N97 widgets missing from add content

hoping someone can help. had some problems with my phone, trying to setup the home screen again. 2 applications in particular were compatible as a widget - facebook and news.com.au - are now no longer appearing as a selection. i dont recall if accuweather is a widget but can not get that appearing in the list either.

 

hoping somone can help!

Re: N97 widgets missing from add content

if they have gone missing, you can go to the ovi store and at least get the accu and facebook ones. i am not sure about the third one you listed.

Re: N97 widgets missing from add content

i ave already downloaded them from the ovi store.

the install fine and can be used as a "shortcut". the problem is it is not selectable as a "widget" hope that makes a little more sense.

Re: N97 widgets missing from add content

yes that is mighty strange. do you have the latest firmware update ? the only thing i can think of for you to do is try the first two codes and see if it helps any at all. i have not heard of this issue yet. this is the first. you have the apps but they dont show in the widget selection. read carefully every single point. 

 

 

 

1. *#7780# - Restore factory settings - resets all the settings to the default ( you will not lose any data)
Make sure you back up your data as you will lose all of it when you perform option 2 or 3 on this list. The default code for ALL operations listed here is 12345

2. *#7370# - Reformat your phone (out of the box, tho keep in mind that most newer nokia phones at least n series, e series and s60 based phones have udp - user data preservation so not ALL data may be lost. still it is a good idea to always do a back up of your stuff.)

3. This you perform as a last resort. Nothing else is working.If the phone is not showing any activity, proceed with hard formatting , turn off your phone, hold the following buttons while pressing the power button. (the default code is 12345)
hard reset - hold the following buttons *, 3 (number button) and talk/green key. turn on the phone and do not release those buttons until you see the Nokia boot up screen. once you feel the phone power up you can let go off the power button while still holding all three buttons ( for Nokia 5800XM - use the following buttons to do a hard reset, GREEN/RED/CAMERA keys pressed all at once on power up. this will only work on 5800's that have firmware version 20... and up. )

If these codes are not working the only thing for you to do is contact your Nokia Care Center/Service for assistance.

Awesome! were not thinking it would be such an easy fix to be honest, *#7780# (step 1) did the trick!

I'm a bit lost here. In order to install a widget you have to reset your phone to factory settings?
