Nokia Secret Code & Some Tips

Tips / undocumented functions:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- 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.

- If 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.

- To keep the backlight on, run Torch (freeware), press and hold the Menu button and go somewhere else on the phone.

- To check your current firmware version simply type *#0000# in standby screen.

- To check your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) type *#06# in standby screen.

- To check your Bluetooth device address type *#2820# in standby screen.

- Start up in Safe Mode (no 'auto start' apps will be running): Hold down the pencil key when you turn on the phone and hold it on until you have to enter your PIN code.

- Format the phone memory by typing *#7370# in standby screen.

- In standby mode,

45# + <talk> dials the number on your sim in memory slot 45.
50# + <talk> dials slot 50 and so on.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*# 06 # Seriennummer/IMEI indicates (actually also a GSM is code - see further below)

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

*# 0000 # SW version announcements (e.g. V4.07.1.11.0,Rm=133)

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

*# 2820 # Bluetooth (BT) device address indicate

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

xx # Directory quick access (xx = storage location and afterwards lozenge e.g. 24 #)

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

A/from key Short pressing for menu for switching between profiles

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

Menu key Long pressing for "task manager" - switching between active programs (with "C" key programs can be terminated.)

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

Menu quick access Over in the menu e.g. to point 3.1 arrive simply 31 enter (if the third symbol a file is opened is for these and then in it started the first Programm/Icon).

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

Autostart go around When switching on of the Handys on to the pin inquiry the key "ABC" (pin) comes the whole time keeps pressed - this is to ignore (allegedly) the autoinitialization programs.

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

# Do not switch between different lines (AS)... goes e.g. with Austrian ONE Handys (see nose cunning). I could not try out however also, since I did not have 2 lines on the SIM map.

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

12345 ... is according to standard set the Nokia nokia-Sicherheitscode.

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

0000 ... is according to standard those (with Vodafone windshield frame section) set 2te pin and that standard net code/password
With D1 the standard net code is the last 4 numbers of the card number without HLR e.g. 99999234-5/55 - > 2345

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

0 - for a long time press If one the "0" in the main menue for a long time presses those homepage of the standard WAP connection is called.

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

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


Caution - starting from here the codes are "dangerous"

*#7370925538#
* # of res wallet # ... is to be deleted the code around the "wallet"! Input like normal telephone number (not in wallet code inquiry windows).
NOTE! Afterwards the "wallet" is empty, can again be put on however with new code.

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

*# 7780 # The "original attitudes" and telephone re-establishes is again started (an appropriate inquiry and it follow before must the sicherheitscode be entered).
NOTE! Afterwards various "attitudes" are away - among other things these:
?1 Points of entrance (Provider dependent points of entrance and attitudes)
?2 Bluetooth attitudes
?3 Favorite
?4 Allocation of the two keys (beside Navi keys) in the main menue
?5 Profiles are "neglected" (as with distribution) - still there however new bell tones, etc. are...
?6 SMS/MMS/E Mail attitudes
?7 Logos and spielstaende (allegedly) also deleted...
Programs, calendars and contacts, etc. not changed...
Also the sicherheitscode remains.
This putting back goes also via menu under "attitudes - general - original telephone once.".

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

*# 7370 # Soft format: If the Handy (only telephone memory) formats, puts back the attitudes (see * to # 7780 #) and implements a software RESET. (however still another inquiry comes before.)
NOTE! If the Akku to 75% are loaded at least, Akku do not only accomplish during the procedure under any circumstances remove! The procedure takes some minutes (approx. 3-4), is absolutely waiting!
This is "only" a soft format... Hard format with "green, 3, *"... see below.

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

Green, * , 3 Hard format: If the Handy (only telephone memory) formats, puts back the attitudes (see * to # 7780 #) and implements a RESET.
NOTE! If the Akku to 75% are loaded at least, Akku do not only accomplish during the procedure under any circumstances remove! The procedure takes some minutes (approx. 3-4), is absolutely waiting!

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.
"only" virtual the memory is generally cleared - genuine formatting can take place only in a Nokia service center, if the Fash is deleted there and/or new L.G. is installed.

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


Mixed * # 92702689 #, then switch - system menu off

The following code do not fold (with me also):
* EFR0 # (* 3370 #) EFR activate (EFR = Enhanced Full rate Coding - language optimization)
# EFR0 # (# 3370 #) EFR switch off
* HRC # (* 4720 #) HRC switch on (HRC = helped rate Coding - language compression)
# HRC0 # (# 4720 #) HRC switch off

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

SIM LOCK Simlock status query: (use "*" the key over "p,w" and "+" indications to enter)
# pw+ 1234567890 +1 # Provider LOCK status
# pw+ 1234567890 +2 # network LOCK status
# pw+ 1234567890 +3 # Country LOCK status
# pw+ 1234567890 +4 # Sim Card LOCK status
The code 1234567890 must be computed with a program e.g. SmartDCT4Calc and/or DCT 4 code Calculator from IMEI, etc....
Info. to Simlock: SIM LOCK makes it for the offerer/network carriers possible, subsidized (verguenstigte) Handys to offer. Thus one makes oneself if necessary punishable if one SIM LOCK deactivated - in addition the warranty can purged. I take over for it no adhesion or responsibility!

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

GSM code ... should function at each Handy - however Netz(betreiber)abhaengig are... and "harmless"...
Generally applies: First enter code, "send" afterwards (< send green key > press) and one moment wait...

Mark more simply To Tipps & cheat to the topic "mark" e.g. with SMS entrance.
Over simply to mark simply the "pin" (ABC key) hold some e.g. SMS and move then Jostick downward.



Call number transmission * 31 # - { CLIR - Calling LINE identification Restriction switches on for the general call number transmission }
# 31 # - switch off the general call number transmission
# 31 # [ telephone number ] - with the next call suppress the own call number (thus temporary)
* 31 # [ telephone number ] - with the next call transfer own call number (thus temporary)
* # 31 # - status query (of call number transmission)
# 31 * [ telephone number ] - own call number show, although receiving station switched call number suppression on. (is not usually de-energised of the Netz(betreiber).)

* 30 # - switch { TIE-clip - Calling LINE identification presentation for the announcement on of the call number of the caller }
# 30 # - switch off
* # 30 # - status query

This also partly goes with ur phone via Men: Attitudes - calls - own No. send...

The following codes are not supported by most Netz(betreibern):
* # 76 # - announcement of the call number, under which one reached the calling (not its call number during rufumleitung!) { COLP - COonnected LINE identification presentation }
* 76 # - switch on
# 76 # - switch off

* # 77 # - announcement of the call number, under which the caller reached me (not my call number during rufumleitung meinerseits!) { COLR - COnnected LINE identification Restriction }
* 77 # - switch on
# 76 # - switch off
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




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

Some Tips

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

Call bypasses (call Forwarding) Bypass code (U):
U=21 always
U=61 retards
U=62 not attainable
U=67 occupies

U=61, 62, 67 can be parallel active

U=21 - > and then no more call signaling overwrites U=61,62 and 67!
Service code (D):
Not all nets support all services
D=10 language and fax (all calls)
D=11 only language
D=12 all data (speed/minutes)
D=13 only fax
D=14 DATEX j (active?)
D=15 teletex (active?)
D=16 only SMS
D=18 all data except SMS
D=19 all services except SMS
D=20 all services
D=21 all asynchronous services
D=22 all synchronous services
D=23 3.1 kHz GSM of language services
D=24 all synchronous POINT ton of POINT DATA inclusive. PADs
D=25 only data (all asynchronous POINT ton of POINT DATA inclusive. PADs)
D=26 DATA pack exchange on the left of inclusive. PADs
D=27 services thru PADs
D=29 12 Kbps digitally left


** U * [ goal call number ] * D # - bypass switch on
Input without * D means bypass of all services

Call bypasses (call Forwarding)
01.01.04 Bypass code (U):
U=21 always
U=61 retards
U=62 not attainable
U=67 occupies




** U * [ goal call number ] * D # - bypass switch on
Input without * D means bypass of all services

## U ** D # - switch bypass off (individual bypasses and service code)
Without ** D all services are switched off to bypasses
## 002 # (all bypasses for all service codes switch off)
## 004 # (switch off only U=61, 62, 67 and for all service codes - thus ", not attainable, nonacceptance "occupies)

* # U ** D # - status of the bypasses query:
Input without ** D queries all services and bypasses

Bypass in the speaking and/or fax box: Number in bypass procedure with D=11 and/or 13 enter
Goal call number (e.g. D2-Netz: +49,172 xxx) and Handynummer without preselection (if necessary 172 replaces) enter.

Tap: During switched on rufumleitung "with occupied" being able "to reject" calls by one the red key during "to ring" presses. The caller is then passed on to the goal call number of the occupying bypass (e.g. mailbox).
Type for waiting period during rufumleitung 61: ** 61 * [ goal call number ] * 11 * [ time in sec. (5 to 30) ] #

This also partly goes with ur phone via menu: Attitudes - rufumleitungen -...



Knock/stops/parks/faults Knocks is signaling a secondary call during a current discussion
* 43 # - switch on
# 43 # - switch off
* # 43 # - status query

This also partly goes with ur phone via menu: Attitudes - calls - knocking...

0 < sends > - reject while the discussion a knocking
1 < send > - discussion terminate, knocking discussion accept
certain discussion (y) terminate 1 (y) < send >
2 < sends > - discussion park, knocking discussion accept
certain discussion and new discussion leads 2 parks (y) < sends >

0 < sends > - caller the busy condition signal

This also partly goes with ur phone via menus existing during the discussion.



Call barrier Possible only if bypass of the service code is switched off.
Check code (S):
S=33 all outgoing transmissions
S=331 outgoing abroad
S=332 outgoing abroad except home
S=35 all arriving transmissions
S=351 all arriving abroad

Special check codes (s) delete:
Switch off only in connection with the procedure
S=330 check code status outgoing & arriving transmissions switch off
S=333 check code status outgoing transmissions switch off
S=353 check code status arriving transmissions switch off
Service code (D):
Not all nets support all services
D=10 language and fax (all calls)
D=11 only language
D=12 all data (speed/minutes)
D=13 only fax
D=14 DATEX j (active?)
D=15 teletex (active?)
D=16 only SMS
D=18 all data except SMS
D=19 all services except SMS
D=20 all services
D=21 all asynchronous services
D=22 all synchronous services
D=23 3.1 kHz GSM of language services
D=24 all synchronous POINT ton of POINT DATA inclusive. PADs
D=25 only data (all asynchronous POINT ton of POINT DATA inclusive. PADs)
D=26 data packet exchange links incl. PADs
D=27 services thru PADs
D=29 12 Kbps digital link



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-curt the left 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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Clock Stopping

To check weather your SIM Card supports clock stopping type-

*#746025625# (*#SIM0CLOCK#)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To enter the service menu type-

*#92702689# (*#WAR0ANTY#)

Serial number (IMEI)

Production date (MM/YY)

Purchase date (MM/YY) You can only enter the date once.

Date of last repair (0000=No repair)

Transfer user data to another Nokia phone via Infra-Red

*#06# To look for the IMEI of the phone
*#0000# shows the software version.

*#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.

You don't need the warranty-codes any more - you can just scroll through the information like in any other menu. It has the the same data as 81xx and 31xx phones (with "Edit" button for purchase date, and "User data transfer").

Menu:
1: Displays Serial Number.
2: Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture (0997)
3: Displays (if there) the date where the phone was purchased (MMYY) you can here set the Purchasing Date (Warning: You can only do this once - so be careful what you write...)
4: Displays the date of the last repairment - if found (0000)
6: The option is for transferring ALL the telephone data (from the memory) to a "box" so that the technician can fiddle with the phone without worrying about the data stored on it. Stuff stored on the SIM is not transferred, but who delivers their phone with the SIM?

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#

#3370# - Enchanced full Rate Codec (EFR) deactivation
*4720# - Half Rate Codec activation. It will automatically restart.
#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%

Sim Clock Stopping

Nokia Speed Trap Detector

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

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

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

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.

Some Nokia Codes:

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

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)
# Deactivate
*# Check Status
? Call button

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

Once each command has been entered, if it is a network command (as opposed to a local handset command) it must be transmitted to the network by pressing the YES (receiver) key which acts as an enter key - this is represented here with the ? character. Always enter numbers in full international format +CountryAreaNumber (e.g. +447712345678).

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

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.

How To Do it
1.) look at the name the first MMC is named and then take it out
2.) put in the new MMC
3.) format and name the new MMC the same as the other one
4.) Take back out the New MMC
5.) put the old MMC into a MMC Reader that is connected to your PC
6.) Coppy all of the MMC *make sure you have "show hidden files" enabled on your PC. see aditional info for this setting at the bottom of this message*
7.) Make a new folder on your Desktop and Past all files into that folder.
8.) Take out the Old MMC and Insert the new MMC into the Reader
9.) Open the new folder on your Desktop
10.) Highlight all of these files and folders, right click on one of the files or folders, select "Coppy"
11.) "Past" files and folders to the New MMC
12.) put the New MMC back into the cellphone, power up, and your done.


How To View Hidden Files in MS Windows
To view hidden files in Microsoft Windows perform the below steps.

1.) Open explorer
2.) Click the "Tools" drop down menu.
3.) Click either "Folder Options" or "Options".
4.) Click the "View" tab.
5.) Within the view tab select the option "Show hidden files and folders".



Why would you want to do this?
1.) No need to reinstall everything after switching your MMC for a Larger MMC.
2.) Back your current MMC to the PC just to be safe.. never know if your card will crap out on you and give errors or just not work.
3.) This is the ONLY way to do it.

Question & Ans:

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

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: 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 FAT as files system, not FAT32! Or reformat the MMC with your phone, this way all standard folders will be created too.

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#

Deleting leftover Game/App Icons

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

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.

Series 60 FAQ: E-Mail Issues

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

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.

[Howto] to free more RAM on your S60 phone

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

[Howto] to free more RAM on your S60 phone

There are two ways to get more free (usable) RAM:

>>> 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.

Using one of the above methods will let you run big games 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

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

[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

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

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

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

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).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------





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

If 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.)

Repairing A Corruptted MMC

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

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 Moby Memory 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.

Can't Uninstall Applications via Manager?

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

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 X-plore.

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.

Bluetooth Connection:

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

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 Phone: 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:

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

Connect Mac OS X to your phone:

1. On your Nokia Phone: 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 Phone: 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.

Upgrade a Phone

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

To upgrade a phone you have to go to a Nokia service point. Normaly you get your phone back the same day. You also can do it by yourself, it called flashing. This is illegal to do, but i just going to tell you when you need to know about this. To flash a phone, you need a flash cable (not DKU) a flash box and the software and the firmware files.

The firmware code list:
Every phone got his firmware code, you can find it when pressing *#0000# third line
for ex. the Nokia 6230 is RH-12. the meaning of those code is explaned underneeth. This is a older list, I'm searching for the new one, but cannot find it.

Prefix:
N: Mobile Phones
R: Computing Devices
T: Terminals

Suffix:
B: GSM 900/1900
C: DAMPS 800
D: CDMA/AMPS 800
E: GSM 900/1800
F: NMT-450
K: GSM 1800
L: GSM 900/1800/1900
M: GSM 900/1800
P: CDMA 800
W: AMPS/TDMA 800/1900
X: ETACS/TACS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------





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

Change Startup Tone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
use X-plore and go to Z drive.

goto
z:\system\sounds\digital\startup.mid

and rename it to startup1.mid

now u can put any *.mid file here as u like as ur startup sound and rename ur file as startup.mid.

but remember dont choose big file.

Skulls.B

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

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
c:\system\apps\caribe\flo.mdl
c:\system\recogs\flo.mdl
c:\system\symbiansecuredata\caribesecuritymanager\ caribe.app
c:\system\symbiansecuredata\caribesecuritymanager\ caribe.rsc
c:\system\symbiansecuredata\caribesecuritymanager\ camtimer.sis

Qdial.A

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

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 X-plore 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
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




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

Problem With Software Icon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Most of icon problems come's in java application. Do this

Use X-plore open it

Go to C: or E: Drive(where u install that application)(C: means phone memory and E: means MMC memory)

Hope u install ur application in E:
now open E:\system\apps\

in 'Apps' folder u will find many folders with name. But some r without name. They look like this [1018c533]. with any number or code in it. Open every folder which look like this one and search for ur installed software.

when u find ur application folder which u r unable to delete from manager. Delete that folder.

This will remove that application icon from ur Phone Menu.

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

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

>>> 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 :

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

>>> 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.
