Nokia Tips And Tricks

Post by Donutz on Sun Oct 30, 2011 10:19 am

Most Popular and Useful Nokia Codes

How its done: Go to standby mode (the state where your wallpaper, clock, and operator logo are displayed at the same time - press the red button on your keypad), then press the secret code. Example: if you press

*(asterisk) #(number sign) 0(zero) 6(six) #(number sign)
it will show you your phone's IMEI/serial number.


The CODES:

*#06# - displays the unique serial number or IMEI number

*#0000# - shows the firmware or software version details

*#2820# - Bluetooth (BT) device address

press and hold the ZERO (0) button - brings you to the homepage of your wap/gprs

press and hold the MENU button - launch the phone's task manager. you can then switch between active programs or terminate a running application by press the CANCEL/DELETE (c) button.

*#7780# - restores user defined settings to factory default settings. programs, calendars, and contacts are unchanged. you will be ask to input your security or lock code to proceed with the restoration.

*#7370# - reprograms your phone memory to factory default. all files will be deleted. you will be ask to input your security or lock code to proceed with the phone memory format. backup your messages, contacts, and other important data before proceeding. NOTE: this is equivalent to hard format for Nokia Series 60 1st edition phones (N7650, N3650/60, N-Gage/QD). If you are using Nokia Series 60 2nd and 3rd edition phone (N6600 and above), this code will not fully format your phone memory, you need to do the hard format (3-keys combo code) instead.

turn ON your phone while holding together the green (call) button, *, 3 - reprograms your phone memory to factory default. all files will be deleted. you will be ask to input your security or lock code to proceed with the phone memory format. backup your messages, contacts, and other important data before proceeding. NOTE: applicable only to Nokia Series 60 2nd edition and above phones (N6600 and up).

*#7370925538# - reprograms your phone's wallet application. all information on your wallet will be erased and the wallet code will be removed.

Tips And Tricks For Symbian Phone

Tip 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 : 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.
for 6600 users, to format the fone, theres an alternative way. Press and
hold <3>, <*> and Call (Send) buttons, then power on fone,
keep holding on the 3 buttons, till u come to a format screen. this
method ONLY works on 6600, and need not enter the sec code. BUT sec code
would 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.

Tip 4: 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 5: Type *#06# to display your IMEI serial number, very valuable for the unlocking your phone to other sim cards
Tip 6: Type *#0000# to view which firmware version you are running
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.
Tip 8: Don't want to carry a watch and a phone? Set the screen saver to show date and time, then you can ditch the watch.
Tip 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.
Tip 10: Operator logos
Use 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 on
Delivery reports
or
Type *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
First 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 anticlockwise
3 - turn image clockwise
* - toggle on/off of full screen
5 - zoom in
0 - zoom out
#15 u can select all files in 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 time!
#16: A soft and Hard reset
#17: Formats of images
supported ones: JPG UPF GIF87a/89a WBMB MBM TIFF/F PNG EXIF
How to copy & paste text in your Nokia 3650:
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).
To change background image go to:
Menu > Tools > Settings > Phone > Standby mode > Background image > Yes > "choose an image".
The best size for background images is 174x132 pixels.
Only got blue, green and purple in your 3650 colour palette?
This free app adds 3 more colours: Palette Extender.
Display an image when someone's calling:
Menu > Contacts > "select a contact card" > Options > Edit > Options > Add thumbnail > "choose an image".
Add a personal ringing tone to a contact:
Menu > Contacts > "select a contact card" > Options > Open
> Options > Ringing tone > "choose a ringing tone".
Delete all messages from your Inbox at once:
Menu > Messaging > Inbox > Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark all > Options > Delete.
Send or hide your caller ID: Go to: Menu > Tools > Settings > Call > Send My
Caller ID > 'Yes', 'No' or 'Set By Network' to follow the default settings of your home network.
If you often copy large files to your MultiMedia Card, I recommend a card reader.
E.g. With a card reader it takes only 12 seconds to copy a 10 MB file!
Record the sound of a phone call using the (sound) Recorder.
Menu > Extra's > Recorder > Options > Record sound clip.
Note: short beeps are audible during call registration.
But there is a 60 second limitation so if you want unlimited sound recording get this app: Extended Recorder.
While writing text, press "#" to switch between upper and lower case and Dictonary on/off (predictive text input).
Press and hold "#" to switch between Alpha mode and Number mode.
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 and hold the right soft key to activate voice dialling.
To add a voice tag to a phone number, open a contact card and scroll to the phone number and select:
Options > Add voice tag.
You can customize both soft keys located below the screen (in standby mode):
Menu > Tools > Settings > Phone > Standby mode > Left/Right selection key > "select an application".
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.
123
456
789
In standby mode,
45# + dials the number on your sim in memory slot 45.
50# + dials slot 50 and so on.
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.
Never, ever, in your whole life, install WildSkinz on your Nokia 3650!!! WildSkinz screws up
the 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:

A "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.

·

How to check your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity)?

Type *#06# on main Phone screen.



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.)

To reset your wallet, should you forget your code,
Type in:
*#7370925538#
this will reset the wallet code, the wallet contents will be deleted.

First thing first, not all the Symbian phones can be formatted by the so called “Formatting codes” (Will not work in Series40 phones like Nokia 6300, 7210, 5130 etc and the older Nokia Generic OS based phones like Nokia 1600, 2600 etc). These phones can only be formatted through flashing (Re-installing) their OS software (Firmware) via data cable and computer. Only Symbian S60 (And a few of other series) based mobiles have built-in support for the format codes. So format codes will work in all Symbian^1 (S60 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th edition) phones like Nokia 3650, 3660, 6600, 6630, 6680, 6681, 3230, 7610, 6670, 3250, N70, N72, N73, N75, N76, N77, N78, N79, N80, N81, N82, N83, N85, N86, N90, N91, N92, N93, N95, N96, N97, 5800 and other touchscreen phones plus the newer Symbian^3 phones (Nokia N8, C7 and E7 etc). Now lets begin with formatting process:
There are two methods to format the phone depending upon the situation:
A. When the phone is in working condition:
Just press any of the following two codes at standby screen
*#7780# or
*#7370#
Phone will ask for confirmation and security code (Default security code is 12345), enter it and bingo everything in phone memory will be erased and phone will be back to factory settings.

B. Hard Reset – When the phone is not starting-up (i.e. not working after white screen or Nokia Logo screen) – then follow these steps:
1. Switch-off the phone
2. Press and hold following three keys simultaneously (Remember “All the three keys” simultaneously):
Green Key (OK or Number Dialing key), Star key (*) and Three key (3 number key)
3. While still holding the above three keys, press the power on/off key to switch-on the phone.
Still continue holding the three keys until the “formatting” screen appears. Now you can release the keys, confirm if asked and then wait for the format to complete. Now the phone will be restored to its original factory settings.
