Nokia cancelled support for Symbian (in January, even though they promised support until 2016) and only Nokia partners can update old apps. No more new apps from partners or independent developers. Foursquare had an update, and maybe some others will get updates, but Line doesn't exist for Symbian and never will. I don't use any messengers, but anyway, we can use what we have and hope that it doesn't stop working. Or, if it stops, that someone fixes it, officially or not.

Filling of c: drive in N8 is too common. & to overcome this thing, there is an app named 'mobile cleaner'. It is really good app for freeing up ur phone memory to give u healthy amount of ram. I myself use it every time & get enough ram. Below i am providing u the link from which u can download mobile cleaner, but before installing it, its necessary to hack ur phone with nortan. I am providing the link for it too. This Will surely help u to solve the issue of phone memory.

Sony Ericsson had a few too, Satio and Vivaz, and some early ones. Siemens had a Symbian phone too, SX1 (very old). But only Nokia had good support and success with their Symbian. Sorry, I didn't mean to tease you and I hope you're not offended. I know you're commenting on this page very often.

It's a great feature and thanks for pointing it out - I just made a folder where I stored some messages that I have to keep but I don't want them in my way. Excellent!

And no, Nokia X can't use Google services or Google Play. Only all other stores. It's a cheap phone for people who want to be free from Google, and your Note II is much more powerful than Nokia XL so you probably don't need it. We'll have to wait until it's released and reviewed to see what it can do.

I liked the specifications of lumia 1520 except the following features :
> Windows phone
> Non removable battery
> No JAVA support.

Such a feature is not available in all android phones. I am using N8 as my primary phone. In my secondary phone Samsung N7100, I have installed an purchased app called EASY SMS (previously PANSI SMS) which has folders in the app like the 'My folders' in the Symbian phones.

Now understood?.

Is it possible to visit http://play.google.com to purchase apps and install in Nokia's android phones?. No comments about other stores as I have only used play store for my secondary phone samsung N7100.

Do you know that Samsung manufactured one and only Symbian phone I8910 omnia HD?. But Nokia Symbian phones are well known for longer battery backup time. Do not say that I am samsung fan. Read what I am posting in N7100 area.

Google is one of the top 5 most powerful companies in the world, they rule the internet and they have a monopoly. Not Nokia. Nokia is a nobody right now. Google blocks Nokia X from Play Store. Why? Because it's "open source" Android and not "Google" Android. If you want a phone to access Google Play, you have to accept Google tracking you, Google stealing your personal data, Google selling your data to advertisers, Google serving advertisements to you and Google giving your data to the NSA. That's psycho monopoly.
You can get apps for Nokia X from Nokia Store, Opera Store, Yandex Store, GetJar, Amazon and 15 (or more) other stores. All of them are fighting Google's monopoly. If you have a Google Play account you can probably download apps manually. You can get an app from anywhere and manually install it.
I don't know about folder messaging, but if you get a "real" Android you can ask Americans to sort your messages in folders and send them to you. They will already have them. :-)
I hate Nokia for what they did to Symbian and MeeGo, but they are not the bad guy here.

Looks like nokia is planning to change the coding of all android apps so that users get diverted to nokia store instead of google playstore. Sick. No company does this phycho type of monopoly. Damn it.

One doubt, is it possible to manually visit google play store website and install the apps?.

Will it have folder messaging (like my folders in N8 and other Symbian phones)?.
