Nokia :: 5800 - How To Change Default Web Connection Setting
Jan 4, 2010
Whenever I try to use OVI, BBC iPlayer etc. it tries to connect to internet via my post-paid SIM connection even when WiFi connection available.How can I make WiFi connection as default web setting instead of connecting using my SIM?Interestingly, when I open Opera, it presents a list of available connections I can easily select one.
I've recently bought a Nokia 5800 xm and have been able to connect it to my home internet using the wlan wifi.
I can only use the wifi if i go to settings>connectivity>wlan. If i go straight to internet, it tries to connect to t-mobile internet. This also happens when trying to use applications such as bbc iplayer and the ovi store.
Is there a way of setting the wifi connection as the default connection? If not, is there a way of setting up my applications so they connect using wifi?
In Connectivity/Destinations, I have "Internet" as my default connection method, this is denoted by a tiny little tick at the side of it.But every now and then, it will fail to connect, and when going into Connectivity/Destinations, the little tick has gone.This is my 3rd 5800 and the 3rd one to do this any ideas why ?
I have 2 email accounts but I predominantly use my Yahoo one. However, if I open my Yahoo emails on the Blackberry and select 'Compose email' it will automatically send my email from my 'Default email' which is my other email address. I can of course change the 'send from...' setting but I often forget which is annoying when the email has already gone. I have tried all ways to change the 'Default email' setting but I can't find out a way of doing this.
When my calendar reminder pops up it gives me the option to end the reminder or snooze for a preiod of 5 mins. This is far too short so I went to Calendar, Options, General Options and under Actions set the Default Reminder to 15 min and saved the change.When a reminder pops up the snooze time is still 5 minutes despite the change I made. Very annoying!What can be done to set the reminder time to anything other than 5 mins ? Have I changed the wrong field, or is this a bug?
Every time I select my phone as the Music source in the BMW Nav, the phone chooses the last used music source. So, if I've rebooted the phone and haven't used any media players on phone, it opens the Samsung built in music player and plays the demo song that came with the S6.
If I last opened Spotify, the next time I select my phone Spotify auto plays. Same with Pandora.
Any way to select a default and work around this "last used" setting?
I am a brand new X6 user, I am not event very familiar with Symbian S60 OS. I recently purchased the application known as ThreadedSMS because I like to see my text messages threaded as in conversation form. After I installed it, the original messaging application still pops up notifications in addition to ThreadedSMS. Also when I click on a contact and wish to send a text message, it uses the original messaging application instead of Threaded SMS.Is there a way to set the OS's default messaging application to be Threaded SMS so that I don't get double the notifications of incoming text messages, and so when I try to send a text message via contacts it doesnt pull up the original SMS application.Also, does anyone know a more finger friendly Contact Manager application (similar to iPhone )?
i set the default browser as following way: Settings > Application Settings > Default Applications > Browsing Internetin the settings, it is showing default browser as opera,but again while opening web-pages, it still uses Nokia web-browser.it never uses opera.i have also tried using this after switching off and on my Nokia N8.
How can I put an alarm for Mondays and Thursdays and another for Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays? When I input one new alarm it changes the days of the other at the weekly work days already chosen. It makes it impossible for me to put two different work weeks.
Hi everyone, I'd like to set up auto lock for my keys for my Nokia 6680 but seem to have forgotten or never set up my password before. Can someone please tell me the default password when setting up the Autolock period for the Nokia 6680?
How can I find those default ringing tone in my phone and delete them? for example, at profiles> personalise> ringing tone there's a list of my sound track some are stored in memory card and some default (Chipper.aac, Diplex.aac..Etc) stored in phone memory. There is another mp4 file (freeheart.mp4) which I cannot find anywhere else except in the profile personalisation. Cannot be found in the file manager too.
I have set up an account on email.nokia.com using my gmail email address, but I get a message 'Invalid e-mail address' when using this address to setup messaging on my phone (5800). I'm using v10.2 of the messaging software and on VirginMobile in Australia (though I've been trying to connect via wifi).
I just bought a 5800 Express Music and am very new to the world of mobile phones. I have had a Yahoo Mail account for the last ten years and would like to be able to access it throught the phone's email system.
This is what I've done: In Settings Wizard, click Email Setup.
-Phone says "Allow application to use network to send or receive data?" -I say "yes". -Phone says "Testing network", then "Contacting email server". -Phone gives me a screen with Yahoo, Gmail, Ovi etc. -I click on Yahoo, then write my Yahoo email address. -Phone says "Getting email settings", then "Unable to connect with the information provided. Please try again".
I just bought a 5800 and updated to latest firmware.
Everything works fine except the camera. When I active the camera I can see that the application is started (seeing the indication in the menu) BUT I can't see the application. Thus I cannot take pictures.
Another question I have. Is there a setting in the emailsetup to prevent emails being deleted from the server when I deleted them on the phne?
I have a problem setting my call barring on the 5310. According to 5310 manual, the default access code for call barring is 12345. The problem is the input field only has 4 spaces for numbers so it fails to activate because I can only enter 1234. BTW, I haven't set any of my own security codes yet. From searching the web I have found people have have this issue with this phone and the access codes. They were given various codes to try, but the matter was not resolved. None of them work. Could someone please tell me what the default access code is for the 5310?
I am having some problems connecting my 5800 with my computer via USB. I have the Ovi suite and Nokia PC suite installed on my computer. The computer is running windows 7.
I can establish a connection over Bluetooth, but when try to connect over the USB the phone just wont be found. Windows 7 installed the drivers for the phone, the USB connection says that the phone is in PC suite mode and I can access the phones memory though windows explorer. The only way Ovi or PC suite will recognise my phone is if I put it into mass storage mode, but when I do this they connect and then 5 seconds or so later the phone sets itself back to PC suite mode and the connection is lost.
The phone is less than a week old, all the software I am using is up to date and the cable is an official Nokia cable.Any help is greatly appreciated.
My recently performed a hard reset on my phone after trying to get the new Ovi maps loaded onto my phone. After successfully getting everything to work I noticed that my internet connection to Orange always switches on, even after going to connection manager and disabling it. I have tried everything I know but am unable to stop the phone doing this. It really drains the battery. Any help to understand why this is happening and a solution to stop it would be greatly appreciated.
I need help with the messaging -> email. I tried to set up personal email on my Nokia N97. I tried using Yahoo but it doesn't work. Then I tried using hotmail and it worked fine (but my hotmail is full of spam so I want to get my Yahoomail to work). It said that I have the username or password wrong. Could someone tell me what to type in?
1. Messaging->Option->Setting->E-mail->Mailboxes->Option->New Mail Box->Start-> 2. Email->Use my email address-> 3. Email Address: <yahooid>@yahoo.com 4. Password: <Password> 5. Then it said this "Email setting defined. Setting can be viewed and edited in POP3/IMAP4 application. Mail forwarding may need to be activated from your email account for mailbox setting to work". (Does that means anything? is there something I need to do with my email?) 5.OK 6.Option->Connect-> 7.Mailbox user name -> (is this the ID or the whole thing +@yahoo.com?) 8. Then the same passwords
I tried using both with @yahoo.com and without @yahoo.com it still says connection refused by server, check username and password (I am sure everything is right, because I tried to log onto my yahoo server).
is there a way to change the default web browser? Skyfire seems to be working a whole lot better for me so would love to have it as my default i know it still beta version but i've able to access a whole lot more with it.
Does anybody know how to change the default browser on the X6? I recently installed Opera Mobile, which is much more reliable than the Nokia browser. Therefore I'd like to know if there is a way to change the default browser to Opera.
I just bought a Nokia 5800 XM. However, there seems to be a problem with WLAN connectivity. The phone can successfully search for available networks, and when I choose "Connect" the WLAN icon appears at the top right corner (as if it successfully connected). But, when I try to use the web browser, it pops up connectivity options (as if it is not connected to any WLAN network even though the antenna icon is there). I can choose the same WLAN from the options, but then it says "connection already active" and fails. When I open connection manager it doesn't list any active connections. A strange situation! I've upgraded its software to the latest version but that didn't solve the problem. Any ideas why this may be happening and how to solve it?
up until 2 days ago i could use wifi on my nokia 5800. My phone no longer appears to be able to connect to wlan. When I go to settings, connectivity the wlan settings option is no longer there. I dont understand what has happened to make this option disapear. I am using software version 30.0.011.
My 5800s USB connection seems to be totally dead. I get no beep on the phone when I plug in the USB cable (tried on 3 different PCs) and I get no prompt asking what mode I want to use, i.e. PC Suite Mode, Mass Storage etc.The phone does not appear under "Devices and Printers" in Windows 7, nor does it appear under "Device Manager".So there is zero connectivity between the phone and the computer.
I've ordered a new micro USB cable from ebay to see if it helps, but the one I am using now doesn't look damaged in any way.
I wonder if it's possible to share the existing internet connection on Nokia 5800 XM with the PC without internet connection?The setup is like this:
1. I have DSL Wi-Fi router in home
2. I have one computer which connects to DSL router using the USB Wi-Fi card - that's my primary internet computer
3. I use Nokia 5800 for wi-fi connection to router too
4. I have another PC which is audio DAW (digial audio workstation) and I don't want to dirt that one with any antivirus, antimalware software or any plug-ins required for using the internet.
Now, since there is a certain need to connect to internet with that DAW (mostly to utilize the web camera and make video calls without disturbing the rest of the family, since DAW is in the studio, a separate room), I wonder is it possible to use my Nokia 5800 in a way where I would just share it's internet connection with the DAW, so DAW would connect to internet with Nokia's connection? It isn't the same thing as using the smartphone as modem, it's an actual connection sharing, but I fail to find needed settings for such sharing on Nokia.I also wonder will the PC be at any risk at all since it would use internet connection of Symbian based system (the PC runs with WinXPSP2).
I have been trying to reach an email setup on my N97 mini that I am happy with and so far have struggled and given up on the hopeless nokia email client, and am now having problems with setting destinations for automatic email retrieval. I have my internet destination set to prioritize to different wlans and then WAP. This is my default connection.
I have a gmail and a pop3 email account, set up for automatic retrieval, however they don't pull in any mail if the access point in use is set to default connection. If its set to WLAN, it works, if its set to contract WAP, it works, and if its set to default connection it works for manual connection but not automatic retrieval.
What makes it worse is I am sure it was set up and working last week? Any thoughts please? I am getting so frustrated with the error prone nature of email on this phone I am thinking of going back to my trusted N95 8GB.
