The good news is that the software can be downloaded from the iMobile.com.au - but, with it being shareware, there is some sort of "protection" which differs it from the full version. With each logo that is sent using the demo version, the word "demo" is included on the top left-hand corner of each logo sent to a Nokia phone. After registration, this disappears.
In order to use the LogoManager software, you will need either a data cable that will connect up the phone with your computer's serial port, or an
infrared (IR) port - where both computer and phone must both have an IR port to communicate. On various models, only one of each can be used - whereby, on others, both data cable and IR can be used.
The current version of LogoManager (version 1b) supports all platforms of Microsoft Windows up to 2000 (95/98/NT/2000) and can utilise both the generic IR driver and the new IrdA stack that is included in pro-98 versions of the OS. Previously, LogoManager was not able to make use of the IrdA stack in the versions of Windows that had it - which led to frustration in getting the phones to connect through the IR port.
Logo Design and Uploading
LogoManger allows the user to design a new logo or edit an existing one that may have been previously saved or downloaded from other sites. Where the logo has been loaded onto the computer, it can be uploaded (or sent) to the phone after a connection has been established with the handset itself (either through the data cable or IR port). LogoManager also allows you to download (or retrieve) the existing logo that is on the phone already.
The logo design tools are quite good compared to some of the other software packages that offer similar functions (such as Kessler's Group Graphics Editor and Operator Logo Editor softwares). I, previously, am a user of Kessler's software because LogoManager did not exist in those days.
