How To Be Notified When Someone Reads A Text From You

You've probably seen this kind of feature in emails before. Basicalll it's a feature where by you're notified when the recipient of your text message opens it up and reads it. The function is simple to execute, and can be very useful if you rely on text messaging for your communication.

All you do is simply type *0# at the beginning of your message. Then be sure you make a space between the character and your actual text. What will then happen is that you'll be notified when the recipient actually opens the text up. It's an added text, but again it has its uses depending on how much you rely on texting.

Introducing the new Maps 3.0Beta, with better maps than ever before, enhanced Drive and Walk navigation and synchronisation with Ovi MapsBeta.

What's new from the previous release?

* Start-up sequence takes you to your current position as soon as position is found. If your position is not found in few seconds, you are taken to last known position
* You can rotate the map, so you can for example view 3D landmarks from all directions. Just press 4 and 6 in map view. Pressing 5 takes you back to 'north up' view
* In 3D view mode, you can tilt the view by pressing 2 and 8
* 2D/3D mode works with all map modes, i.e. with Map/Satellite/Terrain
* My Favourites menu is cleaned up and History list is moved higher in menu
* My Places has option "Point me to" for any saved place/landmark, you the direction to that place on the map
* In addition to the synchronisation of Favourites and Collections with Ovi Maps and vice versa (use in online mode, enable Internet connection), you can now plan routings on Ovi Maps and synchronise to your device
* Finally, many bugs have now been fixed

Compatibility and system requirementsMaps Updater and Map Loader 3.0 require Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.
Maps Updater requires Nokia PC Suite to be installed on your computer.
Maps 3.0Beta works with Nokia devices based on:
S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 (E71, E66, 6110 Navigator, N95, N95 8GB, N82)

Special Note: "Not enough memory to start the application" when attempting to open Maps 3.0 on your device - We have noticed that in some cases, Maps Updater does not fully delete the old map data on the memory card. In order to resolve this, go to your memory card (e.g. via File Manager) and delete the “Cities” folder. After that, restart Maps 3.0.
