I have done a factory reset, and now everything like email, messaging, gallery,active notes contacts, almost everything keeps telling me :
Messaging: Already in use!
Please tell me someone has a quickk answer.
Reset the E71. Dial *#7370# 12345 reformat, you'll lose all data. Make a backup first and restore without the settings.
Yes I have turned it off and removed the battery for 5 mins then for an hour but no joy, I did the reset to format the phone because I thought I had a virus due to the phone periodically and randomly deleting my contacts.
Try the deep reset this time. Remember to backup your phone if you haven't already done so because you will lose your data.
Then try the "3 finger deep reset". With the phone powered off, depress and hold these three keys simultaneously "*" "3" "green phone" and then power on phone using the on/off button whilst keeping the three keys depressed until you hear start-up tone.
