Nokia 6131 - Memory card/camera

Hi. I got a 1 gig memory card for my nokia 6131, and after I had about 130 pictures stored on it, the camera stopped being able to take a picture. Once I had dumped about two thirds of the snaps on the card, the cam started working fine again. But, surely the card should hold a lot more - the total of pics was only 40MB or so, and the card has another 900 + MB's to go - being a 1 gig card - right?. Could it be cos it needs 'formatting' to tell the card how much space to 'allocate' to different media etc ?. I am v new to this stuff - it's just that I saw an option on one of the menu's saying 'format card' or something. Apart from the cam not working , it would not rename any pictures or move them to another file etc, which it now will do ok , having deleted a bunch of pics. Thanks, Best regards - Ian.

Hw to recover deleted msg frm nokia E 65 phone


sorry but once any text messages, voice mail ext that has been deleted from any phone is no longer attainable, because the messages are not stored anywhere else on the service provider network. So once it is gone from the phone it is gone. sorry again.

Bluetooth


Back up first files on your memory card on your computer. then format the memory card on the pc. Then put back the formatted memory card and format it again on the phone. Take out your memory card then put it back again on your pc to copy your previous files. This should work.

Memory cards need also formatting same as HDD's

Hope this helps...

Nokia 6131 security code


Default code for Nokias is 12345. This will work if you did not change access code.
If you set up your own access code, you can recover the code by connecting to computer or using a file manager. You can download Fileman here.
After installing file manager
check the folder C:Systemmmcstore . Rename file mmcstore.txt and send it to another mobile or to your PC via bluetooth or USB, open it and there you will find the password.

Here is also a reset procedure that works on some Nokia, I do not know if it is good for 6300.
Beware, by using reset below you will delete all data stored in phone memory, even phone numbers if they are stored in phone memory:
Take the SIM card out.
Make sure your phone battery is fully charged.
Press * 3 send at the same time and turn the phone on.
Keep this two buttons pressed until the reset screen appears.

Wait some time to reset.
Switch phone back on.

How to unlock sd memory card in nokia 6131


I have read so many questions how to unlock password-protected memory card. This happens very frequently to some of us (including me). Usually for security reasons, we protect our memory cards with password. It can be done from Memory Card application by selecting Options | Set password menu

For S60 1st and 2nd Phones
What should we do if we forget the password? For S60 1st and some of 2nd phones, such as Nokia 3650, Nokia 6600 and Nokia N-Gage, the password is stored in a plain text file.
  • Firstly, you need to install FExplorer, a free file manager that allows us to browser through S60 file system.
  • Next, launch FExplorer and then browser to c:\system folder. There is a file, called mmcstore.
  • Rename the file to mmcstore.txt and then open it. Your password must be several characters at the end of the file.
For S60 3rd Phones, Nokia N-Series and Nokia E-Series
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover the password in the latest S60 phones. The only way that I know so far is by reformatting the memory card. It can be done from Memory Card application by selecting Options | Format memory card menu. Of course, you will lose all your data in the memory card… icon_sad.gif
If any of you have experience unlocking password of memory card in latest S60 phones, feel free to share it here.
Compatible devices: S60 1st, 2nd, 3rd Edition, Nokia Nseries, Nokia Eseries

Camera not working - nokia 6131


Hi - Nokia 6131 cam . My cam stopped working when there was too many pics being stored. mine store on a 1 gig card ( reccomended ) and it is possible to periodically put them on my PC - you need a way to store them first before deleting - unless you dont mind just dumping some now and again. But it cured the prob. My cam now works ok. I think the card was not holding that many pics as it should because it was not 'formatted' , well . . . . we will see if it makes a difference. Regards Ian.
