i experienced this too, below is the steps i solve this problem.
1. switch off and switch on the phone again.
2. in the idle mode, use the dialer, key in *#7370#, this will perform a soft format.
3. key in security code, default would be 12345.
4. the phone's screen will be blank for a few minutes and restart.
5. all data will be cleared during this process, don't remove the battery during the process.
6. after the phone restart, you can use your phone again.
p/s: I don't think you can perform backup before the soft format since the phone will froze after few second switched on. so just perform the soft format after switched on.
I want to try it but i'm afraid, because I'm thinking of returning it back to shop i purchased it to chane it with another C6! Will this format cause any problem to my phone? Will the old thing return? Is it going to be as it was before the format?
Sorry for saying this but nokia fu**ed it up whit this phone. There is nothing good about the c6-01. I have been a dedicated user of nokia phones (3100, N-gage, 6100 series, N97 , E6) for the last 12 years. I needed this phone for work and personal life. I have made a BIG mistake.
There is nothing I can do to get my money back so my problem is:
1. If you make such a bad phone, AND YOU KNOW IT'S BAD (you probably tested it before release), why did you put it on the market ?
2. If you want to deliver quality in a touchscreen phone, WHY oh WHY did you use symbian.
Sorry nokia but you became the worst phone manufacturer ever. And to thing I defended you're mistakes through the years.
Hope you think about this mistake and i hope you will not repeat it whit other phones.
That was a good one except that the CAUTION note should be added that THE PHONE MUST OR SHOULD BE BACKED UP before performing the reset codes. I did it and it worked on my Nokia C6 but I lost all my info. thanks I backed my phone three months ago and that was the best fall back I had!
Really i feel CHEATED by nokia after using this phone.. Its like wastage of 13K.. The only factor which helps Nokia to retain its customer is reliability of its phone.. C6 can be called as "opposite" of reliable.. There can be no problem in world which C6 does not have.. Less battery backup, frequent hang, irritating error messages popping continuously, memory full messages even when a single application is open, menu becoming blank suddenly.. The list is unending.. Name a problem, and C6 already has it.. Was waiting for a year to buy C6.. But now i feel like complete idiot to buy it...I wish Nokia feels pity for its poor C6 users and find some way of fixing all these problems..
good (or bad) to see that i'am not the only one with this problem i think that the store you purchased your nokia c6 should take him back and give you you money back even with abbo.
i think that when you buy a smartphone it should work like one and not only see error bla bla bla
and keep on restarting your phone that is not a smartphone but a enoying pice of **bleep**
( i'm returning mu c6 in two day's hope the store understands my problem hope they had a c6 them self)
I did follow the steps provided, and it's useful, but not as exected. This phone is very slow, with 2G pack, it fails to support 3 internet windows, or browser and ovi client application to gather, i feel Nokia have to provide quick solution to this.
i have a c6-00 from past 2 yr
and in last 1 yr not once have i seen a
"Memory Full" msg on my cell
just flash your cell with a custom rom
its similar to jailbreaking in apple and rooting in android
plz just google these term
