Re: Any way to hack around Fido?

Hi there HellFlyer. I chose Fido several years ago because they had towers in my area and they offered my wife and me a "couples" package that was much more affordable and better suited to our needs...

Re: Any way to hack around Fido?

So, is it possible to trick the N900 browser into reporting the IMEI from my other phone?

Any way to hack around Fido?

I'm using Fido in Canada. They just gave me a one-month free unlimited web browsing upgrade, which works great on my Fido-locked Sony Ericsson T715 phone's browser.

But when I move the SIM card to...

Smile Re: Are you happy with N900? I have nothing but problems!

Hi there. I'm using my N900 on Fido and I can empathize with you. However, I don't think I'm experiencing the WiFi issue and I do have the latest firmware. What I have found is this...some public...

Re: Getting Ovi Suite to find the N900 via Bluetooth?

Let me add that the yellow "alert" icons are due to missing drivers.

Getting Ovi Suite to find the N900 via Bluetooth?

Since my N900 suffers from a disconnected USB port, I need to use Bluetooth for connectivity. I have updated the firmware to PR 1.3 and my hope is to use the new Ovi Suite support to sync the N900...

Re: N900-PC suite outlook sync stopped working correctly

You're not alone, this also happened to me several months ago. At some point, PC Suite stops syncing new Outlook data to the N900. I always suspected it had to do with either (a) the amount of...

Re: Problems with N900 USB port becoming broken / loose and resulting warranty & repair issues

Are you amazed that Nokia Canada won't support the phone or that I let them fob me off with that? :-) As to the former, it's pretty much understandable. This model is not subsidized by any Canadian...

Re: Problems with N900 USB port becoming broken / loose and resulting warranty & repair issues

My N900 dropped while the charger was connected and it wrenched the USB connector inside the phone. I'm in Canada and Nokia Canada said they don't / can't support the phone. Nokia USA would service...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

Interesting...I too got my N900 to replace my dead Palm Pilot (and an intervening series of bad cell phones with so-called PDA / media features). As an Outlook user, I'm dependent on Nokia PC Suite,...

Re: N900 + SE A2DP Bluetooth stereo headset

Re: [Under consideration] Day picker could be replaced by a true date picker with calendar view

Agreed.

Is it possible for Nokia to provide just a hook so that the community can provide alternative date / time pickers. Then users can install what works best for them.

Re: Poll - do you want voice dialing on the N900

Hmmm, I'm surprised no one is working on an S60 (or E71) emulator for Maemo. :) I have never used these phones, but from what folks are saying, it seems like they kinda had these features nailed...

Re: Announcement: Countdown Timer

In my studio, I use a lot of countdown timers. Right now I'm using ToastTimer (source forge) inside the Garnet (PalmOS) VM. I'll give yours a go.

Re: How about... an Eseries tablet?

OK, reviving a 2 year old post was accidental. But "spraying" about the PIM features? That's a bit harsh--it was only two posts. Besides, shouldn't we all be able to express what works, doesn't work,...

Re: [sandbox] Boost battery output

There are 3rd party inductive charging solutions that I assume would work with the N900. It requires sticking a doohickey on the back. Then you just lay the phone on a pad and it charges.

Oh, and when Nokia sends out a replacement battery cover, perhaps they can include an extended-life battery too? :-)

Folks, I think my point was this...no matter what you do to optimize the software, a bigger battery will always give you more run time. I realize this is a Maemo forum, but I'm looking for some...

Folks, after my initial euphoria when Nokia PC Suite pushed 3000 contacts from Outlook 2007 to my N900, I have come to be very disappointed and frustrated with the built-in PIM/PDA/Phone package....
