Question about Nokia 6301 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Exactly the same, phone wont turn on and stay on.

Last year, 3 weeks after getting my new phone, i took out the sd card from my 6301 and the same thing occurs. phone boots and flashes white and black screen, shows the date, then turns off. i took it to nokia they tried flashing and said it was a hardware failure, gave me a new phone. then 12 months later (yesterday) same thing i took out the sd card, SAME THING HAPPENED, except now i was 3 weeks out of warranty. i took it to my phone provider and thankfully they were nice enough to give me a new phone. i have now decided i will not even insert the sd card into the phone. i think this is a major hardware flaw that nokia isnt willing to acknowledge. something is dead wrong with this model, they need to issue an update to correct this problem from occuring. my advice, DO NOT TAKE OUT YOUR SD CARD, or if you havent ever inserted it, DONT INSERT IT TO BEGIN WITH.

Accidenttaly formatted my Micro SD card on my enV2 phone

you are screwed because you would have to find a type of software to find them again and that might not even work.don't use the sd card even if it is possible of getting the stuff back because it can be overitten. i highly doubt you can get them back since sd cards are digital media.

LG Rumor Phone's screen frozen

If you have a memory card in the phone...take it out. then turn take out the battery. Turn it back on. And if that works. its because you have a virus and or corrupted file on that memory card. Same thing happened to me. But now the screen is all messed up everytime i slide it open or closed.
