Are you bored seeing regular fonts on your Nokia mobile? Is it?

FlipFont is an application which can be installed on any Nokia S60V5 mobiles. FlipFont has some fonts in the application and we can apply them to our mobile. FlipFont can also download more fonts form online, so we can add much more fonts to our mobile.

FlipFont lets you change the user interface font on your phone making it more appealing and fun. FlipFont is free and comes with 3 trial fonts. Browse the fonts currently installed on your phone through the FlipFont app and switch to use a different font from the list.

How To Apply Fonts To Our Mobile: -

Step 2: After installing open it and click on “Get Started” after that select the font.

Step 3: After that tab on “Use This Font”.

Step 4: After that exit the application and restart your mobile. Thats it.


1. First select the font you want to apply on ur phone.
[Note :This font should be in .ttf (TrueType Font) format.]
The font I’m using is “Chinacat Regular.ttf”

2. Now that you have the fonts ready, Create a folder on your desktop (or anywhere else) called “Fonts” (Don’t type “Font”, type “Fonts” with an “s”)
Put your font (.ttf file) in this folder.

3. Now make four copies of this file……yes four copies…
Just like the screenshot below:-

4. Now rename the four files to:-
(i) “s60snr.ttf
(ii) “s60ssb.ttf
(iii) “s60tsb.ttf” and
(iv) “S60ZDIGI.ttf
(Without quotes)
So now your folder will look like this:-

5. Connect your phone in “Mass Storage” mode….
Now copy this “Fonts” folder in “E:\Resource”, Such that the four font files are in the location “E:\Resources\Fonts\”

6. Disconnect your phone, Switch off and switch on. On switching on, you will have a new font.

The phone will ask if you want to connect to the mailbox, do this to test that the mailbox works.

If you want to check your e-mail manually, just go to Messaging and select your mailbox, the phone will automatically ask if you want to check for new mail. If you want the phone to check your e-mail automatically, see the instructions below.

How To Use

·      Very important note for Gmail users
If you use Gmail as your e-mail account and you want to use the same account on your 5800's Messaging application, you will have to activate the "POP3" or "IMAP4" option from Gmail's settings page. This also applies to anyone who uses webmail services where POP3 or IMAP4 are switched off by default.
You can get to Gmail's settings page by clicking on the "Settings" link in the top right corner of the screen. Select the POP or IMAP option you prefer, then select the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the screen.

·      Help! It's trying to download all my old emails onto my phone! There are thousands of them! What do I do?
If you're using Gmail, try deleting the mailbox (using the instructions above), then set up a new mailbox for the same account using POP (not IMAP).
The settings page includes an option where only new mails are sent to your POP mailbox, which means your phone won't try to download all your old e-mails. Use this option so that the new mailbox isn't filled with old e-mails.
If you're not using Gmail, try to find an option similar to the one described, where only new mails are sent to your POP mailbox.

·      I Set It To Automatic Retrieval, But Sometimes It show me the message “Could Not Connect To Mailbox <Mailbox Name>”
Just go to settings again and re-enable the automatic email retrieval feature….The problem will be solved.
