Re: Nokia N73 hanging
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

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#
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. 4) Remove the battery. Remove the MMC. Put the battery back and restart. The Phone Lock has been reset to "12345".
