How do i know my nokia E52 lock code to go in for "restore factory settings"

it is known that there is always a prolem in nokia security codes.

but i have a great solution if u know that previous handsets had a combination pattern for formatting the nokia phone (Only symbian)
1St = switch off the phone

2nd = Keypress * (star) key + numeric 3 + green Dial button. dont take ur hands off and start by powering on keep hold on buttons until ur screen displays nokia hand shake.

for hard reset
With all these operations I recommend you TAKE OUT MEMORY CARD and DO A BACK UP OF YOUR STUFF!!!

NOTE: In front of the hash key ( #) there is also a STAR key that people often miss and state that the code does not work.
1.. *#7780# - Restore factory settings - resets all the settings to the default ( you will not lose any data) Make sure you back up your data as you will lose all of it when you perform option 2 or 3 on this list. The default code for ALL operations listed here is 12345.

2.*#7370# - Reformat your phone (out of the box, tho keep in mind that most newer nokia phones at least n series, e series and s60 based phones have udp - user data preservation so not ALL data may be lost. still it is a good idea to always do a back up of your stuff.)3. This you perform as a last resort. Nothing else is working.If the phone is not showing any activity, proceed with hard formatting , turn off your phone, hold the following buttons while pressing the power button. (the default code is 12345)

3. hard reset - hold the following buttons * (star key),3 (number button) and talk/green key. turn on the phone and do not release those buttons until you see the Nokia boot up screen. once you feel the phone power up you can let go off the power button while still holding all three buttons ( for Nokia 5800XM - use the following buttons to do a hard reset, /GREEN/RED/CAMERA keys pressed all at once on power up. this will only work on 5800's that have firmware version 20... and up. ) For Nokia N97 (unofficial version but works) is SHIFT /SPACE BAR / BACKSPACE while holding the power button. Again do not let go until you see the handshake screen.
If these codes are not working the only thing for you to do is contact your Nokia Care Center/Service for assistance.

How to format nokia 6101

First thing first, not all the Symbian phones can be formatted by the so called "Formatting codes" (Will not work in Series40 phones like Nokia 6300, 7210, 5130 etc and the older Nokia Generic OS based phones like Nokia 1600, 2600 etc). These phones can only be formatted through flashing (Re-installing) their OS software (Firmware) via data cable and computer. Only Symbian S60 (And a few of other series) based mobiles have built-in support for the format codes. So format codes will work in all Symbian^1 (S60 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th edition) phones like Nokia 3650, 3660, 6600, 6630, 6680, 6681, 3230, 7610, 6670, 3250, N70, N72, N73, N75, N76, N77, N78, N79, N80, N81, N82, N83, N85, N86, N90, N91, N92, N93, N95, N96, N97, 5800 and other touchscreen phones plus the newer Symbian^3 phones (Nokia N8, C7 and E7 etc). Now lets begin with formatting process: There are two methods to format the phone depending upon the situation: A. When the phone is in working condition:
Just press any of the following two codes at standby screen *#7780# or
Phone will ask for confirmation and security code (Default security code is 12345), enter it and bingo everything in phone memory will be erased and phone will be back to factory settings.
Hard Reset - When the phone is not starting-up (i.e. not working after white screen or Nokia Logo screen)
- then follow these steps: 1. Switch-off the phone
2. Press and hold following three keys simultaneously (Remember "All the three keys" simultaneously):
Green Key (OK or Number Dialing key), Star key (*) and Three key (3 number key)
3. While still holding the above three keys, press the power on/off key to switch-on the phone.
Still continue holding the three keys until the "formatting" screen appears. Now you can release the keys, confirm if asked and then wait for the format to complete. Now the phone will be restored to its original factory settings. Read HERE to know about hard resetting Nokia N97, 5800, 5230, 5530 and other touchscreen S60 5th edition phones.The above format will reset the phone but most probably will not clear the operator's lock codes.

Follow the instructions below to format Nokia 9300/9500 (Communicators)
1. Restart the phone
2. Just when the "NOKIA" logo appears on screen, PRESS AND HOLD following three keys simultaneously:
Shift (Up Arrow key) + Ctrl + F
3. KEEP HOLDING them until phone prompts you whether or not to proceed with format. If however the format menu does not appear this way then remove and re-insert the battery and try again. If the phone display remains black after inserting the battery, press power button on the phone side while keeping the cover open and repeat the above procedure. After formatting, phone will reboot. If the screen remains white after reboot, press power button on the phone side while keeping the cover open.
NOTE: Before formatting the phone, make sure -
1. That you backup all your phone data to either computer or memory card as formatting will erase everything in phone memory.
2. That the phone's battery is charged fully or is plugged in AC power because if unfortunately, the phone runs out of battery during format, then the phone may get permanently damaged and irreparable.
3. If your phone is infected with a virus (Only applies to 1st and 2nd edition phones) then also format the memory card and scan it with a good computer antivirus like Avast.
I hope that the above instructions will help the needy.

Whats the code of the resoration?

You want to do a hard reset or a soft reset?
The soft reset does not erase data (photos, videos, documents) or applications from the phone.
The Hard reset restore the phone, it will be just like when you first brought it.

Once you know what reset you want, choose the code

Soft reset code: *#7780#
Hard Reset code: *#7370#

I want to reinstall my symbian os in my nokia n72

  • Soft Reset (*#7780#): This is a normal reset. It will load the original settings from the phone's ROM. However, it will retain the user's own data. Like images, music, installed applications etc.
  • Hard Reset (*#7370#): This method completely reformats the C: drive (Phone Memory). All the user information will be deleted. Like images, music files, installed applications etc. Hence, the phone is set to the default factory settings.

Switch Off the device.
* Press and Hold down the keys Green/Talk + 3 + *.
* Switch On the device.
* If everything goes well then you will see "Formatting" screen.
On performing any of above methods of formatting the phone, device will ask you for a security/lock code. Default code is 12345.

The link above will explain how to restore the phone to its original condition. This effectively reinstalls S60. It also wipes out everything else on the phone so be sure to use Noia PC Suite to back up what you need to keep and to restore it after the reinstall of S60.

Take backups of ur phone books,calender and others, then simply enter the code

Just enter the code-
Then it asks for security code enter ur security code whose deafault value is 12345
The battery must be full or the charger has to be connected to the phone so that it does not run out of power and make the phone unusable.

Do not let go the three keys until you see the “formatting” screen displayed

Please let me know your feed-back.
