. You’ll need to get familiar with your Nokia’s memory management features to keep it useful for the life of the phone. To inventory your Nokia’s current memory status, press the Menu key, press the Options softkey, select Memory Details, and then select Phone Memory or Memory Card to view the amount of memory in use, how much memory is available, and the type of data consuming your phone’s memory. We explore several tips that will come in handy when installing new applications, clearing out the old you don’t use anymore, performing risky operations, and making sure your phone has enough memory to perform at peak levels even when running demanding apps.

Back up & restore. It’s always a good idea to back up your phone’s data when performing any core operations, such as updating the phone software or installing apps, which potentially put data at risk. To back up your S60 3rd Edition Nokia to an installed memory card, press the Menu key; select Tools, Memory, Options; and then select Backup Phone Mem. When prompted, select Yes to create the backup and overwrite the existing backup. Creating the backup takes only a few minutes. To restore from your memory card, press the Menu key; select Tools, Memory, Options, Restore From Card; and then select Yes to confirm the operation. Select OK and let the phone restart.

To back up your Nokia to your PC, use a USB data cable to connect the phone to your PC, select PC Suite on your phone, and then launch the Nokia PC Suite on the PC. Click the Backup icon to launch the Nokia Content Copier, click the Backup button to initiate the operation, and choose the content you want to back up on the following screen. Then Click Next, select a destination for the backup file, click Next, and click the Close icon to close the utility. To restore a backup from your PC, click the Backup icon from the Nokia PC Suite menu, click the Restore icon, and select the desired backup file to restore from the following screen. Then click Next, select the data you want to restore, click Next, and then click Close.

Delete old messages. Your message folders can get stuffed with old messages if you don’t do some regular housekeeping. To free up additional memory, press the Menu key, select Messaging, select the Inbox, and then delete any old messages you no longer need. You can highlight individual emails and press the Backspace key to delete them one at a time. You can delete all of them by pressing Options; selecting Mark/Unmark, Mark All, Options, and Delete; and then choosing Yes. It’s also a good idea to clean out your Sent folder and any folders you set up to automatically retrieve email using the same procedures described above.

Delete cookies & clear cache. Clearing out the cookies and cache folders can free up memory and speed up your Web browsing. Press the Menu key, select Web, and press the Options soft key. Next, select Advanced Options and Delete Cookies. When you see the Cookies Deleted message, press the Options softkey again, select Advanced Options, and then select Clear Cache.

Uninstall apps. To remove software you don’t use anymore, press the Menu key, select the Installations folder, and then open the Applications Manager. Next, scroll to and select the application you want to uninstall, press Options, select Remove, and then select Yes to confirm the operation. If you uninstall an application that is vital to the operation of another application, the remaining application will likely stop working.
