Either *#7370# fro the standby screen, and enter lock code, default is 12345

or when booting up, hold the call (green) key, 3 and *

alternativly try reset to factory from tools>settings>general>factory settings.. again default lock code is 12345

Connect the phone to computer and select Mass Storage Device instead of Nokia PC Suite and you would see a new drive in your "My Computer" right click on that select on Format. Review the settings and click on Start to start the format.

Some memory cards are supplied pre-formatted and others require formatting.
Consult your retailer to find out if you must format the memory card before you
can use it.
• Select Options→ Format mem. card.
Select Yes to confirm. When formatting is complete, enter a name for the
memory card (max. 11 letters or numbers).

Backing up and restoring information
To back up information from your phone’s memory to the memory card, select
Options→ Backup phone mem.
To restore information from the memory card to the phone’s memory, select
Options→ Restore from card.
You can only back up the phone memory and restore it to the same phone.

Locking the memory card
To set a password to lock your memory card to help prevent unauthorised use,
select Options→ Set password.
You are asked to enter and confirm your password. The password can be up to
eight characters long.

It must because firmware problem. This could be due to partial installation of updates. It would be better to go to your nearest Nokia service center and get it repaired.

if it can, then goto nokia website and download the system upgrade for the phone.. and then try to install a fresh system on the phone..
if it dsnt work, then i guess takin it to a phone shop will be the best thing to do..
