Tips n Tricks
1 : Do u know how to use the edit button (abc or pencil button)?Heres
how... in the inbox for example; u wanna delete multiple sms, simply
hold the edit button, scroll down, and then, press c to delete the
marked sms. The edit button can also b used to copy and past text in
sms, simply hold it and scroll across, choose copy. pretty good for
placing song names in ngages
Tip 2 : Shit happens, on a
smartphone, its inevitable u do something wrong, and tis calls for a
format of fone. to format the fone, press *#7370#, then enter the lock
code, which is the sec code of the fone. NOTE: batt must b full, else
if format is disrupted by low batt, consequences will b disatrous I
heard the code *#7780# works too, pretty much the same i tink.
6600 users, to format the fone, theres an alternative way. Press and
hold <3>, <*>, and the buttons, then power on fone, keep
holding on the 3 buttons, till u come to a format screen. tis method
ONLY works on 6600, and need not enter the sec code. BUT sec code wun
be reset to default 12345.
Tip 3 : TO NGAGE USERS; Did u
know u can install .sis files simply using the cable given? Juz plug it
in, place the .sis file anywhere on e: (the mmc), not in any folders,
root of e:, disconnect, then look for it in manager.
Save on battery and system memory being used by regulary checking the
task manager which can be accessed by holding down the menu button!!
Tip 4a: Set the screen saver to a short time out period to prolong battery life.
Tip 4b: Avoid restarting the phone, or repeatedly turning it on and off. This helps increase battery life.
Tip 7: If you would like to avoid being "blue jacked", keep bluetooth turned off, or set your phone's visibility to hidden.
9: Save memory when installing apps, by installing over bluetooth. This
can be done using the nokia phone suite and a bluetooth serial
connection. Only works with .SIS files, so java still has to be sent to
the phone, but will save space when using .SIS files.
10: Operator logosUse a filemanager like FExplorer or SeleQ to add the
folders: "c:/system/Apps/phone/oplogo". Add a .bmp picture to folder
"oplogo" and restart your phone! The .bmp picture size needs to be: 97
x 25 pixels
Tip 11: Check if the recepients phone is onDelivery reports
*0# your message in the message composer window space then write your
message, the recipient will not see the star zero hash bit - just the
message When they read it it will relay a message back to your fone
showing the time they recieved it. (haven't yet tried it myself though)
Tip 12: BlueJacking
up, you need to know what Bluetooth is. There are lots of types of
modern devices that incorporate Bluetooth as one of their many
features. PDAs, mobile phones and laptops are a few of these modern
devices. Bluetooth means that Bluetooth enabled devices can send things
like phonebook/address book contacts, pictures & notes to other
Bluetooth enabled devices wirelessly over a range of about 10 metres.
So, we've got past the boring part. Now, using a phone with Bluetooth,
you can create a phonebook contact and write a message, eg. 'Hello,
you've been bluejacked', in the 'Name' field. Then you can search for
other phones with Bluetooth and send that phonebook contact to them. On
their phone, a message will popup saying "'Hello, you've been
bluejacked' has just been received by Bluetooth" or something along
those lines. For most 'victims' they will have no idea as to how the
message appeared on their phone.
Tip 13: While you are
viewing a picture in your phone's gallery, press one of these shortcut
keys (definitely works on 6600, not sure about other symbians)1 - turn
image anticlockwise3 - turn image clockwise* - toggle on/off of full
screen5 - zoom in0 - zoom out

a folder by selecting THE folder and copy it then paste it somewhere.
however u need to make a new directory. fexplorer wun let u copy that
folder together. well seleQ can mark files to copy but it really takes
#16: A soft and Hard resetA Soft-reset - the process
of resetting all the settings of the phone to the factory default! No
applications are deleted! A Hard-reset is like formatting a drive! It
does format the memory. Everything that has been installed after the
first use of the phone is deleted! It will recover the memory of the
phone to the state you purchased it! It is done by inputing the
following code: *#7370# NOTE: The battery must be full or the charger
has to be connected to the phone so that it does not run out of power
and make the phone unusable.

WildSkinz on your Nokia 3650!!! WildSkinz screws upthe whole 3650
system. It was never intended to work on the 3650, only on the 7650.
Why assigning Video Recorder in the right or left soft key does not work?
(Sound Recorder is launched instead of Video Recorder)It's a bug with firmware version 2.50.
How to check your firmware version:
"Firmware" is the phone's operating system stored in internal Flash
memory of the device (disk Z.Manufacturers release new firmware
versions containing bug fixes, improvements and - sometimes - offering
new functions.Firmware upgrade can only be made in authorized Nokia
service centre (point).To check your current firmware version simply
type *#0000# on main Phone screen.
Start up in Safe Mode so no 'auto start' apps will be running:
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 willalmost always let you boot up the phone so
you can remove the latest installed app which might have caused
theproblem or if your phone is "unrepairable" you can still back up
your important data before you do a format.)
Q: How to
totally format your Nokia 3650 and remove all installed applications,
user files and restore allsettings to default like it's new out of the
box? (OEM apps won't be deleted like Camera and RealOne Player).
First Format your MMC: Menu > Extras > Memory > Options >
Format mem. card > Yes.Note: It is very important to format your MMC
before you format your phone!Then format your phone by typing *#7370#
on main Phone screen.Phone will ask: "Restore all original phone
settings? Phone will restart." Press 'Yes' and enter your Lock code
(default is 12345).Tip: Formatting takes several minutes so you'd
better connect your Nokia 3650to a charger to ensure that your battery
doesn't get empty in the middle of formatting.Note: All your created
acces points and mailboxes will be lost so take a note of them. And all
application settings will be reset.E.g. In Camera, image quality is set
back to normal and memory in use is set back to phone memory. And also
in Messages,memory in use is set back to phone memory, etc. Also backup
your contacts with PC Suite or a program like Contacts Manager.
To reset your wallet, should you forget your code,
this will reset the wallet code, the wallet contents will be deleted.
How to free more RAM on your phone
Method 1: Flight mode:
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!
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:
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 whenthe phone is switched off. And somehow Smart Launcher has
still got it's shortcut running and that's the Menu button. So whenyou
press the Menu button, you go directly to the Menu without any other
phone tasks running in the background soyou trick the phone and you
have more free RAM!Note: when you unplug the charger, the phone will
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
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.
