    5800 Tips and Tricks

    3. Tap the "General" or Date (the set Profile besides the clock) and the Profile selection menu pops out, almost similar to pressing the "Power" button in all S60, but here the Remove memory is not shown, but "Calendar" shortcut is included and the other profiles as well.

    4. If you are on the Numeric Keypad, pressing the [#] key alternately will toggle the General and Silent Profiles, same as before, which means long press on zero [0] will bring out bookmarks for the Web.

    5. Tapping on the displayed To do or Calendar entry will bring you immediately to that particular item.

    7. Long press on the Green Call Button will still activate the Voice Command Prompt

    8. Long press on the center button is similar to the Long press on the "Menu" key (the yin-yang key on most S60) which will bring out the menu for all the active applications.

    9. Go to Applications/File Manager and setup "Backup" for automated backup schedule of your phone data.

    Battery saving Tips
    ==============

    1. Always turn off wireless scanning, Bluetooth when not in use
    2. For those not using 3G, choose your network mode to “GSM” instead of “Dual mode” which will consume more battery. Settings -> Connectivity -> Network mode -> GSM
    3. Less Display Light
    a. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> light sensor (move the slider to the left)
    b. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> Light Time-Out (lesser time to save battery but annoying if too short while you are playing games)
    4. Always terminate the application properly that is not using by using Option ->Exit. It might be running background and consuming battery which you don’t know.
