One of the most common mobile device features is to be able to dress it up to your liking. In this regard, themes come into play and make everything fit to your desires. For mobile consumers whose phones is of the Symbian S60 3rd edition OS, it is imperative to know some tips on how to tweak your device.

This time, deleting mobile themes on an S60 3rd edition phone can’t be any easier. While deleting themes on these devices can be as easy as going to the Application Manager options under the Installation menu, once you cannot find the installed themes under the App. Manager List, deleting themes would then have to be done manually on the phone’s memory card provided it is where the themes are installed.

Here’s a quick step on how to delete themes on your Symbian S60 3rd edition phone. Contrary to what other tutorials online say, I was able to delete the entire themes on my Nokia E71 simply by doing these steps:

1. Connect your mobile device to your PC in mass storage or by inserting the mini SD card reader.
2. Go to your phone’s root memory, find the Private Folder and make sure that you show Hidden folders in your PC.
3. Find the folder named 10207114. Contrary to other tutorials that you could find online, even if you’ll only delete a particular .skn file (which you could determine the theme by opening it using your Notepad), what will happen is that all themes installed on the phone will be deleted. That’s what happened on my end. Thus, it is advisable that you take note of the themes’ name that you’d want to retain before deleting anything.

This would be my second official blog post from my Nokia E71 since I installed the WordPress application for Symbian s60v3 phones.

Things were going fine and I’m happy with the way this app has been helping me out create a post from the comfort of my phone.

As promised from my last post, here’s one of those tricks that I have come to discover and tested.

Smartphone users who find themselves hooked into changing their phone’s themes once in a while often encounter problems with expired certificate error messages whenever a theme or an application is installed.

It can be frustrating at times when you can’t use them because of it. The are tricks on the internet talking about this that says the only way to get around this error is to change the date on your phone backwards which is not generally true for all Nokia phones or Symbian s60v3 and s60v5 models.

There’s a more effective way to do this and it requires following only a few simple steps.

Simply go to your phones Menu. Select “Installations”. Installations Folder

Look for the App. Manager then select “options”. Application Manager Folder

Choose “Software installation” and select “settings” App. Settings

and change from “signed only” to “All”. Software installation

I hope this helps and stay tuned for more mobile tricks and hacks written from my Nokia smartphone.

How Do You Show “Respect” On the Road?

Why do some people act like kids when they’re on the road? Is that because having an expensive car of some sort provides the license to be an arrogant driver?

Vast majority of accidents happening everyday are all attributed to vehicular accidents–either because of cell phone use while driving, intoxication or driving under the influence of drugs, and serious driving errors.

Road traffic casualties in the UK alone for January 2010 are already close to 200,000 with 2,000 resulting to death. It’s not just those inexperienced drivers that get involved most of the time, veteran drivers get themselves involved as well with most traffic violations because they believe that they know more and can get away with anything at any cost.

AXAIn this regard, efforts have been duly focused on keeping the road safe. While most countries all over the world are doing the same, in the UK, “ AXA Car Insurance” has been working closely with the authorities in keeping the red flags down and through its newest campaign entitled “ AXA Respect On The Road”, a more responsive citizenry is expected as they highlight the state of disrespectful or even worse, dangerous driving practices in the country.

They have even taken this campaign on to the streets of London in a black taxi which they have called the “Cab Cam” which gathers the opinions of the public about the issue through video commentaries. See sample video below about it.

They also went social with the creation of a Facebook fan page found via this link.

Having these kinds of efforts would not succeed without the help of a large citizenry, thus, most of the time; it serves as a reminder which these good guys hope that people wouldn’t have deaf ears at.

Discipline always comes from within. If you’re a driver and you’re reading this, complete this statement. “I respect the road by…?”

Keep your answer to yourself and watch the video below. Aren’t the kids cute? What if they’re adults’ acting like kids? Are they still good to see?
