Should i formate my phone ??how please help me out friends asap. Is there any new update for N79 ? i have checked for updates through the device manager but it shows updates not available.....
Thanks & Regards,
Would suggest that you backup essential data with Nokia Suite and return device to "as new condition" by keying in *#7370# followed by 12345 (default Nokia lock code unless altered by user) to exclude any possible software corruption.
If I've helped in any way, a click upon the white kudos star would always be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply..i have followed your suggestion but the problem solved for only 2-3 days again my phone unlokcs it self automatically & starts rotating screen, starts its fornt camera automatically......what should i do now ?phone is out of warrenty

Thank you for posting and welcome to the forum.
Since the hard reset didn't work and since there's no update available for your phone, you can consider re-installing the software of your phone through Nokia Suite.
Following are basic steps on how you can reinstall your phone's software.
Before installing a software update or reinstalling your current device software we recommend performing a backup of your data:
To restore the data from a backup go into Nokia Suite, select Tools > Restore and follow the wizard to restore your data.

Hi, after you backed up & reformatted your phone did you restore your backup? If so then perhaps it also reinstalled the problem. You could retry to return to factory conditions again & then reinstall the backup individually, (contacts first) then see how you go over the course of several days, if it's OK move onto the next item in the backup & restore that.
