Some Basic Stuffs to get for N80

  • Martin Field’s Screen Protector – it is rather thick and can protect against scratches, one of my N80 got a fine cut across the screen after visiting the Nokia Service Centre, just imagine if the screen protector isn’t there! And oh, the back camera lens is protected as well. (available at MobileSquare)
  • SanDisk miniSD card – Well memory cards are manufactured based on different technologies, Single Layer Cell (SLC) and Multi Layer Cell (MLC). In SLC, 1 bit of data is represented by 1 cell. On the other hand, in MLC, 2 or more bits of data get represented by a single cell. I am not saying that SanDisk are based on SLC but then it is based on a more reliable MLC technology than Kingston (my personal experience). Else you can check out those high end series of Transcend and Kingston which is truely on SLC. Advantages of SLC? Lower power consumption, faster read-write, less prone to data corruption, e.t.c …
  • Nokia AD-41 for Music Pleasure – Well it does comes with microphone so that you can answer call in the midst of enjoying music
  • SMS Accelerator Fix from NOKIA – solves the slow sms sending problem. It is recommended by Nokia to install it even if your handphone don’t experience the problem
  • AutoLock – The name gives you an idea of what the program is doing
  • Y-Browser – great for manipulating hidden stuffs

    if you are referring to using wireless internet at macdonalds, perhaps you would want to use the internal browser of N80.

    Use the internal browser to browse to any site, perhaps mine? haha! Then you will encounter the macdonalds login page, proceed as per normal, filling in the fields and checking the 2 checkboxes then login.

    Once connected, you can open your opera browser and/or MSN and choose scan for wireless network during the connection prompt. It should work fine. At least for me.

    Opera and the internal browser got their own fair share of authentication sites which they cant open. So just try to keep a note of which browser to use for authentication. 🙂

    Well, for some wireless access points (AP), the login page will only load in opera, while some AP’s login page only appear in the built in web browser. Try using the built in browser to connect to the MacDonald’s AP first, then use opera to browse. 🙂
