nokia 3120c

Hi, I have a Nokia 3120c that wont stay on, When I turn it on it says start up phone without sim card, When I click accept it shows the joining hands then after a second it starts flashing from the blue back ground to white then goes off after 30 seconds. The phone only started doing this after i got it unlocked at a shop. Does anyone know how i can re install the firmware i have tryied with a usb data cable but the phone wont stay on long enough for it to update or to do a reset. Thanks in advance for your help. .

Re: nokia 3120c

Have you tried powering on the phone without the memory card? Is it works, then probably you need a new memory card. Or, try formatting the card from the PC using a card reader, and then try again.

If none of these things work, then take the phone to the nearest Nokia Care Point. Being an S40 phone, there is very little that you can do by yourself to recover.
