What computer? what operating system? Did you ever make a backup? Do you only want the computer to work again, of are there any important files on it?
Better to put this question in the category 35 mm SLR cameras, but in the category computers, with more information.

You can do Hard Reset for formatting your phone without asking for a code.

Follow this Procedure

1. Turn off your phone
2. Remove battery,simcard and memory card
3. put the battery back and be sure it is fully charged.

4. Now long press * 3 and call button (asterisk, 3 , call button) simultaneously then POWER the phone ON.(keep hold the three given buttons) while the phone is in progress in booting,you can release the power button now but keep holding the three buttons,wait until the phone open and ask for the country selection,that's the time you can release the button now.

If the method does not work,repeat the procedure because you might not press some given keys.
Now your phone is in Default settings.

This is absolutely working....


Good Day...

You can hard reset the phone to reinstall the firmware. There are two methods but you will loss the contacts and messages etc.
1. Power on the phone. Dial *#7370# from phone. It asks for reset. Press yes. The phone will be formatted to default. Enter you code when it asks. The default code is 12345

2. Other method to hard reset is four finger reset. dushy4.jpg

Formsttong n72


There r two ways to format ur Cell Phone1. 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

Doing HARD CORE FORMAT might help u in resetting the password.

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
