How to Install More Fonts to and use them Free

*REQUIREMENTS*

The Flip font app creates a folder in your phone’s C: drive, this is where all the fonts will be stored and used application by the application.

When the above are ready in your phone, then you can proceed with Steps on how you can add the free fonts below:
1. Open the X-plore, and use it to locate where you downloaded/saved the 65 fonts file in your E: drive (memory card)
2. Open/Unzip it, you see a list of Fonts. The first font file format ends with .in2 and second ends with .ttf
e.g : Alleycat.in2
         Alleycat.ttf

TTF are basically the file extension or file format in which symbian fonts run on the device as seen in my screenshot below:

 

3. Mark the first font (e.g Alleycat.in2)  by Pressing Menu > Mark > Selected
Do the same for the second

Hint 1: You may also mark them by Holding your ( # ) and Select button

4. After marking both, Press Menu  >> File >> Extract to…

                                                                                                                     

Now, go to your C: Drive >> data >> Flip font , then Press Select button to Extract the selected font files

Hint 2: Ensure you don’t press the Select button until you get to the Flip font folder so as not to Extract the fonts to the wrong folder.

To navigate and open folders in X-plore, use your navigation button but don’t press the middle key (select button) till you get to the right folder when extracting files, otherwise, like  i said before, it may send it to the wrong place.

5. If you have succesfully extracted the font files to the Fonts folder
You can now open the Flip Font application, click Get Started, Scroll  down, you’ll see the Name of the Font you just added via X-plore.

 

6. Select Use this font, close the Application

 

7. Switch phone off and On again to start using the font.

Enjoy!!!
