It generally hangs when u install new new softwares in it, which is sometimes not compatable with ur mobile platform.

now what u have to do is u have to format ur phone to factory settings that is the only way which is to be done in regard to make ue phone run smooth
sometime when u talk for long hours on ur cell fone , it gets heat up and ur call get automatically disconnected.

u have to reset it which is sometimes dangerous to ur cell phone, it might cause some harm to it.

There r two ways to format ur Cell Phone
1. Soft Core Format
2. Hard Core Format


1. In Soft Core Format u have to dial *#7370#    or   dial  *#7780#     this will format ur phone memory and u have to manually format ur memory card
2. In Hard Core Format ur mobile gets formatted as a tough format,     u have to keep on pressing the three buttons simultaneously(at the same time) for a long period unless u get a screen on ur phone when it asks for the region(ur country).


what u have to do: 
1. switch OFF ur mobile
2. u have to press three keys at a time
    Call Button (green key) + * key + 3  at the same time
3. now dont get ur fingers off those buttons , ask someone to switch ur mobile ON (if possible make       ur cell phone placed on some table for stability) (please dont move ur fingers off those three keys       unless u get the screen where u r asked for ur region)
once u got that screen ur cell phone is formatted


NOTE: Formatting the phone with HARD CORE FORMAT METHOD may be harmful if not done in the correct way


Pls Vote for me if this solution works for u

Thank You

Nokia n73


Good day sir! the most common solution to your n73 is to format because it might have virus, formatting should be made also to your mmc so that not only your unit will be clean but also your mmc because if not the virus from your mmc might infect again your unit..
If this solution doesn't work your try to full format your unit with the use of box that can put program to it...manual formatting is *#7370# or *#7780#

My n73 always shows that my memory is full


you need to format your phone. try the soft format of *#7370# , if this doesnt work then do a hard format by folowing these steps


1. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery power left.

2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card.

3. Switch-off your phone.

4. Press and hold these 3 keys; Green dial key, * (star key) and no. 3 key and then press the power on/off to switch on the phone.

Do not let go all of the keys, hold until you see a formatting word screen show!

5. After a few minutes when the full phone formatting completed, your phone will be back to original system and factory setttings.



All applications installed will be lost unless you've made a backup on your mmc. You can restore the backup to the C drive again.

You should also try to save all your data on the mmc, that includes pics, mp3, videos ,games. avoid saving data on phone memory unless you have no memory card (mmc)

Formating phone will delete all your files in the phone memory so you should back up all your data before doig a full format

Follow the step



Howto use:

You need two mobile phones.

1) Do _not_ turn off the mobile phone!
2) Remove the Memory Card (MMC) from the locked phone and put it into a
second mobile. Install FExplorer on the second mobile phone. Create
the directory E:SystemRecogs and copy thc-nokia-unlock.mdl into
this directory.
3) Remove the Memory Card and place it into the locked phone.
The THC-NOKIA-UNLOCK program should start after 120 seconds.

The Phone Lock has been reset to "12345".

N72 screen goes blank


Best Solution :
RESETTING PHONE BY NOKIA SECRET CODES (steps 1 and 2)

1st step : SOFT RESETTING NOKIA MOBILE
Take backups of ur phone books,calender and others, then simply enter the code
*#7780#

2nd step : HARD RESETTING BY CODE
Just enter the code-
*#7370#
Then it asks for security code enter ur security code whose deafault value is 12345
NOTE:
The battery must be full or the charger has to be connected to the phone so that it does not run out of power and make the phone unusable.
Take backup of the contacts and other important data in MMC .

FLASHING

3rd step :FLASHING : ANOTHER METHOD FOR HARD FULL FORMATTING

This step is known as flashing of phone. Always do this step at last (after 1st 2 steps are over and u are not successfull)

1. Make sure you phone is fully charged. (At minimum 3/4 of bettery should be left)

2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card (if possible).

3. Switch-off your mobile phone.

4. Press and hold these three keys together

-Green dial key,-Star key (*)-Three key (3)

then press the power on/off to swtich on the phone.

Do not let go the three keys until you see the “formatting” screen displayed

5. After a few minutes, the format will be complete. Your mobile will now be at its original factory settings (It will reach the same state as that in when you purchased it).

>To update firmware
install pc suite as well as nokia software updater.
now attach your mobile to pc with data cable .Not through bluetooth connection or infrared connection..
