For the old Nokia's sake, we have to stop the new Nokia

The entire reason for Nokia and other manufacturers (including Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson etc) founding Symbian over ten years ago was to stop Windows dominating mobile computing. They shared...

Re: Nokia - Microsoft partnership (merged threads)

Proposal: a Manufacturers and/or Nokia forum

There are a number of posts in "General" which really have nothing to do with Maemo, they're really about various manufacturers' market share.

Could there be a separate forum for these kinds of...

Oh wait, I think I know what you might have done... scroll Conversations to the top of the screen if you've scrolled it down at all.

The buttons are at the top, above the most recently-updated...

Re: I would like to donate my $10 to the red cross by sms, but how?

There is a "New SMS" button at the top of the screen in Conversations, next to the "New IM" button.

It's not in the menu, it's at the top of the screen.

I'm not really sure how you could miss...

Re: Application Manger - Slow as the dogs!

It's probably nothing to do with the manager or N900 themselves.

If you change the servers in the app manager to non-Nokia ones the manager runs at full speed. That means the problem probably...

Re: Unfortunately the wait was not worth it in my view

You don't even need to do that. You can start typing on the desktop and it will automatically open the contacts list at that letter.

Re: Constructive Criticism: what is is and what it ain't...

Some criticism is valuable, but some of it isn't.

Re: Constructive Criticism: what is is and what it ain't...

No, it's not the best forum for venting.

If people want to vent about their N900, the best way they can do this is by phoning Nokia or posting on Nokia.com. That kind of feedback goes directly to...

You said Peugeot forum. Peugeot is a manufacturer.

Maemo.org is not a Nokia forum.

Re: Constructive Criticism: what is is and what it ain't...

Re: Missing emulators will be back at maemo.org

The number of downloads is only for Extras. Extras is disabled by default on most versions of the firmware, so most N900 users don't know about it and cannot access it by default.

That's why I did...
