Hi Ashish

I am having a similar problem with my phone currently, it is a firmware issue that can be solved by doing a factory reset on the phone, however i am not doing it for now, because a new Firmware from Nokia has come for 5800 which is v40.0.005 and it is not yet out for the Indian phones so i am waiting to upgrade to this version.

Meanwhile to access the call log you can try this option, change the home screen theme to contacts bar from settings and then when you press the phonebook shortcut key or dialler shortcut key it would work

After you press the dialler shortcut key and you see the dialler on the phone screen press the green button it would show the call log.

Nokia 3120 Classi Supportive File Noting to Display


Pada program jika dipilih muncul tulisan "Supportive file. Nothing to display."
Untuk nokia 3120 classic, bisa dicoba alternative ini:
-> Pastikan progam yang hendak dipakai sudah diklik "options" atau bisa diatur dulu "application access"! (Supaya program dapat muncul)
-> a. Pilih "menu-settings-display-active standby-active standby mode (on)
lalu pada posisi standby pada shortcut bar pilih "options-select shortcuts-application list-silahkan pilih programya (ditandai)
pilihannya:
done-done-(save change? Dan pilih "yes"
Lalu pada posisi standbay pada shortcut bar, dipilih program2 yang sudah dipilih

b. Cara yang ke 2 bisa memanfaatkan tombol shortcuts:
"Menu-settings-display-my shortcuts-left selection key atau right selection key atau navigation key-application list-pilih programnya
Pada posisi standby, silahkan dipilih pilihan tombol shorcut yang sudah diatur

*Semoga bermanfaat

4. If you are on the Numeric Keypad, pressing the [#] key alternately will toggle the General and Silent Profiles, same as before, which means long press on zero [0] will bring out bookmarks for the Web.

6. Tapping the Active Icon on the Top Left (near the battery indicator) will give you shortcuts for any of the active icons.

8. Long press on the center button is similar to the Long press on the "Menu" key (the yin-yang key on most S60) which will bring out the menu for all the active applications.

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

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.

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.

How to reflash nokia e55


Hi.

Flashing the phone takes special software, a serial USB lead and can be very difficult to do seeing as the phone is a smartphone.

However you have 3 options.

NOTE: In front of the hash key ( #) there is also a STAR key that people often miss and state that the code does not work.
1.. *#7780# - Restore factory settings - resets all the settings to the default ( you will not lose any data) Make sure you back up your data as you will lose all of it when you perform option 2 or 3 on this list. The default code for ALL operations listed here is 12345.

2.*#7370# - Reformat your phone (out of the box, tho keep in mind that most newer nokia phones at least n series, e series and s60 based phones have udp - user data preservation so not ALL data may be lost. still it is a good idea to always do a back up of your stuff.)3. This you perform as a last resort. Nothing else is working.If the phone is not showing any activity, proceed with hard formatting , turn off your phone, hold the following buttons while pressing the power button. (the default code is 12345)



3. hard reset - hold the following buttons * (star key), 3 (number button) and talk/green key. turn on the phone and do not release those buttons until you see the Nokia boot up screen. once you feel the phone power up you can let go off the power button while still holding all three buttons ( for Nokia 5800XM - use the following buttons to do a hard reset, /GREEN/RED/CAMERA keys pressed all at once on power up. this will only work on 5800's that have firmware version 20... and up. ) For Nokia N97 (unofficial version but works) is SHIFT /SPACE BAR / BACKSPACE while holding the power button. Again do not let go until you see the handshake screen.
If these codes are not working the only thing for you to do is contact your Nokia Care Center/Service for assistance.



Regards.
