John , an avid reader has send in this rather sorrowfull email about his phone.
I’ve been following your blog and commenting for a while now and I
have finally hit upon a set of problems that I can find no resolution
for and am hoping that the community of readers can help with!
1. No media, pictures/videos/tracks/sound clips show up in the Gallery
option anymore. Even though I can see the pictures/videos/tracks/sound
clips using the File Manager and they have all been stored in the
2. Every time I turn the phone off and turn it back on, I get a
message saying that it was “Unable to complete installation from hard
drive. To install remaining applications please use the Application
Manager.” Now in the App. Mngr. the only program is the Nokia Life
Blog that I have installed and uninstalled but the installation file
remains and I cannot delete it.
3. Sending an SMS is a painful process. It take close to 3 minutes for
the phone to be usable after you press the send button.
4. The Contacts application randomly exits and restarts.
It, like Windows XP (thankfully I use a Powerbook at work!), needs to
be rebooted once a day for best effect.
Any and all suggestions would be welcome!
Well John ,
It seems youve got it bad there Mate, But let me have my 5 cents worth .
1, This sounds to be like te harddrive needs to be refreshed , perhaps even reformated useing ONLY the tools that are on the phone, give that a go and see what happens.
2, Hmmmm never heard of this , BUT i suggestdoing a refresh of the Flash Memory maybe something there keeps it doing this .
3, That just aint right mate , im thinking Firmware update is needed bad here.
4,Again this smells of a broken firmware to me.
All in All i think your looking at a complete reset and if still after that its not behaving then get your self a Firmware update.
