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?
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?
Q. How do I recalibrate the touchscreen on my smartphone? Some of the taps get mis-registered!
Q. I see the new Nokia E55 and E52 have an EdoF camera. What is EdoF?
Q. For a premium camera and camcorder smartphone, the Nokia N86 8MP (in my case) is proving disappointing – low light photos are blurred and not much better than those from other phones!
Q. Why do all the recent Nseries phones from Nokia make blurry videos?
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've got a friend with a Nokia 5800 and his device has all manner of whizzy screen transitions whereas my 5800 doesn't. I can't find a setting for this anywhere, however much I delve into the 5800's menus. Does it depend on where we got our 5800s from?
Q. My Eseries phone is often quite slow to respond after I pick it up, it seems to wait for a second or so before responding to my keypresses!
