N900 Q&A – operator codes, bluetooth sharing, software sources

9 April 2010Entry by

From time to time here and there I find questions regarding USSD codes. Most of people asking that question want to use some specific phone numbers or numeral codes to check account balance in prepaid, activate or deactivate services and so on. For this purpose you can use ussd-widget, which allows you to use this codes and receive reply from operator. Widget is easily configurable with very verbous help, so you shouldn’t have any problem using it.

Some people also ask about sharing various files via bluetooth. I know at least two ways of sharing files, first one is CuteExplorer mentioned in one of previous posts. The second method of sharing files is Petrovich application, which allows to share not only via bluetooth, but also e-mail, or sharing services like Ovi.

Another question that happens to repeat is about where to find specific software. I try to add information which catalogue contains what I’m writing about, so to remind we have additional extras-devel and extras-testing catalogues, more information in post ‘Another word on application catalogues – tutorial’ and every time I’m refering to that in footer. If you don’t know which catalogue you should turn on you can check on maemo.org Package interface to see where this package was already released, most common order is: extras-devel, extras-testing, extras. But if every of this ways of looking will fail try googling around, you should find something more than just one article.
