Nokia 3100 Question

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

Hi,

I just bought a Nokia 3100 from Fido and I would like to know what's the
trick to replace the "Fido" word in the middle of the screen by the word
of my choice.

What's the secret trick?

    Not sure, but I'm guessing that 'Fido' is an 'Operator Logo'. There are many
    many websites and companies that will let you change this. Some will let you
    costomise it with a word or words of your choice. But you will probably have
    to pay a couple of quid.

    You could start looking here:

    If anyone knows how to do this for free, I'm more than happy to stand
    corrected...

    I've only been using it for a couple of days, but I can give you my
    initial impressions.

    One of the reasons why I got the 3100 is that I know Nokia phones and
    I've had good experiences with them. I owned a 6188 and a 7190. I always
    had good reception and I always found the phones to be reliable in
    general. I always liked the menus, too.

    I say the same thing about the 3100. The reception is great, people tell
    me that they hear me very well on the other end, and the screen is
    sharp. The menus are the standard Nokia menus, which is good in my
    opinion.

    I find the handset a little small for my hand but that's my criticism
    towards most cell phones today and in any case, it is very discreet when
    I put it in the leather case and clip it to my belt.

    I'm not using Internet services on the phone, so I can't comment that.

    So... I'm very satisfied with the 3100 so far. No complaints. And the
    glow-in-the-dark is kinda fun.

    Take your phone and point the wap browser to www.jhonny.org/wap

    there will be a box that asks you for a number, just put in 1 and then
    ok....you will download a blank op logo. Then just go into display settings
    and turn on the blank logo. Boom op logo gone.

    I also recently got the 3100. It's an unlocked phone from Rogers but I use
    Fido.

    I've noticed a pretty bad hissing sound while using the phone and I'm
    wondering if you've experienced that at all.

    Other than that, the phone is very good, if a bit small (I'm used to an
    ancient 5190)!
