Restore Ovi Files and Ovi Contacts back on to the E55

Hi guys, I was messing around with my phone, and accidently deleted the Ovi Files and Ovi Contacts icons/apps from the phone. But now I have no idea how to get them back.

 

I can't find any answers or support on this anywhere :-(

 

I tried a reset, but that just did the settings...would a hard reset restore the phone back to it's original state? (programs/apps and all) if so, then how?

 

Thanks for reading.

You can reinstall the firmware on the E55 with Nokia Software Updater.

Hmm I've been trying this :-( but the update fails. I get a message telling me the device has lost connection. and to turn off and on, then try again. same thing happens! I'm using USB cable.

 

I'm scared of bricking it now.

 

*Edit

 

I think  it may have something to do with encryption. I shall try in abit.

Hmm. In that case I suggest you reset the E55. Dial *#7370# 12345 reformat, you'll lose all data. Make a backup first and restore without the settings. Keep in mind that OVI files and contacts are a online service.

Thanks for the code, I shall try that next.

 

But just before I do it, will any software that was preinstalled on the phone, be loaded back on? as in, Advanced communication manager. It's third party, but was on the phone when I bought it.

Log in to OVI with a PC and check the settings.

Hi, you can reinstall the Ovi Files widget from https://files.ovi.com/wrt/fl/downloadw

 

and the Ovi Contacts application from http://betalabs.nokia.com/apps/ovi-contacts

Thanks gabriele, those are what I was looking for. It seems factory resets, don't essentially restore the phone to how it is received "from factory".
