Would you leave your smartphone for a day and use a Nokia 2330 instead?
Get a smartphone or get the Nokia 2330 classic instead?

I have been a smartphone user for over 5 years, and used only smarpthones since. But sometimes I feel like there is a disadvantage to being a smartphone user, the many functions and options they provide sometimes is just too much, the size of most smarpthones and not being very pocket friendly, the poor battery life? Should I go on? Well sometimes I think that a smaller, simpler phone with decent battery life like the Nokia 2330 could give me a break and simply do what phones are intended to do, calling and texting. Share your thoughts on this.. Would you leave your smartphone for one day only and use the Nokia 2330 or a similar phone?

Skype Blocks Fring!!!
Skype Blocks Fring!!!

Some of you might have noticed that Skype no longer works on your Fring application and there is a reason for this, Skype blocked Fring. Here is a part from the official press release.
Last week, following the surge in fring video calling traffic, fring service to Skype was temporarily reduced . Unfortunately, Skype and their legal team demanded not to restore your connectivity to Skype via fring.
Needless to say, we are very disappointed that Skype is now trying to muzzle competition, even at the expense of its own users.
While we regret Skype's decision to block fring, we are committed to continuing to provide you with market-leading innovation, to keep you in touch with your friends, wherever they are.

DoD Mar 18th: Advanced Call Manager for Nokia S60 - Take control of your incoming calls!
Advanced Call Manager for Nokia S60

You are busy, constantly in important meetings and discussions and your mobile is always ringing in a bad moment? All you need is the Advanced Call Manager. It will handle the incoming calls for you and personalize your approach to the callers - answer with a busy tone, send a kind SMS, divert calls, mute the ringer or play a personalized greeting.

The Advanced Call Manager unique feature is the ultra-fast recognition of remote callers which allows personalized replies (SMS, mute, reject, accept, greet, divert) to be attributed within a part of a second leaving the caller unaware of your current availability. The application rich functionality makes it a very convenient tool for any manager as it saves time by taking over the management of your incoming calls when you are too busy to do it by yourself.

With Advanced Call Manager you can organize your phone book into custom lists like Black (people you don't like to disturb you), White list (important people which are "allowed" to call you) or any other custom lists (a very special custom group could be your family to which you can wish to send a personal SMS if somebody calls you during a meeting). The application enables you to set different actions for the groups you have defined - you can accept, reject, divert calls, send personalized SMS, play personalized greeting or mute the ringer. In SMS templates you can set special messages for each group very easily. You can do the same with the personalized greetings.

Get Advanced Call Manager for Nokia S60 on Apr 18th with 50% off!
