I used my phone extensively for a little more than a couple of years. Yesterday night the battery died and I connected the charger and started it. I got an error on startup saying "Contact Service".
Any idea what the problem could be and how to resolve it ?
I heard this sort of thing is normally solved by a firmware reflashing. But I need my contacts and calendar. Any way out ?
Only thing you can try is remove the battery for a couple of minutes.. Insert and switch the phone ON... If the problem persists then only other thing that can solve the issue is a visit to Nokia care.. but, as you have mentioned, you will lose all your data...
I already tried the removing battery thing. Didn't work.
Firmware was updated to the latest version only a few months back at service. And this happened all of a sudden. My network bar turned zero when I was travelling and I presumed it was because of bad connectivity. Reached home and connected the charger and restarted the phone. Got the contact service error.
Any idea why this sort of thing happened ?
Sorry..but not aware of the cause.. Just another thought.. Switch the phone ON without the SIM... and then with...
..If you need to go to the Nokia Care.. ask them if they have the answer to your query..
