Well you can try two different approaches:
1. Perform a MAJOR reset by formating the internal disk. This will totally whipe your phone to factory defaults. That is, it will also remove all installed languages except default (usually english, depending on which CDA you have or if it's branded), all themes except the default theme, some ringtones (rare cases) etc.. (nothing critical and it will not do anything with the memory card storage).
You may have to use SEUS afterwards to re-flash your phone to get it as it was "out-of-the-box" but it will most definetly work fine after the format.

To open the hidden system menu do the following by "typing":
* jogdial UP * jogdial DOWN jogdial DOWN * jogdial DOWN *
=> Select option "Format internal disk"


2. Re-flash the phones firmware using SEUS.


reinstall, symbian
