How to Disable D-Pad for Flash and Java Apps in Nokia 5800

Posted by Mobile Geek on
Saturday, April 25, 2009


Sometimes when you install and launch any Java or Flash application in your Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. It shows you a d-pad like the one shown in the following image. Here we are taking example of e-buddy mobile messenger application.

But sometime you really don't need this d-pad because these applications can be run by just touching. In that case, you wish to remove it. Here is the way, you can get rid of d-pad for any application.

Step 1:
Go to settings--> Application mgr.--> Installed apps. -->the-application

Step 2:
Right click on the application you selected in step 1 and select Suite Settings. It will open a screen as given in the following image.

Suite Settings
Step 3:
Select On-Screen Keyboard option and the select off as given in the following image.

Now you are ready to use our e-buddy application without any d-pad as shown in the following image.

In the same way, you can again have your d-pad when needed just by selecting Game and navig. keys option.

    Doesn't work for flash applications (*.swf files)!!!

    Sunil Kumar Gupta says

    Hi Illidan,

    It works for flash based mobile applications. .Swf is just a flash file not a mobile application.

    Hope you got the difference.
