SMS Cleaner - A Fix for the "Curse of Silence" Bug

And so Nokia rolled its sleaves and got into cleaning this irritant...

This application can clean a Nokia S60 3rd Edition (Initial or Feature Pack 1) based device, which may have received a so called “Curse of Silence” SMS message, and thereby restricted from receiving any new SMS messages.

After you have installed the application, it will ask for execution permission. During execution, application attempts to clean received Curse of Silence-messages from your phone. After execution the application will be deinstalled and phone will be restarted.
You can download and install this application in several ways:
  • Input into your phone's browser (where available) to access this page and download SMS Cleaner file directly to your phone and install
  • Download SMS Cleaner to your PC, transfer it to your memory card or phone memory and install the application
  • Download SMS Cleaner to your PC and use Nokia PC Suite to install the application into your phone

Please note that there may be “Curse of Silence” messages queued up in the SMS Center of your Operator Network. In this case you might need to install and run the application again.

Please refer to this Nokia product overview to identify if your product has S60 3rd Edition operating system

And do remeber that only S60 1st Edition are vulnerable to this bug, and it can still be avoided easily...
