Re: what's better gmail with Nokia messaging or the Gmail by default?

I use the default client (now) but with almost 20K messages I was having real issues with gmail. I "archived" all but the latest messages via email (last 20 or so), and now it works a charm. I can...

Any opinions on short-term data/phone plans in Norway?

I will be traveling abroad this summer and will be spending a good deal of time in Norway. Does anyone have a preferred user service for data/phone calls? A pay-as-you-go sim setup is fine with me....

Re: How can i be fierce like a runway model!

Re: How do you change the time?

Generally I try to move at the speed of light, or as close as I can... it seems to give me a few extra minutes relative to everyone else (everyone else just seems to be standing still). -T

Re: Pulse Audio battery drain (occationally)

Thanks for the bug link, although I have had this pulseaudio issue both after phone calls, and sometimes where there is no phone call involved at all. That, frankly is the one that troubles me more....

Pulse Audio battery drain (occationally)

From time to time I notice that Pulse Audio "sticks" and runs the battery down in a short afternoon. Top/HTop shows that it is pulse audio, and if I put my ear to the speakers I can hear a slight...

Re: N900 and the size of it !

I can say that compared to my E63, it is actually bigger in a better way. It feels really comfortable to talk on, and you can prop it with your shoulder without it wanting to take off, but on the...

Re: bizarre audio problem when making or receiving phone calls

Re: N900 partial disassembly and USB fix

I actually had a thread on this a month or so ago, but the chief holdup for me was that I would void the warranty in the event that some other issue were to pop up. Now, if this machine makes it...

Re: The N900 -- what do you hate about it?
