My nokia6600 has this problem when ever I start my phone it displays the following message " Phone startup failed contact your retailer."
Please guide me what should I do without losing my Phone contact information and what was the cause of such problem? Hope it is not virus infected. Should I purchase a new phone and dispose the current one.

This means that your Phone has an error in the software and might need a re-installation. Remove the battery for about 30 minutes, remove the memory card , now set in the battery and switch ON. If the same fault occurs you might need the help of a Nokia support centre for re-installation.

I have the 6600, last week the mobile couldnt work. phone registration failed contact retailer message displays. i have many messages in that mobile. i contacted the retailer, but the retailer told only solution is flashing the mobile. shall i get back my messages in that mobiles please help me
hi, Your phone's memory card must be infected with virus or has some fault. Please remove the memory card and try to start the phone again. If it goes through, please back up the data in your memory card and format it. In most cases, this procedure solves the "Phone start up failed. Contact the retailer" error. I'd advice you to format your phones internal memory as well, it will flush out any errors present. save your "phonebook" data somewhere and Make sure your phone's battery is fully charged if not plug the charger in and proceed. NB: interrupting this process might render your phone useless. So, be careful.
To format press *#7370# it will prompt you for security code, enter it and the phone will reboot. Your phone will be reset to "factory settings."
