AnonD-3102, 07 Mar 2011Dear Maverick and all other friends,
A GOOD NEWS!!!
Check the 'N8' discussion board now.
T... moreThanks Ajith, but as far as i know, lightctrl was an app for symbian OS 9.1 onwards which allowed you to automatically control or turn up screen brightness..or atleast thats what i remember. I dont think it will do anything extra here other that turn up screen brightness. The AMOLED is issue is either due to the inherent nature of the screen itself or a calibration/driver issue..this fix is likely to be only cosmetic.
In any case, on my device the reddish tint disappears on above medium brightness levels anyway so if someone with a really severe purple issue could give some feedback on this it would be helpful. BTW to everyone..if u are going to download the app and install it do it from a trusted source and be careful of malware. Cheers.
just got my c7 today, just have a question, why installing ovi store application taking so long? been installing it for an hour still not finish....

Eng.AKA, 07 Mar 2011How do i set the remote wipe on my C7 ???Oops, I meant remote lock which you can find in settings under phone management and security settings..though my C7 came with F-secure anti-theft installed which has remote location and remote wipe enabled..not sure if that is default in all regions though..if you have F secure on ur phone you should have the anti-theft sevice..it also contains an anti virus and firewall but that requires you to buy the license for the components.
Which brings me to another issue..does anyone have any experience with virus/anti virus on the symbian 1 and 3 phones? I've come across viruses like Cabir on my old 6630 but never on my N82..anyone experience any viruses on symbian 1 phones?

Then njoy the conference call....
Its great experience with nokia C7, it has got the fantabulous look and gread touch screen mobile experience. looks and all other features are uncomparable as on date for me from the phones that i have used as on date.
Hi all, i just got a nokia c7. Is it capable of conferencing calls? i was trying to do a conference call (which I'm able to do wit my old N2700 phone) but I cant seem to find the right option.
AnonD-3171, 07 Mar 2011u said let that mobile explode...i pick the another and that was same prb and nokia care take ... moreHi, Your phone must have had an issue or some app running in the background sucking up power and causing it to heat..I havent faced that problem when multitasking or watching videos or web browsing which are all high cpu users,although it is normal for the phone to get slightly warm during charging. I love my N900 on cold winter days when I'm doing some experimenting with it cos it warms my hands up well. ;)
Anyway, if Ace or the Wave II are your options, I'd take the Wave II..the Ace is an android on crutches.
siju, 07 Mar 2011Is any password application for this set?can tell any one please?Two things you can do for "passwording" your phone thats built in : one is the lock code that you can set which is by default 12345, look for that in security settings, and two, you can password protect your memory card..by doing this you can still read all the contents on your phone, but if you remove it and put it in a card reader on ur pc or into another phone, it will prompt for password.
Those are the default options..there are dozens of other security software depending on what you want to protect like : Advanced device locks, Smartguard, Best Crypto, Best Safe, Handy Safe and Best private conversations, just to name a few. Have a look at them (google them), most of those are paid however but they are useful and very customizable.
Oh and if you're really paranoid about losing your phone and someone looking at your private stuff, set remote wipe on in your phone, where you can wipe out all info on the phone with a remote sms. That way the thief loses all info on the phone and so do you. :)
Herry, 07 Mar 2011I love Nokia. I love Symbian. I love the N8. But this phone will be my last Nokia phone. As No... moreI'm inclined to agree with you. I think the C7,N8,C6-01 and symbian^3 are the last great things out of Nokia,and the C7, which I do like may be my last Nokia phone. Admittedly, even though I mainly bought it for its free sat nav and will probably use it to replace my wife's phone after a few months, I am quite fond of it. I'll be keeping a watch on Nokia's moves over the next year or so, but I fear that unless they have something major to pull out of the bag, the C7 may be the last Nokia I've had the pleasure of owning (and I've had a few), but I probably will be jumping on the android bandwagon once I've had a look at Icecream :)
AnonD-542, 07 Mar 2011Hey Maverick, a question about the USB OTG. Have you tried connecting it with any card reader.... moreI've tried that but unfortunately didnt work for me on the C7. I assumed its cos of not enough power being supplied to the reader although I'm not sure why. I had a mini imation USB to microSD reader which I seem to have lost but I'm hoping atleast that will work if i can find it.Will keep you updated on that. I can confirm that it works with my N82 when both phones are powered on..the memory card of the N82 showed up on the C7 and the N82 popped up a msg about connectivity which i selected mass storage to and there it was. :)
