Tips and Tricks for Nokia E70
Here is a couple of things I find useful when playin with Nokia E70 phone. You can also find some useful applications collected on this page.
Most of the information collected on this page was picked up in various forums on the web. I decided to collect it on one place so that I can access it easily next time I have to reset my phone :-). Welcome to the wonderful world of smart phones.
Unfortunately the OS in the phone is not very stable and you can get into state where something does not work as it should and you do not know why. The best way out of such situations is reset to factory defaults.
You might want to consider backing up the phone memory to the mini SD card before you reset it. This will preserve all your data and contacts. To backup the memory go to:
Don't forget to remove the memory card before you reset the phone
Download and install iptel.org CA certificate. That way you can access all iptel.org servers using HTTPS without warnings.
Instant MessagingYou can use IM+ as Jabber/ICQ/AIM/MSN client. This is a trial version, you need to register it if you plan to use it.
Make sure you have bluetooth, bluez-pin, and bluez-utils Debian packages installed and that your bluetooth interface is working in Linux.
To test whether you can reach your phone you can use:
l2ping 00:a2:d1:a2:dd:66(use the real mac address of your phone. You can find out mac address of your phone if you type *#2820# on the phone.
Use obexftp tool to transfer files between your phone and computer:
obexftp -b 00:12:d1:a2:dd:66 -p <file>
Configuring SIP User Agent for iptel.org
Go to: Tools->Settings->Connection->Access points and enter AP info (WiFI or GPRS). You can configure a group of equivalent APs, but you will not be able to use that from the SIP profile , unfortunately.
Create a sip profile in SIP settings.
Create a new profile in Internet Telephone settings.
You should see two icons in the status bar (near the battery indicator), one consisting of 4 small squares (representing the WiFi AP connection) and second one showing handset and the globe (in the small version it looks like GE logo). The most important settings are security (NO) and service profile (IETF). If you set security to on then it sends Require: sec-agree and does not accept digest authentication.
There is a small application that can lock the keyboard of the phone after some period of time. Homepage of the application is: http://fuse.stc.cx/autolock You can install it in your phone from http://iptel.org/jan/nokia/autolock-1.0.sisx
The software for doing firmware updates on your own can be downloaded here: http://www.nokia.co.uk/softwareupdate
Unfortunately this works only under Windows, you need the USB cable for it and it deletes everything on or from your phone (so make a backup first).
