I asumme you have a Nokia Phone. Maybe changing: Configs > Phone > Security block

Or even try the generic code "1234" (without cuotes) or "12345"

See White Screen + Nokia Logo + Failed to Start contact Retailer


Hi there,

Try formatting your phone and see if it works.
First make sure your phone is turned off.Then press the following buttons simultaneously (at the same time:

Power button + * + 3

This will restore and reformat your phone into factory settings. Hopefully your phone will be able to start again as if it were being used the first time from the box.

Let me know if it works,

Hope I have been of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

Nokia 3230 restarting after installing Netqin


yes you can soft format [factory reset] your phone by pressing *7730# and entering your security code[default 12345] or weather you want to HARD FORMAT, switch off your mobile phone 1st, then press and hold 3 keys at a time star key, green dial key, and no. 3 key. then switch on your phone.
do not unhold all three key's until nokia's logo come's [hand shake] . it's done. you have to select your city. mean's your phone is virus free now.
[get backup of your contacts and messeges before formatting or you will lose your data]

Formatting the memory card
When a memory card is formatted, all data on the card are permanently lost.
Some memory cards are supplied pre-formatted and others require formatting.
Consult your retailer to find out if you must format the memory card before you
can use it.
• Select Options→ Format mem. card.
Select Yes to confirm. When formatting is complete, enter a name for the
memory card (max. 11 letters or numbers).

Backing up and restoring information
To back up information from your phone’s memory to the memory card, select
Options→ Backup phone mem.
To restore information from the memory card to the phone’s memory, select
Options→ Restore from card.
You can only back up the phone memory and restore it to the same phone.

Locking the memory card
To set a password to lock your memory card to help prevent unauthorised use,
select Options→ Set password.
You are asked to enter and confirm your password. The password can be up to
eight characters long.

Your rating would be most appreciated.

Problem is""phone star-up failed. contact the retailer"


The best solution for this problem is to format the phone memory. U may think format will erase all applications but it is false . The essential softwares like mp3 player, camera, etc. are not erased.
The process for format of phone is :
1) turn off the mobile.
2) press and hold ( green dial button + 3 keypad + * ) and turn on the phone holding these 3 buttons(dial button + 3 + *) until formatting screen appears.
3) When formatting screen appears, just leave the keys. and ur phone is formatted now.
4) When finished, it asks for restart of phone.
5) Restart ur phone, and ur phone is ready.

How can i format my nokia3230


Just to make the suggestion a bit clearer, 1. switch phone off, probably take out the battery if the power button doesn't work. 2. hold down call (green), 3 and * all at the same time. best with right hand. 3. turn phone on. with left hand. 4. wait a bit and phone will come up with formatting. does take a bit, so be patient.
