Bluetooth can be turned on/off by pressing the * key on some Eseries devices like the Nokia E66 and Nokia E71. Thanks to BTSwitch for FP2, turning on/off Bluetooth is now possible with one press of a button on FP2 devices too. This is good for those who wants to save some battery time or insecure with keeping BT on.
I was getting frustrated over the weekend because I couldn’t sync my phone calendar with Google Calendar and iCal. I didn’t know how important my calendar was until it stopped working. I’ve been doing this synchronization thanks to a free Goosync account reminding me with due dates or appointments. Lately I’ve been getting login failure. If you are also a free Goosync user, don’t worry it will be back up soon.
I know a couple of people who carry an extra battery in their wallet for their Nokia phones. They are really heavy users who tend to kill their phones earlier than the advertised battery life. Push email, while streaming music, while running GPS navigation, while running Sportstracker, while tweeting and recording live videos in between.
Its time to get out from behind your computer and interact with people in the real world. What better way to do that than to meet some of your fellow phone fanatics. January 23rd will be the next New York S60 Users meetup. We will be meeting at 6:30pm at the Nokia Flagship Store. Once there, we will likely be on the second floor.
You may recall that I recommended Mobbler on your Nokia phone so you can stream music depending on tags, keywords, or recommendations. However, you probably noticed that it struggles when you are multitasking. Steve Punter made some modifications to the official version that fixes that problem. You can download it now before the official version gets an update.
So you just got a new Nokia phone. We’ve got the first steps and recommendations for your new shiny toy, whether it is a gift from yourself or a loved one. If you’re a Nokia veteran, send a link to this post to the newbie on your holiday list.
The third New York Nokia/S60 meetup will be held on December 16th, 6:30PM at the New York flagship store. Talk about phones, have a few beers, and grab some food with other phone geeks from around NYC! William of S60 Users, the organizer of the event, tells us there will be live music, too.
Back in September, Nokia hosted a Evening with S60 at their NYC Flagship store. Many people from the S60 community turned off their computers and headed out to East 57th street. Good food, cool phones, and fun people. Afterward I thought, “We don’t need Nokia to tell us to hang out!” I put the call out on Howard Forums for a fan-run meet-up.
Last May, I wrote the first 10 applications I install on my S60 Nokia phones. Five months later, my list have gone through some changes. Have a look to see what dropped out and what got added. This list should help out the newcomers to S60.
