Hard reset Nokia 6300?

Any way I can do a hard reset on my Nokia 6300 myself? I was told I have to send my phone back to the service centre to be done.

Was playing around with the settings and somehow managed to screw it up. Reset settings from the menu didn't work well.

No, only a service centre can hard reset a series 40 phone.

Your only options are the factory reset, which you have tried or you could try a firmware update/re-install.

Re: Hard reset Nokia 6300?

Yes, hard reset cannot be performed on series 40 devices, as it can be done on series 60.
For a hard reset why I have to go to a care centre is a wonder to me.
Nokia should make this option also for series 40.
The question is risin than previuos times:smileywink:.

Hello psychomania.

Thanks for the reply.

I've tried the firmware reinstall. Thought that might work but didn't. The settings are retained.

Yes...feel damn disappointed to know that I can't hard reset the phone myself. It's in the shop now.

I'm one who likes to play around with the settings with my gadgets and find myself always doing something I shouldn't be doing. ;-) A hard reset always saved the day.

Coming from a Sony Ericsson mobile...I always thought the software on it was lacking... UNTIL I started using this 6300. sigh

Will stick back with SE in future.

Re: Hard reset Nokia 6300?

There is no master reset process for the 6300. If you've forgotten your password you'll need to take your phone to a Nokia care point for assistance.

Re: Hard reset Nokia 6300?

YES! There is no MASTER RESET for Nokia 6300 and SOME OTHER S40 phones. In that case, you will need to send the phone to the Nokia Care Point if it needs repair, same goes to FORGOT THE SECURITY code, there is NO WAY for us to retrieve it.

Re: Hard reset Nokia 6300?

If you read the posts above, its clearly mentioned that you can NOT do anything. If there is no Nokia Care in your region, you may ask the retailer from where you bought the phone or local Mobile repair shops ... and as for 'why nokia is making this so difficult?' ..if its made easier than there is NO point providing this feature at all.. Not just the legitimate user but 'Anyone' can reset the phone and bypass the whole purpose...

If using option to reset device via user interface is not adequate, then visit to Nokia Care facility for device firmware to be re-installed is necessary for this S40 device.

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0
