I'm currently running v2.1 software on the n97 so the latest software.However, are there any extra features to download of beta labs.I don't think i'm running the latest ovi maps. Is it worth the update?Also, does anybody have any news of a new software update?
As title suggests, there are two new software releases from beta labs, a new release for Nokia bots URL...And a new app for Video collection management and access, looks interesting URL...I find most Beta labs releases quite useful and at least worth giving a try
How I can install the excel, word features for the blackberry? How to download and install excel, word and power point add-in? I am using a storm. I had been able to open office files before, not sure whats changed.
Just bought a Nokia 5030. It's new and there isn't much information about it on the internet. I have seen a socket situated between the headset connector and the charger connector. It looks like a tiny small USB or something alike. I'd like to connect to it and see what comes out, and if I can input anything (music etc. I know there's only 8MB but still). Where can I get the cable? I'm curious about electronic in general, and would be happy to dig into the device.
As the title suggests, Firefox 1.1beta is now available for download. There's a few new features, like zooming with the volume/zoom rocker switch. Screenshots and feature list here: Firefox 1.1 Shots & FL. Download link here: FF Download link.
After just paying alot of monies for this handset, I feel let down... 1. Most obvious and talked about is the OVi Maps update. Iv read this is on its way, I hope its soon! 2. No MMS 3. No SMS without conversations, I hate conversations. I hate that nokia are copying iphone... 4. No copying of old SMS to N900. I was a N86 8MP user before this handset arrived today. I have about 1 to 2 THOUSAND messages, from over the years and Im a texaholic, so I NEED to save them.... 5. No extra data connections, With O2 UK, I would normally have 3 connections: O2 MMS O2 WAP O2 GPRS But in addition to this, the new sim cards, automatically have a O2 postpay wap connection. So, I would like to have as many connections as I can!
6. No editing contact number description text. With, another let down, I have hundreds of contacts and about 10-30 of those have more than 2 or 3 numbers. For example, my workplace contact. I had like 10 to 11 numbers, plus other details, such as notes and emails all stored under 1 contact! For each number and note, I edited the text so I know exactly whos number it was, or what that text related to
I sure there's more, but atm since turning it on, charging, updating to latest firmware and first time boot with sim card, this is what I have found so far...
I would like to listen to BBC radio 5 Live Sports Extra on my N8/belle. Nokia Internet Radio app doesn't have this station and I can't find any other app which offers it. Is the Nokia DAB attachment/app my only option?
I am getting issues while using Nokia Drive + Beta, my position isn't moving when driving or taking 5 - 10 seconds to update then just freezes again.
it seems that i set destination, it finds me and my destination fine, i click start, it gives the first direction fine, i start driving and nothing, "my position" on the display doesn't move, the only way i can update it is "stop navigation" then "set destination" again where it picks up my new location.
i've ensured location services are on, location within the app is turned on, i've checked my connection is "online"...are there any other settings i should be aware of?
speed alert is off, landmarks is off, map colours automatic updated maps navigation licence is global
i am using it in a windscreen mount that grips the top and bottom of the phone with little "arms", i've tried in both landscape and portrait orientation. bluetooth is on and hoping to be playing music at the same time eventually.
i have been having the general "freeze out" issue recently with the phone where i lock it and then it doesn't come back on without a button reset, 2 times since friday
Just to let people know that there has been an update on Nokia Communities Beta, and it's fully functional now, all the things that were 'coming soon' have arrived, twitter has the same functionality as Facebook, all the buttons work and share location will work when posting on either site (which means people with N97 can uninstall the feature from the new maps and get about 3meg back) I'd heartily reccommend it to those who have a compatable phone and you can get it here signing in with your nokia account log in http://betalabs.nokia.com/apps/nokia-messaging-chat. It's much better than standard facebook app
I have a mini. I downloaded and installed the Maps Beta 3.04, seems to work allright. Today I started Maps updater and it told me to update to version 3.03. I aborted the update to check here for advice. Is there a newer version than the Beta or isnīt it compatible with the Maps updater?
"Am afraid i dont know about the N97 native client but you could try the new Symbian Beta (not officially supported for the N97 but some users are reporting they have installed it and it works) at least until the Native client gets released anyway."
Has anyone attempted this with an N97? What issues/success have you encountered? Hoping for some feedback to help me decide if I want to attempt this.
I find very useful be working on my PC connected, via Bluetooth + Nokia PC Suite, with the nokia 2690, thus annotations in calendar and contacts are automatically synchronized in both sides. My question : working in this way, can cause a noticeable extra consumption of battery ?. Let us say I am making 5 to 10 annotations by day.
How interesting. This is the release version of the Beta which loads of us have been using for months.These have been the supported phones up until now. Quote: Compatibility Ovi MapsBeta works with compatible Nokia devices: Nokia N97Nokia N97 miniNokia 5800 Navigation EditionNokia 5800 XpressMusic Now, ironically, the only one supported right now is the N97 Mini.I'm still running the Beta 3.03 on my N97, on FW 20.0.019. I wonder why the N97 and N97 mini have been running the exact same version until now, but the final version has not been made available for both at the same time. Obviously it doesn't need the new FW to work. Maybe it's just to save N97 users from 2 big updates in a week.By the way, I love the new interface, but it IS a shock, when moving from the old interface. Where is everything?Don't be discouraged, it's all there somewhere. It's just a different logic.
Just bought myself a N900 thinking it would be just the thing to replace my aging Sony Clie PEG-UX50 and my SE K750I. After much messing around I have managed to export my calendar from the Clie and also Thunderbird (Why no Thunderbird synch in PC Site??) only to find a number of really basic features arent available:-
1) Events cannot repeat on anything but a day of the month. If an event is on the 17th of every month that is fine. If however you want an event on the first Monday or the second Tuesday of every month then I cant see any way you can do it. Am I missing something?
2) Birthdays. There are some Birthdays I want to remember but I dont have contacts for the people they are for. Friends children for example. Why cant I enter a birthday directly in to the Calendar app? The Birthday Calendar is there and is local but the only way to put an entry in to it is to create a contact and add a birthday.
3) Reminders. Why cant I have a reminder at any time I want? Days, Weeks or Months earlier? I only seem to be able to set a reminder at some time during the day before the event.
These are all such basic features of a calendar application that I cannot see why they are not there. My Clie does them, Thunderbird does them. Outlook does them Am I missing something obvious? If not is there an improved version coming? Is there another app out there that will do what I need? (Please no Google Calendar I didnt buy this to use Google). The inability to handle repeat events and reminders are really a show stopper for me.
Questions: 1. How can I see al the phone and memory contenst through the PC Suite file manager when it seems all files are protected and hidden? 2. How can I move files from pc memory to mass memory so that I have more free memory on the phone? What files can be moved? 3. I am trying to install N-Gage but after installing the message reads to make a reboot: does this mean a switch off and switch on process or there is a reboot procedure? 4. Why N97 will not switch on if the sync cable is inserted in the phone? 5. Why I am not allowed to update to firmware 2.
I updated my Nokia firmware version to 60.0.003. I am located in India. I see that phone's browser has been updated to the latest version. As i have seen the change logs over internet I don't see "Swipe to Unlock" on my phone. It appeared only once.
Does anyone know where they is a good internet site explaining exactly how to use the 808's camera and all its features? Its probably me being stupid but i cant seem to get great photos from my 808, infact id say my N8 takes better photos if you havent got 10 minutes to set it up.I've tried leaving it in auto mode and also messing around in creative mode but im just not happy with the photos, most seem blurred or out of focus slightly no matter how hard i try to keep the phone still.I'd say i can hold a camera just as still as most people but unless its mounted in a tripod the results are poor, even my mates and family have had a go and it makes no difference, none of use can get sharp photos every time.
I have attached a couple of pics to show what i mean.And before anyone says did the cat move for pic 2, the answer is no. He is great for taking photos as he just sits there for ages looking at you and not moving at all..Picture 1 is me holding the camera above my head (so not very stable at all) to take a photo of my cat on top of the shed roof, the results are quite good considering.Picture 2 is taken resting the camera on top of a box (so very stable) but seems slightly out of focus and not as good as pic 1.
Nokia has me back as a loyal customer again after my debacle with the Nokia N97. I noticed three things that I thought are fairly critical, that are missing, all related to the phone part of the N900.
1) In my E61 and the N97, one could while in a call, choose a contact from the contact list and send number as DTMF, this feature is particularly useful when using calling cards, which I do 2) From the call log of both the E61 and N97 you could choose an entry and edit the number before calling, helpful sometimes when roaming and the incoming number comes with an odd prefix because of odd carrier routing of the call 3) In Contacts, is there no field for Middle Name?
I have tried a fair bit of searching on this and other sites, oddly couldn't find anything on these, any one have any thoughts?
