Nokia N900 :: Need Dummies Guide For Flashing?

Feb 26, 2010

I have just this morning got my nokia n900, second hand from ebay. before i put any files on there i want to restore it completely, but this flashing thing is really confusing me. I've done a search of the boards but it baffles me, so if anyone could answer these questions it'd be really helpful:

1) how do i completely wipe it as though it were brand new? (not 'restore original settings' in settings menu, i mean the equivelant of a hard reset)

2) how do i determine what firmware i'm on?

3) what is 'flashing'? is it necessary? if i connect my phone to pc suite/NSU to check for updates, will it work as it does on S60 eg nokia 5800, or do i need another method?

4) i gather the latest firmware isn't yet available for the UK. how do i go about installing it given the n900 doesn't require a changed product code like other models?

Nokia :: N900 GPS - Possible To Enter A Destination Address And Have Phone Voice Guide Walking?

Feb 17, 2010

Could someone tell me exactly what is the current status of GPS on the N900? As I understand you can see where you are but there is no voice guidance. Is it possible to enter a destination address and have the phone guide you walking? Out of interest will the N900 ever be able to support video conferencing or is there a hardware problem? Thanks, Ian.

I've aquired a N900 with the never ending flashing dots boot problem. I've tried reflashing it a couple of times from my windows 7 laptop but no luck.

Nokia :: No Arabic User Guide

May 31, 2010

Bought a Nokia N97 Mini Gold Edition yesterday. There is no user guide in Arabic in the box. Come on seriously guys. You are selling a product in the middle east and the least you can do is provide an arabic guide along with it. Called up Nokia care, they ask you to call Axiom, call Axiom and they ask you to call Nokia. Gave up the hope. Tried to get a user guide from the Nokia support website. Go to and select Arabic and the page comes back with an HTTP 404 Not Found.

Imagine buying a phone worth 2500 AED and you don't have a user guide to go with that. Imagine calling up Axiom and Nokia care line just to hear that there is no guide provided in Arabic with the phone. Imagine you feel like an idiot buying something that does not make you happy. Now imagine if that someone were to be you.

Nokia :: VoIP Guide With Screenshots For S60 5.0 In N97

Jan 8, 2010

It seems that there are a few out there struggling to make the Nokia N97 (and other S60 5.0 devices) work with VoIP (SIP), so if you're one of those folks scratching your heads wondering how it's done, then take a look at this guide with screenshots:

I used my Gizmo account details as an example for the settings, but of course you can substitute any SIP VoIP service provider's settings there instead. I understand that the guide won't fix everyone's problems, but any feedback to this discussion thread is welcome and with that we could improve the guide.

In other new S60 3.2.3 devices such as the E52 or E75, you will find the settings to be slightly different, but the basic setup procedure is similar. For those having even older devices like S60 3.1 (e.g. Nokia E71), there's a slightly older guide here:

Nokia :: E72 Which Models Include Michelin Guide In Ovi Map

Jan 25, 2010

It mentions in the new Ovi Maps 3.03 that it has new features compared to the previous version 3.01. Which includes Events, Weather, Lonely Planet guide and Michelin guide.

I've installed the new Ovi Maps 3.03 on my Nokia E72, and I got the Events, Weather and Lonely Planet guide.
However, there's no Michelin Guide on my Ovi Maps 3.03.

I also notice that the PDF documentation has 2 versions, one for the non-touch GPS phones (eg. E52/E55/E72) and another for touch GPS phones (eg. 5800 XM, N97 mini).I am guessing that the Michelin Guide is only present on the Touch version phones (5800 XM and N97 Mini). Could any users who have installed the new Ovi Maps 3.03 confirm if this is correct? Kindly indicate your phone model and whether you have Michelin Guide included with the new Ovi Maps...

IPhone 3G :: Guide To Factory Unlocked IP?

Apr 22, 2010

It's been a while since I've logged into the forums. Since I've only been lurking for advice for ages, I figure it's time I actually gave something back. Below, a few notes on my journey into factory unlocked iPhone land.So about a year ago, I bought a 'new' iPhone 2G off eBay to replace one I had stolen a couple months earlier. Unlike my original 2G, this one got knocked around quite a bit, including several drops on concrete and tile. The screen was, mercifully, okay, but the home button was hard to press, the vibrate function was off-and-on, and the phone was getting bogged down by OS 3.1 besides. Once I heard about OS 4, and how I wouldn't be able to get it on my old phone, I decided it was time for a new one. WHY UNLOCK? So why even bother unlocking? Well, for one, I've been buying and software-unlocking my phones because I loathe AT&T's coverage, and am enjoying a T-Mobile plan at about 30% off the equivalent AT&T price. Considering 3G is spotty wherever I am, and I have wi-fi in most places I hang out anyway, I'm willing to live with EDGE.

The jailbreak feature is really handy, too, because I'm a stats nut who loves scrobbling to There is (and for the foreseeable future, will be) no background scrobbler to send my recent tracks to without a Cydia app. But I digress…

I finally got fed up with the cat-and-mouse game, constantly worrying about bricking my phone, and enduring the performance issues I have been since 3.1+unlock. Note the difference: a software unlocked phone means you can buy a (cheaper) locked phone, but you have to wait for the most excellent iPhone Dev Team to deliver a version of Pwnage before you can upgrade. Plus, I noticed a lot of performance issues with my older iPhone. A factory unlocked phone was never locked by a carrier, and really does mean any SIM, any time, anywhere--NO QUESTIONS. But where to get one?

This is the tricky part. You basically have three choices to get a "legally" (factory) unlocked phone:Buy one for $850+ on a reputable site like, TigerDirect, or a host of US and UK sites.
Give a friend going to one of a number of unlocked-iPhone countries a bunch of money to buy an unlocked phone for you.
Buy one for $600+ on eBay.I opted for option 1. How do US/UK companies get these phones, when there are no unlocked carriers in either country? Essentially, they're surplus phones being bought up by wholesalers and then sold to big computer parts companies like TigerDirect. My phone actually carries a Hong Kong part number, but there were no other markings (print, instructions, etc.) for me to tell the difference.** EDIT: Jersey in the UK's Channel Islands also sell the phones unlocked. Probably a spendy trip for US customers, though. phones are definitely expensive: $700 for an 8GB iPhone 3G all the way to as much as $1300 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. I got mine for a little over $800 thanks to a error (which they and Tiger Direct honored, much to my surprise!).Option 2 is cool, if you have a trustworthy friend.Option 3 can be dangerous. A lot of sellers will try to blur the line between software unlocked phones (using the very awesome iPhone Dev Team's unlocking software) and factory unlocked phones (which were never locked in the first place). BE AWARE OF WHAT YOU'RE BUYING. Ask for the part number. Google it, and if it's legit, you should see multiple search results online linking the part # of the iPhone you want to buy with a country with unlocked iPhones. If not, don't fall for the scam. It might be a software unlocked phone, which is definitely not worth the $600+ you'll be paying. Or it could be an iKnockoff, which is just a jerk move all around. UNLOCKING hen I was doing research, I read some conflicting info on this one. But rest assured: IF YOUR PHONE IS LEGIT FACTORY UNLOCKED, YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT ANY EXTRA PRECAUTIONS. PERIOD. Just insert a SIM card, plug it into iTunes, and it'll register and activate the phone just as if you had a normal AT&T account (or whatever your national iPhone carrier is). That's it. It doesn't matter what country you're in when you unlock, nor does it matter which country's iTunes Store you're registered with, nor does it matter what country your part # is associated with. Just plug in your phone and go. If you're having problems, it might be a phone issue, or you might not actually have a clean, factory unlocked phone. HOWEVER, if you jailbreak after that, it's just as if you'd jailbroken a normal, clean iPhone, and all the normal precautions apply.

So that's my primer on factory unlocked iPhones. We iPhone users are now conditioned to fear any unlock, but the factory unlocked phones appear to be a lot less scary than they're made out to be. The biggest concern you should have is that you're getting a legit phone from a legit seller—if you're paying several car payments' worth to buy a phone, be careful! Any questions? PS--I'm getting ready to sell the old 2G. I'd like to leave it unlocked, but still wipe all my data off of it. Anyone know the best way to do that? PM me with answers.

IPhone :: 3G Take - Apart - Guide Repair By RapidRepair

Mar 7, 2010

So i've had an iPhone since they came out way back in 07. I've always had the black one since you had an option of colors. Recently i began to wish my iPhone was white. What are my options? Buy a new one right? I use my iPhone on tmobile, so no upgrades for me, I would have to buy one outright. I plan on getting a new one when/if a new one comes out this summer. I did some googling and found you can buy just the back housing of the iPhone. So i bought it, and set it up.
You need 3 things...

White iPhone housing - White Back Cover Housing for Iphone 3G 8GB 16GB + Tray - eBay (item 320482593012 end time Apr-02-10 04:41:11 PDT)
White sim tray - White Back Cover Housing for Iphone 3G 8GB 16GB + Tray - eBay (item 320482593012 end time Apr-02-10 04:41:11 PDT)
White silent switch - New White Silent Mute Button Switch Key for iPhone 3G - eBay (item 370219826849 end time Mar-20-10 23:00:35 PDT)

I also bought an incipio feather case in white. I've never had a case on my iPhone bc i don't like how thick they make it feel(This is also why it looks like complete crap). We sell these at work, but not in this color, or at 5.99, LOL - NEW INCIPIO IPHONE 3G 3GS FEATHER CASE PROTECTOR WHITE - eBay (item 270526792030 end time Mar-02-10 05:50:15 PST)

BB Bold 9700 :: Guide To Adding Chinese Input / Read

Mar 8, 2010

I was always the frustrated one, seeing leaked OS, but if I want to play with it, I had to sacrifice Chinese reading/writing ability. Well a bit of research got me into finally figuring out how to actually insert Chinese/Other Languages capability into any OS (especially leaked ones!). Mind you this is only for BB 9700. It's actually easier than I think =) Anyway, there are two ways to doing it. Installing it as a separate add-on (Simillar to BB Maps / Password Keeper type RIM app), or installing it with the OS. 100% sure the OS method works, .alx via app loader through DM seems to be a little buggy, still testing.

Not responsible if I break your BB!
