How to make your own tune
your Nokia phone
1=C 2=D 3=E 4=F 5=G 6=A 7=B
8 shortens the note
9 lengthens the note
* changes the octave (1,2,3)
0 insertes a rest (pause)
# changes the note to a sharp

Those with a little musical knowledge should know that there are 7 principle notes: c d e f g a b, but there are 12 notes in total: c c# d d# e f f# g g# a a# b
(c# d# f# g# and a# can also be called d flat, e flat, g flat, a flat and b flat!)

The Nokia phones' keypad takes the place of a musical key board (see pic above)

EXAMPLE:
Starting with a blank screen, pressing 1 2 3 will give you a display of:

which means: Simple huh?

Pressing 1 2 # 3 will give you a display of:

which means:

Pressing 1 2 8 3 9 * will give you a display of:

which means:

Now try this:
1 * 8 7 * * 8
1 * 7 * * 9 6
8 7 6 9 9 5 8
0 6 # 6 8 6 #
6 9 5 8 6 5 9 9 4 8

That should give you a display on your phone that reads like this:
8c2 16b1 16c2
8b1 16a1 16b1
4a1 8g1 8- 8#a1
16a1 16#a1 8a1
16g1 16a1 4g1
8f1

Now if you selct OPTIONS and Play, you will hear Robbie Williams' 'Millenium'
If it is too fast (or too slow!) then select OPTIONS and scroll down to Tempo to adjust the speed. The higher the number, the faster the tune. For 'Millenium' the tempo should be 100bpm.
