Hard Reset on Nokia N8, E7, X7

Sometimes you are stranded with your Symbian 3 phone which will not respond to your requests. The Symbian phones N8, E7, X7 doesn’t come with removable battery and hence you have to wait till the phone battery is completely discharged.

In case you cannot wait for the phone battery discharge, the only alternate for the reboot is hardreset of the phone. This can be done as below:

1) Soft Reset:

If your phone is responding, but you want to wipe the data dial *#7780#  on your phone. It wont wipe all the user data on your phone and the phone will be available to you with Factory Settings.

2) Hard Reset (phone responsive):

If your phone is responding, but you want to wipe the data dial *#7370#    or *#7780#  on your phone. It will wipe all the user data on your phone and the phone will be available to you with Factory Settings.

3) Hard Reset (phone un-responsive):

If your phone is not responding to any keys or power button, proceed with this. Hold Volume Down + Camera Key + Menu Key and press power button till the phone vibrates and restarts (roughly around 10-15 secs).

Again, it will wipe all the data on your phone and the phone will be available to you with Factory Settings.
