One possibility: You could format it with a PC based MMC reader.

I have tried the green + * + 3 key combination and the format does not work when I switch the phone back on. I am going to try the other method of *#7370#, will this remove all the rubbish on the phone.

More Codes ... (e.g. back to Factory settings)

You'll find "all" codes for the Nokia 6600 (in german) here: Removed

The formatting of the phone is doable for me, but I have an even more pressing questions: What restore can be done after the format?

I always do a FULL backup of my 6600 using the MMC application AND the NOkia PC Suite. Now, if I format my phone back to it's factory setting, my questions are:

1. SELECTIVE RESTORE
One thing that I want to restore after format is my "Contact" informations. After re-format and re-connecting to PC Suite (PCS), PCS will prompt that the phone has never been sync'ed before and need to do that. Now, if I do this, would PCS:

a). OVERWRITE the "old" Nokia data from the phone prior to the format... OR ....

b). ADD the data to the old one.

If b). is true, then I can just easily do a "Contact" restore after format and sync to PCS

2. APPS installed on MMC
I know that apps. installed on the MMC will stay there even after the phone has been re-formatted, but after the format, can I still use the application or need to re-install? I guess I am asking this questions from the point of view of Windows: You can install Windows on C:\, apps. on D:\, but if Windows is re-installed on C:\; all the apps on D:\ must be re-installed.

If indeed the apps. on the MMC need to be reinstalled, that means I have to uninstall the MMC apps PRIOR to format.

Please let me know. Thanks!

Restored Apps

I have just finished the hard format of my phone and using the Nokia Suite carried out a full restore. I had to give a new name for the phone and then carried out the restore by selecting a different device.

This has restored all previous data to my phone including the apps and they all work ok.

Re: Restored Apps

Scott,

When you sync with the PC Suite (PCS) app for the 1st time, isn't PCS will prompt you to do 1st TIME BACKUP on the newly-formatted phone? This would means that your previous data will be overwritten.

I had no problems with the Nokia Suite, I was not asked to carry out a 1st time backup.

Launch the "Memory" (Memory card) application, hit "Options" and select "Backup phone mem." from the menu.

Thanks for the FORMATTING tip

I looked everywhere for someone to tell me how to handle my problem with my 6600. It is an incredible unit but beware of those 3rd party apps floating around. There I was in the office fiddling around all happy from successfully pairing up my PC and phone. Downloading ringtones wirelessly through Suite PC in amazement like I was fresh off the boat or something. After I got tired of downloading every imaginable version of the Mission Impossible theme I ventured to Themes and apps. The themes were just great but when I got to the apps I made the mistake of installing a trial version of "HOT LOCK". I wasn' t too pleased with it so when I decided to remove it that's when the kaka hit the fan. I won't even get into the calendar screwing up but let's just say the OS crashed every 2 minutes.

Thanks to you folks here at allaboutsymbian I'm fiddling with my joystick again. Tomorrow I go the the office and get N'sync'd with Outlook for all my lost contacts and I'm back in business. Almost bought another phone there for a second. THANKS AGAIN!

The moral is: watch out for them apps!

That's a very good moral!
But let's face it. When we get our 6600s we all need to play with them a lot more than they can handle. And after we're done playing and installing every single thing we can find we do mostly find ourselves using just 1-2 extra apps and just using it as a phone again

Cool Useful helps : Full phone formatting a 6600!

I don't respectfully agree with what is said by Reallis. I use my 6600 ofr professional reasons and thanks to the 6600 for instance I don't need anymore my palm, I can make pictures and send them directly to my Customers. It's really a powerful tool,
