Kilometres to Miles

Q. I'm generally quite happy with Ovi Maps on my new Nokia N97 mini – I downloaded the new v3.0 and it's proved superbly reliable. But I'm not happy with all the distances being in metric. I know Finland wouldn't know their inches from their miles, but is there any hope?

Broken thumbnails

Q. When I go to Photos on my new N97 it shows the icon of one picture I took a few weeks ago (all others have all been transferred off onto my PC). However, when I tap the icon to open it, I get the broken image icon and a 'General system error' when I try to delete it. The picture isn't visible in Windows Explorer when my phone is connected to my PC. How do I remove the broken image completely?

Adaptor woes, changing headphones on the Nokia E71

Q. I'm new to Symbian phones, but really loving my Nokia E71. I think it is a thing of beauty and probably the greatest phone I have ever owned. I have one slight niggle though, the provided headset hurts my ears. I got a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter and bought a high quality stereo headset with a 3.5mm 4 pole jack. But the phone won't recognise it as a headset, though music plays OK. How can I use the headset for calls as well?

Deleting confidential files for good

A dim E90

Q. On my Nokia E90, I've upgraded to new firmware and seem to have disabled the ability to change the screen brightness on the internal screen. It is considerably darker than the external screen (which I am still able to change). I think it has been set to minimum illumination by default. Is this a deliberate measure in order to prolong battery life or a bug?

No more security warnings

Q. Help! I'm getting utterly fed up with all the security warnings in Web on my Nokia smartphone. For example, “You are leaving a secure page. Continue?”. Over and over again. Talk about living in a nanny state! Is there a way to upgrade Web so that it doesn't keep nagging me?

Desk Clock

Q. My Nokia N97 (mini) sits happily open, angled nicely on my desk. I'd like it to act as a desk clock, i.e. keep its screen on, showing the current time. Power isn't a problem, as I usually have it plugged into a microUSB lead.

Low light blur on N86 photos

Q. For a premium camera and camcorder smartphone, the Nokia N86 8MP (in my case) is proving disappointing – low light photos are blurred and not much better than those from other phones!
