Suggestion: combine forums

Just a thought, but there's a lot of essentially dead forums on here.

I'd combine them so the split was by software version, such as S60v2, S60v3, S60v5/Symbian^1, Symbian^3 etc. Currently it's...

I don't know if this would work, but there's an app called MagicKey that allows you to bind different functions to different keys. You could try seeing if it would allow you to swap the take picture...

Just keep adding extra people or numbers in the To: field of the create SMS screen. You can have multiple recipients in it and it'll send the SMS to them all.

Why don't you do a poll then? Or better yet, get Symbian to do it themselves?

I say that, because of the 14 people I know with Symbian phones, 10 have installed apps. Of those 10, 4 have their...

Assuming that all applications are signed. A high proportion of Symbian users hack their phones to install unsigned apps, including ones that update themselves.

I'm on the fence.

I can see benefits to applications self-updating, such as access to betas, and for many it works well. But it does require far more button presses in the long run compared to a...

Not sure if this is what you meant, but A-GPS does NOT mean there is no real GPS. Assisted GPS still has a real GPS chip, but it uses network methods such as cell IDs and wi-fi to get location faster...

Skype wasn't their top pick - the list wasn't ordered.

I tried commenting to say that Nimbuzz and Opera Mobile should be on the list.

I'd rather a touch screen with a keypad, like this: http://www.gsmarena.com/i_mate_ultimate_9150-1884.php

Yes, there is a gap.

I just couldn't recommend a non-Nokia Symbian phone to anyone. The Satio is great, but it's not got the eco-system that's required. Same applies to the Vivaz, Vivaz Pro and...

See, this is where Nokia will screw up. They could upgrade the N8 to Symbian^4, they could push the platform, but they won't. For a period of say three years, every Symbian handset should get updates...

Any ideas where on the C drive it stores the fact you've installed a trial? I don't want to do a hard reset, but I'd like to try the newer build, except it won't let me install it.

My bill is around what it was 10 years ago (£20), but less than it was 5 years ago (£45).

Reason for that is that 10 years ago, all I did was very occasional calls and maybe 200 texts a month, at...

Not really. Sure Symbian is the kernel of MOAP-S but since I don't live in Japan and neither do probably 99% of the readers of AAS, we'll never be buying a Fujitsu Symbian handset.

I feel let down by Nokia, they said they'd be releasing more N series Symbian devices. And now they're not.

I'm sorry but this just isn't true.
