Missing applications on S60 5th Edition

Q. Having upgraded from a Nokia N95 to a 5800 XpressMusic, I've been very happy with the extra functionality and that lovely large screen. However, quite a few of the utilities that I'd grown to depend on in the N95 seem to have disappeared. Specifically Sync, N-Gage, Search, Connection Manager, GPS Data, Wireless Keyboard and Memory (Backup). Whew, quite a long list, actually. Can any of these be downloaded separately?

Faster music access

Q. I've got almost 1000 songs loaded on my Nokia smartphone, whose mass memory is now about 75% full. Music is played fine, but getting to a particular track is very slow when its name doesn't come near the start or end of the alphabet. Browsing by artist sometimes speeds things up, but many of my (legally) ripped CDs are 'Various Artists', so I'm stuck. What music utilities are there to help speed up finding particular songs?

Why is the size of the firmware update different?

Q. Why is the size of the firmware update through the phone itself (Over The Air) around  a few MB (at most), while Ovi Suite says the update is well over 100MB?

Pay-as-you-go data now more expensive

Q. I use a Vodafone pay as you go SIM card with my Nokia smartphone and until recently I've been very happy. I only use mobile data sparingly, grabbing email every now and then and hardly using Web over 3G. And in the last few months, my SIM credit has been draining far faster than it used to. Do you think it's something I've installed?

Backing up everything?

Q. How can I back up everything on my Symbian smartphone? Not just data, but every application, every license key, and so on?

My phone remembers too much about me!

Q. I'm worried about securing my sensitive data on my Symbian phone should it be lost. I've got the really personal stuff in Handy Safe Pro, but I'm talking here about about auto-logins for Gmail and web forums (both using login data from previous sessions). I'm also worried about securing notes and downloaded emails.

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?

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

Q. Is there a way to permanently delete information on my S60 phone? I have had several confidential documents and want to be able to electronically shred them after use, such that they can't later be recovered.

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?

Why do I still need a mains charger?

Q. With my new Nokia N85 now using USB charging, why do I still need a mains charger? This phone came with both!

Enabling writing aids

Q. On my Nokia E75, I'd like the same word correction and completion aids as on my friend's E71. How exactly do I turn these on?

Resetting wallpaper: harder than it looks!

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?
