Re: NOKIA 500 reset

There is no other way to just Factory Reset the device. Without the Security code you may be able to perform a Hard Reset which will wipe all data from the Phone memory. Also note that the Hard Reset will erase some important System files that affects the functioning of GPS. Hence, your best go is to get the Code reset to its default 12345 by visiting Nokia Care along with a proof of ownership (Bill /Invoice)
