Thanks for that Mark.
I went digging as you suggested and I'm now even more confused.
The C3-01 'Touch and Type' needs a S40 compatible app, but can I
find such a thing anywhere? Can I heck. The Nokia developer forum
is undoubtedly an area for clever people but it is way above my
level in the food chain.
I have found an app called Viper but I can't find a S40 version,
any other apps found also come with a voip service which I don't
want. It doesn't help that my phone does not have Interweb access
either so anything I find must be downloadable so that I can
transfer it by cable to the phone.
If you have any further suggestions or help my gratefulness
