Hi, whenever I connect a USB cable (even charger) the E72 is locked


The way to button-press Hard Reset your E72 is the SAME as the N97.

Hold these buttons:

- Capslock

- Space

- Backspace

and Press the power on. As usual, keep the buttons pressed and voila!


Switch your phone off.

Then, lay it down on a flat surface

With 3 finger of one hand, keep pressed shift, space bar and back space all at the same time

With one finger of the other hand, press the power on button

Do not release neither the 3 keys nor the power key till you see the nokia shakehands animation

i need the reset code to preform a factory reset

soft resetting :

-Back to factory settings: This should maintain your data (contacts/messages/calendar/notes etc), just returning your N97 back to all previous settings

From menu:
Settings> Phone>Phone Management>Factory Settings

hard resetting:

The traditional method won't work as the N97 doesn't have the old keypad. After you've backed up your data onto memory card/pc/ovi, turn your phone off and simultaneously press these four buttons circled in red.
  • Caps shift
  • Space bar
  • Delete button
  • On button
You'll know it's worked when you see the initial set up screen, asking country of origin.
