Hi there,

Is your phone a Nokia?

To restore a Nokia to factory settings you must first turn off your phone.

Then press the following buttons simultaneously (at the same time):

Power button + * + 3

This will jumpstart your phone and will turn on as if were turned on the first time coming straight out of the box.

This will format everything on your phone (messages, contacts, files and the like) so I would advise you to back up anything important that you would need later on.

If you have a memory card in your phone, take it out prior to formatting the Nokia as both the phone and memory card will be formatted in the factory resetting process.

Hope I have been of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

My son forgot his security pin and wants to change his sim.. model: 1110i type: RH-93 imei 356450019605655

hello,Hi,you can make use of either soft reset,hard reset or factory settings.
Soft Reset
Soft Reset will clear pending errors and bring your mobile to an initial state by restoring Factory setting. To operate this function on your mobile, the shortcut is: *#7380#

This function apparently works on almost all nokia mobile phones.
Hard Reset
It may happen that despite you have restored your mobile to factory setting, the error still exist. In this case, it is recommended that you opt for Hard reset
Enter the code: *#7370# and press Yes to confirm initialization.
Important Notice:
It is recommended that you save all important information on your phone (e.g: memo, contacts etc)
To make a Hard Reset on a Nokia phone that is not willing to turn on, just press simultaneously these 3 buttons:
press on/off
+ * + 3whenever you forget your security code the only option left to keep making use of the phone is to format it and the steps to take in the formation is to follow them below,
5.12345 OR 00000

wish you good luck,

take care.

Go to settings , Dual SIM settings , and check that you're not in 'flight mode' (that's when the 2 X appear top left) and change it to either one of the 3 other options (Dual sim open, only sim1 open, only sim2 open).

Lock code (5 digits) can be used to lock the phone to avoid unauthorised use. The factory

lock code. Keep the new code secret and in a safe place separate from your phone.

It will be the phone thats the problem . Most likely the speaker is faulty . but there maybe a chance that its just the ringone settings , i would check that 1st and then restore the factory settings .(you can do this by accessing settings and then selecting restore factory setings the code will most likely be 1234 or 12345 and so on , and as a last resort i would take it to a shop and see what they have to say ....
