Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

Hey, I'm having a problem with my E5. I keep having these "memory full" warnings, even though I've transfered the apps, media stuff, to the memory card, but it's getting to the point where I cannot write SMS because of "insificient space", or update the software, or even make backups through Ovi. Should I hard-reset the phone, or is there another way around this?

@ glenellevrx..... E5 doesn't read virus file .There may be any other problem in YOUR phone. Try hard reset press *#7370# but doing it before keep backup date with Nokia suite

Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

No Reset will reset the Password (Security Code) .. It can be done ONLY thru' Nokia Care. A proof of ownership (Bill / Invoice) may be asked ..

@arvk20

 

The required key combination to "hard reset" E5 has never been verifed or perhaps this feature was overlooked when writing the software for some reason!

Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

Why not use *#7370# followed by 12345 (default Nokia lock code unless altered by user) to return device to factory settings, then if necessary use option to re-install existing device software in Nokia Suite > Tools > Software updates?

Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

For a factory reset, has anyone tried:
Menu (house sign)
Control Panel
Settings
General
Scroll down to Factory Reset?

Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

odviously we have tried that. Ive LIVED in there for the past three months. Ive got some things I HAVE to get off the phone, I even removed all my email and had 16 megs free space but when I re added one addy it put two back in and within moments was out of memory. Deleted all the emails and by the next day have ZERO memory left on the phone. Im ready to drive it over with a car.  Surely there must be SOMETHING that might work?  I do suspect it may be the email but cant even get in to look now.

Re: Nokia E5-00 Hard Reset!

You can do a full reset with *#7370# - but you must include the asterisk (*) as well - i.e. Type *#7370# then dial the green button. Default passcode is then 12345. Seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boCUvbU4zMg Confirmed on my Australian E5.
