Nokia :: N900 Shortcuts Disappear And Not Restorable
Jun 10, 2010
I stumbled upon a weird problem on my N900 lately. I have finished updating some applications, such as fMMS and the IM-conversation plugins, and afterwards, half of my widgets and shortcuts were gone. I was able to restore them, put I am unable to restore my "Calculator" shortcut. The program is normally listed in the menu, but it does not appear in the shortcut list when editing the desktop.
Odd thing I noticed last night with my n900, in that the shortcuts that I had on the desktop would no longer open the relevant app, so I could access Phone etc.When I deleted the shortcut and went to re-add it, the Phone (and Contacts, Conversation, Clock, Photos etc) all had 2 entries for shortcuts. One of which opens the app, and the other does nothing.I've now gone through and replaced each one with the one that works, but I have no idea what caused this. Has anyone else found this?If tnis post is a cure to your issue, please MARK IT AS SOLUTION.If this post has helped anyone in any way, PLEASE SHARE YOUR KUDOS, by clicking on the GREEN STAR.
This past weekend, I needed to copy some files from the phone's SD card to the PC. I connected via USB, and everything went fine, but when disconnecting from the PC, all shortcuts to apps on the home page, that were for apps that were moved to the SD card disappeared.
Most of us from Africa, Nigeria in particular prefer to use Liberty Reserve as our payment option becuase it very easy for us. How possible it is for you to add it to your payment option so that one can buy applications from nokia store.My c7 problems are too much; camera not working, most app disappear, gallery picture disappear and so on,
i realy your help in this one, now i live in Lebanon, and i'm searching for a n900, but the other day my freind told that you can't check for your balance in your phone operartor, is that true, were i live, you need to recharge your phone in before you make phone calls, send messages etc, and to see how much dollars(or what ever its called) you still have in what you have recharged, you need to press *11# and than the green button, and than a message shows up showing you your phone operator balance, is it true that that can't be done on the n900? i like it how i can overclock the n900 from 600 mhz to 1000 mhz in less than 30 sec.
When I tap my screen and choose adding shortcuts only my second page of shortcuts show, where the Facebook app. are. My first page do not show, where phone and contacts are. I had these before but now I can not figure out what to do to get the phone shortcut on my desktop.
the shortcut suddenly stopped working and I am not able to select Profile from Homescreen. When I tap at the top centre (where the Calendar and profile shortcut usually found), I am able to feel the touch vibrate. But I am not able to see any dropdown showing different profiles.
My phone has a bug, i try to set my home screen up so that the short cuts would show and my email notifications as well.. Instead i can set up my contact with the pictures, but not the installed shortcuts like music, web,etc... I am really fraustrated with this, as i have to keep going into applications to click on my email to retrieve my msgs and to play music as well..
I am in the messaging application, click to update mailbox and while it is trying to update the email application crashes and closes completely. I am returned to the home screen but now the shortcut I had for my email account inbox is gone, replaced by a shortcut to the music store. I had to manually fix this several times but then I discovered that just leaving it after a while the correct icon would reappear.
I've got a X6 since a month or so and I always left the start screen settings in place. Recently, the shortcuts on that screen have gone. Only the phone and menu buttons at the bottom are visible. I've tried setting the Theme to no avail.
I've also tried a hard reset (soft wouldn't do it), and that works fine. But when I restore my phone, the same problem persists. Even when I do not restore the phone settings, but only contact, messages, etc, the shortcuts on the start screen are gone again.It feels like there's some corrupt data in the backup. Anyone got another tip?
I have just updated my E72's software to version 031.023 and my shortcut applications have disappeared from the 'home screen' and when I go into settings - modes to try and fix nothing happens when I press 'Application Shortcuts' .I liked my E72 but it is really starting to annoy me for various reasons (especially OVI maps). I totally regret buying it. I feel a rant coming on!
I did a software update via Nokia Suite as it said it had some new themes. While this was installing my N8 ran out of memory and the installation failed. When I checked my N8 the homescreen widgets and shortcuts had disappeared.
I have tried to re- add them but they do not appear on any of the homescreens.
Has anyone experienced this problem before? When I try adding any shortcut to the home screen, it shows a "running circle" icon on the home screen. Looks like it's loading, but it's just like that forever. This happens to all available shortcuts and most of the widgets except for Clocks and Map Apps.My phone is updated to the latest Belle.
I love my nokia e71. In fact I prefer it to the iphone, blackberries, and android based phones that i've tried. But it became much more intuitive to use once I learned the various keyboard shortcuts that were available with it!! Reading through the entire manual and various help dialogues, I was still in the dark about many shortcuts available on the phone. Why does Nokia keep such essential features of their smartphonen as hidden features??
Just updated to Belle this morning & having a problem installing widgets/shortcuts to the home-screen. It worked at 1st but now it stalls & the little circle just keeps spinning forever & does not do anything.
I just got my E72. Replaced the memory card with a bigger one, then did an update...Now, I lost my shortcuts on the main screen.Bad news is that the old memory card is formatted, so I cant just reinstall by using that. I also tried a soft reset, which gave me the message: "Close all active connections" without any connections being active.
My 5530XM is acting up again (v.11 firmware). The symptoms are random disconnects from WLAN and, after doing a soft reset, unable to put shortcuts on the home screen (using the Shortcuts theme). I really think the problem is with the memory card because I can't turn the phone on with the card inside.
Is there a way to scan/repair problems with the memory card? I really, really want to avoid a hard reset. Last time I did that, I lost all my apps from the memory card (I have the Games Edition). I can try using PC Suite or Ovi Suite to back up my memory card apps, but I don't trust the suites that much. What I'd like to do is drag and drop my memory card apps to another location in my PC, but I cannot see the memory card apps in Windows Explorer.
The other day i got a nokia 5800 refurb in brighthouse for £30 and was just wondering if i can have the home screen like the X6 With the scrolling contacts bar at the top and the shortcuts along the bottom
I bought a Nokia 5230 in Jan this year. There was no issue for the first few days... Then suddenly it started restarting . Radomly. First when I enabled bluetooth. Then later on it would restart when I changed a setting like Home Screen Shortcuts or Personalised the General Profile ... etc. I am using a SanDisk MicroSD 4 GB card brand new clean formatted. I have only put in music from NokiaMusic and OVI store apps. It has nothing to do with software installed. There is some really wierd problem.
..So , I went to the Nokia Care store countless times, and they re-installed and updated the phone software and gave it to me.. still the same problem.. SO then they sent it to the Delhi Head Office and I got a replacement 5230 !!! And guess what still the same problem !!! Random restarts. I feel there is some issue with the phone software or firmware or there is some issue with the phone accessing its memory card , I dont know. I have the latest firmware update for this phone V12.0.089
