Shorcuts to SIM contacts (for feature pack 1 and older) and themes (for feature pack 2 and newer)

SIM directory

Nokia phones with Symbian S60 3rd ed. feature pack 2 can display contacts from your phone memory and your SIM card at the same time, but on phones with feature pack 1 (or without feature pack) you have to dig deep down in the options menu to see your SIM contacts.

Or you can install the Python application SIM directory. This simple piece of code which floats all over the Symbian forums puts an icon on your phone for direct access to your SIM contacts.

Themes Launcher

On newer (feature pack 2) Nokia phones the shortcut to the Themes settings disappeared from the Settings folder. You can still get there the long way (Settings, General, Personalisation, Themes), or can you can bring the Themes shortcut back with the (not very new) program Themes Launcher.
