Nuwan, 16 Feb 2010Dear xplit,
I'm sorry for your trouble... As the other posts say, it can either be a bug of... moreHard reset method that u mentioned here that is pressing the green red n camera key while turning on the phone doesn't work on 5530, it's for 5800 only.
*#7370# is the only apparent method so far for a phone memory clean up, not a true format i guess.
And *#7780# is the code for soft reset, you gave wrong code to the other guy.

xplit, 15 Feb 2010thanks Nuwan for the answer but nothing happened after pressing #*7380# (ie no response at all... moreDear xplit,
I'm sorry for your trouble... As the other posts say, it can either be a bug of Nokia itself or a virus... What ever it is, the final solution that you can perform is a hard reset... (If soft reset wouldn't work..)
But as the key pad doesn't respond to the soft reset code, it won't respond to the hard reset code also...
Here is the code if you want to try that too...
*#7370# (Default Security code 12345)
But never forget to back up your data using Nokia PC suite in your computer... The backing up procedure has been described in my previous post... (Even thought it's a virus, when you connect your mobile to the Computer, it should work at least for PC Suite I hope...)
If above code doesn't work, then there's this last option...
1) Do a back up first..
2) Shut down the mobile by pressing the power key...
3) Give it 5 minutes to cool down and press the power button again to power it on
4) Press 'Green', 'Red' buttons together with 'Camera' button (all at once) on power up...
5) Provide the security code
6) Let the phone to do the rest (DO NOT INTERRUPT...!)
This is very important... You should never interrupt the mobile while hard reset is processing... Please wait for 20 minutes... Then you're done... Your 5530 will be back to it's original status if everything works just fine...
If that even doesn't work, all you have to do is go to a Nokia care center and ask for a replace...!
Good luck brother...
Nuwan, 15 Feb 2010Dear Cyber-Shot under dog, Thanks brother... I found you in facebook and watched your photo... moreyeah, I just hard reset it. . . ahahah it must be from the web feeds that has been eating the memory
Miroo96, 15 Feb 2010dear nuwan,,,
i'm gonna ask u a stupid question ,,,how can i backup data,,,is it in nokia o... moreDear Miroo96,
Yes dear... You can of course back up your data using either Nokia PC suite or Nokia OVI suite... I always use Nokia PC suite because it's the most familiar thing to me and it's very safe too...
There's a 'back up' option in File Manager as well... But it's in the phone and not that reliable... (Because your back up will be saved in your memory card...) But I strongly recommend you to do a back up using your PC suite and save that in to your Computer... (Not to the memory card...)
And remember to select only the things you want... Otherwise it'll take hell of a time...
What I do is, I back up only contacts, Notes & calendar entries using the PC suite back up feature... The SMS I always use the PC suite's SMS viewer and select only what i want and use the 'Export' feature to save them in a spread sheet like file... (As I remember the extension is CSV... There you can save all your SMS in to a one single file...)
If you're going to back up hundreds of SMS, it'll take a long time...
One more thing... Don't back up 'Settings' because you want to back up your data because you're going to soft/hard reset your mobile... In that case you wouldn't want to keep some erroneous settings in your system again...
Good luck man...
xplit, 15 Feb 2010thanks Nuwan for the answer but nothing happened after pressing #*7380# (ie no response at all... moreFor soft reset the code is *#7780# not 7380.
For hard reset the code is *#7370#
This will solve your problem. I think you haven't updated your firmware, i had a similar problem back when i was in v11. Do a hard reset then update the firmare, for this press *#0000# or goto software update application. Prefer updating via phone coz last time i tried updating with nokia software updater the phone didn't turn on at all and i had to get it replaced.
if you really want a great phone that has all you need..
check out the samsung jet!
nice looking but it's the most stupid phone I ever had! I will never agian buy a nokia... it's not stable, it's slow, but worst think - it's stupid!
myk., 15 Feb 2010can someone tell me whats the latest firmware? :) thanksI have a feeling it's something like 2.1.4, if you have a scout around the Nokia forums you'll find out how to update it and how to check it, that's how I did it =D
xplit, 15 Feb 2010Can someone help me on this problem? The four shortcut icon of the home screen just disappeare... moreYou've got the same error as me, I think, I just returned mine to the carphone warehouse and they've submitted it for repair, I contacted Nokia and they told me to return it, seems like it's some major bug which Nokia don't know much about. I think it may be down to a virus or a bug from some software, I experienced this from downloading apps from places other than the Ovi store which I feel may be down to it
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I bought it yesterday at 13300 (Mumbai)
It is a very nice phone, go for it.
xplit, 15 Feb 2010Can someone help me on this problem? The four shortcut icon of the home screen just disappeare... more@ xplit. Ur fone has been corrupted by a virus...via bluetooth perhaps. I guess all ur msgs wld have disappeared as well. Get the software reinstalled from the Nokia care centers...shd be fine...
