Often there are complaints regarding the 3G/GPRS connection, the main being the difficulty in using “Internet Call” thru 3G. The users wonder, “it works thru WLAN, they it should work thru 3G”. ie they assume the settings […]

Complex replication scenario with Jet 4

We need a Jet replication which should involve direct and indirect replication. There wont be any need for conflict resolution as there wont be any conflicting data by design. The main db , the design master is to be kept at the HQ with very limited access on a Windows server. There should be a […]

Exporting to “Excel” from Xceed Grid

Xceed Grid has a fairly easy one line code to export a grid to Excel file. What’s the  catch (at least for me) ? It simply doesn’t allow multiple sheets in a file.(Please correct me if I am wrong). But I don’t need a multitude of files for a group of reports. And I don’t […]

Using Mail For Exchange on an N80

For some strange reason, Nokia stopped supporting N80 for their new Mail for Exchange client software. So you have to get the 1.3.0 version from them. Now, I have the client. How do I test, ‘coz I dont have an Exchange server. No worries. Mail2Web provides you a FREE account for synchronising your email, contacts […]

“Blackberry”ing N80

I am not a frequent traveler and so I don’t need a Blackberry and real-time push email. But, as I’m a bit lazier to check(pull) my emails, it was nice to have my emails “pushed” out. Nokia provides BlackBerry Connect only for their Business phones. So no luck for me. It was then I decided […]

Send Free Fax using N80

Imagine you are at an airport waiting for your flight, browsing Internet using the WiFi connection in the Lounge.. Now your agent calls you and asks whether it’s possible to FAX your passport copy to complete some Visa formalities. You can easily email, but the agent prefers a FAX. You don’t have to rush to […]

True VoIP at 64Kbps !

After my initial success of VoIP and SIP on my N80 in the 128Kbps ADSL, i tried the same on my 64Kbps ADSL home connection. Same settings. I use the same name of my Office Accesspoint at my home also. Thanks to Truphone, I could test VoIP to some real telco numbers in the US for free. I couldn’t believe ! The call was indistinguishable as VoIP call to the persons at the  receiving end. No lag , echo or delay. I must say the call was better than the PSTN calls I do to my parents in India. Then I tried a pure VoIP to VoIP . Sharing the 64Kbps, I was able to get a perfect call to my computer. I had GizmoProject at my home pc and using my N80 I was able talk to my kids (Just for fun) I could better talk to them direct ! It’s really amazing ! I remember the ISDN people telling you must have 128Kbps for two-way communication ! But then , it was Fifteen years back !
