Try these methods also: Primary Method

  1. Turn your device off.
  2. Remove SIM card and MMC card (actually, you do not need to remove these, but after format remember to format memory card and reboot phone).
  3. Press and hold 3 keys; Green dial key, * Star key, no. 3 key on keypad Together.
  4. Turn your device on while you are pressing the three buttons.
  5. You should now see "Formatting .." on the Screen! Leave the buttons now.
Alternate Method
  1. You can remove the mmc but keep the sim card and restart your phone.
  2. Then press the keys *#7370#.
  3. The phone would ask a confirmation.
  4. Select yes.
  5. Then it will ask for a code.
  6. The code is 12345 (the default).
  7. There you are! your phone will restart with all the phone memory formatted.

Tips
  • You can also use some programs to format the device for you.
  • The format will not include the MMC Card, only the device (C Drive)...
  • The above method isn't always easy. You can do the format using this simple key combination *#7370# and the phone will prompt you to enter the phone lock code which is 12345 by default.
  • Also remember that you can reset your phone but not loose any of your personal files (I.E restore the settings that came when you bought the phone while keeping contacts etc)

Warnings
  • Don't apply these steps if you are not sure what you are doing.
  • Make sure you have enough battery power before beginning this procedure.
  • Formatting will erase all your contacts/messages, so make a backup of your phone before formatting.
  • If have MMC-card make a backup on mmcstore file !
If these methods are also failing then re-install your phone's software in an authorised nokia care centre..

My nokia 6600 wont start how will i reformat it


it wont start like it wont turn on? or it wont continue booting?

anyway here's the way to format your phone

try this

12345 is a standard code and 00000, but if you change it and you have forgotten your unlock code, you'll just have to reformat it

key combination which is used to hard reset the phone (similar to #*7370). It is useful in some cases, for example when the phone cannot reboot.

The trick is
Switch off the phone.
Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and ‘3′ button
While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
When the message ‘Formatting’ appears on the screen, release all of the buttons...


reformatting your phone will delete all your data and also will restore all the defaults of your phone, and any corrupted application will be reinstalled, but if the formating doesn't work, you'll just have to re flash it, the safe way is to go to a near repair shop of your phone and have then to re flash your phone,

Best option...


The best bet would be to format both your phone and memory card, although be sure to have a backup of important data. Reformat the card on your computer with a card reader and not using your phone as the virus may just re-infect it as soon as you are done.

1. Remove memory card from phone
2. Format memory card using computer
3. Format phone by pressing *#7370# on the keypad (you will need your security code)
4. Re-insert your memory card and restore your data.

Hope this is helpful.

It is necessary to format your phone, because system files regarding your phone boot sector seems got corrupted. There is not enough room in your RAM it leads to your phone at this status. Take important data backup, remove MMC and enter the press four keys i.e. 3.*,green send key and power on key together for sometime and hold it for sometime. Your phone screen will indicate "FORMATING". Your phone will get formatted, then switch off and on it again as usual . Remember to scan your MMC with a good anti virus before inserting it back in phone. During formating don't remove battery and do this process only with enough charged battery. You will be able to send your message then. Do vote this solution....
