Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

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.

    Hi Shriraj,
    If the above options didn’t work, there’s no use pushing to use an app that doesn’t work on your phone as it may cause future troubles due to non-updated codes in it. I’d suggest getting a similar app that has a working certificate instead to avoid any problems that may occur in the near future.
