Nokia 5300 IM service

Could you please advise what to do, if the option for IM service on Nokia 5300 just disappeared from the main menu? Now it looks like it has never been there... Called my phone provider and got the answer that it might have happened cuz it was drowned in water (which was long time ago, and IM and everything else was working perfectly after that). Could my provider have switched that option off? How can it be possibly restored?
Thank you.

Thank you for the suggestion. Will I be able to do the reflash if my phone is locked though? (its a Tmobile phone). Could you also note which site its the best to get the updates from?
Thank you once again.

Hard format for nokia 5300?

There should be two ways to format your Nokia 5300
Soft Reset: On the main menu, type in on your keypad the following combination: *#7780# - This option restores the .ini files from the ROM and will not erase data (photos, videos, documents) or applications that you installed
Hard Reset(Factory Reset):

This will format the C: partition and deletes all data including the data store on the memory card. Key in *#7370# (this should be done on default screen)

Warning: Battery should be fully charged. If during the course of reset,
the mobile stop receiving electricity it can ruin the internal flash
memory of the mobile device and will stop functioning.

Don't know you IEMI number yet, access this link to know how:

Where is the memory card settings in the nokia 5300

The best way to find the memory capacity is to open either the music player or the messaging option on the menu. Then hit the options key and the last thing on the list that pops up will say "Memory Status".
Open that and you can see both the phone memory and the memory card memory,

Hope this helps!

Also, if it does help, make sure you rate it for me, ok?

Sony sdm-hs75

Try this:

Under the menu options, there's Menu Lock. Switch it to "On". It worked for me.
My menu button wasn't working, so to access the menu, I had to hold down the arrow up button and push the arrow down button till I got to the Menu Lock Option.
