Question about Nokia 6288 Cellular Phone

Help me retrieve my contacts

I have a Nokia 6288. It recently stopped working. It's just a black screen. I tested it by dialing my home number on it and the home phone rang. So it works, but i can't see a damn thing. I have a spare phone, but the problem is that all of my contacts are saved to the phone and not the sim. So I was hoping that maybe some wonderful person could patiently write down all of the areas on the phone i need to go into (eg: top left, midde, bottom right middle etc) to save them to sim card. Obviously this has to be spot on. Bit of a challenge really. I know it's in contacts and then names somewhere. If you could test in your phone and write in down for me than that would be awesome. Such a pain in the bum. thanx alot.

I deleted dialed numbers on my Nokia N70 pls help to find them


its not possible to retrieved deleted dialed numbers from your phone because you phone does not have a recycle bin. A computer as recycle bin that's why deleted files are retrieved.

Contact your service provider, they should be able to give you a list of your dialed numbers. Usually, your service provider keeps a record of all your incoming and out going calls.

So try your service provider.

Good luck.

Nokia 6288 - received an SMS, phone screen went blank

This issue can also be resolved simply by removing the batteries first, then remove your SD memory card, clean the SD card up with an eraser on it's gold/copper contacts, clean it and replace battery on the phone and turn it on. It would turn on, and then you can put the memory card back in. It is a common 6288 bug.

Unless this suggestion works, then you can follow the reset codes given by gizmo above...
