Joystick woe's

Got friends with N73,6600 and 3230 all with some problem with their phones joystick. I have never liked joystick on phones. Even when playing games I prefer the 6630 over the E61 because of the joystick. In one of my friend's N73 the joystick has come out completely. I believe thats the reason why newer phones now don't have joysticks - check out N95 , E61i , n76 they don't have a joystick :)

Carbide.c++ v1.2 is out

Carbide.c++ v1.2 supporting the new Open C SDK plugin is now available for download on forum nokia.

More info here.

n95 price India

Somewhere in my earlier post I mentioned that the n95 would cost around 40K in India, but sites like ebay and univercell have priced it for ~ 34K.

Waiting, waiting, waiting...

Many of my friends are in search of a new phone, they have been asking me for suggestions for some 3/4 months now. According to their feature requirements I suggested quiet some phones having S60 3rd Ed, but all these phones were like announced and none of them were in the market. They decided to wait. Some of these phones are the N76 , 6290, E90, E61i.

They are still waiting :(
I wonder why phones are announced so early.

Some of the recently announced phones are
Nokia : 5700 XpressMusic and 6120.
Samsung : SGH-i400
Motorola: Motorizr Z8
LG : Joy

Mobical :A friend indeed

Many of us have more than one phone, now even I fall under that category.
I just won E61 in a contest and so have been using both my phones often.So how did i copy all my hundreds of contacts,notes and calender entries to the new one, MOBICAL.
Not only it helped me to transfer, it also keeps both my phones contents in Sync.
Here's the website.

Volume control

On the E50 and the n73 I noticed that to increase the volume in Media player one has to use the keys provided at the side of the phone. Pretty annoying because the left/right joystick could be used instead. The good thing is that it works on the E61 & the n95 (may be more phones).

BTW i just got my hands on the n95, gr8 phone. Will post more on it later with pics.

Strange again : E61 mail client (mail vanishing act)

I have configured Gmail on E61. When I get a new mail and I choose to see the mail it disappers.
This is the sequence that happens :

A 'Connect to mailbox' option pops up when I press 'Show' for the new mail. If 'Yes' is selected on 'Connect to mailbox' the mail dissapears, if 'No' then it remains.

This is strange, i noticed that i can dial p and after that w on the idle screen of my E61.
Dont understand the purpose. VVStrange.

The most awaited phone set to arrive in India

Yeah, the advertisments for the n95 "Multimedia computer" are out.
Undoubtedly its the most awaited phone for all symbian freaks and its my favourite too.
Priced around $750 in internationally , so its something close to 32/33K here.

Toggle profile silent/general

I always loved this feature on sony ericsson where you could toggle between general/silent with one touch button. Wished it was there on nokia's.

You know what, its already there. Been using my 6630 for 2 years now and today i came to know that a long press on # toggles between general/silent.

Just read on Darla's blog , it says it works for most of nseries devices. Just tried it on my 6630 it worked :D , doesn't work on my friends 6681 though.
