The fonts that the phone uses are on the phone already (in Z:\System\Fonts as EPOC/Symbian font format files, .gdr): http://www.symbian.com/developer/techlib/v70sdocs/doc_source/ToolsAndUtilities/FileConversionUtilities/Tool_Guide_Fonts.guide.html

aight ... so i checked the fonts folder in z:\system\Fonts ... i have the following files :

Browsereur.gdr
CalcEur.gdr
Ceurope.gdr


i also checked the link u gave me .. its about coversion utilities for gdr fonts ..

Well i hope ur aware of a software called the Easy GDR Creator ... its a simple proggy to convert .TTF font files to .GDR files for nokia ... aight .. now the thing is i have this font that is kinda too stylish and cannot be used for the SMS input or menu character for reading ... I wana use that as the Headings and rest i want the original nokia font ... Is this possible ..
The above files i listed r i duno what files ... cause m a lil n00b in system files right now ... but i guess those r font files that nokia uses in europe .. shessh .. ok ..
Could i convert from .GDR to .TTF ??

i hope you got my problem .. hope you can help ... just hoping that changin the fonts on a phone isnt illegal ...

Thankx again N/A

aight ... i guess i finally got what i wanted ... i over looked this option while converting the font ... ascii / unicode .. no wonder i had a lil less options of symbols ..

Sorry for all that trouble .. m attaching the file i made .. hope u ppl would like it ...

1) d'load the file .. UNZIP and send to phone (via cable or bluetooth)
2) use fexplorer and create a folder [ c:\system\Fonts ]
3) copy the "samver.gdr" to the Fonts folder you just created.
4) restart

5) to remove : use font remover or just rename the file removing the .gdr extension and delete the folder
