    I WiLL BE SHOWING YOU sYmbIAN trIckSAND tIPS iN DIS THREAD. Tip 1 : Do u know how touse the edit button (abc orpencil button)?Heres how… in the inboxfor example; u wannadelete multiple sms, simply hold the editbutton, scroll down, andthen, press c to delete themarked sms. The editbutton can also b used tocopy and past text in sms, simply hold it and scrollacross, choose copy.pretty good for placingsong names in ngagesTip 2 : s%*t happens, on asmartphone, its inevitable u do something wrong,and this calls for a formatof fone. to format thefone, press *#7370#,then enter the lock code,which is the sec code of the fone.NOTE : batt mustb full, else if format isdisrupted by low batt,consequences will bdisatrousI heard the code *#7780# works too, pretty muchthe same i tink.for 6600 users, to formatthe fone, theres analternative way. Press andhold <3>, < *>, and the buttons, then power onfone, keep holding on the3 buttons, till u come to aformat screen. tis methodONLY works on 6600,and need not enter the sec code. BUT sec code wunbe reset to default 12345.There are two kinds offormatting: hardformatting and softformatting

    SOFT formatting: Thisdoes not realy formatyour phone (c-drive). Itrestores ini files from rombut preserves user data (photos, 3rd party appsetc). This is just a normalreset!!HOW? There are twoways to do a normalreset: 1) *#7780# (this seems towork only on S60 v6.1and 7.0)2) Go to Settings, Generaland scroll down tofactorysettings (works on all S60 phones)

    HARD formatting: Thisreformats completely theC-drive. All applicationsand files stored on this drive will be lost and cleanbut default files will berewritten. This is a deepreset.HOW? Again there aretwo ways: 1) *#7370#2) When unable to startupyour phone: press andhold the green (talk) keyon the left + number 3 onthe keypad + the * key and then turn the phoneon. This trick works onevery S60 v7.0 and itworks fine on my 6630too but withoutformatting screen… Tip 3 : TO NGAGE USERS;Did u know u caninstall .sis files simplyusing the cable given? Juzplug it in, place the .sis fileanywhere on e: (the mmc), not in any folders,root of e:, disconnect,then look for it inmanager.Tip 4: Save on batteryand system memory being used by regularychecking the taskmanager which can beaccessed by holdingdown the menu button!!Tip 5: Type *#06# to display your IMEI s#ri4lnumber, very valuable forthe unlocking your phoneto other sim cards…Tip 6: Save memorywhen installing apps, by installing over bluetooth.This can be done usingthe nokia phone suite anda bluetooth s#ri4lconnection. Only workswith .SIS files, so java still has to be sent to thephone, but will save spacewhen using .SIS files.
