There are many ways, but in my opinion the simplest one is this one. Note: All your date will be lost, and the phone will be as "Out of the Box" condition, so backup whatever you want.

  • Make sure your phone is fully charged.
  • Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card (if possible).
  • Switch off your N73 phone.
  • Press and hold these three keys together:
  • The green dial key,
    • The star key (*)
    • The three key (3)
  • Press the power on/off for 1 minute to switch on the N73 phone. Do not let go of the three keys until you see the “formatting” screen displayed
  • Wait a few minutes until the format is complete. Your N73 will now be formatted and restored to its original factory settings.
  • If i was helpful, kindly do Rate!

    Too many programs, games, themes, music or other odds and ends loaded on the phone. The phone needs a certain amount of internal memory to function.
    Solution: delete some of the stuff on your phone.

    Nokia phones are very good at security.We cant hack or decode the security code directly.Only possible way is to format the phone memory.Before formatting make sure that no important detail is stored in the phone memory especially some important contacts.
