Nokia Speed Trap Detector Urban Legend spread by Nokia Engineers ;^) The settings for radar speed traps detector.

Each time you turn off your phone, or even each time you loose contact with your carrier, you'll have to activate it again... It is done using steps 1 through 5 above, but the number (00000) will be already on the field as a default

Network Monitor

Network Monitor There is a hidden menu inside your Nokia phone. If you want to activate it, you'll have to re-program some chips inside of your phone. Check your software version. You can only continue if you have v4.33, v4.73 or v5.24. Take apart the phone. De-solder the EEPROM (ATMEL AT 24C64) Read out the data with an EEPROM programmer and save it to a file (Backup) If you have v.33 or v4.73, change the address "03B8" from "00" to "FF" If you have v5.24 then change the address "0378" from "00" to "FF" Write the new data to the EEPROM and solder it back to the phone Power on your phone and you should have "Netmonitor" enabled. The Network Monitor gives you the following information: Carrier number, MS RX Level in DBM, Received signal quality, MS TX power level, C1 (Path loss criterion, used for cell selection and reselection). The range is -99 to 99, RTL (Radio link timeout), Timeslot, Indication of the transmitter status, Information on the Network parameters, TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity), Cell identification (Cell ID, Number of cells being used), MCC (Mobile country code), MCN (Mobile network code), LAC (Location area code), Ciphering (On/Off), Hopping (On/Off), DTX (On/Off), Discard cell barred information.

GSM Network Services Command Strings When various network functions are selected via the cellphone's menu using the keypad, the cellphone automatically generates the corresponding GSM network command string and transmits it to the network. These commands can however be manually entered via the keypad.

Each command is prefixed with either one or two * or # characters as follows: Register and Activate * Activate ## De-Register (and Deactivate) # Deactivate *# Check Status € ¢Ã’¢Â© Call button

Once each command has been entered, if it is a network command (as opposed to a local handset command) it must be transmitted to the network by pressing the YES (receiver) key which acts as an enter key - this is represented here with the € ¢Ã’¢Â© character. Always enter numbers in full international format +CountryAreaNumber (e.g. +447712345678).

Q: Which Symbian OS version does my phone use? A: 3600/3620/3650/3660/7650/N-Gage/N-Gage QD are using v6.1; 6260/6600/6620/6670/7610 are using v7.0s; 6630 uses Symbian OS 8.0

Q: How can I upgrade my Symbian OS to a newer version? A: You can't.

Q: How do I format my phone? A: - Normal Reset (*#7780#) : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc) - Deep Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

In both case, the phone will ask you a confirmation and you will have to enter a security code (12345 by default).

Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by these sequences.

For Symbian OS 7 (6260/6600/6620/6670/7610) there is a third method: Turn phone off, press and hold the green (talk) key on the left + number 3 on the keypad + the * key and then turn the phone back on.

The phone will start the formatting process without confirmation! Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by this.

Q: My phone reacts quite slow, how can I speed it up? A: You can speed up the phone by setting the time of the "Recent calls register" to one day (30 days by default). It depends on you how important the "Recent calls register" is for you.

1)What's the difference between the N-Gage and QD? In order to know their differences, let's compare their specs:

Original N-Gage - Triband (900/1800/1900) - 4096 colourscreen - Stereo (comes with stereo headset) - Comes with a USB cable, recording cable and adaptor cable (for recording radio/MP3 purposes) - Built in MP3 player and radio - side-talking - Must turn off the phone, remove the battery cover AND battery in order to remove MMC - 5-way direction pad (CENTER for menu selection) - Comes with BL-5C battery - MP3, AAC, MIDI or WAV ringtones - Great RF

N-Gage QD - Dualband (850/1900 or 900/1800) - 4096 colourscreen (brighter than Original N-Gage) - Mono (comes with dual mono headset) - Doesn't come with ANY cables - NO built in MP3 player or radio (will still be able to listen to mp3's thru 3rd party apps) - NO side-talking - Hot-swop, easy removal of MMC - 4-way direction pad with a separate "menu selection" key - Comes with BL-6C battery - MIDI or WAV ringtones - Great RF (better than Original N-Gage if 850 is being used)

(2) Which N-Gage is better? It's really hard to say because everyone has their own opinions. But if you are looking function-wise the original N-Gage wins out with the stereo support, MP3 ringtones, radio, tri-band and additional cables/recording functions. But the QD counters with its 850 (for those 850 gurus), smaller-size, no side-talking, BL-6C battery(for extra battery life)and the easy removal of MMC.

(3) Can my (input s60 phone here) play N-Gage games? Where/How can I find * N-Gage games for my (input s60 phone here)? Yes your s60 phone can play N-Gage games. How and where? according to forum rules, I am not allow to tell. Sorry.

(4) How do I check firmware and IMEI on my N-Gage/QD? Press #0000# on the main screen for firmware, and #06# for IMEI.

(5) How do I change my operator logo for my N-Gage/QD? Download SeleQ or FExplorer from, access the image thru either of the apps and select "Set as Operator Logo". If that doesn't work, SMS yourself or download an older format logo (black and white), and then save that logo. After that, you should be able to change your operator logo thru SeleQ or FExplorer.

(6) How do I change my wallpaper on my N-Gage/QD? 1) Press the application key 2) Scroll to the "Tools" folder and open it 3) Scroll to "Settings" and open it 4) Select "Phone/Device" (whichever your phone may say) 5) Select "Standby Mode" 6) Select "Background Image" 7) Select "Yes" Select either "Phone Memory" or your MMC card depending on where the image is saved 9) Select the image 10) Go back to your main screen of the phone

How to connect your N-Gage to your PC

Step 1. Before you do anything. Place your MMC into your phone and format it.

Step 2. Place the N-Gage disc (that comes with the phone) into your cd rom.

If youve got XP: Connect your N-Gage to your pc with the USB cable. Leave windows to find all the necessary drivers automatically. Your MMC in your N-Gage will now be recognised as a removeable drive in 'My Computer'.

If you havent got XP: Do the same as above. If nothing happens, run the program on the N-Gage disc and install any drivers you find.

If any of the above does not work click Here

Step 3. Once the MMC is recognised by your PC, simply drag and drop any files you want onto the MMC (removeable drive).

Step 4. Download FExplorer from HERE and place the file on your MMC. Once on the MMC go to your menu then Tools --> Manager --> FExplorer --> Options --> Install

Follow all the on screen intructions. This has installed a file browser for you N-Gage. You can now access all the files on your N-Gage and MMC which 'Manager' can't see (like Java games).

    China phone - speaker volume correction?

    I would like to adjust maximum speaker volume as it is hard to hear some one when you are in a loud public place. Can someone sagest correct setting change for it (I assume you need to use engineer menu but would like to be sure and change correct settings)? Normal volume UP to max is not enough!
