Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Thanks Buttons UP I have tried using restore factory setting but that didn't help. Tell me how... morejust remove ur memory card nd then restart it if problem occurs then tell me!!!
Buttons Up, 04 Aug 2008You don't have to press the power key to do the hard reset. The three things that needs to be ... moreOOOPS! My mistake!
You do have to press the power key once you've pressed and held the [*]  and [call answer] keys together, otherwise the hard-reset won't happen.
Sorry about that.
After reading the post again, I've realized that vGc}'s problem with the phone was getting the symptoms to the "white screen of death" which can still be solved by doing the hard-reset as sort of first-aid treatment.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Thanks Buttons UP I have tried using restore factory setting but that didn't help. Tell me how... moreYou don't have to press the power key to do the hard reset. The three things that needs to be pressed are the [*]  and [call answer] keys. The phone will then ask for the security code. If you haven't changed it yet, it should be 12345.
There is no need to format the memory card if all applications and/or themes you've added to the phone are all in the phone's built-in memory. If you've backed up your contacts, messages, calendar entries and web booksmarks into your memory card and then format it then that wouldn't make any sense.
Use Nokia PC Suite to back up these data into your pc instead if formatting the memory card is needed (although I doubt that you should use your PC to do that as it would end up corrupted if you don't know how).

Turn off the phone then wait for 1 minute, then press (green call key) + (*) + (3) + (power switch) all together and wait until the pin code request or country selection option.
If you want to real clear the phone then I suggest you to just backup all your data. First format the memory card then hard reset the phone and again format the memory card.
my firmware wishlist for n82:
1.ngage should be built-into the rom already.
2.nokia maps 2.0 should also be built into the rom.
3.screen brightness should be set to the normal brightness.
4.menu transitions just like on fp2
5.lessen the sensitivity of the auto-rotate screen feature
6.increase the volume of the loudspeaker when playing music
7.soften the volume of the microphone in encoding audio during video recording.
8.auto recognition of enhancement plugged into the 3.5mm jack
*nokia kindly read...thanks...
i was about to update my phone's firmware for the first time but it said that i have the latest firmware. i guess i just need to change the product code of my unit. my n82 is locked to etisalat network. i need the APAC firmware version. what's the product code for the APAC (asia-pacific china) version? anybody can help? thanks.
Thanks Buttons UP I have tried using restore factory setting but that didn't help. Tell me how to do hard reset. It is not that my phone is restarting. The problem is as follows:-
The phone simply hangs. Sometime only a white light appears and some time the it advances the second step when two hands joins, Noika initial start up, and then it hangs. Sometimes after finding the network after these process it hangs. There is no ongoing application running though. Sometimes while listening to radio it hangs.
Please tell me how to clear phone internal memory I will even clear them.
Every time it hangs I cannot switch off the phone all I need to do is to take out the battery while still it is in hanged situation as no other things simple work at that time.
Please suggest I am getting real nightmare.

Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Hey My phone is hanging just like anything twice every minute. I called Nokia they suggested m... moreAgreed with what person before me said. I don't have this phone personally, but I recommend reinstalling the firmware regardless of the version you have, just to make sure it's clean, especially if it has only been doing it recently
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Hey My phone is hanging just like anything twice every minute. I called Nokia they suggested m... moreIt might be some application running in the background, and it's eating up your ram. If that were a virus then it should be doing more to the phone than just restart it. Your phone is still covered by warranty, and the store must still help you. If you're really desparate, you can do a hard-reset to restore everything to how it was when you first turned it on. Do so if you already know it, but if not I won't be telling just yet so you could decide as many things in the phone would be deleted.
Hey My phone is hanging just like anything twice every minute. I called Nokia they suggested me to upgrade the software. But I found that my phone has already the latest firmware as I bought this phone only a month back. I contacted the retailer from where I bought this device they by pass me saying that it is because of some virus. I scanned the devise using quick heal anti virus but no threat was detected.
Please help me asking from everyone as I am now totally dejected with the performance of my N82.
