Formatting an N82, how?

Hi all,

I'm going to be selling my N82 and I want to clear all my user data out of the phone, but I want to keep the firmware and the basic programs that came with the phone. Should I be doing a hard reset or a soft reset? I read a few different options in a thread about the N81, will all these steps work on the N82?

Here's the thread I'm referring to: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=80320

Thanks for all your help!

Smile Correct

Do a hard reset or even better a Vulcan Death Grip . See my post here :
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=81021

Default Nokia securitty code : 12345

Format memorycard : Menu > ... > Memorycard > Options > Format .
Now your phone is shop clean .
Good luck selling !

Thanks, I'll give it a shot tonight.

I did change the product code (or something) before using NSS, so that I could get the firmware update. Do you know if any of that information will change?

Smile ROM stays intact

The firmware or ROM wouldn't change by hard reset .
To avoid future problems , inform the new owner . So he will be a happy user , as otherwise there could be confusion because of the difference between the actual firmware productcode and the productcode on the label underneath the battery .

Each time a description of the change, there is always plenty to talk about around the world. They are not exempt. A statement usually is: "i have to change almost immediately versions, so do not expect me to date continue to attack ...
