Some random user tips for Nokia phone users

Holding down the Green "Call" button key brings up the call log on s60 devices. It's a quick way of making a call to someone who recently called you if you don't have them set up as a quick dial number.

Holding down the # key on some s60 devices will bring up the profiles list and toggle between silent and your preset profile eg. General (useful for meetings).
An alternative is to hold down the power button and the profiles list pops up (not as quick as the # key method).

When writing a text message repeatedly pressing down the "1" key will cycle through the other characters list that is brought up by the "*" key. THis is a quick way of typing things like dots, cmmas etc rather than having to hit the * key all the time and then select the character you want.
