Bluetooth file transfer in windows Vista is really easy but in XP its only implicitly available

Goto command prompt and then type:

Recently I had a strange problem with my phone. I am unable to transfer data to phone, especially videos. It said, “SECTOR NOT FOUND….” error and cancelled the transfer.

SOLUTION:
1. Connect your phone in data transfer mode (LIKE PENDRIVE). Dont use PCSUITE software to connect it. In otherwords, switch OFF your phone and connect it.

2. After its connected, open DISK DEFRAGMENTER from tools in accessories menu and defragment your phone’s memory card / phone memory

3. It will take hours to defragment. So its advisable to do it in the night.

4. After its completed, now try transfer data into your phone. It will surely get transferred.

I have tried this with my Sony Ericsson K550i which is having 2GB memory card.

Looking for a good video converter software ?

Nokia Vs SE is really a hot topic. Lets see each’s pros and cons.

Nokia:

nokia
Pros:
1. Having a long lineup of Smart phones.
2. Smartphones available for cheaper rates.
3. Overall, Nokia excels in all dimension (read: Camera, music, OS..)
4. Smartphones supports Application compatibility (both java and native symbian apps)
5. In an average, Nokia offers excellent displays which are larger and are legible under direct sunlight. screen resolutions are now increased tremendously from the traditional 176 x 208 even for their budget phones.
6. Network Connectivity is just great in nokia. In a scarce network area, if the SE shows no network signals, Nokia can show 1 or 2 signal points.
7. Data transfer speed is just great in any Nokia phone. Its simply outperfoms all the phones.

cons:
1. Value for money proportion is available only in its old age phones.
2. New phones are priced steep high.
3. Value for money in their phone is very less.
4. Nokia uses Symbian OS and its no way close to Windows OS.
5. ZERO ‘0’ customization is possible.
6. Symbian OS applications are childish and are mostly “No” for professional use.
7. Nokia Smartphones are prone to Restart, Virus attacks (Symbian), Hangs etc. like any other Smartphones.
8. Use the Symbian phone for a while and browse some pictures..later the phone will display “MEMORY FULL” close some applications. This is a Most Common irritating message on a Smartphone. Those NOKIA FOOLS (Engineers) dont add more RAM to their phones and thats whay this problem.
9. Nokia SUCKS if you buy a touch screen Nokia phone (currently). Still Nokia has to learn a lot more things in the touch screen arena. The recent touch screen XpressMusic phone from Nokia is the best example.

Sony Ericsson

se-w395-2
Pros:
1. SE may appear traditional (same icons used of many years only recently they have changed..) but the level of customization is VERY VERY HIGH.
2. SE is for GEEKS. You can change the Phones functionality (elfs), Camera driver, sound driver, interface, icons, layouts and much more.
3. Normally a low priced SE phone can outperform in its UI speed. Phone speed is high compared to Nokia.
4. Music – walkman, Camera – Cybershot are the SE rock pillars.
5. MACRO mode in the Camera is exclusively available in SE not in Nokia. Nokia only offers AutoFocus. MACRO mode enables to capture closest shot such as a Flower or a text with more detail.
6. You can install Java apps in SE (today most of the phones supports java not just SE)

Cons:
1. Smartphones are very less in SE stables- but who cares ?
2. You have to Compromise between Walkman / Cybershot but recently SE changed this, offering all features on both phones.
3. Some functions such as “Notes” in SE offers only limited storage space. For example you cant store more than ~25 different notes in SE. This is a major drawback.
4. SE are also prone to hang, restart etc but these occurrences are very less when compared to a Smartphone.
5. N/w is not as good as nokia as I mentioned above.
6. Data transfer speed sucks in all Sony Ericsson phones. Whether you have connected it in Phone mode or Data transfer mode, SE is miles behind Nokia.

Conclusion:

IF you want a smartphone choose a windows OS based such as one from HTC / O2 / Black Berry / Nokia Messenger..dont buy a XPERIA its priced to dig a big hole on your pocket.

In a practical environment, SE is O.K and its better than Nokia phones. I dont taken Nokia Messenger phones in account.

Now you know what to buy..need i say more ?

To remove the custom font, you can’t uninstall it. You need a Z font remover tool, I will post it up later.Note: Actually the font looks nicer than the picture.
