I have no problems using the 4square feature on Gravity, so no, I don't have any specific solutions. Sorry. You'll probably need to poke them and ask for an upgrade.

I believe it will primarily use the battery, and refill the battery from the charger periodically. this is so when you pull the charger out, it doesn't cut power to the phone.

I like the NFC and extra local storage on the C7. C6-01 just seems like a strange product placement to me.

The file format of KML is super easy, just a little bit of (sane) XML. The main problem is importing the external file format. But, hopefully someone on the Maps team will implement this.

you're being charged 7 quid to receive a transfer? that sound shady to me. I would imagine that the sender (Nokia) would have to pay the costs associated with the transaction.

so, why is it a problem with switching over? I've found that using wifi uses less power than 3g data. Do you only want it to switch over when there are active data connections?

I don't understand the problem.

I have my N8 set to only switch to known WIFI points, and I don't have any issues with it connecting when I don'T want it to. Did you try that?

I tried this, but it did not install the missing Ovi Store. Yesterday, I went to a Service Center, and they had to mail my N8 back to Nokia to repair it. 2-4 weeks is their estimate. :mad:

You're describing Symbian^4, which was dropped.



This was the plan for Symbian^3 only. And is still the plan.



This is true (except for timing promises) for Symbian^3
