Tip 10: Operator logos
Use a filemanager like FExplorer or SeleQ to add the
folders: "c:/system/Apps/phone/oplogo". Add a .bmp picture

Tip 12: BlueJacking
First up, you need to know what Bluetooth is. There are
lots of types of modern devices that incorporate Bluetooth
as one of their many features. PDAs, mobile phones and
laptops are a few of these modern devices. Bluetooth means
that Bluetooth enabled devices can send things like
phonebook/address book contacts, pictures & notes to other
Bluetooth enabled devices wirelessly over a range of about
10 metres. So, we've got past the boring part. Now, using
a phone with Bluetooth, you can create a phonebook contact
and write a message, eg. 'Hello, you've been bluejacked',
in the 'Name' field. Then you can search for other phones
with Bluetooth and send that phonebook contact to them. On
their phone, a message will popup saying "'Hello, you've
been bluejacked' has just been received by Bluetooth" or
something along those lines. For most 'victims' they will
have no idea as to how the message appeared on their
Tip 13: While you are viewing a picture in your phone's
gallery, press one of these shortcut keys (definitely
works on 6600, not sure about other symbians)

* - toggle on/off of full screen
5 - zoom in

#16: A soft and Hard reset
A Soft-reset - the process of resetting all the settings
of the phone to the factory default! No applications are
deleted! A Hard-reset is like formatting a drive! It does
format the memory. Everything that has been installed
after the first use of the phone is deleted! It will
recover the memory of the phone to the state you purchased
it! It is done by inputing the following code: *#7370#
NOTE: The battery must be full or the charger has to be
connected to the phone so that it does not run out of
power and make the phone unusable.

How to free more RAM on your phone >>>
>>> Method 1: Flight mode:
Put your phone in "Flight mode" with Psiloc System Tools.
Install System Tools, open it and select "Flight mode".
This way you can restart the phone without your SIM card
so there will be no running phone tasks in the background.
Now you can have up to 3,5 MB of free RAM!
Note: ironically enough, Flight mode doesn't work when
Smart Launcher is installed, at least in my case.
But i've also heard several reports of people who have
both apps running without any problems.
>>> Method 2: Smart Launcher trick:
Install Smart Launcher and open it. Go to Options,
Settings and put Launcher ON.
Now plug in your charger and switch off your phone. Wait
untill the battery meter appears and short press the Menu
button (don't hold).
The menu should appear and now you can have 3,5 to 4,5 MB
free RAM! (Hold Menu button to check RAM).
The trick is that with the charger plugged in, the phone
must get a minimum software support for charging, even
the phone is switched off. And somehow Smart Launcher has
still got it's shortcut running and that's the Menu
button. So when
you press the Menu button, you go directly to the Menu
without any other phone tasks running in the background so
you trick the phone and you have more free RAM!
Note: when you unplug the charger, the phone will switch
