You need either a credit or debit card to do that, or the card details of someone (like a friend or relative who will allow you)to make purchases.
fred, 03 Mar 2011hi mavrick, pls i want to know if i can download a payed games at ovi store without the credit... moreHi Fred,
As far as I know, you will be able to transact on ovi store using a prepaid/debit card. However, it also depends on your bank. Some banks dont allow debit transactions online without a special PIN/one time password that they usually send by sms to you when u conduct the transaction. I'd suggest you check with the bank if your card can be used online first, and if it is, there should be no problem. Another thing I'd suggest is not to link the card with your ovi account as its a debit card, just put in the details everytime you make a purchase. It may be more cumbersome, put its more secure. Good Luck.

The old rule of charging is to fully charge and let your battery drop to one to two bars left and then again fully charge, this is less important for new batteries but seems to work well for me. Be aware that your battery life will seem short the first few weeks you have the phone.. it will reach peak performance only after that. Charge your battery to full the first time you use it and dont leave the charger connected unnecessarily once the battery is fully charged.

john, 03 Mar 2011hi maverick just wanted to know your input about
the AMOLED issue with most c7 and n8 phones.... morebuddy i have the same prob with my phone..
i visited Nokia Care but they said they were not aware of it and said it was in every handset (including da piece they showed me) and), they said it was normal.
i then sent a complaint directly to Nokia India via email. In a weeks time i got a call from Nokia India, they told me to go to the same Nokia Care centre but this time they would have someone to personally look into the issue.
so i went to the centre, the manager of the centre himself came to look at the issue, he accepted that something was not right in the screen and said that he could try and change the display, which they did.
But the new display has the same color defect.
I guess all the Indian handsets have that defect. u'll have to live with it.

How is the GPS feature in this mobile? I live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Do I Need to download any street maps to this mobile from OVI store? Do I need to be on the GPRS while on navigation mode? Or does it works just like a typical GPS gadget namely Magellan or Garmin using the satellite signals. Need your help asap.
hi maverick just wanted to know your input about
the AMOLED issue with most c7 and n8 phones..
its where the dark gray colors tend to be purple.
is it a hardware defect? or can it be fixed with software update in the future? unfortunately, mine has it. I've had my c7 for almost 4 months and everything is ok aside from that issue.does your display show this kind of discoloration?you can check it if you set your clock to analog, lock your screen, then press the menu button..if half of the clock is purple, we have the same issue.please reply thanks.
I just got one C7 from a Nokia Qt Training session. It's seems to be a good phone: many features in a small package (it's about the same width and height than my G1 but 1/3 thinner). The camera is great. S^3 is very responsive.
I have yet to make a call with it and connect to the Internet.
