Missing applications on S60 5th Edition

Published by Steve Litchfield at 9:57 UTC, August 25th 2010

Question:

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?

Answer:

A. Well done for spotting that Nokia have thankfully had a complete spring clean of their increasingly unwieldy application menus for S60 5th Edition and the 5800 XpressMusic - it's a great improvement but I do understand that, for S60 old-timers, some components may now be found in different places.

Start in 'Settings>Connectivity'. In there, you'll find 'Connection Manager' (useful for terminating rogue data connections) and, if you scroll down a little further, tapping into 'Data transfer' reveals 'Sync'. 'GPS Data' is now 'Location' in the Applications folder, while Memory's backup functions are now built into 'File manager'.

Of the bits that aren't there, 'Wireless keyboard' from Nokia's N95 or N82 web pages works fine on the 5800, though doubtless there will be a more official version along soon, while Search was added back in the latest firmware and N-Gage gaming is actually obsolete now, with games appearing in the Ovi Store instead.

I just got one and I hate it even the owners manual doesn't help!! Took me hours to figure out how to set my ring tones let alone attempt to figure out the phone itself!! My Blackberry doesn't have enterprise I looked all through it. Take it in to your provider hopefully they can help you figure it out. Good luck.

N95 was surely one of the better phones that Nokia ever produced..they were nicely designed and have tons of features..also it was the pioneer of the camera field as it had the best camera among all the others..
