I had the same problem a few days ago. Any app was hanging (app closed etc). It happend something wrong with the fonts of phone. I did format and it worked. Try to backup anything useful, and then format it... :-?

if you type the code *#7370#
into your phone it will "format" it (basicaly it will return the phone to exactly how it was when it came out of the box). you will lose ALL the data that you put on the phone yourself ie contacts etc!

Have full battery and charger plugged in. As if you run out of power during
reset the phone will be completely dead. Not even NSC can bring it back

ok, ill make sure its pluged into the charger... and ill back all my Contacts to a PC.. but.. is it going to ask for a code or something after the installation?? coz i donno if the original (12345) code has been changed or not.. is there anyway to check it before i format it and get stucked with a device locked with a code somebody changed it?
is it going to ask about PIN and/or PUK codes too??
thanx

It will ask the security code (default 12345)
You could try changing it first in Settings menu.

the problem is that its not letting me get into the [Tools/Settings/Phone/General] to view my settings, it always give me:
App. closed
gs
CONE 14
so if the code been changed before, the format code wont reset it? and the device will be useless??

It asks for the code just after you typed the hardreset code.

had the same

I had the same thing yesterday and I formatted my phone, as for my hunch. It could be somelike a virus as I received a sms message in the morning without any content then voila after that I can't type any alpha anymore only numerics.
