Guys most of you should be using Symbian OS Mobiles in Nokia like Nseries and 6600 etc . .
However after a period of time , it will become damn slow and HANGS frequently and becomes annoying , so the only solution to restore it back to normal is to FORMAT it . .

Here are the steps to format :


1. First create a backup file in your PC using Nokia PC suite , because u will loose all ur data from MEMORY CARD , so its better you take a bach up in ur PC

2. Now you can format your Memory card just by
Menu -> Tools -> Memory -> option and then select "Format mem. card"

3. Again restore the BACKUP file from your PC to mobile using Nokia Pc Suite . .

4. Now your problem will be resolved and thats it . . .

Even after formatting your memory card , if ur cell keeps on hanging , then the only solution is to FORMAT your PHONE MEMORY

1. First create a backup file in your PC using Nokia PC suite , because u will loose all ur data from MEMORY CARD , so its better you take a bach up in ur PC

2. Now there are two kinds of Format , soft and hard format
*#7370# -- (soft format) (Always do this , if ur problem is not solved go to hard)
*#7780# -- (hard format

3. It will ask you for password and it is 12345 (default code) .

4. It will format your phone completely and now your symbian mobile will be fresh like u purchased from the shop . .

5. Again restore the BACKUP file from your PC to mobile using Nokia Pc Suite . .

6. Now your problem is solved . .


------------------------------------

Note :
1.Instead of formatting ur mobile , u can download the latest Firmware phone updates
and then connect ur phone with the sim in it with any general profile and run the update
it'll format as well as update ur phone and usually I ll do this trick . . . ..

2.Hard format clears the phone memory completing including the Secondary as well as the primary memory ... that is the storage memory and the RAM memory.. not a single setting or any trace of any kind of initial use can be noted ...

3.Soft format again formats completely but only for a few settings and information remains in the RAM memory and again when u re-insert ur MMC into the phone some softwares catch up with this saved files in the memory and they work perfectly normal . .

    Don't format the memory card frequently. if you did so, then you will loose your memory card.

    I would like to share my experience,I had done a format for my Nokia 6600 through the following steps.
    Step 1: Took Backup of my contacts
    Step 2: Took Backup of all SMS and Multimedia messages,Photos and other necessary information.
    Step 3:Master reset the phone.
    To master reset I approached Unlock-free.com where they prvide the master rest service for free.
