How to format nokia 6101


First thing first, not all the Symbian phones can be formatted by the so called "Formatting codes" (Will not work in Series40 phones like Nokia 6300, 7210, 5130 etc and the older Nokia Generic OS based phones like Nokia 1600, 2600 etc). These phones can only be formatted through flashing (Re-installing) their OS software (Firmware) via data cable and computer. Only Symbian S60 (And a few of other series) based mobiles have built-in support for the format codes. So format codes will work in all Symbian^1 (S60 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th edition) phones like Nokia 3650, 3660, 6600, 6630, 6680, 6681, 3230, 7610, 6670, 3250, N70, N72, N73, N75, N76, N77, N78, N79, N80, N81, N82, N83, N85, N86, N90, N91, N92, N93, N95, N96, N97, 5800 and other touchscreen phones plus the newer Symbian^3 phones (Nokia N8, C7 and E7 etc). Now lets begin with formatting process: There are two methods to format the phone depending upon the situation: A. When the phone is in working condition:
Just press any of the following two codes at standby screen *#7780# or
*#7370#
Phone will ask for confirmation and security code (Default security code is 12345), enter it and bingo everything in phone memory will be erased and phone will be back to factory settings.
B.
Hard Reset - When the phone is not starting-up (i.e. not working after white screen or Nokia Logo screen)
- then follow these steps: 1. Switch-off the phone
2. Press and hold following three keys simultaneously (Remember "All the three keys" simultaneously):
Green Key (OK or Number Dialing key), Star key (*) and Three key (3 number key)
3. While still holding the above three keys, press the power on/off key to switch-on the phone.
Still continue holding the three keys until the "formatting" screen appears. Now you can release the keys, confirm if asked and then wait for the format to complete. Now the phone will be restored to its original factory settings. Read HERE to know about hard resetting Nokia N97, 5800, 5230, 5530 and other touchscreen S60 5th edition phones.The above format will reset the phone but most probably will not clear the operator's lock codes.

Follow the instructions below to format Nokia 9300/9500 (Communicators)
1. Restart the phone
2. Just when the "NOKIA" logo appears on screen, PRESS AND HOLD following three keys simultaneously:
Shift (Up Arrow key) + Ctrl + F
3. KEEP HOLDING them until phone prompts you whether or not to proceed with format. If however the format menu does not appear this way then remove and re-insert the battery and try again. If the phone display remains black after inserting the battery, press power button on the phone side while keeping the cover open and repeat the above procedure. After formatting, phone will reboot. If the screen remains white after reboot, press power button on the phone side while keeping the cover open.
NOTE: Before formatting the phone, make sure -
1. That you backup all your phone data to either computer or memory card as formatting will erase everything in phone memory.
2. That the phone's battery is charged fully or is plugged in AC power because if unfortunately, the phone runs out of battery during format, then the phone may get permanently damaged and irreparable.
3. If your phone is infected with a virus (Only applies to 1st and 2nd edition phones) then also format the memory card and scan it with a good computer antivirus like Avast.
I hope that the above instructions will help the needy.

How to format of nokia 9300i


Welcome to Fixya

This process erases from your Nokia 9300 all of your user data and settings, including your phone book, calendar, email, downloads, recordings, and certain factory installed programs such as Instant Messaging and BlackBerry Connect.

REMEMBER: Create a device data backup or synchronization before formatting.
You can restore device data and settings later. See the Nokia 9300 User Guide for further instructions.


STEP 1 - Format the Nokia 9300 memory

* Remove the battery for 10 seconds
* Replace the battery
* Open the Nokia 9300 to view the inside display
* When you see the screen with "NOKIA" in blue text,
* Press and hold the following four keys until a Format Message is displayed:
CRTL + Shift + F
* Confirm the process by selecting Format
* Formatting will begin
* After formatting is complete the Nokia 9300 will reboot with some basic settings. If prompted, accept the request to reboot
* Follow the instructions on your Nokia 9300 to set the time, date and city and to enter your contact information.

STEP 2 - Download the install-cingular-default-603.SIS to a compatible PC.

STEP 3 - Prepare a Multimedia Memory Card (MMC)1

* Transfer the .sis file from your PC to your device using MMC, data cable, Bluetooth or infrared. For instructions see the Nokia 9300 User Guide.

STEP 4 - Install the file install-cingular-default-603.SIS to your Nokia 93002
Note: This step is required to install Cingular specific settings and programs to your Nokia 9300.

* Insert the Multimeda Memory Card created in Step 2 to your Nokia 9300.
* Replace the battery cover (so the Nokia 9300 can read the MMC)
* Open your device, then open the File Manager:
Press the Desk application key
Scroll to and select Office
Scroll to and open File Manager
* Using the arrow keys, scroll to Memory Card
* Highlight the file install-cingular-default-603.SIS
* Press Open to start the installation process
* Follow and accept all prompts and requests
* Reformatting is now complete

(1) You may choose to install the file above using Nokia PC Suite. Please see the Nokia 9300 User Guide for general instructions to install software using Nokia PC Suite, and follow those instructions instead of Step 4 above.

(2) CAUTION: The .sis file above is ONLY intended for use with a Nokia 9300 with the appropriate software version. DO NOT install this file to a Nokia 9300 with any other software version. DO NOT install this file to any other model device.

Have a good one!

Hi There

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
