(Part 1)

Here's a nice compilation of what I call the Ultimate Symbain OS Phones FAQ! Please post in more FAQs in here and make it the best guide through SYMBIAN


If you lost/forgot your MMC card password, do the following:

Use any file manager application like for example Seleq or FileExplorer. Go to C:\system\ folder and locate a file called mmcStore. Send this file to your computer and once it is on your PC, change its extension to .txt. Now you can open the file in e.g. Windows Notepad - it contains your password.


How to reformat Nokia 6600?

Turn phone off, press and hold the green (talk) key on the left + number 3 on the keypad + the * key and then turn the phone back on.

Warning: formatting the internal drive results in ALL DATA being removed. Use this only when you experience serious problems with your device.


Quick access to applications

You can customize both function keys located below the screen. This can be done in Menu -> Tools -> Settings -> Phone -> Standby mode -> Left/right selection key. Selected applications will be assigned to function buttons in standby mode (on Phone screen).

Besides that there are also two other applications which can be quickly launched in standby mode:

press joystick to open Contacts base

press and hold "0" (zero) key to launch WAP browser.


How to clear SMS reports?

SMS reports are kept in Log. They expire and vanish automatically after the number of days set in Settings -> Log duration. If you want to remove all SMS reports, you will have to clear the entire log. This will also clear all incoming/outgoing/missed calls lists.


Can I copy & paste text in Nokia 7650/3650?


Simply press and hold ABC key and select your text using joystick. Left function key will change to "Copy". Press it to copy the selected text to clipboard.

You can paste the clipboard contents the same way: press and hold ABC. "Paste" will appear above the right function key.


Problems with sending email messages

Some people report that they can check incoming email without any problems while sending doesn't work for them.

In most cases this problem is caused by SMTP authentification required by their email server. Nokia 7650/3650 doesn't support SMTP authentification (logging-in with user name and password when sending email).

This can be solved in two ways:

either use other email service/account from the operator that doesn't require SMTP authentification

or configure your current account to use some free SMTP server without SMTP authentification. This can be done by changing the outgoing mail server in your account configuration. Try mail.vodafonemail.net, smtp.mail.yahoo.com or some other free email server.


Problems with sending files from 7650 to PC via BT

The following tip can be useful for people using Bluetooth hardware (cards, dongles) equipped with Widcomm software (MSI, TDK etc).

If you cannot send files from your Nokia to PC, you may want to try the following tip:

Open your Windows registry in Registry editor: Menu Start -> Run -> Regedit

locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\Servic es\0004 key

locate AcceptOther entry

change its value from 0 to 1

reboot your computer.


First name, Last name?

As you may have noticed, the First and Last name are displayed the "wrong" way round in the Contacts list. Basically there is no option to switch them back round, so you must do one of the following:

Download a little freebie program that switches the fields round: NameSwap or simply enter the first name in the last name field and vice versa. Not a prefect solution, but until Nokia release a software upgrade, I think we are stuck with it.


Can I use my own polyphonic ringtones?

One of the beauties of this phone is the fact it supports multiple audio extensions. One of these is the MIDI format. MIDI has been around for years and there are loads of sites on the Internet that have full pop and chart music in good quality MIDI format, which is, best of all, mostly free. So ignore these sites that want to charge you money for a ringtone. Probably the best MIDI site is http://www.mididb.com.

Send your MIDI file from PC to 7650/3650 via Bluetooth or infrared. If your PC doesn't support BT or IR, you can send it to the phone by email. Open the message on your Nokia - the attached MIDI file will be automatically opened in Recorder. Save it and go to Profiles, where you can set it as a default ringtone.


How to check firmware version?

"Firmware" is the phone's operating system stored in internal Flash memory of the device (disk Z. Manufacturers release new firmware versions containing bug fixes, improvements and - sometimes - offering new functions.

Firmware upgrade can only be made in authorized Nokia service centre.

To check your current firmware version simply type


on main Phone screen.


What is IMEI and how to check it?

IMEI is a serial number of your device. IMEI consists of 15 digits. It describes the manufacturer, phone model and is unique to every single device.

You will need your IMEI number when requesting technical support from the manufacturer and also when purchasing software as most registration keys are IMEI-based.

To check your IMEI number, type


on main phone screen.


How to install Java MIDP software (midlets)?

Java MIDP applications consist of two files: *.JAD file (containing description, version number, size, download URL etc.) and *.JAR file (actual archive).

If you already have the files on your PC, you can send them to your Nokia 7650/3650 the same way as for SIS files. You only need to send the *.JAR file. JAD is not required.

You can also download Java midlets using WAP browser. Simply select the download link - Installer will be launched automatically and your midlet will be available from within Applications folder. Check http://wap.midletcentral.com or http://midlet.org/wap/ for hundreds of freeware Java MIDP applications.


How to get rid of the Orange home screen?

To remove the Orange home screen:

Use any file manager, go to C:\System\Autostart folder and rename the homescreen.ast file to any other name e.g. homescreen.abc

Download and install Sony Ericsson Desktop application

Reboot the phone. SE Desktop will appear instead of Orange home screen when you open the flip.

If you don't want to use the SE Desktop and you prefer to have the standard Applications launcher like on unbranded phones, simply uninstall the SonyEricsson Desktop application and reboot your phone.

Another advantage is that now the first (left most) icon on the icon bar goes back to Messaging and can be freely changed to any shortcut of your choice.


P800: CDA version number disappeared after reformatting C: drive

Unlike in P900 where the CDA number is stored in ROM and cannot be modified or deleted, the P800 stores the CDA number as a text file on drive C: (C:\System\data\cda_version.txt). When you format your internal disk the file gets removed and is not created again.

As opposed to P900 where CDA plays important role in updating the phone via the online update service, CDA in P800 is not of any serious importance to the user. It is just another version number.

If you want to have it back, just use your Windows' Notepad to create a text file with the following content: CDA162001/4 R5A05 (or any other version you might have had). Call this file cda_version.txt and copy it back to C:\System\Data folder of your device.


Memory structure of P800/P900

Sony Ericsson P800 / P900 devices incorporate several different and separate memories.

1. ROM Drive Z:
The Z: drive is called ROM drive. It contains the operating system - the Symbian OS 7.0 / UIQ software. This memory is based on Flash chip and is read only. Users cannot modify its contents. This memory can only be erased and re-written during the firmware update process either by authorized service centres or via the Sony Ericsson Update Service.

2. ROM drive A:
A: drive is another read only ROM drive. This disk contains "customization" software, depending on your country and/or operator, like Web browser's home page and default bookmarks, default themes, standard ringtones, default color scheme, MMS templates, startup and shutdown animations, etc. These contents depend on your CDA version. You cannot modify this disk's contents.

3. User storage disk C:
Disk C: is like hard disk in your desktop computer. You can use it to store different kinds of files and install 3rd party applications. The system uses it to store its settings and databases (like Contacts database or Calendar database). You can freely modify its contents, but you should avoid modifying the System folder, which contains system data and settings required for the device to boot and work. The size of this disk in P800 is about 12 MB and about 16 MB in P900. Disk C: is based on Flash memory, which means that its contents are fully secure even if you remove the battery as Flash chips preserve their contents without any current supplied.

4. Storage memory card D:
Disk D: is the Memory stick Duo memory card. Basically, it serves as an expansion of the internal storage memory (disk C. You can use it to install third party applications and store different kinds of files and documents. Both P800 and P900 support MS Duo memory cards up to 128 MB.

5. Operating memory - RAM
This is a separate memory that acts exactly like RAM memory in your PC. You can't install any applications or data in it. This memory is used for execution of the operating system and applications. Both P800 and P900 contain 16 MB RAM of which about 6-8 MB is free for executing user applications and the rest is being used by the operating system itself. If you see "Not enough memory" message, it means that there are some applications running in the background (Symbian OS is a multitasking operating system capable of running many applications and processes simultaneously) and you have to close some of them to provide free memory for the application you are trying to launch. This can be done using so-called "task managers" showing list of tasks running in memory and letting you close them. Good examples of such applications are TaskMan, SMan, Switcher etc.

Users very often mix up different kinds of memories. For instance, many users try to remove data from C: drive when they see "No memory" message. This message applies to RAM memory and has nothing to do with free space on C: or D: disk.


How to use my PC\'s Internet connection via USB or BT?

It is very simple. All you have to do is:

for Bluetooth (assuming that you already paired your Px00 and your PC and configured the connection for being used without confirmation), simply enable appropriate Bluetooth serial ports (usually COM3 and COM4) on your PC using "Phone Connection Link" Preferences. With newer BT software you can simply select "Quick Connect -> Serial Port" and choose the Px00 from the devices list. As soon the Bluetooth icon on your P800/P900 shows that the communication has been established, you can launch any Internet program on your Px00 and start using the Internet connection of your PC.

for USB connection, simply put your phone on its craddle paying attention that no Internet connection on your phone is active. Your phone will use the Internet connection of your PC automatically.

Note: Not every program is able to use your PC's connection. While most 3rd party programs work that way without any problems, the built in WWW browser and the Messaging application work with GPRS/dial-up connection of your phone only. Use Opera and some third party email program (like EmailViewer) instead.


Speed-up your P900 by using an empty theme

You can make your P900's UI work faster and save some operating memory by using an "empty" theme, i.e. a theme that doesn't contain any skins. Such theme only consists of the main color scheme and it makes your P900 look almost exactly like a P800.

To prepare such an empty theme, do as follows:

open Windows' Notepad and type the following:

save the file as Theme.xml

compress the file using ZIP using any name

change the extension from .ZIP to .utz

upload the file to your P900 and select in using Themes in Control Panel.


How to reset the lanuguage back to English?

If you happened to select some language for the user interface that you don't understand and you cannot find the language selection preferences to switch it back to your language, you can quickly reset the UI to the default English language. Close the flip so that the main phone screen is displayed and enter the following code:

jog_dial_down 0 0 0 0 jog_dial_up (i.e. rotate the jog one step down, enter four zeroes, rotate the jog one time up). Them press 2 to confirm.

(part 2)

How to update firmware?

P800/P802 users can only update the firmware in a Sony Ericsson authorized service centre. Currently, there is no way to update the firmware yourself at home. Check sonyericsson.com Product support pages for a list of authorized service centres near you.

P900/P908 users can update the firmware at home using Sony Ericsson Update Service. Visit http://www.sonyericsson.com/updatese...0/frameset.htmand follow the steps described there.


What is and how to check the firmware version?

Firmware is a coloquial name of the system software of your device, containing the Symbian operating system as well as other software controlling the hardware parts of your P800/P900.

System software in P800 and P900 phones consists of three modules:

Organiser software: this is the actual Symbian operating system of your device. Everything you do and see on your phone is operated by this software. The Symbian OS version is always 7.0, but there are different updates of it and the actual version is presented in the following format: RXYZZ. R letter is always there. "X" stands for one digit, which is the major version number, e.g. 2. This number changes with serious updates made to the firmware. The "Y" stands for one letter, e.g. D. This letter indicates less serious changes. Finally, the "ZZ" stand for two digits, e.g. 02. These digits describe small, unsignificant improvements. So, the actual organiser firmware version looks like this: R2D02. If you have R2C01, then your version is slightly older, lacking only some small improvements when compared to R2D02, while if you have R1B05 then your firmware is very old, lacking many serious updates/corrections and should be updated as soon as possible.

Phone software: this software controls the telephony sub-system of your device, i.e. the GSM chipset, the transmitter, interaction with the GSM/GPRS network etc. It works on a hidden level, below the Organiser software and is not visible to the user. Version numer syntax is the same as that of the Organiser software.

Bluetooth software: this software controls the Bluetooth hardware of your device


Creating MBM files with BMCONV.EXE

MBM files (MultiBitMap) are pictures in native Symbian OS format. MBM files can consist of either one or multiple pictures (frames).

You can convert your pictures to the MBM format (e.g. to use them in your P900 Themes) using BMCONV.EXE tool included in the UIQ SDK package.

When creating multi-frame MBM pictures, first create all pictures to be converted and save them as separate files in BMP format (BMP is an uncompressed format and it doesn't degrade your pictures' quality).

BMCONV.EXE is a console program that has to be run from a command line (DOS box). To make things easier, copy the BMCONV.EXE program and your pictures to the same folder - this way you won't have to write full path for every picture in your command line.

Lauch your Command Prompt window and change current directory to the one with your pictures and the BMCONV.EXE program by typing CD path_to_the_folder.

The syntax for the BMCONV.EXE program is as follows:

BMCONV.EXE name_of_mbm_file_to_be_created.mbm [colors]name_of_first_bmp_file.bmp [colors]name_of_the_second_bmp_file.bmp .... [colors]name_of_last_bmp.bmp

[colors] is the numer of colors to be used in the destination MBM frame. Valid options are: /1, /2, /4, /8 for greyscale images (e.g. /1 produces a black&white image while /8 generates an image with 265 shades of grey) and /c4, /c8, /c12, /c16, /c24, /c32 for the number of bits for color images (e.g use /c8picture.bmp to convert a 256-color picture.bmp file or /c16picture.bmp to convert a 16-bit picture.bmp image). There is no space between the number of colors parameter (e.g. /c16) and the file name of your picture to be converted.

For example, if you create a new MBM file (called newfile.mbm) with three frames from three pictures in BMP format called picture1.bmp, picture2.bmp and picture3.bmp with the first picture being a 16-bit image, the second picture being another 16-bit image and the third picture being an 8-bit greyscale map, use:

BMCONV.EXE newfile.mbm /c16picture1.bmp /c16picture2.bmp /8picture3.bmp

That's all....


How to create own Themes? (UIQ 2.1 only)
Themes, introduced in UIQ 2.1 (P900, BenQ P30), are downloadable/installable packs containing graphics and audio files, which are used to customize the user interface of your UIQ smartphone.

Theme pack is a file with .utz extension. It is a normal ZIP archive with any unique name and extension changed from .zip to .utz. This means that after changing the extension from .utz back to .zip you can open the file in any ZIP manager and check/modify its contents.

XML file:

Each theme consists of an XML document (always called Theme.xml) and picture/sound files used by your theme. XML file contains description of your theme, i.e. colors, background pictures, ringtones and alarm tones to be set. Each file mentioned in the XML file has to be included in the archive, but the archive may also contain other UI elements that are not described in the XML document - the system adds them automatically if they are present in the pack, based on their names.

The format used in the XML file looks like the following:

The first two lines are obligatory - they inform the system that this is a Theme pack.

The third line contains information about Theme name, author name and copyrights. The "title" parameter is MANDATORY. Take care to use some unique name for your theme as two themes with identical names can't be installed at the same time. "Screenwidth" and "screenheight" are also MANDATORY and their values have to be always the same as in the above example. "Author" and "copyright" parameters are optional and you can skip them.

Next two lines tell the system which images will be used as background pictures for the Flip open (Applications launcher) and Flip closed screen. Both are optional. If you skip any (or both) of them, the wallpaper won't be set. However, if you decide to use them, you have to include picture(s) in the theme archive. Both pictures can be in any of the supported formats (GIF, PNG, JPEG, BMP, MBM etc.) and their names have to be the same as used in the XML file. The resolution of your Flip closed wallpaper is 208x189 and the resolution of Flip open wallpaper is 208x256 pixels.

The next part between two "CondensedColorScheme" tags describes colors of the user interface (menus, windows, dialogs, text etc). All three lines of this section ("darkcolor", "midcolor" and "lightcolor") are MANDATORY. You have to use hexadecimal values for your colors. Hex values can be obtained in advanced graphic programs like Photoshop - you can select your favourite color in their palette window and the corresponding hexadecimal value will be displayed for you to copy and paste to your theme file.

The "SystemSound" part is OPTIONAL. You can use it if you want to include ringtones and alarms in your theme. You can use ALL or ANY of the sound types shown in our example above. E.g. you can only set the main ringtone and skip all the rest. All files have to be included in the archive in any of the supported formats (MP3, WAV, MID etc).

The above screenshot only shows some parameters. Full list of all possible tone types can be checked in C:\System\Data\themes\sound folder - simply use folder names as parameters for sound files to be installed with your theme. Folder names are pretty obvious and don't require desciption.

The last part (colors id="FcStandby") is responsible for color of texts displayed in the Flip closed mode (Phone screen). This part is OPTIONAL. "Operator" is the color of your operator name. "Softkeys" is the color of text displayed above the "OK" button. "Clock" is the color of time and date displayed in FC mode. "Alarm" is the color of alarm time in FC mode. "Other" is the color of Area info displayed under the operator name (if your network supports Area info).

Other files:

Your theme pack may contain other files. They are not mentioned in the XML file because they are used automatically if the system finds them in your pack. If they are not there, the system will use colors (defined in the XML file) instead of graphic skins. This may be useful if you want to save some operating memory. All these files have to be called exactly as below and they have to be in Symbian's native MBM format. Their resolution has to be as described here while the number of colors is not important.

AppickerSkin.mbm: This file is the backgroung picture for the top "icon bar" of your phone in Flip Open mode (the one with 6 customizable application icons). It also contains the "selection image" that is shown under the selected icon. The MBM file consists of 3 frames. The first frame contains a 208x25 pixel skin for the icon bar. The next frame contains 6 "selection images" aligned vertically. Each image is 40x25 pixels. The whole frame is 40x150 pixels. There are 6 images in this frame because you can make each of the 6 icons on top of your screen have a different shape of the selection. The third frame is a greyscale "mask" for the second frame. Use white color for areas of the previous frame that you want to display and black color for areas of the previous frame that you want to make transparent. You can also use shades of grey for partial transparency - the darker grey the more transparent the area. This third frame should be created as 8-bit greyscale.

DialogSkin.mbm: the skin for the title bar of all dialog windows. This MBM file contains TWO frames: the first frame is for normal dialog title bar and the second frame is for "selected" dialog title bar (e.g. when you tap on it or drag it). Resolution: 208x25.

FcTitleBarSkin.mbm: the skin for top bar of Flip closed mode. Resolution: 208x20. This file consists of one frame only.

LauncherSkin.mbm: background "balls" for application icons in Applications launcher. This file consists of two frames. The first frame consists of 5 "balls" aligned vertically, each 44 pixels high/wide. You can use 5 identical "balls" if you want a static selection or you can make an animated selection by creating each ball as one frame of your animation. Resolution of the entire picture: 44x220. The second frame is a greyscale "mask" for the second frame. Use white color for areas of the previous frame that you want to display and black color for areas of the previous frame that you want to make transparent. You can also use shades of grey for partial transparency - the darker grey the more transparent the area. This frame should be created as 8-bit greyscale. Of course, your "balls" don't have to have a ball shape - you can use any other shape.

ListBoxSkin.mbm: this is a "bar" used for selection on a list. Resolution: 60x19. This MBM picture consists of one frame only.

MenuSkin.mbm: this file consists of FIVE frames. The first frame is a background for menu bar. Its resolution is 208x22. The second frame is a bar that indicates selected menu title. Resolution: 19x19. The third frame is a mask for the second frame and has the same resolution of 19x19. This frame is a greyscale "mask" for the second frame. Use white color for areas of the previous frame that you want to display and black color for areas of the previous frame that you want to make transparent. You can also use shades of grey for partial transparency - the darker grey the more transparent the area. The fourth frame is a menu selection bar. Resolution: 19x18. The fifth frame is also menu selection bar, but in selected (i.e. "clicked") state - you can make it e.g. a bit darker or lighter than that in the fourth frame. It has the same resolution of 19x18.

StatusBarSkin.mbm: the skin for the bottom bar of your phone in Flip Open mode and for the top bar in Flip closed mode. Consists of two horizontal strips, each 18 pixels high, 208 pixels wide. Resolution of the entire image: 208x36.

MenuExtraSkin.mbm: this file contains skins for the "drop down" menus' background. It consists of four frames. The first frame is the actual background image. Good size to try is 76x58 pixels. The central part of the picture will be repeated to cover the menu size. Top, bottom, right and left 12 pixels of this picture will be shown on the menu's edges, so - if you want - you can use them for some 3D effect or for some frame that will be drawn around the menu body. The second frame contains the bar/stripe that separates menu sections. Use 76x2 pixels size. The third frame is a collection of radio buttons that appear on the menus. The 8 images in the first row are all round option buttons (clear, set, clear highlighted, set highlighted, clear dimmed highlighted, set dimmed highlighted). The second row begins with four ticks (set, set highlighted, set dimmed, set dimmed highlighed), and the four last buttons contained in it are the arrows indicating that there is a cascading sub-menu (set, set highlighted, set dimmed, set dimmed highlighed). The size of each image shall be in the area of 14x14 pixels, so the whole BMP shall be 112x28. Finally, the fourth frame is a transparency mask for the third frame. Use white color for areas of the previous frame that you want to display and black color for areas of the previous frame that you want to make transparent. You can also use shades of grey for partial transparency - the darker grey the more transparent the area.

Note: if your are not going to create skins with many graphic elements on their entire area but only color bars with one pattern, you can save some memory by making them much smaller. In such case, your skins don't have to have full screen width (208 pixels). It is enough to create a shorter skin, i.e. both sides (e.g. corners) and some short central part - the center of your skin will be copied by the system to fill the entire bar width between corners. Experiment with it yourself to obtain the best result.

Flip closed mode icons:

The last thing you can change using Themes is background "balls" of Flip closed mode icons. Skins for these "balls" have to be put in a separate folder in your pack (while all the remaining files are in the "root" of your package). The folder is called "Standby" and should contain 3 image files in PNG format. The resolution of all three pictures is 42x42:

ShortCutSelectedBall.png: this image contains the ball in selected state (i.e. when you select an icon by rotating jog dial).

ShortCutUnselectedBall.png: the ball in unselected (i.e. normal) state.

ShortCutHalo.png: this picture contains a "halo", i.e. a "selection circle" that moves between icons when you rotate the jog dial.

These pictures have to be created in PNG format. PNG supports transparency. Unlike with the MBM frames, there is no need to make a separate mask for transparent areas. Simply create your PNGs with transparent parts for areas you want to be invisible and that's it.

That's all. All you have to do now is to complete all your files: the Theme.xml file, all image and ringtone files in the same folder as the Theme.xml file plus (optionally) the FC mode icon balls in a separate "Standby" folder and ZIP them all using any ZIP archiver. Then just change the extension of your ZIP archive to .utz and you can upload and install the theme in your machine. Have fun!

(part 3)

Hidden network lock menu

Another hidden menu related to network locks can be invoked by entering the following combination on phone screen in flip closed mode:

jog dial down * * jog dial down


Hidden service menu

There is a hidden service menu in P800. It can be accessed in Flip closed mode on Phone standby screen or in Flip removed mode with virtual keyboard turned on.

To activate the hidden menu close the flip or activate virtual keypad and enter the following combination:

turn jog dial up * jog dial down jog dial down * jog dial down *

The Service information screen contains following options: Software information, Hardware information, SIM locks, Configuration, Format internal disk.

Software information shows PDA, Phone, Bluetooth and CDA firware versions.

Hardware information displays IMEI number. SIM locks screen shows whether your device is locked to a network or not.

Configuration screen shows information about codecs (HR, FR, EFR) and bands (900, 1800, 1900). "Format internal disk" lets you erase disk C: Be careful! This removes all user data and applications!


How to reformat Nokia 7700 and 7710?

In case of serious problems with your Nokia 7700/7710 (if e.g. your phone doesn't start or it is very unstable) use the following method to reformat the device. Please, be aware that this function brings your phone back to a factory state, i.e. it removes all applications, files and data.

Disconnect the charger and remove the battery.

Wait for about ten seconds and insert the battery to start the device.

When you see the NOKIA welcome screen, immediately press and hold two lower keys on the left side (the [= key and the Menu key) and shortly after that press and hold the second key from the top on the right side on the phone.

Confirm that you want to format. Formatting will start.



Tip 1 : Do u know how to use the edit button (abc or pencil button)?
Heres how... in the inbox for example; u wanna 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 : Shit happens, on a smartphone, its inevitable u do something wrong, and tis calls for a format of fone. to format the fone, press *#7370#, then enter the lock code, which is the sec code of the fone. NOTE: batt must b full, else if format is disrupted by low batt, consequences will b disatrous
I heard the code *#7780# works too, pretty much the same i tink.
for 6600 users, to format the fone, theres an alternative way. Press and hold <3>, <*>, and the buttons, then power on fone, keep holding on the 3 buttons, till u come to a format screen. tis method ONLY works on 6600, and need not enter the sec code. BUT sec code wun be reset to default 12345.

Tip 3 : TO NGAGE USERS; Did u know u can install .sis files simply using the cable given? Juz plug it in, place the .sis file anywhere on e: (the mmc), not in any folders, root of e:, disconnect, then look for it in manager.

Tip 4: Save on battery and system memory being used by regulary checking the task manager which can be accessed by holding down the menu button!!

Tip 4a: Set the screen saver to a short time out period to prolong battery life.
