MobiLe Handy Tips
- At the top of the main-menu and every folder, the keys 1 to 9 are shortcuts to the icons 1-9
- A shortcut on the left menukey in standby-mode will take more time to open than a shortcut on the right menukey.

Using Alarm When Phone Is off
Did you know that you can set
alarm on your phone even when
it is turned off? This is quite
useful feature for people who
usually turn their phones off
while sleeping. For you who
always turn your phones on,
this feature might not be
interesting. Actually it is not
only a feature of S60 phones;
some other non-S60 phones
from Nokia has this feature too.
How do we setup this feature?
There is nothing special. Simply
set alarm in the Clock
application as usual. Then switch
off your phone and go to bed.
Next morning, when the alarm is
ringing, you can stop it and the
phone will be switched on
automatically. Alternatively, you
can also select snooze if you
still want to sleep.

DeLeting Item With 'C' Key
How do you usually delete an
item in S60 applications, for
example, in Contacts or
Messaging applications? Many
people select Options >> Delete
to delete an item but you can
also press 'C' key to delete an
item. It's faster because you
only need one click instead of
several clicks.
Just remember to press 'C' key
when you want to delete
something in S60 applications.
Most S60 applications support
this feature, including Contacts,
Messaging, Notes, Calendar,
Gallery, File Manager and many

Clear Form Input Easily

default browser of any s60
phone.. (to save time pressing
'C' key each time to erase
letter by letter), simply open
your Wallet application and set
a dot like ''. '' as NOTES. Now
each time you face this
situation of clearing input fields
with lots of words in it, just
press options, open wallet, then
fill in the Note with da dot.
Voila.. All clear...

Subfolders In Menu
Subfolders in Menu
If you have already tried it, you
know it's not possible to have a
folder inside another in phone's
menu, because there's no 'Move
to folder' option if you highlight
a folder.But with Alberto
Bilheteria and all his action, the
history is different...
1- Open your phone's menu and
highlight the folder you want to
put inside another folder
2- Press Options-Move and
press 1 to move the folder to
the first position in menu
3- Open some file explorer (if
you don't have one, download
from the link below), and go
to !:\system\apps\, where ! is
the drive you have some
application installed: C for the
phone or E for the card
4- Highlight a folder, and
rename it to anything else than
its original name.
5- Immediatelyperform this
sequence as fast as you can:
press Menu key, highlight any
application or game (not a
folder) and press Options
6- Don't do anything else, but
wait until Menu is
refreshed.After that, you'll see
the cursor appears over the
folder you want to move.
7- Select Move to folder,
choose the destination folder
and the folder will be where
you moved it.
-The application or game you
must highlight at step 5 should
be in the same folder than the
folder you want to move.
-Steps 3 and 4 explain a fast
and simple action that causes
Menu to be refreshed.If you like
it better, both steps can be
replaced with install a
application that's already
installed or remove some
application using phone's App
Manager.Anyway, remember the
step 5 has to be done
immediatelly after the previous
-Before trying this trick, make
sure that you have at least
one item that's not a folder in
your phone's menu.It may be a
game or a application.
-After renaming a application
folder located at !:\system\apps\, don't forget to rename it
back to it's default
name.Otherwise, it won't appear
at phone's menu and you can't
use it.

this code: *#7370# this will leave you with nothing on your phone except nokia software. I will advise you keep your phone on charge while doing this in case of not finishing its re-format.
A Soft-reset - the process of resetting all the settings of the phone to the factory default!
