Format/Hard Reset Phone On Boot Up
It's always a good idea to do a format once every few month or even when you first get your new S60 device.
There is two ways to do a hard format to the device memory:
1). Once the device is powered on and at the home screen type *#7370# and then enter your security code (Default code is 12345) and then your device will restart and reset.
2). To do a hard reset on S60v1/v2/v3 devices follow this step
* For Nokia 5230, 5530 & 5800, follow the step below
- Hold the green and red call keys, the camera capture key and then the power key, hold them untill the device boots up and asks for country etc.
If you own a Nokia N97 then the second option is:
- Hold the left shift key, the spacebar and the back key then the power key, hold them until the device asks for the country etc.
If your device fails to boot up or gives a contact the retailer message then a hard format on boot will usually sort the problem.
Doing a hard reset will DELETE all user data on the device memory, including contacts, calendar entries and any apps etc you have installed to C: drive, your mass memory/memory card will remain unaffected so any data will still be there, however you may have to reinstall some apps even if they are installed to mass memory or memory card. Make sure that you back up everything to an mmc card if possible & that the battery is fully charged because if not the phone might off and get damaged!!!
