Nokia 500 Hard Reset

How do you hard reset the Nokia 500?

 

People say to press the camera button but there is NO CAMERA BUTTON. Someone please clarify.

Re: Nokia 500 Hard Reset

To hard reset your Nokia 500
you just have to press
*#7370# and press Dial. The
phone will request the security
code that is by default 12345.
Please be aware that you will loose all the data in your
phone, so you should backup
all relevant information. If you
want to soft reset your Nokia
500 you need to press
*#7780# and then Dial. The security code is 12345. Once
you complete this, your phone
will come back to factory
settings, but you will not loose
personal data. Anyway it is
recommended to make a backup before performing any
of the mentioned procedures
