F-Secure on N8. Please Note

Hi Everyone

I just want to notify  that the F-Secure security key should be numerical only because although the the F-Secure allows alpha-numerical key, if the SIM card removed the Alpha mode is disabled and you can not insert letters only numbers. In this case you'll be stuck and you'll need to insert the SIM and force restart via long press on power button and you can't use the phone without SIM.

Good Luck with your N8 :smileyhappy:

Re: F-Secure on N8. Please Note

I installed this on my N8 yesterday and had no end of issues. Calls would drop, I couldn't answer or make calls as the touch screen didn't work. Numerous restarts and the same every time. As it was only the making / receiving calls side of things that were affected (as far as I could tell) I managed to uninstall the app. All fine with the N8 again now.

Re: F-Secure on N8. Please Note

I removed F Secure two days after getting my E7, useless !! Better simply using the in built pin, which you can set yourself, and the txt lock which you can also set up yourself, just get your PUK code first :smileywink:

If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :
