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

Sounds like a bad firmware more than anything.
This can also happen when you use a bad theme file. Try changing the them you currently use to something default (with default wallpaper). This is the easiest thing to do.

I can't get a blank "theme" on my menu screen.


yuppe, u can't just delete themes unless you do hard format,which i don't suggest on this case, the best way is, just find another default nokia themes, and use it!

u can download directly from ur phone through GPRS or find some websites that provide theme for ur phone. or just find where the first time u got this 'island' theme? find it again, and search for nokia default theme which u mightstill have or probably u somehow deleted it..

hope this fixya..
