wheres the page-down and page-up on the Nokia e90????

One of the things I hate about my Nokia e90 is the fact that it supports emails but it doesn't have the ability to page down or up through a list of emails :( or through a long email.

Obvious shortcomings...

I've decided to create a new category for posts which I intend to write concerning things that "would be perfect if only..." the designers took into account the obvious.

My next post will illustrate by way of example what I mean...

New Path Found To Antibiotics In Dirt(Sand)

This article in Science Daily mentions the presence of Anti-biotics in soil, which reminded me of a Hadith I read which stated that the Sahaaba used to injest a pinch of soil (taking Allah's name ofcourse) when they were ill. Not that there needed to be antibiotics properties there in the 1st place for Allah to cure them, but the very fact that there is could have been just because of their duah / faith in Allah.

MTN subs have fax 2 email (not advertised)

Just figured that as an MTN sub, I have fax-to-email and didn't even know.

If you visit the MTN website imail page you can configure your email details.

Then, if anyone sends a fax to 08314(+last nine digits of your MTN cell number) you will receive the fax as an email!

Wish they'd advertise these things.
