Are programs suitable for Symbian ^ 3? And in some tricky way it will be possible to install?

  • No, they do not fit, because in common with these systems only the appearance of the icons
  • No, and it’s unlikely that it will be possible, because it doesn't make much sense
  • programs written for Symbian ^ 3 using Qt, it’s easier for a developer to just port to N9

Rep: (125)
During the installation of the application, the message "Installing applications will change the components that other installed applications depend on."What is the matter? How to fix it?
  • the fact is that the application failed to install (this is possible for a bunch of different reasons)
    1. to fix this, go toApplication Management (Options>Applications>Application Management)
    2. in the list, find the package with the signature "the package is damaged"
    3. delete it



And also ... If the list does not contain a package with a signature "the package is damaged", open the terminal:

devel-su
apt-get install -f


May ask to remove some packages, carefully read and delve into(again for advanced users)what packages are before agreeing.

  3. find directory/home/user/.ring-tones if in the catalog / home / user no subdirectory .ring-tones , and the display of hidden files is turned on, so this directory needs to be created: cancel the copy operation that you started by clicking Cancel create folder (via menu item New folder ), and then start over by copying the file
  4. copy melodies from the clipboard to this directory (to do this, clickCopy here bottom of screen)


for filebox:
  1. in the settings you need to enable the display of hidden files (Show hidden files )
  2. find the melody of interest in the file manager (/ home / user / MyDocs / a directory with a melody, a long tap on the file name, in the menu that appears, select "Copy" ( Copy ) You can repeat this action on other files that you want to hide from the player (second button at the bottom left), they will all appear in the clipboard)
  3. find directory/home/user/.ring-tones if in the catalog / home / user no subdirectory .ring-tones , and hidden files are turned on, so this directory needs to be created
  4. copy the melodies from the clipboard to this directory (click on the clipboard button (bottom second on the left), and in the window that appears, select all the files that you want to copy and click the second button on the left again, wait until the file manager indicates that the copy operation has been completed)

After these steps, delete the original files (so that the player does not see them). The copied ringtones will be visible in the general list of system sounds when you select a ringtone, SMS, alarm clock and so on.

Rep: (125)
Can I use the N9 as a Wi-Fi access point?

Yes you can, this is the standard functionality of the device.



Rep: (125)
He turned off the phone, having decided to restart (for some reason), he turned off and does not turn on any more and does not react to anything at all. What to do?

  • wait (I think it’s pointless for more than an hour)
  • the fact is that when you turn off the N9, although it turns off the screen, it actually can still work, performing some kind of internal manipulation without giving any signs of life (especially if any process or application in your opinion freezes, although it just went without saying you about it)
  • if the previous items did not help, carry to the service center

How to sync contacts with google account?
  • make a backup copy of your contacts (save to a file, synchronize with an online service or program on your computer)
  • go to all configured accounts in mode"Offline"
  • delete all calendar events and contacts
  • set up an account in accountsExchange Mail
    Mailbox: specify your mailbox on Gmail
    Username: specify the same as in the "Mailbox"
    Domain: leave blank
    Server: m.google.com
    Port: 443

  • After creating an account - log in "Inf. about the last sync . "and click" Synchronize ", wait (usually no more than a minute) - we will see how the numbers of received contacts appear in clear

For firmware PR1.2 and less
  • turn on synchronizationONLY calendar
  • click "Save" and wait for synchronization
  • after synchronization, go to the configured account and turn on contact synchronization
  • click "Save" and wait for synchronization



Attention! There are currently issues with syncing Google contacts through Exchange.
This is caused by the gradual closure of Sync Services by Google itself.

Currently, all new (newly established) accounts are not synchronized, and synchronization on all new devices (recently purchased or never previously synchronized with Google) does not work.

So what to do now?
Everything is simple .. You just need to transfer your contacts from Google service to Hotmeil Service and store them there ...
1) From a PC, go to your Google account via WEB interface
2) MakeExport Contacts format select MS outlook
3) Create (register) a new HotMail.com account from a PC
4) MakeImport Contacts from the received file in paragraph 2
5) Set up Exchange synchronization with HotMail (FAQ on NOKIA N9 (Post # 19904903) )

How to enable developer mode? Why should I include it if I am not a developer?
  • go to Options>Security>Developer Mode>move the switch
  • connect the Internet connection and wait until N9 installs the necessary packages
  • reboot N9
  • it is sometimes necessary because some programs (especially their earlier and betta versions) require packages installed when you turn on developer mode
