Series 60 call timer

Some people want to know how long their call has lasted while they are making it. Some have alluded to the lack of such functionality out of the box as “the biggest interface flaw of them all”. (As Jim says in a comment to that post, “If that’s the biggest flaw you can find in the Series 60 interface then I’d say it’s got to be pretty good :-)”.)

It turns out the functionality is included, you just have to turn it on (thanks bob!). Here’s how to do it:

  • Open the Log application:

  • Open the “Options” menu (left softkey):

  • Turn on the “Show call duration” option:

  • Done!

Granted, I only know that this works on my 6630, but I’m guessing it’s the same for the 6682.

Updated: you can get screenshots easily with FExplorer.
