Re: How to clear the cache?

Can you list what are the options you see when you go to Menu-->Web (Internet) ? Though I have a Nokia X3 ( also an S40) and Vodafone, India connection the last option there is Clear the Cache... If not then did you check under 'Web Settings' ?

[ Edited ]

on the browser and web services do you have further options either by pressing options or clicking towards the right with dpad

and the same for web services and history on your second list

 

note that all options may not be visible on screen you may have to scroll down

Re: How to clear the cache?

I tried everything there's no way to clear the cache nor the history. I wonder if this problem is persistant to only my phone or if any other x2 users have the same problem:-/.

Re: How to clear the cache?

I am also having exactly the same problem with my new Nokia X2-01. The default browser is Opera mini. clearing cache in opera mini is easy and its ok.

The problem is Nokia's browser which opens up on long pressing 0 key. I used that browser to open some pages. Also, Nokia communities and Mail utilities.

After using these the phone memory is gradually decreasing after every use.

And there is no option to clear cache.

I called up Nokia customer care but they dont have a clue. They know nothing.

I am really concerned that my phone memory will run out very soon.

Hard Booting (Formatting) the phone also is not giving back all the phone memory used in cache!

Plz help.

Re: How to clear the cache?

The default browser on ur phone seems to b opera mini instead of nokia's own browser though the option is available by long pressing 0 or *. So in this case the only thing u can do is to clear cookies of opera mini. And if u wish u clear cache of the phone's browser then just take a back up of phone's data except settings & restore all. Remember it'll remove all ur data so taking a backup is absolutely essential. And regarding the contacts, backup of contacts is not absolutely foolproof so u may end up losing ur contacts. So it'll b better if u copy them on ur sim card. I'm not sure but it may also lock up ur memory card so if u don't remember the password don't restore all. Pls correct me in this respect if i'm wrong.
