Update:

 

I think that the *#7370# does format the SIM memory card, but I think there are tools to recover files after that.

 

Much as there are tools to recover lost files after a hard disk format on a computer. Right? Which tools can be used for the Nokia E71 SIM card? Thanks again.

well if you had numbers stored on the sim card then those remain untouched, its everything else that is gone unless you did a back up which you claim you did not. there is no such thing for a sim card. at least that i know of .

Actually, both the SMS and the phone numbers were gone. I thought that *#7370# was a soft reset without data loss, yet I lost all SMS and phone numbers as said. I did the soft reset because the Nokia E71 was stuck after the PIN password sometimes and I had to try several times to enter. It is a new phone with just a few days of use.

 

Anyway, I am most interested on recovering the SMS data if that is possible. I was thinking on something like this:

 

How to recover a deleted SMS

http://www.dekart.com/howto/howto_sim_reader/how_to_recover_a_deleted_sms

 

So, the question seems to be: does *#7370# on the Nokia E71 deletes the SMS data, or does it only mark them as deleted? It the latter, it should be possible to recover them. And then, how?

 

Thanks again.

*#7780# this is the code for the soft reset/restore factory settings and leave user data intact. you have used the hard reset code. sorry i missed to mention that in the previous post. in this case all your info is gone as it should be

Thanks. I did not do

 

*#7780#

 

 

What I did was:

 

*#7370#

 

Has anyone tried to use SIM recovery applications to recover lost SMS under such circumstances (after #7780#)? Thanks again.
