Your phone being an S40..its not possible to do Soft / Hard Resets..Remove the battery and the Memory Card.. Insert only the battery and switch the phone ON.. See for any difference... Switch OFF..insert the Memory card.. then try again..
Last you may try re-installing the firmware...
I have the same problem, there is no way to connect a phone and make it work, it says ovi suite/pc suite does not support your phone please reconnect usb, or reinstall software... what is the problem with it ?
Its a bit wierd...
You may try the Nokia Software Updater ..
... and would also request you to post the issue of OVI Suite (Beta) at the Beta Labs site..
It is impossible to reinstall software, because it says that phone is not supported. What did Nokia do with this software ? It's the first time that happends.... I mean, obviously i'm not the only case. Alot of things are missing from applications, calculator, browser are among, pictures cannot be opened, it just won't save preferences or anything.... I have to say, i'm largely dissapointed.

@kolbas,,same thing happened with me too..!! i vl show my mobile in service center within a few days..hope that they fix the problem soon..!!
This firmware version v10.81 has now actually rendered my camera useless, coz i cant view any pictures i take.... it just keeps saying "please wait" when u try to open a picture, but nothing seems to happen. Is there any way to re-install the previous firmware v9.83?
everthing just went wrong after dl 10.81 ... ! my ovi store is lost ! my brower cant use ! anything i save in my home menu will b lost and need to put it back once i swtich off phone. grrr. cant nokia solve this thing faster ?
Isn't there any way to adress this issue directly to Nokia Corp..??? Coz it looks like lots of us are affected by this.... This Firmware version should be taken off the internet coz it's killing our nokia phones.....
Looks like we may have to find new phone brands that have bug-free firmwares, other than Nokia..!!
Thank god that i read these comments on the new S.W 10.81 ,coz i was going to update my NOKIA 7230 S.W from 9.83 To 10.81 , but when i read these comeent about bad Version i give up updating it . i hope NOKIA Co. develope a new on quickly
NOKIA Co give us 7230-1c driver, so we can reinstall firmware.
OS recognize phone as Nokia Portable Device because of a missing driver.
Hope You'll help us
It is strange that even with the same sw you are not able to update your phone.
The only way then to update your phone is to visit the nearest Nokia Care Point.
