Enjoy non-suicidal letter shape on your mobile / cellphone. Why use a
suicidal shape k/K on the 11th english language letter, see:
http://Kalphabet.googlepages.com, when you could use a non-suicidal
letter shape alternative i.e. क/क in lower and upper cases? [choose
UTF-8 on your internet browser’s character encoding if you are unable
to see the new shape]
That is exactly what I did by using Symbian S60 v5 operating system
mobile / cellphone. I had been searching for an easy font alteration
on the mobile / cellphone in Britain. I had searched Android
operating system phones and there was either (1) rooting the phone
which required some technical ability and also involved some risकs or
(2) contracting or buying the expensive Samsung Galaxy S range or a
few other Samsung models which has the font alteration capability.
There was something also technical with option (2) as the Samsung
mobiles / cellphones used Google Play / Android marकet and this
involved certain technical abilities because I could not simply upload
a .ttf font from the PC.
Thus I opted for a much easier solution and this was purchasing a
cheap Symbian S60 v5 operating system mobile / cellphone when I learnt
that alternating the font was easy and could be done by a newbie. The
mobile / cellphone for font alteration mentioned were: Noकia 5800,
5233, 5230 and 5235. I only had to copy 4 times on the PC my chosen
font containing the non-suicidal letter, i.e. the BBT font ( download
it for example from here http://www.archive.org/details/BbtFont -
choose Regular or Italic ) and then only change each file name to
(note lower case / upper case file name letters) s60snr.ttf,
s60ssb.ttf, s60tsb.ttf and S60ZDIGI.ttf.
Then I either had to:
(1) on a Memory Card create 'Resource' named folder and in it the
'Fonts' named folder and put the s60snr.ttf, s60ssb.ttf, s60tsb.ttf
and S60ZDIGI.ttf files there - restart the phone.
(2) connect the mobile / cellphone to the PC in Mass Storage Mode,
search for the 'Resource' named folder in the internal mobile /
cellphone file system and in it the 'Fonts' named folder and if there
was not one there - create the 'Fonts' folder. Transfer the
s60snr.ttf, s60ssb.ttf, s60tsb.ttf and S60ZDIGI.ttf to the 'Fonts'
named folder. Restart the mobile / cellphone.
I chose this method (1). I found the process easy and really prefer
the non-suicidal letter shape on the mobile / cellphone. The only
thing that I as a newbie have not been able to do is alter the default
Noकia image at booting though I have put the non-suicidal letter
sticकer (see post mentioning sticकerbooक) on the Noकia name which is
on the phone case front and put blanक sticकers on the Noकia name which
is on the reverse and on the battery due to larger size sticकer
unavailability and also it was convenient.
