compatible driver, click Have Disk. Insert the manufacturer's installation disk into the appropriate drive, and then click Next.
Follow the instructions that are displayed on the remaining pages of the Add Hardware Wizard to install the infrared device.


View the Properties of an Infrared Device
To use this procedure, there must be an infrared device installed on your computer. Note that the settings for the infrared device are configured automatically when you install the device, and typically do not have to be changed. To view the properties of an infrared device:

01. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Wireless Link.

02. Click the Hardware tab, click the infrared device for which you want to view properties, and then click Properties.


Configure a Serial Port for Infrared Communication
Your computer must support an infrared mode for a serial port. Use this procedure to install an IrDA transceiver that is provided by the computer manufacturer. To configure a serial port for infrared communication:

01. Start the BIOS configuration utility for your computer. Note that the method for starting the BIOS configuration utility varies from one computer to another. For many computers, you can start the BIOS configuration utility by pressing a function key that is indicated during the computer startup process. Some computers require that you start by using special configuration disks. For more information about how to enter BIOS Setup, see your computer manufacturer's documentation.

02. In the peripheral or serial port configuration section, change the mode to IrDA or Infrared.


Troubleshooting
Installing an IrDA transceiver disables the serial port. Do not attach a serial IrDA transceiver to a serial port.

Downloading & Installing Java Files

Java files can be a bit tricky at times. Most of the time, after you have downloaded and saved the java file on your pc, windows tend to change the icon (& sometimes the extension) of the file into a .zip one.

And this will led to those not familiar with this issue to extract the file. Once that is done, you will see a lot of folders and files. This is not the right way but ofcourse theres a way to get around this. Heres what you should do instead;

First, on your PCs, launch Windows Explorer and then select

Tools>Folder Options>View and "un-tick" the Hide extensions for known file type.

Now only can you see the full extension of a file and change the .zip into .jar (if necessary) and send it to your phone.

Repairing A Corruptted MMC.

QUOTE
Correct Treatment of your MMC:

Physically, memory cards are quite fragile pieces of high technology, susceptible to damage from various silly things like excessive heat, condensation, strong magnetic fields, physical damage from rough handling and/or bending! (similar to most electronic devices then..)

Given the natue of mobile memory card products, they are constantly being taken in and out of some form of interface with a mobile phone, a camera, a laptop, or desktop PC, or a separate memory card reader. The number of different devices they have to be able to interact with is in the thousands.

It is not too surprisingly, then that sometimes the state of the file system on the memory card can get damaged.

This may happen for a number of different reasons, including:


> removing the card from a device whilst an application is trying to read/write to it.. (Just be patient...)
> battery drain on a device whilst in use meaning an insufficent voltage failure whilst writing to the card.
> a poor implementation of the MMC standard on the device using the card
> poor connectivity software drivers on the device or the Windows PC/Mac
> physical damage like card or device being dropped, bent, getting wet etc...
> lots of others i am sure..


As often as not, the problem is not terminal for your memory card, but just a software issue ( or in physical terms, it could be called "a temporary disalignment of the all the bits and bytes on the card").

The fix for this problem is the same as for any other file storage device (like a floppy or hard drive) with corrupt or invalid file system, namely; re-format the file system.

Re-Formatting your MobyMemory MMC Card:

It is possible that your mobile will offer you the option of formatting the memory card if it is found to be invalid. (However, the likes of Nokia nGage, Nokia 6600, and Siemens Sx1 often just prefer to reject the media as corrupted).

In that case, to format the card, you will need access to one or more of the following:


> A Windows PC or Mac.
> A separate multi-format memory card reader (verify that it is compatible with the MultiMediaCard -MMC- standard).
> (This can come in USB or PCMCIA flavours. If USB, try and ensutre it is a USB2 device.
> Alternatively, many of the newest laptop and desktop PCs now come with integrated Multi-format memory card readers.
> If you are using a separate memory card reader, then connect it up to your PC, and let windows recgnize the device through plug-and-play.


Now you can insert your MobyMemory card into the appropriate slot in the memory card reader. (Please note that because the MMC card is pretty much symmetrical it is very easy to insert it upside-down in the slot).

Open up [Windows Explorer] (or the equivalent for MAC users..sorry not well-versed in OS X).

There should be at least one icon visible for a [Removable Drive] in the list of available drives. (in fact, there is often a list of about 5 or 6 Removable drives, one for each of the different Memory card formats that your reader is compatible with).

Find the drive that is mapped to the MMC card by clicking on each in turn until it confirms there is a drive present. (Sometimes it is easiest to do this by trying a fully-functional MMC card in the MMC slot first so you can confirm which drive letter it is.)

(NB. It will always be labelled as a [Removable Drive], don't mistake it for one of your PC hard drives like [C:] drive, as that could be catastrophic later on!)

At this stage it may give an error message saying that the drive is unreadable.

By right-clicking on the drive letter, it will provide the option of formatting the drive.

Select format the drive, and the [Format Drive] dialog will appear (Double-check again to make sure it not your [C:] drive!).

There is only one setting to focus on in this page, and that is to ensure that the FileSystem selected for formatting is the [FAT] option (not FAT32, or NTFS or any other option)

(Note: All mobile phones, to my knowledge, and most cameras (etc..) use the FAT file system (or at least are compatible with it) on their memory card media.)

Now click on Format Now ( ensure [Quick Format] is not selected as this will not actually restore the file system space byte by byte, but only resets the header information so the drive thinks its empty again. This may not be enought to solve your corruption problem.)

The PC will now - hopefully!- chug away happily until it has restored the memory card space back to its original configuration (of course, any information on there is long gone by now!).

If you recieve an error message back from the [Format Now] request, then your problem may be more permanent, and not just a software issue. In this case, it may still respond to a format request in a different memory card reader or device.

If you believe it to be a failure of manufacture, then the warranty on the card offers the prospect of a replacement card, subject to a confirmation of the fault upon return of the goods.

Convert iTunes Music Library To A Mobile-Friendly Format.

QUOTE
Audience: For iPod / Windows PC owners with a “smart” mobile (with MMC/SD slot).

Intro:
This is a guide on how to convert your existing (and probably extensive) iTunes music library into a format that you can play from your mobile.

iPod* owners everywhere have probably spent many long laborious hours importing all the albums from their CD collections into the iTunes* music library on their PC.

This is not something you will readily want to repeat from scratch with the Nokia Audio Manager (or equiv.) to get your music accessible from your mobile.

Fortunately, there is an alternative offered through the many different music file conversion utilities available on the 3rd party software market. For the purposes of this guide, we will be using the range of utilties available from dbPowerAMP.com .

First of all, you have to find out what the Target format is for the music files you want to convert.

This willdepend on the type of mobile you own.

.MP3 file format is appropriate for the following mobiles:
Siemens SX1, Siemens SL45, Sharp GX-30, Nokia 6600 (with 3rd party MP3 player), motorola A920/925..

.AAC file format is the preference for the following (although they can all play .MP3 as well):
Nokia 6230, Nokia n-Gage, Nokia 7610, Nokia 3650, Nokia 3300..

.WMA file format is the preference for any of the available windows-based smartphones:
Orange SPV / E200, Motorola mpx200, O2 XDAII..

There are other alternatives like .AMR, and .OGG format (Ogg Vorbis standard), but are less common. (Ogg players are available for the symbian-based mobiles like Nokia 6600, Siemens SX1, Nokia n-Gage ). AMR is a lower quality encoding standard, not likely to satisfy all but the least demanding of music listeners (but it is useful for providing short mono voice recordings on mobiles).

Some mobiles are capable of playing a variety of different music file formats (Nokia 6230 can play .aac, .mp3, .amr)

In this case, if you are not too bothered about the portability aspect of your music, then descending order of preference is probably:

AAC -> WMA -> MP3 -> AMR.

This is because AAC and WMA are both newer compression standards, and so employ a more efficient compression algorithm than MP3, making for smaller files (which means more music on your memory card!). However, if you also want to play your digital music in your car stereo (MP3-CD), in your old MP3 player, and any number of other players, then portability may be more important to you than file size. Then, MP3 may still be the best format for you to convert to.

Fortunately dbPowerAMP Music Converter is capable of converting music files to any of these formats, when combined with the available codecs.

To start:
Open up the iTunes application on your Windows PC.

Select  [Edit] - [Preferences] option in iTunes menu.

From the dialog, select the [Importing] tab to verify what standard your iTunes has been encoding with in its music library. The default here is displayed below: (namely AAC to 128kbps). Write down these details somewhere (you will need them later).

Now select the [Advanced] tab and note where the music library is stored on your PCs hard drive. Again, note down these details.

Now, if you haven’t already, download and install the following components from dbPowerAMP.com. dBpowerAMP Music Convertor (dMC)  - http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm

Various Codecs   - http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm
(depending on which standard you are converting from to which target format)

Check out the list of Codecs at: 
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-mp4.htm
For converting from MP4 AAC (which is the iTunes default), you need the following [AAC to Mp4  &  Mp4 to AAC] codec: Click to download.

This will enable you to convert an .M4A file (used in iTunes, iPod, Nero) into a standard .AAC file that can be played by your mobile player (for Nokia 6230, Nokia n-Gage, Nokia 3650 / 3300 )

If you want to convert to .WMA (for a Windows smartphone), then download the .WMA codecs:
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-wma.htm

For conversion to MP3, dBpowerAMP already comes supplied with the best MP3 encoder (LAME). Once the dBpowerAMP Music Convertor and all the necessary codecs have been installed, open it up. You will be asked to browse to the music files you would like to convert. Multiple selections can be made here.

In the main application dialog, you get the option of which format you would like to convert to from the drop-down box at the top.

Make your selection according to your type of mobile. Then you will have the choice of some advanced options ( click the [Advanced] button) to set things like the quality of encoding ).

As a rule, for most people, the following bit rates can be regarded as a good quality:

.AAC - 64kbps encoding

.WMA – 96kbps (or 64kbps)

.MP3 -  128kbps CBR

(and if VBR – variable bit rate – encoding is used, 96kbps is acceptable.

NB. Please note that not all MP3 players in mobiles can play the full range of encoding options, from 48kbps up to 320kbps, and CBR ,to VBR).

Once the options are set, then click the [Convert] button.

dBpowerAMP will display a progress bar, and start to work its way through the selected files, writing them to the selected destination folder.

When complete, those compatible music files (whether .aac for your Nokia 6230, .MP3 for your Siemens SX1 etc) can be transferred to your MobyMemory MMC card (preferably via a memory card reader).

All you have to do now is load the MMC card into your mobile and you can take part of your iTunes music library with you if you leave your iPod behind!

For more information on the complicated and technical arena of digital music, check out this excellent series of articles from Spoon of dBpowerAMP: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/spoons-audio-guide.htm

NB. This guide has been written to help those with music stored in their iTunes music library. With little alteration, it should also be useful for people looking to convert digital music files from different source formats, as a similar process takes place. The range of conversion possibilities in dBpowerAMP alone are pretty extensive.

But remember to try and use as a good a quality source as possible for conversion (either the original CD, or a high bit-rate encoding of your CD such as that provided in iTunes music library by default). You can convert down in bit-rate, but if you try and convert up, you will be making a larger file for no quality benefit in sound at all (because with lossy compression, the information has already been lost from the original encoding of the source file).

MP3 For Your 6600.

Last Info Update: 14/09/04

I guess this is quite a hot issue in almost every Nokia forum I've come across, so I decided to try and list all the possible options and tips for the above.


Transfering Mp3s.
1. If you have an IR, just activate your 6600 IRs and your computer should detect the connection. You can either click on the IR icon (bottom-right on your task bar) and a window will pop-up allowing you to browse for the file; or just locate the file via windows explorer, right click on it, goto Send to and an option of "Send to a nearby computer" will be visible. Once done your Mp3 would be in your inbox and to move it would require you to have FExplorer or SeleQ installed earlier on on your mobile.

Launch your SeleQ/FExplorer and goto C or E:\system\ mail\00001001_S\*.
Go through the folders 0 - 9, a - f and you should find the Mp3 you just sent..
Choose Options>Edit>Cut and then when you have located your Mp3 folder (e.g. E:\Sounds\Digital) and Option>Edit>Paste.

A lengthy process but if you dont have BT or MMC reader, its the only possible way.

2. If you rather prefer to send by IR via the PC Suite, as mention up there, make sure you goto the Control Panel and untick the conversion that you dont require under File Transfers. This is a much more easy process you can assign directly to which folder you want the Mp3 to be.

3. For BT owners, its a much more simpler procedure, its just a matter of pairing your phone and your PC and then launching your BT client browser. Although if you send it not using the PC Suite, you will have to do the Cut & Paste procedure as described in option 1.

4. By far the easiest and the fastest way to transfer your Mp3s is via the MMC reader. Just slot-in the MMC to you reader, which is connected to you PC ofcourse, then dump all the your Mp3 into the specific folder you prefer.

So thats the possible option (that I can think off) on how to transfer your Mp3. The best player I've seen/heard is the Ultramp3 & Mp3player only and its both not free. As for the bit rate settings, thats upto you, but theres no need for high cd quality file, as the 6600 or 7610 only has mono speakers.


Mp3 as ringtones for the 6600?
Yes people on the old firmware (v3.42.1) can actually play mp3 files that is converted to/with Ogg codec on your phone as ringtones the way you would do for midi or wav files! (If you have firmware v4.09.1 and above you cannot have this function). All you have to do is find an mp3 song and convert it to/with Ogg format/codec. The mp3 would then have an .ogg extension. The best FREE mp3 converter is the dBpowerAMP, its a must have if you havent got it yet. Its easy to use and theres a good 'How to' section on the main website.

Recommended Bitrate.
I found this from another forum


QUOTE
I'm using 64kbps quality, mono sound and 16000 Hz sampling rate (though I think the quality set at 45kbps is also all right) - with this, an mp3 file that was 3MB in size was coded to an ogg file of 600+ and 800+ kb for the 45kbps and 64kbps sampling rate respectively. Of course the size will vary depending on the instruments and voices (ie the frequency present) in the song.



Anyways, install the ovcontroller.SIS to your C drive of your 6600 and thats about it. You wont see any icon for it on the menu page at all. Then just send the .ogg sound file to your phone via BT or IR and when you open it, it will play in the default Recorder of the 6600. Save it and then when you choose ringer tones for your profile, it will be listed and played like any other file.

QUOTE ("fonzi")
Whan playing an ogg track,after a while when you leave the phone alone,the light goes off and time/screensaver comes on...It STOPS PLAYING!!! How can I prevent it from stopping?

Installed Ogg Player (click to download) so I can play tracks right through without stopping when phone goes on standby mode. By the way I use 48kps,16000hz for the ogg files.Seems pretty much fine.


Mp3 Editor.
The two free ones that I would recommend is Mp3Trim & Mp3 CD Doctor 2004. Also DietMp3 will let you compress the Mp3 file into a much more compact size without sacrificing the quality. Personally I use Cool Edit Pro & Gold Wave, which is not free....unless you know where to look wink.gif

Ok I think thats about covers it all on Mp3s for 6600. Anything I missed out, not explained clearly or wrongly, please do comment on it. I've posted this issue here before, so I hope it will much help to all again. Thanks & good luck! 8)

Increase Your MMC Space.

QUOTE
Your files in MMC are stored in multiple (disk) blocks.
So if you format using 16K block, the space used will be 16K eventhough your file is just 1K.

If you buy MMC, it is usually preformatted with 16K block. Therefore alot of space is wasted as most installed program files are usually less than 2K.

You will need a card reader to do this:-

1. Connect card reader and copy all your files in the MMC to computer disk. (Make sure you set the show all/hidden/os files to "on")

2. Do a format of the MMC using command line "format" and use the /A=size option.

Alternative, you can use the Disk Management in Adminstrative Tools to format.  Make sure you select FAT. For 256MB MMC, smallest block you can use is 4K, 128MB is 2K, 64Mb is 1K and 32MB is 512B.

(Note: You cannot use the phone "format MMC" to do this as the format just clear the allocation table and does not change the block size)

3. Copy back all files to MMC.

Now you will find that you will have more space.
256mb MMC got back 30+ mbs

Knowing File Extensions

QUOTE
In downloads thread you can find diferent type of files (like you can find it over the web...)

.sis = Symbian installation file, just send it to your phone, and install.

.jar = Java installation, send file to your phone, and install.
Note about .jar files. You dont need to extract the .jar files into your PC, juest send them to your phone directly. By the way, if you get a.zip (or other extension) and when extract its content you get lot of files and folders, files like \META-INF\MANIFEST.MF, or *.class, it should be a .jar file... then, dont extract, just rename the main .zip to .jar. and send to your phone.

.zip = The standard compressed file, you can use winzip to extract the content... www.winzip.com

.ace = Other format of compressed file: www.winace.com

..rar = And the compressed format about everybody ask... www.rarlabs.com

Note: Its always best to extract .zip, .ace & .rar files on your PC first as your phone can only most of the time.

Sending Files via BT & IR.

Where are the files that you send to your phone via IR or BT?

There are in mail folder:

If you store your messages in phone memory, there are in c:\system\mail\...

If you store your messages in MMC, there are in e:\system\mail\...
Files in inbox are in folders like "*_F "

For example: E:\system\mail\00001001_S\0\00100c60_F\ (file)
or E:\system\mail\00001001_S\1\00100bc1_F\ (file)
or E:\system\mail\00001001_S\2\00100bc2_F\ (file)

About BT Connection: Setting Up & Pairing Your Phone.

QUOTE
This is a "How To" for Connecting the Nokia Series 60 device (Nokia 7650, 6600, 3650, 3660 etc...) via Bluetooth TM with the Windows Widcomm software used by TDK, Billington, MSI and others Bluetooth USB Vendors. The guide was created with the 7650 hadset but the steps are similar for other Series 60 devices and have been checked with the 3650 and 6600.

1.Pairing the computer and the Series 60 Handset
Pairing is the process of swapping pass keys and setting up a trusted connection between the Bluetooth USB adapter / card connected to the PC and the 7650 handset. Save any files and close any applications you may have been working on.

2. Set up Bluetooth TM on the 7650 by going to the Main Menu, selecting Connect and then Bluetooth.

3. Make sure the Bluetooth option is On and My Phone's Visibility is Shown to all. Remember what is in My Bluetooth Name - or edit it to one of your choice - this is what your 7650 will be seen as by other Bluetooth TM devices.

4. Right Click on the Bluetooth Icon in the system tray, on the menu that appears go to Setup and then click on Security.

5. A window appears and all being well the right hand pane will have your 7650 (titled what ever you have entered into the phone's My Bluetooth Name entry). If nothing appears click Refresh and your phone should then appear. Highlight the 7650 and click Execute Pairing.

6. A window will pop up asking for a PassKey. Enter in a numeric only passkey and click OK.

7. On the 7650 a screen pops up asking you to enter a passkey - key in the same number you just typed into the PC.

8. By default any connections from your PC to the 7650 must be manually accepted on the 7650. You have an option to set up a connection from the PC to your 7650 as authorized, this means when you connect from the PC to the phone it won't ask you if it's ok and will connect automatically.

9. To set it as automatic: On the 7650 in the Bluetooth TM Setting Screen, you joystick right to the Paired Devices screen, highlight the Computer you just paired with and press Options, select Set as Authorized and Yes. You will then see a padlock icon beside the paired device - this device will no longer require manual authorization for connections to the 7650.

Now you should set My phone's visibility to Hidden - so that unknown devices searching won't see your phone. You can still be connected to by any paired devices. Remember to switch it to Visible if you want to pair with a new device or receive a file / business card from someone with an unpaired device.

About BT Connection: Connecting To PC Suite

QUOTE
Manually make a serial connection to the Series 60 Handset to get the mRouter connection started:

1. To get a connection working you need one last step - you need to connect to the 7650's Bluetooh Serial port from the PC.

2.Right Click on the Bluetooth TM Icon in the system tray, on the menu that appears go to Services and then click on Bluetooth TM Serial Port. Select Find Devices from the sub menu. (A shortcut to this connection will be created so next time you will have the 7650 listed in Bluetooh Serial Port submenu to save the next step).

3. Select the 7650 from list and click Connect.

4. A window will appear telling you the connection is starting.

5. If you have not set the 7650 to automatically authorize a connection from this computer be ready to accept the connection request on the phone. If you have set it to automatically authorize then you won't be asked.

6. You should also see the Bluetooth icon on the 7650 start to flash showing a connection take place. Then you may get an error on the PC saying it can't connect and/or a message saying there is a Connection on COM0 (you can check the box to stop this appearing again), you can just ignore these message(s) for a minute. (Click OK once the mRouter connection is made described below.)

A couple of seconds later the mRouter icon in the tray shows a connection in starting and then a connection being made. You can see also the active connection in the mRouter Connection Properties. The PC Suite application should then be ready for use.

- At the top of the main-menu and every folder, the keys 1 to 9 are shortcuts to the icons 1-9

- A shortcut on the left menukey in standby-mode will take more time to open than a shortcut on the right menukey. Reason: The left key is also used for the keylock so it shortly waits for pressing the * button.

- While writing text press and hold "#" to switch between Alpha mode and Number mode. You can also press a key long to insert its number.

- In standby-mode, press and hold 0 to launch your wap home page.

Regarding Log Times.

Found on another forum:

QUOTE
When I set the GMT offset time in clock of 6600 to +530 then all my call log shows half hour prior to the actual time logged, and if it is -530 then log shows after half hour of actual time and if the same is set at +500 or -500 then the call log shows correct time of the call logged. But further I am not able to set the offset to + or - 500 as Psiloc world clock pro changes the timing to exactly +530 indian timing. Does anyone has a solution?

The log timings depends on the time set in your mobile clock. If you change the timing and make a call the log shows the changed time only. My previous post meant if th clock offset minutes is "00" and any hour, then log timings is accurate to the time set on clock. But opening World clock pro changes it automatically to +530 as the home location is india. and as the minutes offset changes to "30" the log time varies. If I dont use World clock pro nothing changes.

Phone Hangs on Start-up?

QUOTE
We sometimes hear from users of Series 60 handset users stating that they've filled up their memory, and the memory is so full that they can't get in to delete any files.

We've not had any experience of this, but the best thing to try is to restart the phone (by taking the battery out) when it "hangs" and then starting the phone in "safe mode". This causes the phone to load as few apps as possible at startup. To do this, hold down the ABC key, and while holding it down, start up the phone. Hopefully you will then be able to transfer files from your C drive to your MMC to free up the memory.

As a very last resort, you can format the phone and start again - 1st post in this FAQ section - This will remove all data, and you'll have to restore your phone's information from a backup which you may have made on your MMC or via PC Suite.

If you still can't get into the phone, the final option appears to to be to take the phone to the nearest Club Nokia shop (or your retailer), who should be able to re-flash the phone to factory settings.

Internet On Your Phone Using Bluetooth.

Ok I found this other guide which is more easy for newbies to follow. The 6600 cannot use the connection below. I have read in another forum someone saying that the mRouter connection for 6600 & 7610 has been disabled by Nokia!

The connection below can only work on Symbian v6.0 phones, which is 3650, 3660 7650 & N-gage. Phones like 6600 & 7610 is on Symbian v6.1 and can only used the connection which is posted just before this post.

By tzeonn:

step 1:
Creating an access point on your phone!

tools\settings\connection\access points\options\new access point>default settings...

these are the settings u need there..

Connection Name : Anything (sugestion ADLS or PCGPRS something u remember well cuz u'll need it later!)

Data Bearer: GPRS

Access Point Name: The name you gave to your bt connection when pairing up with the computer...

Username : None

Password : No

Authentication : Normal

Gateway IP Address : 0.0.0.0

and that's all on this on this part..

then go to:

tools/settings/connection, and select GPRS

set the GPRS connection to "when available", and the access point to "none".

The settings on your fone are done! now... the next step;


Create a serial port connection from ur pc to ur phone (u've done this before if u ever used Pcsuite from nokia), this serial connection must be on everytime you want to use your pc internet connection as a gprs connection for ur phone!!


Install the software u need to surf the web (opera, netfront, agile messenger for chat, etc..)

My advise to you is to use netfront, the options are pretty cool and it uses less memory meaning u can still run other program such as agile at the same time (it crashed my 3650 when I tried to do it with opera)..

Voilá ur ready to use ur phone to surf and chat for free!!

hope this helped you and that is simple and clear!! any question u know where to post, this will be updated if many doubts come up.

ps. works with ngage arena games!!!

MSN via WAP

What is eMessenger?
eMessenger is a web application that enables you to access MSN without having to install any program or Java applet. All you need is a JavaScript enabled browser and you're set to go and use eMessenger. Even if you're behind a firewall you still can use eMessenger because all MSN connections and operations are managed on the server and the browser acts like the link between you and your MSN session.
Also maybe the best thing about eMessenger is that you can actually access MSN from a mobile device being that a PDA or a mobile phone or any other device that supports HTML and/or WAP,

Mobile version:
Available at http://mob.e-messenger.net. All you need is a xHTML or WAP 2.0 enabled browser.

WAP Version
A WAP version (for WAP 1.1 or higher) is also available. Just open your WAP Browser on your device and go to http://wap.e-messenger.net

Send .sis, .mid & .jar files form phone to phone with ease.

I have found one File Explorer which lets you send any files, yes .mid, .jar & .sis included without any need to rename them first. I am on the new firmware now and yesterday I tried sending a .mid file to my friends' 6230, it works like a charm! It has the prettiest interface too!

This ProfiExplorer comes with ProfiMail which is

Modern Font

user posted image
Tahoma

Also prior to installing this fonts, I suggest you install FExplorer on your phone. Ok so here goes...

Step 1. Download the fonts HERE.

Step 2. In the Zip file you will see
+ FontRemover.sis
+ tahoma.sis
+ modern.sis
+ set3v3.sis
+ mssans.sis
+ symbol.gdr
+ comic.gdr

Step 3. Then send the FontRemover.sis to your phone and install it. Once installed, launch the application and it should ask you if you want to delete font. Click on Yes and it should tell you to reboot your phone. Do NOT reboot first.

Step 4. Now send one of the font sis files, lets say modern.sis to your phone and install it to your C drive (your phone, NOT mmc). Once installed then reboot your phone.

Step 5. When it starts, you should see the default fonts replaced by the ones you have just installed.


Now I cant stress this more but you need to understand that you can only use ONE FONT at one time. If you want to use another font, you will have to go back to step 3 & 4.


As for the .gdr files, you will need to do it this way.

Step 1. Use FontRemover to remove the fonts.

Step 2. Open FExplorer and goto C:\system and create a "fonts" folder as shown below.

user posted image

Step 3. Send the .gdr file to your phone. Do not open it as it will say unknown file format.

Step 4. Find the file in your mail folders (C or E:\system\mail\00001001_S\0-9, a-f) using FExplorer.

Step 5. Copy or Cut the file and then paste it to the C:\system\fonts folder.

Step 6. Exit FExplorer and then reboot you phone.



Convert ttf fonts to gdr using Easy GDR Convertor. Download it HERE.


So its that simple. In my testing, I found that some fonts like tahoma & mssans does not make much different (well atleast to me) as the modern font did. Good luck!

How to convert .3GP movies, taken with your mobile phone, into .AVI:


>>> Convert 3gp to avi with QuickTime:

Download QuickTime Pro at http://www.apple.com (not free).
If you have older version of Quicktime player or still have problems with playing 3gp files then just download and
install Quicktime Alternative: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickT...Alternative.htm.

1. Open a .3gp movie in QuickTime Player.
2. Press File -> Export.
3. Enter filename.
4. Choose type of output file (Export: Movie to AVI (.AVI) or Movie to Quicktime Movie (.MOV)).
5. For AVI: press Options -> Video Settings -> choose DV - PAL (for better quality of re-compression).
6. Click Save! That's all.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


>>> Convert 3gp to RAW avi with the 3gpToRawAvi converter:

Method 1 (with User Interface):

- Get the 3gpToRawAvi converter:

here: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/downloads/3gpToRawAvi.zip 1.13MB (free).

Unzip 3gpToRawAvi.zip and place folder '3gpToRawAvi' somewhere on your pc.

- Then get the User Interface for 3gpToRawAvi:

here: http://digilander.libero.it/heracleum/down...onvert3gpEN.zip 3kB (free).

Unzip files into the '3gpToRawAvi' folder and execute Convert3gp.vbs. Then choose a .3gp file from your computer to covert to avi.

Done.


Method 2 (without User Interface):

- Get the 3gpToRawAvi converter:

here: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/downloads/3gpToRawAvi.zip 1.13MB (free).


Unzip 3gpToRawAvi.zip and move folder '3gpToRawAvi' to, for instance, C:\3gpToRawAvi.

Move a .3gp movie file you want to convert to the same folder (C:\3gpToRawAvi).

Then go to the dos window:
1. Click on the Start button
2. Click on Run
3. Type in "cmd" and click OK to display the dos window
4. If you're not in C:\> go to C:\> by typing "c:" followed by Enter
5. In C:\> go to C:\3gpToRawAvi> by typing "cd 3gpToRawAvi" followed by Enter
6. In C:\3gpToRawAvi> type "3gptorawavi <videoname> -o <outputname>" followed by Enter
Note: Replace <videoname> with the .3gp file name without the .3pg extension and <outputname> with the
.avi file name of your choice. Eg. "3gptorawavi Video1 -o Video2"
7. The new raw avi file will be placed in the same folder.

Note: A bit of experimentation shows that, on XP anyway, 3gpToRawAvi won't work if it's folder, or any of it's parent folders
have a space in the name. For instance if 3gpToRawAvi is in "D:\documents and settings\" or in any folder
within "D:\documents and settings\" then you'll get an error when you try to run it.

Done.

>>> Convert 3gp to RAW avi with the Akiles 3gp to avi converter:

- Get the Akiles 3gp to avi converter:

here: http://www.mitsoftware.com/akiles/3gptoavi2.zip 840kB (Sound conversion supported) (free).

here: http://www.mitsoftware.com/akiles/3gptoavi.zip 335kB (No sound conversion supported (free).

Run the program from C:\example. Where example is whatever u choose to call the folder but it can't have spaces in it.
Then select a .3gp source file, select an .avi filename and click Convert.
The 3gp and avi file's folders or paths can't have spaces either.

More info about the Akiles 3gp to avi converter here: http://www.mitsoftware.com/akiles


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


- A RAW avi file is pretty big! (a 10 sec movie is about 3.5 MB!)
So to make a RAW avi file more user friendly you'll have to convert it to DivX!:

Get the VirtualDub video converter here: http://virtualdub.sourceforge.net (free).
Install and launch it (just extract all files to a folder and run the virtualdub.exe).

Open the Videoclip that you want to convert, File->Open video file.
Select under Video->Fast recompress.
Select under Audio->Full processing.
Select Video->Compression and select a codec you want to use.
Select Audio->Compression (MPEG Layer-3 is most common).
And last hit File->Save AVI.

Now the file size of a 10 sec movie should be around 380kB.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And ofcourse now you can also convert to MPEG. There are dozens of programs for that, just use a searchengine.
I found this free program: TMPGEnc http://www.tmpgenc.net (free).

What is 3G?

3G stands for third generation, a generic wireless industry term for high-speed mobile data delivery over cellular networks. 3G networks allow users to send and receive bandwidth-intensive information such as video, video conferencing, high quality audio and web data on-demand, virtually anytime and anyplace.

What is 3GP?

3GP - is the new mobile phone video file format.
3GPP, 3GPP2 are the new worldwide standard for the creation, delivery and playback of multimedia over 3rd generation, high-speed wireless networks. Defined by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project and 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 respectively, these standards seek to provide uniform delivery of rich multimedia over newly evolved, broadband mobile networks (3rd generation networks) to the latest multimedia-enabled wireless devices. Tailored to the unique requirements of mobile devices, 3GPP and 3GPP2 take advantage of MPEG-4, the standard for delivery of video and audio over the Internet.

Extensions:
.3gp 3GPP standard, GSM Network, Video: MPEG-4, H.263, Audio: AAC, AMR
.3g2 3GPP2 standard, CDMA2000 Network, Video: MPEG-4, H.263, Audio: AAC, AMR, QCELP.

The evolution of high-speed wireless digital networks is based on two predominant technologies — GSM and CDMA2000. Both types of 3G networks are currently being deployed worldwide to offer consumers a variety of on-the-go multimedia services.

3GPP and 3GPP2 Mobile Infrastructure Solutions — Many of the world’s largest telecommunications infrastructure companies provide 3GPP and 3GPP2 mobile content delivery products and services to operators. Examples include:
* Alcatel
* Ericsson
* Nokia
* Siemens Mobile
* Sun Microsystems

3GPP and 3GPP2 Mobile Phones — Many of today’s new mobile phones offer 3GPP and 3GPP2 content capture and playback capabilities. Leading providers of these standards-based multimedia phones include:
* Motorola
* NEC
* Nokia
* Panasonic
* Sanyo
* Sharp
* Sony Ericsson
* Toshiba
* Qualcomm

Changing Operator Logo

Ok this has been another popular issue. I myself do not like to use it as it toally makes the Themes I use ugly. I have quite a number of Themes and changed it frequesntly, so I cant be bothered to make one that would suit to each Themes. Anyway, for the sake of everyone else, here goes.

1. Design your own. I think the correct size to go for is 97 x 25 pixels. After you are done, either save it as jpeg, gif or bmp.

2. Then send the logo you designed to your phone and safe in your Image gallery.

3. Next, go get yourself FExplorer & install on your phone.

4. Launch FExplorer and goto the Images folder where your logo is saved. Then click Option>File>Set as operator logo (scroll down). The phone will then reboot and the logo should appear after that.

If you get bored of it then simply goto
C:\System\Apps\Phone\Oplogo\ to remove it.


So thats about it. I hope thats easy enough. Ofcourse there is an easy way, just purchase OpMan whioch frankly is just a waste of money. 8)

Your files in MMC are stored in multiple (disk) blocks.
So if you format using 16K block, the space used will be 16K eventhough your file is just 1K.

If you buy MMC, it is usually preformatted with 16K block. Therefore alot of space is wasted as most installed program files are usually less than 2K.

You will need a card reader to do this:-

1. Connect card reader and copy all your files in the MMC to computer disk.
(Make sure you set the show all/hidden/os files to "on")
2. Do a format of the MMC using command line "format" and use the /A=size option.
Alternative, you can use the Disk Management in Adminstrative Tools to format.
Make sure you select FAT. For 256MB MMC, smallest block you can use is 4K, 128MB is 2K, 64Mb is 1K and 32MB is 512B.

(Note: You cannot use the phone "format MMC" to do this as the format just clear the allocation table and does not change the block size)

3. Copy back all files to MMC.

Now you will find that you will have more space.
256mb MMC got back 30+ mbs

Proceeding: Equipment switch off, which keep "green key" (take off) at the same time pressed, "*" and to "3" key and switch the equipment on (the keys thereby keep further pressed)... to "Formatting" on the display appears...
If that does not function, then equipment for 1 hour switch off, Akku so for a long time rausnehmen and again try.

CHECK SIM-LOCK

Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (we havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about £35.

This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Aslo don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.



There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.

COUNTRY-LOCK

NETWORK-LOCK

PROVIDER-LOCK

SIMCARD-LOCK

The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is



#PW+(MASTERCODE)+(Y)#

# = DOUBLE-CROSS

W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES

P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES

+ = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES

MASTERCODE = 1234567890

Y = NUMBER 1 TO


THE JAMES BOND TRICK

If you short-circuit theleft middle and right pins on the bottom of the phone with all connections touching each other, the Nokia software hangs! The profile "Headset" will be activated. Before you do this just activate the "Automatic Answer" in the headset profile and set the ringing volume to "Mute". Now you can use your phone for checking out what people are talking about in a room. Just place it under a table in a room and call it. The phone receives the call without ringing and you can listen to what people are saying.

*#746025625# - [*#sim0clock#]
Looks if the sim clock can be stopped. Sim clock stop is a kind of stand-by mode which will save battery time. This code doesn't work with software version 4.59.

*3370# activates the Enchanced Full Rate, after the phone has been turned off. EFR produces better voice quality but also consumes more power.
#3370# deactivates the EFR, after the phone has been turned off.

*4720# Activates the Half Rate Codec, after the phone has been turned off. HRC produces poorer voice quality but gives your battery better stand-by times.
#4720# Deactivates the Half Rate Codec, after the phone has been turned off.

Enhanced Full Rate will give you much better sound quality when you enable it. The new EFR codec uses the ACELP compression technology. This technology allows for much great voice quality in the same number of bits as the older Full Rate codec. The older technology was called LPC-RPE. Both operate at 13 kilobits, but you take up more space on the network, so they can charge you more. Talk-time is reduced with about 5%

Half Rate will give you poorer voice quality, which gives the service provider the opportunity to have more calls on the network, and you might get a lower charge from them. Will give you 30% longer talk-time.

Nokia 8260

Change Alpha Tag
The alpha tag is the message that is displayed on your phone when in digital coverage. This is normally transmitted by the network, but can be overidden to display a different tag. This is done by creating a tag for a personal/residential zone in the phone, and setting this zone to have the same settings as your normal carrier. So when the phone identifies the network system it believes it is in the personal/residential zone and displays the tag you have programmed.
1) Enter programming mode of the phone by keying *3001#12345#
2) Find out the ID of your operator by entering the NAM1 menu. Note the Home System ID setting. (16387 on Rogers AT&T in Calgary)
3) Scroll to and enter PSID/RSID lists (menu 7)
4) Select P/RSID 1
5) Scroll to PSID/RSID and change the setting to 1
6) Scroll to Connected system ID and change the setting to the ID of your system (eg 16387)
7) Scroll to Alpha Tag and enter the message you would like displayed.
8) Scroll to Operator code (SOC) and enter coed for your provider such as 2050 for Rogers or 2049 for AT&T
9) Scroll to Country code and enter 302 for Rogers or 310 for AT&T
10) Power cycle your phone and hopefully your message will be displayed
Note: This has only been tested in Calgary on the Rogers AT&T network so may not work on other networks.

#4720# - Half Rate Codec deactivation

Enchanced Full Rate will give you much better sound quality when you enable it. The new Enhanced Full Rate CODEC adopted by GSM uses the ASELP (AlgebraicCode Excitation Linear Prediction) compression technology. This technology allows for much great voice quality in the same number of bits as the older Full Rate CODEC. The older technology was called LPC-RPE (Linear Prediction Coding with Regular Pulse Excitation). Both operate at 13 kilobits.(but you take up more space on the network, so they can charge you more) - Talk-time is reduced with about 5%

Nokia Speed Trap Detector Urban Legend spread by Nokia Engineers ;^)
The settings for radar speed traps detector. Your Nokia cell phone can be programmed to pick up radar speed traps, when programmed your cell phone picks up the radar and alerts you on the message alert tone. ( Doesn't work with Nokia 7110! )
1. Enter your menu
2. Select settings
3. Select security settings
4. Select closed user group
5. Select on
6. Enter 00000
7. Press ok
8. Clear back to normal, within a few seconds your phone will display a radar sign with five zero's next to it. It is now activated.

Unfortunately only Nokia phones have this function. The Cell Phone info display needs to be de-activated. Settings -> Phone Settings -> Cell Info display. Each time you turn off your phone, or even each time you loose contact with your carrier, you'll have to activate it again... It is done using steps 1 through 5 above, but the number (00000) will be already on the field as a default.



Network Monitor
There is a hidden menu inside your Nokia phone. If you want to activate it, you'll have to re-program some chips inside of your phone.
Check your software version. You can only continue if you have v4.33, v4.73 or v5.24.
Take apart the phone.
De-solder the EEPROM (ATMEL AT 24C64)
Read out the data with an EEPROM programmer and save it to a file (Backup)
If you have v.33 or v4.73, change the address "03B8" from "00" to "FF"
If you have v5.24 then change the address "0378" from "00" to "FF"
Write the new data to the EEPROM and solder it back to the phone
Power on your phone and you should have "Netmonitor" enabled.
The Network Monitor gives you the following information:
Carrier number, MS RX Level in DBM, Received signal quality, MS TX power level, C1 (Path loss criterion, used for cell selection and reselection). The range is -99 to 99, RTL (Radio link timeout), Timeslot, Indication of the transmitter status, Information on the Network parameters, TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity), Cell identification (Cell ID, Number of cells being used), MCC (Mobile country code), MCN (Mobile network code), LAC (Location area code), Ciphering (On/Off), Hopping (On/Off), DTX (On/Off), Discard cell barred information.


GSM Network Services Command Strings
When various network functions are selected via the cellphone's menu using the keypad, the cellphone automatically generates the corresponding GSM network command string and transmits it to the network. These commands can however be manually entered via the keypad.

Each command is prefixed with either one or two * or # characters as follows:
** Register and Activate
* Activate
## De-Register (and Deactivate)

Cell Broadcast
While Short Message Service (SMS) can be configured as a personal service, Cell Broadcast is a general service which is designed for subscribers of a specific cell or topic. For example, a subscriber to cell 050 in England will receive information on the GSM tower currently being used by their phone. This new concept brings a whole new meaning to the term mobile communications as the phone is now able to receive information such as share prices or weather updates without the need of data cards and computers. At present the following message types exist (note: this may vary from carrier to carrier and some carriers may charge for this service):


Code Title
000 Index
010 Flashes
020 Hospitals
022 Doctors
024 Pharmacy
030 Long Distant Road Reports
032 Local Road Reports
034 Taxis
040 Weather
050 District
052 Network Information
054 Operator Services
056 Directory Inquiries (national)
057 Directory Inquiries (international)
058 Customer Care (national)
059 Customer Care (international)


In the future one will be able to control each individual call by use of the following service codes. To do this the user has to insert the service code in front of the last # in the MMI command above.

For example the sequence *21*number*16# would divert all SMS calls (and only these) to the given number.

Installation procedure for DKU-5 cable

NOTE:: The installation of the cable crivers must be done before installing the pc suite.
Also do not have the cable plugged in when installing.

Installation::

First install the Connectivity Adapter Cable driver software on your computer from
the CD-ROM supplied in the sales package before installation of Nokia PC Suite.
You can download the latest version of Connectivity Adapter Cable driver
software at http://www.nokia.com.

Loading the CD-ROM on your computer

1. Exit all Windows programs and insert the Connectivity Adapter Cable driver
CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
2. If installation does not start automatically, select "Run.." from the "Start"
menu and type "D:\start.exe" (where "D:\" refers to the CD-ROM drive of the
computer ) and press Enter

Installing the driver

1. Follow the on-screen instructions to start an installation wizard, which guides
you through the setup process of the driver.
2. The installation wizard first tells you that DKU-5 will be installed on your
computer. Click "Next" to continue.
3. When the installation has been completed, in some systems the wizard
prompts you to restart your computer. Click "Yes". Note that you must restart
your computer before you can use the program.
4. Remove any disks from their drives, and then click "Finish" to complete the
setup.

For Windows 2000 users
When the cable is connected for the first time, Windows 2000 automatically
locates the drivers and software that you previously installed. If the "Digital
signature not found" message is displayed during the installation process, click
"Yes" to complete the installation.

For Windows XP users
When the cable is connected for the first time, Windows XP activates the "Found
New Hardware Wizard" to assist you with the installation of both the cable
adapter and the virtual COM port. If Windows logo error messages are displayed
during the installation process, click "Continue anyway" to complete the
installation for both devices.


After this u can follow on to install the pc suite.




Series 40:

Q: I've installed a game and it is not fullscreen. Can it be fixed?
A: No, the games are especially programed for Series 30 phones. But in most cases the game also exists for Series 40

Q: What size can app/games are?
A: max. 64 KB excepting these phones
The 3125 has a limit of 146KB.
The 3220 has a limit of 128KB.
The 5140 has a limit of 128KB.
The 6170 has a limit of 128KB.
The 6230 has a limit of 128KB.
The 6255 has a limit of 800KB.
The 6651 has a limit of 300KB.
The 7600 has a limit of 348KB.

A: You can't. sis-files are especially for phones with Symbian OS.

Q: Where do I get a blank operator logo?
A: Here: http://www.mrzippy.org.uk/funkyfone/blank.nol
Just open the link via your phones browser. The rest is self-explaining



Series 60:

Q: Can Series 40 Games be played on Series 60 phones?
A: Yes, but they won't be in fullscreen. The game will remain in their original programed size.

Q: I've bought a cable for my phone but it won't work. Why?
A: There are no data-cables. These cables are only for service needs and are not capable to transfer data to your phone. The 7610 is the first Symbian of Nokia which can use a cable (besides of the Communicator - but they are a different story )


Q: Where are my messages saved?
A: If your phone saves them within the phones memory they are in c:\system\mail. If they are saved on the MMC (not on all S60 phones possible) they are in e:\system\mail

Q: I've formatted my MMC with a card reader, now I can't access the card with my phone. What now?
A: You've formatted it with the wrong file system. If you want to reformat it with the card reader, choose FAT16 as files system, not FAT32! Or reformat the MMC with your phone, this way all standard folders will be created too.

Q: How can I copy & paste text?
A: Press and hold down the pencil key. Now you can mark the text by using the direction key. To copy, just press "copy". To insert the text press and hold down the pencil key and press "paste"

Q: Where to put my ringtones?
A: Ringtones should be stored in the "Sounds" folder on your MMC or within the phones memory. You can, if you want, sort them into the two subfolders "Simple" and "Digital".

Q: How do I install an app/ a game?
A: There are many ways. PC Suite bounds sis-files to its installer. You should be able to install them easily by double clicking on the sis-file (a connection should be made already!). Or you can send it over to the phone (IrDA or Bluetooth) and open it and it will install automatically. Or you can upload it with a card reader to the MMC and install it from there by open the file. For this method you need FExplorer or SeleQ to gain full access to the MMC.
The rest will be prompted and is easy to understand.

Q: Which Symbian OS version does my phone use?
A: 3600/3620/3650/3660/7650/N-Gage/N-Gage QD are using v6.1; 6260/6600/6620/6670/7610 are using v7.0s; 6630 uses Symbian OS 8.0

Q: How can I upgrade my Symbian OS to a newer version?
A: You can't.

Q: How do I format my phone?
A: - Normal Reset (*#7780#) : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc)
- Deep Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

In both case, the phone will ask you a confirmation and you will have to enter a security code (12345 by default).

Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by these sequences.

For Symbian OS 7 (6260/6600/6620/6670/7610) there is a third method:
Turn phone off, press and hold the green (talk) key on the left + number 3 on the keypad + the * key and then turn the phone back on.

The phone will start the formatting process without confirmation!
Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by this.

Q: How do I get the MAC adress of the bluetooth device of my phone?
A: *#2820#

Q: My phone reacts quite slow, how can I speed it up?
A: You can speed up the phone by setting the time of the "Recent calls register" to one day (30 days by default). It depends on you how important the "Recent calls register" is for you.

Nokia 6230:


Q: When I want to upload something on the MMC I get a "The operation could not be completed" error. How to fix this?
A: Rename the MMC (can be done in the Gallery) and reboot your phone.

Q: Can I use mp3s as ringtones?
A: Yes!

Q: I've got a big movie on my phone and want to fastforward (rewind). How can I do this?
A: You can't.

Q: I've uploaded mp3s to my MMC and arranged them in folders. The phone won't find any of them. Can this be fixed?
A: mp3s have to be in the root of the MMC. Or you define the location of the mp3s before uploading via playlist, so when the phone accesses the playlist, it knows the mp3s are in this specific folder.



1)What's the difference between the N-Gage and QD?
In order to know their differences, let's compare their specs:

Original N-Gage
- Triband (900/1800/1900)
- 4096 colourscreen
- Stereo (comes with stereo headset)
- Comes with a USB cable, recording cable and adaptor cable (for recording radio/MP3 purposes)
- Built in MP3 player and radio
- side-talking
- Must turn off the phone, remove the battery cover AND battery in order to remove MMC
- 5-way direction pad (CENTER for menu selection)
- Comes with BL-5C battery
- MP3, AAC, MIDI or WAV ringtones
- Great RF

N-Gage QD
- Dualband (850/1900 or 900/1800)
- 4096 colourscreen (brighter than Original N-Gage)
- Mono (comes with dual mono headset)
- Doesn't come with ANY cables
- NO built in MP3 player or radio (will still be able to listen to mp3's thru 3rd party apps)
- NO side-talking
- Hot-swop, easy removal of MMC
- 4-way direction pad with a separate "menu selection" key
- Comes with BL-6C battery
- MIDI or WAV ringtones
- Great RF (better than Original N-Gage if 850 is being used)

(2) Which N-Gage is better?
It's really hard to say because everyone has their own opinions. But if you are looking function-wise the original N-Gage wins out with the stereo support, MP3 ringtones, radio, tri-band and additional cables/recording functions. But the QD counters with its 850 (for those 850 gurus), smaller-size, no side-talking, BL-6C battery(for extra battery life)and the easy removal of MMC.

(3) Can my (input s60 phone here) play N-Gage games? Where/How can I find ******* N-Gage games for my (input s60 phone here)?
Yes your s60 phone can play N-Gage games. How and where? according to forum rules, I am not allow to tell. Sorry.

(4) How do I check firmware and IMEI on my N-Gage/QD?
Press *#0000# on the main screen for firmware, and *#06# for IMEI.

(5) How do I change my operator logo for my N-Gage/QD?
Download SeleQ or FExplorer from mysymbian.com, access the image thru either of the apps and select "Set as Operator Logo". If that doesn't work, SMS yourself or download an older format logo (black and white), and then save that logo. After that, you should be able to change your operator logo thru SeleQ or FExplorer.

(6) How do I change my wallpaper on my N-Gage/QD?
1) Press the application key
2) Scroll to the "Tools" folder and open it
3) Scroll to "Settings" and open it
4) Select "Phone/Device" (whichever your phone may say)
5) Select "Standby Mode"
6) Select "Background Image"
7) Select "Yes"
Select either "Phone Memory" or your MMC card depending on where the image is saved
9) Select the image
10) Go back to your main screen of the phone



With Multimedia Converter 2.0 [download] you can convert common multimedia file formats (such as MPG or MP3) to audio AMR/AWB format.
Read here about where to download and how to install Nokia Multimedia Converter

1. In the menu, select File > Open. A dialog opens. The shortcut for this is to click the Open button in the toolbar. Browse for the audio file or video with audio you want to convert and click Open. Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop a file to Multimedia Converter.

2. Select the audio format (AMR or WB-AMR) and audio bit rate. WB-AMR produces higher quality sound than AMR. Selecting a higher bit rate increases the quality of the sound, but it produces larger files.

3. It is also possible to set the maximum size of the converted file in the Max file size edit box. In MMS, the size of audio file cannot exceed certain values; for example, 100 kB, because some WAP gateways might block the transfer of larger files, operators might prefer to limit the file size to reduce air-traffic, or because not all MMS client and server implementations support large file sizes. When you set a maximum file size limit, you cannot define the audio bit rate. It's adjusted automatically so that the converted file contains the whole original file from the given start point and so that its size is equal to or smaller than the given size limit. If the given size limit is too small to meet by reducing audio bit rate, the converted file is truncated (shortened from the end).

4. You can start the conversion from an offset point. Set the time stamp of the offset in the Start time edit box. The shortcut for this is to keep the CTRL key pressed and slide the original file location indicator to the desired position. This updates the time stamp information in the Start time edit box.

5. Click Convert. Another dialog pops up and shows the progress of the conversion. After the conversion is finished, you can hear the converted audio file. You can select the original or converted audio for playback by selecting “Original” or “Converted” from the drop down menu


The converted audio file format is AMR (.amr suffix files) or WB-AMR (.awb suffix files), depending on the audio setting.



PC side of things

1. Download proxy from www.analogx.com and install it, just setup everything using default, and run it thru start -->programs-->analogx-->proxy-->proxy

2. Determine which COM port your bluetooth is using by right-clicking on your bluetooth tray icon (where the time is displayed) and select Advance Configuration, then go to Local Services tab, EVERYTHING in there EXCEPT Bluetooth Serial Port should be made manual. i.e, ONLY Bluetooth Serial Port is automatic startup, and make sure that Secure Connection is not required. Do take note of the COM port in use, for me, mine is COM9.

3. Next, goto Control Panel -->Phone and Modem Options -->Modem(tabs) and do a ADD, remember to check Don't detect my modem;I will select it from List. and click next. Out pops a window, under manufacturers, select [Standard Modem Types], under Models select [Communications cable between two computers], click NEXT, selected ports should now point to the COM port you have found in step 2. For mi, i choose COM9. Then next next next till you are done. You will see an entry in the Modem(tab). Double-click on the Communication cable between two computers, and set maximum port speed to 115200.

4. Now right-click on your network neighbourhood, Make New Connection. Choose Accept Incoming Connections, Check the Communication cable between two computers(COM9-->again my own port no), click next, select Do not allow virtual private network connections and under users allowed to connect, to make things simple, juz check everything.. heehee.. next again, double-click on Internet Protocol, make sure the Allow callers to access my local area network is CHECKED, Specify TCP/IP Addresses from 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.254. Click OK, then click next, then click Finish.

6600 side of things

1. install the gnubox into your 6600 (fone memory or card is up to individual's preference)
2. go to tools-->settings-->connection-->access points-->options-->new access point-->use default settings. Ensure that the connection name=Bt, data bearer=High speed (GSM), dial-up number=any 3 digit, user name = a valid username in your pc, in my case, demouser1, prompt password=No, Password= (password for demouser1), Authentication=normal, Homepage=none, Data call type=Analogue, Maximum data speed=Automatic
3. Then select options-->Advance settings. Phone IP Address=Automatic, Primary Name server=0.0.0.0, Second.name server=0.0.0.0, Proxy serv.address (your pc's ip address, which can be gotten by start-->run-->command prompt-->ipconfig), proxy port number=6588 (the port used by analogx proxy server),Use callback=No, callback type=use server no., callback number=none,user PPP compression=YES,use login script=YES, Login Script=(Pls follow instruction in http://www.cs.helsinki.fi/u/mraento/symbian/bt-ap.html EXACTLY),Modem initialisation=None. Then back back back till you get back to your main menu.

4. You need to pair up your 6600 with your bluetooth dongle, and set it as authorized. After that, launch gnubox-->options-->2box Direct-->Infrared (Stay with me here.. important step). then options-->2box Direct-->Bluetooth-->select your pc. Then press on your menu button, and fireup your browser, mayb say Doris browser.

5. in Doris Browser, go to options-->preference-->proxy IP Address =(your pc ip),
proxy port=6588, the rest of the options set as default.

6. then try to go to a url




Copying Files From PC To Phone

While some files are sent to your phone by a provider through MMS, others have been copied to your computer and have to be sent to your phone for installation. There are a number of ways of transferring files between your computer and your phone. The 6600 has Bluetooth and Infrared (I/R) connections available to it. The best way of copying files is by using these connections. If your computer doesn't have bluetooth or I/R capabilities, there are many bits of hardware on the market that plug into a USB drive and enable Bluetooth or Infrared connections (check links for example products).

Bluetooth is usually a preffered method as it is alot faster than an I/R connection and doesn't need a clear sight to maintain a connection as I/R does and has a larger range (usually around 10m).

-If you are using a plug-in device, install it using the software and instructions provided. Also turn on either the Bluetooth or I/R connection on your phone, whichever you are using. Goto MENU--CONNECTIONS for this and select either Bluetooth or Infrared

-If you are using Bluetooth, it is a good idea to change the name of your phone so that it can be easily recognised. Goto MENU--CONNECTIONS--BLUETOOTH and go down to "My Phone's Name" and change it to something you would recognise.

-Once all the connection devices are ready, use your PC to search for the phone. If you are using infra-red, make sure the phone's infrared port and the I/R port on your PC are pointing towards each other and that nothing is between them.

-Once a connection has been established, send the install file thats is on your PC to your phone. This will be received as a message on your phone once it has been sent.

-Open this message, and if te file is a working install file, the install process will start automatically.

NOTE: I recommend that you change your message setting to use the MMC memory as opposed to you phone memory some files are quite large and can eat up all your phones memory

Another way to copy files to your phone is by using a card reader to copy the file to your MMC (The removeable memory card). A Memeory card reader can easily be bought in most computer stores and once installed, the MMC from your phone can be place in its contents can be navigated from MY COMPUTER. I have never used this method myself.

NOTE: Only .SIS and .JAR files can be used on the 6600. Old .jad files used for othe phone models DO NOT WORK on the 6600. Some .JAR files have also been known to cause problems for the 6600.


Installing Files

The Install Process is very basic once it is initiated. Files that are to be installed are usually located in your messages. Make sure your phone isn't about to run out of battery as well!
-Goto the file you want to install (usually located in your messages) and open it to start the installation procedure.

-The install procedure should start up automatically and ask you if you would like to install the program contained in the file.

-Choose yes and the process will continue. It will then ask you where to copy the file to, phone memory or Memory Card. I recommend using the memory card as programs can usually take up alot of space and the phone memory is not very large. Chose the prefered option and the process will continue.

-Some times the process will stop and tell you that a certificate has not been recognised and do you want to continue. It is usally safe to continue with installation if you are confidant that the source you got the file from is trustworthy. If however you have obtained the files from an unknow source (Kaza for instance) there might be a small (Very Small) risk that the file is not trustworthy. I have never had any problems with any of the hundreds of files i have used

-Once the installation process is finished, you can start using the program. Most programs turn up as an icon at the bottom of you MENU screen. (You can now delete the origional install file to save space).


NOTE: All the files i hvae put up on this site have been tested by me and, as far as i know, are working 100% . However the user downloads and installs these files at their own risk. I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong with connection to these files



Uninstalling Files

I got an e-mail the other day from a Wessel Rauch concerning uninstalling programs on the 6600 and it made me realise that i (stupidly) hadn't added it to the Install Files Tutorial I did a while back. So here is a quick explanantion of how you can delete those pesky programs:
Go into the Menu on your phone (press the blue 'menu' key on the left hand side of the phone)
Cycle through the menu till you come to an option that says "Manager" and open it (either by pressing the joystick in or using Options - Open)
The Manger (or the App. Manger) is a list of all programs that are installed on the phone be it on the MMC card or the phones memory
The Manager sometimes takes a few seconds to load all the information. You'll hear a beep upon opening the Manager and then a beep once the list is loaded (or you can just wait till it allows you to scroll down)
Once the list is loaded, cycle through it till you come to the name of the program you want to uninstall
Once the target program is highlighted, press the "clear" button (The button with the 'c' on it which is on the right hand side of the phone
A warning will come up asking you if you really want to remove the application Yes or No
Click 'Yes' to completeley remove the program from your phone or click 'No' to keep it or if you have made a mistake.

There are a couple of notes i would also like to add about unistalling programs:
Once a program is removed it can only be re-installed if you have the orgional install file you used to install it in the first place
Sometimes the name of the program you want to uninstall isn't given a recognisable name in the App. Manger List. If this is the case you should use your own common sense to try and decide which one is reffering to the program you want to remove. If you are unsure you risk deleting a program you didn't want to lose
On rare occasions, the program won;t be listed in the App. Manager List at all. If this is the case you will have to use a file manger like F-Explorer or File Man to find and delete the files you want removed
Sorry if some parts of te tutorial seemed a bit over-simplistic but some readers really are beginners at this

Well i hope that helps some of you out there...



Note 1: It is a good idea to let set your MMS and SMS messages to be kept on your MMC, not on your phone memory. Any MMS or SMS's currently on your phone's memory, it is suggested you move them over to the MMC.

Note 2: You must have some sort of file managing software to do this. Download and install such an application before beginning this guide! I recommend FExplorer or SeleQ.

-- STEP ONE -- THE INSTALLER --
First Get the BLZ installer and your desired game.

Send the BLZ-Installer to your phone, it should be a *.SIS file, if it is not, then it is probably a *.ZIP or *.RAR, unpack the *.SIS file from the archive, then send it. DO NOT send the *.ZIP or *.RAR files to your phone.

Install the application.

-- STEP TWO -- THE GAME FILE --
Next, you need to get the game ready. Game files are in the *.BLZ format. Like the BLZ-Installer, if the game file is not a *.BLZ file, unpack the archives until you find the *.BLZ file.

You may need to do this a few times, because usually games are packed more than once.

Once you have the *.BLZ game file unpacked, send this to your phone.

-- STEP THREE -- INSTALLATION --
Open your installed file manager and find the *.BLZ game file in one of the mail folders (Example -- e:\system\mail\XXXX) and copy the file to the root directory of the MMC (Example -- e:\). Now Close the file manager.

Run the BLZ-Installer. Now you should see the game listed there. Select Option and then Install. Wait for the process to finish. The game should then be installed.

If you followed the procedure correctly and everything went well, you should see a new Icon, that is the game.

PLAY IT!!


-- UNINSTALL THE GAMES -- by ady199 --


For anyone else who wants to to how to remove the games

Download SeleQ or FExplorer

Remove the folder:
E:\System\Apps\Game Name

(ie motogp, sonicn)

Remove folder:
C:\System\Apps\Game Name

Thats it!



Deleting leftover Game/App Icons

When a .jar installs it will drop files into to different parts of the system directory on the mmc The .jar file along with a couple of files will sit in the e/system/midlets folder.

In the e/system/apps folder you will find corresponding files for each of the games normally named something like this [101b7b5a] inside these folders you will find a couple of files one being a .txt file you can open these and it will tell you what game they are associated with.

Makes sure that these folders are also deleted if they are still there after the uninstallation and then reboot. you should then hopefully have gotten rid of the icons that have nbeen left behind.



Keylocked Backlight
Press the power button to switch on the backlight when keylock is applied so you can see the keys to unlock the keypad.

Handy Flashlight
If you ever need a flashlight in a pinch, simply remove the phone's swappable faceplate (it's held on by the tab at the top of the phone and some pressure on the sides) and the blue LEDs that light up the keypad will light your way.

Simple Task Manager
Press and hold the menu key (the one with the squiggly connecting things on). A list of running programs appears on the left side on the screen. You can close running programs by highlighting them and pressing c.

Booting Phone with no 'Auto Start' Apps Running
To make sure that no memory-resident programs start when you reboot your phone, hold down the pencil key when you turn the phone on. I don't have anything running on my phone that this affects, but the idea is that you can stop some of those apps – say Handy Day or something like it – that starts up automatically when you restart the phone.

Repeating Events
The Calendar GUI does not support repeating events based on the day of the week (i.e. third Sunday). A workaround is to enter the event on a Palm device and beam the event to the 3650.

Deleting all events from the calendar
To delete all events from the calendar (or those before a certain date), change to the Month view, then from the Options menu choose Delete Entry. The drop down menu lets you choose from “all entries” or “before date”.

Easier Handy Flashlight
Download the Torch application and run it. All it does is turn on the backlightFlashlight

Change the wallpaper
You can change this by going to the following Tools -> Settings -> Phone -> Standby Mode, then selecting Yes and choosing the image you would like to use as your background.

Turn off camera sound
Turn off the “click” sound made by the camera by selecting the 'Silent' profile or by turning warning tones off:
Menu > Profiles > “select your activated profile” > Personalise > Warning tones > Off.
(This also effects the sound of Java games and apps).



How to connect your N-Gage to your PC

Step 1.
Before you do anything. Place your MMC into your phone and format it.

Step 2.
Place the N-Gage disc (that comes with the phone) into your cd rom.

If youve got XP: Connect your N-Gage to your pc with the USB cable. Leave windows to find all the necessary drivers automatically. Your MMC in your N-Gage will now be recognised as a removeable drive in 'My Computer'.

If you havent got XP: Do the same as above. If nothing happens, run the program on the N-Gage disc and install any drivers you find.

If any of the above does not work click Here

Step 3.
Once the MMC is recognised by your PC, simply drag and drop any files you want onto the MMC (removeable drive).

Step 4.
Download FExplorer from HERE and place the file on your MMC.
Once on the MMC go to your menu then Tools --> Manager --> FExplorer --> Options --> Install

Follow all the on screen intructions. This has installed a file browser for you N-Gage. You can now access all the files on your N-Gage and MMC which 'Manager' can't see (like Java games).



Some usefull n-gage tips:

1. You cant use the USB cable unless a MMC is inserted into the N-Gage.

2. You can only use Multimedia Cards in the N-Gage. SD cards DO NOT work.

3. If you brought your N-Gage in the UK there is no need to purchase a MMC, as one is provided with the phone (Nokia Game Card is also a MMC).

4. You can find free games and applications at www.my-symbian.com

5. All the apps and games available for the 3650/7650 will work on your N-Gage (except those associated with a camera).

6. For full specifications of the phone click Here.

7. The N-Gage doesnt have a camera and most likely never will. If it did it would connect via the USB port or bluetooth.

8. The N-Gage does have removeable fascias, but doesnt appear to be promoted by Nokia. Third party fascias only.

9. PC Suite is only used to backup/restore your calendar and contacts files. It is therefore unecessary to purchase a blutetooth adapter and install PC Suite unless intended for that purpose.

10. You must fully charge your phone before using it to allow maximum capacity.

11. You can use MMC that are larger than 128mb. A 512mb card has been tried and tested by numerous members and all have praised it. Search the forum for more info.

Series 60 FAQ: E-Mail Issues

Contents
1. Setting up an e-mail account on the phone.
2. Error Message: General System Error.
3. Able to receive but not send email.
4. Can I automatically check my email every x minutes?

1. Setting up an e-mail account on the phone.
This can be done by filling in all the relavent settings. You need both an access point (a general GPRS data access point, not a WAP GPRS access point) and an e-mail account defined.

Nokia users however, may find it easier to use the Nokia auto configurator. This is available [here.]

Many Nokia country-specific sites also have this service. Check your coutries Nokia website for this.

2. Error Message: General System Error.
This is sometimes seen when connecting to an e-mail box. With some providers the gateway IP address used for Email collection needs to be 0.0.0.0. You can change this setting in your Access Point Settings (available under Tools --> Connections).

Alternatively some internet service providers do not allow you to collect POP3 mail when you are connecting to their mail server via a different ISP. You are connecting via a different ISP if you are using your phone. Your ISP in this case is your operator.


3. Able to receive but not send email.
You are probably trying to use you PC's ISP email server (smtp.myisp.co.uk). Many ISPs block there smtp server for people not connecting to the internet via themselves. This prevents the servers being used for spam. This is annoying for mobile phone users as it means they can not use their ISP's servers from their phones.

However most operators provide a smtp server that you can use. You should contact your operator for details.

4. Can I automatically check my email every x minutes?
This is possible with 3rd party software from [Cibenix] called Active Mail.




Nokia Symbian FAQ: Memory Cards

Contents
1. Can I use SD cards with my 3650?
2. What sizes of MMC cards are supported?
3. What can I store on my MMC?

1. Can I use SD cards with my 3650?
No you can not use SD (Secure Digital) cards with your 3650. Only MMC cards will work. This is despite the fact most devices / gadgets using SD support MMC. The reverse is not true. There is a slight difference in size. MMC cards are thinner.

2. What size of MMC cards are supported?
You will have no problems with the following sizes: 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 MB. There may be some problems with 256 MB cards (which in any case are not widely available). This may be fixed by a future firmware update. However for the time being I advise you not to buy a 256 MB card specifically for your 3650. If you already have one and it works let us know about it.

3. What can I store on my MMC?
You can store anything on your MMC card. Programs will run from your MMC card (you can choose to install programs to the memory card at install time). There may be some performance degradation from running programs and/or files from the MMC (when either accessing and especially when writing files to the MMC). However this is rarely noticeable and given the limited main memory it is advisable to use MMC memory for everything possible.

Note that you can change your photos, videos, messages and contacts to be stored on the MMC. The option to change the storage to the MMC is within the “settings” section of each of the applicable programs.

Howto] to free more RAM on your S60 phone

As you might know, the Nokia 3650 doesn't have as much RAM as for instance the
Nokia 6600 and N-Gage but there are two ways to get more free (usable) RAM:

>>> Method 1: Flight mode:

Put your 3650 in "Flight mode" with Psiloc System Tools. Install System Tools, open it and select "Flight mode". This way you can restart
the phone without your SIM card so there will be no running phone tasks in the background. Now you can have up to 3,5 MB of free RAM!

Note: ironically enough, Flight mode doesn't work when Smart Launcher is installed, at least in my case. :-(
But i've also heard several reports of people who have both apps running without any problems. ;-)

>>> Method 2: Smart Launcher trick:

Install Smart Launcher and open it. Go to Options, Settings and put Launcher ON.
Now plug in your charger and switch off your 3650. Wait untill the battery meter appears and short press the Menu button (don't hold).
The menu should appear and now you can have 3,5 to 4,5 MB free RAM! (Hold Menu button to check RAM).

The trick is that with the charger plugged in, the phone must get a minimum software support for charging, even when
the phone is switched off. And somehow Smart Launcher has still got it's shortcut running and that's the Menu button. So when
you press the Menu button, you go directly to the Menu without any other phone tasks running in the background so
you trick the phone and you have more free RAM!

Note: when you unplug the charger, the phone will switch off.

Using one of the above methods will let you run big games (e.g. Doom) and apps without getting those annoying "memory low" messages. :-)

But both ways obviously do have two major disadvantages: you can't make phone calls or use Bluetooth while using these methods.

[Explained] Drives on symbian phones

Disk C: - storage ("disk") memory. 4 MB (about 3,6 MB free for the user). This disk is used for storing user data, files and applications. Disk C: is a Flash disk, which means that it preserves its contents even when the power is off or the battery is removed. This memory cannot be expanded. If you need more storage memory, you can use one of the compression tools like Smart Compress or Space Doubler.

Disk D: (in Nokia 3650 - Disk E - RAM-disk (400 kilobytes). This disk is meant for internal system use. Some applications temporarily store their data on this disk, which makes them work faster (RAM memory is much faster than Flash). It is useless to save any user data on D: because all contents of this disk are lost when you switch the phone off or reboot the system.

Disk Z: - read only Flash memory (16 Megabytes). Contains firmware (operating system). Contents of Z: drive cannot be modified by the user. Firmware upgrade can only be made by authorized service centres using special Flash programming devices and Nokia service software called Phoenix.

Operating memory (RAM) - this memory is for executing installed applications. The size is 4 MB (of which ~3 MB are available). You cannot install anything to this memory and you cannot expand it.

(Nokia 3650 only) Memory card (disk D - 16 MB MMC (Multimedia card). Flash memory for user data and applications. You can use this memory to install more programs, store large files (movies, audio, pictures etc). Can be replaced with any other MMC card - up to 1GB.

If you still have problems with understanding the memory structure of Nokia 3650/7650 phones, think of disk C: as of internal hard disk of your PC, MMC in 3650 as of second hard disk and operating memory as of RAM of your desktop.





Operator Logos Explained

The operator logo is the picture on top of your phone screen, in most cases is the name of your operator.

How to change it for a nice picture? You can do this by diferent ways:

First create this folder if you dont have it:

C:\System\Apps\Phone\Oplogo\

The operator logo will be stored on it...)

You can use FExplorer (any jpeg/bmp, no resize), seleQ (any image, it will resize it) --> select the image you want be operator logo, select options-file-set as operator logo.

You can make your own logo:

The operator logos have the following format:

COUNTRYCODE_NETWORKCODE_SUBNETCODE.BMP

For example, for Spain:

Amena: 214 03 -> 214_3_0.BMP
Movistar: 214 07 -> 214_7_0.BMP
Vodafone: 214 01 -> 214_1_0.BMP

In the PHILIPPINES:
Smart: 515 01
Globe: 515 02

The size for bmp is 97 x 25 pixels.

Also, you can store diferent logos for diferent operators. For example if you change your SIM to other operator, you will see the other logo, or if you travel to other countries, you can store diferent logos for the operators in this countries.

You have a list of country codes and network codes here , just ignore the first "0" in network code if any.

If you want to delete the logo to restore the original (name of the operator) just delete the bmp file from c:\system\apps\phone\oplogo.

How to copy & paste text:
Press and hold the pencil key and select your text using the scroll key.
Left function key will change to 'Copy'. Press it to copy the selected text to clipboard.
You can paste the clipboard contents the same way:
press and hold the pencil key and press 'Paste'. Or, press pencil key once and select 'Paste'.

· Press and hold the Menu key to open the application switching window, where you can *duh* switch between applications.
If a program hangs and you can't shut it down, select the application in the
application switching window and press 'C' to kill it. It's also a faster way to exit programs.

· Turn on/off the "click" sound made by the camera by selecting the 'Silent' profile or by turning warning tones on/off:
Menu > Profiles > "select your activated profile" > Personalise > Warning tones > On/Off.
(This also effects the sound of Java games and apps).



Hold pencil key and scoll down to mark multiple items in e.g. Inbox (sms), Images,
RealOne Player, Notes, To-do-list, etc. Press and scroll up/down again to unmark.



Keyboard shortcuts for zooming and rotating images in Images:
1 = zoom in, 0 = zoom out, press and hold to return to the normal view.
2 = rotate anticlockwise, 9 = rotate clockwise, * = full screen.


In standby mode. press scroll key center (joystick) to go directly to Contacts.

In standby mode, press and hold 0 to launch your wap home page.

In Menu or any subfolder, press numbers 1 - 9 to start the application at that location.

you have your keylock activated just press the on/off button to turn on your backlight
to look at the time when it's dark without having to unlock the keypad.


Start your text message (sms) with *0# and you'll recieve and sms back
with details on when the message was recieved by the recipient.


Start up in Safe Mode so no 'auto start' apps will be running:
To make sure that no memory-resident programs start when you reboot your phone,
hold down the pencil key when you turn on the phone and hold it on untill you have to enter your PIN code.
(When you have trouble booting up the phone with the MMC in it because it got corrupted for some reason, this trick will
almost always let you boot up the phone so you can remove the latest installed app which might have caused the
problem or if your phone is "unrepairable" you can still back up your important data before you do a format.)



App Close Main!

You can fix the app close main error..

1) Open your filemanager/explorer
2) Go to c:/system/bootdata & delete FirstBoot.dat
3) Turn off phone & take out your MMC card
4) Turn on phone and put in current time/date
5) Wait for it to boot up then turn off phone again.
6) Put MMC back in and turn on phone.

This fixes the "App. Closed Main" error.



The ultimate guide to get a ******* .app file on your nokia 6600/7650/3650/3660

1. Install a filemanager like FExplorer or SeleQ

2. Connect your phone to a pc via BT or infrared.

3. Install the application .sis file

4. Once installed, send the .app to the phone, should be in message inbox.

5. Now open the filemanager on the phone.

6. Go to the directory of you inbox, should be either "c:\system\mail\" or "e:\system\mail\", the .app should be in one of the folders.

7. Once you found it, copy the file.

8. Now goto to the folder of the application you installed, which should be something like "e:\system\apps\nameofapplication" (assuming you installed to youe MMC) and paste the .app file.

9. If it asked to overwrite, just click Yes.

10. Now launch the application. It should be ok now.




Repairing A Corruptted MMC.


Correct Treatment of your MMC:

Physically, memory cards are quite fragile pieces of high technology, susceptible to damage from various silly things like excessive heat, condensation, strong magnetic fields, physical damage from rough handling and/or bending! (similar to most electronic devices then..)

Given the natue of mobile memory card products, they are constantly being taken in and out of some form of interface with a mobile phone, a camera, a laptop, or desktop PC, or a separate memory card reader. The number of different devices they have to be able to interact with is in the thousands.

It is not too surprisingly, then that sometimes the state of the file system on the memory card can get damaged.

This may happen for a number of different reasons, including:


> removing the card from a device whilst an application is trying to read/write to it.. (Just be patient...)
> battery drain on a device whilst in use meaning an insufficent voltage failure whilst writing to the card.
> a poor implementation of the MMC standard on the device using the card
> poor connectivity software drivers on the device or the Windows PC/Mac
> physical damage like card or device being dropped, bent, getting wet etc...
> lots of others i am sure..


As often as not, the problem is not terminal for your memory card, but just a software issue ( or in physical terms, it could be called "a temporary disalignment of the all the bits and bytes on the card").

The fix for this problem is the same as for any other file storage device (like a floppy or hard drive) with corrupt or invalid file system, namely; re-format the file system.

Re-Formatting your MobyMemory MMC Card:

It is possible that your mobile will offer you the option of formatting the memory card if it is found to be invalid. (However, the likes of Nokia nGage, Nokia 6600, and Siemens Sx1 often just prefer to reject the media as corrupted).

In that case, to format the card, you will need access to one or more of the following:


> A Windows PC or Mac.
> A separate multi-format memory card reader (verify that it is compatible with the MultiMediaCard -MMC- standard).
> (This can come in USB or PCMCIA flavours. If USB, try and ensutre it is a USB2 device.
> Alternatively, many of the newest laptop and desktop PCs now come with integrated Multi-format memory card readers.
> If you are using a separate memory card reader, then connect it up to your PC, and let windows recgnize the device through plug-and-play.


Now you can insert your MobyMemory card into the appropriate slot in the memory card reader. (Please note that because the MMC card is pretty much symmetrical it is very easy to insert it upside-down in the slot).

Open up [Windows Explorer] (or the equivalent for MAC users..sorry not well-versed in OS X).

There should be at least one icon visible for a [Removable Drive] in the list of available drives. (in fact, there is often a list of about 5 or 6 Removable drives, one for each of the different Memory card formats that your reader is compatible with).

Find the drive that is mapped to the MMC card by clicking on each in turn until it confirms there is a drive present. (Sometimes it is easiest to do this by trying a fully-functional MMC card in the MMC slot first so you can confirm which drive letter it is.)

(NB. It will always be labelled as a [Removable Drive], don't mistake it for one of your PC hard drives like [C:] drive, as that could be catastrophic later on!)

At this stage it may give an error message saying that the drive is unreadable.

By right-clicking on the drive letter, it will provide the option of formatting the drive.

Select format the drive, and the [Format Drive] dialog will appear (Double-check again to make sure it not your [C:] drive!).

There is only one setting to focus on in this page, and that is to ensure that the FileSystem selected for formatting is the [FAT] option (not FAT32, or NTFS or any other option)

(Note: All mobile phones, to my knowledge, and most cameras (etc..) use the FAT file system (or at least are compatible with it) on their memory card media.)

Now click on Format Now ( ensure [Quick Format] is not selected as this will not actually restore the file system space byte by byte, but only resets the header information so the drive thinks its empty again. This may not be enought to solve your corruption problem.)

The PC will now - hopefully!- chug away happily until it has restored the memory card space back to its original configuration (of course, any information on there is long gone by now!).

If you recieve an error message back from the [Format Now] request, then your problem may be more permanent, and not just a software issue. In this case, it may still respond to a format request in a different memory card reader or device.

If you believe it to be a failure of manufacture, then the warranty on the card offers the prospect of a replacement card, subject to a confirmation of the fault upon return of the goods.





FExplorer Tips & Tricks

* How to reset the operator logo :
1) go to the following dir :
c:\system\apps\phone\oplogo
2) delete any file in this directory
3) restart the phone

* to make a screenshot on a Nokia 3650, 6600 :
1) use the pencil key + '0'

* to make a screenshot on a SX1 :
1) use the shift key + '0'

* remember, there are some shortcuts :
<KeyPad 1> : copy
<KeyPad 4> : cut
<KeyPad 7> : paste
<KeyPad *> : go to root
<KeyPad 3> : PageUp
<KeyPad 6> : top of the list
<KeyPad 9> : PageDown
<KeyPad #> : file properties

* 'send command' fails new firmware
with some new firmware, some users have reported that the 'send command' (thru bluetooth, IR, ...) fails; it's due to a 'copyrigth protection' introduced in the new OS (!!!!), this happens only with some kind of files (eg: .SIS), in such case, simply rename the file (eg: wtih .SIS_ ) before trying to send them.

Can't Uninstall Applications via Manager?

When you cant uninstall an application(most of the time Java games) using the Manager function of the phone, then do this;

1. Install FExplorer.

2. Launch it and goto the path/folder of the Application. I'm assuming you have install it to the MMC so the path would be something like,

E:\system\apps

and you will see lots of folders in there that is only labelled by numbers(for Java games/apps) or the name of the application. Go though them one by one. Open the text file in that folder to exactly know the name of the application in that particular folder if you dont see any icons or familiar name.

3. Then if its the correct folder, "move-out" of the folder, click on Options>File>Delete.

4. Then goto the Manager to uninstall it if its still listed.

5. Reboot.




I know IR is old skool but hey, it comes handy at times especially when BT acts-up on you

This procedure assumes that the infrared device is connected to a serial port on your computer. Use this procedure only if Windows did not automatically install an infrared device when you turned on your computer. Typically, Universal Serial Bus (USB), PCMCIA, and other Plug and Play-compliant infrared devices are automatically detected and installed.

To add a new infrared device:
01. Click Start, point to Control Panel, and then click Add Hardware.
02. The Add Hardware Wizard starts.
03. Click Next.
04. Click Yes, I have already connected the hardware, and then click Next.
05. In the Installed hardware list, click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
06. Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced), and then click Next.
07. In the Common hardware types box, click Infrared devices, and then click Next.

Do one of the following:

01. If you do not have an installation disk for the infrared device, click the manufacturer of the device in the Manufacturer list, click the infrared device that best matches your hardware in the Infrared Device list, and then click Next.

02. If you have a manufacturer's installation disk for a compatible driver, click Have Disk. Insert the manufacturer's installation disk into the appropriate drive, and then click Next.
Follow the instructions that are displayed on the remaining pages of the Add Hardware Wizard to install the infrared device.


View the Properties of an Infrared Device
To use this procedure, there must be an infrared device installed on your computer. Note that the settings for the infrared device are configured automatically when you install the device, and typically do not have to be changed. To view the properties of an infrared device:

01. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Wireless Link.

02. Click the Hardware tab, click the infrared device for which you want to view properties, and then click Properties.


Configure a Serial Port for Infrared Communication
Your computer must support an infrared mode for a serial port. Use this procedure to install an IrDA transceiver that is provided by the computer manufacturer. To configure a serial port for infrared communication:

01. Start the BIOS configuration utility for your computer. Note that the method for starting the BIOS configuration utility varies from one computer to another. For many computers, you can start the BIOS configuration utility by pressing a function key that is indicated during the computer startup process. Some computers require that you start by using special configuration disks. For more information about how to enter BIOS Setup, see your computer manufacturer's documentation.

02. In the peripheral or serial port configuration section, change the mode to IrDA or Infrared.


Troubleshooting
Installing an IrDA transceiver disables the serial port. Do not attach a serial IrDA transceiver to a serial port.



Gmail On Your Mobile

Ever since i joined Gmail I've been waiting impatiently for POP3 support so i could access my mail on my phone. Earlier this month Google finally came up with the goods and his week POP3 support was finally turned on for my account (Gmail were giving it to people periodically). So how easy is it to get Gmail on your phone?
The Settings
Native E-mail Client
ProfiMail
E-Mail Sender
WAP Access
Gmail Atom Feed

NOTE: You have to enable POP3 Access in your Gmail settings. There are instructions here if you are unsure how to do this

UPDATE1: See Native E-Mail Client and Gmail Atom Feed
UPDATE2: Consync have a good guide to getting Gmail on mobiles running Windows Mobile
UPDATE3: LonelyCat have solved the problem with Port 465 in release 1.31 of ProfiMail. If you are using Version 1.31 or later, then use Port 465 instead of Port 587

The Settings
The setting for Gmail are as follows:
Incoming Mail Server (POP3): pop.gmail.com on Port 995
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com on Port 587 (Note: Port 465 didn't seem to work)
UPDATE: LonelyCat have solved the problem with Port 465 in release 1.31 of ProfiMail. If you are using Version 1.31 or later, then use Port 465 instead of Port 587
SMTP requires Authorisation
Both of these require SSL to be activated




Native E-mail Client
It immediately became apparent after trying various setting, that i couldn't use the native e-mail client that came with the 6600 (in MESSAGES) as it didn't support SMTP authentication (as required by Gmail). A quick search of the better Nokia forums found that this indeed was the case. So the answer was to find a third-party application that would support SMTP authentication.
UPDATE: This problem seems to only effect the 6600 and the N-Gage. The Native E-mail Clients for both the 7610 and the 6630 work as long as you put "SECURITY" to "ON" which enables the SSL

ProfiMail
Supports Nokia 7650/3650/N-Gage/6600, Siemens SX1, SendoX, Sony Ericsson Pxxx, Motorola A92x,A1000
For me the obvious choice was ProfiMail which i had heard good things about. The latest version (V1.23) had fixed all the minor issues the initial releases had and is perhaps one of the best e-mail client around. Once i had paid for the program and registered, i started to set up the phone.

Setting the account up on ProfiMail couldn't be easier. Open up the application and it will automatically as you if you want to set up a new account. If this doesn't come up click MENU-ACCOUNT-NEW. This should being up the account set-up screen (left). Under "Account Name" enter what you would like the account to be called (e.g. Gmail) followed by your e-mail address and "Display Name" (which could be the same as the Account Name). Under "Mail Server Type" make sure "POP3" is chosen. Then "Incoming Mail Server" is "pop.gmail.com" and "Outgoing Mail Server" is "smtp.gmail.com". Under user name fill in your full Gmail address (i.e. username@gmail.com) followed by the password. If you don't click "Get Entire Message" ProfiMail will only download the message headers not the whole e-mail, the choice is yours.

Now click on "Advanced Settings" which will bring up a new set-up menu (right). Leave "Secure Pop Login" unchecked and check "SMTP Authentication" (as seen on the right). Leave the SMTP username and password blank. Under "POP3 Port" put "995" and under "SMTP Port" put "587" (UPDATE: LonelyCat have solved the problem with Port 465 in release 1.31 of ProfiMail. If you are using Version 1.31 or later, then use Port 465 instead of Port 587). Finally check both "Use SSL for POP3" and "Use SSL for SMTP". Then click "Done" twice and you're finished, ProfiMail can connect to your account and you can send e-mail as well.





E-Mail Sender
If for some reason you only want to send e-mails from your phones or want a cheaper alternative, E-Mail Sender could be an option. This e-mail client does support SMTP Authentication but can only send e-mails not receive them. This is ideal for people who only want to use their e-mail to Moblog or only need one way communication.

WAP Access
Supports any WAP enabled phone

Now for those of you who don't have a phone that can install ProfiMail and/or don't have native e-mail clients (or perhaps people who don't want to pay $20 for ProfiMail even though its worth every cent!), don't despair!
there is also a way of checking your Gmail account via WAP thanks to GmailWireless.com. The people at GmailWireless have used code from the Gmail-Mobile Project to set up a page which you can visit via WAP on your mobile and log directly into your Gmail account. I've tried this out personally (left and right) and it works like a charm. All you have to do is go to their main page and register, it's as easy as that!

Gmail Atom Feed
A while back Gmail added an Atom Feed as a new feature which lead to the creation of Gmail Checker. It's a great little Midlet that runs on the 7610 and the 6600 (UPDATE: Also supports Sony Ericsson P900/P910 (when the Equifax certificate is installed), Orange C500 and the Treo 600). However, Gmail seem to have removed the Atom Feeds for some reason! This is a good option to keep in mind however as they might include Atom Feeds in the final release of Gmail if indeed they don't reintroduce it sooner. (UPDATE: It seems Gmail haven't removed their Atom Feed feature, but it is only working for a limited number of people. Check your own Gmail Features to see if it's available to you)





Bluetooth Connection

There are several methods you can use to set up bluetooth so that your phone can communicate with your computer. This is highly recommended; if you routinely need to connect your phone to your computer, please buy a bluetooth dongle. It will save you much aggravation in the long run by circumventing the need to use the DKU-2 usb cable provided with the phone. The DKU-2 cable is usable, but intensely frustrating for everything except very occasional phonebook synchronizations, and one-time application installation. This guide will demonstrate how to install bluetooth on your PC, and pair your computer with your phone such that they may communicate.

Installing bluetooth on your PC:

First, you will require bluetooth to be installed properly on your PC. This will not be an issue if your computer came with bluetooth installed, but for those who purchased a USB Bluetooth dongle, please follow exactly the instructions provided with the device.

The most important piece of advice for computers running Windows XP SP2 and above, is to install the drivers provided with the bluetooth dongle before plugging in the dongle. If you do not do this, you will be using the standard microsoft bluetooth drivers, which is generally slower and less compatible that Widcomm drivers. If you do want to use this, Microsoft has provided a user guide. Also, if you install Service Pack 2 over your existing Windows XP installation, read these two help articles if you have having problems with bluetooth device detection or connectivity issues. [One], [two]

If you have unfortunately plugged in the bluetooth device before installing the provided drivers, unplug the bluetooth device, and do the following:
Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\inf in the Open box, and then click OK.
Right-click Bth.inf, and then click Rename.
Rename Bth.inf to Bth.bak, and then press ENTER.
Install the third-party Bluetooth driver.





Also, you should have no problems installing bluetooth if you're using a Mac, because it's generally preinstalled, and the Mac drivers generally don't have installation issues.

Connecting your computerr to your phone using PC Suite:

1. On your Nokia 7160: Select the folder "Connect" and then "Bluetooth".

2. Make sure "Bluetooth" is On and "My Phone's Visibility" is "Shown to all". Remember what is in "My Bluetooth Name" - or edit it to one of your choice.

3. Open Nokia PC Suite, then open "Manage Connections."

4. Select "Bluetooth (Microsoft)" or "Bluetooth (WIDCOMM)" as appropriate.

5. Click "Configure" then "Next"

6. Select whatever you wrote in "My Bluetooth Name." Click "Next."

7. Note the number in "Passcode", Click "Next."

8. Read "General Notes" below




Connect your computer to your phone without PC Suite (Widcomm Drivers):

1. On your Nokia 7160: Select the folder "Connect" and then "Bluetooth".

2. Make sure "Bluetooth" is On and "My Phone's Visibility" is "Shown to all". Remember what is in "My Bluetooth Name" - or edit it to one of your choice.

3. Right click on the Bluetooth Icon in the system tray; click "Bluetooth Setup Wizard"

4. Select "I want to find a specific Bluetooth device and configure how this computer will use its services." Click "Next"

5. Select whatever you wrote in "My Bluetooth Name." Click "Next."

6. Type in a PIN Code. 123 will do. Click "Initiate Pairing." "Passcode for Tosh" will appear on your phone. Type in the PIN Code. Do this reasonably quickly, because there is a timeout.

7. Select whatever services you require, then click "Finish."

8. Read "General Notes" below.



Connect Mac OS X to your phone:

1. On your Nokia 7160: Select the folder "Connect" and then "Bluetooth".

2. Make sure "Bluetooth" is On and "My Phone's Visibility" is "Shown to all". Remember what is in "My Bluetooth Name" - or edit it to one of your choice.

3. Open "Bluetooth Setup Assistant" under Applications/Utilities. Click "Continue."

4. Select "Mobile Phone" then click "Continue." Select whatever you wrote in "My Bluetooth Name."

5. On your Nokia 7610: Type in the number on the screen onto the phone, then accept "Yes" when asked if you would like to accept a connection from the computer.

6. Type in the internet access codes if you please, otherwise just click "Continue" then "Quit."

7. Read "General Notes" below




Applies to all devices, you should do this after pairing your phone.

1. By default any connections from your computer to the phone must be manually accepted. You have an option to set up a connection from the computer to your mobile as authorized, this means when you connect from the computer to the phone it won't ask you if it's ok and will connect automatically.

2. To make this automatic: On the phone in the Bluetooth Setting Screen, you joystick right to the Paired Devices screen, highlight the computer you are paired with: select"Options", select "Set as Authorized" and "Yes". You will then see a padlock icon beside the paired device - this device will no longer require manual authorization for connections.

3. Now you should set My phone's visibility to Hidden - so that unknown devices searching won't see your phone. You can still be connected to by any paired devices. Remember to switch it to "Visible" if you want to pair with a new device or receive a file / business card from someone with an unpaired device.

4. Note that you may check your phone's Bluetooth MAC address by going to the standby screen and typing (*#2820#) in standby screen.

Info

Skulls.B is a variant of SymbOS/Skulls.A trojan, which has similar functionality to the Skulls.A but uses different files.

Skulls.B is a malicious SIS file trojan that will replace the system applications with non-functional versions and drops SymbOS/Cabir.B worm in to the phone.

If Skulls.B is installed only the calling from the phone and answering calls works. All functions which need some system application, such as SMS and MMS messaging, web browsing and camera no longer function. And in addition of applications being disabled the phone is also infected with Cabir.B, which fortunately, is not able to activate automatically.

If you have installed Skulls.B, the most important thing is not to reboot the phone and follow the disinfection instruction in this description.

Disinfection

Same as for Skulls.A, but you need to delete a few more folders:

c:\system\apps\CamTimer\camtimer.app
c:\system\apps\CamTimer\camtimer.rsc
c:\system\apps\caribe\caribe.rsc
c:\system\apps\caribe\caribe.app

Info

This Trojan on a phone is a ******* version of the Mosquitos game, which runs on phones using the Symbian Series 60 Platform.

It is obtained by downloading a copy of the game from the Internet or through peer-to-peer networks.

It sends an SMS message to specific premium rate numbers and can charge affected users for the sent messages. Apparently, the affected numbers are from the United Kingdom (UK), Germany, Netherlands, and Switzerland regions only.

Unlike worms, it does not spread itself to other contacts in the phone.

Disinfection

Quit the Mosquitos game then perform the uninstallation procedure of the program.

Some more fixes for "App. Closed Main" error.


If you ever get the "App. Closed Main" error when you bootup, this will fix it.

Using your file explorer go to e:\system\programs
You will see some various files in there - but we are just gonna concentrate on the .exe files.
One or (some) of them are giving the error when you bootup.
Click them one by one and if it gives you an error, just delete it.
You can do this if you get any other error during bootup aswell.

This method surely gets rid of the boot up errors.



Sticky anyone?

Sometimes this is a problem, when you have deleted an application and its scattered remnants have been left in the memory either of your phone or on MMC card. When the phone boots up, of course it searches for the ‘badly’ removed application(s).

Another solution for avoiding such message as ‘App. Closed Main’ at all, is to use UnMakeSis software when you are removing application(s) from your phone. I usually open *.sis file on my PC with UnMakeSis to see which files to which folders are copied during the install process. When I remove application(s) from my phone, I also open *.sis file of a removed application using UnMakeSis and see which files might have been left during the removal process in the memory. Then I remove those remnants manually. Hope this also might help



How to free more RAM on your phone >>>

>>> Method 1: Flight mode:

Put your phone in "Flight mode" with Psiloc System Tools. Install System Tools, open it and select "Flight mode". This way you can restart the phone without your SIM card so there will be no running phone tasks in the background. Now you can have up to 3,5 MB of free RAM!

Note: ironically enough, Flight mode doesn't work when Smart Launcher is installed, at least in my case.
But i've also heard several reports of people who have both apps running without any problems.


Method 2: Smart Launcher trick:

Install Smart Launcher and open it. Go to Options, Settings and put Launcher ON.
Now plug in your charger and switch off your phone. Wait untill the battery meter appears and short press the Menu button (don't hold).
The menu should appear and now you can have 3,5 to 4,5 MB free RAM! (Hold Menu button to check RAM).

The trick is that with the charger plugged in, the phone must get a minimum software support for charging, even when
the phone is switched off. And somehow Smart Launcher has still got it's shortcut running and that's the Menu button. So when
you press the Menu button, you go directly to the Menu without any other phone tasks running in the background so
you trick the phone and you have more free RAM!
Note: when you unplug the charger, the phone will switch off.



Method 3: Menu :

This method I found it by myself, it frees a little about 100~200 KB but I guess it's useful sometime

Close your menu not by selecting the right selection key "exit", or pressing the menu key another time, they only hide the menu app but do not close it, to close it select the left selection key "option" and scroll down and select "exit"

So when you open an app needs more ram reopen menu and close it, it's useful when play low bit rate video in realplayer paradis.

MP3, OGG & WMA Codec for 6600.

Remember that long tutorial I did about having MP3's ringtones for 6600? Well ignore it! Just simply install this codec on your 6600 so that you could assign any MP3 file as your ringtone!

Experiment a bit on the bitrate. Sometimes high ones dont work or lags the phone.

Remember that long tutorial I did about having MP3's ringtones for 6600? Well ignore it! Just simply install this codec on your 6600 so that you could assign any MP3 file as your ringtone!

Experiment a bit on the bitrate. Sometimes high ones dont work or lags the phone.
