Question about Nokia N73 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Young Phone, Old Problems (Standby Application Problem, Lifeblog Cannot Be Accessed)

My N73 is 6 months old yet no longer working well.

Whenever I turn on my phone, a tiny square of the same color as my theme's wallpaper appears at the upper left of the startup screen (the Nokia logo with hands) together with the bar containing my menu labels (Messaging and Camera); then, as expected, the "Standby" application loads. However, it does not finish loading. It stops after all the shortcuts to standby applications have been loaded and the phone boots to the menu. No matter how I try exiting to the standby, it keeps returning to the menu screen. When I press the menu key for a long time in order to view the running applications, only the Music Player is shown while the "Standby" application, which is supposed to run all the time, is gone. Only when I eject the memory card and put it back does it work properly again.

Another problem I have with my N73 is that I cannot access my phone's built-in Lifeblog software, no matter what I do. I have reformatted my phone memory, taken out the memory card with the phone memory clear, and so much more. None of these has made the program work; it still continues to say "Cannot access Lifeblog database." In short, I cannot access it at all.

My suspect is that some of the tiny inner parts of my phone must've been when it fell from a height, about 3 feet above a marble floor to be exact. However, if that is so, then which of these parts have been affected? I don't want to take it to a repair shop either seeing as having a phone repaired here costs so much and yet technicians only rob you of your money and fool you, often by taking good parts out of your phone and replacing them with old, brandless ones. I don't want to buy a new phone either. First of all, I have no money. Last and most importantly, I love this phone and I don't want to depart from it. I want to get it fixed, no matter what it takes in order for all these faulty programs to work.

I anticipate your assistance with gratitude and mirth. :)

Bro, it could still be a software problem. Remove the memory card, and have it scanned for viruses. Connect it to a computer and scan for viruses, delete all of them. Then run the disk defragmenter and scan disk on it. When done, disconnect your phone from the computer. After that, remove the memory card from the phone. Turn the phone off. Hold the following keys WHILE it's turning back on: (* + 3 + green key). Don't let go until it asks you about your location. Don't put the mem card back in till you know it's fixed. Let me know how it goes.

MAKE YOUR S60 DEVICE FASTER AND RECOVER RAM


In the next few posts i will post some tricks to make your phone faster and also recover precious RAM.

1. MOVE HELP FILES TO MEMORY CARD
If you are running low on phone memory and have a lot of apps installed, you can recover a part of it by transferring help files to the memory card.
Enable CAPS OFF
open Xplore or fxplorer and move C/resource/help to E/resource/help.
All the apps will find it automatically in the E drive.
This trick will increase your phone memory thereby making your phone a little bit faster.

2. DISABLE LIFEBLOG PERMANENTLY
first use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserver process
make sure x-plorer is set to show hidden files
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
now delete the lifeblog.dbfile
reboot phone
now use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserverprocess once again!
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6 tick hidden and read-only reboot phone. You'll notice the phone's boot up is faster and it will also release some RAM.
if you want to use lifeblog again go toc/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6
and untick hidden and read-only


3. STOP AUTO STARTUP OF APPS ( for a faster boot up)
You can disable the third party applications to boot at start . These applications boot at startup and slow down the phone,s startup. In order to stop them to boot them use the following process.
The info of all the start up apps is stored in c:\private\100059c9\start.dat
whenever you allow any application to start automatically at startup the file start.dat is updated. The simplest method to disable the apps to load at boot up is to simply rename the start.dat file i renamed it to start.dat.txt. After renaming it your phone will boot as it boots after a fresh formating.
When ever you again want to enable the startup apps just remove the .txt extension.
You can also edit start.dat file to enable some applications to boot at start up and disabiling others but i don,t know how to edit .dat file. But you can edit it if you know how to edit it.
The easiest method of editing the .dat file is to delete the old start.dat file and then go to the applications which you want to boot at start up and rechange their setting ie (enable auto start=yes). A new .dat file will be created automatically which will only boot those apps which you want.
You can even further boost up your phone start up by renaming files like
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_NSmlDSSettings.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_nsmlagentlog.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FB_NSmlDMsettings.db
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE_NSml_Adapterlog.d b
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE\NSml_adapterlog?? ?.dat
C:\private\101F99FD\nsmladapterlog???.dat
C:\private\101f9a06\nsmldmtree.db
C:\private\100056cf\clockapp.dat
C:\private\100059a8\nitz.dat
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F9A02_nsmldmfotaadapter .db
C:\private\100012A5\101f8683_ScShortcutEngine.db
C:\private\1000850\logo*.*
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_10205030_accpolicydb.db
C:\private\1000c959\localdata\commondata.D???
C:\private\1000c959\localdata\localdata.D???
To .txt files or simply delete them.
Deleting all these files is the other name of restoring your phone to factory setting without losing any application data. Deleting these files also deletes sim data mean the network data of all the sims used in a phone. When you will rename all these files your all phone setting will be lost like clock time ,month date year. When you will again set different settings like adjust the ,adjust the date duplicate files of all the files you renamed or deleted will be created mean fresh data files .to again gainyour original setting as they were before applying the hack just delete all the duplicate files and rename all the above files as they were before renaming and restart your phone all your setting will be restored.

Nokia N81 Phone memory problems.


To start, please note 34KB isn't much space at all. That phone has a minimum of 12 megabytes and a maximum of 8 gigabtyes depending on when you got your phone.

But just for size comparison, 34 kilobytes = 0.033203125 megabytes so you have plenty of space, those kilobytes mean nothing.

I don't personally own a Nokia phone, but from what I hear, all of their phones have software on them called Lifeblog, it stores all of your photos taken, and all of the calls you have made on your phone and arranges them in a time line, this ends up taking up a lot of space and is a cause for many of the memory related problems.

Possible Solutions:
First:
Backup anything you want to keep with Nokia PC Suite
Then:
Reset your phone to factory default by either typing *#7370#
OR
Holding down 3 * green whilst switching it on.

Be wary when restoring any backup you have, being this will restore anything that your Lifeblog contains, reverting the problem.

And a final solution
Download "Y" browser here
Install it on your phone via your Nokia PC Suite.
Launch the YBrowser application (probably from new folder called DrJukka.com):
Locate the C: drive and open it:
Locate the Data folder:
Locate the Lifeblog folder:
Select Options, File and then Delete
Once the folder is deleted launch Lifeblog and select Update Timeline.


Hope one if not all of these helped =)

N73 phone memory problem


Hello friends....
u dun need to panic, here's a very simple solution!

The phone memory drops basically coz of LIFEBLOG DATABASE file. You need to have some Explorer Software to access this file. Either install X-plorer v1.22 or Y-explorer etc etc.
Then follow these steps:

1. Go to C:\Data\Lifeblog\Database
2. You will find a file lifeblog.db, it is because of this file whose size varies. Usually it stays around 1 mb but sometimes it goes upto 20mb + driving out whole of the Phone Memory.
3. Try deleting this file.
4. In case it gives a message that file cannot be deleted coz it is in use by some application, then go back to folder.
5. Rename the "DATABASE" folder to any other name. Now you will be able to delete "lifeblog.db" without any error msg. After deleting that, rename the folder back to DATABASE.

Here you go....ur problem is solved!

I wud like to have ur feedbacks!

Thanks
