    Default Nokia 3110 problem

    i bought Nokia 3110 classic in last november. after using for few days i am facing a weird problem, i set my ringtone & sms tone to a custom tone which is stored in my memory card. Now some times it happens that the ringtone & sms tone changes to default nokia tone automatically (not changing the profile or removing the memory card). does any one knows why this things happens & is there any solution for this.

    N3110 is known to be a troublesome phone. Have u tried taking it to the Nokia centre ? What was their explanation? Maybe a firmware update might fix it.

    Please standby for further suggestions from board members. Some may have experienced the same with the phone and may respond to it. If no replies, then Nokia Care is the last hope..

    Moving the song to the phone memory will also induce the same error. Have seen it in my N3110c.

    I would suggest to keep away from this phone at all costs. The phone also suffers frequent restarting when the memory card is loaded (say 700MB+ is filled on a 1GB card).

    Firmware flashing isnt helping it either.

    the problem is not only with 3110. this happens with my n73me also .. but rarely. this is a generic problem with most symbian phones. sometimes during a incoming call/sms, if there is a delay in reading the memory card for the set ringtone ... the default tone is played ... the coz of this delay is not known to me either.

    Answer to your all 3110C phone problems is below:


    Those who still have this restarting problem on Nokia 3110c ... Im telling the solution again, step by step.
    It ll work . you dont need to go 4 the new firmware


    If ur phone restarted 3 or 4 times and switched off automatically. Try this
    method
    1] Remove the battery and Micro SD card
    2] wait about 5 minutes
    3] Then switch On the phone WITHOUT the memory card

    Now ur phone working well without restarting

    4] Then you must restore Factory settings frm the Settings Menu
    [default security code:12345]
    {i know most of people have done this thing,but remember u have 2 go
    with the correct order.Unless it will not work.OK}

    5] Now apply a theme. The theme's size should be below 100kb

    6] Now ur phone working fine without the Micro SD

    7] Then wait about 5 minutes and Switch off ur phone

    8] Remove the battery and insert the Micro SD
    {Don t Format the memory card}

    9] Switch On ur Nokia 3110c phone.
    10] Now Keep ur free Phone memory space [Not the memory card's free space]
    between 470kb - 499kb.

    Now surely ur 3110c working fine about 5
    months.During these time u can
    1] Send/receive any file via bluetooth.
    2] Enjoy Music,video, GPRS,Yahoo Go .....etc
    3] Also u can Update music library anytime.
    but remember below DONTs
    1] Don t try to change themes.{u have to stick with a theme}
    2] Charge ur phone in ON mode
    3] Dont fully discharge the battery
    4] Start charging ur phone when there is only a bar on Battery indicator
    5] Dont erase calender notes

    Make sure about above 5 Donts

    Dont worry if ur phone restarted once.{U know the problem is restarting several times
    and automatically swiched off.}

    After 4 or 5 month there is a possibility to occur the problem again.
    if so Follow the above steps again.
    Good luck

    ^^ yes i tried on my own phone...


    the problem with this great phone is that it has very small inbuilt memory which makes the cache full in very small time...

    so its required to make the cache 0.
    to do this, we have to reformat the card, backing up all the files onto the comp..

    than reset the phone..

    this will delete the cache memory...

    one must not keep any other folders inside any default folder, like xyz folder inside music folder...

    after 4-5 months of continuous usage this is mandatory to make the cache 0 by doing this stuff..

    Cool

    I am a 3110i C user... my phone would Switch off at its will and it did show various malfunctioning.. I always had my problem solved by updating the software and sometimes by Formatting my memory card...
    The phone's not that bad, its economic and 'classic'... :001_tongue:
    Nokia care sholud take care of it. Its fine if it comes under warranty or v can always update it wi 'pc suite'. It does'nt come wi this phone tho..

    problems started with my phone soon...

    when, i replaced my micro sd with the desi one..it had Nokia's own 512mb card free with it, but i wasnt satisfied with it, and know what? brought a R.P (brand)card, so it started to kick my phone after 4-5 months.. phone started to reboot by itself..

    i had some films as 3gp videos in that micro sd, and whenever i tried to go inside the videos, and reached these films, the phone restarted as soon i wanted to see the thumbnail of the movies and select them to view..

    it was making the things crazy, and finally one day the card became a problem.

    now i have it in my pmp.
