The capacitive touchscreen display measures 2.46 inches and comes with a display resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The pixel density of this phone is higher than that of iPhone’s Retina display.

Below the display are the usual soft keys and five way d-pad and below it is the QWERTY keyboard. On the right of the phone are the volume controller buttons and display lock slider.

FingerPrint Scanner for Symbian Phones

How cool is it to have a touchscreen phone which can scan fingerprint and unlock itself only when it matches with yours?

Here you have it – FingerPrint application for Symbian phones!

Okay, this doesn’t really turn your Symbian phone into a fingerprint scanner. We all know that it is impossible, right? This trick application can really pull a fast one on your friends when you demostrate to them how you can unlock your phone with this fingerprint scanner.

When the FingerPrint screen pops up, you can press your thumb or finger against your phone’s screen to be “scanned” for your identity. Once you do that, the phone will begin vibrating and emitting beeps to create the impression that it is scaning your fingerprint. However, the phone doesn’t really scan your fingerprint! It will unlock the phone once you remove your finger when it has reached the correct number of beeps or vibrations that you have previously configured.

Only you know how it works, so you can have some fun fooling your friends with this application!

Using OviMaps for GPS on Your Nokia

Ovi Maps was first known as Nokia Maps and to use it the users had to pay subscription fees. Most people could not afford to pay high subscription fees to get navigation information. Soon Nokia Maps evolved into Ovi Maps that came with plenty of new features but still users were required to pay high subscription fees to use it. Soon Nokia realized that their GPS application is not being used by the people. Rather people preferred to use Google Maps which was available for free. In order to keep with the competition Nokia started giving the Ovi Maps for free which means users are not required to pay any fee to use it. Moreover, most of the new cell phones released by Nokia have Ovi Maps application pre-installed on it.

You can download the latest version of the Ovi Maps from the Nokia Betalabs website for free.  Ovi Maps is one of the most user-friendly GPS applications for Symbian phones. Once you install the Ovi Maps application on your Nokia phone, a ‘Maps’ icon will appear in the Main Menu. After launching the ‘Maps’ application, you will see several icons in it such as My Position, Search, Share location, Favorites, Drive, and Walk. Here is a low down on the features of Ovi Maps

1. My Position – When you click on it, the GPS will get activated and the application will show your location. In order to receive the GPS signal, you should be in a open area. If you are inside the house  or some place where the phone is not able to receive the signal properly, the application will fail to show your location.

2. Search – It allows you to enter the name of a place where you want to go.  To refine your search, you can browse through various categories such as Automotive, Schools, Hospitals, etc . A search will yield many results. If you happen to find the appropriate place, you can choose the Drive or Walk option to navigate to that place. In order to show you the navigation path, the application will first lock the GPS and then display you the navigation path.

3.  Share – It allows you to share your location with your buddies on your social networking sites. For this you are required to login with your Ovi Maps account.

4. Favorites – It will show the list of places that you have added as favorites.

5. Drive – It will help you to drive to your home location or to a place that you have saved as favorites on the map or to any place on the map.

6. Walk – It will help you to walk to your home location or to a place that you have saved as favorites on the map or to any place on the map.

7. Voice navigation  – You can go into the Settings and then inside the Navigation option you can download the voice navigation feature. You can download voice navigation in various languages such as US English, UK English,  Korean language, etc.  The voice navigation feature will play voice and tell you turn left or right  in order to guide you to your destination.

8. Synchronization – You can access Ovi Maps on your PC by visiting the maps.ovi.com website and entering the Nokia account login details and there you can add places to the Favorites menu. After you launch the Ovi Maps application, go to the Favorites menu and then click on Synchronize with Ovi and then your Ovi Maps application that is present on your phone will synchronize with the Favorites that is present on the maps.ovi.com website.

Remove Stubborn Applications from Your Symbian Phone

Symbian cell phones allow you install a wide range of applications on your phone such as call recording, personal organizer, music player, video player and Symbian_Uninstall_imagemany more. Hence, Symbian users love to install applications on their phone. Many of the applications are available for free through various forum websites that are available on the internet. One can easily download them to their phone and checkout the application.

If you do not like any application, you can simply uninstall applications from your phone by using the Manager function. While checking out different applications, you may find some applications that remain in the phone even though they do not work or you may find yourself having a tough time removing an unwanted application. Removing them from the phone is the only solution. However, when you try to remove them, you may find it very difficult to get rid of them. Hence, Symbian users may have many times come across a situation wherein they are not able to uninstall such application. Then how can one remove such stubborn applications from the phone?

Here is a simple solution for your problem:

  1. Download a file explorer program such as FExplorer and install it in the phone memory of your cell phone.
  2. Run the application and navigate to the path where the application that you want to remove is located. Most of the time, we install applications in the memory card of the phone. So you can find the application in the following path: E:\system\apps
  3. When you are at this location, you will see a number of folders with the name of the application. You can easily locate any application’s folder by its name and uninstall it. In order to delete any application, simply delete the folder having the application’s name.
  4. You can delete by highlighting the folder that you want to delete and then go to Options> File> Delete.
  5. The stubborn application has been removed from your phone. You may go to the Manager and check if the deleted application is still listed. If it listed, try to uninstall from the Manager. After this, you may restart your phone.

Doing this is very easy; however, it becomes a bit difficult when the application you are trying to delete is a Java application or a Java game. The reason behind this is that the folders of such applications and games are not listed by the name of the application in the location: E:\system\apps. The application folders are labeled with numbers. In such a situation, you can open each and every folder and open the text file inside it. The text file will show you the name of the application. Once you have found the right one, you can follow the Step no. 4 and Step no.5 to remove stubborn applications from your Symbian phone.
