How to format of nokia 9300i
Welcome to Fixya
This process erases from your Nokia 9300 all of your user data and
settings, including your phone book, calendar, email, downloads,
recordings, and certain factory installed programs such as Instant
Messaging and BlackBerry Connect.
REMEMBER: Create a device data backup or synchronization before formatting.
You can restore device data and settings later. See the Nokia 9300 User Guide for further instructions.
STEP 1 - Format the Nokia 9300 memory
* Remove the battery for 10 seconds
* Replace the battery
* Open the Nokia 9300 to view the inside display
* When you see the screen with "NOKIA" in blue text,
* Press and hold the following four keys until a Format Message is displayed:
CRTL + Shift + F
* Confirm the process by selecting Format
* Formatting will begin
* After formatting is complete the Nokia 9300 will reboot with some
basic settings. If prompted, accept the request to reboot
