    >> but i succesfuly instaled this in 500Mhz Pentium III, only 256Mb RAM is REQUIRED,

    I think could exist a Virus for series s40!!
    I have nokia 5300. Life timer is only 2 hours on it. It has never dropped or else.
    After install a series of .jar applications from a russian site my signal is lost.
    I cancel a requested installation of a certificate from one site and from this date
    i lost signal. I deleted everything, i removed memory card etc.. I updated phone with
    new version 05.00 with succesfull but signal remain lost.
    Under Menu>Applications we found only 2 folders: Games and Collection
    Now i have Games=0,0kB and Collection=0,0kB
    Under Options>Memory status>Phone at Applications is value of 95,0kB. WHY?!?
    I think is some hidden .jar or else on this folder which take control of my signal.
    I used MobyExplorer and Nokia PC suite to find some strange file but this system folder
    is not displayed there.
    I read from Authority certificate site UTI (Unified Testing Initiative) is possible
    a Java uncertified software to take control over a phone essential functions.
    Many peoples say is not virus for s40 only s60 but is not true! Some is happen with my phone!
    Please if someone want to help me to move in him phone the content from this folders to remain empty
    and follow to see how many kb is displayed under him that memory status @ Aplications.
    Thank you!

  2. hi all,
    I think I might have a virus on my 5300 too.
    I bought this device in august,2007.already had V5.0 Firmware on it, everything was fine, until i installed an application called “blue bug” and shared with my fiend, so we tried attacking each others phones with this bluebug just to see what it does(that was a stupid idea),
    anyway on the same day, but just alittle bit later i noticed a new opnion in my main menu called “IM”.
    I gues this means “instant messaging”, but when i select it, the phone shows a text “program not found”, on the same day i had problems erasing my old messages, and reading them as well.
    I switched off the phone, and had problems switching it back on(I have them even until now)…
    the phone is not working propertly..
    I cant get any of the applications started,except the “musicgues”, because the phone stops responding..
    turning it on is a chalange too, because when i do that after i have entered the PIN code the screen flashes about 4 times and turns off.. but sometimes after those flashes it turns on.
    I have tried updating the firmware, but as it was already the newest so i had to reinstall it with the nokia software updater
    it gave no results anyway..
    CAN ANYONE HELP ME,please? :((((((((

  3. knock your head with your phone, and see whether it changes. Who asked you to install dubious stuff!

    On the other hand, try appealling for a warranty. If worst comes to the worst, you probably have to get your phone to a nokia care shop and ask them to reinstall the software within.

    I know this kind of things drove you nuts, and i sympathise, man. My phone soundboard got damaged and i spent 2 months without it.

  4. thanks, already working.. before two week i appealed for warranty.. today thay gave it beck to me.. they only reinstalled the software.. thanks anyway 🙂
