NOKIA LUMIA 920 Tricks n Hacks n Tips


Tip 1 . Do u know how to use the edit button (abc or pencil button)?Heres how... in the inbox for example. u wanna delete multiple sms, simply hold the edit button, scroll down, and then, press c to delete the marked sms. The edit button can also b used to copy and past text in sms, simply hold it and scroll across, choose copy. pretty good for placing song names in


Tip 2 . Shit happens, on a smartphone, its inevitable u do something wrong, and tis calls for a format of fone. to format the fone, press *#7370#, then enter the lock code, which is the sec code of the fone. NOTE. batt must b full, else if format is disrupted by low batt, consequences will b disatrous I heard the code *#7780# works too, pretty much the same i tink.


for 6600 users, to format the fone, theres an alternative way. Press and hold <3>, <*>, and the buttons, then power on fone, keep holding on the 3 buttons, till u come to a format screen. tis method ONLY works on 6600, and need not enter the sec code. BUT sec code wun be reset to default 12345.


Tip 3 . TO NGAGE USERS; Did u know u can install .sis files simply using the cable given? Juz plug it in, place the .sis file anywhere on e: (the mmc), not in any folders, root of e., disconnect, then look for it in manager.


Tip 4 Save on battery and system memory being used by regulary checking the task manager which can be accessed by holding down the menu button
Tip 4a Set the screen saver to a short time out period to prolong battery life.
Tip 4b Avoid restarting the phone, or repeatedly turning it on and off. This helps increase battery life.


Tip 7. If you would like to avoid being "blue jacked", keep bluetooth turned off, or set your phone's visibility to hidden.



Tip 9. Save memory when installing apps, by installing over bluetooth. This can be done using the nokia phone suite and a bluetooth serial connection. Only works with .SIS files, so java still has to be sent to the phone, but will save space when using .SIS files.



Tip 10 Operator logosUse a filemanager like FExplorer or SeleQ to add the folders. "c./system/Apps/phone/oplogo". Add a .bmp picture to folder "oplogo" and restart your phone. The .bmp picture size needs to be. 97 x 25 pixels

Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR)

Enhanced Full Rate will give you much better sound quality when you enable it. The new Enhanced Full Rate CODEC adopted by GSM uses the ASELP (AlgebraicCode Excitation Linear Prediction) compression technology. This technology allows for much great voice quality in the same number of bits as the older Full Rate CODEC. The older technology was called LPC-RPE (Linear Prediction Coding with Regular Pulse Excitation). Both operate at 13 kilobits.(but you take up more space on the network, so they can charge you more)

*3370# and EFR will be activated after a reboot of the phone ( consumes more power )

#3370#
and EFR will be switched off after a reboot of the phone.

  1. Ability to travel without incurring roaming charges
If you are one who travels overseas quite often, then unlocking your phone can only benefit you. If you keep your Samsung Phone locked, that you are likely to incur whatever roaming charges your current cell phone network provider charges for overseas traveling. Now, with your unlocked Samsung Phone, you have the ease and ability to switch networks when your overseas, saving you bunches of money on roaming charges, and allowing you to get the best service and best deal in whatever country your traveling to.
