Symbian phone file browser ActiveFile lets you into the folders that Symbian's built-in file manager tries to hide, can send protected files over bluetooth, and comes with extras like a screenshot function, task manager, battery and memory monitors, phone restarter, and an option to send fake SMSs to your own phone inbox.
The latest version has new colors, less bugs, is faster, and can backup (and restore) your SMS folders.
The "fake SMS" feature has a very small bug, and the SMS backup feature doesn't work on any of my phones. Maybe that will be fixed in a future version.
You need to hack your phone or "sign" ActiveFile with a developer certificate for full functionality. There are also signed and "open signed" versions, but the developer version can do a lot more. To unleash the full potential of ActiveFile, set your copy of Symbian free.
