    i did these steps:

    FLASHING

    3rd step :FLASHING : ANOTHER METHOD FOR HARD FULL FORMATTING

    This step is known as flashing of phone. Always do this step at last (after 1st 2 steps are over and u are not successfull)

    1. Make sure you phone is fully charged. (At minimum 3/4 of bettery should be left)

    2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card (if possible).

    3. Switch-off your mobile phone.

    4. Press and hold these three keys together

    -Green dial key,-Star key (*)-Three key (3)

    then press the power on/off to swtich on the phone.

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

    5. After a few minutes, the format will be complete. Your mobile will now be at its original factory settings (It will reach the same state as that in when you purchased it).



    but still some virus is on my phone. pls help.
    tnx a lot

First step: Turn off your phone, next, while on off mode long press (*)(3)(call sign key) at the same time for about 10 seconds, then turn on your phone keeping those three keys press. when the word "Formatting" appears on the screen,let go of the three keys then wait until it is through formatting. For all NOKIA S60

Stucked power switch

Open the panel and check if its anything you can do yourself - cleaning or reassembling. not much else ;] Do a dry clean, you dont wan't any liquids around an open cellphone. Good luck
