Q. I have purchased a Nokia Eseries phone and am generally very happy with it. However, its headline feature, Nokia Messaging built-in, is proving a real pain since it continually pops up messages asking for an access point, and insists on checking for email, EVEN WHEN I'VE EXPLICITLY EXITED MESSAGING! Please save me from Nokia Messaging hell!
Q. I have recently been doing a clean up on my microSD card and have come across a very large file in one directory: /private/101ffc31/glxmdstn. My PC doesn't recognize it and it isn't visible in my phone's file browser. The file is a whopping 140MB. What purpose does it have? Is it safe to delete it? Maybe it's obsolete data?
Q. I'm having problems with my Nokia S60 3rd Edition-powered E75, which I've had for almost a year. First of all, the available space on its internal disk has been dwindling and is now down to 10MB or so. I thought I'd try taking your oft-given advice and backup/wipe/restore, but File manager>Backup is giving me a 'Memory full' error, even though it's the only thing running! Help!
Q. I like having my Calendar appointments show up on the homescreen of my Nokia N97, but it's hard to get a feel for my busy life when only two appointments are shown. Can I adjust the font to show more entries?
Q. How do I turn off the auto-application of the 'keyguard' on S60 5th Edition phones like the 5800 XpressMusic?
Q. I'm utterly bamboozled by the way the screen of my Nokia touchscreen phone goes black and unresponsive when I make or receive a phone call, giving me no chance of switching on speakerphone or entering tones. I've tried updating the firmware and resetting it, to no avail - the moment a call is made, the screen goes blank immediately. And then returns to normal after the call. Can you help?
Q. I've got a Nokia S60 5th Edition phone and have a wierd problem. Everything works fine apart from dialogs which have tabs in them. Here, my taps on each tab have no effect and I'm effectively restricted to just the first tab. Very frustrating. Any ideas?
Q. Music player on my old Nokia smartphone seems to have developed a few glitches. The main problem seems to be that some 'albums', synced across from Windows Media Player have duplicated track entries. If I try to play these ghost tracks I just get an exclamation mark and Music player skips ahead to the next one. How can I clean things up?
Q. I've subscribed to over a dozen podcasts on my old Nokia smartphone and now want to get the same shows set up on my new one. But most of them aren't in Nokia's Podcasting directory - I've built up my favourites over quite some time and really don't want to have to type in all the URLs all over again. Isn't there a quick way?
Q. In an attempt to work out why my microSD card was full, I connected my smartphone to my Mac in 'Disk Transfer' mode. Aha - I found a load (Gigabytes!) of old music files from when I used to sync my phone with a Windows PC. I then deleted the root directory containing all these files and.... it seems that the disk is still full! Obviously, there's something going wrong in the counting, but what, and how do I fix it?
Q. How can I save images from web pages using the built-in S60 browser?
Q. I'm trying to set up some repeated entries in S60 Calendar, to remind me of various weekly chores, but even though I mark them in the dialog as repeated 'Weekly', after pressing 'Done' they get changed back to 'Not repeated'. What's going on?
Q. My daughter set an image from my gallery as 'Wallpaper' on my S60 phone and now I can't seem to get rid of it. I've tried changing the theme (including using the default one) and rebooting. What am I missing?
Q. I need to copy web addresses that I discover and paste them into a Content Management System (CMS) for my blog. Can this be done in Symbian Web?
Q. Having bought the Nokia 5800, with its central feature being the large touchscreen, I'm dumbfounded that there was no Sketch utility included, to take advantage of it. Where's the missing functionality? I've got nothing to use the supplied stylus for drawing!
