Nokia E71 Hard Reset

I have a Nokia E71 and I would like to do a hard reset for it. Recently I had many problems with the phone. I think the only option is the hard reset now. If you have any other alternative the please let me know. Also, if you know any other nokia codes then please post back.

Re: Nokia E71 Hard Reset

First try the Soft reset

Always start with a soft reset in case of trouble.
Enter the following code:
* # 7780 #
Then, if the phone asks for lock code, the original is: 12345

Re: Nokia E71 Hard Reset

If after the soft reset, the phone still has problems, try the Hard reset.
Enter the following code:
* # 7370 #
Like the Soft Reset the phone, mobile ask you the lock code, the original is: 12345

To perform a Hard Reset on a Nokia, which wants more light, make the following operation:
Press these three keys simultaneously:
on / off + * + 3
Wait for "format" fits the screen, then release the 3 keys.

Re: Nokia E71 Hard Reset

So I tried this, it asks me if I actually want to restore the original config, but when he did, it changes nothing at all! No parameters of departure is changed, the same problems persist, the only difference between before and after the hard reset is the fact that this may no longer be silent but pervasive pattern. Is this what I have do to make an hard reset?

Re: Nokia E71 Hard Reset

There are two methods of hard reset:
The first works only in cases where the phone is light (that is to say that you have access to links, directory, ...)
Simply enter the following code * # 7370 # the phone asks "Restore Defaults. Initial phone? The phone will work again. "Answer yes to this moment he will ask for the lock code. The lock code is 12345 original but of course if you modified it must return yours.

The second method can be applied in all cases but if the phone is light (that is to say that you have access to links, directory, ...) prefer the first method is simpler.
Turn off your phone
Hold down the star key (*) button, pick up (green button), the 3 key on the keyboard and the on / off button until such time as the formatting starts.

Maverick Mobile SOlutions..


One does not realize how valuable something is until it is lost....
And thus feel same when our handset is LOST..
It is not only the HANDSET we lose but also an equally important DATA ..
And considering all these things we have launched MSM(Maverick Secure Mobile Application.)

Do you have a few minutes? I will explain you more.

What is Maverick Secure Mobile(MSM)?
Maverick Secure Mobile(MSM)is a security application.Secure mobile helps you
to protect your data,track your stolen device,retrieve your phonebook
& disable the stolen device remotely.The application works in hidden mode &
cannot be viewed in the device.To launch/Customize this application one has
to press pre defined short keys and password.After installing MSM in the
device one must as "Reporting Contact" in the application.Reporting contact
can be your second number/friends number or any other number on which you
want to receive all the reports.

1.Protect Your Data :Incase of thief/loss,the moment SIM change is
detected,MSM will encrypt all the data on the device like the
Phonebook,Images,Messages,etc.Now one can be assured about the privacy or
misuse of the data on the device.

2.Track Device :Incase of thief/loss,the application will send the Phone
Number,Device Id,Country Code,Operator Name and Area Code(location) to the
Reporting device through sms.
Secure Mobile will also report about activities performed on the stolen
device via SMS like Outgoing Calls Made, Incomming Calls Received,Sms
Sent/Received,New Contacts Added to phonebook detailed...

3.Retrieve Phonebook :The most important data on any device are the
contacts.using MSM one can retrieve phonebook from the stolen device,the
entire phonebook will be retrieved by sending sms contact=all from the
reporting device.As soon as the stolen device receives sms it will start
sending the entire phonebook through SMS,and the funny thing is by using the
data plan of the thief.

4.Spy Call :If the owner calls from the reporting device to the stolen
device,it will be termed as Spy Call. Spy Call will switch the Loudspeaker &
Mic of the stolen device remotely,so that the caller can actually listens to
the conversation.This call will not give any notification/ring to the stolen
device.the person who receives spy call will not be able to know he is being
called by the owner.Even if he comes to know about the spy call,he cannot
disconnect the spy call.

5.Raise an alarm and disable the phone :To disable stolen device
remotely,send sms=hang from the reporting device to the stolen device,and it
will raise an alarm and start playing a loud Siren.MSM will also display a
customized message.Here,one can put his Name,Address,Alternate number and
Award Amount.

6.Data back Up ecure Mobile has a distinct feature of incremental Data
Backup.Using this feature once can backup all the data from the device to
secure remote server .So now all your data is very much secured and you can
retrieve it without any hassle.

7.Thief under CONTROL:Can catch the thief anywhere in the world....

It not only works when STOLEN but also can be used as PARENTAL CONTROL(spying on your children) and
much more.

To check your HANDSET'S Compatibility & to get Maverick Secure Mobile
Application Online,Please click on the following link.

We will be happy if you would be interested in exploring a partnership with
Maverick Mobile Solutions for your market.

Incase any query please feel free to ask...
Note:Kindly forward/pass on this mail to your friend if you are not interested.
Your friend may appreciate that.

Re: Nokia E71 Hard Reset

Following software malfunction, you may be asked to submit data to your phone from scratch. Before performing a hard reset (using the keys * # 7370 #), try a Soft Reset using the keys * # 7780 #. This saves you delete your data, contacts, calendar, etc.. to recall code blockage your phone is 12345.
