guys if i made a hard reset using the code *#7370#
would this affect my installed app on the
memory card( E)??
if so so do i have to delete some folders like (program files)
i used to have a windows phone 6.1 and every time i hard reset it it clears every thing even the installed app on memory card so i just go to my file manger and deldete the folder of program files and reinstall the app nice and easy without any corruptions :smileyhappy:
would this method work for my E72????

Re: This is how you Hard Reset your E72 - push button method

If applications have been installed on memory card and you hard reset device these applications should be re-installed upon inserting memory card. Presumably as you suspect corrupt data you have not created a backup to memory card?

Re: This is how you Hard Reset your E72 - push button method

well i would not prefer to have a full backup of the whole memory because it may restore some system data files that used to have some bad behavior or corrupted so i prefer to reinstall the app but do i have to format also my memory card or if there is a program files folder that i could delete!!??

There's a Soft Reset code *#7780# which restores factory settings but doesn't erase other information from phone memory.

 

There's also a Hard Reset code *#7370# which formats the phone memory (I think).

 

Is there a difference between issuing the Hard Reset code *#7370# versus using the Hard Reset 3-finger (4-finger?) salute (Capslock-Space-Backspace  + Power-On)?

Yes, absolutelly. With hard reset you do not need to know your security code on the phone.

Re: This is how you Hard Reset your E72 - push button method

Hi guys, dont know if this is the right place to ask this question:

 

i got nokia E72 white, i recently have a problem with one of my email account (hotmail) my Inbox is gone blank and its not receiving/syncing any email anymore.

 

other folder sync fine i-e sent items etc but Inbox is blank.

 

Other email addresses are fine, i did try to add another hotmail address and thats working absolutely fine.

 

so its a specific account having problem, others are fine.

 

Actions taken so far:

remove mailbox and try to re-add

apply factory settings

done hard reset *#7370# and shift-space-back space reset

 

nothing worked, problem stays in place.

Please advise if you can.

Thanks.

Re: This is how you Hard Reset your E72 - push button method

I need to SW-reset a Nokia E72 here.

I am well known of the two reset codes (*#7370# and *#7780#), and use them a lot.

But - to use the *#7370# code, you need to know the phonelock-code.

This code is unknown to me, when last user at our firm recently qwuit his job!

Is there any other way to totaly wipe this device?
