Soft and hard reset Nokia N70

Soft Reset


The reset will restore all the phone’s settings to factory default.

Hard Reset


Please make backup before applying this type of reset, since it will restore the phone’s settings as well as erasing all the data in the phone memory.

  1. Switch off the phone.

  2. Press CALL + * + 3 + ON simultaneously until the phone is completely started.


note: The default password is 12345. You need to press and hold the key until the number appear.

  25. @prashanth: Take off the battery, and insert back. Then, hard format the phone. You can also try to change the battery. If still not working, perhaps it's time to buy new phone. Good luck.

    1. @Steve,

      Hi,have you forgotten the Security/Password code for your mobile?What is your mobile model?I suggest you to try default codes like 00000 or 12345.If it does not work out you can use master reset generated code from Unlock-free.com and reset the mobile.Here they provide master reset for Nokia (Basic) and Alcatel mobile models

  33. Soft-format:

    The soft-format code for Series 60 phones is *#7370# . You enter this code as you would enter a phone number in the Phone application. It performs a format of the Internal drive - All data will be lost if you use this feature.

    Hard-format:

    The method of performing a hard-format, i.e resetting it completely to factory defaults and removing all data, is as follows:

    Switch off the phone.
    Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and ‘3? button
    While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
    When the message ‘Formatting’ appears on the screen, release all of the buttons

  34. Soft reset deletes all your Contacts/ SMS/ Notes! So beware!

  36. @eagle: It's like formatting your PC. It will wipe everything, and reinstall the OS.

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Avinash: That's why you need to perform backup beforehand.
