    The thing is it hangs up all the times and cannot continue. Its like ”all white background with NOKIA text at the lower portion..AND CANNOT RESUME ANYMORE”…
    Somebody help me please/….

  48. method 2 and method 3 is wrong, how you can enter *#7370# and *#7780# when phone is switch off

  49. Hey do this.
    If your phone is on, press *#7370# that’s it. Now format option will open. Yes to format. Asking lock key and input 12345 ok.Format complete and restart. What is very big in this to understand more. Before formating do this. Copy all contact from phone memory to SIM card. Don’t backup phone to memory card if there is virous. Remove memory card and SIM card before formating. Scan memorycard for virous or format it before use. Inserting memorycard with autorun program on it can infect phone again.

  50. Hi there,
    Nokia N73 or N series. Recomentation for update software from Nokia. Now proceed to update from PC.. All connected. Update started. After some function running, Phone go for Restart. That’s all. Phone DEAD. No more starting. A message on PC screen (phone disconnected from PC) Do not remove anything or remove and connect again battery, USB,restart phone,
    so on, all nonsense. Phone is dead on the way of update.
    Can anybody know, how to bring the phone back in working ?
    I think this is occured with so many people.. Is there a common solution, for ths kind of problem. Please send a reasonable reply over to this site. I am not interested any link adress.
    help self and help others.
    Thanks to all contributions.
