Hard reset asha 201

Hello, I have tried hard resetting my Nokia asha 201 with key combination (the only way I can do it). I used shift+backspace+space+red/drop call; and tried 3+*+green/pick up call+red/drop call while turning on phone. But none of them seem to work. What is the key combination to hard reset it?

Re: Hard reset asha 201

ONLY solution is a visit to Nokia Care along with a proof of ownership (Bill / Invoice)

But if you bring it to a private repair shop they are able to do it... And you don't even need proof of purchase.

Private shops are private.. That's your decision to choose which way to go. Nokia Care won't usually ask for a proof of purchase, but it may in case they feel that its a stolen phone.

Well, for one - there are no local care centers for me. Second - my point was that I really would like to know the method they use, rather than pay the money...

My asha 201 does not have the inbox on messages and freezes when I try to log onto the internet. I have updated my software several times but still no help. Any other options that I can use?

Re: Hard reset asha 201

How can we be prompted to visit Nokia Care Centers to get assistance to hardreset nokia asha 201 while the nokia Care Centers are not distributed everywhere but their products are sold everywhere. and how special is the asha 201 to have have such restrictions while other expensinve handsets are easy to hardreset

Re: Hard reset asha 201

You can factory reset your phone (from the settings). The point was on how to override the pass lock, and only a Nokia care centre will be of help on those cases.
