Perhaps if you start ab initio, you will be able to figure out where it is going wrong. Reset the theme to the Default Theme. If that doesn't work and the phone still shows the a blue screen, there may be a problem with the theme data stored in the phone mem. If it happens only with your theme (and not the preloaded ones), that theme data is probably corrupted in the mem card.

Unfortunately this data is not visible to the File Manager or the PC Suite. If the phone mem image is faulty, the only recourse then is to get it reflashed and restarted (the theme data goes from flash ROM to RAM when you power up the phone). Back up your data before you get that done.

anytime bro. 1 more tip. if your phone is slower than the time when you
bought it then there is a fuction in your phone for formatting your phone memory. its called master reset. WARNING:make sure you make a backup of all your contacts and sms and everything thats stored on your phone memory that you dont wanna loose. this wont format your memory card but still make sure to remove it before doing this just for prevention of any loss of data from it.

Does iPhone use iTunes to transfer songs from computer? Someone mentioned that it can't send files over bluetooth. Is iTunes responsible for this shortcoming as the phone may not recognize the songs which are not transferred via iTunes?

No the bluetooth of the iphone does not have the ability to transfer files over the air. they have left it out for reasons best known to them. So its not itunes that is the culprit.

First of all iphone does support hardware for bt2.0(which is needed for file transfer) but they haven't provided with the software ,this is because apple never takes chances until they are sure about the product whether it's iphone or MAC sftwares!

If you heard that mobile phones too can have viruses and that mostly from Bluetooth and MMS!
this is the main reason they haven't provided the two of the apps in iphone!!!

So in other words, their bluetooth stack (From whomever they licensed), doesn't have the file transfer module. How funny! But then, Steve Jobs must have asked.

How can you be sure of the above logic. To me, this is more of a business reason. And apart from No-kia, I haven't heard issues for other phone makers suffering from Virus issues. SE & Motorola for sure haven't got any.

The issues, AFAIK, are:
1. Prevention of piracy in the music world
2. Inability to adjust the indexes so that the music player maintains list integrity

The first issue is the major reason why transfer channels can only be iTunes and online purchase (via GPRS/Internet). Apple doesn't even support (3rd party apps do, but they are not participating in any anti-piracy drive) reverse transfer from the mobile device to iTunes UNLESS it has been purchased from the iTunes store.

If one gets a file via BT or MMS, the legality of that cannot be verified, violates the principle, and hence it is not supported. Surely themes and wallpapers can be transferred, right? (I don't know - I don't use an iPhone)

On the other hand, if you have files on the PC drive, iTunes will happily accept it. So, IMHO this scheme is only meant to prevent FUTURE piracy, assuming that they can't do much about the old 'copies'.

Lovely logic, DerAlte. Makes fantastic sense!

But I could still transfer images from phone to laptop via BT, or that's not possible?

Because Nokia's most phones are smartphones whereas SE and Motorola's are mostly firmwares.

See all softwares need a script to be written according to which the main product works!! If you have open the files of iphone through the pc suite,iphonebrowser,or the old Ibrickr you can see the details written to be BLUE TOOTH 2.0 (which is suitable for file transferring ) but Apple doesnt provide the script for file sharing and made it old 1.3 version of Bluetooth (in which only headsets can be connected)


I have seen the script ,sorry i have sold my iphone otherwise i would have posted it here for your reference !!
AND i too asked the question to few more knowledgeable guys in this industry !!!


And for the issue of NOKIA , SE, and motorola , i agree to the post mde by extreme_torque

Not really, not like that.

Some Nokia phones use Symbian OS + Series xx application set. SE phones use Symbian OS + UIQ application set. Both support Java-based application installation, and the OS has open interfaces which can be connected to by external programs. Viruses exploit this 'open-ness' - most of them get injected via BT message transfer (not SMS) from infected phones.

Motorola, Nokia, SE, Samsung and other feature phones which do not have this 'open-ness', are safe. No chik-chik no khich-khich!

Some of the high-end Motorola 'smart-phones' (the ones that support PIM functionality) are based on a flavour of Linux, but for some reason no one writes viruses for Linux. Maybe there is no point in writing, because there are too few of them.
