Nokia 1208 documentation

Since the manual for the Nokia 1208 is so grossly inadequate, I created some documentation myself. In case someone finds it useful, it can be found here:

Suggestions for improvements are welcome.

Great start! I'd suggest putting it all into one file. Do you want me to host it here?

I've made some improvements and put it in one file.

If it was hosted here, where exactly would the link to it be? How hard would it be to update it?.

Hmmm, right. Until I move this site to a host with Dropbox on it, you'd have to send me the file every time you want to update it. I'll just link to your site for now (see here).

Thanks for doing this!

This is great!

Could you save this in a format that is readable across more platforms, like PDF, for us non-Windows users? The file is largely unreadable in StarOffice 8.0.

Also, some of the documentation we need might be found in other Nokia manuals. For example, the manual for the Nokia 3210 (3210_usersguide_en.pdf) seems to describe much of the menu items of the 1208. In one case, it has information on using the Composer to create ringtones. Some careful cut-and-paste could make this a very useful resource.

I may also write Nokia to complain about how useless this manual is and ask for a better one.

I emailed Nokia support, using the form on the nokia.ca web page, asking for a complete Nokia 1208 manual that describes all the functions of the phone. This is the response I received:

Dear [xxxxx],

Thank you for e-mailing the Nokia Care Contact Centre.

I understand your question in regards to the Nokia 1208 user guide not having more information available for customers.

Unfortunately, the user guide that came with your Nokia 1208 device, as well as the one located on our web site, are the only ones available at this time.

[xxxxx], I am sorry that you are not able to find information regarding timed profiles and the Composer function, but I would recommend that you either e-mail us your specific questions so we can assist you.

You are also welcome to call one of our Customer Careline Representatives at 1-888-226-6542 to better assist you while you are on the phone. They will be happy to assist you. We are open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), (excluding Weekends and Holidays). Our toll-free number is 1-888-22-NOKIA (1-888-226-6542).

I hope that this information is helpful to you.

If you have any additional questions, please contact us. To ensure proper handling, please continue to use the current subject line.

Thank you for choosing Nokia for your mobile needs.

In other words, "we didn't care about producing a manual for this phone."

What I suggest is that, using the listing of menu items that micro has compiled, anyone interested in this phone can submit direct requests for individual functions to Nokia until we have a complete 1208 manual.

The only thing I found was the user guide, and it's available here:

It was hosted on a server that is no longer available. Peter, can you still host it here?

Reilly was providing a space for it but it's gone too.

Here's it's latest home:
