Quick Tips for Nokia Symbian series(S60)

To be in short : S60 software on Symbian OS is the world’s most popular software for smartphones. Symbian is a small OS sitting in your mobile and thats the reason why it takes time to boot and start off.......Some of S60 mobiles are : N7610, N3650, N7650, N3600 etc...I have a nokia 7610(one of my mobiles ;)) lookwise very elegant n stylish, the camera is fairly reasonable for a 1MP click. More details of 7610 will follow in the near future. Now its for the tips:

Tip 1: Do u know how to use the edit button (abc or pencil button)?Heres how... in the inbox for example; u want to delete multiple sms, simply hold the edit button, scroll down, and then, press c to delete the marked sms. The edit button can also b used to copy and past text in sms, simply hold it and scroll across, choose copy. pretty good for placing song names in ngages

Tip 2: Save on battery and system memory being used by regulary checking the task manager which can be accessed by holding down the menu button!! Close the applications that are not in use.

Tip 3: Set the screen saver to a short time out period to prolong battery life.

Tip 4: Avoid restarting the phone, or repeatedly turning it on and off. This helps increase battery life.

Tip5: While you are viewing a picture in your phone's gallery, press one of these shortcut keys (definitely works on 6600, not sure about other symbians)
1 - turn image anticlockwise
3 - turn image clockwise
* - toggle on/off of full screen
5 - zoom in
0 - zoom out

Tip 6: Only got blue, green and purple in your 3650 colour palette? This free app adds 3 more colours: Palette Extender.

Tip 7: You can speed up the phone by setting the time of the "Recent calls register" to one day (30 days by default).

Tip 8: Delete all messages from your Inbox at once:Menu > Messaging > Inbox > Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark all > Options > Delete

Tip 9: Record the sound of a phone call using the (sound) Recorder. Menu > Extra's > Recorder > Options > Record sound clip.Note: short beeps are audible during call registration.But there is a 60 second limitation so if you want unlimited sound recording get this app: Extended Recorder.

Tip 10: If you would like to avoid being "blue jacked", keep bluetooth turned off, or set your phone's visibility to hidden.
