How does the trial version differ from the regular version?
The functionality of the trial and regular versions are identical. The trial software simply contains popup banners to request registration. There is no trial expiration period. After purchasing a registration code, you do not need to re-install the software, simply enter the registration code on the phone application.

How do I install PhonePoint?
Install the .exe file on your PC, then install the .sis file on your phone. Please check out the release notes for further details.

How much memory does PhonePoint use on my device?
PhonePoint uses about 30K of storage memory, i.e. it is nice and small.

Phone Installation problems!
Some of the more recent Nokia phones have shipped with software installation off by default. This can be switched on (temporarily if you wish) from the “Settings” item in the “Options” menu of the “(App)Manager”.

Does PhonePoint work with Windows Vista?
Yes, PhonePoint is fully compatible with Microsoft Vista and Office 2007

How do I enter the registration code?
Enter the registration code into the phone application. The application will prompt for a registration code when launched.

How much do upgrades cost?
Upgrades are supplied free of charge. Always have been, always will be.

Can I use PhonePoint with multiple PCs?
Yes. The registration is tied to the mobile phone (rather than a PC). Simply
install the PC software on a different PC and press "Select PC" from the mobile phone application.

Which versions of PowerPoint does PhonePoint control?
Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 or later, running on Windows XP or Windows Vista.

How do I view the Speaker Notes for a slide?
Either press and hold the Joystick button or press the '#' key.

What does "Open Presentation" actually do?
The “Open Presentation” phone menu command will open the most recently used presentation in PowerPoint, starting PowerPoint if necessary. It may take a few seconds to open.

Why do some slides not display a title?
If there isn't a title text field on a slide, perhaps it has only a picture or is a continuation of a previous slide, PhonePoint will not display a title. The slide position will, of course, still be displayed.

Why Does PhonePoint expose a TCP Port?
PhonePoint opens a TCP port (port number 29960) to accept incoming connections from WiFi devices.
