Why can I send MMS messages but not receive them?

Q. I can send MMS messages, but I can't actually receive them. When someone sends a picture to me, I don't see the actual picture. but a link to a page on my network provider's web site instead. I've double checked the MMS settings and they seem to be correct.

Viewing the number used by an existing contact

Q. When I've missed a call, Log just shows me the name of the caller. While this is very friendly, it would be useful to know which number they were calling from (e.g. home or mobile) and also show the number itself, so that I could dial back from my own (cheaper) landline. Can this be done?

How can I send email, as well as receive it, over GPRS?

Overnight battery drain with a Bluetooth smartphone

Q. I'm mystified. I go to bed at night with my smartphone next to me, showing a full charge, and in the morning it's down to almost zero. I've rebooted and made sure that there no extra, running applications that might be hammering the processor, and yet every night the story's the same. Is my smartphone faulty?

Keeping data while having your smartphone's firmware upgraded

Q. My Nokia smartphone is quite an early example and I've had few problems with it. I've read quite a bit about making sure to keep Symbian smartphones upgraded to the latest firmware version, but I'm worried about losing data and about the inconvenience of being without my device. Is it all worth it and what should I do to ensure I keep all my information?

Is there a 'Dummies' book to help me with Series 60 smartphones?

Q. Despite Nokia's pretty good manual and despite me surfing a number of popular web sites, I'm still struggling with the Series 60 interface and get confused easily. Isn't there a 'Dummies' book for people like me?

Can I use a domestic 3.5mm headphone set?

Q. The stereo headset supplied with my Nokia smartphone isn't bad for listening to music on the go, but when I'm in a quiet environment (like my boat or caravan) I'd like to use my own set of professional headphones. Can the two be plugged together?

Last ditch cures for battery charging/power on problems

Q. My new Nokia smartphone has turned off by itself. I thought it was the battery and I tried to charge it but the phone didn't show any sign that it was plugged in. I tried to turn it on again but it only showed a white screen and after 2 sec turned off again. Will flashing it to the latest firmware help to solve the problem?

Low battery life, no rogue applications

Q. My Nokia smartphone doesn't seem to take long to get through a full battery charge. I've read tips about checking for rogue programs in memory and I regularly use TaskSpy, but by the end of a day on the road the battery's almost always very low. Do you think it's charging properly?

Getting rid of 'Installation security error'

Q. Having bought a new Nokia smartphone, I'm having problems installing most of the programs I've downloaded. The error message is 'Installation security error, unable to install'. I spoke to Nokia and they say there is no security feature to prevent software installation.

How can I see how many GPRS data bytes I used in my last connection?

Q. The built-in Log application just shows me a summary of the total GPRS bytes sent and received since I last cleared the 'counters'. It's really tiresome having to clear these counters before using an online application just to see how many bytes I use up each time. Is there an easier way? I've seen a third party utility, Extended Log, but I really don't want to pay for something so large and complex just to do this simple job.

How do I backup my phone to the memory card (MMC/RS-MMC/miniSD)?

Q. When getting my firmware upgraded, or when resetting a device using restore to factory settings codes, it is useful to be able to back up the internal memory of my device. How can I do this?
