Reserve your Nokia Account name now

This might not sound like it's connected to N-Gage, but bear with us because it is. There's now something called Nokia Account which provides easier access to Nokia's online services. At the moment it's just used by a few of the services, but it should eventually expand to cover them all, and that would probably include N-Gage Arena. For that reason N-Gagers ought to register a Nokia Account username now, to make sure they get the one they want.

Read on in the full article.

You don't need to do the phone if you've already done e-mail confirmation, it just says e-mail OR phone number.

I think they've done it that way because some people are registering for Nokia Account by mobile, so for them a text may be easier than an e-mail.

At the moment the only proper service that uses Nokia Account is Nokia Chat:

http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/chat

However, eventually all of Nokia's services (presumably including N-Gage) will use Nokia Account which is why it's worth getting in early now to get your favourite username. We don't know when the big switchover will be, but when it happens this will be the account system they use.

i know you can just verify one or the other but getting both verified is easier as they will contact u by phone also if there is any info they sent out which is better for me when working.
I tried verifying Phone number before Email it did'nt work no Text,
it probably as to be done via phone browser thats why no text was ever sent.

Did you put your phone number in its international form, with the + and your country code? And did you make sure the first 0 was removed from the actual number?

For example if there was a british number 012345678, its international form would be +4412345678

You can still your phone number to the profile even without verifying through it. If you log in at account.nokia.com and then click on "my info", there's a section for your phone number.

yes i did all that.
i know you can still put a phone number ,but unless you verify phone number you wont be contacted with news & info via that method.
go to edit profile it tells you "you still have unverified contact methods" then scroll down to Email or phone number and the option to verify is there on which ever ones are unverified .

I think your best bet is to wait until Nokia Accounts is used with a wider range of services, then try the verification again. They're not likely to send you any information until then anyway.

I have several Nokia related accounts also, so this is a long time overdue, however, the one account I do not have is the "My Nokia". I just tried to create a new account, but the site is down for maintenance work.

Thanks for the heads up on registering. I registered my name even though I dont even own a compatible phone yet.
Have a bit of confusion though. What services apart from N-gage & IM will use the nokia account ?

It will likely be used by other Nokia online services. I imagine eventually any Nokia service will look to use these. (e.g. Ovi services like Share Online or Nokia Maps)

According to the Nokia Account help page, all of them!

Here's what they say:

"Nokia Account is your key to the growing collection of Nokia services. Soon you no longer need to keep track of multiple user IDs and passwords: your Nokia Account provides you with access to all the Nokia services."
