Transfer Files Through WiFi in Nokia Mobiles

Now a Days Mobile Phones are Used As mini PC, they are much used for Camera, Music Playback, Video and Surfing.. But Transfer of Files is Only Possible through USB cables between PC and Mobile Phone.

Why Are you Still using same old USB transfer While you can Transfer Without Wires?

Now there is an Option of Transferring Files through Wifi With the Help of  Telexy.Networks.SymSMB. SymSMB is a mobile Software For Nokia S60 3rd edition NSeries and ESeries devices. But i Also Works on S60V5 Like Nokia 5800 XM, Nokia 97 and other Touch mobile Which have In-built WIFI.

SymSMB is

-Easy to Use

-Two Directional



With SymSMB you can:

– work with your phone’s files from a computer through “Network Neighborhood” without any additional software on the computer

– access your phone from different operating systems.

In the Below Screen Shot Can Clearly See My mobile(Karthik 5800) And PC(Karthik-PC) in Network Neighborhood Mobile 😀

How to Install and Configure SymSMB?

    • Hi Rocky. In Network neighborhood u have to use ur Computer User Account name and Password so that u can access the files in the computer, make sure u set the sharing permissions in the folder.. if still the problem access restart modem and ur mobile !

  19. I restarted phone and modem and same problem appear, I succeed sending files from computer to mobile once, but when I wanted to enter PC error appeared again, everything is set how it need to be, only I don’t have a password on User but it doesn’t matter, maybe lower version of app will work? What you think?

    • If u cant able to access your PC then u must have shared the PC with Settings that the user name and password is required to enter your PC !

      What Operating system u are using ?

      • Sayan Sambit says:

    I am using Nokia 6220c and recently purchased Nokia N8. I have around 11450 msgs in my 6220c which i wanna transfer to N8. I tried to transfer them through Phone switch thrice, but it’s taking ages to do the transfer. Thrice the whole night I have kept, but everytime at different stages it stops, e.g. once it stopped at 3500 msgs and then next time at 4200 and the last time at 4800. Please lemme know if there is any other method for transferring the data. I just need those msgs.
