Thanks God, my E71 survived the Tioman rain! On the way to the boat from our room in Tioman, me & all of us had to run in the heavy rain. With bags in my both hands, not forgetting my Lowepro Computrekker full with photography gears I ran toward the boat with my family…and I forgot that the phone was in my waist pouch. Upon reaching the boat, I was separated with my family. Me & my youngest daughter at the front section & wife together with the rest of the family at the back section. I managed to get a seat but I think my wife & the rest were not. Since the boat was overloaded, those standing were asked to board another boat which just arrived. Not sure whether wife & the rest were going to the boat or not….I tried to call her…and there….I saw my E71 soaked with water. I immediately took out the battery & I can then only wish than the phone will be OK. I put the phone in my dry box for 2 days….and now the phone is already OK.
Not sure what had happened, the phone was then very slow. So without hesitation, I just re-installed the new firmware & my phone backed to its usual performance.
I installed all the usual apps; Athan, QuickOffice 6 (free upgrade), Mini Opera, Location Tagger, all relevant Handy apps, Nokia Email, Google Map, Mail for Exchange & Gravity (for twitter).
I like Gravity, so I bought it for MYR35.22. The app is super easy. To twit, just type using the keypad…and then send. Wow!
I also installed the free Mail for Exchange (MfE) to sync my Google calendar & Gmail contact with my phone, and later to my Outlook. You need to configure the followings:
Connection (I’ll upload the screenshot later)
Credentials (I’ll upload the screenshot later)
And you need to select what app to sync. Only calendar & contact are valid for Google for the time being. I got problem with the credentials. As if my password was wrong. And tru Google I discovered that I need to request capthca unlock from this website. Done that twice already but not sure succesful or not….
