Smartphone that I may buy...

Posted 10-21-2011 at 08:36 AM by nenpa8lo

I'm pritty much into new technologies, but when it goes down to mobile phone industry... oh well I own a Nokia that is 5 years old. Reason? It has all I need. It makes phone calls, it can receive calls, I can send/receive text messages, has an alarm, and I can set up reminders. Yep, that's about it. Ah yes, and it lasts on single charge for about a week!

Is it possible? If it is, it's not obvious in any way, nor documented in the manual.

First, the space needs to be cleaned inside the client. This requires defragmenting the drive, and then running a program such as SysInternals sdelete to zero the unused space, so that the VirtualBox utilities are able to compact the file.
