How does Telco sends out phone settings to our mobile phone. Any GSM expert out there?
Or is there a way i can create a setting for my phone so i can just load it in anytime i needed to restore the values i want?

I'm currently using a E-61. :D

Thanks a million!

they are able to send to your phone when u downloaded via GPRS or thru interne or sms. They have a server housing an application running 24/7 to perform requests from users. If settings needs to be changed, the adminstrator will just edit the configuration.

The settings are standard.. just like your internet proxy settings to ISPs.:think:

I thouight E61 can backup the memory settings to miniSD card and can restore from same.
That's what I did when I upgraded the firmware to v3 (a must, IMO, wifi better now and the stupid voice recorder doesn't start automatically when you accidentally press the button).

I used the function inside the phone:
Menu --> Tools --> Memory --> Options --> Backup phone mem. (or Restore from card)

just wondering the backup saves every setting in your phone or just the contacts?
As far as I can tell, everything. But you mentioned later that you want to restore to another phone (a different model, I presume), then this method may not work.
I only restored to the same phone with this method.
