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?

    But no.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    emulation isn't telling the silicon to perform a specific way, it's just translating the commands into something the cpu can understand
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga runs them natively
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and i assume there is a level of verification that is not possible with emulation since you can actually probe the pins to verify that it behaves the exact same as real hardware
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    so it's easier to get it 1:1
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there aren't even virtual pins with emulation that you could "probe", it doesn't go that deep

    So fpga PS2 when? Hehehe
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga PS1 isn't even out yet

    Just saw an article about Anbernic rg40xxh as a "cheaper alternative to RG Cube". I love it when they do that.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i guess they were thinking in emulation capabilities
  • Veho @ Veho:
    In emulation capabilities one can run Gamecube and the other can barely run n64.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    One is Android 13 and the other is Baked Beans OS 0.6 (I'm not even kidding)

    May I suggest a pocket calculator as a cheaper alternative?

    Veho you may be right, all in my PC is probably 1800 dollars and that's using refurbished and mid range parts lol

    Although some stats are pretty cool 38TBs of storage not counting external drives

    People ask why so much.... ROM sets for even PS2 just eat up that much
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Why so much? Because we have it in our minds we need the latest and greatest when pc performance peaked at a consumer level
