Nokia E72 dropped in water. Phone works to make and receive calls, and text messages can be read, but some of the keys do the wrong thing, so I cannot lock the phone or write text messages / emails. Can this be fixed?

There may still be water in the phone. Take out the battery, put it in a ziplock bag of rice, and leave it over night. the rice should absorb all the water from the phone.

Please remember to rate my solution to show your appreciation.

How to remove nokia messaging portal and contents from home computer


Dear All....is it possible to uninstall the standard version of Nokia Messaging, found on the E72 and replace it with the version found on the E71.
I'm annoyed that Nokia have chosen not to fully support automatic HTML download of emails. As a previous E71 user, i am aware that the version found on that handset does support automatic HTML download of emails.
I have managed to download the E71's version as a sis file how ever the E72 will not install it as the version found on the E72 cannot be uninstalled by the installation software.

Cannot receive messages on nokia e72


Can you make calls? If so then it is probably an issue of the dedicated memory for messages being all filled up, try deleting a couple and see what happens. If you cannot make calls it is probably because you lack enough signal strength to receive the messages.

Just got a nokia e72. Why can't I send texts?


Message Problems


Hi, issues like this are related to your Sim card (network),
not your Cell Phone . In most cases, regarding the text messages,
the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number,
or you can do it in vise- versa by inserting another Sim card on your mobile.

If you can't receive text messages even when it's inserted on another handset,
then you will need to call the customer care of your Network Operator and tell
them your problem, they will help you fix it immediately.

You can check the message center number, but I don't think
it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use) is the same number which
is on another phone with the same network (the other Sim should be
of the same network in your area). If it's different, make the changes
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with
me, please excuse me for this.).

If the same Sim card doesn't receive text messages using another handset,
don't bother to change the settings or to make any changes with it,
first call the customer care and verify from them, you may make mistakes instead of fixing it.


Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya.......

When i receive a text message my nokia E72 doesnt ring, what could be the problem?


Does the phone ring when you receive an incoming call? If so, press Menu go to Control Panel (or might be the profile is shown in the menu) after control panel, Profile then Options and then Personalize, then, scroll down and again select Message Alert Tone, set the Tone for the message. Also make sure that the volume is turned up. Save the settings and try again. If this doesn't help and you don't hear any ring tone during an incoming call, let me know after checking the sound settings.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
