Vivaz seems to be good phone. I would like to buy. Is anyone can tell me compare to Nokia N97, which one will be better?
Dear friends who love Symbian OS,
I don't really have SE Vivaz but I'm a Symbian S60 V5 lover which makes us even here... After reading lots of comments here, I thought I better give you a list of applications (Must have applications) in your Vivaz (Symbian S60V5)
1) Google Maps (Just like Google earth on your PC)
2) Y-Browser (File manager software, but way better than the default one... You can go in to hidden system files too)
3) 360ting player (Good Music player)
4) Resco Photo Viewer (Photo browsing, Photo editing software like ACDSee in your PC)
5) Photo browser (Photo browsing software with a very cool 3D like interface)
6) Quickoffice (Can Open, edit Office documents like Word, excel & power point.. Even Microsoft Office 2007 files can be edited using the new version of quickoffice mobile.)
7) Adobe PDF reader
8) Paint pad (Picture drawing tool)
9) Opera mobile (Very good web browser)
10) Youtube (You can view even high quality youtube videos directly from this software without any problem.)
11) Fring (VOIP calls, Video chat via Skype, Facebook, yahoo messenger, google talk etc chatting...)
12) Bright light (Use your mobile as a torch)
13) PhoNetinfo (Gives the System information of your mobile)
14) Kaspersky Anti Virus (Protect your mobile from virus, Spams etc.. Block unwanted calls, firewall also available)
15) JbakTaskman (Very good task manager like software)
16) RAMBlow (Memory cleanup tool)
17) Free i-SMS (Threaded SMS view just like in Apple i-phone)
18) SymSMB (You can connect to any network via Wifi and you can share a folder in your mobile as well..)
19) VMenu (Menu view just like in Apple i-Phone with kinetic scrolling..)
20) Flipfont (Changes the fonts)
21) Widgetizer (Widgets and more shortcuts on home screen)
22) NetQin Anti Virus and Mobile Guard (Network Firewall, Startup control etc)
23) TTPod (Great Music Player)
24) MSDict 7 (Full Oxford Dictionary)
25) Threaded SMS (SMS like iphone)
26) Ultimate Voice Recorder (Records phone calls without beep)
27) SPB Mobile shell (Brings the Android or Windows mobile interface)
There are many many more... I just named MUST have applications... There are no games in above list... You can have hundreds of nice games and funny applications apart from above list...
You should sign above applications before installing... (You can use 'Free Signer' applications for that..) Or else you must have a hacked phone... (I don't know whether SE Vivaz can be hacked or not.. You have to google for more information)
You can download almost all the above applications from www.dotsis.com (Of course cracked versions...)
I'm actually using Nokia 5530 Xpress Music which has the same OS as this... and I have all the above applications installed in my beauty... So I can say with confidence... Symbian ROCKS...!
Can anyone help...
My girlfriend got me some Sennheiser MM50 headphones, the pack said they are iPhone compatable but I own the Vivaz... I tried them as they have the same jack but they fail, I tested them with my PSP and they work great with that, I then tried it in my girfriends HTC HD2 and they worked 100%.
My vivaz comes up with the option to select headset or TV out when I plug the headset in but after selecting the headset option I get nothing through the headphones for music or calls. (TV out just gives me white noise with teh music as background)
Are they non compatable or have I missed something obvious? if I can't get the things working I will just use them with the PSP or give them back to my girlfriend as they seem to work fine for her...
Thanks in advance for any help offered :)
Thanks for your reply.
Update: Downloaded, and installed the latest software (22/07/10) and problem has been solved. Music player option has been restored, phone's running alot smoother and a few new apps have been added.

did you try to restart your phone?
if not please do it, then check out if it's ok.
if not then switch your phone off, remove the memory card then switch it on without and with memory card.
if those doesn't seem to solve the problem wait for atleast 2 days while monitoring your phone.
try to restart it again if nothing happened go get an mc reader and format your mc..
your last choice is to go to the se care center..
Zar, 16 Sep 2010hey if it isn't symbian s60v5 can that application still be used on other versions of symbian ?there are times but it's very few.
there are apps for s60v5 that reported running smoothly on e series and n series phones..
apis, 16 Sep 2010hello there
i just want to ask about his batt performance...
with about 3 hours per day on... moredear Apis,
battery performance is good. it can run up to 2-3 days with regular use.. not abUSE.

yes its the same os.
camera and video is superb. sound quality is good though not the best. but it has a 3.5 audio cable port, so you can always makeuse of your favorite headset

just like in i-phone, samsung and yahoo messenger. you can see his and your message and browse over it easily
it's a beautiful application.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2010Hi,
does this phone supports USB charging?
does it play the 'whole song' assigned as message... moreHi there Anonymous,
yes Vivaz supports USB charging
im just not sure if it plays the whole song. in my other SE phone it doesnt. just havent tried it in vivaz yet.
Zar, 15 Sep 2010hey gillian , nice seeing someone so kind giving opinions and suggestion to confused people li... morehi there Zar,
thank you. it's great to know that my doings are appreaciated..
yes that's so possible.
only if you install a 3rd party application.
there are different apps that has the ability to hide your files (for example private photos, videos such as porn). :D.
One of which is the 'file lock' as our friend Fatos have mentioned.
(be sure to read the comments before you install the appslication, for you to be sure that it is safe to install)
i believe our friend Fatos has already provided the link where to get Media Safe application.
to be honest, i havent tried an android phone so i cant be particular in answering this question. but as far as i know yes android has more application already preloaded to the phone. but with symbian we can also achieve such apps thru 3rd party apps
yes, there are several apps that need a huge amt of RAm to run smoothly, same thing when running several applications in the back ground. this slows your phone's performance. it causes lags as well or worst when you dont have enough Ram to run an application it sometimes restarts.
one good solution is to monitor your ram usage. close an application when not in use and dont forget to restart your phone at least once in two weeks.
vivaz is a very good phone. that's one good reason to take good care of it.
very welcome. feel free to ask alright. we're here to help.
and if you discover something share it with us.. because it would help somebody else..
Played a song on my Vivaz last night. Didnt switch the phone off, but left it beside my bed. This morning when I tried to listen to music on my way to work I noticed that the music option in the media player is gone. Only photos and videos options are still there. I've checked the file manager and all the music files are still on my memory card.
So, has anyone else experienced this problem and how do I fix it? While a simple software upgrade do the trick?

How to ger cer. and key for our phone...
Plz help guys........
My friend Gillian thank you for those words,I really appreciate those nice words for me,Im tryin to do my best even that Symbian World is bigger hahahha...
1.about your first question,No its not necessary to sign all apps or games,because some apps are already signed weither by the company who has launch it or by other persons,but some files as you said they need to be sign
2. abot second and third question I see they are connected....My friend I personally use this Symbian sis signer and its very good,you can find here and download it http://www.mobilesbuddy.com/mobile-software/nokia-s60v5-software/symbian-sis-signer-software/
But remember befor using sis signer you must have certificate and key for your phone,whithout those you cant sign sis files,If you have it good,and if you dont i will guide you how to get it.
3. and fourth question,the best way to find cool apps and games is google,you can find HD games for you phone,and check youtube its very useful
And thank you again Gillian,and you are so useful in GsmArena,I can see it....
U can reads how to handles?, how to hack?, how to mod?, how to setting? , how to ...? Etc etc ...On the net.
