Bluetooth connection to my smartphone has stopped working!

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?

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 Autolock

Q. Help! I've been trying out the freeware Autolock, which locks my smartphone keypad after a set number of seconds, but I've now decided that I don't want it after all and I've removed it from my smartphone. The trouble is that the phone still locks the keypad after a couple of minutes, even though the utility is long gone. Is there something else I need to do in the smartphone's settings?

How can I quickly enter a carriage return on my smartphone?

A. I'm struggling at writing text quickly on my Nokia smartphone, even with the aid of T9 predictive text. One 'special' character I use a lot is 'carriage return' (i.e. end of paragraph). Surely there's got to be some quick way of entering this common stroke without having to bring up the 'Select symbol' list and then use seven keystrokes to select carriage return?

How can I re-save my photos at a smaller size for moblogging?

Q. I want to start moblogging from my Nokia megapixel smartphone but I'm very wary of the GPRS costs of sending my megapixel images (up to 600K each) over the air. Is there any software that can reduce the pixel size of each image prior to sending it? I don't want to take my photos in a lower resolution because at the end of the day I also want to print most of them.
