Two batteries are better than one :-)

I recently took delivery of a “High Capacity Extended Battery 1800 mAh” For Nokia N95. It increases the life of the Symbian smart phone by a third on standby. Without battery intensive applications running I can get approximately 3 days light use of the phone.

In conjunction with the original Nokia Battery BL-5F you have improved battery life.

In no circumstances do I have any affiliation with any products. I only highly recommend them as they are superb. Please only consider the “High Capacity Extended Battery” at your own discretion as this is not an official Nokia product.

"How can we rectify the N95 low battery?"

Answer: Bye using the “Nokia USB Sync and Charge Cradle”. This in my opinion with the secondary battery is the secret behind rectifying the N95 low battery life.

This allows you to effortlessly synchronize and charge your Nokia N95 with every USB-enabled computer. Mostly all modem computers have USB ports. With this device on your office desk, there is no need to search and plug in the right cable. Just dock the Nokia N95 into the cradle and you are ready to charge and transfer files.

The N95 Cradle can be powered via USB connection or with an included AC charger. You have the ability to charge the phone and a spare battery at the same time.

Here's one error I fixed earlier...

You can try inserting a piece of paper to make an improved connection with the sim card and phone.

( Tip: Use the flap of a self seal jiffy bag )

"C2Doom is the very best in mobile gaming experience"

The original Doom is a 1993 iconic computer game by the video game development company id Software, and one of the most influential titles in the 21st century of the first-person shooter genre. Doom is most notable because of the combination of immersive 3D graphics with graphic violence. It turned out to be both controversial and immensely popular immortalizing the game for eternity. The film Doom was released in 2005.

The C2Doom is the very best in mobile gaming experience that brings original Doom gaming experience to smart phones typically S60 devices. It implements original game episodes, graphics and music and the infamous single player experience. The C2Doom also incorporates traditional multiplayer co-operative and deathmatch gaming modes.

-For this to work you will require a compatible S60 or S80 phone i.e. Nokia N95. Tested Mobile phones I have personally tested are Nokia models NGage, NGage QD, 6620, 9300, 9500, 7610, 6681, 6630, 6680, 6600 and 6260. Even so all S80 mobile phones and S60 Symbian phones that have a minimum requirement of 16MB internal RAM (Random Access Memory), Symbian S60 1.2 or Symbian S60 2 ought to work. (9210, 7650 and 3650 are not currently supported models.)

2- For this step you are required to download either depending on your phones requirements the S60 or S80 C2Doom installation package, from the internet and install it into your compatible mobile device. Following this you can now copy the installation files into your phone and select file from there, or use PC suite application for installing. After you have finished installing the Doom.sis file, a Doom application icon will appears in the phones applications folder.

3- You have to have WAD files. Wad Files are like game ROMs. There are several WAD files available, however I have tested only some official ones.

- Transfer the WAD file into your memory card by means of the data cable or your preferred connection method. When you start C2Doom application, it looks trough your phone memory and detects WAD files. Once one is located a confirmation is asked if that WAD file is indented to be used. It is always advised to copy files to a memory card not to internal phone memory. For instance N95 internal memory is only 160 MB storage but my micro SD card is 8GB. Good Luck! :-)

TV on your mobile -AKA BBC iPlayer for symbian s60 is AWESOME

BBC iPlayer is an application which is intended to let users download or stream live TV and radio programmes from website to their s60 mobile phone device. BBC iPlayer currently is only available in the UK. As I am aware there are two versions for S60v3 and S60v5 (e.g. Nokia 5800). The S60v3 version is a .sis (Symbian Installation Source) file, and not a .jar like the previous versions and works without any know problems on the N95, however they labeled it v. 1.00 for some unknown reason. This could be because the older 1.6 version was only officially available for the Nokia N96.

BBC iPlayer for Symbian S60. BBC iPlayer for S60 has been released for a short while now. You can stream shows over WiFi which is my preference but you have the option to stream over a strong 3G connection. For this to work you are required to have runtime enabled handset to use the BBC iPlayer. From my experience it works well on Nokia N78, N95, N96 and E90. I have tested all theses phones with a resounding success.

The iPlayer for S60 platform uses RealPlayer to stream the video via WiFi or 3G connection. As I mentioned I only use WiFi as this is completely free.

Once you begin iPlayer, you’ll see a selection of shows that are featured on the front page for quick selection. This is similar to the full version where you have most popular shows displayed. You have the option to browse for shows via channel or category; or search by program name.

Works exceptionally well with Nokia N78, N95, N96 and E90 — I prefer the Nokia N95.

I especially like the live TV stream works exceptional for watching “BBC News” and my favorite show “Dragons Den”. I now say I have TV on my mobile and so can you.
