Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

Inside my E71, I have several installed programs on my old memory card. When I swap the old memory card with the new one, I can't access these programs. Does anyone know how to copy the installed programs from my old memory card to the new one? Or any other suggestions?

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

You have to reinstall the same applications on the new card as well. Alternative is to install commonly used applications on the phone memory.

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

bajaj: to find out how much capacity (used and free) each of your memory options (phone and card), go to: "Menu" > "Installat.", then left-click on "Options" and scroll down to "Memory details" (third from the bottom).
Mine has about 120 MB.

cjlim (or anyone who can help): is there any way to transfer the applications to my phone memory? or do I need to go after the source of each application to obtain it again (and only then reinstall it to my new memory card or wherever else I want it)?

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

Thanks to a wonderful thing called DRM, you probably won't be able to move applications across from a memory card to phone memory.

The best thing to do when you get a new phone (too late, I know) is to pop out the memory card, backup the contents to your computer and then start fiddling with your shiny new toy.

This would keep the raw uninstalled sis files available for future reinstallation. Works only for the Nokia supplied freebies and trial versions of course.

I've never been able to do this myself until it's too late and all the apps have magically installed themselves and vanished off the new memory card.

Most (not all) should be on the relevant Nokia product support page (http://europe.nokia.com/A41073165) or in the Download! application in the installations folder. Multiscanner is the one which is missing on the product page, but showed up recently in Download!


If you've been madly adding applications later on, you should have saved up the initial install files, but who does that, right?

Re: Transfer data from Blacperry to E71

1. Try using Bluetooth to transfer the address book directly from phone to phone. Easy enough but it can be slow and tedious.

2. If you're using Windows on your PC, sync the source phone to Outlook, clean up the entries, and then sync the PC to the target phone.

3. If you're using a Mac, configure iSync (not sure it supports Blackberry), and iSync will do the heavy lifting for you.

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

Thanks for the info! Even if the news is not so great... but I'll remember it NEXT time I switch to a new phone. :smileywink:

How exactly can I save the initial install files? When I downloaded them to my computer (PC), ok, they're still there, but what about applications I downloaded directly to my phone? Is there a way to save the install files elsewhere?

And is DRM an acronym for "Digital Rights Management"?

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

One more idea: if I've backed up my phone (memory card included) to my computer via Nokia PC Suite, will I be able to recover my applictions if I change cards?

Re: Problem when I change to a new memory card (E71)

For the memory card, I *plan* to zip up the entire file system and store it somewhere.

For applications purchased later on, I always try to buy them using my desktop and save the sis files on the desktop along with the license keys.

As far as I can tell, there's no easy way to backup/reinstall/copy applications already installed. DRM == Digital Rights Management, indeed.
