1.Create a text message. 2.Key in the word "Battery", followed by a space and the Battery Code, example 'Battery 12345678909876543210'. 3.Send the message to 5555. 5555 is only applicable for users of GSM network. Operator SMS charges will apply. For users of CDMA network, please check your battery via the website.

Authenticate hologram 1. When you look at the hologram on the label, you should see the Nokia connecting hands symbol from one angle and the Nokia Original Enhancements logo when looking from another angle. 2. When you angle the hologram left, right, down and up, you should see 1, 2, 3 and 4 dots on each side respectively. Successful completion of the steps is not a total assurance of the authenticity of the battery. If you cannot confirm authenticity or if you have any reason to believe that your Nokia battery with the hologram on the label is not an authentic Nokia battery, you should refrain from using it, and take it to the nearest Nokia authorised service centre or dealer for assistance.

Cell phones are powered by batteries, which must be recharged every so often. After a while, the battery in your cell phone may no longer hold a charge. If this happens, you will need to replace the battery. There is a way to test whether your battery has a strong charge, a functional charge, or no charge at all. You can do this with a device called a multimeter (which measures volts, amperes, watts, and ohms). You can purchase a multimeter at an electronics store or on line-Turn your cell phone on and check the bars in the corner of your screen. If you only have one bar, its time to charge your phone. If your battery has been working well, recharging it is probably all you need to do. Flip your cell phone over and remove the battery if you have been experiencing low-battery problems even after recharging. Locate the metal contacts on the battery. Look at the label on the battery to see what the voltage number is for your particular battery. The normal top voltage for a cell phone battery is 3.4 to 4.5 volts. Also see if the battery shows the optimum amperage (milli-Amp hours or "mAh") which can be around 900 mAh. Turn on your multimeter and place the red (positive) wire contact on the "+" contact on your cell phone battery. Then place the black (negative) wire contact on the "-" contact on the battery. Read the meter. If the meter reads 3.0 volts or higher, your battery is pretty much fully charged. This means that your battery is still in excellent condition. If the meter reads between 2.4 and 2.9 volts, your battery is functional and will last a little longer. Any reading under 2.4 volts and it is time to get a new battery. Try your phone to see if the battery is holding its charge properly after recharging. If the voltage reading is high but the battery is still not working well, Set the multimeter to read amperes and connect the positive and negative contacts as for testing voltage. If the reading is much lower than the mAh noted on the battery, then the battery's storage capacity might have declined, and it is time to replace...

you look at the hologram on the label, you should see the battery manufacturer symbol from one angle and the manufacturer Original Enhancements logo when looking from another angle.
