SpeedTest.Net is a well-known service for testing speed of internet connection. Android and iOS was one to get a client for this service. And Symbian didn’t have any client so far. I was one of those who wanted this and requested for a client for Symbian.
I just stumbled upon  an app in Nokia Store which tests the internet connection using . It doesn’t seem official app but claims to test speed from SpeedTest.Net.

This app allows you to test ping and download/upload speed.


There are enough settings and also the ability to select server to test with. It also stores the history of your previous tests.

Protect your phone from theft. Use this app

4 Jan , 2012  

Have you ever lost your mobile phone before? If yes, How did it feel? Nice? I doubt! :/ Most of us cannot stay comfortably for few minutes without our Nokia phones not to talk of loosing it. Just to save you from that sad moment of loosing your mobile phone, we have decided to give you a “Plan B” to secure you just in case you fall into that bad condition. If you’ve got the resources to watch the video below, you could skip the rest of the article and watch it otherwise keep reading.

There are many apps that offer Anti Theft solutions but this article is focused on F-Secure Anti Theft

What is F-Secure Anti Theft?

F-Secure Anti-Theft For Mobile is a mobile security application designed to prevent misuse of your personal and confidential data in your mobile phone. Anti-Theft Mobile has some powerful features like the ability to remotely lock the phone with a single SMS message. You can even know the location of your lost phone and even when the thief replaces the sim card in your mobile phone, the Theft Control feature lets you lock the phone automatically and even sends an sms message to you informing about the thief’s new number. Finally if you are unable to retrieve the mobile phone then you can erase all the data in the mobile phone with one sms message using the feature called Remote Wipe.

By sending a single sms you can control the data in your mobile phone and

– Lock your phone remotely
– Locate your phone remotely
– Erase the confidential data remotely
– Information about the thief’s new number

In Summary,

This Application:

– Is easy to install and use.
– Protects your confidential information against loss or theft
– Helps you locate your phone

Even Nokia supports the use of this application as they continuously add it to their mobile phones that support it just to encourage and support their customers. All that is required from you is to set it up and understand how it works.

You can download the Symbian version from the store free of charge. The Video below is a demonstration of how it works 🙂

PS: Before I call it a wrap, please note that having this application is not a guarantee that you MUST find your lost Nokia phone. A certain level of carefulness is still required of you as a human being.
