How do I factory reset a 6230i?

[ Edited ]
Before you write to me that I use `*#7370#`, that does not work on this phone. So, how can I factory reset the phone? It's not a settings reset I'm after.

Not possible to do by yourself, you'd have to take it to a service centre/point.
First use the search to see if your question has already been answered...
Secondly I will not knowingly assist in breaking the forum rules.
My information is always changing, what I post at the time is usually true.

Hmm.. I wonder why the change in policy regarding not allowing thr user to fully re-format the phone to ROM defaults.

Before an argument starts here, I'm sure what '6280' meant to say is that it has never been possible to format series 40 phones like the 6230i. Only Symbian phones eg the N-series can be formatted.

Re: How do I factory reset a 6230i?

Oh, I'm not arguing. Never planned an argument. When I called Nokia Technical support the tech guy (not CLubNokia staff) was rather puzzled so he went to try the master reset code on a phone. It's interesting that Nokia Technical were thrown by this one. I'm curious why there is no master reset implement on the 6230i. It would be one way os solving quite a lot of problems, especially when the phone is out of warranty and there is a software fault discovered where the owner then has to pay to get a fault with the software fixed. If it was simply to have newer firmware for the sake of it then I would not mind paying. If it's to fix an actual fault than I would be a little irked if I was forced to pay for a upgrade for the latter reason after the waranty expires.
