Q. I'm lusting after a new Nokia 9500 but seem to be stuck back in the Psion age. My contacts are spread across a dozen Psion Series 3mx Data files ('Business', 'Travel', etc.) and I also have an Agenda going back to 1997. Will be able to bring this data into 2006?
Q. How can I browse around the ROM in my Nokia 9500? It's always interesting...
Q. I’m getting my Nokia 9500 shortly and am a bit worried about how to move everything across from my old Nokia 9210i. Can you spell it out for me, please?
Q. I recently had a chance to buy a Nokia 9300 for a nice price from a friend. I already had a Nokia 9500, which I'd backed up regularly. How can I restore my backup from the 9500 to the 9300? I tried but there seems to be no option to do this, as PC Suite doesn't let me select the 9500 backup file when I have 9300 connected.
Q. I am repeatedly seeing a message 'memory full' on my Nokia 9210i, even though I've moved all my documents to the memory card. Now I can't use my Communicator because I don't want to delete the only remaining files I can find there - my large (over a thousand) store of SMS messages and Calendar data. And when I go to 'Control Panel | Memory | Device', it says that out of 16MB available, 11MB are mysterious 'other file types'. I connected the 9210i to my PC, but there I could see only two folders on the 'C' disc: 'Documents' (almost zero) and 'System' (5MB). What's eating up all my memory?
Q. I’m forever having problems with ‘Insufficient memory’ on my old Nokia 9210i Communicator. Short of selling it and buying something else, isn’t there anything that can be done to help the situation?
Q. A month ago, I started working on a document on my Nokia 9500 and even gave it a name 'Article start'. The trouble is that I can't see it in Documents' 'Recent documents' list and it's not in all the obvious places ('My files', root directory, etc.) Has my document slipped through a black hole into deepest space?
Q. On all Nokia's documentation, it says that my Nokia 9500 has MIDP 2.0 (a type of Java support) installed. However, when I look in the Java installer on my 9500 (called 'Applications') and go to 'Help | About', it says that I have MIDP 1.0 only. Can you help clear up the confusion? I'm trying to install certain J2ME applications, but they crash with 'exception' error messages.
Q. I recently went to China for work. Just before I left the UK, I put in all flight details from Shanghai to LA. The Shanghai to LA flight was leaving on the Monday at 12:30 PM. When I arrived in Shanghai I changed my clock over to Shanghai time so I could set my alarms for the week. At this point the phone told me that all my Calendar enteries where being updated by 8 hours. So when I went into my Calendar for that Monday, my flight was now leaving at 8:30 PM. Why does the 9500 do this? No matter where I go on Earth the flight was still leaving at 12:30 PM local time. What can I do to stop this from happening in the future?
Q. As Nokia does not provide a vibrate mode for the 9500, I decided to use a Bluetooth headset with a built-in vibrator. As a result, I have to keep Bluetooth always on, will this be a problem for the Communicator? Is there a possibility of virus attack?
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?
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?
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?
Q. I'd been trying out trial versions of some utilities on my new Nokia S60 smartphone and after installing the last one, suddenly the smartphone rebooted itself. Or rather it tried to. Now when I power it on, all I get is the work 'Nokia' in big letters and then it starts again, over and over. I realise that the problem is self-inflicted here and it serves me right for fiddling too much, but what can I do to get my smartphone back to factory defaults and start syncing my data back onto it?
Q. I've fitted my partner out with a cheap Series 60 smartphone (a Nokia 6670) and need to get our 'master' contacts set over from my Nokia 9500 to her device. I've beamed the most used dozen or so entries, but I can't face beaming five hundred others! How can this be automated?
