    I have a family member with this old phone but who broke of the top half (ie the screen) and is now unusable.
    However, It seems to be usable enough that, with a sim card, it can pick up calls and actually make them too, but without the earpiece, its still worthless.
    Wanting to know if anyone has, or can provide, a set of instructions to enable the bluetooth on this phone without the aid of the screen.

    Pretty obscure question, but wondering if anyone could help?
    Thanks GBATemp

    I'd suggest to grab a new phone. Many bluetooth headset's battery life are horrible, anyway.

    It's not worth the hassle.

    fgg: i'm thinking he's more interested in recovering photos/files via bluetooth than using a headset with the dead/dying phone

    That is correct. not interested in using the phone at all, I just want the data (pictures, photos, whatever). Then i can bin it.
    They simply want whats on the phone before we throw it away.

    If you have manual it should have some information about menu order but you may have to try pairing with another s40 nokia so you know how phone pairing works after you get to bluetooth settings. It would be 1 button operation with USB but it seems that model doesn't have regulal USB connection.

    Just remind your relative to keep important data in at least two places in future.

    unfortunately, I have gone through the manual, and from what I can see; It does not go into enough detail for me to turn it on. There are instructions for parts of what I want to do, but not enough to do it all unfortunately.
    thanks for the suggestion.
    any other takers?

    It only has 9mb memory anyway. Just deal with it or take it to Nokia care center where they can get information from that non-standart usb connection thingy.
