Provided that you backup all essential data first, key in *#7370# followed by 12345 (default Nokia lock code unless altered by yourself) which will return device to "Out of box" state.

Re: How to completely uninstall a program?

keep in mind, that this is going to reformat your device and wipe all your data.

which will make you reinstall all your applications.

so best to figure out what application you have installed first to determine what you should do.

Re: How to completely uninstall a program?

I'd also like to uninstall the app Lotus Notes from the model E71. I have actually done it - There are two parts of this app (the app itself and a bug reporting tool), and I removed both. The process went without error and I got the message that the app was removed. But when the phone is restarted, the app is again there!!!!!! Just how is that possible? If all the files related to the app were removed, how (and why) did they come back automatically? Does that mean the phone is telling me lies about what it's removed? How do I get rid of this app? It came pre-installed. Like the OP, I do not wish to format just to remove one app. Thank you.

Re: How to completely uninstall a program?

@hadimassa Thanks for the link, it worked. In short, in order to prevent the automatic installation of the Lotus Notes, you need to move or delete its installer file (a sisx file in "C:/Software"). You need to use an external file manager app like X-plore or Y-browser to access that file.

Correction. Oops, the folder is "C;/installations" in my previous post.
