Symbian basics: How to hide or show home screen applications on your E72?

Hi there students, today we’re gonna pick up where we left off last time! đŸ™‚

I would like to begin with a quote from A. A. Milne: “Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.

Keeping your room/office/desk organized is the key to your productivity, and I think it’s the same for your mobile phone.

You’re going to learn how to hide annoying/irrelevant apps on your E72’s home screen, or any other E series phone’s screen. It’s a pity this great option isn’t available on N series phones, because sometimes the homescreen is simply crowded.

How does Nokia spell “business”? E72.

As you already know, I’m using the Nokia E72 as my main device at the moment. In case you’ve missed my first post regarding this great business device, you can read it here.

The design

When you first look at this phone, your eyes will focus on its full QWERTY keyboard. Besides this, you can also notice that is very, very thin and extremely well built.

Nokia E72 is here!

I’ve returned the X6 16GB last week, and now I have the best business Nokia in my hands – the E72 – again, thanks to Darko! đŸ™‚

I had the E71 last year for two months, and I’m really looking forward to testing this sleek device.

Just to remind you, the E72 packs:

  1. full QWERTY keyboard, optical Navi key,
  2. 5MP camera, with LED flash and auto-focus,
  3. GPS with free drive and walk navigation using OVI Maps,
  4. Symbian Series 60 v3.2, FP2 device
  5. WiFi connectivity.

Main disadvantage – small screen.

Here are some pics I’ve taken, more coming soon in my “First impressions” post (click on each image to see its full size):

As I usually do when I get a new device, I’ve checked for firmware updates. The E72 supports OTA Update (I LOVE this feature!), so I typed in *#0000# on my home screen, and was presented with the following screen:

After clicking “Options->Check for updates”, I was pleased to see that there was a hefty update for my trial device available. Before running the update, make sure that the battery isn’t near its end! It also good to back up your data, although E72 supports UDP (User Data Preservation).

This update brings several performance and bug fixes, as well as new apps and updates to the old ones. To name a few:

  • Browser updated to 7.2.3.1
  • New apps include: OVI Sync, Internet Radio, Advanced Communication Manager (ability to automatically reject numbers, etc..) and Smart Connect (make a connections group).
  • OVI Maps updated to v3, so you have free drive and walk navigation.

I will be using the E72 as my main device for a few weeks, so if there’s anything you would like to ask, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
