Put the Pencil Key in your Nokia 5800 XM

One of the biggest shortcomings of the 5800 is that it doesn't have the "Pencil Key" anymore (also called the ABC or "the shift" key). It is the key that allows you to do multiple selection. Older S60 Nokias have this, the new one don't have it anymore. Well, here is a workaround:
  1. Download the The Pencil application here
  2. Click English on the left side if you dont understand Russian, I am sure many of you don't and it is better than babel fish.
  3. Symbian Signed the application here
  4. Install it and Run it, you will see just a RED screen, (well, what can i say they are Russians) on y case I click on the green call button (it will be assigned as my "default pencil key"), then click save (to save of course) and then press back.
  5. and now if I press green key and i scroll and i can now do multiple selection, just like the old "Pencil Key"


Signing it was quite easy too... just select all the categories...


Cheers all! And do give the guy a donation...

Guys, on those S60 phones that does not have the pencil button you can use the # key for multiple selection and copy/paste, without any additional application!
