No other way. Try again (it can be a bit tricky to get going). When it is done, you will recognize it by the phone asking for the home country/city again at startup.

*#7370# will not reformat a N70, but just reset settings.

Try the green/3/* thing again (until you get it to work).
- Turn off PIN code requests.
- Charge the phone fully.
- Turn off the phone.
- Remove the memory card (not really needed, but I usually do it to be on the safe side).
- Put the phone on a table (easier to press the keys then, in my opinion).
- Press the three keys and keep them securely down and do not release.
- While the keys are still down, turn the power on.
- Do not release the three keys until you see the prompt for the home city.

If it doesn't work, retry until you get it right. It is easier if you have three hands.

I thought that *#7780# just reset settings and that *#7370# did a soft format whereas [Green] + [3, def]+[*, +] does a hard format.

If you perss those 3 keys or dail that number will it format everything so everything is gone or wil it be exaclty like it was when you bought it including all preinstlald progrs and videos? or what does it really do?

The phone will, more or less, be back in the state it was in when it left the factory where it was made.

It won't show at all. Keep the keys pressed until the menu for selecting the city pops up.
