How to format nokia 5230?

Someone please help me...

I want to completely format my nokia 5230.

I tried in the phone. It is Factory Restore. This does not delete the phone memory.

I want to delete all the contents of the phone. Just like it came when it was new.

 

Please please help. I will be very thankful to you.

Re: How to format nokia 5230?

it's decribed above,

green + red + camera while pressing power button too will make your phone memory like out-of-the-box condition

 

and the memory card, format it using file manager in menu=applications=office=file man.

choose memory card options ..... format

Re: How to format nokia 5230?

Hey,

 

Try these codes:

 

1- *#7780# – Soft Reset Code, It restores the factory setting without affecting your contacts, messages, files etc.It’ll ask for the lock code. The dafult lock code is 12345.

 

2- *#7370# – Hard Reset Code, on entering this code it’ll show you the same message “Restore all original phone settings” but this time it’ll erase all the data stored in the phone memory. So, use it only when some serious software problem occurs such as virus attack.Take phone memory data backup on memory card or PC  before doing hard format.
