    Support for older Symbian handset types?

    I'm vaguely aware of a client for the N9 and N900 for Symbian being worked on. Is there anything possible to use on an ancient E71x? My handset runs S60^3.

    What do you want to do? File transfer or use the device as a modem or something else? And how do intend to connect it (USB is probably most straight-forward)?

    If USB, just connect it and see what happens! I can transfer files and use my old Nokia with S60 as a 3G modem (to a computer with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS).

    At this point I'm wondering if there is something like the U1 Files app Android users have so that I could transfer between the phone and my storage on U1.

    I don't know, I have never searched for it, because I transfer files locally via a USB cable. Let us hope that someone (reading this thread) can link to such an app. Otherwise I suggest that you search for it via the internet.

    Another alternative is to move the flash card between your symbian device and a card reader connected to your computer. Not quite as convenient, but it should work. It is basically the same procedure as transferring pictures or video clips from a camera to a computer.
