Re-formatting a mobile phone

I'm not sure if anyone has actually done this, but i was wondering does anyone have any tips on how to go about formatting the phone, and is there any programs that will back up the phone (besides nokia phone suite) Is reseting the phone to original settings the best choice?

Phone: Nokia 6630

1. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery power left.

2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card.

3. Switch-off your 6600 phone.

4. Press and hold 3 keys;

Green dial key, * (star key) & no. 3 key and then press the power on/off to swtich on the 6600 phone.

Remember, do not let go all of the keys and hold keys until you see a formatting word screen show!

5. After a few minutes when the Full phone formatting completed, your 6600 will back to original system and factory setting.

Re: Re-formatting a mobile phone

I formated it, when i removed my mmc i was able to backup my files using nokia pc suite and then i formated the phone AND the mmc. The phone is nice and new.

I treat my phone like I do my pc hehe always adding stuff on it.
