    My 5200 started misbehaving by restarting on its own. Later it started to go off at will and i'd have to keep checking to see if it's still on otherwise i'd have to switch it on again.Aftera while, it just refused to work for longer than a couple of minutes to hours, depending for how long i leave it to rest. Now, it doen't stay on at all...it comes on, all right; might even show the nokia start-up, but it goes off immediately.It might get to my wallpaper before going off but usually doesn't, except if i've left the phone off for a day or more...then it may even work for about 10 minutes.
    I have paid monehy to have it flashed many times, but it still gives the fault. And i finally know that it isnt a virus bcos 5200 comes with a firmware. However,i sent someone some files via bluetooth and his own nokia phone started behaving like mine immediately. Can my phone be infectious? Were the flash files not correct? How can i get the right ones?
    PLS HELP ME.

Any text message i send goes to the out box and is either resending (to no avail) or listed as failed. I got the phone 3 days ago. It is a work phone with telstra. Nokia C%


The problem might be with "Message Center Number" which is different for different service providers.

Scroll to Message centres, press "Open"
Scroll to SIM message centre, press "Open"

My friend sent me mms on my N70 I tried to removed the message but I can't do it. Maybe you could help me erase the messages. Thanks


Hello - I use a Nokia 70 so hopefully I can help.
Scroll the centre button down to messages - press once to open. Move down one more setting to UNREAD messages and press again.
This will open ALL messages in you inbox - TXT/SMS + email + MMS.
Find your MMS by scrolling up/down then click the C (cancel) button bottom left on your phone. This should then ask - Do You Want to Erase this message - click YES.
The second option after you have found the MMS in the inbox is to open it, then press option which is the 'select' key on the left part of the screen. Press this once and you will have a menu of choices like -- move to / save picture / forward message to / save message on phone card // AND DELETE.
One of these should work if the phone is in good working order on all the other features. - Ray

Battery saving Tips
==============

1. Always turn off wireless scanning, Blue-tooth when not in use
2. For those not using 3G, choose your network mode to “GSM” instead of “Dual mode” which will consume more battery. Settings -> Connectivity -> Network mode -> GSM
3. Less Display Light
a. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> light sensor (move the slider to the left)
b. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> Light Time-Out (lesser time to save battery but annoying if too short while you are playing games)
4. Always terminate the application properly that is not using by using Option ->Exit. It might be running background and consuming battery which you don’t know.




Memory Saving Tips
==============
1. Restart your phone if the memory less than 30MB, you could either soft reset (User a dialer and dial 5 * * then call) or hard reset by pressing the power button

2. Use Handy Taskman to close all application regularly or kill application that is not in use.






Camera & Picture tips
================
1. Some noise could be reduced if set the ISO sensitivity to low instead of auto.

2. When viewing pictures, you could use your stylus to view for previous (slide left) or next (slide right) picture like iphone feature.

Video
====
For converting video that is high quality to play at 5800, should use the mp4 format as below (All is 16:9 widescreen):
a) Xvid @ 678kbps resolution 480×272
b) Xvid @794kpbs resolution 640×352
c) H.264 @ 512kbps resolution 400×224
d) H.264 @ 550kbps resolution 400×224 (Recommended)




Music tips
=======
1. If you can’t find your songs after transferring from your pc to memory card, go to music player -> Option -> Refresh library

Application Tips
=============

1. Always install your phone theme on the memory cards. This is because if some theme does not work (Christmas tree) then you need to flash your phone.

2. Uninstall your application in proper way. Use Menu -> Setting -> Application mgr. -> Installed apps -> Choose application then option n uninstall

NOKIA E71 Tips and Tricks


bdb92c9.jpg

The E71 was one of the very best handsets to come out of Nokia factories in 2008 and the best ever in my book. So it is only right that we utilise its functionality to the absolute hilt and try and make the E71 even more efficient.

Here is a long list of must know tips and tricks for the E71. You might already know a few but if you are new to S60 and the E71 in particular, I’m sure this will make for a happy start to the E71 new year!

  • STICKY FUNCTION KEY – A quick double press on the bottom left ‘function’ key locks it. This is helpful in situations when you need to press a combination of keys or in applications like Gmail which can be controlled via the keypad.

  • 1-800-WHATEVER – To dial 1-800-WHATEVER: type 1800, hit Fn, then Shift twice, type WHATEVER, and press the Call/Green key to dial. (The idea is to type in the alphabet mode in CAPITAL letters ONLY). The alphabets will automatically be converted to numbers.

  • ONE TOUCH MUTE – You can simply mute a call by press the button between the volume keys present on the right hand side of the phone. Press it again to cancel the mute.
  • REMAP THE KEYS – There are times when you feel certain keys on the E71 are being wasted when they could have come in very handy. For example, the volume keys would work wonderfully with the web browser to scroll pages or in your music player and the mute key could work as select. Make that happen.
  • TIME & DATE – When the phone is in the locked state and the screen is blank, hit the Navi Button to display the time and date in a large font.

  • TEXT MESSAGES – When in the standby mode, hold down left soft key to read out new text messages.

  • ASSIGN SHORTCUTS - If you have a lot of applications installed on your E71, you might want to assign additional shortcuts to different applications by definying a set of keypresses with an application called Cute Keys.
As a follow up to the above tips, here are a few shortcuts that you should enjoy. I have highlighted some of the lesser known ones.

GENERAL


  • To get to a symbol or number hold down its key.
  • Shift + Backspace deletes letters after the cursor, thus immitating the behavior of the ‘Delete’ key on the computer.
  • In the Main Menu:

A B C D
E F G H
I J K L

To open A press 1, 2 for B, 3 for C, * for D, 4 for E, 5 for F and so on.
* Fn + Ctrl + C to copy.
* Fn + Ctrl + V to paste.
* Shift + Left ( or Right ) to select text.
* Ctrl + Up for page up.
* Ctrl + Down for page down.
* Ctrl + Vowels ( or n ) for accented characters like á or ñ.

CAMERA

  • T to focus.

GALLERY

* Green Call to send the image.
* Fn + * for full screen.
* Fn + 7 to zoom in. Press twice for the full screen size.
* Fn + 4 to scroll left while in the zoomed image.
* Fn + 5 to zoom in.
* Fn + 3 to rotate right.
* Fn + 2 to scroll up while in the zoomed image.
* Fn + 1 to rotate left.
* Fn + 0 to zoom out.

STANDBY


* Hold * to activate/deactivate Bluetooth.
* Hold 0 to go to the web browser.
* Left Soft Key then Fn ( or * ) locks the keypad.
* Hold End/Red to disconnect all data connections.
* Hold Left Soft Key to read out new text messages.

MAIL

* Shift + Return to mark/unmark a single message.
* Shift + Down to mark multiple items.
* Fn + Spacebar in new message body to access input (predictive text, etc.) options.

MAPS

* Shift to zoom in.
* Backspace to zoom out.
* Space to go to the current position.

REAL PLAYER

* Fn + 2 for full screen.
* Hold Up for fast forward.
* Hold Down for rewind.

WEB

* 1 for bookmarks.
* 2 to find something on a page.
* 3 to return to the previous page.
* 5 to tab open windows.
* * to zoom in.
* # to zoom out.
* 8 for page overview.
* 9 to go to a different web page.
* 0 to got to the homepage.
* Hit the Backspace key to close the current window.

Sir, My Nokia 5200 phone's down key right key does not work sometimes, exept them all keys are working properly, plz sir give me a valuable solution that I can easily overcome from the said problem.


Most models slide to open this common problem. The main thing I suggest you change the new ribbon cable. is not about just the keypad will not work if the ribbon cable is damaged, but lcd display is not functioning properly if the ribbon cable is damaged. You are lucky to still be able to use it even can not move left or right, if not berfunggsi menu button, you can only power on mobile but can not use it.
