Hard Reset Nokia N97

Hold the left shift key, the space bar and the back key then the power key, hold them until the device asks for the country etc.

If your device fails to boot up or gives a contact the retailer message then a hard format on boot will usually sort the problem.

WARNING doing a hard reset will DELETE all user data on the device memory, including contacts, calendar entries and any apps etc you have installed to C: drive, your mass memory/memory card will remain unaffected so any data will still be there, however you may have to reinstall some-apps even if they are installed to mass mem/mem card. so please backup your data before doing this

Re: Hard Reset Nokia N97

What is the point in this topic?

It's not answering a users question and will soon fall off the front page so what is the point?

Searching the forum will find the answer as it's been posted before so again what is the point in this?

Awarding yourself the solution to something that isn't even a question is considered cheating on this forum.

Re: Hard Reset Nokia N97

It's still pointless as it's not connected to a users question.

In future please stick to answering posts, save your guide as a template to answer specific questions.

This board is not the correct place for guides like this.

Another user spammed guides like this all over the forum last month, all were removed.

Re: Hard Reset Nokia N97

i didn't spam anything all over the forum, just chose the right forum about the topic, may be it should be moved to pool of knowledge , moderators decide that

Re: Hard Reset Nokia N97

Zoro, I believe the point is that as many posts alreadt exist already on the forum regarding this information, it is somewhat pointless repeating it, and it is advisable to tell people to use the User Search tool at the top of the page. Repeating a subject, in effect 'cloggs up' the forum and actually makes it harder for people to find a particular solution, as there search simply turns up an even greater number of answers.

Continue enjoying the forum, and giving good advice :smileywink:

Well said carman58, hopefully zoro06 will understand the point now that you've put it that way.

 

Great use of a wink too :smileywink:
