If you are reading this article, you are at the right place. This article will teach you some measures, tricks, task you must take in order to avert Flashing your phone. I have experienced this just about last two (2) weeks ago, it was my carelessness that led me into loosing about eight hundred sixty-three (863) important files through flashing. Although, it was my first time of flashing my pretty Nokia 2700. Read my easy tips to run away from loosing your favourite files through flashing.
1. KNOW YOUR PHONE’S MEMORY STATUS
Phone and Memory Card Memory status are not underestimated in the sense that, it will guide you on when the phone memory is about to full. You must not allow your phone memory to be full to the brim.
DAMAGES: Failure to adhere to this essential guide will cause your phone to automatically hang any time it’s been switch on. In most cases, it may take so long to boot, and thereby corrupt your file system.
For Instance, Nokia 2700 classic has a Free Memory of about 19.5MB (Megabytes) and you download 10 games of about 1.2MB each.
Now lets do the calculation;
If 1 GAME is = 1.2MB then 10 Games will be 1.2MB * 10 = 12MB
Now, you saved 3 music in your Music Folder of which each rate 1MB, which makes 3MB
You applied Theme of 1.5MB, saved images that contains 3MB in the same phone Memory
Watch it out; Total Memory used= 12MB +3MB+1.5MB + 3MB = 19.5MB
Eventually, your phone stops booting but will display NOKIA logo which you have to format with 500 to 700 Naira before it regain Operation.
To avoid this mischief, insert a 2GB Memory Card into your phone. Whenever you have a file that exceeds 350KB, mark those files and move them to your Memory Card. In the same manner never you allow your Memory Card to Reach its Maximum Capacity.
By following the above tips, your phone OS (Operating System) will function properly.
2. FILE SHARING
Transferring and receiving files from our friends may lead to acquiring virus especially the receiver. Some of these viruses can’t be seen with our physical eyes but with the help of some software (anti-virus), it can be prevented, blocked from entering our phones.
Are Virus harmful to phones?
DAMAGES: Virus quickly switch off your phone when you get infected maybe from a friend’s CHINA phone, thereby leading to flashing your phone. In most case the malware (virus) damages the phone’s operating System forever, else the Panel is replace with another one.
To avoid this great damage, scan your phones with workable Antivirus installed on your phone, before sending or receiving any files or application especially those files on the internet.
Finally, never you apply themes which has a higher size than the free memory on your phone. Because you rooted, signed your Symbian phones doesn’t mean that every application should get inside your phone. Be sure you free your phone memory anytime it prompts to do so.
