Google maps dont have a smaller version of mobile phones.
and hence it will freeze every time you try to open it.

also make sure if the gprs is activated in your mobile phone

How to download fexplorer in .jar format

FileExplorer v3.0 alpha

[img src="" border="0" alt="">

FileExplorer is a program for managing files on the phone and memory card.

Current features include hiding/unhiding of folders and files, password protected access to the program and copying and moving files.

It also features a slideshow viewer and image viewer. Will NOT open other files except jpg and png. This is NOT the final version. Its a pre-release build.

IMPORTANT Settings before running FileExplorer:

After FileExplorer has been installed you'll need to configure the Access Permissions to allow FileExplorer to access the phone local file system and the internet. How this is done depends on your phone. Please read the below section for instructions for your phone type.

Configuring Access Permissions for FileExplorer

Sony Ericsson phones:

Go to either Applications or Games (depending on where you installed FileExplorer). Highlight FileExplorer, but instead of opening it, press More->Permissions.

Select Read User Data and set the access permissions to "Ask once" or "Ask Always". Select Write User Data and set the access permissions to "Ask once" or "Ask Always".

Nokia Series 60 phones:

Go to Tools > Manager > FileExplorer > Options > Suite settings

Select Read User Data and set the access permissions to "Session" or "Ask Always".
Select Write User Data and set the access permissions to "Session" or "Ask Always".

Nokia Series 40 phones:

Go to FileExplorer->Options->Application access->Phone access

Select Read User Data and set the access permissions to "Session" or "Ask Always".
Select Write User Data and set the access permissions to "Session" or "Ask Always".

Torch Keys:

Left Softkey(Nokia): Change color
Right Softkey(Nokia): Go back
UP/DOWN arrow: Increase/decrease brightness
LEFT/RIGHT arrow: Cycle through preset colours
8 key: Toggle Circle light or Full screen light
0 key: Reset all settings

What's new in this release:

· Shows hidden files and folders with separate icons than the normal ones.
· Improved the support for Sony Ericsson phones. Should work but haven't tested though. Do send feedback
· Added support for zip files and nokia themes but it's under work and will not work.
· Changed the UI a bit adding a shortcut to jump directly to a path
· Added a torch with different colors. The flashlight doesn't work yet.
· Added Nokia Theme creator UI. Still under development.
· Support for zipping files and upzipping them. Working on them. To get torch which remains ON permanently press the UP arrow which changes the brightness level.

Hi, would someone reccommed how to get a map to the Nokia Music Express 5310 phone? And where to get the map from? I can abandon the navigatiom feature. I just want the EU map in the phone. Many thanks....

Good day. Nokia 5310 is not capable of navigating any virtual map. But you can try to download some application which maybe you can find a substitute solution to your problem. Try to go to and download application map if available for S40 version, because that is the software platform of 5310. All for FREE download. Thanks

call the customer service of Mobily and ask them to send the Internet access settings through SMS.

They'll send the setup settings and you have to just save it.

After that you can use browser to connect to internet

Pop email settings with godaddy domain

I FINALLY GOT THE ANSWER! I ALSO HAVE A GODADDY EMAIL ADDRESS AND USE A HTC TOUCH PHONE FROM SPRINT. I've entered the following settings and my email now works like a charm! This is for a POP3 email address, not an IMAP email address.

You cannot send the email unless you have a sprint email address. Email must go through the Sprint server in order to be sent (incoming mail does not).

Call Sprint Tier II (877.345.7895) and ask them to set you up with a User Name and Password for the outgoing mail server. All the rest of the settings are as follows:

EMAIL SET UP Email Address: Your Password: the password you use to access your go daddy account Check SAVE PASSWORD Click NEXT UNCLICK TRY TO GET EMAIL SETTINGS AUTOMATICALLY FROM THE INTERNET. Click NEXT. Your Email Provider: Internet Email Click Next Your Name: Dales Wife Account Display Name: 'GoDaddy Email" or whatever you'd like to call it so you can identify this account (you can have several email accounts sent to your phone). Click NEXT Incoming Mail Server: Account Type: POP3 Click NEXT User Name: Again enter Password: Enter your password again Check SAVE PASSWORD Outgoing (SMTP) Mail Server: CHECK Outgoing server requires authentication UNCHECK Use the same user name and password for sending email Advanced Server Settings: DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Incoming e-mail DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Outgoing e-mail Click DONE to return to previous screen Click NEXT Outgoing Server Login: Password: When you call Sprint Tier II they will ask you what password you'd like. Check Save Password. Automatic Send/Receive: I use every 5 minutes and it doesn't seem to run my battery down. Click FINISH. This has been driving me crazy for two months now so I really hope this information helps somebody else out. Best of luck! NOW, if anyone knows how to remove those annoying envelopes when I access my mail - I could use the help. There are three envelopes there (one for GoDaddy mail, one for Outlook and one for Picture Mail.) I do not use Outlook or Picture Mail and would love it if I could remove those.
