Yes there is...

At the standby screen type the code:
*#7370#

or hold down the following 3 buttons when you first switch the handset on:
[Green, pick up call] + [3, def] + [*+]

Be warned this will delete all information on the handset and return the handset to a 'fresh out of the box' state. All contacts, installed applications, calender entries etc will be lost.

If you want a soft reset then there is another code:
*#7780#

This code will rewrite a few system files but doesn't peform a full format like the other two codes above.

*EDIT* Make sure you have a full battery when reformatting a phone.

Re: Master Reset 3230

Not sure that is correct for Nokia 3230 and other models. I have spoken with a software house who informs me that even with Master Reset the "physical data" is not lost at all. All that takes place is the "memory allocation table" removes files accessible by the user.

They mentioned to me terms of "memory dump" and "permenant memory" can recover user data.

Re: Master Reset 3230

follow the steps mentioned by steve and your phone should be like new. Perform the hard format. Will erase all dat from your phone and will be like the way you got it when you purchased it.

Re: Master Reset

If you cannot do the soft reset (dialling), you can try the hard reset. Should be holding the call - 3 - * button in while powering on.

If you have re-formatted the C:\Drive than ALL data has been erased unfortunately.

You probably have a data connection running in the background.

 

@meesamraza

 

There is neither "hard reset" code for S40 device nor master lock code if you have forgotten lock code.
