Lock Info on Nokia 6230

Was wondering if there's any way to know if my UK Orange contract phone is locked to the orange network? I could enter a code into my old T610 that'd list whether it was locked or not.

Just as once my contract ends I fancy sticking an O2 PAYG SIM in it till a decent phone shows up on the market. Don't wanna stick an O2 Sim in it the now and find I've locked the phone..

Simply insert the new simcards, and then if there is, "Sim locked", or something, enter one of these codes:

Free WeatherBug released for the 5800 and S60 5th Edition

Just released in the Nokia 5800's Download-Widgets folder is the free WeatherBug, offering worldwide weather status, forecasts and radar animations, all (optionally) keyed to your GPS location. As the folder suggests, it's implemented as a (Web Runtime) widget, in similar fashion to AccuWeather, released last month in the same folder. How many more ways do we need to find out what the weather's going to be like tomorrow? Screenshots below.

YouTube goes native for S60 3rd Edition

Hot on the heels of their new Mobile site, YouTube has now also released an official (native) S60 client application. It is compatible with most S60 3rd Edition phones. The video quality is good, and looks to have been optimised for QVGA screen resolution. There's a basic interface to browse and search through YouTube's extensive video catalog. All videos are shown in full screen, but widescreen videos are shown in a 'letter-box' format. Read on for more information and screenshots.

The application allows you search for videos, or view lists of the top rated, most viewed and most recent videos (as seen on the web version). Choosing any of these loads a list of videos with an image 'carousel' at the top of the screen. You can quickly browse through the available videos, viewing both a thumbnail, a short description and miscellaneous information about the video.

Selecting a video opens and starts playing it in landscape orientation. Pressing any key shows the standard YouTube controls. You can then change the volume, play/pause the video or jump forward and backward through the video.

You can download the application by visiting in Web and following the download link near the top of the page. However, currently the application appears to be restricted to Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The client is not currently fully compatible with S60 5th Edition (Nokia 5800, you can't enter search text, and other issues), but it is safe to assume this will change in due course, in addition to other countries being supported.

Power users may like to bear in mind that the interface is relatively basic when compared to donate-ware Mobitubia. For example there's no way to 'Save' clips, but for most users it will be more than sufficient.
