Format the entire phone. This will delete everything on the phone, but so back up pics, videos, etc on the memory card.

To format:

1. Turn off phone
2. Hold the following keys down WHILE it's turning back on:
3. (3 + * + green call key)
4. Do not let go till it asks about your location
5. Let johnny_20 know how it goes :)

To unlock Nokia N73(all S60 phones)

Make sure your phone is fully charged. Ads by Google
'; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+9911500640+5009222491+6529619144+3607312525+8962074949+8941458308+6876289738+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //--> google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

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.

This wont ask you for Lock code when you switch it on next time.

N73 phone Memory Full

Might be time to start deleting unneeded things. Phones tend to get full fast. Which is why I use memory cards.

My N73 shows a message like this"phone memory is full" but i have deleted ALL of my datas in phone memory, i really dont know what else should i do!!!

You might have to format your phone memory.

Unlock your Nokia N73's keypad by pressing the left soft key found just above the green call button and then pressing the "*" or asterisk key.

Press a series of five keys on your keypad following the sequence "*7370#" without quotes. Assume that you are dialing this as a number. The N73 should show a confirmation message right after you press the "#" key.

Read the Warnings section before proceeding and choose the "Yes" option from the confirmation message to tell the Nokia N73 to format the phone memory.
