n85 format

i got a n85 which is almost a month old now... from my sister..

now im planning to restore everything she changed to its fresh state..
but i read in the forum tht once u "restore factory settings" most of the bundle packs .. like ngage and others gets removed..
so now im thinking of just formatting my memory card.. and make the rest of the changes manually..

so can anyone tell me.. if i format the card.. (which had most of the games installed) i.e in trial .... which will obviously go away...
so when i try to open those games how will the phone behave.. will it reinstall or tell me tht the files are missing?

so is it safe to format the card?

If you format the memory card, as you said, any files on the memory card will be lost including your games. The Ngage software will probably not tell you the games are missing, it'll simply remove them from the list of games installed. If it does tell you they're missing, it'll only be a simple message to say they've been removed from the list.

If you restore factory settings, Ngage will probably be completely removed (it was on my phone), but it's dead easy to download and reinstall again. Just go to and follow the instructions. It'll still work just the same after being reinstalled.
