Re: Tutorial on key combo for N97 Hard Reset.

I can only see the lil' white light next to the plug in charger when I charge it using the USB. (lost my wall charger). Aprox after 10 min of charge , the phone turns on, but it does not goes beyonbd the nokia logo. 

I cannot even see the battery bar indicating that the phone is being charged.



pls help, I dont want to send it to nokia repair center, as I am afraid of loosing all my information and all the gamas and apps that I bought from the OVI Store, Which I am certain Nokia will not give me refund for that :smileyfrustrated:
