To install an application, do the following:
1. To locate an installation file, select Menu > Settings and Application mgr..

Alternatively, search installation files using File manager, or select Messaging >

Inbox, and open a message that contains an installation file.

2. In Application manager, select Options > Install. In other applications, select

the installation file to start the installation.
During installation, the device shows information about the progress of the

installation. If you install an application without a digital signature or

certification, the device displays a warning. Continue installation only if you are

sure of the origin and contents of the application.

To start an installed application, locate the application in the menu, and select the

application. If the application does not have a default folder defined, it is installed

in the Installed apps. folder in the main menu.
To see which software packages are installed or removed and when, select

Options > View log.

Important: Your device can only support one antivirus application. Having

more than one application with antivirus functionality could affect performance

and operation or cause the device to stop functioning.
After you install applications to a compatible memory card, installation files

(.sis, .sisx) remain in the device memory. The files may use large amounts of memory

and prevent you from storing other files. To maintain sufficient memory, use Nokia

Ovi Suite to back up installation files to a compatible PC, then use the file manager

to remove the installation files from the device memory. If the .sis file is a message

attachment, delete the message from the Messaging inbox.
