how to do multitasking in nokia series 40 PTT featured phones

multitasking in s40 image

One of my friends (praz) , who uses series 40 phone, told me that he uses PTT button in his phone to make calls while doing web surfing or playing a game.

So by playing around PTT settings I got a way to make most out of the the button.

By using this method you can make call, send sms,play songs,play videos,browse images,take new image or video clip,browse web through phone's in built browser and many more.

But this can be achieved only in PTT(Push To Talk) featured phones.

Below method is tested on Nokia 3110 classic and working flawlessly on it.

This is not actual multitasking. Coz it doesn't involve two tasks. But I was not able to find any better name other than multitasking.

lets start multitasking
...


First of all, let's configure PTT settings.
goto PTT(Push To Talk) >> PTT settings >> PTT default function >> Open contact list.



NEXT :
Now start any one of your favourite applications (example opera mini).

Now push your PTT button located on side of your phone. (many phone have volume up key as their PTT function key.Press and hold volume up key).

Now you got your PTT contacts screen.

Click on add new >> from contacts >> select your contact >> and save it.

OR

(Goto options >> add contact >> from contacts >> select a contact that you wish to call >> save it)

Now that contact will appear on the PTT contact screen >> simply press call key (green button) to call that contact.


Now let's do sumthing more.

Pay attention to "message sending" and "web browsing" methods.


1] to listen songs :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> tone >> open gallery >> now browse your songs >> select it >>play it.


2] to watch video :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> video >> open gallery >> now browse your videos >> watch it.


3] to take a new video :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> video >> new video clip.


4] to see images :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> image >> open gallery >> now browse your videos >> see it.


5] to take new image :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> image >> new image.


6] to send a message :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> tone >>tone downloads >> nokia.com >> options >> send >> text message >> replace the bookmark with your message and send it.

You can send multimedia too.


7] to browse the web :

goto options >> add contact >> enter manually >>options >> add detail >> tone >> tone downloads >> options >> new bookmark >> enter your address (example: google.com) >> enter title (example: google)
>> select the bookmark >> start surfing.

Besides these things you can check your battery level, signal strength and time toooooo.



I am still finding various ways to simultaneously perform other operations like reading sms or checking missed calls , etc. Hope I get these ways soon. Any of my reader if finds a way to do this then please inform me.
